“Spartanburg is a community of giving and collaboration,” Parrott said. “When local businesses invest in what we do here at Chapman, they’re saying, ‘We support award-winning arts education for our children, the visual and performing arts, history, and science.’ They’re saying that arts are a great investment.”

“I think Spartanburg is a great place to live, work, and play,” Cash, who is an avid supporter and patron of the arts, said. “The Arts Partnership has so much to offer our community, and we are very lucky to have Chapman Cultural Center at the center.”
