An exhibit from the South Carolina State Museum on display at the Horry County Museum
The Horry County Museum will exhibit, Mama, Let’s Make a Moon, beginning June 1, 2016. The exhibit will feature original illustrations from Lowcountry award-winning artist and children’s book author, Clay Rice.
Taken from the pages of Rice’s children’s book, Mama, Let’s Make a Moon, these original hand-cut illustrations weave their way through the mountains of the Appalachia to bring the characters towards core family values such as love of family, making something from nothing and just plain having fun.
In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will host a silhouette cutting and presentation on Saturday, June 18, 2016. This is an opportunity for guests to bring their children to the museum to have their silhouette portrait made by Clay Rice. Space is limited, so please reserve your portrait sitting today. The available time slots are between 10:00 AM-11:45 AM and 1:00 PM-3:00 PM. The silhouette cuttings are $42 for two copies of the same person and $10 for each additional copy. Please call (843) 915-5320 to reserve your spot. A free performance by Clay Rice will take place in the McCown Auditorium from 12:00-12:45 PM.
