Executive Director’s Letter
September 17, 2013
It was an exciting weekend in Station North. The arts district came to life with the Akimbo Dance Festival last Sunday, including the park at the corner of Lafayette and St. Paul where GBCA member Muse 360 performed against the backdrop of murals by fellow members Dr. Bob Hieronimus and Michael Owen. Congratulations to the organizers and our many members who participated.
Congratulations, also, to member High Zero Festival on its 15th Anniversary. I hope you caught the great coverage in City Paper and interview with founder and GBCA board member John Berndt. More importantly, check out some of the amazing events taking place around the city this week including those at Theatre Project.
This past week, my membership tour took me to Goya Contemporary for the opening of Ann Hamilton’s exquisite work and a great conversation with Amy Raehse. Continuing on the theme of members, The Hippodrome is gearing up for three inspiring performances of Darin Atwater and Soulful Symphony, the first of which is this weekend on September 21st.
Feeling especially creative? FunGuide redevelopment continues and we are still on the hunt for a spectacular new name.
