SEWE MONUMENTAL SCULPTURE EXHIBIT IN MOUNT PLEASANT, SC
For nearly forty years, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) has proudly celebrated the finest in wildlife art and the sporting lifestyle. A celebration of the great outdoors through fine art, live entertainment and special events, SEWE is a place where artists, craftsmen, collectors and sportsmen come together to discover new things through a shared passion for wildlife.
The SEWE sculpture exhibit at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park is meant to be a destination for a cultural experience, as well as the beginning of what will become a trail throughout the Lowcountry. The six monumental sculptures of animals indigenous to the Lowcountry are a fitting backdrop to the waters and marshes of the Cooper River. Teeming with wildlife, the Cooper River’s tidal waters are a reminder of the rich habitat of the region and the importance of conservation and sustainability.
SEWE hopes to celebrate public sculpture and inspire additional investment in both public and private spaces throughout our region. The exhibit is a collaboration between SEWE, Town of Mount Pleasant, Brookgreen Gardens (Pawley’s Island, SC), and individual artists.
SEWE will continue to seek funding from public and private partners to celebrate the arts, conservation, and enhance the visitor experience. It is hopeful in the future this sculpture exhibit will grow into a trail, connecting public and commercial spaces through reminders of the history of both wildlife and art for which our region is so well known.
Exhibiting artists include Walter Matia, Scott Penegar, Stefan Savides, David Turner, and Bart Walter. Visit the sculpture exhibit at the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, located at 99 Harry M. Hallman Jr Boulevard at the base of the Ravenel Bridge.
