COMPLETE FESTIVAL SCHEDULE AND PROFILES ON SOME OF THE EVENTS AND ARTISTS THAT COMPRISE RENO’S ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS.


DIRECTOR’S NOTE | SUMMER 2011

Celebrate Artown’s sweet sixteenth

A

RTOWN HAS AN AMAZING STORY TO TELL.

As we enter our 16th year, we’re at a different place than we’ve previously been. Artown is constantly evolving. We push boundaries with the performances and acts we bring; one look at the World Music Series shows that with its global presence and outreach. This year more than ever, Artown’s participating artists have really taken ownership and are taking us to an entirely new level with performances and exhibits designed to engage, challenge and inspire. Local artists are a vital component to Artown and have contributed to the festival since day one. Our July calendar is bubbling over with local talent inspiring an excitement and energy that’s just spectacular. Stretching to 32 days beginning with Opening Night June 30 and concluding July 31, Artown is reinventing itself yet again for its “sweet 16” with new performances,

dynamic artist influences, unique events, expanded outreach outside the Reno city limits and nearly 400 choices. The arts are essential to any community and when you set aside a weekend, or a week, or as is Artown’s case an entire month, just to focus on the arts, we view it as our mission to provide value and a respite for people seeking to be entertained. And this July will do just that with a mix of local, national and international talent in a variety of art forms along with events that are free or low-cost at a several locations. The festival’s free events, a cornerstone of the month’s festivities, continue to attract thousands with a mix of local, national and international talent and family-friendly fare. Series during the month include the World Music Series, Family Series, Monday Night Music Series, Dancing in the Park and Movies in the Park. Discover the Arts remains a mainstay for children

6 to 12 introducing theater, dance, music, poetry and visual arts with workshops and performances each weekday in July. It’s going to be one incredible month and we hope you join us for one or many performances and events. We’ll see you in the park. Beth Macmillan EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

A F R O B E A T M A S T E R S make an appearance in Reno, you can bet it’s July and our town has become Artown. This annual celebration of the arts opens Thursday, June 30, and goes nonstop until closing night Sunday, July 31. “Artown is a coming together of the community to celebrate the arts,� says Beth Macmillan, executive director of Artown. “The sheer variety of our events ensures that everyone — from different age groups to different cultures — can connect with this festival.� One festival highlight will be Fourth of July at Hawkins Amphitheater. That evening, Pink Martini — a “little orchestra� that crosses genres and cultures — will perform, along with MarchFourth Marching Band. “It will be an incredible way to spend the Fourth of July,� Macmillan says. Collaborative musical performances highlight the festival mid-July, first with Doc Severinsen and the San Miguel Five. Severinsen, along with world-class guitarist Gil Gutierrez and three other musicians, mix guitar and trumpet for Latin, AfroLatin and gypsy jazz. Neo-soul diva India.Arie hits the stage two days later with Israeli musical icon Idan Raichel with their Open Door collaboration. Combining passionate R&B and pop in an Eastmeets-West experience, the show was a late addition to the festival but has generated a lot of buzz. AND

PINK MARTINI 8PM July 4 • Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater • $45 - $75 Celebrate July 4th with Pink Martini, the “little orchestraâ€? that’s big on sophistication and style with a worldwide repertoire that crosses genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop.

ARTOWN OVERVIEW

PERLA BATALLA

7:30PM June 30 • Wingfield Park • Free A rich voice and poetic lyrics set Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Perla Batalla apart from the rest. The world-class vocalist uses her Mexican-American roots to combine Mexican, Latin American and Mestiza music for a performance full of rhythm and pure joy.

“Artistic collaborations are so inspiring, often bringing together diverse artists for a soul-stirring performance. These performances will certainly stir the soul,” Macmillan said. During the month of July, Artown also caters to its younger audiences with the Family Series, which will include the beloved larger-thanlife Hudson Vagabond Puppets, performing the Beatrix Potter tale “Jemima the Puddle-Duck.”

“Open Door” is a stunning collaboration between the incomparable neo-soul diva India.Arie with Israeli superstar Idan Raichel. The pair creates a cross-genre collection of songs that are poignantly relevant to a global audience.

Not complete without a stunning display of dance, this year’s Artown lineup features New York City’s Stephen Petronio Company in “Underland” with music and lyrics by Nick Cave’s “Murder Ballads” at Grand Sierra Resort. The 32-day festival will close on a wonderful note, when global music collective Playing For Change performs in Wingfield Park. This group of musicians from around the world is on a mission to spread peace through music, from blues and funk to jazz and reggae, with all sorts of sounds in between. The performance takes place the same day as Tour de Nez’s final day. According to Macmillan, Artown continues to stretch further into the community — both geographically and demographically — with the help of local artists and presenters. “They’re helping different segments of our community experience art,” Macmillan says. “The local artists are making that happen, and Artown is the vehicle.” ■

MEET THE ARTIST

NATIVE NEVADAN SEES

BEAUTY BENEATH THE SURFACE 2011 I S N E V A D A T H R O U G H A N D â&#x20AC;&#x201D; created by a Reno native, the work reflects the rich diversity that lies beneath an austere landscape. Artist Kelly Peyton, 23, graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in May with a bachelor of fine arts degree. She was selected from among more than a dozen artists to create the poster that will represent Artown on marketing materials and be seen throughout the community, and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Nevada, and I love Reno, and I was just really excited to be representing that,â&#x20AC;? Peyton says of receiving the commission. The work â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an unassuming sagebrush whose roots entwine a joyous profusion of color and organic form â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is symbolic of the Silver State, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sagebrush is a traditional view of Nevada â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a dry plant, outsiders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see the beauty of it,â&#x20AC;? Peyton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underneath the surface itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the beauty of Nevada, you have to dig for it to understand the culture beneath the surface.â&#x20AC;? For Artown Executive Director Beth Macmillan, the image speaks to the deep roots the arts have in Reno. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just seemed to match what happens to the arts in this community,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It comes from within and it bubbles to the surface.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013;  THROUGH

What was once a shuttered casino is now luxury condominiums. “Artown was the change agent, where businesses realized that people will come back downtown,” Macmillan says. “In talking to the developers of the Montage, one of the reasons they liked Reno was Artown,” says Dave Aiazzi, Reno City Councilman and Artown board member. The high-rise condo developers saw that people would go — and live — downtown. “People were going down there in summer to Wingfield Park.” Local restaurateur Jack Lyons and his partner Josh Polon, owners of Men Wielding Fire, have been providing food for Artown concerts and special events for six years. The positive exposure helped grow their catering business, Lyons says, and now, the two have opened a restaurant at 180 E. First St. “We’ve been a big supporter of Artown, and they’ve really helped us out,” Lyons says.

National Endowment for the Arts included Artown in its 2010 guide, highlighting the festival‘s $12 million economic impact through dining, shopping, hotel, gaming and entertainment expenditures. “Artown started for our own community in our backyard, but tourism has followed,” Macmillan says. “It’s really helped with rebranding Reno. People are coming here for the arts.” ■

O W E N T E R I N G I T S T H I R D S E A S O N , Encore is keeping Artown top-of-mind year round. Encore will present world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott performing with the Brazilian guitar rhythms of the Assad Brothers, April 26, 2012 at the Grand Sierra Resort Grand Theatre. “There were artists not around in July we’d love to have come,” Executive Director Beth Macmillan says of Encore’s origins. Now, Artown brings in performers from September through May, making the festival a nearly year-round experience. The Yo-Yo Ma performance caps a long effort to bring the cellist to Reno. “I’ve been working on securing Yo-Yo Ma for two or three years,” Macmillan says. Dave Aiazzi, Reno city councilman and Artown board member, credits Macmillans’ work to spread the word of Reno as an arts destination for securing Ma. “Because of the work she’s done in the past years, it makes artists think Reno is a place to stop,” Aiazzi says. “I’m very proud Reno is a place he (Ma) would like to perform. The people in Reno deserve to see Yo-Yo Ma.” ■
