Students and school officials were on hand at the Fine Arts Center in Greenville on Thursday to celebrate the donation of 31 pieces of art to the school.
The Fine Arts Center, located at the campus of Wade Hampton High School, now boasts more than $1 million in various works of art, said Dr. Roy Fluhrer, the center's director.
Burke Royster, Greenville County Superintendent, said the works of art, donated by Athene Annuity and Life Assurance Company, would help students there further appreciate that the world was "certainly made better by the presence of art."
The works from Athene's corporate art collection, range in value from roughly $250 to $600 each.
