Navigating ArtFields 2023

ArtFields 2023 covers the entire downtown area in Lake City, SC! Sometimes visitors arrive to town, make their way to Main Street, and then ask “Where is ArtFields?!” The easy answer is that ArtFields is all around you once you arrive. But we know that visitors want to make a plan and explore town with a purpose, so we’re sharing our top navigation tips so you can enjoy the festival to the max.

1. Start at one of our Activation Stations so you can be checked in to vote for our two $12,500 People’s Choice Awards. These locations are the Welcome Center at 103 W Main Street, the ROB at 245 S Church Street, Jones-Carter Gallery at 105 Henry Street, or TRAX Visual Art Center at 122 Sauls Street.


2. Use the map to explore each venue in the district you begin in. This year, we’ve split all our venues into five districts, easily color coded with sidewalk stickers and dots on the map. The map is available in multiple forms this year for your convenience!

3. With each of the digital map methods, you can click on the venue and see what artwork is on display in that space, plus read about each artist. Every competition piece will also have the artwork information, statement, and voting ID on the label at each artwork.

4. Simply move from venue to venue around town and take in the hundreds of artworks! Whether you stick to following a map or not, you can find artwork in all the venues marked with orange venue decals on the doors and by following the “more art” arrows and signs around town. ArtFields Jr venues are marked with a blue JR and contain art from our talented South Carolina student artists.

5. If you’re having trouble finding anything, our Welcome Center at 103 W Main Street is always staffed during the event with volunteers who are ready to help!
