The Greenville Center for the Creative Arts (GCCA), a newly launched Greenville, SC-area non-profit dedicated to enriching the local community through art, is rallying area and GCCA artists in support of a beloved fixture in the Village of West Greenville community – acclaimed food truck Ribs ‘N Such.
Less than 4 months old, the GCCA is using one of its first major events to bring its mission statement to life by organizing efforts to use art to directly benefit the surrounding community. In conjunction with a GCCA open house combining demonstrations, food and fun, the GCCA’s August 23, 2015, from 1-5pm, Community Day will gather celebrated artists from the GCCA and Village of West Greenville in support of one of the community’s favorite BBQ restaurants/food trucks, Ribs ‘N Such.
As evidence of the popularity of Ribs ‘N Such with the surrounding community, led by Dumah Morgan and GCCA artists will be joined by artists from the Village of West Greenville to provide James Hester’s food truck with a completely unique and utterly unforgettable hand-drawn paint job. The design will be reflective of signature elements in the Village, his church community and his specialty, Texas style BBQ.
Participating sponsors include: Clinkscales Chevrolet, Dumah Morgan, Devobal, Pinstripers Original, Village Grind, Lily Pottery, Village of West Greenville, Clemson Visual Arts-Greenville, Community Journals, and GCCA.
