Chicago Cultural Plan 2012 - Join the Conversation. Plan released in fall 2012.
And the Museum Campus South (announced July 2014): DuSable Museum of African American History, Reva and David
Museum of Science and Industry, Oriental Institute Museum, Logan Center for the Arts, the Renaissance Society, Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, and the Smart Museum of Art.

In July 2014 Ingenuity, the CPS partner in developing CPS's 2012 Cultural Plan, released a "State of the Arts" (in CPS schools) report. Conditions described mainly were before or as the CPS Cultural Plan were being ramped up, but, Ingenuity said, showed how much far below standard things are. Especially disturbing to many are that funds for new art teachers etc. to schools are only temporary and rapidly go down the next two years and that this infusion is not likely to completely close the gap, especially in arts-in-schools deserts (and poor program, lack of resources and arts partners and in reaching 120 arts minutes and time-equivalent teachers in schools) in south and west side schools. This fits in with the US Department of Education findings that schools of poor and minority students are likely to have 1st year and inadequate teachers. Findings of Ingenuity: only 56% of schools met the 1:350 art teacher per student ratio. To get the report visit ingenuity-inc.org.

In 2012 the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) released the Chicago Cultural Plan 2012 plan. www.chicagoculturalplan2012.com or www.cityofchicago.org/dcase.

Hyde Park Jazz Society returned to Room 43. "We are so grateful to you for being a friend and supporter of jazz on the South Side of Chicago. As the HPJS is halfway into our 6th year of producing jazz, we want to give a special thanks to those of you who have been with us from our modest beginnings in 2006 to the great successes that followed. And we send out a BIG thanks to all of you, recent and long-time audience members, who have followed us during our many moves. It has often been challenging and always an adventure!
"And now we have exciting news to share with you. In the new year, we return home to ROOM 43--on JANUARY 8th. The City licenses are in place, and our plans are made. Room 43 is now secure for us.
For our kick-off event, we will present the John Burnett Orchestra, featuring vocalist Frieda Lee. Additionally, the Hyde Park Jazz Society and John Wright Music will honor Frieda for her contributions to jazz in Chicago. That night will also be our annual Black & White evening where we ask our patrons to dress in black, white, or black and white. To celebrate our homecoming, many of our patrons will be wearing evening attire. But the door charge remains a modest $10. And whatever your clothes, black jeans or black tie, we want you to celebrate our "opening night" with us."

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 and enhanced K-12 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.

Sincerely,

Larry Norman

The Chicago Effect.... is an exhibition and public program that engages artists and practitioners in considering conditions of the middle- both conceptual and concrete. Artwork on vie explores permeable boundaries, liminal spaces, and in-betweens, identifying and asserting the necessity of the middle as a fertile improvisational space that becomes a creative engine, and raising questions about the value of a middle-man, a middle class, a moderated political position, and even the middle ground between formal and material states. Using the Art Center as a model for how an arts institution can occupy the m idle to foster intercommunity connectivity and spur creative production, public programming and a printed catalogue will accompany the exhibition to offer analysis of how mid-sized organizations can serve adn engage audiences.
Includes actual research and experiments with several outside persons and organizations on how the Center might adapt its administration, architecture, design, and programming to serve the future, including the "middle" of practice, organization, and society as well as the "outliers".

Artists: Marissa Lee Benedict, Robert Burnier, Devon Dikeou, Essex/Olivares, Assaf Evron, Jamie Hayes, Patrick Meagher, Michael Smith, Jan Tichy, and Lan Tauzon. C0-curators allison Peters Quinn, Christopher K. Ho, Megha Ralapati.

CAC's members have exhibited at dozens of venues, including Art Loop open, which awarded over $65,000 in prizes and expanded their skills through the A.B.C. series of professional development workshops designed to educate artists on the business of art, covering such vital topics as legal rights and protections, proposal writing, fiscal sponsorship, tax and record keeping, budget building, portfolio reviews, pricing work and more.

Be among the first to learn about our upcoming move to the vibrant, art-centric west loop and the launch of Bolt Residency, a one-year artist residency program consisting of nine studios and exhibition space with ongoing professional development programming. This dynamic program will be juried by the Art Center's very own Director of Exhibitions Allison Peters Quinn.

This Labor Day weekend marks the 25th anniversary of the African Festival of the Arts, an annual event that celebrates the dynamic and diverse arts of Africa and the African diaspora in the City of Chicago. The Logan Center, in conjunction with the Africa International House, the festival’s organizers, takes a look back at the artworks that have served as the image of the festival. Featuring posters and a selection of the original artworks that inspired them, you’ll see the work of artists including Dayo Laoye, Melvin King, Najjar, and Woodrow Nash. Examining the ways in which art serves as an expression of black culture, the Chicago-based Ghanaian-born artist Samuel Akainyah declared, “The pulse of Africa still beats in spite of its dispersion.” The pulse that Akainyah identifies is anything but uniform — it is always changing, multiple, provocative, and vital. An enduring beat experienced and shared through the arts, Africa has deep roots in Chicago, and this connection is fostered by the work of the Africa International House and its partners in creating the festival each year. Exhibition is co-presented by the Logan Center for the Arts and the Africa International House USA, Inc. Several related events in various venues.

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.

40th Anniversary 1st Exhibit: "Carved, Cast, and Crumpled: Sculpture All Ways." September 27-December 21.
The Smart becomes a sculpture museum! with 175 works from its collections and promised gifts.
What makes an object a sculpture? This immersive Museum-wide exhibition investigates the essential qualities of three-dimensional art across historical and cultural contexts. Comprised entirely of three-dimensional works and a handful of drawings by sculptors, it showcases a foundational component of teh Museum's collection, one that can be traced back to the Joel Starrels, Jr. Memorial Collection of modern sculpture that was featured in the Smart's original exhibition in the fall of 1974. Curators: the entire curatorial staff with Senior Curator Richard A. Born as coordinating curator.

Gallery X- September 27 2014-June 14, 2015
Designed by the Chicago-based Range Design, GalleryX is a flexible, open space at the center of the Museum that will serve as a hub for creative discussions and experiences of al sorts during the Smart's 40th anniversary exhibitions Carved, Cast Crumpled and Objects and Voices. It will be home to informal displays of art, public discussions, programs, experiments, and a new project by Interpreters in Residence 500 Clown. Gallery X is also designed to be a free resource for groups to fill with meetings, classes, get-togethers, rehearsals, and ideas. All are welcome to use Gallery X as a forum to meet, create, and collaborate.
Through these activities, the Smart will encourage visitors to explore the Museum and its collection in new ways. The lessons we learn from the GalleryX initiative will inform our futures approaches to interpretation and visitor engagement, and will help to redefine the Smart's role as a teaching musuem in the 21st century.

The Art of Experience: 500 Clown 2014-2015 Interpreters in Residence.
Among the principal activities centered in GalleryX will be The Art of Experience: The Smart Museum, a new project devised by 500 Clown's Adrian Danzig and Rebecca Stevens, the Smart's 2014-2015 Interpreters in Residence. The residency provides a forum for Chicago-based artists with an interest in social engagement to create unique art experiences with Smart Museum guests. With The Art of Experience, 500 Clown invites visitors to draw cards and follow prompts that play with the idea of what is "supposed" to happen when visiting an art museum. Each card is an invitation that encourages visitors think differently about the work on view, provoking laughter, song, and many other experiences.

40th Anniversary 2nd Exhibit: Objects and Voices: A Collection of Stories: February 12-June 14, 2015.
Why do objects matter? What kind of stories do they tell? Through a series of microexhibitions curated by 20 guest collaborators, Objects adn Voices reveals the multiple ways we work with, learn from, and enjoy objects ar art. This collection-based exhibition is divided into a series of small thematic presentations organized by distinguished professors, artists, museum professionals, school partners, UChicago students, and notable Smart alumni. These vignettes reveal how objects and stories are intertwined, preserved, re-interpreted, discovered, and re-invented at a university art museum like the Smart.
CURATORS: Richard A. Born, Russell Bowman, Frederick de Armas, Kris Ercums, Shannon Foster and her fifth grade students, Chelsea Foxwell, Keith Hartley, Berthold Hoeckner, Alice Karin, Hannah Lemma, Aden Kumler, Kerry James Marshall, Christina Mehring, Iva Olah, Jie Shi, Angela Steinmetz, Catherine Stuer, Martha Ward, Kenneth Warren, David Wellbery, and Wu Hung with Curator and Associate Director of Academic Initiatives Anne Leonard as coordinating curator.

July 27, Sunday, 2-5 pm. Opening at South Side Community Art Center, 3831 S. Michigan. Printmaker Eldzier Cortor. As the South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC) approaches its 75th Anniversary in 2015, it will host an exhibit of the work of one of its founders, Master Artist/Printmaker Eldzier Cortor, beginning Sunday July 27. A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, Cortor at 98, is still a practicing artist who weaves a social and political vision into his work. The opening reception for the exhibit will take place from 2 - 5 p.m. at the SSCAC located at 3831 South Michigan. Cortor's artistic style merges the influences of both traditional African art and European Surrealism, and he was among the first artist to prominently incorporate the African American female form into his work. He is noted for using elongated nude figures of women in intimate settings to depict the Black race and the continuance of Black culture. Of painting African American women he has said, "The Black woman represents the Black race. She is the Black Spirit; she conveys a feeling of eternity and a continuance of life."
"Cortor's work has always been deeply influenced by the social, political and economic challenges of the particular era in which he was creating," said Sammie Dortch, SSCAC Board President. "The SSCAC is thrilled to display our founders' work which comes from the artist himself." His pieces are available for purchase.
During the 1930s, Cortor found work with the Federal Art Project of the WPA, and in 1941, was one of the founding artists of the SSCAC. Cortor exhibited in the 1938 interracial show "An Exhibition in Defense of Peace and Democracy", which was sponsored by the Chicago Artists' Group. In 1940 he was one of the young artists exhibited at "The Exhibition of the Art of the American Negro" in Chicago. Cortor credits the studying of African sculptures at the Field Museum for transforming his work. According to Cortor, "that was the most important influence in all my work, for to this day you will find in my handling of the human figure that cylindrical and lyrical quality I was taught to appreciate in African art."

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.

August 15- October 12. The Pulse of Africa: Celebrating 25 Years of the African Festival of the Arts. Reception 6-8 Aug. 15 in Logan Cafe.
This Labor Day weekend marks the 25th anniversary of the African Festival of the Arts, an annual event that celebrates the dynamic and diverse arts of Africa and the African diaspora in the City of Chicago. The Logan Center, in conjunction with the Africa International House, the festival’s organizers, takes a look back at the artworks that have served as the image of the festival. Featuring posters and a selection of the original artworks that inspired them, you’ll see the work of artists including Dayo Laoye, Melvin King, Najjar, and Woodrow Nash. Examining the ways in which art serves as an expression of black culture, the Chicago-based Ghanaian-born artist Samuel Akainyah declared, “The pulse of Africa still beats in spite of its dispersion.” The pulse that Akainyah identifies is anything but uniform — it is always changing, multiple, provocative, and vital. An enduring beat experienced and shared through the arts, Africa has deep roots in Chicago, and this connection is fostered by the work of the Africa International House and its partners in creating the festival each year. Exhibition is co-presented by the Logan Center for the Arts and the Africa International House USA, Inc. Several related events in various venues.

You are the first to know about a new project of the Herald: Radio Hyde Park. This is a new way to tell your stories and get your news in Hyde Park. Read on to find out what it is and how we hope you will get involved!
In a week or two, you'll see a SoundCloud player go live on the Herald website. When you press play, you'll hear, or be able to choose if you prefer, news stories, music from and interviews with local artists, and, maybe most excitingly, stories and opinions from your neighbors.
If you have a story about your past, the history of the neighborhood, an opinion about it's future--- if you have anything to say, I want to hear from you. The Hyde Park Kenwood Community Conference has given me funds to come and record you using state-of-the-art equipment, and your voice will be added to the programming on Radio Hyde Park.
So get excited; there are interviews with the neighborhoods political and cultural players, carefully crafted news stories, and thoughts from your friends on the way.

7 South Side HP museums in 2014 formed a consortium known as Museum Campus South. One outcome is a trial trolley during August 2014 among the institutions, weekends 11-4. Building the support base and visibility, connecting among each other and in the neighborhood are among advantages cited.
the institutions are: DuSable Museum of African American History, FL Wright's Robie House, Museum of Science and Industry, David and Reva Logan Center, Oriental Institute, Renaissance Society, and Smart Museum of Art.
Info incl. trolley route, 120% discount in museum stores- www.facebook.com/museumcampussouth or www.MuseumCampusSouth.com.

The Smart Museum has joined with other nearby cultural institutions to form Museum Campus South. Every weekend during the month of August, visitors can take a free hop-on/hop-off shuttle operating with stops at the Smart Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, the Logan Center for the Arts, the Oriental Institute Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, and the Museum of Science and Industry.

A long-standing initiative that has gained momentum from its recent inclusion in the Chicago Cultural Plan, Museum Campus South connects visitors to attractions and amenities within the South Side neighborhoods of Hyde Park, Washington Park, and Woodlawn.

Commissioned to redevelop Chicago's Navy Pier for its 100th anniversary in 2016, James Corner combines landscape architecture, urban design, landscape ecology and engineering to create innovative solutions for modern-day cities, landscapes and social places. In his presentation, The Ecological Imagination: Life and the Design of Urban Public Spaces, Corner will share his vision for livable cities, which hinges on public spaces that offer a high-quality experience.
How can a city be shaped by its public realm rather than its streets and buildings? Join the discussion with award-winning landscape architect and "urban dreamscaper" James Corner. Architect of New York's acclaimed High Line, and the remarkable transformation of the world's largest landfill site, Freshkills, Staten Island, into New York's biggest park, Corner is redeveloping Chicago's Navy Pier for its 100th anniversary in 2016. His vision for livable cities rests on public spaces that offer a vibrant experience, made possible by the capacity of design to transform.
James Corner's new book, The Landscape Imagination: Collected Essays of James Corner 1990-2010 (Princeton Architectural Press, 2014) will be available to purchase at the event. A book signing will take place following the lecture.

*******October 18, Saturday and October 19, Sunday. Open House Chicago. Some locations in Hyde Park and South Shore, more in Bronzeville. architecture.org and openhousechicago.org, more details as date approaches.

150 cool places in 48 hours! Once again, Hyde Park has been chosen as one of the highlighted neighborhoods for Open House Chicago and the South East Chicago Commission has been selected as the community partner for the event!
Why Hyde Park? Hyde Park was originally a modest commuter neighborhood with frequent train service to downtown. In the 1890s, the combined effects of annexation to the City of Chicago, the World's Columbian Exposition and the establishment of the University of Chicago triggered a wave of development that included large numbers of residences, commercial buildings, civic structures, sacred spaces and enhanced transportation links. In the early 20th century, the community became increasingly diverse with new Jewish and African-American residents. A wave of urban renewal in the 1960s spared many of the area's most important historic buildings, which have since been augmented by significant new construction.

World premiere of Marhulets’s The Property to be presented at the Logan Center. 915 E. 60th St. $20 and up. On sale on July 1 2014 at lyricopera.org/property or 312-827-5600.

Lyric Unlimited, a new initiative of Lyric Opera of Chicago, continues its multifaceted program of expanded community engagement, artistic initiatives, and Lyric's longstanding education programs with the world premiere of The Property, a klezmer opera to be presented in partnership with the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, February 25–27, 2015. Commissioned by Polish composer Wlad Marhulets, The Property will feature the work of librettist Stephanie Fleischmann, director Eric Einhorn, and performances by members of Chicago’s Maxwell Street Klezmer Band.

From Logan release, July? 2014.

The 28-year-old Los Angeles-based Wlad Marhulets—winner of the Susan W. Rose Fund Grant, the Peter D. Faith Prize, and five ASCAP Awards (including their prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award)—has been commissioned to write the opera. Adapted from the acclaimed graphic novel by Rutu Modan, The Property tells the story of Regina Segal and her granddaughter Mica, who travel to modern Warsaw to try to regain family property lost during World War II. As their journey unfolds, Regina is forced to confront painful truths about her past, while Mica realizes their reasons for coming might not be all that they seemed.

Librettist Stephanie Fleischmann adapted the novel with director Eric Einhorn. Like the story, Marhulets’s vision for the work will incorporate traditional and modern musical styles—from klezmer to funk—to illustrate that the work exists in two places: memory and modern day.

Marhulets is known for incorporating klezmer influences into his work. His Concerto for Klezmer Clarinet and Orchestra had its world premiere by clarinetist David Krakauer with the Detroit Symphony in December 2009, and he has composed many smaller-scale chamber works that utilize the distinctive klezmer sound.

As a klezmer opera, The Property will draw on the Eastern European and Jewish references from Modan’s original story. The work is scored for a cast of six singers and a klezmer ensemble of seven instrumentalists, featuring members of Chicago’s Maxwell Street Klezmer Band.

The Property will feature three performances at the Logan Center on Wednesday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, February 26 at 7:30 p.m.; and Friday, February 27 at 1 p.m. It will also be performed at Skokie’s North Shore Center for the Arts on Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5, both at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $20 and will go on sale on July 1 at lyricopera.org/property or 312-827-5600.

The world premiere of The Property is the centerpiece of a series of activities planned around Lyric’s mainstage performances of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s 1968 The Passenger in February and March 2015. A recently rediscovered work that explores the devastating consequences of the Holocaust from the perspectives of both victim and perpetrator, it had its first complete staging at the Bregenz Festival in 2010 directed by David Pountney. Lyric presents the Chicago premiere of this acclaimed production. Weinberg’s father worked as a violinist and conductor in Yiddish theater, and provided Mieczyslaw with practical experience in and exposure to the traditional klezmer and liturgical Jewish music that informed his compositions.

Lyric Unlimited plans to present film screenings, chamber music recitals, symposia, and discussions at venues throughout Chicago in conjunction with The Passenger’s Chicago premiere. More information about these activities will be announced later this year.
