Museum, Green/Environmental, Conference
2019 Waccamaw Conference
Learn about the important connections between our coastal communities and the land, rivers, and ocean. The Waccamaw Conference is an opportunity to increase community involvement in the protection and appreciation of rivers and coasts. This year’s theme is "The Journey of Trash: Pollution to Solution," highlighting common sources and impacts of trash in waterways throughout the Winyah Bay Watershed and what you can do to help. Understanding the journey of trash from land-based sources all the way to the ocean helps communities better protect our local waterways to ensure fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for our future.The 2019 Conference will feature presentations, interactive exhibits, and a student poster contest. Our speaker this year is Dr. Stefanie Whitmire of the Clemson Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science. Dr. Whitmire will discuss her research on microplastics on the South Carolina coast in her talk. A panel discussion, “Let’s Get Trashy: Discussing the Journey of Trash with the Experts,” will feature local professionals in the field of ecology.

25th Annual Quilt Gala
The Horry County Museum Quilt Gala has become a fixture on the Grand Strand. Started in 1994, the first Gala was held on the lawn of the Horry County Courthouse. Over the years the Gala has continued to grow and is now held at the Ocean Lakes Family Campground Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach. Many different types of quilts are displayed at the Gala which represent a variety of techniques and skill levels. Categories include large quilts, medium quilts, small quilts, and a challenge quilt. The challenge category changes each year and is based on preset restrictions. The 2019 challenge theme is “Starstruck”. Quilters in this category are challenged to create a wall hanging that includes at least one recognizable eight-pointed star using any color palette or technique that they like. Winners from each category will be voted on by the public and will receive a ribbon. The blue ribbon winners from each category will be displayed in the Horry County Museum during the month of March. In addition to displaying quilts, the Gala also hosts demonstrators, speakers, and a featured quilter, Pat Sprecher. Local and regional vendors will also be on hand to support, consult, and aid the quilter with various quilting products. The Museum is grateful to have the support of local quilt guilds for many years to aid in the management, set-up, and break down of the Gala. The 25th Annual Quilt Gala will be held Friday, February 22nd and Saturday, February 23rd from 10 am-4 pm. Admission is $5.00 per person; Museum Members and children 12 and under are free.
