An artistic community. Discovered.

At the University of South Carolina Beaufort, you’re never more than just a few steps or moments away from a rewarding cultural experience. From showcasing local artists to bringing in national shows, you can always find something unexpected to experience with the arts at USCB.

Since our inception, the arts have played a critical role at USCB. Today, USCB’s Historic Beaufort campus is an arts and cultural hub for people throughout the community. It’s no wonder Beaufort has been recognized as one of America’s top 100 art towns by author John Villani, designated as a Small City Arts Destination by AmericanStyle Magazine, and is known as the happiest coastal town by Coastal Living.

USCB and the surrounding communities provide a vibrant art community through:

  • The Center for the Arts on the Historic Beaufort campus, which holds a 400+ person auditorium, two public art galleries, a drawing and painting studio, ceramics studio, and 3D design studio.
  • ARTworks, a 12,000-square-foot community arts center, theatre, and gallery in the Beaufort Town Center.
  • Our nearly 20 art galleries in Beaufort and the surrounding Sea Islands, with hundreds of local residents contributing to the art scene.
  • The Sea Islands Center on the Historic Beaufort campus, which includes a gallery, faculty offices, and a studio for students.

If you haven’t discovered the art scene in Beaufort, it’s never been a better time to do so. Discover creative treasures, emerging artists, and entertaining shows that bring art to life in the Lowcountry.
