There is always something happening at the Museum of York County in Rock Hill, South Carolina (MYCO). The Talk of the Town Carolinas video team visited the Museum of York County on Saturday January 20, 2018 to give you a glimpse of the type of activities and exhibits you will find at MYCO. On this particular day, the museum was hosting their annual Come Draw With Us event which featured artists from the Catawba River Art Guild and Winthrop University art students. The event allowed museum visitors, kids and adults, to draw with the professionals side by side in the museum’s galleries. Also featured on Saturday was a raven who paints and picks up recycled items which was hosted by the Carolina Raptor Center and their trained professionals. In this video, see interviews with Cate Crane site manager, Cynthia Spratley Family/Education Program Manager, and Dr. Bradley Sabelli President of the Catawba River art Guild.
