(All Day)
Solidarity Day (Student Life)
Description: On, Tuesday, Feb. 4, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion is hosting a campus-wide Solidarity Day. We are asking all members of the Wofford College community to wear black as a show of unity and mourning for those who have lost their lives in the pursuit of racial equity and to display support for those who continue to fight against prejudice. Due to the greater significance of this event and the impact that we would like to have on the student body, we hope you will support us in our efforts. Throughout the day, there will be banners prominently displayed on campus depicting different moments and movements in South Carolina history. We encourage you to take photos with or near the banners and share the photos on social media using the hashtag #WoCoSolidarity. At 4:30 p.m., we will be taking a group photo on Old Main steps and encourage you to join us!

Art Exhibit: From Botticelli to Tintoretto, Richardson Family Art Museum (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: From Botticelli to Tintoretto: Italian Renaissance Art from the Tobey and Bob Jones Collection. (Gallery talk by Dr. Nelda Damiano, Georgia Museum of art on March 25 at 7 p.m.)

This exhibition charts the dizzying speed with which Italian Renaissance art developed between the late 15th and late 16th century. Mixtures of Christian subjects and humanist imagery drawn from antiquity are what one would expect from Renaissance art during this era. However, the style shifts rapidly, and artistic daring encouraged by artists, their patrons, and audiences manifest spatial and figural complexities well-represented in these works, as well as varieties in their format and media. 

Thanks to generous loans from David and Julie Tobey in New York and the Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery in Greenville, Art History students in Karen Goodchild’s Renaissance Art class will undertake research on actual Renaissance works, and their semester-long projects will be presented in late April and early May.  

Location: Richardson Family Art Museum

Art Exhibit: Gummy Labyrinth, Richardson Family Art Gallery (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: Exhibit: Gummy Labyrinth by Micah Tiffin. (Artist talk: Feb. 20, 7 p.m.) 

Gummy Labyrinth features works by Micah Tiffin, senior in Studio Art and Humanities and a 2019 Whetsell Memorial Fellowship recipient. 

Artist’s statement: I remember writing the same sentence hundreds of times over and over on paper. Ironically, I don’t remember what the sentence said. It was probably three lines long, about something I did or said that I shouldn’t have said or done. I was implanted on a park bench, facing away from where the others dug holes to China and chased one another up the slide. Luckily, by now I had learned how to escape into my own space. I daydreamed about playing games and my stuffed animal penguins that waited for me at home. I became an artist early, creating spaces that served as distractions. My installation is an ode to this temporary refuge. My paintings and sculptures exemplify the struggle of reentering the “real world.”
