Nature’s Blueprints: Biomimicry in Art and Design
Apr 16 @ 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
NC Arboretum

Baker Exhibit Center

In an age of complex environmental challenges, why not look to the ingenuity of nature for solutions? The forms, patterns, and processes found in the natural world—refined by 3.8 billion years of evolution—can inspire our design of everything from clothing to skyscrapers. This approach to innovation, called biomimicry, is becoming increasingly popular.

Nature’s Blueprints is supported in part by The North Carolina Arboretum Society, The Laurel of Asheville, RomanticAsheville.com Travel Guide, and Smoky Mountain Living Magazine.

The Work of Remembering
Apr 16 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The Montgomery Building

Join the Southern Studies Fellows, John W. Bateman and Mo Kessler, for a showcase of their mixed media art project examining Southern narratives built from selective history rejecting humanity in service to the status quo, as well as how power and control is perpetuated when those false narratives remain unchallenged. The cumulative event of their fellowship in Spartanburg will feature an art exhibit, mini-documentary screening, live readings, and an artist talkback.

Mo Kessler is an installation and conceptual artist. Utilizing the shadow of 1934, Kessler memorializes mill sites throughout Spartanburg County as hallowed battlegrounds for dignity and self determination.

John W. Bateman, a writer and visual artist and descendant of one of the earliest colonizers in Spartanburg County, explores narratives embedded within family memories. What control did those narratives have over individual identity and self-awareness? What lies do we tell ourselves? How do we know before we know?

These works of remembering are acts of unraveling.

First one hundred attendees will receive John’s chapbook.

The Southern Studies Fellowship in Arts and Letters is hosted by the Chapman Cultural Center and Hub City Writers Project, and made possible by the Watson Brown Foundation.

Clue
Apr 16 @ 7:30 pm

Murder and blackmail are on the menu when six mysterious guests assemble at Boddy Manor for a night they’ll never forget! Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with the knife? Or was it Colonel Mustard in the library with the wrench? Based on the cult 1985 Paramount movie and inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, CLUE is the ultimate whodunit that will leave you dying of laughter and keep you guessing until the final twist.

“A very fun whodunit that strikes contemporary parallels on the way to its grand reveal.”
– The New York Times

“Reminds you what a breezy night of pure entertainment feels like.”
-TheatreMania

“An intriguing must-see production”
– Broadway World

Artisphere x GCCA- Call for Volunteers
Apr 17 @ 7:00 am
Greenville Center for Creative Arts

Artisphere has approached us to participate in their Arts Partner Program, offering a chance to secure funding for GCCA through volunteer efforts. By collectively completing 250 volunteer hours, we can unlock vital resources that will be reinvested back into our community in various meaningful ways.
While our dedicated staff is committed to contributing their time, we recognize that our team alone will not reach the goal. That’s why we’re calling on our wonderful community to join us in this endeavor. With your help, we can achieve our target of 250 volunteer hours.
We’re asking for volunteers to sign up for 2 to 4 shifts each, with most shifts spanning 3 to 4 hours (some may be slightly longer). Your participation will not only support GCCA but also contribute to the vibrant cultural landscape of our city.
To sign up for shifts, please follow the instructions provided in the link below. When registering, be sure to indicate that you’re volunteering on behalf of GCCA to ensure your hours count towards our total. After signing up, we ask that you kindly inform our Operations Manager, Alicia Mizuno, of the number of shifts and total hours you’ve committed to. This will help us keep track of our progress towards our goal.
