COLUMBIA, SC – A film commemorating 50 years of the South Carolina Governor’s Awards for the Arts will broadcast Thursday, Jan. 5, 2023, at 8 pm on South Carolina ETV.
The South Carolina Arts Commission, the sole presenter of the Governor’s Awards for the Arts, initiated the 50-year commemoration film project featuring nine vignettes that look at South Carolina arts, culture and history through the eyes of high-profile South Carolina artists who have received the award through the past 50 years. Featured artists include John Acorn, Wilfred Delphin, Mary Jackson, Glenis Redmond, Tom Stanley, William Starrett, Leo Twiggs, Sam Wang and Cecil Williams.
Renderhouse Films of Columbia produced the project and spent several months documenting the featured artists. The hour-long broadcast will be hosted by Jackie Adams, a freelance on-camera talent based in Columbia. Adams’ experience in arts spans 25 years including positions in non-profit arts administration and leadership, arts education, and community arts. Adams also has curatorial and studio practice with Columbia College, the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, Richland County School District One, Lewis and Clark, and many statewide, regional, national artists.
Viewers can access the broadcast via livestream on the SCETV website; by using a digital antenna; or through cable, satellite and streaming live TV providers. Further information about accessing SCETV is available at scetv.org/about/channels.
Subsequent re-airings of the production will occur on other SCETV channels, including Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. on the South Carolina Channel and Jan. 23 at 2 p.m. on ETV World.
