    Sundays Unplugged at The Chapman Cultural Center @ The Chapman cultural Center
    May 24 @ 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.

    • May 25 , 2015

    Nine-time Grammy® Award-winning musician Sheryl Crow comes to the Peace Center for one night only!

    Crow has sold more than 35 million albums around the world and has performed duets with musical luminaries such as Sting and Mick Jagger. In addition to her nine Grammy wins, she has been nominated for an additional 27 Grammys and has released eight studio albums (seven charting Top 10, four of them platinum-plus), a quadruple-platinum greatest hits collection and a Christmas album.

    Crow’s most recent album, Feels Like Home, captures the sound of a great and established artist enjoying a kind of fresh start. It features songs on which she collaborated with her long-time guitar player and frequent co-writer Jeff Trott (with whom she co-wrote such past Crow classics as “If It Makes You Happy,” “My Favorite Mistake” and “Every Day Is A Winding Road”), as well as such Nashville songwriters as Chris DuBois, Luke Laird, Natalie Hamby and Chris Stapleton, among others.

    Crow has a combined 40 Top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Top 40, Adult Contemporary, Mainstream Top 40, Triple A (with the most No. 1 singles among women in the chart’s 17-year history) and Hot Country Songs charts. Crow can also count a Top 20 solo country single to her long list of accolades. Her current single, “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely,” is Top 40 and climbing.
