n i e l Sty f o e g A e th n e M Mad MID-CENTURY MODERN

South Shore Arts is traveling back in time to a more glamorous age with Mid-Century Modern: Style in the Age of Mad Men. The term “Mad Men,” while associated today with the AMC cable television drama created by Matthew Weiner, was actually a slang expression coined in the 1950s by advertisers working on Madison Avenue to refer to themselves. The South Shore Arts exhibition is a tribute to the MidCentury Modern movement in architecture and design that provided a visual accompaniment to this memorable era of slick consumerism and swinging style. Fifty years later, MidCentury Modern remains a historical milestone and a living ideal, reflected in today’s best furniture, architecture, art and design. This exhibition is being curated by David Carter, who, along with his wife Amy, are proprietors of Pegboard Modern, a Chicago-based showroom specializing in vintage modern furniture and design. Interestingly, the Carters reside in a Mid-Century Modern masterpiece in Munster, Indiana, the former home of long-time South Shore Arts supporters Sam and Renee Denmark, and, before them, Francie and Tom O’Neil, who built the John McPheresondesigned house in 1964.

Mid-Century Modern describes an era of architectural, interior, product, graphic design and style that began roughly in 1933 and continued into the mid-1960s. The term, employed as a descriptor as early as the mid-1950s, was reaffirmed in 1983 by Cara Greenberg in the title of her book Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s, a celebration of the style which is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement. An offshoot of design often associated with the casual furnishings and carefree look of Eichler tract homes in suburban California during the 1950s, Mid-Century Modern is associated with the mass-production of household objects, from furniture to clocks to lamps to radios, because many of its chief designers (Charles and Ray Eames foremost among them) made it a requirement that their work be affordable to the average homeowner rather than the wealthy elite. The United States, Britain, Japan, and Scandinavia were all centers for the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. In the U.S., Herman Miller produced plywood, fiberglass, and wire-mesh chairs of Charles and Ray Eames, as well as the famous Marshmallow sofas of George Nelson. Knoll made insect-like wire chairs for Harry Bertoia and cool, white-andred fiberglass and aluminum Tulip chairs for Eero Saarinen.

In England, Ernest Race produced handsome sideboards and economical folding deck chairs. Fellow Brit Robin Day worked with Hille Ltd. to create everything from convertible beds to tables and chairs. He is also credited with designing the first polypropylene stacking chair. Japanese designer and sculptor Isamu Noguchi, a giant of Mid-Century Modern, designed for both Knoll and Herman Miller. His three-piece wood and glass table from 1948 has been a mainstay of the Miller catalog for more than half a century. And then there were the Scandinavians. Børge Mogensen designed chairs of elegant simplicity that harmonized form with functionality, while his Sleigh Chair was as whimsical as its name suggests. Arne Jacobsen’s Swan chair held its users in a palm-like embrace. Finn Juhl took a more sculptural approach for his wood-frame seats— even a Juhl coffee table looks like a work of art. As for Hans Wegner, he made a chair that was so highly regarded it was used by Nixon and Kennedy in a 1960 presidential debate and has since become known simply as The Chair. Furniture was not the only product of note to come out of the Mid-Century Modern movement. For some reason, clocks, especially wall clocks, became a design force to be reckoned with. When George Nelson wasn’t designing furniture for Herman Miller, he was working with the

Howard Miller Clock Company on a series of marvelous modern wall clocks. He made clocks whose hands pointed to colored balls on the ends of slender shafts; clocks that resembled sunbursts, sunflowers, and asterisks; and even a clock that suggested a human eye! Nelson and Miller were also responsible for the Bubble lamps, which were made of steel and translucent plastic and were designed to hang from the ceilings of Mid-Century Modern homes, either as individual globes, ellipses, and cylinders or in clusters. Other lamps popular during this period and produced by a wide range of designers and manufacturers were the pole-tension lamps that lit up corners of living rooms and the “atomic” boomerang lamp shades designed for table lamps. Nothing escaped Mid-Century Modern, from transistor radios to lava lamps, which had yet to be associated with the psychedelic 1960s still a few years a way. It was perhaps the last time that design drove the look and feel of popular culture. Mid-Century Modern: Style in the Age of Mad Men will begin November 17, 2013, and continue through February 2, 2014. A V.I.P. reception and wine-tasting will be held on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, from 6-9pm. The exhibit is free and open to the public.


Salon Show Reaches Milestone 70th Year This fall, South Shore Arts is proud to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Salon Show, our annual juried exhibition, offering up to $10,000 in cash prizes. The exhibit opens on Sunday, September 15th, 2013, with a reception from 1-3pm. The awards presentation will begin promptly at 1:30pm. The Salon Show is a tradition that has defined South Shore Arts since its inception in 1936, when ten Hammond and Calumet City artists sponsored the first annual Art Exhibition of the Hammond District Art Association in the millinery department of the Minas Department Store in downtown Hammond. The exhibit came about when Hammond sign painter O.O. Haag and Edward C. Minas, Jr., met to discuss a sign to be painted on the side of the store. Their discussion led Mr. Minas to ask if an exhibit might be held there, just as Marshall Field and Company had housed the Hoosier Salon Exhibition in its State Street picture galleries, until discontinuing it a few years before. The invitation was enthusiastically accepted. Among the 28 artists who exhibited were Lenore Condé Lawson, Frank Myslive, architect/watercolorist William J. Bachman (later the architect for the Center for Visual and Performing Arts), Mr. Haag, art teacher Charles Untules and sculptor H. Laverne Thornton. In addition to Edward C. and Clarence Minas who furnished free space, prizes and other support, substantial credit goes to Mr. Haag, who, along with his wife Margaret, assembled and catalogued the exhibits for many years, furnishing housing for the judges and the labor necessary for the receipt and return of artwork. As recalled by Theresa Buzinski, an art patron from East Chicago, the Salon Show was the exhibit where one could go to view and buy original art created by some of the area’s finest artists. Mrs. Buzinski paid $30 for the piece accompanying this article, which she remembers purchasing when the exhibit was still held in the Minas hat department. The artist was B. Morris and the piece looks as pristine now as it did the year she purchased it. Since 1989, the Salon Show has been presented in the 5,000-square-foot gallery in the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. The first Helen V. Surovek Memorial Award was presented at the opening of the 46th Annual Salon Show in October of that year as the exhibit’s top prize. At $2,000, it has remained the Salon Show’s most generously funded award. Thanks to the generosity of Judy and Tom Surovek, the Denmark family and many other long-time contributors, the Salon Show has become one of the Midwest’s most prestigious visual arts competitions. This year’s juror is Paul Klein, a long-time art advocate. In 2006, the Chicago Society of Artists acknowledged his long-term contributions when he was selected as their 2006 Man of the Year. His desire to see artists empowered led him to create Klein Artist Works to demystify the art world, assist artists in navigating their own path and to make introductions that enable artists to succeed on their own terms.

Mr. Klein was the Managing Director of the Bridge Group, the premier Art Succession Planning Group in the country. For the past seven years, he has championed Chicago by writing and distributing ArtLetter, an online examination of art in Chicago. He previews exhibitions and encourages readers to broaden their horizons by embracing unexpected quality, new venues, dynamic artists and strong exhibitions. Mr. Klein was the art consultant/curator for the 2.3 million-square-foot expansion of McCormick Place West. It was his vision to use solely local artists at the new convention center. In recent years, he has become the “go-to guy” in the expanding Chicago art scene, advising artists and cultural institutions almost daily.

39th Annual Tri-County Junior-Senior High School Art Exhibit The awards for the 39th Annual Tri-County Junior/ Senior High School Art Exhibition were presented on Sunday, May 5, 2013. More than $6,000 in prize money was awarded including the prestigious $2,500 Donald H.

Trophies for the best overall school display in both the junior and senior high school categories were also presented. The winner of this year’s $2,500 Berwanger Scholarship Award was Nashelly Collazo from Portage High School in Portage, Indiana. Miss Collazo will use her scholarship at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. The winner of Best Overall Junior High School Presentation was Memorial Junior High School, Lansing, Illinois. The instructor is Janice Sausman. The winner of Best Overall Senior High School Presentation was Lake Central High School, where the instructors are Sandra Bushong, Christine Colle, Maureen Yaeger and Paul Volk. Over 25 junior and senior high schools participated this year. These schools represent Lake and Porter counties in Indiana and south suburban Cook County in Illinois. For the eighth consecutive year, Indiana University Northwest continued its commitment to the region’s youth by sponsoring this exhibit. South Shore Arts would like to thank Chancellor William J. Lowe and all of the generous donors who continue the tradition of supporting area art students and their teachers.

First Major League Baseball South Shore Poster Unveiled South Shore Poster Arts Management, a partnership between the Northwest Indiana Forum and South Shore Arts, unveiled the newest installment in the South Shore Poster Series with Pride of Northwest Indiana, featuring Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija, in May. The

poster was sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and was unveiled at Bank of America Day at Wrigley Field with Chicago Cubs owners, the Ricketts family, in attendance. Samardzija, who hails from Valparaiso, is depicted in action in front of the famed Wrigley Field score board. “For Jeff to be part of the series is phenomenal,” said poster artist Guy Wellman. “I am pleased to capture his love of baseball and Northwest Indiana’s pride in his accomplishment.” After being a state all-star in both football and baseball at Valparaiso High School, Samardzija played football and baseball for the University of Notre Dame. In 2007, he signed with the Chicago Cubs and earlier this year opened the Chicago Cubs 2013 season as starting pitcher. The South Shore poster is the culmination of many years work on the part of both Guy Wellman and Sam Samardzija, Jeff’s brother. Longtime friends, Wellman and Samardzija enlisted another friend, Derek Braggs, to be part of the poster program. Braggs, with his father Ken, from Merrill Lynch (Merrillville) and Dillon Dalton at Bank of America agreed to sponsor the poster featuring the baseball star. “The team of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Guy and Sam, along with their many contacts with the Cubs organization and Major League Baseball made this exciting addition to the collection possible,” said Karen Lauerman, Director of Marketing for the Forum. “This is a wonderful way to celebrate regional success stories and share the strength and beauty of Northwest Indiana.” Posters are available in 36” x 24” and 18” x 12” formats at the South Shore Arts Gift Shop, southshoreartsonline.org and other retail outlets.

South Shore Arts Announces 17th 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 begin its 17th consecutive year on Monday, September 9, 2013. This year, Art in Focus will examine the dual arts of photography and filmmaking. While photography began as early as the late 18th century, filmmaking followed in the late 1880s with the invention of the first movie camera. Through still photography and moving pictures, the camera captures moments, establishes mood, tells a story, makes us wonder, and helps us remember. Additionally, several lectures that coincide with current concerts and exhibits will be included in the series. Northwest Indiana Symphony Music Director Kirk Muspratt will provide insights into works on the Symphony’s 2013-14 concert season. In conjunction with the William Dawson folk art exhibit scheduled for the gallery next winter, renowned collector Susann Craig and South Shore Arts Executive Director

John Cain will discuss the meaning of intuitive and outsider art, living with this art and what it has been like to know and promote some of the artists who have made this very personal form of creative expression a major force in art. In addition to high quality documentaries by leading authorities, an integral part of every session is the time set aside for discussion. The goal of Art in Focus parallels that of the U.S. Department of Education, “Learning Never Ends.” Programs are led by Director of Education Linda Eyermann. Assisting in the planning of the program is Linda Dunn of the Munster Public Library. Art in Focus is presented on the second and fourth Monday mornings of the month at 10am at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts. There is no charge to participate. Adults of all ages who want to continue to increase their understanding and appreciation of art are welcome. Call 219/836.1839 for a brochure with this season’s complete schedule.

An Apple a Day On June 23, 2013, the third annual Family Arts Festival was held at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. Theatre at the Center presented three sold-out performances of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. South Shore Arts entertained over 600 children with two Snow White-themed art projects. The Symphony hosted a musical playground where children could try out a variety of instruments. Other activities included theater games, face-painting, food, performances by the Symphony Youth Orchestra and opening receptions for two art exhibits.

Celebrating the 20th with Pizazz! It was a special year, the 20th anniversary of the annual South Shore Arts Beaux Arts Ball. We celebrated with a sold-out crowd of over 450 people and net proceeds that exceeded $165,000! The Roaring ’20s was our theme, conjuring images of the Charleston and women with bobbed hair, raised hemlines and flattened chests. It was a time when gangsters were sweeter and had names like Spats and Mugsy. They concealed their weapons in violin cases. The ’20s were a time of snappy wisecracks, the bee’s knees and the cat’s pajamas. “Twenty years ago we had the auction and the dance floor and everything right here in the dining room,” Executive Director John Cain recalled. “And that first year, we didn’t even get access to the entire dining room until the afternoon of the ball because former Governor Orr was giving a speech in here at lunchtime.” Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to our Beaux Arts Ball Co-Chairs Nancy Trimboli, D.C., Sandi Kozlowski, Julie Mintz and Cherie Rippey, their fabulous committee, board and staff. Thanks and recognition also go to all of the community donors who supported the silent and live auctions. The theme brought out tons of creativity, with ladies dressed as flappers and men embracing the period with a

nod to mobsters out of Some Like it Hot. Board President Michael Luongo and board member Dan Nita (both in spats, fedoras and striped suits with carnations in their lapels) set the tone for the evening. The Ball is South Shore Arts’ primary fundraiser with proceeds benefitting our everykid art education programs for children, youth and families. The Ball’s success allows South Shore Arts to sustain and grow these programs in spite of budget cuts. For each of the past two years, the everykid program has served 28,000 children and youth in Northwest Indiana and south suburban Chicago! Major sponsors of the 20th Annual Beaux Art Ball were Diamond Sponsors ArcelorMittal, BP and the Morrow Family Foundation, plus event sponsors BMO Harris, Community Healthcare System, Geminus Prevention Services, Hammond Machine Works, Lexus of Merrillville, Majestic Star Casino and NIPSCO. Judith Mayer, owner of Keyword Design, provided the invitation and program design, and Tom Largus of Largus Printing donated the invitations. James & Sons donated the beautiful platinum and diamond heart-shaped pendant for our raffle. Mark your calendars for next year. The 21st Annual Beaux Arts Ball is scheduled for Friday, June 6, 2014.

Patron of the Year: Chris Morrow Every year since the first Beaux Arts Ball was held in 1994, South Shore Arts has honored a Patron of the Year. This year, as we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the ball, we also commemorated the fifth anniversary of South Shore Arts’ management of the Northwest Indiana Symphony. The South

Chris Morrow, Cindy & Dan Dernulc

Shore Arts and Symphony boards were recognized in October, 2012, by the Society of Innovators of Northwest Indiana for developing an innovative management and business model to sustain the Symphony. South Shore Arts has had operating control of the Symphony since 2008, allowing both organizations to share administrative, marketing and fundraising expenses, under the governance of the South Shore Arts board. This has enabled the Symphony and South Shore Arts to flourish, with lead funding provided by Sandy & Joe Morrow, among others. The person we honored at this year’s Beaux Arts Ball is the person who envisioned the management structure and possessed a passion to sustain the orchestra, a Northwest Indiana treasure that held its first performance on December 7, 1941. Symphony Board President Chris Morrow believed in South Shore Arts to the extent that he raised nearly $2 million to ensure the survival of the Symphony and to support South Shore Arts’ management of it. And it’s working! In the past year, subscription sales for the Symphony were up by 22%. We’re keeping the Symphony alive and, at the same time, creating economies that have helped to sustain South Shore Arts as well. Beyond merely ensuring the Symphony’s survival, we salute Chris for valuing the arts and the enhancement they make to our region’s quality of life.

That’s why Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is working with South Shore Arts for a strong, vibrant arts community. We’re pleased to be part of South Shore Arts.

State Arts Advocates Celebrate First Arts Funding Increase in Six Years With the close of its 2013 session, the Indiana General Assembly approved a two-year, $30 billion budget that included a $325,000 per year funding increase for the Indiana Arts Commission over the amount initially recommended in the Governor’s budget. After steady cuts each session since 2007-08, from $4,002,959 to $2,722,013 in the 2011-13 biennium, this was welcome news. “Arts advocates went into the 2013 session having endured budget cuts of more than 30 percent, looking at a proposed budget from the Governor’s office outlining an additional 3% reduction,” explained Jeff Kuehl, President of the Indiana Coalition for the Arts (INCA). “Lawmakers avoided the reduction and found additional funding for grants primarily designated for rural and underserved areas across the state. A reprioritization of

grant funding over recent years had created a gap in funding to communities without formal arts organizations. INCA felt that increased funding in these areas would make the most meaningful impact.” Throughout the session, citizens from across the state communicated to their legislators the importance that the arts have on their communities. Dozens of individuals participated in the 2013 Arts Day at the Statehouse and hand-delivered arts advocacy messages to all 150 state officials. INCA provided testimony on behalf of the arts that strengthened the case for the role of the arts in Indiana. The Indiana Coalition for the Arts is the statewide arts advocacy organization in Indiana. The mission of INCA is to assist in grassroots and direct lobbying to promote public funding, legislation and policy favorable to the arts.

National survey reports increase in number of arts-related jobs and businesses in Indiana The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) has announced that the number of arts-related jobs and businesses in the state of Indiana increased in 2011. According to the Creative Industries report released by Americans for the Arts (AFTA), as of January 2012, a total of 13,570 arts-related businesses were surveyed in Indiana, an increase of 2,166 from 2010, which had been the previous high water mark since the national advocacy group began the annual study in 2005. “It was encouraging to see an increase in arts-related businesses in 2010, and the continued growth in this area is a good signal our economy is well on the road to recovery,” said IAC Executive Director Lewis C. Ricci.

“Following on the significant increase in arts-related employers reported last year and this year, the news is even more encouraging for Indiana citizens working in, or looking for work in the arts and creative sector.” The number of Indiana citizens working for arts-related businesses also increased in 2011, halting a three-year decline in creative industries employment. The survey estimated 52,813 Indiana residents were employed in artsrelated jobs, an increase of 5,730 over the 2011 study. Artsrelated employment in Indiana peaked at 53,924 in 2007 before a steady decline from 2008 to 2010. “Indiana has positioned itself well for the economic recovery,” Ricci said. “Increasing the number of arts-related businesses and the number of citizens they employ will also benefit local and statewide economic and cultural tourism initiatives.” The creative industries surveyed represent arts-centric businesses which include for-profit businesses such as film, architecture, media and advertising agencies, as well as nonprofit organizations such as museums, symphonies and theaters. Nationally, there are 905,689 businesses involved in the creation or distribution of the arts. They employ 3.35 million people, representing 4.42% of all U.S. businesses and 2.15% of all employees, respectively. Based on data collected by Dun & Bradstreet, the study is conducted annually by Americans for the Arts to showcase the important role that the arts and arts-related businesses play in building and sustaining economic vibrancy.
