An artful visit to JoCo
Johnston County has truly discovered the artful advantage of converting historic school buildings into auditorium space for the performing arts. Both in Clayton and Benson, historic renovated school auditoriums offer theatre productions, live music, plays, and much more in very intimate surroundings. Listings of area performances can be found on our calendar of events.
More visual and public art can be found around the county in the Town of Clayton and the Frank Creech Art Gallery at Johnston Community College. Visitors may also find sculptures in Downtown Clayton and art along the greenways while out enjoying a walk. Local artists and potters are often found at farmer’s markets and their creations adorn the walls of area businesses like Double Barley Brewery or Grapes and Grounds coffee shop.
