Performers in Atmosphere explore clouds, wind, light, and rain in a performance directly inspired by the ideas, movements, and words of children ages 3-6 (and their families) in our Play Lab series. Audiences will enter a participatory space where the rain tells us secrets, the wind makes us dance, and live music lights up the sky. The interactive installation, designed by guest artist Sharon McCaman, will be open to the public from January 10 through February 22 with ticketed performances occurring at select times each week. * Performance is recommended for 2-6 year olds, but precocious babies and curious creatives of all ages are absolutely encouraged to attend!

Story Slam was started in 2010 by long-time Arts Center performing arts aficionado David Hollond. What began as a small group of storytellers and their friends in the Black Box has grown this past decade into a crowd that required a move to the larger Main Stage Theater.

Coppélia is the great comedic ballet of the nineteenth century. All couples who marry at the festival for a new bell will receive a handsome dowery. Swanilda and Franz are set to be one of those couples until Franz is taken with a beautiful young girl sitting on the balcony of Dr. Coppélius’s house. Can the feisty Swanilda prove to Franz she is the only real love for him?

Join us to tell your story, or sit back and enjoy tales spun by your friends and neighbors each month!

PROJECT BASED RESIDENT

Abigail Smithson

Abigail Smithson is a multi-media artist based in Tucson, Arizona. Born and raised in the Bay Area of California, she received her Bachelor of Arts with a minor in history from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010 and her Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in 2017. With a focus on documentation, her work is rooted in the appreciation, translation and act of making records. Basketball is her muse; she uses the game as a lens for viewing issues surrounding the body and representation. Her art practice is a way to respond to the history and current culture of the game. abigailsmithson.com During her time as a visiting artist, Smithson hopes to engage the Lawrence community through the game of basketball, using the process of making cyanotypes and recording podcasts with local citizens who have opinions and insights on basketball history and contemporary culture surrounding the game. Smithson’s ongoing goal is to work within communities to understand how basketball exists in each place. Through events, artmaking, and story-seeking, she hopes to create a platform for those around her to share their ideas in collaboration. Smithson joins the Arts Center for her Project-Based Residency at the end of February. Please check our website in December for more information on how you can work with her or be interviewed for her podcast “Dear Adam Silver.” This Project-based residency is generously supported by all those who “Raise the Paddle” during our Annual Art Auction.

State of the Arts AT THE LAWRENCE ARTS CENTER, we know the value of artistic and cultural endeavors. Since 1974, Arts Center staff have worked to create engaging arts experiences accessible to everyone. A strong partnership of private supporters and the City of Lawrence has enabled the Arts Center to grow into the largest employer of artists in Kansas, housed in a bustling state of the art facility with studios, stages, classrooms, and galleries used seven days a week year round. We bring artists from around the world to our community to provide unmatched opportunities and unique experiences for students of all ages and abilities, in addition to professional development for practicing artists. Access to arts and culture is proven to have a positive impact on public health and individual wellbeing. Whether participating

as a student in an art class, as an observer at an exhibition, or as an audience member or performer in a theatre production, 40% of participants report feeling more positive about their community after an arts experience according to a study by the Americans for the Arts. Nine out of ten people describe making new friends through arts experiences, and groups built around arts experiences score higher on trust and tolerance.

Access to arts and culture is a defining feature of a strong community with measurable economic impact. At last count, 3% of the businesses in Kansas were arts-based, employing over 21,000. Douglas County leads the state, reporting 5% of businesses based in the arts. 60% of creative jobs in the county are provided by the Lawrence Arts Center.

Consumers of arts and culture are also healthier, with lower stress, heart rate and blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and obesity rates. Research consistently shows that arts education especially after school programs - significantly improves academic success.

The Arts Center is proud to play a role in our community’s arts and culture scene alongside such notable organizations as the Lawrence Public Library, the University of Kansas Spencer Museum of Art, Lied Center, Hall Center for the Humanities, Watkins Museum of History, Van Go Mobile Arts, Theatre Lawrence, Buskerfest, Raven Bookstore, Haskell Indian Nations University and various Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission programs. We are proud to present the annual Free State Festival, which partners with many of these community organizations in city-wide celebration.

In addition, communities with access to arts and culture benefit from spillover effects, including a strong sense of community, high levels of civic engagement, better overall health measures, sense of personal security, and economic vitality.

We are committed to continuing to enhance and grow our creative impact on this City of the Arts, and we recognize that our success is due to our supportive, engaged, and imaginative community. Together we ensure that Art is for —Amy Albright Everyone!
