native island heritage and culture gets the star treatment

The Arts Center's Annual Taste of Gullah Celebration, held on a Saturday in February on the arts center grounds.

Residents and visitors alike revel in an afternoon of Gullah entertainment such as storytelling from Louise Cohen, music from the Voices of El Shaddai, fascinating lectures on the Gullah culture, and so much more! In the spotlight is mouthwatering Gullah cuisine — sizzling ribs and chicken on the grill, seasoned-to-perfection shrimp and grits, delicious okra gumbo, and some Lowcountry favorites — giving you a true taste of Gullah.
 
The festivities also include Gullah-inspired crafts for all ages, basket-weaving demonstrations, and, inside the Walter Greer Gallery, the Art League of Hilton Head’s annual exhibit and sale of The Arts Ob We People, one of the largest displays of original work by emerging and acclaimed artists representing the life of Gullah people in the Lowcountry.
 
This free festival is held as part of the Arts Center’s outreach and educational commitment to our greater community, and all ages are welcome to attend.

Louse Cohen tells stories in the native Gullah language.
