THE CENTER 2007-2017

This year we are honored to celebrate The Center’s tenth birthday. Serving as a dedicated campus that connects our creative community, The Center is committed to supporting excellent programming and nurturing a collaborative spirit. The vision of our founding leaders is still woven into our organizational fabric. Without steadfast support from the community, countless volunteers, and our Resident partners, The Center would not be the vibrant campus that it is today.

ANNUAL BENEFIT

CENTER PRESENTS

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band SOLD OUT - THANK YOU! HORS D’OEUVRES + HOSTED BEER & WINE | 6:30 PM CONCERT | 8:00 PM AFTER PARTY WITH DANCING + CASH BAR •

A singer, composer, and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans over three decades with 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel, and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Among his many accolades, including four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award and was named Texas State Musician.

Dawes

California-based roots rock band Dawes were formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills by brothers Taylor Goldsmith and Griffin Goldsmith (lead vocals / guitar and drums, respectively), Wylie Gerber (bass), and Alex Casnoff (guitar). They were previously in the band Simon Dawes, but after guitarist Blake

7/25 8PM $45-$55

Mills left the group, they changed the name (and added Casnoff, who was soon replaced by Tay Strathairn). Unlike the more intense indie-rock sound they had as Simon Dawes, Dawes is heavily influenced by the gentle acoustic-based musical trappings and rich vocal harmonies of the Laurel Canyon sound, and also by the shambling romanticized Americana of The Band.


CENTER PRESENTS

José González

Although his parents are Argentine, singer/songwriter José González was born in Sweden where he became nationally renowned for his mix of autumnal indie-pop and intimate acoustics. Following stints with hardcore bands during the 1990’s González formed the indie-rock outfit Junip along side organist Elias Araya and drummer Tobias Winterkorn; they released their first EP, “Straight Lines,” in 2000. González officially launched his solo career with the release of 2003’s Veneer, an entirely acoustic affair that reflected a childhood spent listening to equal parts bossa nova, classical, and post-punk by the likes of Joy Division. Touchstones for González’s sound include Nick Drake, Paul Simon, Red House Painters, and Elliott Smith, and the album featured a popular cover of the Knife’s “Heartbeats.”

CREATIVE INITIATIVES Creatives In Residence

Observatories WHEN: SUMMER 2017 PRESENTED BY: MATTHEW DAY JACKSON, CAMILLE OBERING, ANDY KINCAID LOCATION: THE CENTER PARK, THEATER LOBBY, AND GREATER JACKSON HOLE

Creatives in Residence – Matthew Day Jackson, Camille Obering and Andy Kincaid – present Observatories, an exhibition of sculpture, video and performance art activating The Center and greater Jackson Hole throughout summer 2017. Using the eclipse as a metaphor, the team aims to illuminate aspects of Jackson Hole as representative of “the last of the old west.” The constituent forms and images that create the illusion of the “West” often obfuscate that which they purport to represent. Observatories will offer viewers new ways of interpreting the past and present from which to consider the future of this GLENN KAINO “HOLLOW EARTH”

CREATIVE INITIATIVES Campus Exhibitions

Jack Holmer, Manifesto Against Gravity

Bland Hoke, The Fishbowl

WHEN: JUNE 16 – AUGUST 7 LOCATION: THE CENTER COURTYARD ARTIST TALK JUNE 15, 6-7

WHEN: SEPTEMBER 1 – APRIL 2018 RECEPTION FOR PALATES & PALETTES SEPTEMBER 8, 5-6:30PM LOCATION: THE CENTER COURTYARD

Manifesto Against Gravity is an installation that subjugates gravity and creates a dialogue with the concrete world. The exhibition will show six sculptures that feel the presence of the spectator and respond to it with subtle movements.

Bland Design LLC has crafted a simple but sophisticated response to this unique space. September in The Center Courtyard will present an inviting and iconic installation that celebrates The Courtyard for its architectural design the fishbowl. The Fishbowl completely transforms the curious space into an underwater wonderland with one gigantic and oversized goldfish. ARTIST RENDERING

Her current work uses simple forms derived from nature as a starting point, often exploiting radically different scale from the microscopic to the monumental.
