YEAR ANNIVERSARY

ART WITH A MISSION: Making art accessible in the Quad Cities.

FALL/WINTER 2020


KEEPING THE ARTS IN THE FOREFRONT This year started like any other year, with lots of optimism and high expectations. It is easy to follow that statement with a “but” or an easy joke about 2020, but I am not going to do that. The reality is I am still optimistic, and I still have high expectations. I remain that way in light of how hard the arts and culture sector has been hit: Broadway is still dark, tour shows postponed, festivals canceled, large inperson gatherings are still not happening, where they are happening the ticket sales have not been stellar, and every person in the industry is working to make ends meet. Yet, I sit here optimistic with high expectations. Like everyone, Quad City Arts was challenged in ways that we could not have planned for. I will be the first to admit that it is heartbreaking to cancel residencies and scale back beloved events. It can start to take a toll if that is all you focus on and it becomes easier to lose that optimism. We take note of these changes, but we remind ourselves of the positive outcomes. This year has forced us to look at how we serve our mission, how we keep the arts present and alive, and how we communicate. Our office and gallery closed amid artwork drop-off for what is arguably our most important exhibition of the year, the Annual High School Art Invitational. After multiple changes, we committed to displaying this artwork online and still jurying the work to award prizes and scholarships. What started as a band-aid lead us to the realization that now more than ever we needed a digital gallery. It expedited the goal of selling art online. In an ever-changing landscape we were faced with options for our events: cancel, postpone, or re-imagine. We have used all three options this year. In some cases, events are successfully moving virtual pushing against the idea that an event must be done in person.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS | 1

It is not easy to continually make changes, but what has kept me optimistic are the outcomes. More people viewed the High School Art Invitational Awards Ceremony than can fit in our gallery. Artists exhibiting at Quad City Arts can now share (and sell) their work with a wider audience. Any artist who may have been unable to participate in person at Chalk Art Fest has been able to participate from their own home. While we navigate the exact look and feel of the Visiting Artist Series this year, we know that we have done so with the help of our educators. We now have options that can supplement future programming and increase access to the arts.

In this unique year, our mission of enriching the quality of life in our region through the arts remains critically important, and we thank our loyal supporters for helping us remain focused on working towards that mission. What follows in this newsletter are some highlights from those changes and outcomes followed by a look back at the last 50 years of Quad City Arts.

ART ONLINE

We all know that the onset of COVID-19 has radically shaken up our patterns for living. It has also temporarily reset our priorities from working, eating, and playing out in the world to doing as much as possible from home. This new lifestyle pattern required all presenters of the arts to re-think how we can continue to share the arts with people when they cannot attend events in person. At the same time, we have an obligation to artists to present their work to new audiences. To solve this dilemma, Quad City Arts created a new website with an online gallery and e-commerce platform to allow anyone, anywhere access to not only see the artists work currently showing in our galleries, but to also purchase it conveniently. The new website also offers a gallery store where artwork can be purchased. Once we receive notification that a work of art has sold, we arrange the shipping, pick-up or drop-off with the customer.

Visit QuadCityArts.com

The new re-design has also made it easier for visitors to find more information about our programs, artist opportunities and events. If you haven’t had a chance to see the new look, please check it out at www.quadcityarts.com and tell us what you think! In addition to offering artwork online, our executive director began an online video series where he interviews artists who are either exhibiting in our galleries, presenting public sculpture, or participating in a community art event. These lively conversations provide viewers with an opportunity to get to know these artists and gain a greater understanding of how they think, work and really what it takes to make a work of art. These insights help answer the common question: Why does art cost so much? You can watch archived conversations of “7 With Kevin” on our Youtube channel, Facebook page or on our website. While looking at art online doesn’t come close to the experience of observing it in person, it can provide a respite in the middle of a stressful day, a method to finding your new favorite artist, a way to support artists in our community and an easy way to decorate your new home office! We are excited to offer these new opportunities to connect artists with our community. CELEBRATING 50 YEARS | 2

HIGH SCHOOL ART INVITATIONAL Last spring, we were challenged with finding a way to still host the High School Art Invitational amidst a pandemic that not only forced us to close our gallery to the public, but also closed all area schools as well. The High School Art Invitational typically fills the walls of our gallery, showcasing works of art by 170 students from 13 schools, competing for over $5,000 in prizes and scholarships. It is an honor just to be selected, and for many students, the first time they would receive formal recognition for their creative talents. Even though the gallery was forced to close, Quad City Arts was committed to making the show happen and awarding the scholarships and prizes through a virtual online gallery. This would not have been possible without the incredible commitment from the instructors who worked with us at every turn to ensure we could get access to the student’s work. It highlights their incredible passion for their students. As a result, we had submissions from 12 schools, 97 students, and 13 teachers and had the privilege of awarding over $5,000 in awards to students. Award winners were recognized through a video presentation and online gallery. CELEBRATING 50 YEARS | 3

VIRTUAL PROGRAMS & EVENTS CHALK ART FEST FROM HOME! Another event bringing artists together to showcase their creative talents while competing for cash prizes is the Quad City Art’s Chalk Art Fest. In its 4th year, this 2-day festival traditionally crams together hundreds of artists that use the blank cement pavement to create amazing works of art. Visitors strolling by get to interact with the artists while watching their work come to life from conception to finished piece. While the event was canceled this year due to social distancing concerns, Quad City Arts remained committed to bringing this colorful event to the community. Art can be a very uplifting thing for people to see and be a part of, especially during times of crisis, so we still wanted to give artists the opportunity to share their creative talents as well as compete for cash prizes. The virtual event took place August 15-28th with artists being able to create their work safely from their own home. Artists who tagged Quad City Arts with photos or videos of their installation were able to have their work re-shared to Quad City Arts’ Facebook page. All final submissions were uploaded to Quad City Arts Facebook page on Saturday, August 29th for people’s choice voting and winners were announced on Monday, August 31st.

7 WITH KEVIN LIVE This fun video series was launched in June of this year, to spotlight artists that are in some way connected to Quad City Arts. The episodes are streamed live on Quad City Arts youtube and facebook channels every other Thursday at 7pm, where Quad City Arts Executive Director, Kevin Maynard, interviews a variety of artists in a fun, conversational and thought-provoking way that offers the viewer more insight into the artist’s background and their work. These videos are available for viewing online: • Episode #1 | Artist Insights: Ken Urban & Margaret Ertz • Episode #2 | Artist Insights: Don Horstman & David Zahn • Episode #3 | Metro Arts Showcase • Episode #4 | Artist Insights: David Van Allen & Ron Meyer • Episode #5 | Chalk Art Fest Insights: Rebecca Quick & Karie Gilson • Episode #6 | Artists Insights: Heidi Hernandez & Cécile Houel


As an arts organization that thrives on bringing live arts performances to the community, it has been difficult to not be able to offer those experiences in-person for the better part of this year. However, Quad City Arts has quickly adapted to the changing landscape, turning canceled events into digital events and finding new ways to offer arts experiences and opportunities to the community.

VISITING ARTIST SERIES Since 1974, the Visiting Artist Series has brought professional musicians, actors, dancers, and other performing artists into area schools to give lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and master classes for prekindergarten through 12th grade students, university and community college students during a week or two in residence. Library patrons, members of service clubs, senior citizens, church congregations, and students attending after school programs also benefit from visiting artist performances. Each residency seeks to increase Quad City residents’ access to the performing arts, as well as the Quad Cities’ diversity of art forms and artists presented and the audiences engaged by the performing arts. The 47th season of Visiting Artist Series will have new, online components to respond to the varied needs of teachers, school districts, and families as they follow COVID-19 guidelines. The fall season of online residencies will feature 11 artists representing a broad selection of music,

Jarabe Mexicano The Moxie Strings

dance, and theatre. Because the traditional delivery model focuses on only in-person events, we are changing to an all-online model for Fall 2020, providing access to video demonstrations, brief performances, study guides, and streamed live performances. It will be available until we begin hosting in-person residencies again or the end of the 2020-2021 school year, whichever comes first. Our plan to include online content for the upcoming series is our way to reach students who would otherwise not have access to high quality performing arts, due to their geographic location or financial means, as well as to provide teachers with relevant and engaging material connected to the classroom curriculum. As demonstrated by many of the artists on our roster who are streaming concerts and conducting Zoom classes, the performing arts do not disappear without audiences, they just adapt.

PERFORMING ARTS SIGNATURE SERIES (PASS) As a fundraiser for the Visiting Artist Series, this subscription series traditionally allows our guests to enjoy a private performance with select artists from the Visiting Artist Series. This intimate experience includes complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity for Q&A and up-close conversation with the artist. We want to thank all who had donated their tickets last season when we were forced to cancel our last two residencies with John Patti and Jarabe Mexicano. While this year’s PASS will look different, our hope is to still offer some unique experiences to our guests and will share details when they become available. For more information on joining PASS, please contact Karie Gilson at kgilson@ quadcityarts.com or 309-793-1213 x104 CELEBRATING 50 YEARS | 4


PUBLIC ART MATTERS

Despite restrictions, the summer of 2020 has been an active year for public art in the Quad Cities. The process worked differently but the outcomes were the same, but to the sponsors and participants, it felt more important. “While times are rough and interesting, it’s important for groups to persevere and accomplish, so there’s more at stake in this project than the project itself. It helps set a tone of forward of momentum and hope.” -Jeff Condit, Friendship Manor, via email sent on May 1, 2020 The Metro Arts Youth Apprenticeship Program provided a paid arts experience for over 30 students and paired them with lead artists to create art projects through murals and improv comedy. Metro Arts groups were limited to ten people on site, masks were required, and additionally cleaning protocols were put in place.

Metro Arts group conceptualizing murals

This year’s summer projects included: • The first Metro Arts project in Moline with a mural at 1516 6th Avenue sponsored by The Moline Foundation and Renew Moline • A large mural that wraps the maintenance building at Friendship Manor on 21st Avenue near 11th Street in Rock Island. This project was split into two groups due to its size. It was sponsored by Friendship Manor.

• Improv Comedy practiced and performed at Schwiebert Park in Rock Island and was sponsored by the City of Rock Island. The overall program was generously sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America. The Quad City Arts Public Sculpture Program coordinated the selection and installation of 14 public sculptures throughout the Quad Cities. Seven were selected for Bettendorf, five were selected for Rock Island, and we welcomed Moline back to the program with two.

“When people see art in a community, they know that the city leaders value culture and they take pride in their community,” Dawn Wohlford-Metallo, Quad City Arts’ visual arts director, said. “When sculpture is around, or murals, or other kinds of amenities, people feel good about their surroundings and then they want to live there."

In a traditional year, it is easy to point to the importance of public art through studies and anecdotal stories and evidence. In a year where people were asked to not interact with one another, public art became an easy way to experience hope and beauty with no one else around and often from the comfort of your vehicle. We were reminded of its connection deep within our own community. Friendship Manor maintenance building

KWIK STAR FESTIVAL OF TREES GOES VIRTUAL Quad City Arts’ biggest event is doing something new! If you had told us in January all that would happen this year, including that Festival of Trees would have to be re-imagined as a virtual event, we wouldn’t have “BELIEVED” you! 2020 has already been quite a year, but our community has faced each of these challenges head on and we have found ways to support one another through them. We are resilient. We are hopeful. We are all in this together. And, THAT is the spirit of Festival of Trees that we hope to carry through this year, virtually.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS | 7

We are grateful to have a team of faithful volunteers that work year-round to plan Festival of Trees, leading the committees that transform the empty RiverCenter into a winter wonderland every year, plan our special events, and make sure that everyone who enters feels the magic of Festival. They are the heart and soul of this event, and their commitment and expertise is valued immensely. It was with this group of volunteers that Quad City Arts made the difficult decision to not host the traditional in-person event this year, out of concern for the safety and well-being of our community.


The good news is, we are still celebrating the 35th year of Festival of Trees, November 21-29th! Quad City Arts has partnered with KWQC-TV6 to bring you a one-hour Holiday Special to air on November 21, at 10am, during the traditional parade hour. Kick off your holidays with footage and memories from past parades, Centerstage entertainment and a special message from the big guy himself – Santa Claus! Grab breakfast and tune into KWQC-TV6 at 10 am on November 21 to experience the fun of Festival from the comfort of your home, without having to bundle up the kids or find parking! Then join us for a Day of Giving, on the same day to support Festival of Trees and Quad City Arts! Your gift of just $10 will pay for one child to experience world-class performing artists through the Visiting Artist Series. We have some exciting milestones and matches that will make your dollars go even farther!

We will be open extended hours the week of November 21-29 so you can get all your holiday shopping in! Now more than ever, the arts are giving us comfort, entertainment, and hope for the future. We invite you to join us as we make our mark on 2020 by investing in our community through Festival of Trees Day of Giving and support of Quad City Arts.

YEAR ANNIVERSARY

As we continue to explore new ways of bringing the arts to our community, we also want to take a step back and celebrate an important milestone in our organization’s rich history. This fall, Quad City Arts is celebrating its 50th anniversary, dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the Quad-City region through the arts. Looking back at the impact, the QuadCities would not be the Quad-Cities without Quad City Arts. Founded in August 1970 as Quad City Arts Council, we are a nonprofit arts organization serving a six-county area in eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois. We are passionate about the growth and vitality of the Q-C region through the arts and for the past 50 years, have been committed to making quality arts education accessible to everyone through arts opportunities, programming, and community events.

Acting on an urban renewal opportunity in 1990, Quad City Arts began the renovation of a former department store for its offices and gallery space that became the cornerstone project in the revitalization of Rock Island’s downtown, The Arts & Entertainment District. The Quad City Arts Center Gallery has been central to the organization for 27 years offering more than 2,500 square feet of space showcasing some of the most unique artwork in the area.

Among hallmarks of Quad City Arts is the Visiting Artist Series, which started in 1974 to present multi-disciplinary performing arts residencies in schools and community sites and has brought us more than 700 artists, 450 residencies, 10,200 school visits, 420 concerts, and almost 2.7 million people reached. In 2019 alone, the series impacted 24,649 K-12 students. The Festival of Trees launched in 1986, and has served as the primary fundraiser for Quad City Arts since its inception, bringing together 3,000 volunteers each year to put on 11 days of events (including a 98-member steering committee). The Visiting Artist Series, Festival of Trees and Quad City Arts Council officially merged into one entity in 1988.

This popular space is frequently used for informal musical and literary performances and for special community group meetings. Quad City Arts has expanded its programs over the years, starting with the annual High School Art Invitational in 1977; the Arts Dollars grant program in 1979; the Metro Arts Youth Apprenticeship program began in 2000; and Art at the Airport in 2001; and the Public Sculpture Program in 2002. Chalk Art Fest started in 2017, and this year, we started taking over some MidCoast Fine Arts programming (since that nonprofit disbanded in the spring), including Riverssance Festival of Fine Art and the High School Pastel Competition. While those did not occur this year, we do plan to continue them in 2021.

In 2019, through all its public programs (including visiting artists, concerts, exhibits, and Festival of Trees), Quad City Arts attracted a total of over 304,000 people, displayed the work of 266 artists, and re-granted over $90,000 to individual artists and organizations in support of community arts projects.

“In the cultural structure of the Quad-Cities, the institutions like the Putnam, Figge and Symphony are the bricks; however, Quad City Arts is the mortar,” recent board president and longtime volunteer Chris Rayburn said. “Quad City Arts is the glue that connects the arts with the community. It is less visible than the ‘bricks,’ but it is everywhere, and it is every bit as essential.” Former President/CEO of W.G. Block (a concrete, sand and gravel company), and a practicing artist himself, Rayburn has been part of the nonprofit for nearly 30 years and is proud of the fact he’s served two terms as board president 20 years apart.

Quad City Arts Council, Visiting Artist Series and Festival of Trees officially merge into one entity.

“I am equally proud of my work curating and installing the exhibition space at the airport for so many years. It is truly a showcase for both local and regional art and artists,” he said. “Honestly, I am proud of every minute I have spent with Quad City Arts.” Rayburn is especially impressed with executive director Kevin Maynard (who began in December 2018), who he said “is leading a fantastic staff of extremely dedicated and hardworking professionals. The organization has a fantastic board of directors, is on strong financial footing and is really leaning into its future,” Rayburn said.

“What I love most about Quad City Arts is the passion of our staff and volunteers to present art programming in many different forms to as many people as we can possibly reach,” said Dawn Wohlford-Metallo, visual arts director since 2001, who oversees the main gallery at 1715 2nd Ave., Rock Island, and gallery at Moline’s Quad City International Airport.

“We invest time to seek out individuals who are not aware of our programs and offer access to opportunities for them -- by inviting regional artists to enter work for exhibition or making sure an underprivileged child has transportation and a free ticket to a performance,” she said. “What I like most about my job is the variety. No day is just like another.”

Maynard, 32, came to Rock Island after working five years as executive director of Galesburg’s Orpheum Theatre. He attended Black Hawk College, graduated from Western Illinois University in 2011, and earned his MBA at Western in 2013. “I knew Quad City Arts and its reputation because we were booking shows in Galesburg as well, and knew talking to agents they were working with Quad City Arts. And obviously, Festival of Trees, I knew about growing up because I grew up in Geneseo,” Maynard said. Even though he was raised in the Q-C, he didn’t realize the farreaching impact of the organization before working for it.


VISITING ARTIST SERIES: Over 700 artists, more than 10,200 school visits and over 2.7 million kids reached since 1974. “It’s the breadth of programming, the amount in the arts that Quad City Arts is serving,” Maynard said. “It’s not just the Visiting Artist Series; it’s not just the gallery spaces. It’s the public sculpture program. It’s Metro Arts, Chalk Art Festival, and the list goes on and on.” During the Covid-19 pandemic, which has upended society and devastated arts venues nationwide, he and Quad City Arts have had to be nimble and creative to adapt and continue its mission. The High School Art Show, Metro Arts, and Chalk Art Fest have all continued under varied formats, and Maynard has introduced a new video series to highlight what we do – “7 With Kevin Live” (which debuts every other Thursday).

“We’re constantly moving forward,” he said. “Obviously, 2020 has thrown a wrench in the mix, but we’re going to find a way to pivot and deliver on that mission, and still provide opportunities for artists in our region and really be able to provide art education opportunities through Metro Arts as well as the Visiting Artist Series. It may not look like past years, but it’s still just as important, if not more important, to deliver on that programming. “Especially, with the Arts Dollars program alone, we track how many grants we’ve given out since the beginning, and what those dollar amounts are, it’s amazing,” he said. “It’s a way for our entity to have an impact on smaller arts organizations that may not have a very large budget -- or may not have a grant writer. Some of these national and state grants take a lot of time and effort to submit, so if they’re unable to do that or feel they don’t qualify for that, we’re here for an option so they can still get funding."

“They can still have an impact in the Quad-Cities through the arts,” Maynard said. Since 1990, Arts Dollars has given out over $1.33 million in 802 grants to 447 unique recipients. In 2019, it distributed over $90,000 to 21 projects, each year offering funding for individual artists and nonprofits of all sizes to support arts-centered projects in the Q-C and surrounding communities. Our goal is to equip individuals and organizations to engage their community, see a long-lasting benefit from the completed projects and pay artists for their work in the process. Quad City Arts gets funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the states of Illinois and Iowa, and other private granting agencies. “We intend to continue working with those agencies, so that we can continue to provide those grants,” he said. Arts Dollars is funded mainly through the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation and the Illinois Arts Council. By not being able to do a traditional Festival of Trees this year will certainly negatively affect Quad City Arts revenue. “There definitely will be an impact by not hosting an inperson Festival of Trees this year, but we’re confident that the community is going to work with us,” Maynard said. “The QuadCities is an incredibly supportive and giving community. We think we’re going to be able to bring in some dollars to bridge that gap. We’re also making changes so we can still continue to offer all our programming, even with a smaller budget in mind.”

2017

Annual Chalk Art Fest event begins

The five-week Metro Arts summer apprenticeship program often creates public murals by students ages 15-21, and this year included improv comedy. The program has served 1,140 students since it started (with 96 varied projects), and stipends for apprentices are $500 each; $750 for the senior apprentice, and $2,000 for the professional lead artists. In lieu of an in-person Festival of Trees this year, we are partnering with KWQC to present a fun-filled one-hour Holiday Special to air on Saturday, Nov. 21st during the traditional parade hour, asking the community to partner for a Day of Giving on the same day. The TV special event will consist of coverage from past parades, Center Stage acts, messages from staff, volunteers, and community members as well as a message of hope from Santa himself. The goal is to set up matching donors and sponsors who will help make donations go farther. “The health and wellness of our community is, above all else, our first priority and we truly believe that the spirit of Festival of Trees will be preserved this year through community connection and a commitment to supporting the arts,” Maynard said. Just like we’ve done for 50 years.
