"Dance at the Big Apple" by Tyrone Geter is #19 on Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center's self-guided art tour. What inspired the painting? In the 1930s, Columbia's African-American community started the Big Apple dance at the Big Apple Night Club. The dance became popular outside of South Carolina, even reaching New York City.
