The South Carolina State Museum celebrated South Carolina art and artists Saturday with hands-on activities, artist demonstrations and behind-the-scenes tours of the art collection.

Art Day offered a unique look into South Carolina art and artists with activities for all ages.

Guests enjoyed live music and special guided behind-the-scenes tours of the museum's art storage areas, which contain over 4,000 works of art.

"South Carolina has an incredible representation of visual culture across the state, spanning over 300 years," said Paul Matheny, chief art curator, S.C. State Museum. "This rich cultural diversity is easily overlooked. Art Day at the State Museum brings our visual culture to life for our statewide community and beyond."
