Internationally known artist J. Renee has designed her version of an electric chair that was used for the execution of 14-year-old George Stinney, Jr. back in 1944 in Clarendon County. The chair is on display at the University Place Gallery in downtown Florence as part of the Jamestown Foundation’s ‘No Place Like Home’ exhibit.
