"Clemson University supports a growing creative community and will increase the economic development for the surrounding neighborhoods," said Bob Morris, president of the Community Foundation.  The grant is partnered with a lease for a facility currently located in the Village of West Greenville along Pendleton Street. Clemson announced plans in August to open the art center.
