Hub E-vents: May 22 (on May 21)

You want art. You crave art.

#SCartists and arts organizations want to fill that void. They live for that. It’s a calling. Yet in times of social distancing, that’s hard to do. Through the wonders of modern technology, many are trying and succeeding. So while we’re all staying home to protect vulnerable family, friends, and neighbors,  The Hub is stepping up to fill the void between artists and arts lovers. (Learn more about Hub E-vents here.)

Here are some virtual arts events a day early for you planners

We see you. Sometimes we do events on the same day, sometimes we promo upcoming ones. Sometimes we do both. There are no rules in quarantine life! (Help yourself by reading all of them.)

Charleston Rhizome Collective/ConNECKtedTOO | 2 p.m.

How about some fun with the young arts lovers in the family?
Houses? Dolls? Now it's time for Recycle Cars, another family art lesson for children and families Friday, May 22 at 2 PM Eastern. These cars are made from household materials to limit trips to the store and waste! This image lists materials needed, but you can find them at the details link below. Go here for details and to join this event.

The Gibbes Museum of Art: Song and Spoken Word | 7 p.m.

Ann Caldwell performs "EXODUS: Bound for Freedom"
Ann Caldwell is a singer, song writer and story teller. She has the quiet energy of a windmill yet the soulful voice and power of a locomotive. Ann's rich, organic sound wraps around a note, then takes it and the listener to a different space in time. Caldwell brings a unique rhythm to every beat and word. A native of Denmark, S.C., and long-time resident of Charleston, Ann Caldwell brings with her the spirit of her ancestors who used music as a way to commune with each other and God. Originally scheduled to perform a garden concert at the Gibbes on May 6, she has created a new virtual performance entitled EXODUS: Bound for Freedom, and uses objects from the Gibbes collection to illustrate her stories and songs. View it tomorrow, Friday, May 22, at 7 p.m. on the Gibbes Museum's Facebook page (you do not need a Facebook account to watch).
Artist Statement: The dictionary defines Exodus as a mass departure of people [from one place to another], and my performance tells of the early journeys of the African American people. I chose to focus on the initial EXODUS that occurred when over 12.5 million Africans were captured transported to the New World for the purpose of slave labor--a journey called The Middle Passage. The journey from slavery to freedom (the Underground Railroad) was a second EXODUS, when enslaved Africans and African Americans risked life and limb to escape from the life of bondage and hard labor to go to a place where they could be free. These stories and songs illustrate the determination of my ancestors not to live their lives as enslaved people. No matter how difficult or perilous the journey, they would be forever Bound for Freedom.

So this is it for April.

The Hub doesn't know about you, but it felt only about half as long as March's approximately 250 days. Progress! (Right?) Let's dance into a new month, and get closer to returning to the people, places, and things we miss.

Here are some events for today. (Or anytime.)

Here are some events for today. (Or anytime.)

  • This is the juxtaposition of several things artistic, some of which don't get much attention on The Hub. (But The Hub thinks you'll follow along just fine.) This spring, Columbia Museum of Art was gearing up for It's Alive!, a unique printmaking (check) exhibition of horror and sci-fi movie (check) promo posters (another check, honestly) collected by Kirk Hammett, a founding member of the heavy-metal band (big check) Metallica (a long-time Hub favorite). Obviously you can't venture to the CMA for this, but you can get a grand tour by the guitar-shredding collector himself. Rock. On.
  • From museum at home to orchestra at home. Have a sonic experience at home, or even on a socially-distant walk, with the South Carolina Philharmonic. The Midlands' professional orchestra is sharing archival recordings of favorite past performances through the upcoming weeks. Clap between movements! Hum along without getting shushed! Wear pajamas! Heck, we'll say it again: Rock. Rach. On.

ArtFields. Is. All. Online. Here's a word from them:

As you know, the coronavirus has altered our plans for ArtFields 2020. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to elevating and celebrating Southern art and, right now, that starts with you.

On Friday, April 24th, the day we would normally kick off ArtFields with a ribbon-cutting and a welcoming of artists and art lovers to Lake City, we will be releasing this year’s selected artwork to our website. Our 2020 artists are truly phenomenal and we can’t wait for you all to see this wonderful body of work. You'll be able to enjoy artwork from artists across the 12 Southeastern states, plus the accepted work for our South Carolina student artists in ArtFields Jr. 

Here’s how we’d like you to join in on the fun and recognize our 2020 artists on this special day:

    • Once the gallery is launched, take a look and share works that inspire and move you with the hashtag #ArtFieldsAtHome.
    • Past competitors and attendees to our event, we’d love for you to share your favorite ArtFields memories with the hashtag #ArtFieldsAtHome.
    • Get creative and share the ways that you’re kicking off #ArtFieldsAtHome. Are you going to create some art of your own? Explore your own home like a gallery? Whatever it is, we’d love to see it!

Share your posts with the hashtag #ArtFieldsAtHome and be sure to tag us between April 24th - 26th for a chance to win some fun ArtFields goodies!

Have a great weekend!

Introducing Hub E-vents

Finding art while staying home


You, The Hub, and #SCartists walk into a bar are under stay at home/stay at work orders. You and The Hub want art. You crave art. #SCartists and arts organizations want to fill that void. They live for that. It's a calling. Yet in times of social distancing, that's hard to do. Through the wonders of modern technology, many are trying and succeeding. So while we're all staying home to protect vulnerable family, friends, and neighbors,  The Hub is stepping up to fill the void between artists and arts lovers. Today we're introducing a new (temporary) venture we're calling Hub E-vents to help get the wonderful work of #SCartists we serve to you through The Hub at the S.C. Arts Commission Facebook feed.
  • Aren't events supposed to be on Arts Daily? Fact check: TRUE. Our team is working to bring Arts Daily back to full capacity, but the Arts Daily process requires significant advance notice, and many of the "e-vents" we're seeing are coming together, well, quickly. Let that inspiration strike! Let us know. If we see it in time and if we can, we'll help.
  • Those are two big caveats. How do we let you know? First, there was another, initial caveat. This is only a temporary feature. As for the others... as you can imagine, the folks who provide this content can quickly become overwhelmed by volume, which is why there are separate submission processes for The Hub (news) and Arts Daily (events) and each has its own mission. Tag the "@scartscomm" on your Facebook post about your event. We’ll share it to our statewide (and beyond) network. Events with enough advance notice are eligible for Hub E-vents posts which, like our recurring “Tuning Up” feature will be curated and go out as events warrant. If there are sporadic events, we’ll post sporadically. If there are more, we’ll post more. We’ll do our best.
