Old Main: A Trip Down Memory Lane, Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery

Old Main: A Trip Down Memory Lane explores the visual history of Wofford College through the Main Building, known affectionately as Old Main.  Referred to as “The College” for many years, Old Main remains one of the nation’s outstanding examples of “Italianate” or “Tuscan Villa” architecture.  The cornerstone of Old Main was laid with imposing Masonic rites on July 4, 1851.  Construction finally began in the summer of 1852 under the supervision of Ephraim Clayton of Asheville, NC. Skilled African American carpenters executed uniquely beautiful woodwork, including a pulpit and pews for the chapel.  The exterior of the building today is true to the original design, but the interior has been modernized and renovated three times — in the early 1900s, in the 1960s, and in 2007.  The selected archival and photographic prints as well as works on paper provide an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane to Wofford’s most famous landmark.

Art Exhibit: Spanish Colonial Art, Richardson Family Art Museum (lower level)
Spanish colonialism in the Americas from the fifteenth through the nineteenth century introduced Spanish beliefs and traditions to the region, shaping new artistic traditions that evolved with the convergence of cultures. Itinerant and indigenous artists created religious paintings, sculptures, and ecclesiastical metal works in large numbers. Selected works for this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Dr. and Mrs. Francis Robicsek of Charlotte, N.C.
