January 22, 2014 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Tabitha Safdi

Lancaster artist Bob Doster is best known in South Carolina for his stainless steel palmetto sculptures. These sculptures and his other works adorn businesses, corporate headquarters, cities and private homes all over the country. 

What is less known about this South Carolina artist is that for more than thirty years, Doster has given his time to public schools, where he teaches and mentors students in the arts. Over the years, he’s worked with more than a 150,000 students. As a result of Doster's service to schools, there are student-designed metal sculptures that decorate campuses from one end of the state to the other.
