The Arts Grand Strand

The Arts Grand Strand is a 501(c)3 organization devoted to promoting events related to The Arts in our area.

Founded in 2015 by John Morken, a retired international banker and classical pianist, the group was created to raise awareness of arts events in the area, foster growth in attendance at performances and enhance the image of The Beach by highlighting fine arts events in our area.

Since Morken’s passing in 2020, local artist and gallery owner William H. Miller continues the organization’s work. This includes maintaining the Grand Strand Arts Trail, a collection of galleries we’re proud to include as a key part of the Myrtle Beach Arts & Gallery Trail.
