The Story of Negro League Baseball, Original Paintings by Kadir Nelson

“ We are the ship; all else the sea.” —Rube Foster, founder of the Negro National League

Jackie Robinson, 2006, Oil on canvas, Collection of Jackie Robinson Foundation

South Shore Arts is proud to present WE ARE THE SHIP: The Story of Negro League Baseball, featuring original paintings by Kadir Nelson, September 26 through December 19, 2010. Award-winning artist and author Kadir Nelson spent seven years researching, writing and creating handsome paintings to be included in the brilliantly illustrated book, WE ARE THE SHIP: The Story of Negro League Baseball, which is dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Negro Baseball Leagues. During the process of creating Safe at Home, 2005, Oil on canvas, Collection of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

the book, Nelson interviewed former Negro League players, traveled to museums around the country, poured over old photographs, firsthand testimonies and documentaries, collected baseball memorabilia, sports equipment and uniforms, then posed and photographed himself in them, all with the intention of putting himself in the shoes of a former Negro Leaguer to recreate an authentic depiction of life in the Negro Baseball Leagues. WE ARE THE SHIP: The Story of Negro League Baseball, was a New York Times best-seller and the New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2008. The book also received a Coretta Scott King Author Award, an Illustration Honor and the Robert F. Sibert Medal from the American Library Association. The exhibition is the story of Negro League baseball— the story of gifted athletes and determined owners; of racial discrimination and international sportsmanship; of fortunes won and lost; of triumphs and defeats on and off the field. It is a perfect mirror for the social and political history of black America in the first half of the twentieth century. But most of all, the story of the Negro Leagues is about hundreds of unsung heroes who overcame segregation, hatred, terrible conditions, and low pay to do the one thing they loved more than anything else in the world: play ball. Kadir Nelson tells the story of Negro League baseball from its beginnings in the 1920s through its decline after Jackie Robinson crossed over to the majors in 1947. In just a few years, the Negro National League grew into the third largest African-American owned business in the world, behind Madame C.J. Walker’s beauty products line and African-American Life Insurance. It reached its apex in the mid-1940s with its crown jewel, the East-West All-Star Classic that was held every summer at Chicago’s Comiskey Park. The event became a high-class social affair that attracted sellout crowds and celebrities like Joe Louis and Lena Horne. The South Shore Arts showing at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster is part of a national tour spanning two and a half years. The exhibit includes approximately 33 paintings and 13 sketches from the book, WE ARE THE SHIP: The Story of Negro League Baseball by Kadir Nelson. What makes this exhibition so outstanding are the dozens of oil paintings, breathtaking in their perspectives, rich in emotion, and created with understanding and affection for these lost heroes of our national game. The tour was developed and managed by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services, an exhibition tour development company in Kansas City, Missouri.

education Celebrating the Skin We Live In! The Skin You Live In is the second in a series of literacybased art programs developed by South Shore Arts. In 2010, nearly 4,000 second-grade students made self-portraits in the style of the book’s illustrations by David Lee Csicsko. David, a Hammond native, and author Michael Tyler produced the book for the Chicago Children’s Museum in 2005. The book uses jaunty verse with cleaver word choices to describe the many colors of skin. With acceptance as its prevailing theme, the book celebrates uniqueness and acknowledges similarities. A South Shore Arts artist/instructor visited classrooms with all the supplies necessary to complete the project. A copy of the book was given to each teacher for the classroom library and read to the students prior to the art class. Teachers were able to expand the lesson into their Language Arts curriculum. “My class enjoyed the story and the art project. Following the lesson, the children wrote in their journals about what they do in the skin they live in,” said second grade teacher Ann Longacre from Fieler School in Merrillville.

everykid fundraiser! Vanis Salon is inviting you to get a new style for $20 and receive a gift certficate for $20 in return. This event is at their Crown Point Salon October 20, 3-9pm. 100% of the proceeds go to South Shore Arts everykid program. We want to thank Vanis Salon for holding this fundraiser to support arts education. We hope you attend! Call to schedule 219-663-5200.

Although students used a Csicsko-style face, each portrait looked amazingly like the child who created the art. Students took seriously the task of choosing paper to match their own skin tone and cutting out hair that resembled theirs in color, length and style. Extra embellishments such as jewelry, bows and glasses completed the look. The Legacy Foundation and many other private donors to the everykid program helped to launch the program in Gary, Lake Station, Merrillville, East Chicago and Hammond. During the 2010-2011 school year, the program will expand to Portage and Valparaiso with funding from the Porter County Community Foundation. The Foundations of East Chicago will provide funding for programs in East Chicago. The first South Shore Arts literacy-based program, Polar Express, was also conducted in Gary, Hammond, Merrillville, Lake Station and East Chicago. Thanks to funding from the Porter County Community Foundation, the program debuted this year in Portage. In fall 2010, South Shore Arts will pilot a new third grade program called Michael Recycle. This litter/literacy-based art program will use recycled materials to create a litterbug based on the book Michael Recycle written by Ellie Bethel and illustrated by Alexandra Colombo. Each of these projects meets Indiana State Standards. Every kid should know how special he or she is in the skin they live in.: Like flowers in the fields that make wonderful views, When we stand side-by-side in our wonderful hues . . . We all make a beauty, so wonderfully true. We are special and different and just the same too.

South Shore Arts Announces 14th Year of Art in Focus Founded by Rita M. Ray Art in Focus, South Shore Arts’ free art appreciation program founded by Rita M. Ray in 1997, will celebrate its fourteenth consecutive year in Munster. This year’s Art in Focus Program will study Modern Art: the Art of the 20th Century. Art from this period can be difficult to understand and, as a result, is sometimes underappreciated and often criticized. Shock of The New, a documentary series written and presented by art critic Robert Hughes, highlights works, artists, movements, and motivations of this conflicted period in art history. Along with the series, several films on specific 20th Century artists will be viewed and discussed. Throughout the season, guest artists will give lectures on their current exhibits in the Atrium gallery. This promises to be a year of great discussion and greater appreciation for Modern Art! In addition to high quality documentaries by leading authorities, an integral part of every session continues to be the time set aside for participants to express ideas and ask questions that broaden their views on art. The goal of Art in Focus parallels that of the U.S. Department of Education, “Learning Never Ends.” Programs are led by South Shore Arts Director of Education Linda Eyermann. Assisting Linda in the planning of the year program is Linda Dunn of the Munster Public Library. Art in Focus is presented twice monthly on the second and fourth Monday mornings at 10 a.m. at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts. There are no membership dues or program fees to participate. Adults of all ages who want to continue to increase their understanding and appreciation of art and its history are welcome.

2010 Beaux Arts Ball nets $163,000!

Patron of the Year

The 17th Annual Beaux Arts Ball, “Through the Looking Glass,” was held June 4, 2010, at The Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. Held every year on the first Friday of June, the Ball is South Shore Arts’ primary fundraising event and benefits the everykid program, which last year served over 20,000 children, youth and families in Northwest Indiana and south suburban Chicago. Over 400 attendees came out this year to support arts education, an essential component in developing critical thinking skills, but one that has been cut drastically in schools across the country due to budget reductions. The annual success of the Ball allows South Shore Arts to continue and grow these outreach programs for children. Speaking of success, the 2010 Beaux Arts Ball netted $163,000! Beaux Arts Co-chairs Pat Colander, Karen Maravilla, and Seda TuranYahne, along with a dynamic committee, board and staff, are to be recognized and congratulated for a job well done. The decorations committee led by Jackie Wickland had lots of fun with the “Through the Looking Glass” theme. Hand-made towers of cockeyed teacups topped with a fresh flower and hanging caterpillars adorned the tables along with toadstools with gnome-like faces. Seda Turan-Yahne and Design Studio 303 created a special “Through the Looking Glass” entry into the gallery for cocktails. Each guest was treated to a custom-made chocolate toadstool as a favor donated by Gayety’s Chocolates. Nine-year-old Audrey Beck delighted the crowd as “Alice” asking guests if they had “seen the white rabbit?” Dancing continued until midnight and all was good in “Wonderland!” Major sponsors of the 17th Annual Beaux Arts Ball were Presenting Sponsor NIPSCO, Diamond Sponsor Geminus Prevention Services, Inc. and event sponsors ArcelorMittal, Community Healthcare System, Harris, Lexus of Merrillville, Majestic Star Casinos & Hotel, the Chris & Dede Morrow Fund of the Legacy Foundation and Dr. John and Nancy Gustaitis. James and Sons donated beautiful diamond and blue sapphire pave earrings as the raffle prize for the evening. Judith Mayer, owner of Keyword Design, provided the invitation and program design, and Tom Largus of Largus Printing donated the invitations. The special effects of the invitation were the talk of the town! Additional thanks go to Joanne & Rick Svetanoff, Precision Control Systems, Jenny & Dr. Bruce Yalowitz, Irene & Scott King, Donna & Bruce Quint, Marcia & Will Glaros, Drs. Amy and Dennis Han, Dr. Peter Mavrelis, Alex Gardner Riddle, Strack & Van Til and Markey’s Audio-Visual for help in underwriting the staff table, cocktail hour, decorations, wine, dessert, music, programs, and audiovisual.

Executive Director John Cain presented the Patron of the Year Award to long time South Shore Arts supporters Liz and Chris Valavanis and Vanis Salon & Day Spa. Liz and Chris are both past board presidents who became actively involved with the organization in the mid-1990s. Chris served as president during the capacity-building period that led to South Shore Arts becoming a Regional arts Partner of the Indiana Arts Commission. Also, during Chris’s presidency, South Shore Arts opened its branch locations in Hammond at Substation No. 9 and Crown Point. Liz served as president more recently, presiding during the time that the South Shore Arts board deliberated on and then entered into a management agreement with the Northwest Indiana Symphony. The service that Liz and Chris have brought both personally and professionally has been the full Monte, so to speak—time, dollars, advocacy, recruitment and leadership. South Shore Arts is grateful to have such good friends! “The entire Vanis staff was thrilled and honored to receive the Patron of the Arts Award,” says Chris Valavanis. “It has been our pleasure to play even a small part, these past 12 years in the growth of this vital and important regional arts organization. The Arts reflect the richness of diversity that we enjoy in our region. I can only hope that this recognition of Vanis Salon will inspire many other small companies to get involved and have an impact.”   “We were honored and humbled to be in the company of such distinguished past recipients of the award,” adds Liz. “The arts have always been a part of our lives, and our involvement with South Shore Arts has been a wonderful way to be a part of what I believe is essential for the growth of our community.”
