"Sandy Islanders: A People of the Land" was curated by photo documentarian Vennie Deas Moore in 1997 and looks at the lives of individuals and families on the island. The traveling exhibit comes from the McKissik Museum of the University of Columbia, and will be installed at Brookgreens' Lowcountry Center.
"The Myrtle Beach area's Gullah culture continues to inspire locals and visitors," said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. "We are fortunate that this culture is still alive in places like Sandy Island, and encourage everyone seeking to learn more about our community to study it, as well as the other facets of our wonderful local heritage."
"Sandy Islanders: A People of the Land" is on display daily from 12 to 4:30 p.m. and is free with a garden admission. Moore will also present a lecture on the exhibit on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015, at 1 p.m.
