North Myrtle Beach Museum Exhibits

Black History Month Exhibit

February 8 through March 2

The exhibit will feature the work of local artist Beverly Hill. Ms. Hill showed an early interest in art beginning in the first grade and continues to pursue this passion. Her early work showcases notable people such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Harriet Tubman among others. Hill's work is primarily in charcoals. Currently, Hill is seeking a degree in culinary arts at Horry Georgetown Technical College.

The exhibit will also include "Harriet's Legacy", a handmade quilt in honor of Harriet Beecher Stowe, an abolitionist instrumental in organizing the Underground Railroad. Each quilt block is an actual symbol used to guide slaves on their arduous and dangerous escape from slavery. The quilt was made from local quilter Kate Landon. Landon is a member of the Brunswick Quilters. For additional information on the quilters, visit www.brunswickquilters.com.
