The Arts Initiative

A curated collection of personalities brings the spirit and culture of the South to the Bluff each and every day.

The Arts Initiative
The Arts Initiative at Palmetto Bluff will foster the pursuit of artistic innovation and expression through a diverse curation of artists, craftsmen, musicians, makers, and chefs. Through year-round programming, unfolding across Palmetto Bluff’s unspoiled natural canvas, The Arts Initiative will create a dialogue between art, the community, and the beauty of the Bluff itself.

Art is central to the Palmetto Bluff experience. Countless bands, painters, crafters, and artisans have graced our community over the years, and, with the launch of The Arts Initiative, we aim to keep the momentum going.

This year, we’re further expanding the roster of talent, taking inspiration from a cross-section of elements designed to tell the many stories unfolding at the Bluff. These are the tales worth telling, the voices worth hearing, and the places worth exploring.
