If youâ€™ve been to see us for a summer vacation, spring break or quick getaway in the last year and a half then youâ€™ve probably seen the famous Charles Fraser statue. The life-sized bronze statue of Charles Fraser and his alligator, located at Compass Rose Park, is part of the public art fund created by The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry in 2010. The goal of the fund is to install public art and sculptures to beautify our Island.
This year the public art fund is bringing 20 pieces of outdoor sculpture to the Coastal Discovery Museum from September 25 through December 31. There will be works of art from local, national and international artists, and by the end of the year one piece will be selected to remain in Hilton Head and become a permanent part of our public art collection.
If youâ€™re planning a visit between now and the end of the year, this is a free, must-see walking tour of some fantastic art. So whether youâ€™re into modern, classic or contemporary, come to Hilton Head this fall and winter and get artsy with us!
