FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK
July 6, 2018
"Our goal is to enrich lives by uplifting our community. Bringing art walks to the heart of Myrtle Beach helps promote a robust and vibrant downtown, supporting local businesses and creative entrepreneurs. These events nurture an epicenter for the arts and provide a cultural hub for all."
GODDESS OF THE SEA
The Goddess of The Sea, a bronze statue created by nationally-renowned artist Kristen Visbal, was installed Wednesday, April 18, 2018. The artwork was designed especially for Plyler Park, with the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop. The 12 foot high sculpture was more than 10 years in the making. The Goddess of the Sea celebrates Myrtle Beach’s exciting, majestic and playful ocean-side spirit. It represents a major public art installation for the city and is destined to become an iconic landmark for residents and visitors.

Hop in the car, take a drive, see beautiful things, challenge your mind and enjoy gourmet dining! The Arts Grand Strand has started the area’s first Art Trail with 18 fine art galleries and 3 restaurants participating. Laid out on a 4x9 rack card, the Art Trail stretches the entire 60 mile length of the Grand Strand from Calabash to Conway to Georgetown.
