Cultural Events

From a major track in theatre to offerings in instrumental and vocal performance, studio art, and creative writing, Wofford College offers students a variety of ways to express their artistic abilities. Not the artistic type? Wofford also regularly hosts concerts and plays by both on and off campus groups, a film series, and readings and lectures by visiting writers.

Current Exhibitions

In 2007 the Sandor Teszler Library began the acquisition of the diverse personal collection of historical manuscripts and archives, ephemera, books, objects, and textiles accrued by Broadus R. “Dick” Littlejohn, Jr. In 2011 the whole of the collection was generously bequeathed to the Library, so that present and future students of Wofford College would benefit from the study and use of its contents and thus deepen not only their understanding of past events but also the human condition.

The addition of the Littlejohn Collection to the library’s Special Collections adds to the legacy of the Littlejohn family at Wofford: in the early 1970s a room that holds special collections materials was named for Dick’s father, Broadus R. Littlejohn, Sr., a 1917 graduate of Wofford College Fitting School. This exhibit features just a fraction of materials held in Mr. Littlejohn’s wide-ranging collection, including historical objects and facsimiles of precious manuscripts and ephemera.

MIssion Statement

Fine Arts Collection Mission Statement

The College is committed to building an art collection as a resource for our students, faculty, staff, and the Spartanburg Community. We recognize that much of what students learn comes from beyond the classroom through such cultural enrichment, thus we are committed to both regular exhibition of the collections as well as their preservation and restoration as necessary. We are committed to a program of best practices in storage environment, documentation, and presentation. The College will insure the collection as part of its regular insurance guidelines and with regular appropriations made for the maintenance and preservation of the collection. In all choices of collection building and presentation, we are guided by the College’s larger mission as a liberal arts institution whose chief concern is the development of an intellectual, spiritual, and aesthetic atmosphere.
