THIRD ANNUAL “OPERATION SPREAD THE JOY” IN FULL SWING

The third annual “Operation Spread the Joy” project is once again collecting items and monetary donations from now until Sunday, December 13 to distribute Christmas Eve morning to downtown Columbia’s homeless. Started five years ago by two Irmo women who felt an overwhelming desire to share the Christmas spirit with Columbia’s neediest individuals, the project has now taken on a life of its own. According to co-founder Heather Malovic, she and friend Maeghan Edge first began gathering necessities such as blankets, ponchos and toothpaste to pass out as Christmas gifts to the homeless on their own. But as word of the friends’ efforts spread, so did the public’s interest. Three years ago, the project became so popular that it was officially dubbed “Operation Spread the Joy”, and a Christmas mission was born. Heather said the outpouring of love and donations has been incredible. “Every year more and more people are blessed because of the generous gifts people donate to ‘Operation Spread the Joy,’” she said. “Not only the homeless, but those who package and hand out the gifts too. We all come away learning and feeling so much!” Heather and Maeghan will distribute the gifts in front of both Hope Plaza and the Christ Central Ministries building on Main Street December 24. Their goal is to collect enough items to fill 150 reusable grocery-sized bags. They are in need of: Fleece blankets Gloves Chapstick Razors Combs Socks Ponchos Bars of Soap Hand sanitizer Toothbrushes Knit hats Deodorant Scarves Wipes Toothpaste For more information on where to drop off items, contact Heather Malovic at 803-414-2115 or Shears74@yahoo.com, Maeghan Edge at maeghan.edge@gmail.com, or visit the “Operation Spread the Joy” Facebook event website: https://www.facebook.com/events/997072710319704/?ref=3&ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

P.O.V. Film Series Screens "Grey Gardens" at Tapp's Nov. 22, 2014

Tapp's Arts Center 1644 Main St. 29201

The Point of View Film Series proudly presents the groundbreaking cinema verite' documentary, 'Grey Gardens' (1975) this Saturday, Nov. 22 at 7 PM. Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1975 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, co-directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. -- Criterion.com This film screening is part of a continuing series between Point of View and Tapp’s Arts Center. P.O.V. meets monthly in the Skyline Room of Tapp’s Arts Center to view and discuss films of varying styles and genres from around the world. Couch seating is limited so chairs, pillows and cushions are welcome.

Started five years ago by two Irmo women who felt an overwhelming desire to share the Christmas spirit with Columbia’s neediest individuals, the project has now taken on a life of its own. According to co-founder Heather Malovic, she and friend Maeghan Edge first began gathering necessities such as blankets, ponchos and toothpaste to pass out as Christmas gifts to the homeless on their own. But as word of the friends’ efforts spread, so did the public’s interest. Three years ago, the project became so popular that it was officially dubbed “Operation Spread the Joy”, and a Christmas mission was born. Heather said the outpouring of love and donations has been incredible. “Every year more and more people are blessed because of the generous gifts people donate to ‘Operation Spread the Joy,’” she said. “Not only the homeless, but those who package and hand out the gifts too. We all come away learning and feeling so much!” Heather and Maeghan will distribute the gifts in front of both Hope Plaza and the Christ Central Ministries building on Main Street December 24. Their goal is to collect enough items to fill 150 reusable grocery-sized bags. They are in need of: Fleece blankets Gloves Chapstick Razors Combs Socks Ponchos Bars of Soap Hand sanitizer Toothbrushes Knit hats Deodorant Scarves Wipes Toothpaste For more information on where to drop off items, contact Heather Malovic at 803-414-2115 or Shears74@yahoo.com, Maeghan Edge at maeghan.edge@gmail.com, or visit the “Operation Spread the Joy” Facebook event website: https://www.facebook.com/events/997072710319704/?ref=3&ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

The 701 CCA Prize Celebration and Winner Announcement

701 Whaley Street, 2nd Floor, Columbia, SC 29201

The 701 CCA Prize Celebration and Winner Announcement When: Wednesday, December 3, 7:00-10:00 p.m. Where: 701 CCA, 701 Whaley St, 2nd Floor, Columbia, SC 29201 Celebration Admission: members, $20; non-members, $25 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, S.C., presents the 701 CCA Prize Celebration and Winner Announcement Wednesday, December 3, 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. The finalists for the 701 CCA Prize 2014 are Andrew Blanchard of Spartanburg, Shannon Rae Lindsey of Columbia and Karen Ann Myers of Charleston. The finalists will be in attendance and the winner of the 701 CCA Prize 2014 will be announced. The event will feature music by The Reggie Sullivan Band and the exhibition catalogue will be presented. Admission for the celebration catered by Linda Phillips and bar service by Liquid Assets is $20 for members and a $25 for non-members. This year’s Prize is the second installment of the biennial event and runs through December 21. The 701 CCA Prize 2014 is a competition and exhibition for South Carolina artists 40 years and younger. “The jury panel selected three outstanding artists,” 701 CCA board chair Wim Roefs said. “They had to choose from a strong field. While we had hoped for more than the 15 applications we received for the contest, the high percentage of really excellent artists who submitted made the process extraordinarily competitive. With Blanchard and Myers, we have two artists who already have made considerable waves in South Carolina and beyond. Lindsey is a relatively new but exciting arrival on the state’s art scene. And it’s a nice coincidence that we have one artist from the Upstate, one from the Midlands and one from the Lowcountry.” The three finalists were selected by an independent jury consisting of Barry Gaither, director and curator of the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists in Boston, Mass.; Brad Thomas, director of residencies and exhibitions at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, N.C.; and Hannah Davis, gallery and exhibitions manager at Jones-Carter Gallery in Lake City, S.C. The Prize’s purpose is to identify and recognize young South Carolina artists whose work is exemplary in its originality, shows awareness of artistic developments and is of high artistic merit. “With the 701 CCA Prize, 701 Center for Contemporary Art has added a crucial component to the eco-system for artists and the visual arts in South Carolina,” Roefs said. “Prior to this 701 CCA initiative, the state did not have a prominent event to highlight the best young talent in South Carolina.” The 701 CCA Prize winner will receive a six-week, paid residency at 701 CCA; consultation services from a professional advertising and marketing firm; a solo exhibition at 701 CCA; and an ad in a national publication. Blanchard (b. 1977) is a Louisiana native raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He is the director of studio art and an associate professor of printmaking and photography at Converse College in Spartanburg. Blanchard holds a BA from the University of Southern Mississippi and an MFA from the University of Mississippi. His mixed-process prints on wood and paper have been included in more than hundred national and international juried print exhibitions. Blanchard’s work was included recently in New American Paintings and the Oxford American magazine, which named him among the New Superstars of Southern Art. Lindsey (b. 1985) earlier this year received her MFA from the University of South Carolina in Columbia and in 2008 earned a BFA from the University of South Florida. She teaches art as an adjunct professor at the University of South Carolina. Her work has been included in some 20 exhibitions in Florida and South Carolina. Lindsey is an interdisciplinary artist who explores drawing, painting, sculpture and installation with unconventional materials and processes. Myers (b. 1984) earlier this year had a solo exhibition at the Greenville County (S.C.) Museum Art. Her work has been in 17 solo exhibitions and dozens of group shows in eight states and Greece. She was included in the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2011. Myers earned an MFA from Boston University and a BFA from Michigan State University. She is the associate director at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston and an adjunct professor at the College of Charleston. Myers’ work appeared in New American Paintings and, like Blanchard, the Oxford American magazine in 2012 listed her among the New Superstars of Southern Art. For further inquiries, contact info@701cca.org or call Sheldon Paschal (803) 319-9949. 701 CCA is a non-profit visual arts center that promotes understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of contemporary art, the creative process and the role of art and artists in the community. The center also encourages interaction between visual and other art forms.

Holiday Taste & Tour ~ Lower Richland Heritage Corridor - 8th Annual

Historic Village of Hopkins, 214 Hopkins Road, Hopkins, SC 29061

There is something magical during Taste & Tour time! The Village of Hopkins comes alive. SERCO’s 8th Annual Holiday Taste & Tour promises to bring a memorable “Old Fashioned Christmas” to the historic Village of Hopkins on Saturday, December 6, 2014, from 12:00 Noon until 4:00 p.m. The Village is located just 11 miles from Columbia at 214 Hopkins Road, and intersecting Lower Richland Boulevard. History tells us that this was once a bustling location, originally named “Hopkins Turnout” between 1836 and 1842, when the South Carolina Railroad from Charleston completed a turntable there. Through the 1920’s, the Village of Hopkins was thriving with general stores, gin mills, industries, residences and a Town Hall. SERCO has taken on a labor of love to recreate a similar atmosphere. This year, we have an Honorary Santa! Richland County Councilmember Kelvin Washington, District 10, will lead SERCO’s “Stuff a Wagon” drive to collect and fill 200 Christmas Stockings on behalf of the Salvation Army. Donors may drive-thru and drop off gifts. Youth and other volunteers from Lower Richland High School & JROTC, Eastover’s Elevations Youth Group and other local youth will be stationed to accept items. But, we expect you’ll want to park and join us for a day of fun … There is a full schedule of FREE activities for guests, including delicious FREE Food Samplings: BBQ Cook Off, Adluh Flour Pound Cake Bake-Off, Cooking Demonstration by SC Ambassador Chef Brandon Velie, Carriage-Carnival & Trackless Train Rides, Stage Entertainment, Local History Museum, Vendors for gifts, crafts, flea/farmers markets, and Oyster Roast.

THIRD ANNUAL “OPERATION SPREAD THE JOY” IN FULL SWING

The third annual “Operation Spread the Joy” project is once again collecting items and monetary donations from now until Sunday, December 13 to distribute Christmas Eve morning to downtown Columbia’s homeless. Started five years ago by two Irmo women who felt an overwhelming desire to share the Christmas spirit with Columbia’s neediest individuals, the project has now taken on a life of its own. According to co-founder Heather Malovic, she and friend Maeghan Edge first began gathering necessities such as blankets, ponchos and toothpaste to pass out as Christmas gifts to the homeless on their own. But as word of the friends’ efforts spread, so did the public’s interest. Three years ago, the project became so popular that it was officially dubbed “Operation Spread the Joy”, and a Christmas mission was born. Heather said the outpouring of love and donations has been incredible. “Every year more and more people are blessed because of the generous gifts people donate to ‘Operation Spread the Joy,’” she said. “Not only the homeless, but those who package and hand out the gifts too. We all come away learning and feeling so much!” Heather and Maeghan will distribute the gifts in front of both Hope Plaza and the Christ Central Ministries building on Main Street December 24. Their goal is to collect enough items to fill 150 reusable grocery-sized bags. They are in need of: Fleece blankets Gloves Chapstick Razors Combs Socks Ponchos Bars of Soap Hand sanitizer Toothbrushes Knit hats Deodorant Scarves Wipes Toothpaste For more information on where to drop off items, contact Heather Malovic at 803-414-2115 or Shears74@yahoo.com, Maeghan Edge at maeghan.edge@gmail.com, or visit the “Operation Spread the Joy” Facebook event website: https://www.facebook.com/events/997072710319704/?ref=3&ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

Famously Hot New Year 2015

Main Street Columbia SC

Famously Hot New Year, South Carolina’s largest free New Year’s Eve celebration, announces plans for the street party of the year in downtown Columbia and the Midlands of South Carolina on Dec. 31, 2014. In its fourth year, as always, Famously Hot New Year 2015’s free street party will feature live music on stage by major national acts, framed by the South Carolina State House. This year, the #FHNY celebration will be headlined by American treasures The O’Jays. With 24 top-10 hits spanning their 50-year career, including the popular, danceable “Love Train,” the O’Jays will keep the crowd moving until midnight. This year’s opening act includes the upbeat, indie-pop band MisterWives, who recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform their hit single, “Reflections.” Local reggae/rock favorites Lefty at the Washout will kick off the concert at 7:30 p.m. After the crowd of tens of thousands counts down to 2015 at midnight, Famously Hot New Year will again feature the most colossal New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the two Carolinas, which will light up the night with the picturesque South Carolina State Capitol in the backdrop. “Famously Hot New Year attracted 26,000 people last year,” said Mayor of Columbia Steve Benjamin. “A third of our guests were from outside of Richland County and 10 percent of our attendees were from outside of South Carolina. They’re joining us in the capital city because the event is free, safe and really fun way to party into the New Year. We know that we have an unequaled quality of life here in the Midlands of South Carolina, and we’ve put together a lineup of entertainment and events for Famously Hot New Year 2015 that will offer locals and tourists plenty of exciting options for ringing in the New Year.” In its fourth year, Famously Hot New Year has expanded event happenings and details that will make the celebration an unforgettable experience in the days surrounding the New Year, including: - The Famously Hot Main Street Crit: This successful race is teaming up with FHNY 2015 on Dec. 31, 2014 with a Kids Fun Run at 3 p.m., a 5K at 3:30 p.m. and an Elite 8K with professional runners at 4:45 p.m. - City of Columbia Parks & Recreation’s WOW New Year’s Eve Carnival: Free admission to games and rides for kids of all ages from 5 – 11 p.m. on Dec. 31. - Comfort Zone: Take a break from dancing in the streets with regional food and drink vendors and plenty of seating at Lady and Main Streets, as well as easy access to Budweiser’s Alert Cab service. - VIP Crescent Lounge: Guests may opt to purchase tickets to the VIP Crescent Lounge for open bar, catering, indoor amenities and exclusive parking. - Famously Hot New Year and The COMET: FHNY is working with The COMET with the goal of extending their holiday schedule to offer New Year’s Eve transportation services to cover the travel needs before and after Famously Hot New Year. - More ways to enjoy Columbia and the Midlands: City of Columbia’s hospitality districts and their members and businesses will create special menus and offers in the days surrounding Dec. 31.
