Urban Legends A Two-part Exhibit Series Showcases Artists Bringing New Life to Old Places

Urban Legends is a two-part series of exhibits that showcase artists whose work is sparking new life in old places. The exhibits will be presented at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts over a six-month period beginning this fall and in multiple venues in Gary next spring. Lead underwriting for the series has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Legacy Foundation and Peoples Bank. Urban blight and the subsequent need for regeneration are not unique to Lake County communities, which are increasingly taking cues from similar sites across America, where art and artists have been utilized as means to stimulate new life. By documenting the public artwork that Northwest Indiana artists have executed throughout our sprawling metropolitan region and elsewhere, viewers will better understand how this artwork is being used to create new environments. The images that photographers have captured among urban ruins, including Gary’s City Methodist Church, will shed light on the exciting possibilities that lie ahead for redeveloping seemingly barren places. Older cities often suffer from abandonment. Concerning this issue, public art projects are seen as a good strategy for regeneration. Public art can create a sense of identity or place, address community needs, tackle social exclusion, possess educational value, promote social change, and encourage economic development. Artists young and old in urban settings are creating artistic opportunities in areas where art can make a significant contribution to urban reuse and renewal. These exhibits will explore, document and promote the work being done as it transforms what has been into what can be.

By viewing the exhibits that comprise the Urban Legends series, it is hoped that the general public will gain an increased awareness and understanding of how public art by local artists is improving communities, transforming blighted areas and specific sites into oases of rebirth for people to use and enjoy. Similarly, artists and community leaders will be provided with encouragement to further utilize art and culture in innovative ways. Indy Windy: A Love Story, running November 13, 2018 through January 29, 2019, will feature artists from Indiana and Chicago who execute large public artworks to create new environments in aging urban and manufacturing areas, while also documenting their experiences and creating new work in their private studios. The exhibit will be curated by Ish Muhammad, a self-taught artist from Indiana who maintains a studio at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago’s Bridgeport community on the south side. The exhibit will present an overview of ceative activity currently underway by a community of Midwest artists, some of whom have been working together for nearly 30 years. Muhammad states, “The inspiration for the exhibition is tied to the hustle of being an artist in Northwest Indiana and the relationships built along the way. What started out with artists building professional networks has evolved into true friendships with wedding invitations, graduations, and rent parties. Each has served as mentors, mentees, participated in exhibitions, organized events and collaborated with each other. This exhibit presents artists who respect each other and sincerely desire success for their peers.” Indy Windy: A Love Story will capture the relationship that Northwest Indiana artists maintain with the creative community in Chicago. Informational didactics will help viewers understand the diversity throughout this sprawling metropolitan region and how the artwork is being used to create new environments. The exhibit will showcase a dozen artists, along with two crews and a collective. Among the

artworks on display will be selections from Still Crazy: 30 yrs. of Crazy Indiana Style Artists, an exhibition of artifacts and paintings, covering the history of Indiana’s first Latino artist collective, from the Indiana State Museum. Although Indy Windy: A Love Story will include the grit of the graffiti writing movement, it is not intended to be a graffiti-only show, nor will it be a response to whether graffiti is art or vandalism. The exhibit will include the polished work of veteran muralists, fine artists, sculptors, and woodworkers in an environment where the viewer can experience the excitement of urban communities and make connections to the creative energy embodied by the artists’ work. Artists featured in Indy Windy: A Love Story include Ruben Aguirre, members of the Crazy IN-Style Artists

(CISA) Crew, FAB Crew, graffiti writer Mario “ZORE” Gonzalez, self-taught artist Tyrue “Slang” Jones, Emmet Kerrigan, Felix Maldonado, Liz Mares, Ish Muhammad, Brian Presnell, Tom Torluemke, members of the artist collective The Unwonted, former steel worker Roman Villareal, and Chicago-based street artist ZorZorZor. A Friendsgiving Party and Artist Reception will be held on November 16, 2018, 6-9pm. The second half of the series, Urban Ruins: Haunts, will run February 8 through April 21, 2019, with an Artist Reception on Sunday, March 3, 2019, from 1-3pm. Curated by John Cain, this exhibit will feature the work of guerilla photographers who have been lured to Gary and other cities to capture the haunting beauty of architectural ruins on the verge of being repurposed as gardens and other public spaces. An exhibit catalogue, which will document the work of artists featured in both shows, will be more than just a record of the work on display. It will also serve as a primer on public art of the Calumet Region. Urban Legends is the third exhibit collaboration presented by South Shore Arts and the Calumet Heritage Partnership, a diverse, bi-state partnership of environmental, cultural and historical organizations, individuals and other entities committed to celebrating, preserving and protecting the unique heritage of the Calumet region of Illinois and Indiana.

Thank You, WANISS! The Women’s Association of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Society (WANISS) held its Annual Meeting at Innsbrook Country Club on June 21, 2018. The meeting included the installation of new officers—President Marti Ross, VP Administration Linda Bartochowski, VP Development Cindy Ault, Recording Secretary Anna Rominger, Corresponding Secretary Marie Russo, and VP Marketing Mary K. Stark—as well as new board members Judith Popp, Barb Swanson, and Charlene Tsoutsouris. John Cain, Executive Director of South Shore Arts and the Symphony, and Kirk Muspratt, Music Director/ Conductor, each spoke about plans for the Symphony’s new venues and programs for the 2018-19 season. Both stressed the need for all patrons to “Follow the Music” as the Symphony moves forward. The Women’s Association presented the Symphony with a check in the amount of $10,641.71, bringing the total contribution from WANISS to $30,000 for the year! These funds were raised primarily from the annual Festival of Trees and 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. The WANISS Salon brunches give attendees a more intimate appreciation for individual instruments and members of the orchestra. Membership is open to all interested women throughout Northwest Indiana and beyond. Membership dues for 201819 are $30 per person.

The 25th anniversary of South Shore Arts’ Annual Beaux Arts Ball was celebrated on Friday, June 1, 2018, at the Center for Visual & Performing Arts. The Ball was once again a huge success, a fun-filled evening that netted $174,000 in support of arts education! Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to our generous and engaged attendees, board members, committee, community and staff for helping to make it all happen. Special thanks to our

wonderful Beaux Arts Ball Co-Chairs Carly Brandenburg, Dr. Gus Galante, Amy Koufos and Irene Smith-King. 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 these programs for little to no cost to literally thousands of children, youth and families in Northwest Indiana and south suburban Chicago every year. Executive Director John Cain presented Carolyn Saxton, President of the Legacy Foundation, with the Patron of the Year Award. This year marked the Legacy Foundation’s 25th Anniversary as Lake County’s Community Foundation, and South Shore Arts has long been a nonprofit partner of the Foundation, helping us to establish and grow over $1,000,000 in endowment funds in support of the Salon Show, the Tri-County School shows and many other important South Shore Arts programs. Once again we used a mobile bidding platform, and the Silent Auction was one of our best ever! Artist Bojitt
