We are grateful of the many hands that helped make this exhibition possible, and we are so proud to bring it to you in the comfort of your home. Now grab your favorite quilt and cozy up with our virtual tour of McClellanville Quilts and their Stories!
The McClellanville Arts Council was organized in 1977 by three young women who wanted to bring the fine arts, arts instruction, and cultural activities to the sleepy little fishing village where they had chosen to live.

This Pop Up media exhibit of Vennie Deas Moore’s unpublished work celebrates the people of McClellanville across incorporated lines. “Folks of McClellanville” signals a departure from Deas Moore’s classic format with past and present brought together via television screen– reflecting the transient nature of people and cultures around the world.
A selection from ETV’s “Between the Waters” podcast will accompany the exhibit and allow visitors to learn histories and hear the stories and perspective that are intrinsic in “Folks of McClellanville.”
This exhibit will be on view on view at the M.A.C. during gallery hours, on Fridays and Saturdays from 11a-3p from Sept 12th- Oct 3rd.
We would like to thank our community members Dean and Carmen Byrd for helping us make this exhibit possible. Thank you!
Everybody has a story to tell. Hear some of those stories in the new podcast Smithsonian’s Stories from Main Street. Gathered by the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program, the stories featured in these curated episodes feature the authentic voice of small-town America. The first season takes inspiration from the many people who have shared stories during national tours of the Museum on Main Street exhibition Water/Ways. The episodes dive into an essential biological and natural resource of life—water. Listen to stories that reflect water’s impact on work and play, in agriculture and landscape, and in personal experience and memory. Dip your toes in with this trailer. The season debuts Sept. 4 on most podcast platforms.
You may see all the upcoming episodes in our “GALLERY” section, please enjoy!!
