Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: Town Theatre

Thursday July 8, 2011 – July 23, 2011

Take an incredible ride with one of the most wonderful families of all time! A widowed, absent-minded, unsuccessful inventor saves a “has been” racing car from the scrap heap at the request of his darling children. He fixes the car up – and boy does he ever – as not only does it run again, it floats and flies! It certainly impresses a beautiful lady who becomes smitten with the entire Potts family. Who would not want such a fantastic car? The Baron and Baroness of Vulgaria certainly do! The royals hire two bumbling spies to kidnap the inventor, but instead they grab Grandpa Potts. The mission becomes to save Grandpa, but in doing so, they must avoid being taken by the Childcatcher whose job is to “make Vulgaria a more beautiful place to live” by making sure no children roam the streets freely! The whole family will love this fantasmagorical Broadway musical! Visit the Town Theatre website for more information!


The Spirit of Lake Murray

Purple Martin Sunset Dinner Cruises: Spirit of Lake Murray

Thursday July 7, 2011, Tuesday July 12, 2011, Thursday July 14, 2011

When the purple martins arrive at Bomb Island each evening at dusk, swirls of thousands of birds fill the sky before they settle into the trees to roost. It’s an amazing sight, and one that attracts birders from around the country to see. A spectacle of nature right here in our own backyard. Treat yourself and your family to one of the Spirit of Lake Murray’s “Purple Martin Sunset Dinner Cruises” this summer, and enjoy a 2 1/2 hour boat ride, a delicious meal and create a special memory! For information, visit the Spirit of Lake Murray website.

Rembrandt van Rijn

Rembrandt: From Sacred to Profane: Columbia Museum of Art

Now through August 21, 2011

Rembrandt van Rijn is one of the most celebrated artists in history. Born in Leiden in 1606, Rembrandt rose to stardom in Amsterdam as a painter of portraits and historical narratives—particularly religious scenes. A master printmaker as well as a painter, Rembrandt exploited the etching medium to its fullest. Although he also worked in engraving and drypoint, it was the freedom of etching that allowed him the full expression of his creative ideas. The etchings in this exhibition, from the collection of Wynetka Ann King Reynolds and Thomas H. Kirschbaum, MD, demonstrate Rembrandt’s inexhaustible curiosity in humanity and its potential as subject matter. Columbia Museum of Art website.
