“McCallum & Halsey: At Home and Abroad”
Richardson Family Art Museum, upper level, Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts
The artists Corrie McCallum (1914–2009) and William Halsey (1915–1999) were married for 60 years. They forged artistic paths both individually, and at times undeniably parallel. “At Home and Abroad” invites viewers to experience the familiar imagery of the Carolina Lowcountry and, as noted in the pair’s 1971 book, “A Travel Sketchbook,” the “people and places around the world” that influenced their groundbreaking careers.
Through Oct. 8
“The Shape I'm In: Tri State Sculptors Member Exhibition”
Richardson Family Art Gallery, courtyard and café space
Wofford College will host the 44th Annual Tri State Sculptors Conference in October. This year’s theme, “The Shape I’m In,” was inspired by a stray lyric from a country-folk song. It has many interpretations, from the fleshy forms we inhabit to our present mental and emotional states, from the architecture that surrounds us to our resistance to creative fatigue. The public is invited to view an exhibit with the work of Tri State sculptors.
“Anne Frank: A History for Today”
Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery, Sandor Teszler Library
“Anne Frank: A History for Today” brings to life the story of the young Jewish girl who – in the pages of her world-renowned diary – documented two years of hiding in German-occupied Amsterdam during World War II. By sharing Anne’s legacy with visitors, students and teachers, this traveling exhibit seeks to inspire our commitment to never be bystanders but instead to stand up together against antisemitism, bigotry and inequality.
Public Talk: Anne Frank and the Struggle for “Never Again”
5:30 p.m., Leonard Auditorium
Dr. Doyle Stevick’s encounters with violent extremism at the turn of the century demonstrated that the hateful racism and antisemitism that inspired the Holocaust persist; from that time forward, he dedicated his career to understanding, combatting—and particularly, preventing—the kinds of ideologies that divide and threaten us.
Through Dec. 15
“Michaela Pilar Brown | CONTERMINOUS Elegies”
Richardson Family Art Museum, lower level
“Conterminous Elegies” investigates the process of grieving as a space, not solely for consideration of loss and mourning but an equal opportunity for the exploration of playfulness and joy. The experience of transitions within the course of any human life implies the sharing of and the shifting of boundaries; borders between the materially present and what is remembered; between imagination and the corporeal; between things and ideas.
