Taylor Made: The Art of Anna Heyward Taylor

Now through January 2, 2011.
Born in Columbia, South Carolina, Anna Heyward Taylor (1879-1956) was instrumental in the Charleston Renaissance and remains one of the most important 20th century artists in the state. Principally drawn from the permanent collection of the
Columbia Museum of Art, Taylor Made explores the process by which Anna Heyward Taylor designed and executed her prints. The exhibition includes watercolors, preliminary sketches and drawings, and numerous final prints and the actual blocks used in their creation. The exhibition was organized by the Columbia Museum of Art in conjunction with the forthcoming publication of the book, The Selected Letters of Anna Heyward Taylor: South Carolina Artist and World Traveler, by the University of South Carolina Press, and commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of Taylor’s retrospective exhibition at the Museum in 1950.

From Here to Timbuktu

Now Through January 2, 2011
Journey Through West Africa!
From Here to Timbuktu takes visitors on a journey through West Africa’s spectacular and diverse geographic regions. Along the way children and adults alike are immersed in an adventure of discovery as they learn about the rhythm of West African life. In each geographic region children are introduced to the foodways, customs and culture of the people who call that region home. Travel from the coastal cities, through the treetops of mountain rainforests and make your way to the open-air family compound on the savannah. Finally, trek the last leg of the journey to find Timbuktu, an ancient center of learning.
