“Art is the signature of civilizations.”

– Jean Sibelius

Dear Friends of ARTS NC STATE: When I arrived at NC State over 30 years ago in the summer of 1983, the total enrollment on campus was just over 22,500 and 36% of the students were women. The new College of Veterinary Medicine was about to begin its third year, and Centennial Campus did not yet exist, except as an emerging theoretical concept. In that same year, Motorola introduced the first (walkie-talkie-sized) mobile phone, the modern Internet came into being and Sally Ride became the first America woman to fly in space. Chicken McNuggets and Cabbage Patch Kids were first sold, 25-year old Michael Jackson introduced the “moonwalk” ... and of course, the Wolfpack won the NCAA basketball championship. Scientifically, technologically and culturally, much has changed in the world and on our campus over the past thirty years. Today, NC State's enrollment is over 34,000 and 44% are women. The College of Veterinary Medicine is ranked third in the country, and Centennial Campus is a model public-private research campus admired and studied by governments and institutions of higher learning around the globe. Not surprisingly, NC State is now regularly ranked among the best public research universities in the U.S. In one very fundamental way, though, NC State is remarkably similar to the place I became so deeply fond of 30 years ago: Then and now, our students arrive here with a refreshing eagerness to realize their dreams and their personal and professional potential, and to explore and expand their intellectual and cultural horizons. It is not surprising that our students have been and are the heart and soul of what we do in ARTS NC STATE every day. Regardless of their majors, students throughout the university know that the arts ignite their creativity, expand their conceptual thinking and prepare and empower them to view the world more flexibly and thus more confidently. I am delighted, occasionally surprised and sometimes deeply moved when I talk with our students about the importance and the impact of the visual and performing arts on their lives. I am touched by the very personal stories they share about arts experiences large and small that have reshaped and deepened their understanding of who they are and how they perceive and navigate the world around them. Through their engagement in the arts, our students have found that their personal, social and professional frames of reference have gradually expanded, frequently in unconventional and unexpected ways, allowing them to envision possibilities and connections that otherwise might simply have been overlooked or unimagined. I have a deep respect and affection for the students of NC State. They are remarkable, grounded, and extraordinarily generous in spirit. They are entrepreneurial, creative and intellectually adventurous and passionate about being a catalyst for positive change in their communities. And they understand that through their support of the arts they are the benefactors and the guardians of something profoundly important: Our cultural canvas of the past and for the future.

N. Alexander Miller III, Vice Provost

Phoenix rising A student-built ephemeral sculpture installation celebrates the rebirth of the 1928 historic chancellor’s residence as the future home of the Gregg Museum of Art & Design.

Alex Miller, vice provost for ARTS NC STATE in the Division of Academic and Student Affairs, said, “The design is wonderful, and it will ensure ongoing, vibrant interest in the work itself, as well as encouraging curiosity about the site and its future.”

Students involved in this project include: Brandon DuPree, Will Edwards, Katherine Hoke, Ken Jackson, Ben Jones, Nathyn Levin, Leena McDonald, Ainsley Mumford, Charles Parrish III, Dorian Perez, Jay Pulley, Mercy Rognstad, Austin Roland and Michelle Ye.

For over 20 years, students in horticultural science professor Will Hooker’s landscape design class have envisioned, designed and constructed ephemeral bamboo sculptures as class projects. The Fall 2013 project is especially meaningful, as it not only stirs excitement about the future museum, it also marks professor Hooker’s retirement after 34 years at NC State, where he has pioneered classes in sustainable design and permaculture.

The creation spans 18 feet and creates an arch over the brick path leading to the front entrance of the historic residence. The arch was built on-site, while the phoenix component was built at Kilgore Hall and paraded down Hillsborough Street on the top of professor Hooker’s wildly painted pickup truck.

is closing the gap!

$3.85 million in student and university support + $250,000 in City of Raleigh funds + $2.4 million raised privately as of December 2013 + $1.5 million more given by supporters like you = $8.0 million and a new Gregg Museum!

Fund-raising progress Major Gifts

More than 25 generous individuals and foundations have chosen to make a major commitment of $25,000 or more to the Gregg Museum Campaign. Several have chosen to name spaces in the new Gregg and will be recognized with permanent donor plaques once the museum is complete. All of these visionary supporters believe in the future Gregg Museum of Art & Design, and we thank them for their support!

More than 40 households have joined the Founding Friends of the Gregg Museum Campaign!

The campaign’s Founding Friends program recognizes donors of $5,000+. Our goal is to recruit 200 Founding Friends and raise $1 million, nearly a quarter of our total private fund-raising goal. Founding Friends gifts (like all gifts to the campaign) may be paid over five years; therefore, you may contribute $1,000 each year for five years. Founding Friends will be acknowledged permanently on a comprehensive plaque that will be displayed prominently in the future museum. Together, the community can build the new Gregg!

As a reminder‌

All pledges to the Gregg Museum Campaign may be paid over a period of up to five years from the date of the original commitment. No gift is too large or small!

Alumna infusing Blue Man Group with some red and white by Chris Saunders

While in school at NC State, Rains got an internship in Manhattan, and it was there that her love of the theater began. “When I was up there, I got to see a lot of the theater shows,” she says. “My high school didn’t even have a theater program, so it was more a later-in-life type of thing.” So Rains focused on studying human resources back at Poole College. And she joined up with University Theatre on campus to start gaining experience in stage managing. “They were the most influential people during my time at State,” she says. “They wanted so much for their students to succeed. They were the ones who pushed me to attend the theater conference where I interviewed for this job.” Now on the road full time, Rains helps with rolling in to a town and unloading for a show. She puts up house signs in venues’ lobbies. She coordinates the ushers. And during the show, she’ll actually make the calls as far as the lights and the music. She’s one of the 24 people who make the Blue Men come to life. That includes cast, musicians and crew. Anna Rains came to NC State thinking she wanted to study plant genetics. She even did some undergraduate research for a year thinking she had made the right decision. But she soon got restless and wanted to take some time to figure out what she really wanted to do. During that time, Rains never got too down or “blue” about switching directions to become a business major in the Poole College of Management. That patience now affords her the chance to be blue almost every day. Rains is the assistant stage manager for the world-famous Blue Man Group, a traveling troupe of performance artists who offer a unique theater experience with paint, drums and other props. She landed the gig in August after attending a conference having to do with jobs in the theater. She will stay on the road with the Blue Men until June 2014.

With that small of a crew, Rains says it’s been an easy transition to the nomadic life of a stage manager. “We work together, live together and play together,” she says, laughing. “It’s very family-esque. Very dysfunctional family-esque, but in a cute sitcom type of way.” Since August, the job has taken Rains to places she never got to see growing up. She says Tulsa was an interesting place to get to know. Her favorite stop has been Montreal. And the job’s taught her that there’s actually a lot of red flowing in the Blue Man Group. It turns out one of the performers, Brian Tavener, who graduated from NC State in 2007, has been donning the blue paint since 2007.

Zach Howell Robert (Zach) Howell won the ARTS NC STATE Creative Artist Award for 2012-2013 for his composition 3 Sparks for mezzo and piano. Howell’s piece will be performed on February 18, 2014 at 7 pm as part of the ARTS NOW series. Robert (Zach) Howell was the sole recipient of the ARTS NC STATE Creative Artist Award in the 2012-2013 academic year for his standout music composition titled 3 Sparks. Howell, a Raleigh native and a senior majoring in sociology with a minor in music composition and philosophy, has been composing steadily since being introduced to contemporary classical music four years ago in Dr. Randolph Foy's 20th century music course, and has studied composition in recent years under Dr. Rodney Waschka II and Dr. J. Mark Scearce. Scearce said that Howell’s winning composition “features an imaginative approach that reflects an impressive level of artistic maturity, sureness of craft and individual voice. His work displays a fine sense of text setting, excellent vocal writing and a professional level of notation that makes his music stand out.”

ARTS NC STATE 2012-2013 Creative Artist Award Winner

Michael Seebold Michael Seebold won the ARTS NC STATE Creative Artist Award for 2011-2012 for his play The Spyglass Seven. Seebold’s work was produced and performed by NC State University Theatre in September 2013. Directed by John C. McIlwee; scenic design and projections by Jayme Mellema; costume design by Adrienne McKenzie & Em Rossi; lighting and sound design by Joshua A. Reaves. The Spyglass Seven is a one-act play of intriguing simplicity and strong melodrama that features the ghost of famed poet and author Edgar Allan Poe returning from the grave at the behest of his muse, Beauty. Wishing to spare him loneliness in death, Poe is given the task of finding his true ‘soul mate’ from the ghosts of seven important women in his life. From the director: Seebold has given us a view of Poe that allows the audience to span the arc of his literary genius throughout his life and he has done it with an entertaining conceit. The audience's reaction to this cavalcade of This production was supported with funding provided by the Suzanne Kennedy-Stoskopf Endowment for Creativity in the Performing Arts.

interesting women in Poe's life was very strong, with many comments about which female should have ended up the "love" of his life. Seebold’s format gave powerful insights into how these women were affected by this very eccentric and talented historical figure, as well as broad insights into women's roles in the 19th Century. From Matthew Hogan, student actor who portrayed Poe: I think that performing in an original play is perhaps the coolest thing I have ever done. Plus, the fact that Michael was there to bounce ideas off of was a huge benefit, especially when it came to developing the unique character of Poe. The Spyglass Seven was beautifully written; I only wish we could have had more time with it. From the playwright: I can remember in elementary school reading Poe's famous works, like The Raven. Later, I become familiar with his lesser known works and his public correspondence, and it inspired me. This was my first attempt at writing a stage play. The process was extremely rewarding – the highlight of my undergraduate career. It was mesmerizing to see the lines come to life. I attended the reading, rehearsals and performances. I received a lot of positive feedback, and it was interesting to hear the audience's different interpretations after the performance.

Seating Policy Doors open approximately one-half hour before curtain time. As a courtesy to performers and audience members, latecomers will not be seated until a suitable pause in the performance. Please note that due to the configuration of the theatres in Thompson Hall, late seating for theatrical performances will not be available.

Electronic Devices Cameras and recorders of any kind are not allowed. Cell phones must be silenced or turned off. No text messaging please, as it is distracting to your fellow audience members.

A Note to Parents Parents should exercise discretion in deciding which events are appropriate for their children. Regardless of age, everyone must have a ticket. Please, no babes-in-arms.

Accessibility ARTS NC STATE performances, exhibitions and classes are accessible to people of all abilities. Ample wheelchair seating is available in all theatres. Large print programs, recorded playbill notes and sign-language interpreters are available on request (please provide Ticket Central with two weeks notice to allow time for an ASL interpreter to prepare). The Thompson Hall theatres are equipped with an infrared assistive listening system. An on-site wheelchair, courtesy of Arts Access, is also available. With advance notice, we are eager to provide any other assistance needed.
