It’s a night that is all about culture, education and “life on the water.” And, it’s happening at one of the most scenic areas in the area, Pin Point Heritage Museum on the Moon River.
“An Evening with Maggie and Jackson Evans,” part of Coastal Heritage Society’s Cultured Coast event series, will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. July 26 at Pin Point Heritage Museum.
“Event attendees can immerse themselves in an evening of jazz music, enjoy two complimentary drink tickets to our wine and beer bar, see artist Tim Foster creating a live mural with the theme ‘Life on the Water’ and learn more about the Gullah culture, language, religion and stories of the Pin Point community,” according to Holly Elliott of the Coastal Heritage Society.
Jazz lovers are probably familiar with local jazz musicians Maggie and Jackson Evans from their performances at live music hotspots like Rancho Alegre and The Jazz Corner in Hilton Head.
Local artist Tim Foster focuses on photography, painting and sculpture and uses his work “to inspire others to create a dialogue with their communities that can aid in unifying the appreciation of the beauty of the coastal environment with the importance of its protection and conservation.”
Elliott also explains the Cultured Coast event series offers an exclusive array of social happenings “designed in the spirit of connecting with the community, providing learning opportunities and promoting active participation among the Society's members and the community.”
This event is one of a small handful of these uniquely curated evenings presented by Coastal Heritage Society this year.
“The event is a really excellent value, considering all of the wonderful cultural experiences we will offer throughout the evening,” Elliott says. “We hope people come out and enjoy themselves, while learning more about the Gullah/Geechee heritage right here in their own backyard.”
