In 2015, the SC Arts Commission designated an area in downtown Lancaster, SC as a Cultural Arts District. Public art can be seen in the form of sculptures, paintings, murals, etc. and performing arts will be found at many locations throughout the district. Bob Doster's Backstreet Studio is the oldest established artist studio in the district (1970's) and many others have followed.  Lancaster County Council of the Arts has been active in the district since its inception in the 1970's.  Native American Studies Center houses the world's largest collection of Catawba Pottery and artifacts. Visitors will find the arts alive and well here. The chamber offers a self-guided walking tour and other brochures that include 18 historical points of interest, and 23 historical markers throughout the county. Brochures can be picked up at the chamber's office: 453 Colonial Ave. 803) 283-4105 and at the Welcome Center in the historic Robert Mills Courthouse: 104 N. Main St., Lancaster.
