ENGAGE

WEITZENHOFFER FAMILY COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS CALENDAR


FROM THE COVER ARTIST CAMILA LINAWEAVER

My printmaking work depicts themes of immigrant displacement through representations of the landscape. My prints question the use of land, and humans’ unwavering search for a better life. I immigrated across the U.S./Mexico border as a child, and the effects of that journey created lasting psychological and physical dualities. Time has distorted my perceptions of that experience, yet even as a child I was aware of the social, political, and cultural implications of the event. A recent return to the U.S./Mexico border reframed the significance of the landscape as a means to address migrations and border issues. “Natural Borders” is a subtle study of the natural barriers found on the U.S./Mexico Border. There is a rigid, manmade, quality of the maze-like lines imposed onto the landscape that imply a presence of people and the notion of passage. The abstract black forms create a barrier that disappears into the background, symbolizing the arbitrary nature of many of the natural and manmade barriers that exist in these spaces. This piece is part of a an ongoing series that explores themes of immigration, the displacement of people, and how these physical and psychological barriers affect those who cross them.


DIRECTORS’ WELCOME TO THE WEITZENHOFFER FAMILY COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS Whether you are a longtime friend of the arts at OU or new to the offerings of the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts we invite you to ENGAGE with our amazing, creative productions, exhibitions and concerts throughout this academic year.

Ashton Byrum is the new director of the Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre! Coming to the University of Oklahoma from Columbia College in Chicago after a successful professional career, Byrum joins a diverse and talented group of 16 freshmen from nine states along with 40 fabulous continuing students. Lyn Cramer choreographs and directs the mainstage production of “Dogfight” in early November with Harold Mortimer serving as music director. OKC Philharmonic will ring in the holiday season, “The Christmas Show” again with Lyn Cramer directing and 18 students and faculty performing. A sumptuous production of “Grand Hotel” in the spring is sure to be an audience favorite!

Collaborations continue to be a cornerstone of the School of Dance in projects with World Literature Today, Beijing Normal University, and New York-based dance company Ten Hairy Legs. We also are excited to open the University Theatre season in September by paying tribute to Maya Angelou and the 40th anniversary of her classic, “And Still I Rise,” with the premier of an original ballet. On November 7, we will celebrate the milestone of our 25th annual Once Upon a Dream gala fund raiser by honoring the many faculty and staff who have been instrumental in the school’s growth. We have an exciting year ahead!

HOLMBERG HALL TURNS 100 The iconic building known commonly as Historic Holmberg Hall has been recognized as one of the top 15 among the 50 most beautiful conservatories and Schools of Music in the nation. The hall stands prominently over Parrington Oval in an architecture style known as Cherokee Gothic, a term coined by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright when he visited the campus. The design reflects classic gothic architecture mixed with influences from the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma. Turreted towers and medieval wooden doorways greet patrons. Crimson carpet and cream walls sweep through the lobby with statues, paintings and unique photographs that showcase the impressive history of the building. A colorful mural anchors the lobby and includes an expansive frieze depicting a number of the distinguished guests to have visited the historic hall. Holmberg Hall has hosted some of the state’s most memorable events and well-known visitors, including President William Howard Taft, piano virtuoso Van Cliburn, jazz legend Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, American violinist Isaac Stern, legendary mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne, interpretive storyteller Te Ata Fisher and modern dancer Martha Graham. Additionally, several of the university’s landmark events occurred in Holmberg Hall, including OU football Coach Bud Wilkinson’s national trophy presentation as well as then-U.S. Senator David L.Boren’s acceptance speech for the OU presidency in 1994. More recently, in September 2017, Boren also selected this stage for announcing his plans to retire as president after serving the university for more than 23 years. “Holmberg Hall has seen literally thousands of students launch their careers during their years at OU. From those who have gone on to perform in Broadway musicals and national tours to countless others performing in professional theatres, dance companies and orchestras as well as graduates who have become professional designers and technicians, all have benefitted from the opportunity to work in this exceptional OU landmark. Under past President Boren’s leadership, the renovation to the hall in 2005 ensured that it will continue to serve the arts, our university and central Oklahoma communities, and our students with its state of the art technology, beauty, and tradition,” Dean Mary Margaret Holt.


Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Patrons of the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts, As the Oklahoma summer heats up, our preparations heat up for a new, exciting season/academic year of exhibits, performances, recitals and activities! Even before the final curtain fell in May, repertory had been selected for concerts, plays, opera, dance and musical theatre productions. Selecting titles, subjects, composers, writers and choreographers whose work will challenge our students and enrich their total experience while also enriching your experience as a concert, museum, or theatre-goer is an exciting opportunity and one we embrace with enthusiasm. As a result, “What’s Next” will include some surprises, favorites, new approaches, and an intriguing entree to music. dance. visual arts, theatre, poetry, and musical theatre. It also may include “What’s Next or New” on your list of favorites. Welcome the surprise of “What’s Next” and open your senses to a full exploration of the College of Fine Arts and our award-winning programs, students, faculty, and staff. This year, Ashton Byrum, director of the A. Max Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre is new to our roster. Ashton and his family join us from Chicago where he was associate chair and coordinator of Musical Theatre at Columbia College following an impressive career in professional musical theatre. We are delighted to welcome him to OU! Also new this year, is a production concept we have dubbed “unveiled”. One production each academic year will be “unveiled” so that the exquisite, creative bones of the script, plot, music or choreography are truly at the forefront of the production. See all nine of our exceptional productions and let us know which was “unveiled” for you. As we approach this new academic year and performance season, all of us — students, faculty, and staff — are united in our efforts to bring you the best of the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts on a daily basis. We are also more united than ever in our determination to celebrate the arts as they speak beyond social, economic, and cultural barriers in an environment that supports learning, growth, exploration, creation and respect for all. “What’s Next” is a season to remember!

AN Invitation to Support the Arts!

A message from Paige Gregory, Public Relations Coordinator

Artisans Arts! Arts! Arts! Fundraising Gala Dance Partners Dean’s Circle Dean’s Circle Young Patrons Friends of Music Musical Theatre Opera Guild Theatre Guild University theatre sponsors

Financial support from our generous partners enables The Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts to showcase first-class productions, concerts and exhibitions featuring our emerging student artists. More importantly, support from private gifts ensures we can continue to offer the best overall educational experience to our talented students, the future professional artists that will illuminate our communities. With rising costs in higher education and decreasing state funding, your investment is more important than ever. I encourage you to take a moment to review the featured opportunities listed here and consider what role you can play in supporting our talented artists and the dedicated staff and faculty who support them. Whether it is giving scholarship support, funding facility enhancements, or providing important enrichment funding, I hope you will take center-stage by making a commitment to support the arts at OU! We look forward to seeing you at many OU Fine Arts events this year. Thank you for your support! WWW.OU.EDU/FINEARTS/SUPPORT

We appreciate your support of the Arts at OU!
