UC announces Arts in Public Life Initiative and Washington Park Arts Incubator. September 2011. Theaster Gates first director

We are excited to share with you news of the launch of the University of Chicago’s Arts and Public Life Initiative, with Theaster Gates appointed as its inaugural director. A major component of the Initiative will be the creation of the Washington Park Arts Incubator. We invite you to read the official announcement:http://news.uchicago.edu/article/2011/09/29/arts-and-public-life-initiative-deepen-university039s-engagement-local-arts-commu

This initiative is a vital component of our plans to expand the role of the arts on campus by strengthening our relationship with cultural and civic partners in the city and especially on Chicago's south side. We look forward to collaborating with and learning from all of you as we expand our role in the Chicago arts community through this and other initiatives.

The Arts and Public Life Initiative will complement the arts-based community engagement already happening on campus. Existing programs at Court Theatre, the Smart Museum of Art, the Oriental Institute, and Theater and Performance Studies, among others, offer superb models and opportunities for continued partnership in community outreach and arts education. The Arts and Public Life Initiative will also increase interactions between the University of Chicago and artists and organizations across the city.

As Director of Arts and Public Life, Theaster will work to achieve the initiative’s primary goals: advancing artistic ambition through a program of artist residencies, amplifying cultural assets by promoting interactions between artists and cultural institutions on the South Side and the University’s faculty and students, and inspiring creativity in youth through apprenticeship programs August 7-14 2 arts education efforts. The Washington Park Arts Incubator will play a central role in the success of the endeavor.

Theaster, who is also an accomplished practicing artist, brings a wealth of experience and insight to the project. He will work closely with University colleagues, our Aldermen, and other community partners to ensure a high level of artistic, scholarly, and community engagement happens in Washington Park, on campus, and elsewhere in the city. In addition, Theaster will continue as Resident Artist and Lecturer at the University.

Please join us in congratulating Theaster on his new role as the inaugural Director of Arts and Public Life. Expect more exciting news on this front in the coming months.

Finally, we thank all of you for your continued support of the arts at the University of Chicago. We are fortunate to be part of Chicago's rich arts community. This announcement follows the news of the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry and precedes the 2012 opening of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, all initiatives that support the distinctive culture of arts practice and scholarship at the University of Chicago.

New MSI permanent exhibit "Fast Forward-Inventing the Future" features new inventions. Highlighted is the work of a dozen engineers and inventors. From expanding human life span to all-electric cars, they feature works in progress in a display that will rotate.

New MSI permanent exhibit. October 8 2014, Wednesday. Opening at Museum of Science and Industry- new permanent exhibit. Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze. Patterns are everywhere … if you know where to look! From the delicate nested spirals of a sunflower’s seeds, to the ridges of a majestic mountain range, to the layout of the universe, mathematical patterns abound in the natural world. Our newest permanent exhibit, Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze, exposes and explains the patterns that surround us. Highlights include a gallery of interactives and an 1,800-square foot mirror maze—with secrets waiting to be discovered! Numbers in Nature opens October 8. 57th and S. Lake Shore Drive.

New permanent exhibit, YOU! the experience. Celebrate everything that makes you..YOU! More than just as body, you are a complex blend of your choices, your personality, and your environment. Who you are depends on how you care for yourself and enjoy your your life. YOU! brings these elements together into an interactive exhibit examining and celebrating the experience of life itself. Whether testing your basketball moves with a virtual coach or playing Mind Ball, a game of "competitive relaxation" in which players win by controlling their brainwaves, you will see yourself--and your health--in new and fascinating ways: use your heartbeat to make the new giant Heart come alive, diagnose with the Human Patient Simulator, watch your face age based on lifestyle choices and habits, run a hamster wheel with real-time feedback, examine human embryos and other human specimens.

Opened - new permanent exhibit Storm Science. In this exhibit you experience a 40-foot tornado, 20-foot avalanche, high-voltage lightning storms and a live fire exhibit, and how tsunamis, earthquakes, eruptions et al happen. There is also a re-creation of Sir Isaac Newton's prism experiment and a display of a first edition copy of his "Opticks." Video presentations are a big part, focusing on the scientists and on what can't be seen by the naked eye. It's an enormous two-story, 26,000 sq. ft. new installation in the north center of the Museum.

The Chicago Jazz Archive at the University of Chicago Library’s Special Collection Research Center invites all jazz lovers to explore the history of Chicago jazz online and in person this fall:

1. View and hear our new Web exhibit, Sounds from Tomorrow’s World: Sun Ra and the Chicago Years, 1946-1961. While living in Chicago, Herman Poole “Sonny” Blount became Sun Ra—the leader of the Arkestra and a composer and arranger of some of the most avant-garde jazz of the time. He was also the architect of a philosophy that informed his music, his life, and the lives of those around him: a synthesis of Black Nationalism, Egyptology, futurism, occultism and Southern Baptist preaching. This Web exhibit explores Sun Ra’s Chicago years through images and sound recordings of his poetry and music, vinyl records and album artwork, promotional materials and early controversial broadsheets. A media kit is available online.

2. Visit the Special Collections Research Center to consult the original materials shown in the Sun Ra Web exhibit and thousands of other publications, photographs, articles, posters, programs, ticket stubs, and other ephemera of musicians, clubs, record companies, and jazz organizations found in the Chicago Jazz Archive.

3. Visit our updated Chicago Jazz Library Guide for information on researching the history of Chicago jazz at libraries across the city.

4. Stop by the Chicago Jazz Archive table at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival this Saturday, September 25. The Special Collections Research Center is a member of the Hyde Park Alliance for Arts and Culture (HyPa), which co-produces the festival.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of these offerings.

Rock Scene

Hyde Park has a U of C scene, centered performances in Bartlett and Hutchinson and Main Quads, Uncommon Grounds (2nd fl. Reynolds), Hutchinson Commons, or the several coffee shops-- and thought by some to be rather subdued and fusion. It also has a cutting edge underground scene-- literally more often than not in a basement, often in west Hyde Park. For the latter especially, you have to get into the scene or on various email. facebook, twitter, or pass-the-flyer groups to find them.

To start with the South Side rock and cutting edge scene, frequent such spots as Reggies Rock Club, 2109 S. State, South Union Arts, 1352 S. Union, Go0Go Town, 3117 S. Morgan.

May 15, Sunday, 3 pm. 57th St. Books. Melissa Burch. My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahedeen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush.My Journey Through War and Peace examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace.This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of Eat Pray Love, Wild, and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.??My Journey Through War and Peace, the first book of the Pathfinder Trilogy, will be published by Mosaic Press on March 1st, 2016.
