Where The Wild Things Are, the beloved 1963 children’s book illustrated and written by Maurice Sendak, will inspire a two-part exhibit series at South Shore Arts from November 2019 through April 2020. Exploring both adult and childlike perceptions of life and worlds created outside of reality, Wild Things will be comprised of Things That Go Bump in the Night, the first part of the series featuring the nightmarish subject matter and mysterious creatures from the imaginations of several ghoulish artists, and Maurice Sendak: The Memorial Exhibition, the second part of the series, commemorating the beloved illustrator and author, who became famous for his children’s book about a boy’s very amusing imagination.

Where The Wild Things Are follows young Max, who has been sent to his room with no dinner after creating a ruckus. Max’s bedroom is magically transformed into a different world where he “sails off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are.” In this world, Max encounters a group of frightening creatures whom he befriends, and they, in turn, make him king of the monsters. After some time, Max decides he's ready to sail home where he returns to his bedroom with dinner waiting for him. Like Max, the artists of Things That Go Bump in the Night escape the everyday, manifesting a world conjured by their own minds and brought to life on paper and canvas or sculpted into dimensionality. Their work represents the “wild side” of each artist, sometimes born of chaos, sometimes the stuff of dreams, and often a response to problems encountered in daily life, each issue dealt with through the artist’s personal intuition. While Where the Wild Things Are explores an irrational, child-like perception of life, a world created entirely by a child's imagination, Things That Go Bump in the Night explores adult perceptions of imaginary places and beings, an almost surrealist methodology but focusing on actuality and unavoidable real life problems and disappointments. James Deeb, one artist featured in the exhibit, paints dark, oily subjects and says his work “tells a story of struggle and loss, but also of perseverance and quiet strength. No matter how fantastical some my images appear to be, they all refer to the trials of everyday existence with as much pathos and empathy as I can muster.” He refers to his work as “darkly humorous and melancholy in roughly equal measures.”

Other artists included in Things That Go Bump in the Night include David DeCesaris, Gina Lee Robins, Joyce Polance, Corey Crum, Krista Varsburg, Randy Buvala, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, Billy Pozzo and Justin Henry Miller. Curated by South Shore Arts Director of Exhibitions Bridget Covert, Things That Go Bump in the Night will run November 19, 2019, through February 2, 2020, with an artist reception on Friday, November 22 from 6-9pm at the Center for Visual & Performing Arts. Performance artist Joe Rauen, a self-described “builder and performer of experimental musical objects,” will be on hand to entertain at the opening reception. Rauen is one of eight Northwest Indiana artists who are currently receiving career development assistance from the Indiana Arts Commission through its Individual Advancement Program. Maurice Sendak: The Memorial Exhibition will not only celebrate Sendak and his book but will also be an opportunity for children to explore their own creativity. This light-hearted, interactive and child-friendly exhibit will include readings, projects and many photo opportunities along with 50 of Sendak's illustrations. Born to Polish Jewish immigrants in Brooklyn, New York, in 1928, Sendak's love for illustration and writing were first inspired by Disney’s Fantasia, which he saw at the age of 12. In addition to Where the Wild Things Are, Sendak also wrote In the Night Kitchen and Outside Over There. He illustrated many other books, including the Little Bear series. Maurice Sendak: The Memorial Exhibition will run February 14 through April 12, 2020, with events that will be fun for the whole family. The exhibit will be free to children and students under 18. Teachers can arrange a free docent-led tour of the exhibit by calling 219/836-1839, ext. 108.

Thank You, WANISS! The Women’s Association of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Society (WANISS) held their Annual Meeting at Innsbrook Country Club on June 20, 2019. At the meeting new officers were installed: Vice-President Membership Jeanette Giragos, Vice-President Marketing Mary K. Stark, Vice-President Education Anne-Marie Kuczora, and Treasurer Joy Black. Four new board members were added: Susan Arnold, Kathy Fesenmyer, Constance Neal, and Belinda Potoma. Board president Marti Ross presented a check for $15,000 to John Cain for the Symphony on behalf of WANISS, bringing the total WANISS donation to the Symphony to $33,000 for the 2019 fiscal year. Funds were generated by WANISS’ two major fundraising events, the annual Festival of Trees and the annual May Wine Brunch. Organized in Gary in 1962, the Women’s Association was launched as a support group that provided receptions after concerts, fashion shows and other fundraisers, held meetings with musical programs and even conducted the first season subscription ticket campaign. Beyond funding, WANISS members provide the Symphony with other important forms of support, including volunteering for music education programs, ushering at concerts, providing refreshments for musicians, organizing the popular Cookies with Kirk receptions after classical

concerts, and awarding the annual Edith Root Scholarships to members of the Symphony’s Youth Orchestra, enabling them to attend summer music camps. Membership is open to all interested women throughout Northwest Indiana and beyond. Membership dues for 2019-20 are $30 per person.

Christmas nostalgia will be the theme of this year’s holiday reading, when John Cain and Jim West return for a jolly dual performance on Tuesday, November 19, 2019! As boys, John and Jim looked forward to “The Lawrence Welk Show” every week. Snug in their jammies, one in Gary next to his chain-smoking grandma, the other in Pittsburgh next to his tea-sipping grandma, each knew that everything was right with America, it was Christmas all year long. Bobby and Cissy dance their way into our hearts, accordionist Myron Floren amazes, and “Champagne Lady” Norma Zimmer flashes her pearly white teeth, her hair sprayed firmly in place, in The Music of Your Life, John Rowell’s depiction of a simpler time, brought to you by Geritol! Dorothy Draper was an icon of stylish living, who revealed her secrets on how to be a popular hostess in her 1941 best-seller, Entertaining Is Fun. Draper waxes enthusiastic on her favorite holiday traditions, fondly remembering the old family retainers who carried them out for her (“Old Hunt” the butler, Annie the “old waitress,” and “Our one-eyed laundress, ‘Old Mrs. Smith,’ who made the plum puddings.” (Draper’s traditions were old, but the help was even older!) From the December 1954 Atlantic magazine, William L. Copithorne skewers “the campy humor and covert bragging of the family Christmas letter,” and New Yorker cartoonist David Sipress shares the confusion he felt as a child over his Upper West Side Reform Jewish family’s celebration of both Hanukkah and Christmas in A Nineteen-Fifties Jewish-American Christmas Story. Invitations go out in late September or feel free to phone in your reservations today! Call Kelly at 219/836-1839, ext. 103. Reservations close November 12.

It was “One Small Step for You, One Giant Leap for the Arts,” the 26th Annual Beaux Arts Ball, celebrated on Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Center for Visual & Performing Arts. Continuing our theme, it was a BLAST and a huge success, exceeding budget, netting just over $185,000 in support of arts education. Congratulations and special thanks to our wonderful Beaux Arts Ball Co-Chairs, Carly Brandenburg, Dr. Gus Galante, Amy Koufos and Irene Smith-King, along with our generous and engaged attendees, board members, committee, community and staff for making it an “out of this world” experience.

Peter & Debbie Nau

The Beaux Arts Ball is South Shore Arts’ primary fundraiser with proceeds benefitting our everykid art education programs. The success of the Ball allows South Shore Arts to provide yearly programs for little or no cost to thousands of children, youth and families in Northwest Indiana and south suburban Chicago.. Executive Director John Cain presented a Patron of the Year Award to Debbie and Peter Nau and Hammond Machine Works, Inc., for the Nau family’s many decades of support towards building and sustaining a vibrant arts community in Northwest Indiana. An Arts Partner of the Year Award was presented to Lakeshore Public Media for the station's long-standing commitment to arts promotion in our region through “Eye on the Arts.” The evening’s musical entertainment, The unPROFESSIONALS, featured two of our very own board members, Jeremy Willett and Gus Galante, and had the crowd on its feet dancing until midnight. Centerpieces consisting of beautiful moon globes that cast changing colors of light were mesmerizing, and every single one of them sold. Speaking of decorations, we have to thank our retiring Gift Shop Manager,

Meet Our Staff! Mara Clark was recently hired as the new manager of the South Arts Gift Shop. Mara graduated with a BS in Hospitality Management from Roosevelt University in Chicago. Her background is in sales, retail and merchandising, and she has worked for independent stores throughout her career. Mara sees the South Shore Arts Gift Shop as a perfect fit for supporting local and small business. For the past dozen years, Mara has worked as an Independent Manufacturer Representative for L.M. Marketing and Sales in Chicago, where she honed her sales skills on the wholesale side, developing a large network and long-term relationships with trade show participants and clients, including gift shops, hospital shops, museums, tourist centers, boutiques and schools. She participated in all aspects of trade shows from set up to break down and everything in between, implementing and maintaining rack programs, merchandiser and plan-o-grams. As Gift Shop Manager, Mara will be responsible for everything from selecting and displaying inventory, to inviting artists to sell their work on consignment, to updating and maintaining South Shore Poster information on the website. Mara succeeds Jackie Wickland who served as Gift Shop Manager for 16 years. Managerial Accountant William Schultz has worked as a professional accountant for 40 years. He joined the South Shore Arts staff last fall after 20 years with the now shuttered Montgomery Ward retail store, starting his career a few blocks away as a management trainee at the Munster store. From there he was transferred to the corporate headquarters in Chicago, holding progressing positions in accounting, auditing and financial analysis. After the company’s closure in 2001, Bill worked for several interior design, architecture and IT companies in Chicago, becoming an expert in small company professional services accounting. In these capacities, he developed a knack for simplifying “left brain” accounting for “right brain” artistic management, working with several talented high-profile artistic individuals. Bill grew up in Whiting and attended Purdue University Calumet, attaining his BS in Industrial Management/Accounting. He met his wife Terrie at Montgomery Ward, and they reside in Munster with their two cats, numerous tropical fish, backyard squirrels, rabbits, birds and an occasional deer. Bill spends his free time at Centennial Park golf course and Fitness Pointe health club. Bill and Terrie enjoy summer festivals throughout the region and listening to the occasional Oldies band. Bill has been a patron of the Northwest Indiana Symphony over the years, attending concerts at the Star Plaza and other venues, as well as summer concerts. When he heard that his current position had become available, he made the decision to eliminate his daily three-hour round trip commute and devote his energy to local organizations that he already supported and respected. Bill’s overall responsibilities include providing financial reports and information on the 20 cost centers that comprise the activities of two nonprofit organizations, enabling the directors to make strategic decisions and focus on operations, programming and fundraising.
