Artistic visions take shape in many different forms, ideas

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions. 

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the Historic Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival Street Fest, we asked: “What’s comes to mind when you hear the word ‘art’?”

Cindy Sturgis, Hilton Head Island: “I just see a lot of things – paintings, colors, jewelry, books – like a kaleidoscope.”

Denise Pope, Okatie: “The first thing I thought was ‘pretty.’ If you want something for your wall, it should be appealing, eye-catching – short answer: Pretty.”

Ann Graham, Bluffton: “An appreciation for beautiful things. You have to have ‘art’ to have ‘heart.’”












Kelly Graham, Bluffton: “A way of life. And a way of seeing the world that’s constantly changing. Because everyone was born an artist.”

Minnie Lifton, Bluffton: “I think about all types of art – visual arts, theatre, a masterpiece.”
