Old Main: A Trip Down Memory Lane, Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

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.

Exhibit: The South Carolina Coastal Lithograph Project by Jim Creal, Richardson Family Art Museum (upper level) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

The original mission of The South Carolina Coastal Lithograph Project was to create a lasting body of lithographic work devoted to capturing the mood, spirit and rich diversity of South Carolina's coastal habitats and some of their extraordinary indigenous creatures. In this exhibit, Jim Creal augments the original project to include not only the hand produced original lithographs as originally envisioned but also adds his documentary site/habitat photographs to flush out telling the visual story of our coast’s magnificent and increasingly endangered ecosystem.  This project is his way of sharing with audiences the visual story and magnificent beauty of South Carolina’s coastal habitats, their combined significance as a vital ecosystem under stress and their value as a national treasure that needs to be preserved for future generations.
