Cellist Joshua Roman has been dubbed “a cellist of extraordinary technical and musical gifts” by the San Francisco Chronicle

Haas unleashes deep, powerful fiddle tunes, and Fraser responds with daring interpretations of traditional Scottish songs.

Written in 1937, this satirical glimpse into “Steeltown, USA” offers a biting critique of corruption, commerce, and humanity’s value in the face of unchecked capitalism.

These three cellists and a percussionist applauded for their “thunderous tone” and “take no prisoner” approach to cello playing.

A last look at the largest mural in the room before it is taken down

The panels of the Paul Bunyon mural are propped against the wall waiting to be protected with a special inert wrapping. When the murals return they will be in the same place and order--the only difference is that they will be reinstalled in a way that is less damaging to the works.

Packing Up and Preserving Memorial Union History We wanted to check in and see what was going on with the Memorial Union renovation and found this short blog post from July 2012 discussing the packing and preserving of the historic pieces in the Memorial Union: “The first phase of the Memorial Union Reinvestment is officially underway, and we have been

Needless to say, we’ve been busy here at Memorial Union.”

“The arts mean business in Dane County. The Arts & Economic Prosperity IV study shows that the nonprofit arts and culture are a significant industry in Dane County—one that generates $145.5 million in total economic activity. This spending—$69.2 million by nonprofit arts and culture organizations and an additional $76.3 million in event-related spending by their audiences— supports 5,119 full-time equivalent jobs, generates $97.3 million in household income to local residents, and delivers $13.8 million in local and state government revenue.

“America‘s artists and arts organizations live and work in every community from coast-to-coast— fueling creativity, beautifying our cities, and improving our quality of life...” –Robert Lynch

President and CEO of Americans for the Arts

20

Footnotes

“America‘s artists and arts organizations live and work in every community from coastto-coast—fueling creativity, beautifying our cities, and improving our quality of life. In my travels across the country, business and government leaders often talk to me about the challenges of funding the arts amid shrinking resources and alongside other pressing needs. They worry about jobs and the economy. Is their region a magnet for attracting and retaining a skilled and innovative workforce? How well are they competing in the high-stakes race to attract new businesses?” Lynch said. Lynch continues, “Arts and culture organizations are resilient and entrepreneurial businesses. They employ people locally, purchase goods and services from within


the community, and market and promote their regions. Arts organizations are rooted locally; these are jobs that cannot be shipped overseas. Like most industries, the Great Recession left a measurable financial impact on the arts—erasing the gains made during the pre-recession years, and leaving 2010 expenditures three

percent behind their 2005 levels... Yet, even in a down economy, some communities saw an increase in their arts spending and employment. As the economy rebounds, the arts are well poised for growth. They are already producing new and exciting work— performances and exhibitions and festivals that entertain, inspire, and attract audiences.”* Mr. Lynch concludes that, “The findings from the Arts & Economic Prosperity IV study send a clear and welcome message: leaders who care about community and economic vitality can feel good about choosing to invest in the arts.” *Excerpts from the introduction of the Arts & Economic Prosperity IV report by Robert L. Lynch, President and CEO, Americans for the Arts.
