Local artist McClellan Douglas of Columbia expresses his support creatively.  "I decided what would be better than to come here and paint the State House," says Douglas.  "I think (supporting the arts) is extremely important.  It makes a place worth living. It's not charity, it's an investment."  A South Carolina Occupy for the Arts rally was held by artists and supporters of the arts in protest of the South Carolina Arts Commission being cut by Gov. Haley's vetoes.  The rally was held at the State House on Monday, the evening before the General Assembly returns for a veto session.
