Tapp’s Art Center in Columbia, SC, Offers Works by Governor’s School Students

The Tapp’s Art Center in Columbia, SC, will present an exhibit for Youth Art Month, featuring student works from the SC Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics at Coker College, on view from Mar. 6 - 28, 2014.

People in the Columbia area will get a fresh look at contemporary art when the SC Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics displays new works. GSSM students have always been able to explore their creative side during a three-week “Art in the Interim” master class but now the STEM based school offers students a year-round, Open Arts Studio experience!

This exhibit is offered in conjunction with National Youth Art Month and features a variety of innovative 2D and 3D works of art created by students in grades 11 and 12.

The Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics was founded in 1988 under the leadership of former Governor Carroll Campbell and Charles W. Coker, then-president of Sonoco Products Company. The mission of the GSSM is to offer our state’s most academically motivated students a unique learning environment that strengthens their ability to think critically, stimulates the joy of learning and fosters the excitement of discovery through hands-on scientific research. The purpose of GSSM is to positively impact South Carolina’s economic development through the cultivation of our current students and alumni, who are our state’s future political and business leaders.
