COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina State Museum is opening a new exhibition of items from its extensive collection of artwork.

The museum in Columbia has more than 4,000 works of art and hand-made objects, many of which have never been on public display.

The new exhibit is entitled “ART: A Collection of Collections” and features fine art, decorative art and folks art from the museum.

Included are an engraving made in 1591 which is the earliest work in the museum’s art collection as well as Catawba Indian pottery and a western town created out of coat hangers by a folk artist.

The exhibit opened at the museum on Saturday. The museum is closed on Easter Sunday.
