Is Greenville becoming new hub for both emerging, veteran artists?
People move to Greenville for a variety of reasons — weather, housing, air quality, the economy, the mountains, career opportunities. But recently, more and more people are relocating here for one big reason — the Greenville arts scene.
“Our cultural amenities in Greenville are miraculous, given that we’re a city of about 65,000 people,” says Alan Ethridge, executive director at Metropolitan Arts Council (MAC). “The arts in Greenville are an amazing factor in both tourism and quality of life.”
Established artists, as well as emerging artists, are relocating to Greenville for the energetic arts community and innumerable opportunities. “We are very fortunate to live in such an area where the arts are greatly valued,” Ethridge says.
