Arts Action Alert – Urge Congress to Support Charitable Giving

Friday, February 24th, 2006

Americans for the Arts logoOur friends at Americans for the Arts sent this out, and are urging that all interested parties contact Congress on this issue (use the “take action” link in the next paragraph).

Congress is now finalizing a bill that would have a major impact on the arts.  Next week, House and Senate negotiators will start working out a final version of tax legislation that is theoretically designed to promote charitable giving, including giving to the arts.  While the bill is large and complicated, the Senate version includes two provisions of particular importance: one that is very positive, and one that could have a negative effect on the arts and indeed on charities in general. Therefore, it is important for arts advocates to take action now to ensure that Congress includes the first provision and drops the second one.

The first provision would encourage artists to donate their works of art to nonprofit arts, cultural, and educational institutions by allowing them to claim a tax deduction for the true value of the works. The provision would both build collections for public use and give equal tax treatment to artists and non-artists. Currently, artists can write off only the cost of materials, such as paint and canvas, not the actual value of the work, while collectors can deduct the full fair-market value. The provision is important because most museums, libraries, and archives have limited acquisition funds; the primary way to acquire new works is through donations. This type of new tax incentive could make it more financially feasible for artists to donate their works for public enjoyment rather than selling them into private hands.

The second provision, while intended to expand charitable giving, was in fact hastily drafted and could have a negative impact on many taxpayers and indeed on charities themselves. As a recent Wall Street Journal article stated, “A Senate measure designed to expand charitable giving could result in a tax increase for some 37 million taxpayers.”  Here’s how it works:  taxpayers would be allowed to write off gifts only above an annual threshold of $210 ($420 for couples who file jointly). In the short term, anybody who gives to charity and also claims itemized deductions will see their taxes go up, because the first $210 of their charitable contributions were not tax deductible. In the long term, Congress is likely to raise the threshold higher, thereby creating a disincentive for people to give to charities in the future. Charities and the communities they serve will suffer. 

 Please help us fight this dangerous first step down a long and slippery slope. (We encourage you to read Americans for the Arts’ position paper on this issue.)

Again, a House-Senate conference committee is set to craft a final bill starting next week, so now is the time to send a message to both of your Senators and your House Member. We have provided a sample letter to Congress that you can customize to reflect your own concerns.

Thank you for your continued support of the arts.

from Randall Rosenbaum, Executive Director, RISCA

What the Press is Saying:

“An astonishingly seamless blend of words, video, set elements and dance.” – New York Times Year in Review

“In all of Everett’s work, there’s a pleasing tension between the homemade and the adroitly professional. The performing is unforced and low key- as true as the old photos and blurry home movies, and framed with care..” – Village Voice:

 ”Anyone (and everyone) should see Home Movies. And see it again. Because you can’t get all that¹s in the sprawling (but incredible tight) multi-generational, multi-cultural, multi-media piece the first time around.” – Providence Phoenix:

“It is hard to say exactly what Home Movies is. It’s dance, it’s theater, it’s storytelling, it¹s movies, mostly it’s very good.” - Providence Journal

“Home Movies skillfully blends text, movement, film and a wide range of music to reveal hilarious and painful common denominators of family living” – The Boston Globe

“The 70-minute collaborative work, …. commingles movement, music, words, snapshots, actual home movies, and video on unfurling translucent screens to reveal the stories of four families whose lives could not be more different but whose emotional journeys touch places in us all” – The Boston Herald

A Little Lower Than the Angels

Monday, February 20th, 2006

NewGate Theatre, in association with Playwrights Place Productions and Salve Regina University brings its critically acclaimed production of ‘A Little Lower Than the Angels’ to Salve Regina University’s Bazarsky Hall in O’Hare Academic Center, Wednesday, February 22nd. Performances are free to the public and will be held at 2 and 7pm. The cast and crew will be available for Question and Answer sessions after both Salve performances.A Little Lower Than the Angels will be presented February 24th-26th at Tiverton 4 Corners Arts Center 3852 Main Road, Tiverton, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $15.  Call 454-0454 for reservations for the Tiverton performance.

Dave Christner is a nationally produced playwright, NewGate audiences will remember him from his full-length play ‘Family Values’ (3×3 festival 1996) and his short play ‘Magnificent Obsession’ (Sacred & Profane, Short Play Festival 2004).

This drama, is about the infamous ‘rum for slaves’ trade triangle in Rhode Island. The characters and events occurring in this play are fictional; however, the major role that Rhode Island played in the American Slave Trade between 1725 and 1807 is a historical fact. During the period, many prominent Rhode Island businessmen and families were involved in the trade triangle, in which Newport distilled rum was traded for African slaves, who were then sold to purchase the finance of sugar and molasses from the West Indies. Throughout the late 1700s and the early 1800s this practice was an integral part of Rhode Island’s economy.

‘A Little Lower than the Angels’ combines historical fact and compelling original drama to tell the story of a variety of characters of both African and European descent who are caught up in this triangle.

Ready to Emerge at Gallery Z

Monday, February 20th, 2006

Z Please join us next Thursday, February 23, from 5-9 PM, as Gallery Z will behosting an opening reception of the exhibition Ready to Emerge: RISD Senior Sculptors. The exhibit will be displayed through Saturday February 25, 2006.

On display will be selected pieces from the thesis portfolios of the sixteen students in their last months of the rigorous academic experience of Rhode Island School of Design. Three emerging artists in this exhibition include: Noel Anderson of Binghamton, New York, Nathan Sowiski of Buffalo, New York, and Samantha Gerlach of Cresskill, New Jersey.

Noel Anderson uses a variety of techniques to make her three-dimensional works: knitting, felting, and machine knitting, in addition to her drawings. She weaves together animal creatures and the sexuality to create a shocking experience. Her most recent work contains colorful felted beings with exaggerated sex organs.

Nathan Sowiski is a steel sculptor who uses the tools of the RISD Sculpture Foundry to the extreme. The series he is working on now is entitled, “Icons”: wall-mounted pieces that are shiny characters of a larger language. The language uses architectural elements to mimic Sci-Fi futuristic worlds through simple imagery.

Samantha Gerlach is obsessed with our society’s wastefullness. She uses only materials that she finds in dumpsters and garbage cans on Sunday nights in Providence. She states,”Most people equate garbage with “bad.” I don’t! I equate using garbage with giving it a second chance where someone else gave up on it, with playing Dr. Frankenstein.”  Lately, she has been focused on creating pop culture figures out of such fabric. With one inch squares of fabric, she can “paint” large two-dimensional works in an Impressionistic cartoonish, brightly colored style.

Other Students included in this exhibition include: Katherine Brooks, Eleanor Sabin, Jess Ryan, Tara Kopp, Kirstie Dabbs, Sean Springer, Bethany Schwarz, Sara Berg, Alex Dunbar, Kate Ferencz, Jeff Wu, Anna Loveday-Brown, and Lindsay Garcia.
