Ongoing Exhibit Series Focuses on the Transformational Power of Art Urban Legends, a two-part South Shore Arts exhibit series showcasing artists whose work is sparking new life in old places, continues at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts through January 29, 2019, with Indy Windy: A Love Story. The exhibit features 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. Curated by Ish Muhammad, a self-taught artist from Indiana who maintains a studio at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago, the exhibit presents an overview of creative activity currently underway by a community of Midwest artists, some of whom have been working together for nearly 30 years. Indy Windy: A Love Story captures the relationship that Northwest Indiana artists maintain with the creative community in Chicago. Informational didactics help viewers understand the diversity throughout this sprawling metropolitan region and how the artwork is being used to create new environments. The exhibit showcases a dozen artists, along with two crews and a collective. Among the artworks on display are selections from the Indiana State Museum’s Still Crazy: 30th Anniversary of CISA, an exhibition of artifacts and paintings covering the history of Crazy Indiana Style Artists, Indiana’s first Latino artist collective formed in East Chicago in 1986. Although Indy Windy: A Love Story includes the grit of the graffiti writing movement, it is not intended to be a graffiti-only show, nor is it a response to whether graffiti is art or vandalism. The exhibit includes 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 Indiana Style Artists (CISA), FAB Crew, graffiti writer Mario ZORE Gonzalez, self-taught artist Tyrue SLANG Jones, Emmet Kerrigan, Felix FLEX Maldonado, Liz Mares, Brian Presnell, Tom Torluemke, members of the artist collective The Unwonted, former steel worker Roman Villarreal, and Chicago-based street artist Zor Zor Zor.

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. The exhibit will feature the photography of Decay Devils Tyrell Anderson and Lori Gonzalez, along with Dennis

Crane, Ashley Diener, Joel Henderson, Thomas Hocker, Eric Holubow, Matthew Kaplan, Mike Kinsch, Joey Lax-Salinas, Jamie Link, Larry D. Mickow, Jr., Bob Palmieri, and Guy Rhodes. “Gary’s haunts lie dormant near Lake Michigan and steel mills responsible for their creation, sometimes inhabited by the homeless and visited by curiosity seekers and photographers fascinated by urban ruins,” states James B. Lane, co-director of the Calumet Regional Archives at Indiana University Northwest, in the exhibit catalogue.

“Still eerily beautiful, they are representative of the grand illusions of early 20th-century city builders and symptomatic of a throw-away society with a short historical memory.” A combined catalogue for both Urban Legends exhibits not only documents the featured artists, but also serves as a primer on public art of the Calumet Region, urban blight here and beyond, and the need for regeneration. Hopefully it can provide community leaders with fresh inspiration to draw upon the power of art and the creativity of artists, which have been successfully utilized in other parts of the country, as means to transform ruined places. 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. At the same time, the images that Dennis Crane, August 6, Photograph

photographers have captured among urban ruins will shed light on the exciting possibilities that lie ahead for urban renewal projects. Together, these exhibits will explore, document and promote the work being done as it transforms what has been into what can be. 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. Lead underwriting for the Urban Legends series has been made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Legacy Foundation, Lake County’s Community Foundation, and Peoples Bank. Additional funding has been provided by Hammond Machine Works, Indiana University Northwest, NIPSCO, and the TIMES Media Company. Thanks to a special grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Fund at Legacy Foundation, both of the exhibits under the heading of Urban Legends will travel to multiple venues in Gary after they have been presented in Munster. Indy Windy: A Love Story will be presented simultaneously, February 8 through March 10, 2019, at ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen, 411 E. 5th Avenue; the Gary Public Library and Cultural Center, 220 W. 5th Avenue; and the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District’s Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts, 540 S. Lake Street. Urban Legends: Haunts will be presented simultaneously at the same locations, May 31 through July 7, 2019.

South Shore Arts celebrated the milestone 75th anniversary of the annual Salon Show, September 9 through November 4, 2018. This year’s exhibit juror was Chicago-based visual artist, curator and creative entrepreneur Sergio Gomez, who selected 63 artists and 69 works out of over 300 submissions. $10,000 in prizes were awarded to 24 artists thanks to the generosity of many longtime donors, including the Surovek Family Fund and Tracy & Marc Schwimmer.

A Concert with Courses Returns for a Second Helping! The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra held its second “Concert with Courses” gala on Friday evening, October 12, at the Center for Visual & Performing Arts in Munster. The evening began with Youth Orchestra ensembles entertaining guests as they arrived for cocktails, conversation and

bidding on the silent auction, including Blackhawks “On the Glass” tickets, a Southwest airfare gift card, spa and dinner experiences plus theater, music and fashion. Special thanks to the Gala Committee who helped make the auction and the evening great fun and a big success! The musicians played a fanfare calling guests to their seats at 7pm. Maestro Muspratt was the evening’s Master of Ceremonies, introducing the courses and the musicians, including two Symphony ensembles, a mother/daughter violin duo and the Symphony Chorus. The evening’s finale brought lots of smiles and “hidden” talents to the stage as Chorus Director Nancy Menk and Maestro Muspratt led the chorus and gala attendees in karaoke, featuring Yesterday, Rubber Duckie and Three Dog Night’s Joy to the World. One very special aspect of the evening was that participating musicians joined guests at their tables, giving concertgoers and musicians a chance to get to know each other better. Thanks to all who attended, donated and worked on the “Concert with Courses” gala!

Education Concerts Move to Multiple Venues Four performances of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra’s 2018 Education Concerts were presented over a two-day period at two separate venues—Monbeck Auditorium at Highland High School on October 23 and Valparaiso High School auditorium on October 24. This year, over 3,000 students had the opportunity to attend the Symphony’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty: A Fairy Tale Favorite, featuring selections from Pytor Ilych Tchaikovsky’s original score to the ballet Sleeping Beauty. Prior to the concert every year, the Symphony’s education department prepares a study guide that provides information on the featured composers, music and families of instruments in the orchestra. Additionally, the study guide includes a link to a Spotify playlist featuring the selections that have been chosen by Maestro Kirk Muspratt for the concert program. For many students, the education concert is often their first exposure to live classical music. It is an experience that can have a lasting impact on a young person, as is evidenced by the many wonderful letters and drawings that Maestro Muspratt receives in the weeks following the performance.

As one student wrote this year, “My favorite instrument was the harp because it was soft and pretty. I loved it and hope that I can come back to hear it again.” The education concerts are favorites for the entire Symphony family. Maestro Muspratt explains, “The orchestra and I enjoyed sharing this beautiful music with the students so very much! They were all extremely well behaved, respectful and well prepared.” The Maestro went on to say, “The only part they didn’t seem to like was the image of the prince kissing Sleeping Beauty.” Maestro was referring to the point near the end of the presentation when an image of this scene was projected onto the screen, and a resounding collective “Ew!” filled the auditorium. The ongoing success of the education concerts is largely owed to the dedication of the Symphony staff and volunteers, as well as the financial support of Community Healthcare System, the Porter County Community Foundation, Manhart/Gibbons Family Memorial Fund, Kappa Kappa Kappa, Inc., Beta Rho Chapter, and Mr. & Mrs. Glen C. Hannah. Although new challenges arose this year as a result of no longer being able to present these concerts at the Star Plaza Theatre, it was exciting to have the opportunity to take the music out into the community and serve a wider geographical range. The Symphony looks forward to continuing this important educational event for years to come!
