Third Outstanding Midwest Artist Series to Feature Sculptor Margaret Wharton South Shore Arts is pleased to present the third in its Outstanding Midwest Artist Series, this time featuring renowned sculptor Margaret Wharton. Some Assembly Required: A Margaret Wharton Retrospective will run February 14 through April 25, 2010, with a reception for the artist on Sunday, March 7, 2010, from 1 to 3pm. As Sue Taylor wrote in Art in America about Wharton’s 1995 exhibit at the Evanston Art Center,

“Margaret Wharton’s work focuses on the manipulation of objects such as chairs or books and their subsequent transformation into witty and critical works of art. Recent sculptures configured from chairs have an anthropomorphic quality. While objects/figures are suggested in the final works of art, the original object from which the piece was created is always apparent in an often-ironic way. Precise craftsmanship and attention to detail continues to be integral to her artistic process. “Adept at deconstructing all these things and more, Wharton makes objects of ingenious formal invention and spirited, subversive humor.” Margaret Wharton is a Chicago-based artist who received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1975. She was a founding member of Artemisia Gallery, a cooperative for women artists, in 1972. In addition to the Evanston Art Center, she has had solo exhibits at the Jean Albano Gallery in Chicago, where she has been represented since the mid-1990s, at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California, the Rockford College Art Gallery in Rockford, Illinois, Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, the Zolla-Lieberman Gallery in Chicago, the Phyllis Kind Gallery, Chicago and New York, and the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina. Ms. Wharton was the subject of a one-woman show at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art curated by Mary Jane Jacob in 1981, which subsequently traveled to 4

the Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin, Texas, and the University of South Florida Art Galleries in Tampa. Nearly 30 years after that exhibit, Ms. Jacob will write the essay for the South Shore Arts exhibit catalogue. Commenting on the artist’s work in 1981, she wrote,

“In her process of disassembly and reconstruction, as in an assemblage technique, Wharton alters a found object with a previous life and brings it into an art context. But unlike most assemblage constructions, Wharton’s art is not the joining together of disparate elements, but the restructuring of parts form a single source. “Wharton’s sculptures carry with them the history of their past life . . . [she] retains not only the memory of the previous specific existence, but also infuses a sense of past reaching beyond the life of the particular object.” Examples of Wharton’s work are included in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Dallas Museum, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Seattle Art Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. South Shore Arts premiered the Outstanding Midwest Artist Series in 2007 with Call of the Wild: Paintings by Michael Noland and presented the second in the series a year later with Excellent Hostess: Selected Paintings by Lorraine Peltz. In addition to expanding its reach as an exhibition venue, South Shore Arts’ objectives in creating the series include exploring the creative roots of contemporary visual artists; introducing seminal exhibitions to the public; strengthening the relationship among artists and their audiences in the Midwest; and documenting each of these exhibitions through the publication of accompanying catalogues. The exhibit has been curated by John Cain.

Taking Our Show on the Road with The Skin You Live In! As more schools face fieldtrip restrictions, students are losing opportunities for the cultural enrichment that an outof-school experience can provide. Working to fill that gap, South Shore Arts is developing new literacy-based programs that can be taken directly into the classroom. The first program, based on Chris Van Allsburg’s beautifully written and illustrated book, The Polar Express, served nearly 5,000 students in the Hammond, East Chicago, Gary, Lake Station, Merrillville, and Portage school systems during November and January of 2009. The program was funded with individual, corporate and foundations support of the South Shore Arts everykid program, all matched dollar-for-dollar by an anonymous donor. Additional funding was provided by the Porter County Community Foundation to support the program in Portage and by Mayor Thomas McDermott and the City of Hammond Gaming Advisory Committee in Hammond.


Designed primarily for first grade students, the highly successful Polar Express program demonstrated the powerful effect of combining art and literature. Using shapes to construct a polar landscape and train, students followed step-by-step instructions to complete an art project inspired by the book that met Indiana State Standards. Because of the efficacy of the Polar Express program, teachers in these school systems asked South Shore Arts to develop a similar program for the second grade classroom. The Skin You Live In is an arts-based literacy program based on the popular book of the same title that develops literacy skills through a message of friendship, social acceptance, and diversity. Funding for the pilot program has been provided by the Legacy Foundation, Lake County’s community foundation. Written by Chicago-based author Michael Tyler, illustrated by Hammond native David Lee Csicsko and published by Chicago Children’s Museum, The Skin You Live In uses jaunty rhyme and colorful, quirky illustrations to explore the concept of skin and celebrate the ways in which we are unique and similar. This cross-curricular education initiative will serve a total of 3,883 second grade students in their classrooms during 2010 at elementary schools in Hammond, East Chicago, Gary, Lake Station, and Merrillville. A copy of the book The Skin You Live In will be provided to each classroom. Teachers will read the book to the students and will discuss the language arts, self-esteem, and good citizenship concepts raised by the story. The program will also explore concepts of civic virtue and community involvement, and empower kids to be community helpers. After students

education have been introduced to the book, a South Shore Arts instructor will lead students in an art project inspired by the book. Students will embark on an exploration of community and diversity as they create a face and helping hands using multicultural paper and other art materials. Because the program is taken into the classroom, schools avoid the issues attendant to field trips, such as

increased ticket prices, loss of instructional time due to travel, and increased transportation costs. South Shore Arts has developed curricula that give teachers a creative and effective tool to help their students improve English/ language arts skills, encourage self-respect and social tolerance, and develop a life-long love for reading.



Continuing Our Work in East Chicago

The Foundations of East Chicago continue to support collaborative educational programs in East Chicago. Currently, South Shore Arts is providing programming to East Chicago youth through three collaborative grants funded by the Foundations. Project INSPIRE (Invigorating, Nurturing, Sustainable, Programs, Igniting, Rewarding, Experiences) is a comprehensive program that served approximately 3,000 students and their families in East Chicago. South Shore Arts and the East Chicago Arts Initiative worked together to develop teacher packets for classrooms in the East Chicago Public Elementary Schools and St. Stanislaus School where there is little to no art available. The grant provided monies for in-school and home art supplies and a one-hour art class in every classroom. The Junior Achievement Program also conducted in-school programs that help students prepare to be successful participation in our economy. Both organizations provided home activities to encourage families to spend quality time together. After school programs offered by United Neighborhood Organizations expand upon the content presented during the school day by exposing students to the history, geography, currency, art, music, dance, cuisine and traditions of different countries. Another collaborative effort serving the School City of East Chicago is Youth PLUS. This collaboration, conducted by Communities In Schools of East Chicago at East Chicago Central High School, as well as Block and Westside Middle Schools, addresses improving standardized test scores, academic achievement, character education and cultural enrichment for students at risk of educational failure or dropping out of school. Healthy East Chicago provides health and nutrition information to the students and their


families in addition to a connection to health resources. South Shore Arts provides cultural and art enrichment activities for students enrolled in the program along with family enrichment activities. This component provides a proven means to enhance critical thinking, self-esteem and self-confidence, appreciation of diversity and reduction of violence. Parent Community Academy provides weekly workshops at Noll Institute, East Chicago Lighthouse Academy, East Chicago Urban Enterprise and St. Stanislaus School on a variety of topics that empower parents to be engaged in the educational process that will help students to succeed. St. Catherine Hospital provides educational classes on various aspects of health and wellness. Neighborhoods Inc. offers classes on establishing neighborhood associations and other programs. South Shore Arts conducts its Making Memories—A Family Enrichment Program at three of the schools. Making Memories is a literacy-based program that gives families quality time together while exposing them to the arts. Each family receives five books for their home library. Thanks to the Foundations of East Chicago these innovative and collaborative partnerships will benefit the community by providing quality programming to the residents of East Chicago.

education TOOT ’N DOODLE at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts!


More than 250 second and third grade students participated this past fall in Toot ‘N Doodle at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. Sponsored by the Northwest Indiana Symphony, this educational program is conducted in partnership with South Shore Arts, VanderCook College of Music, and Quinlan & Fabish Music of Valparaiso. VanderCook College music education students introduce the children to the four instrument families and give them a chance to “play” the musical instruments. Quinlan provides the musical instruments. South Shore Arts instructors assist students in completing a music-inspired art project. This “hands-on” program strengthens small motor skills and hand-eye coordination, gives students the chance to hear the sounds the instruments make, and helps them see the connection between the visual arts and music. As one teacher stated so succinctly, this program is “so much more effective than looking at a picture of the instruments, [and] the art project tied in so perfectly.”
