Guest Speaker: Alfred Moses, Former U.S. Ambassador to Romania Harley Room (Academic)
Description: Alfred H. Moses was appointed in 1994 by President Bill Clinton as U.S. ambassador to Romania, where he served for three years. His appointment followed his efforts over two decades to free Jews and others from Communist Romania. In 29002, Moses was awarded Romania's Marc Cruce medal by the president of that country, its highest category awarded; at the time, he was the only American to have received the award. Following his ambassadorial service, Clinton appointed Moses as special presidential envoy for the Cyprus Conflict. Moses previously had served President Jimmy Carter as special adviser and special counsel. Moses has practiced law since 1956 when he joined the Washington, D.C., law firm of Covington & Burling LLP, becoming a partner in 1965; he now is senior counsel to the firm. He is the author of "Bucharest Diary, Romania's Journey from Darkness to Light," published in 2018 by Brookings Institution. Moses was elected four times as national president of the American Jewish Committee, the longest serving president in more than four decades. 

Presented by the Office of the President and the Department of Government and International Affairs.

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.

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.”

"Transatlantic Degas: Cotton, Paper, Textiles, and Art, Between New World and Old": An Art History Lecture Presentation by Professor Michelle Foa (Tulane University), Leonard Auditorium (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: The Wofford College Department of Art and Art History is pleased to welcome Dr. Michelle Foa to campus to deliver the lecture "Transatlantic Degas: Cotton, Paper, Textiles, and Art, Between New World and Old," an examination of Edgar Degas’ works inspired by his travels in the American South. Degas’ four-month stay in New Orleans in 1872-73, which marked his first experience crossing the Atlantic, resulted in two remarkable paintings of a cotton office. Foa’s lecture will analyze the important connections between Southern cotton, the textiles that fill the artist’s pictures of dancers, laundresses, and bathers, and the paper he used for many of his drawings. Degas’s Cotton Office paintings, as well as drawings and letters he produced during his time abroad, reflect his newfound understanding of the ties between the Old and New Worlds and the transport technologies that facilitated the global circulation of people, goods, and information.

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.
