Life on the May River

Author: Robin Swift

The Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island is pleased to announce that it will host “Life on the May River,” from February 23rd until May 5th. Highlighted in this exhibit will be artistic works focusing upon the natural and cultural importance and beauty of the May River, its bluffs and its residents – both animal and human. Forty-five artists were juried into the show by Holly Koons-McCullough, curator of Fine Arts and Exhibits at the Telfair Museum. The exhibit will be in the Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Temporary Gallery at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.

This exhibit will be complemented with scientific and historic information about the May River, its watershed and the many efforts to protect it. Several organizations are joining the efforts to share this story. Friends of the Rivers, the Lowcountry Estuarium, the Lowcountry Institute, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (Oyster Recycling project), the Town of Bluffton (Natural Resources Department) and the Heyward House Historic Center have all committed to share a bit of their expertise to complete the story.

The Museum at Honey Horn is open 9-4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday 11 – 3 p.m. For further information, please contact the Museum at 843-689-3033.
