TheRipple Effect: How Saving a River Revitalized a Community tells the story of the Reedy River and Lake Conestee, Greenville’s own environmental crisis and the community’s response to it. Decades of industrial waste polluted the Reedy’s water and created hazardous conditions in Lake Conestee.

The Children’s Museum of the Upstate Presents:

Come discover U.S. geography, history and culture in our amazing new educational traveling exhibit! Children and families can take a pretend trip across each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to explore America amid beautiful murals of U.S. landscapes. In each stop, kids will get the chance to see some of America’s most spectacular places, including historic sites, tourist destinations, arts, sports venues and other favorite family attractions. Guests can ride a mule into the Grand Canyon, hit a home run in Fenway Park or build the St. Louis Gateway Arch!

Modeled after the popular TRIVIAL PURSUIT® board game, this engaging, hands-on exhibit also offers touch-screen kiosks with interesting facts and questions about U.S. geography, history, arts, literature, science, nature, sports, and entertainment. Various learning opportunities will be available to families and schools for the duration of the exhibit with public programs, stories, arts and crafts centered around U.S. geography, history and culture. We hope you’ll create some memorable stops at the exhibit’s seaside, mountains, forest and desert, discovering something new about the U.S. along the way!

TRIVIAL PURSUIT:® A 50-State Adventure is the third exhibit produced by the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc. It has begun a five-year national tour to peer museums and science centers following its debut in Milwaukee in 2015.

Sundays Unplugged at The Chapman Cultural Center @ The Chapman cultural Center
Feb 14 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sundays Unplugged

All of the museums are open, live music and artists on the plaza… Stop by!

At the beginning of the year, Chapman extended its hours to include Sundays 1-5 p.m. to better accommodate patrons’ schedules. Within a few weeks, all museums and galleries were open on Sundays. To add value to the experience, local musicians were brought in to perform free mini-concerts 2-4 p.m. This Sunday, Brandon Skipper will entertain with his adult alternative stylings from 2-4 p.m.

In addition to free music, patrons can enjoy Sunday Art Market, a bazaar of locally handmade artwork. As always, Artists’ Guild Gallery, Spartanburg Art Museum, and Spartanburg Regional History Museum are free, and Spartanburg Science Center is open for a small fee. There are affordable cultural activities and entertainment available for all ages and tastes.

The latest addition to Sundays Unplugged–Sunday Art Market–provides vending opportunities to local artists in order to “encourage a culturally vibrant community.” The market will be open on Sundays year-round. All items for purchase are handmade and come from a wide array of mediums. All sales are received wholly by the artists.

Any local artist interested in participating must pay $10 per twelve-month period and complete the application. Find the form online or ask for one upon arrival. Only individuals or non-profit artist groups are eligible. Ten-foot by 10-foot spaces are allotted on a first-come-first-serve basis, but artists must provide their own tables, chairs, tents, etc. and be able to set up without staff assistance. Items for sale have to be local and original.

Find out more about Sundays Unplugged at Chapman Cultural Center by calling (864) 542-ARTS or visiting ChapmanCulturalCenter.org.
