Friday February 25, 2011 - May 22, 2011

The exhibition includes 175 works by more than 100 photographers, and covers the rock and roll era from the 1950s to the present, including some of the world’s most iconic images. It was organized by the prestigious Brooklyn Museum of Art and opened there to rave reviews and record-breaking attendance. The Columbia Museum of Art is the last stop on the nation-wide traveling tour. Admission is free on opening day, Friday, February 25, courtesy of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.

Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds: The Koger Center

Friday February 25, 2011
If you were to closely examine the annals of modern pop music history, few creative forces have been more seminal or impacted the contemporary pop/urban genres as much as Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. In a relatively short time, he has reached icon status as a poignant tunesmith, prolific hit maker/producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner. He is a statistical juggernaut, who keeps adding milestone after milestone to a legacy that seems to have no threshold or peak in sight. A 10-time Grammy winner with 11 solo albums of his own, Edmonds’ impeccably crafted explorations of love, romance and relationships have made an indelible imprint on the evolution of contemporary pop music throughout the world: over 125 Top-10 R&B and Pop hits, 42 #1’s R&B hits, and 51 Top-10 Pop hits (including 16 #1’s), which have produced single and album sales in excess of over 500 million units worldwide.

John Mellencamp will hit Columbia and The Township Auditorium on February 26, 2011 on the first leg of his "No Better Than This" Tour. The multi-city tour, designed as a uniquely formatted "evening with," brings Mellencamp's music to theatre-sized venues, a rare opportunity to experience one of America's most iconic songwriters and performers in an intimate setting, highlighting all phases of his artistry. The tour will feature classic Mellencamp material associated with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee over the course of his 35 year long career as well as the new music from NO BETTER THAN THIS. The album, released by Rounder Records, held the top spot on the American Music Chart for five straight weeks and was produced by T Bone Burnett. Rolling Stone's review of the album noted, " Mellencamp has never sounded looser or easier on a record," suggesting the artist was "challenging spirits and stepping into preiods of styles. They fit him perfectly." The Americana Music Association honored Mellencamp last month with its Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, presented by Rosanne Cash.
