If you live within Myrtle Beach city limits, chances are good that you received an elegant cardstock mailer urging you to vote “yes” to fund construction of the much-touted Myrtle Beach Performing Arts Center. The verbiage on the card is compelling: “The proposed performing arts center addition onto the Myrtle Beach Convention Center will raise the curtain on cultural activity downtown,” it reads. “It’s the kind of versatile venue that will be an asset for area performing groups – from elementary schools to colleges to professionals. Your vote will also economically boost area hotels, restaurants and businesses.” And if you didn’t get a mailer, you might have seen one of the digital billboards on U.S. 17 Bypass heralding the same thing.
