Arts & Culture

Much of the land that now comprises Liberty County was ceded to the English by the Creeks in the Treaty of Savannah on May 21, 1733, and some residents today trace their heritage back to those early settlers. As a result, the area has a diverse blend of residents whose ties to the land date back hundreds of years and newcomers who have brought other cultures to the area, whether they came with jobs or in search of a milder climate. Hinesville and the surrounding areas offer a variety of art and cultural experiences, from weekly art classes to annual celebrations.

Hinesville Area Arts Council Blues & BBQLiberty County Arts & Culture Offerings:

The Hinesville Area Arts Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing art of all media within the community. The group has a downtown Hinesville storefront where artists offer monthly exhibitions or where students of all ages can learn skills such as figure drawing and oil painting.

Bryant Commons Amphitheatre opened in early 2013 with a show by country crooner Darryl Worley. The venue, made possible through a public-private partnership that includes the city of Hinesville and Hinesville Downtown Development Authority, also is the backdrop for annual events. The family-friendly, music-driven Blues & BBQ cookoff is among the venue's premiere events, as well as the Small World Festival, an annual showcase of the area's cultural diversity.

The Hinesville Farmers Market, which draws crowds to downtown Hinesville on Thursday afternoons spring through fall, often features live musicians, local craftsmen and monthly cooking demonstrations.

Liberty Theatre Company is the performing-arts arm of the Hinesville Area Arts Council, and its players typically produce two shows per year. Recent productions have included "Clue: The Musical" and "Barefoot in the Park." The theatre company provides both an expression opportunity for aspiring thespians of all ages and a cultural experience for theatre-goers, with productions often staged in Hinesville, Midway and Fort Stewart.

Liberty History CenterThe Liberty County History Center operates a downtown Hinesville museum that chronicles the Liberty Independent Troop, which has served as the area militia for 225 years since it was first mustered into service in October 1861 at coastal Sunbury.

The Midway Museum and Fort Morris State Historic Site, both in Midway, keep the area's colonial roots on display and pay tribute to Liberty County's early days, when the Port at Sunbury was a critical point of entry for imports and key to the American Revolution. Both destinations offer an in-person look at life in the past. While the Midway Museum caters to the finer side of life with tea-time events, the more adventurous types can catch live cannon and musket firings at Fort Morris on several federal holidays.

Geechee Kunda in Riceboro curates the Geechee culture, which is an African-based culture deeply entrenched in Coastal Georgia as it was preserved by slaves and their descendants. In addition to operating a museum with Geechee history and artifacts, Geechee Kunda hosts cultural celebrations several times a year that include demonstrations, performances and lectures.
