An afternoon with world-renowned sculptor Alex Palkovich

The Friends of the Beaufort Library will hold a public art installation celebration at the Saint Helena Branch Library on Saturday, October 27, at 2 pm. “On the Way To the Market,” a National Sculpture Society award-winning bronze sculpture by Alex Palkovich, captures an African-American woman gracefully transporting a basket of vegetables on her head. The sculpture was purchased by the Friends to commemorate the history of the African descendants in the Lowcountry, and will be a permanent installation at the library. The sculptor will be on hand to provide background about his work and to answer questions. Refreshments will be served, and all ages are invited to attend this special event. B
