Dynamic photographer Lydia See spent 11 months as a resident at Hub Bub, the art mecca of South Carolina, where she detailed her experience on the city of Spartanburg's podcast.
Throughout her residency at Hub Bub, See was able to work on her own creative projects while also engaging in community work that introduced art to those who are not typically exposed to the craft. On the July 19 podcast, she discussed her amazing experience working and teaching at Hub Bub as someone who usually considers herself quite low-key.
"Being able to engage a population in creative practice and teach as much as I was teaching was amazing, but truly exhausting," See said on the podcast. "It was high pressure in that I was not just interacting with an art crowd, and that was a greatest responsibility."
Hub Bub has been a staple in Spartanburg's culture for a number of years. The art program allows generous and talented artists to take residency above its Showroom Gallery and Performance Hall, allows the artists to present their work and gives them the opportunity to teach the community about art from their unique perspective.
