In 2008, renowned artist Jim Harrison partnered with 4-H Clubs in South Carolina to celebrate the Centennial Anniversary in the state. Sale of the "4-H Barn" benefited South Carolina 4-H.
"Jim Harrison's art of rural barns represents the heart of American culture capturing a sense of the past. South Carolina 4-H continues to celebrate over 100 years of teaching youth leadership, citizneship and life skills," said Shannon B. Herndon, 4-H County Extension Agent for Bamberg County. "Jim Harrison's print, "4-H Barn," captures the pride of 4-H members and alumni who belong to the world's largest youth development program."
"4-H has a nostalgic ring to it that certainly goes back to my childhood memories. So I was delighted when asked to do something that includes the 4-H symbol. I certainly remember seeing the signs on post and mail boxes and particularly this larger one on a barn," said Jim Harrison. "We are happy to be a part of the centennial anniversary celebration for such an outstanding organization that positively impacts the lives of young people across our state."
