Cold War Propaganda Posters, Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery

The Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery features the collection of posters that demonstrates the intense ideological conflict of the Cold War.  The posters from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe present communist’s critiques of capitalism with imagery so vivid they do not require translation.  The posters also provide clear contrasting views of who was the aggressor in the conflict, the Soviet Union or United States/NATO.  The time period of the posters, from the 1940s to 1980s, highlights how although the intensity of the ideological conflict varied throughout the war, it was always present to some degree.

Photographs by West Summers IV, Sandor Teszler Library Gallery

During the fall of 2015, West Summers IV was a student in the Digital Photography course offered through the Studio Concentration at Wofford.  The images in this exhibition were taken by West during a class trip to the Goodall Environmental Studies Center at Glendale Shoals.  They reflect his skill as photographer, his love of nature and his keen observation of light, color, and details that many might overlook.

Imagine Science Films: The Wofford Tour, McMillan Theater

“The Imagine Science Film Festival in New York City – the first science film festival created by scientists – emphasizes the importance of storytelling, narrative structure and visual communication. Chosen on the basis of both scientific and artistic merit the annual roster includes genres that run the gamut from fiction and documentaries to experimental films, and hybrid forms of “docu-fiction.” The primary goal is to break down stereotypes and defy categorization of the “science film,” and while the Festival showcases films whose chief purpose is to convey scientific information with artistry, it also celebrates abstract works designed to capture the magic and “cool” of science and its practitioners.”
