The Bascom presents our 6th annual juried Member Challenge: PLACE, an exhibit in our Thompson Gallery. As makers and creators, human beings experience the world as both a place given to them and as a place they can mark, shape, and mold. The places that become homes to us offer familiarity, comfort, and even companionship. Join The Bascom in embracing PLACE as our annual theme for 2022.
The Members Challenge is The Bascom's longest running exhibition and provides an important opportunity for Bascom community artists

The mission of the Food Pantry of Highlands is to provide nutritious food to anyone who meets the income eligibility guidelines for USDA food. In the winter months, the economies of Highlands and Cashiers slow to a standstill. This, combined with increased heating costs, drains funds from the family budget that would normally be spent on food.
Join us for stories, music, and movement at Family Storytime, every Thursday morning!
Known as the “Cheers” of Bookstores, the Bookworm in Highlands is affiliated with the Hudson Library: all books are donated; all staff are volunteers; and all funds go to help support the library. More than a retail store, we are a community service offering carefully sorted donated books to provide the best quality at a used bookstore price.
Kids Zone features a variety of fun and interesting programs where kids can explore art, nature, science & more! Best for ages 5 and up.
The indigenous peoples of the Appalachian region saw their homelands as sacred places, connected to the spiritual world at every turn. In nearly 100 caves in the region, they made cave art to materialize some of those connections. This lecture will provide an overview of the ancient cave art of Appalachia and how it relates to both early and living Naïve American cultures.
