The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research 

Sculptor Darren Foote of Providence and Maya Allison, co-director of 5 Traverse Gallery in Providence, took home prizes in the 2009 New England Art Awards.

John Nicholas Brown Center Workshop On Financial Advice For Artists

February 9th, 2010

 

Peace, Love, and Finance:
Personal Financial Advice for
Artists and Cultural Workers
A workshop presented by the John Nicholas Brown Center
for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage

Event Info
Tuesday, March 2, 2010
3-5 p.m.

John Nicholas Brown Center
357 Benefit Street
Providence, RI

Facilitators: E. Larson Gunness, independent financial advisor

Public Humanities ProgramEconomic times are tough in the aftermath of the banking collapse of 2008 and 2009, and will be for some time. People face intense financial pressure in their personal lives. Artists, musicians, writers, dramatists, and other creatives feel this acutely. Many are unsure how to develop the skills and knowledge they’ll need to find their way through. Tools, resources, and approaches from the world of business and personal finance can be embraced by the arts and humanities communities, but only if the transfer of knowledge is done in a way that understands and addresses their unique needs, concerns, and interests. If you have made a commitment to your creative practice, and are struggling with the financial implications of that commitment, then this workshop is for you. Those who work in small and lean organizations dedicated to providing support to creative practitioners are also encouraged to attend.

About the presenter

E. Larson Gunness has over ten years experience in the financial services industry. For the past four years, he has run his own independent financial firm. He also has prior employment with Smith Barney and Fidelity Investments. He holds degrees from Kenyon College and the MIT Sloan School of Management. In addition, Larson is a writer, storyteller, and musician. He is currently working on an M.F.A. in interdisciplinary arts through a low residency program at Goddard College.

The workshop will include refreshments.

Providence artist selected for public-art project in Ohio

February 9th, 2010
A Providence artist has been selected from three finalists to produce a $150,000 public-art project to help commemorate this city’s bicentennial in the fall, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Artist Brower Hatcher, who works at Mid-Ocean Studio in Providence, plans to build a stone-and-steel sculpture on the site of a former blacksmith shop, with an old stone wheelwright table inside.

He expects to cover the structure with vines, allowing Dublin residents the chance to “reveal” the city’s history by cutting back the vines, according to a newspaper article announcing the award of the project.

The award was announced Monday night at the Dublin City Council meeting.


Read more about Hatcher’s work in this Providence Journal story, which calls him “the creative force of Mid-Ocean Studio.”
The artist has made abstractions in steel that have been installed in public parks and memorials in the United States and abroad over the last 35 years or so, according to Journal archives.

Artists at any stage in their careers are invited to consider submitting their work for consideration for a temporary public art project for New York streetscapes: The Street Gallery: Gatescapes Public Art.  

The newest venture of Mediacy Inc., the Soho-based advertising company, “gatescapes” are large-format, billboard-sized vinyl placed on roll-down security gates — initially in New York, and in Los Angeles by mid-year.  Woven into this advertising program, Mediacy is offering the sites to artists, in four-week timeframes between ad displays, for the installation of temporary public artworks.  These storefront “windows” may be used singly, or in combination – triptychs, corner wrap-arounds, or even in a series along a whole block – in locations such as 14th Street at 7th Avenue, Saint Marks between 2nd and 3rd, or the corner of 8th Avenue and 51st Street, and over 150 more to choose from.

The Street Gallery review panel — which includes public art administrator Kendal Henry, curator Jane Panetta, public artist Janet Zweig, and myself — is especially interested in artwork that responds to the site, the streetscape or neighborhood, the public audience or public nature of the space, or to nighttime viewing conditions.

Details are available at http://www.thestreetgallery.org.

Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing, rolling basis.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you would like a copy of the full project overview and RFQ in PDF format.

Best,

February 8th, 2010
 

RI CFA Logo Long



Tuesday’s reveal of Governor’s Carcieri’s budget was a wake up call to the creative community.  His near elimination of the state’s investment in the arts and creative sector would be devastating not only to the many who will lose their jobs in this sector, but also the many who benefit from the creative sector’s ripple effect.  Many of you responded to our call to join us – thank you!
We released our response to the Governor’s cuts to the arts in a press release following the Governor’s announcement.  See here for community reaction.  Since, we’ve been talking with reporters, talking with legislators, and hearing from you.

1.  Attend an advocacy training!  Join us in Pawtucket or Newport for a 3-hour advocacy training, facilitated by our consultant, Lori Fresina of M+R Strategic Services.  At these sessions, you’ll learn the tools and tactics we will use to fight these cuts.

Newport:
Friday, March 5
2:00 – 5:00 pm

2.  Sign Up to meet with your legislator!  In person meetings will be the most effective – we want to be sure they take the time to absorb our arguments, and learn from you as their constituent on the importance of the creative sector to Rhode Island’s economy, future and magnetism – an asset not many other state’s can claim.  Let us know if you are willing to make the call and schedule the meeting on your sign up.  We’ll group you with others in your area and help you coordinate.

Call to Artists- RFQ for sculptors/public artists

February 4th, 2010

Parkside Business & Community In Partnership, Inc.

Request for Qualifications

For the Creation of a Public Art Piece

Parkside Business & Community In Partnership, Inc. (PBCIP) is

requesting submissions of qualifications for a public art piece which

will be installed on the Haddon Avenue commercial corridor in Camden,

NJ.

Deadline for submission is March 1, 2010.

Project Description: Background and Scope

History:

This piece of art will be the culmination of PBCIP’s first annual

Youth Public Arts program, wherein youth aged 12-18 worked with

professional artists to conceptualize ideas for a piece of

3-dimensional artwork. PBCIP seeks a professional artist to create

this piece of public art, which will be sited in the youth’s

neighborhood, the Parkside neighborhood of Camden, NJ.

Community Goals:

The goal of the Youth Public Arts program is to empower the youth by

bringing their vision for their city to fruition while introducing them

to careers and concepts in art, community organizing and urban

planning. The piece of art will be a key step in PBCIP’s diverse and

creative approach to the renewal of the Haddon Avenue business district

in Camden’s Parkside neighborhood. This is the first of several

public art pieces planned for the Haddon Avenue business corridor.

The Artist’s Role:

The youth and PBCIP have come up with ideas, keywords, and themes that

they would like to see incorporated into the piece. These ideas will

be provided to each finalist, along with examples of public art which

the youth found appealing. It will be the artist’s challenge to

integrate their own aesthetic with the ideas provided by the youth to

create a cohesive concept. After the proposals are received, the

youth, in conjunction with and under the guidance of PBCIP’s

selection committee, will select the proposal that they feel most

closely expresses their vision.

Durability and Safety:

The artist will be expected to use a durable material, such as (but not

limited to) metal or stone, that will age gracefully and withstand

extremes of weather. The piece should be of a permanent nature. The

piece should be resistant to vandalism, for example, by employing a

protective coating. The piece should have no sharp, jutting or jagged

edges that may prove a danger to the public. The piece will likely be

installed on a public sidewalk, and will therefore be required to

comply with ADA guidelines. The artist should keep the above in mind

when crafting the piece.

Eco-Friendly Focus:

The artist will be expected to incorporate eco-friendly choices in the

creation of the piece. Some examples of eco-friendly materials are

recycled metal or reclaimed granite. It is not required that the

entire piece be made from such materials, but there should be more than

a token amount.

Working Relationships:

The artist can expect to work closely with the staff of Parkside

Business & Community In Partnership, Inc., and may also expect to have

professional dealings with representatives of the City of Camden, and

the Boys & Girls Club of Camden County.

Project Timeline:

3-01-2010 RFQ due date*

secured.

This includes but is not limited to:

* Artists design fee

* Materials such as paint, steel, concrete, etc.

* Fabrication costs
