The Island Packet: John Mellencamp is rocking Daufuskie. But not in the way you think

Daufuskie Island has always offered different strokes for different folks.

Now those different strokes have gone big and bold in the form of a
self-portrait by part-time islander John Mellencamp.

He’s known to the world as the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

But it is as a visual artist that the star has chosen to join 25 other Daufuskie
artists now displaying their work at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head
Island.

“I’m thrilled that he chose to be a part of our show,” said its organizer, Jenny
Hersch of Daufuskie. “We asked if he would participate, and he said, ‘I’m a
Daufuskie artist’ and the piece arrived from Indianapolis.”
