Volunteer Opportunity


Help Create A Large Public Community Art Piece at Riverfront Park, Columbia, SC.

Help construct a large piece of public artwork in Riverfront Park May 8-11.
4pm-7pm Tuesday through Thursday (other times available)

We need at least 20 people per day to help Khaldoune Bencheikh, community artist, to create the next in his series. The piece is made from natural materials and when complete, is a feeder for birds and other animals who make the park their home. This work of art will be a part of the collaborative opening of Art on the Trail, a statewide series of environmental art along the Palmetto Tail, on May 11 (free to the public).

facts about pocket productions

Did you know that ArtRageous, Pocket Productions' spontaneous art series, was inspired by Improv Everywhere? This exciting public performance group based out of NYC was started by a Columbia, SC, native. On April 5, the founder, Charlie Todd, caused a scene in Columbia, SC.

Did you know that the first Playing After Dark event showcased the talents of eight local artists and had 65 audience members?  Great things start small.

Pocket Productions has showcased the artwork of over 50 local visual artists, reaching over 10,000 residents throughout the Midlands.

Pocket Productions has worked with over 30 organizations, including the Columbia Museum of Art, the Columbia Classical Ballet, the SC Philharmonic, and the Palmetto Conservation Foundation.

Did you know that the first ArtRageous event was funded by the Arts Institute and the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties? Since this initial event, we have brought over 20 spontaneous events to the City of Columbia and Richland County that engage the general public with art.

The 2012-2013 season is sponsored by the City of Columbia, the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties and the South Carolina Arts Commission. Thank you for your generous support!
