“View From a Landing” KBH 2012

The 15th annual
Humanities Montana Festival of the Book will celebrate the literature of the West over 70 authors, October 9-11, in downtown Missoula.
 
Following a North American premiere, we are planning a Montana tour to bring Bella Vista to the beautiful place it calls home. If you’re in Montana and would like to bring Bella Vista to your community, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at bellavista@slowtale.net. Looking forward to distribution, we’ve partnered with a Los Angeles-based sales company to help us explore options. So: stay tuned for information on upcoming screenings this fall, and more, as we continue on this exciting path!
Perhaps you know that Bella Vista is a recipient of the Montana Film Office’s Big Sky Film Grant. We’ve been hard at work editing behind-the-scenes videos that will be featured on the Film Office’s YouTube channel — you’ll hear from our cast, crew and production team on the development of the film, the experience of working on it, and what we think it means for filmmaking in Montana. We’ll let you know as soon as these are live! Shout outs to Robert Bohannon and Tom Stagg, our intrepid videographers who did an excellent job capturing the life of our set.

Through InLight, 1708 has created an on-going opportunity for Richmond to experience the city in unexpected and surprising ways.

Public Art Marketing & Community Engagement
The Fall Public Art Classroom will cover the development and implementation of public art marketing and engagement plans, strategies, messages, online tools, and educational resources.  Public art programs face unique communications and engagement challenges. From how to define patrons to how to assess and communicate the value of a collection, public art professionals need marketing and community engagement strategies to build appreciation and support their collection and programs.
Join experts and fellow practitioners to learn about strategic marketing and engagement efforts, communicating value and purpose to the public and internal partners, online marketing and engagement best practices, and educational resources that can be developed to further engage your audience.

 
Workshops by distinguished artists
Artists from all media are welcome to attend
Workshops will be available in basic encaustic technique, the use of resin in encaustic painting, design, weaving, mixed media, abstract and representational painting, cold wax painting, incorporating rust into encaustic painting, incorporating photography into encaustic painting, and a new printmaking technique known as “Encaustique.” Our distinguished faculty includes respected artists and teachers from across the United States and Canada. In many cases, the workshops offered here are at a substantial discount to what the artists typically charge.

Food for Thought
Being creative is about utilizing the tools you have to make situations better. Whether the problem has to do with the business or personal world, creativity is what drives the solution. Innovation is the product of creativity. World-changing solutions and compromise in relationships don’t just happen. People are responsible for social change.
Creativity is responsible for everything that we have today. Someone came up with an idea that  you are reaping the benefits of. Today we thank a very creative Californian for the reminder on how to ensure your imagination is still thriving.
We are already full of ideas. They shape everything we do, everyday. Yet it is important to strive for understanding. Reading more and listening to others can help you put life in a new light. Making adventure happen by traveling, taking the bus, or just experiencing something new will make you use new thoughts and strategies.
While exposing ourselves to all things new and making sure we stay on our toes is important to being able to innovate, we need to be able to feel comfortable and safe in where we are in life. Going for a walk and spending time in nature is critical in feeling grounded. Admiring the music you love and reminding yourself that YOU are YOU and the only YOU is by far most important.
You only have as much potential for change as you allow yourself to have. However, your potential is contingent on how creative you are.

As more photo apps crowd the market, Instagram continues to lead the way. The ultra-popular photo editing and sharing app allows users to snap an image, add a filter and share on their social networks with just a few clicks of a button. In a recent upgrade, the platform added 10 new editing tools that provide more substantial editing ability, without sacrificing user-friendliness that Instagram is known for.

“View From a Landing” KBH 2012

 
This afternoon, the U.S. Senate approved by voice vote the nomination of Dr. Jane Chu to lead the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The vote is welcome news to arts advocates, as the NEA has operated without a chair since Rocco Landesman stepped down in December 2012. With the approval of the Senate, Dr. Chu is expected to formally begin her leadership of the agency in the next few days.
Responding to the news, NASAA CEO Jonathan Katz said, “On behalf of all the state and jurisdictional arts agencies, NASAA looks forward to a collaborative and productive working relationship with Dr. Chu, and to welcoming her to the nation’s capital as the new leader of the NEA.”
NASAA plans to organize a collective welcome album from all states and jurisdictions, and will invite Dr. Chu to meet with state arts agency staff and council members at Assembly 2014 in New Orleans this fall.

The Montana Preservation Alliance and the Archie Bray Foundation cordially invite volunteers to assist with the continued preservation and stabilization of Kiln 7 and Kiln 8. Over the past 4 years, teams from the University of Pennsylvania, Montana Preservation Alliance, Archie Bray foundation and many other wonderful people joined together to save these important structures.  Through the hard work and dedication of these groups, the preservation and stabilization of Kiln 7 is within reach!  This is a fun and exciting opportunity for individuals to directly participate in saving these important structures for future generations and visitors to the Archie Bray complex.  Regardless of skill-level or experience, we would love to have you be a part of our team.  Even if you are unable to volunteer, please stop in, say hello and share your stories. Matt Morgan from the Montana Preservation Alliance will be supervising and working on the kilns from June 23rd to July 15th.  There is also the potential for metal conservation around the kilns, taking place August 6th through August 16th.   Primarily the work will consist of repointing the brickwork on several sections of Kiln 7, cleanup of debris and material around Kiln 8, removal of packing rust on Kiln 8’s metal bands, and working on preparing the parapet of Kiln 7 for a membrane roof.  Regardless of your skill-level, there is work that everyone will be able to participate in and will bring us that much closer to realizing the completion of Kiln 7.  Whether you are able to commit to a couple hours, or days, we would greatly appreciate your help and are looking forward to our continued commitment to the preservation of the Archie Bray complex.

Public Art/Street Art 
Wednesday, July 2, 2014 – 3:00pm to 4:00pm Eastern Time
Public art always had a broad definition, but how does street art fit into this field? Recently, more and more cities and towns have been embracing street art as a community-based initiative in an effort to develop a visual voice for their neighborhoods or districts. Public art programs have begun to develop around or support these community-based forms of expression. In this 60-minute webinar you will learn why street art has become more socially accepted and how in some areas it has developed into coordinated public art programs. This webinar is for public art administrators, community leaders, artists and others who are working in the community arts-sphere.

Two Calls for Missoula Public Art Committee
Direct link to Public Art Call Web Page:
http://www.ci.missoula.mt.us/899/Public-Art-Calls
The selected artist or artist team will create an original artwork to be placed in Silver Park. The artwork to be selected will be centrally located in a vibrant public space between the Clark Fork River and the new, mixed-use Old Sawmill District, and experienced primarily by visitors relaxing or recreating on foot and by bicycle. The City of Missoula Public Art Committee expects the work to be an iconic and enduring landmark of the highest quality in both execution and concept. The commissioned work can be in any durable medium.

The Public Art Committee encourages proposals that balance the artistic design in the artwork with the setting, history, and re-purposing theme of Silver Park. Though well-integrated into its site, the artwork should be very legible as an autonomous artistic intervention in the landscape. At the same time, the artwork must permit the uses and functions of its larger context. Artwork must be safe, durable and low-maintenance in the Missoula climate and park environment. In addition, several interesting “relics,” that is, large, left over rusting hulks of old machinery found at the site, may be utilized or integrated into the artist’s concept, though not required.

Submit by Monday July 28, 2014, no later than 5:00 p.m.

Venice Art Project
With the Patronage of the Veneto Region and the City of Venice, the Venice Printmaking Studio has established the Venice Art Project. The mission of this project is to contribute a broad cultural creative presence to the city of Venice by hosting international artists working and exhibiting in Venice, for the International Glass Biennial Exhibition.
  
Thank you for your interest in being a part of this international artistic project. Each accepted artist will spend three weeks in Venice, experiencing the city through painting, drawing, watercolour, printmaking, collage, or other graphic work. One chosen piece of each artist’s work will then be translated into a work of glass in collaboration with the glassmaster of Scuola del Vetro di Murano. During your stay you will be provided with accommodation in the Venice Art Project’s residency apartment.
  
You will have at your disposal a studio space set up according to the technique you will use, along with all materials necessary to realize the work. The maximum dimension of the works will be 80 x 100 cm (approx. 2.6 feet by 3 feet). All the works created will remain as property of the artist, including the translated glass-works, to be shipped to you at the end of the exhibition.
  
We are in the process of securing the famous historical environment of the Venice Arsenale to host The International Glass Biennial Exhibition opening in May 2015 at the Arsenale di Venezia. The exhibition will be limited to 40 artists. The artists will be invited in groups of five for three weeks starting immediately, April 23rd, 2014. The deadline for the completion of all works is February 1st, 2015.
  
Each edition will be organized by a museum curator; the first edition will be arranged by Courtney McNeil, Curator of the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Georgia, USA. As a sign of gratitude, the catalogue will dedicate a page to you and to the Institution that supports your participation in the Venice Art Project.

Artist’s travel expenses, meals, and shipping costs for artwork are not provided.

noon-4pm

Clay and glazes will be provided at these events. We will be doing low fire electric firings and a cone 10 Reduction firing for bowls that are created.
The Food Bank is also accepting handmade bowl donations of works already created.  There are two turquoise plastic bins at the studio if you wish to deposit a donation of that kind – or donations can be dropped off at the Missoula Food Bank!

The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
The Missoula Food Bank’s Empty Bowls will take place on June 25th, from 6-8pm at Ten Spoon Winery. Tickets are $30- Please call to place a reservation (406) 549-0543 Ext. 103 or visit their website for more information.

Nancy Holt Memorial at Sun Tunnels on the Summer Solstice
Join us to celebrate the life and the work of the artist Nancy Holt (1938-2014) at her sculpture Sun Tunnels in the Utah desert on the Summer Solstice, June 21, 2014. This is an informal memorial and celebration, open to the public, with no scheduled events – other than the sunset lining up in the tunnels, around 8:30pm.  We are encouraging people to come on their own, being prepared for high desert conditions: remote, waterless, treeless, hot, cold, and spectacular.
Getting There:
Sun Tunnels location information is here: http://clui.org/ludb/site/sun-tunnels
If you are flying in, Salt Lake City Airport has lots of rental cars. It usually takes less than three and a half hours to get from the airport to Sun Tunnels. A sedan should be OK to make the trip, but a higher clearance car means less chance of scraping the bottom on dirt roads. 
Accommodation and Travel Tips:
The Monaco Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City is comfortable, and there are lots of cheaper chain hotels in the city. Or you can drive directly to Wendover, 120 miles west on Interstate-80, and closer to Sun Tunnels, where there are lots of motels and casino resorts, where food and drink is available 24 hours a day. The Montego Bay and the Wendover Nugget are both reasonable places to stay and eat, in their own way.
If you do not want to drive all the way back to Salt Lake City after the sunset (1 hour on dirt roads, followed by 2 hours on the interstate), you are allowed to camp at Sun Tunnels, though there are no rest room or trash facilities. Alternatively (and likely preferably), arrange to stay in Wendover, just over an hour south of Sun Tunnels.
If you plan to camp at/around Sun Tunnels, please be aware that the artist was very enamored with the land and landscape at Sun Tunnels and wanted the land to appear untouched by human intervention, as much as that is possible. And be aware that much of the land away from the Tunnels is owned by other people.
Other Points of Interest:
The nearest restrooms and retail opportunities to Sun Tunnels are located in the small town of Montello, 20 miles or so to the west, which has a motel, store, and the lively Cowboy Bar. 
Good, fat, cheap, cash-only Mexican food is available until 9 pm (usually) at the Salt Flat Café, located at the gas station at the Bonneville Salt Flats exit of Interstate 80, four miles east of Wendover. You should definitely look at the Bonneville Salt Flats at the end of this road, if you have never been there. 
While in Wendover you can visit the old airbase, and the Center for Land Use Interpretation information and exhibition facilities (more information here: http://clui.org/page/wendover). Spiral Jetty, of course, is on the other side of the Great Salt Lake, around five hours from Sun Tunnels http://www.diaart.org/sites/page/59/2156.

“There is a new feature length film documentary about street painting and the pavement art movement, worldwide – spanning the last generation.
I watched the film yesterday. It was FANTASTIC. It is stunningly put together, and the stories told are that of my evolving vocation, for the past 20 years.
It is a journey foretold to me at age 34, before my job as a pavement art street painter began at age 37…. before, I ever heard the words “Madonnari,” “Street Painter,” or “Pavement Artist.”
The film beautifully captures the scenery of the places I’ve traveled and the inspiration/rewards of visiting different cultures. I have been blessed to work or know the six amazing Artists who are profiled as my “Familia Madonnari.” The documentary chronicles the important aspects of our art and lives as street painters.”
