Low Country Dreaming

Beaufort South Carolina

Bench Project
“Low Country Dreaming” by Artist Omar Patterson

“Artist Omar Patterson’s “Low Country Dreaming” evokes iconic images of the Low Country – sunset, palm trees, and marsh grass – along with historically significant African-American figures – Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and Beaufort’s legendary Robert Smalls.  Patterson wanted his bench, sponsored by the Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce and situated outside that building, to have “images that were significant to Beaufort’s African-Americans.”
