Spartanburg’s Chapman Cultural Center to celebrate 5 years
Posted 10/25/2012 5:34:00 AM
The Chapman Cultural Center
is the city’s center for anything arts or science related. Five years ago the 86,000-square foot, three-building facility opened on East Saint John Street and since then more than 200,000 people have visited every year.
To celebrate five years of success, the upstate
center is hosting an all-day festival Oct. 27 with programs in music, dance, science, history and art. The day will be filled with unique and fun events such as a flash mob led by the teachers of Ballet Spartanburg, face painting, ghost stories, and all kinds of hands-on demonstrations for the public to experience.
One of the highlights of the day will be hands-on art project called “Wow!,” where participants bring donated canned goods to add to a community-created work of art. When the festival is over the goods will be donated to local food pantries. Theater-lovers who like to see what goes on behind the scenes will have the chance to see how a stage set is built.
Throughout the day the center will be open to the public free of charge. This includes access to the Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg Regional History Museum, and Spartanburg Science Center.
