This past week, Liz Lerman’s Healing Warswent into production at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. As the Washington Post reports, “The show, which is at Arena’s 200-seat Kogod Cradle through June 29, is a cornerstone in the ambitious, Lerman-inspired National Civil War Project, with partnerships between universities and arts organizations in the District, Baltimore, Boston and Atlanta poised to yield a dozen newly commissioned works.”
Liz continues to have an incredible impact on the international arts scene incorporating science, social justice, medicine and so many aspects of humanity into her work. We are so fortunate to have her living in Baltimore while working and engaging in partnerships throughout the area. She has and continues to be a tremendous asset to GBCA and particularly the development of the Urban Arts Leadership Program.
Many of you know Melanie Robey, Membership and Development Manager for GBCA, and will be sad to hear that she is leaving GBCA. Melanie joined the GBCA team in May 2012 and has played a critical role in the organization’s growth and development. With a steady hand, Melanie has overseen GBCA’s growth in membership from 80 to over 300 organizations and individual artists. Happily, Melanie is leaving for a wonderful job in Washington and will continue living right here in Baltimore. Please join us in both thanking Melanie, and congratulating her on her new position!
All the best,
