The Horry County Museum and Coastal Carolina University’s Athenaeum Press were recently awarded a Certificate of Special Recognition from the South Carolina Federation of Museums for their combined work in recent years. The multi-year collaboration between the two spans the course of two projects: a physical and digital publication on the rural south, The Wealth of Nothing, and the multi-phase exhibition, archive, and book project on African American soldiers during World War II, A War on Two Fronts. “This partnership offers a model for museum and university collaborations, providing the museum with original content and undergraduate students with hands-on experience creating innovative and digitally-enhanced exhibitions” stated SCFM President Natalie Hefter.


The Certificate of Special Recognition is awarded to those who are deemed to have made special contributions to museums or demonstrated significant interest in the programs, goals, and polices of a South Carolina museum by providing services, manpower, money and/or ideas or have provided special help or support to museums in the state.
