Art exhibit celebrates Beaufort's 300th birthday

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - An art exhibit opening at Beaufort's City Hall features collections celebrating the coastal city's 300th birthday.

The Beaufort Gazette reports the "Take Two" exhibit opens Thursday and continues through Feb. 3 in an unfinished space in City Hall.

The exhibit includes renderings of what sites in the city's historic district might look like in the future. It also includes more than 100 photos of the hands of Beaufort residents as well as a portfolio of fine art prints inspired by the city's history.

Each section of the exhibit has been displayed previously, so the new showing is entitled "Take Two."
