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.”

Pulp Theatre Presents "Seminar", Sallenger Sisters Black Box Theatre (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Wofford Theatre's 2020 Pulp Theatre production, “Seminar,” runs from January 23-25, at 8 p.m. in the Sallenger Sisters Black Box Theatre. Written by Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, “Seminar” will be co-directed by Wofford juniors Kelly Kennedy and Savannah Talledo. Set in modern-day New York City, this Broadway comedy centers on four aspiring novelists and their professor, an internationally acclaimed writer whose methods are far from orthodox. Over the course of a ten-week writing seminar, desires and tensions flare as allegiances are sacrificed on the altar of ambition. 

Pulp Theatre productions at Wofford are the culmination of intensive projects that take place over the course of the January Interim term, allowing students to take the lead in every aspect of theatrical production, from directing and performance to design and tech. 

Seating for this show will be limited, and discounted tickets may be purchased in advance at www.wofford.edu/boxoffice. Same-day online ticket sales close at 6 p.m., and the box office opens at 7 p.m. in the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts.
