University of Wisconsin–Madison Arts Institute Annual Report

The 2015-2016 academic year has been an auspicious time for the Arts Institute and the arts on campus. We celebrate the many new initiatives, curricular ideas and partnerships that have enriched the opportunities for our affiliates and staff alike. As we have continued to establish the foundation for the next chapter of the Arts Institute, I take this opportunity to be reflective. The Arts Institute has been a constant on campus challenging the status quo and bringing international and nationally renowned artists to campus to work with students, faculty and community. We are happy to present programs like the Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program which enrich our community and expand our

understanding of the powerful effect that the arts can have as a change agent. Once again, we have seen the impact that programs like the Wisconsin Film Festival, the Madison Early Music Festival, or new initiatives like Communicating Science have had on our campus, Madison and the state. Through programs like these, we honor the Wisconsin Idea by expanding beyond the campus boundaries and engaging with communities creating new perceptions of the many ways the arts can inspire, serve and transform.

leadership role on to our next director, John Baldacchino, I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to be witness to the evolution that begins this fall as he steps into the role I have held for the last nine years. It has been a pleasure to serve the campus and the arts community. As I return to the faculty, I am proud to be an affiliate and look forward to continuing my research with the Arts Institute.

The Arts Institute enters a new chapter. It has been a pleasure and privilege to serve as the founding director and the architect of this iteration of the organization. As I hand the

It is indeed a great honor to take on from where Norma Saldivar has just left off. Thanks to her dedication and leadership, the Arts Institute now enjoys the necessary autonomy to move into a new phase: providing a gateway for the arts within and beyond the University. This gateway leads to a meeting-place, an agĂ´n, where the arts meet and often converge while retaining their diversity, specificity and creative integrity.

Norma Saldivar, Director | 2008–2016

John Baldacchino, Director


MISSION AND VISION In July 2015, the Arts Institute became its own stand-alone division. In preparation, the Institute’s leadership met with the Office of Quality Improvement in 2014 to create a new mission, vision, values and strategic initiatives for the next three years. By working with faculty and staff in a wide range of departments encompassing both arts and non- artsrelated fields, the Arts Institute is now in a position to create conditions for bold thinking and creative problem solving across campus. Together with our partners we can further develop and support a vibrant arts community as well as enhance and enrich the campus-at-large.

Mission The UW–Madison Arts Institute’s mission is to educate, advocate and inspire through all forms of creative expression.

Vision ff To have a profound and positive impact on students in our local and global communities

Core Values

Diversity Statement

ff We value all forms of artistic expression, experience, interpretation and critical investigation as fundamental paths to understanding and engaging our world

The Arts Institute’s affiliate faculty, staff, guest artists and students promote the importance and power of art as a vital platform to inquire about the world, illuminate and address injustices, challenge points of view and to celebrate all aspects of humanity.

ff We believe that core training in the arts (discipline-based foundational courses and experiences) is fundamental to the success of students ff We foster integrated and collaborative engagement among staff, partners and stakeholders ff We advocate for the essential value of the arts on campus and beyond

We respect, advocate and fully promote the diversity and inclusivity of artistic expression and its important connection and impact on audiences and the community – especially as an agent for cultural competency. We remain steadfast in our mission to embrace all members of our diverse community and are committed to educate using guiding principles and values such as civil discourse and freedom of speech, as integral components to create, exhibit, perform and showcase art.

INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTS RESIDENCY PROGRAM Funded by the Cluster Hiring Initiative through the Office of the Provost, the Arts Institute’s Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program (IARP) brings innovative, world-class artists to campus for semester-long residencies sponsored by two or more departments. While in residence, artists teach an interdisciplinary course, present public events and participate in community outreach. The program gives students exposure to working artists, provides course credit and strengthens programmatic ties among individual departments, programs and other campus and community arts entities. The 2015-2016 academic year marked the 20th anniversary of the arts residency program which then evolved to the Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program in 1999.

Over the years, IARP has assisted in launching significant campus initiatives: Arts Enterprise First Wave Hip Hop and Urban Arts Learning Community Madison World Music Festival Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture Occupy Discovery Tales from Planet Earth Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Image Lab For information contact: Emily Lewis | Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program Coordinator 608-890-2196 | emily.lewis@wisc.edu go.wisc.edu/artsresidency

Juan de Marcos González | go.wisc.edu/juandemarcos Grammy Award winner Juan de Marcos González (stage name: Juan de Marcos) is a central figure in Cuban music. His work with the Afro-Cuban All Stars, the Buena Vista Social Club, Ruben González, Ibrahim Ferrer, Sierra Maestra and others has made an extraordinary contribution to raising the profile of Cuban music throughout the world. Juan de Marcos has arranged, conducted, produced and/or performed on over 25 albums.

Guest artists included: ff Gliceria Abreu, Gliceria González Abreu and Laura Lydia González ff Afro-Cuban All Stars ff Kurtis Blow ff Pellejo Seco

While in residence, Juan de Marcos performed with three UW–Madison School of Music ensembles: Jazz Orchestra, Latin Jazz Ensemble and World Percussion Ensemble; presented seven lectures on Cuban music, including with guest artists: Afro-Cuban All Stars, Telmary Diaz, and Pellejo Seco; and participated in five partner events, which included concerts at the Madison World Music Festival and the Overture Center. For the culminating event Juan de Marcos, hip-hop legend Kurtis Blow, the three music ensembles, residency production students and “Madison’s Schools Got Talent” finalists performed to a full house. To provide more access to the event, it was live-streamed and uploaded to YouTube.

ff Telmary Diaz

Residency Activity The legendary musician taught a 3-credit course “Afro-Cuban Music: Roots, Jazz, Hip Hop” to cover the development of Afro-Cuban music and the emergence of Cuban Hip Hop and a 1-credit course “Music Production: Afro-Cuban & Hip Hop Music” where students had a chance to produce and record music at a local studio.

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE: We will create a “community of practice” through new and existing spaces

The Juan de Marcos collaboration with Kurtis Blow has become one of the landmarks of Madison. The efforts of everyone involved brought community together across all cultural, religious, economical and political boundaries for one common cause – great music and performances. The “Madison Schools Got Talent Competition” was a huge success. What an elegant, exciting and entertaining night it was.” —Minister Caliph Amiri Muab’El Executive Director of Breaking Barriers Mentoring, Inc.

SPRING 2016

Amy Franceschini | go.wisc.edu/franceschini Amy Franceschini is an internationally known social artist and designer who encourages exchanges and inquiry through temporary and permanent public art. In 1995, she founded the collective Futurerfarmers, which has been a launching platform for subsequent group projects. A guiding theme in her work and in the group projects is the perceived conflict between nature and culture. Through these projects, audiences are encouraged to participate and initiate change in their own communities.

Guest artists included: ff Martin Lundberg ff Joe Riley ff Stijn Schiffeleers ff Michael Swaine

Residency Activity While in residence, Franceschini taught a 3-credit studio course titled “Ecology of Research: Seeds of Time.” Students from a variety of majors participated in Franceschini’s project Seed Journey, which is launching later this year, as well as her on-going project Flatbread Society. Formed in 2012, Futurefarmers’ Flatbread Society is a permanent public art project created on a

waterfront development in Oslo, Norway. An outgrowth of Flatbread Society, Seed Journey is a seafaring voyage that moves people, ideas and seeds through time and space. This voyage of crew and cargo will transport varieties of unpatented ancient grains, recently discovered in Oslo, back to the Fertile Crescent, where agriculture originated. During the residency, her students also worked with guest artists. Franceschini and Swaine both spoke in the Art Department’s Visiting Artist Colloquium and she presented her work to UW– MANIAC attendees at a lunchtime talk. Students were given the opportunity to present their work at two potlucks and the final event, “Seeds of Time,” which was held on April 22 at James Madison Park, including at the Gates of Heaven. The event allowed guests to engage with the students on their final projects for the course, which included a bread-themed contra dance, net weaving, water testing and performance art.

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE: We will explore new ways to teach and learn

UW ARTS IN THE COMMUNITY American Family Children’s Hospital Big Screens, Little Folks screenings During the Wisconsin Film Festival, the Arts Institute worked with American Family Children’s Hospital staff to screen animated films featured in the Big Screens, Little Folks series. Patients and their families were able to watch a 24/7 loop of seven short films from around the world while in the comfort of their own room. Activity booklets and parent guides were also provided. Support from UW Health, Unity Health Insurance, and Child Life Services and Clinical Engineering staff were instrumental in the success of this new and on-going partnership.

Through the Eyes of Hollywood: Healthcare Depictions in Cinema In May and June, the Arts Institute presented a series of three healthcare-related films in partnership with UW–Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and the School of Nursing along with UW Health and Unity

Health Insurance. The first series addressed how PTSD and veterans are depicted through key films over the decades: The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), The Deer Hunter (1978) and Least Among Saints (2012). Least Among Saints producer, James Hirsch, attended his film’s screening and conducted an informative Q&A. This programming will continue in the 2016-17 academic year with enthusiastic support from its partners.

Coloring Book Series In partnership with the “Wisconsin State Journal,” the Arts Institute engaged campus artists to create a series of coloring book pages that highlighted three iconic UW–Madison locations: Bascom Hall, Camp Randall Stadium and Memorial Union Terrace. The series was distributed in the Sunday paper during the month of May. The full-size pages included artwork by professors John Hitchcock (School of Education – Art Department) and Mark Nelson (School of Human Ecology – Design Studies Department) along with alumni and Comic Book Club organizer Jacob Turner and graduate students Joshua Duncan and KC Concilor.

Undergraduate and graduate students converted empty storefronts into pop-up exhibition spaces during the high-traffic week of the Wisconsin Film Festival to display their work. The exhibit included painting, drawing, sculpture and multi-media.

SPRUNG For two weeks in April and May, Art Department undergraduate and graduate students installed over a dozen sculptures in the Longenecker Gardens at the UW–Arboretum. Students utilized the natural landscape to investigate how the environment interacts with the art and the viewer. The Arboretum, Madison Arts Commission and Wisculpture also supported this effort.

Hector Aristizábal residency Internationally renowned Colombian theater artist Hector Aristizábal was an artist in residence for a week in the spring of 2016. During his residency, he led workshops on social justice and activism. The culminating event took place at Madison’s Memorial High School where he had a solo performance based on the torture he endured while living in Colombia. He also directed a performance from local high school students that highlighted their experiences when they toured Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). UW students also performed at the final event. His residency was presented by UW’s A.E. Havens Center and the Office of Multicultural Arts Initiatives (OMAI) with additional campus and community supporters.

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE: We will bring expertise and the creativity of students, faculty and staff into the community through outreach, internships and service learning We will expand, reinvent and revolutionize education across campus

University of Wisconsin–Madison Arts Institute Annual Report

COMMUNICATING SCIENCE AND THE ARTS “This is an exciting opportunity to work with colleagues in the health sciences on an important issue. The fact that we can bring theatre training techniques and utilize them to draw research that could be of impact to future medical professionals and theatre professionals with help us collect data that will be illuminating and inspirational. It is our hope that this study will lead us to future collaborations that will demonstrate the important link between the arts and medical sciences. —Professor, Theatre & Drama, Norma Saldivar

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE: We will create platforms for groundbreaking research and practice

In 2016, the Arts Institute made great strides in its dynamic Communicating Science and the Arts initiative with colleagues from across the sciences and health professions at the UW–Madison. Communicating Science and the Arts involves training for scientists and health professionals to communicate more effectively with each other, lay audiences, government officials, media and others outside their own discipline. This year the Arts Institute received a National Endowment for the Arts “Art Works” award of $18,000 to support research associated with the interdisciplinary Communicating Science and the Arts initiative. This study will examine whether healthcare trainees who learn improvisational theater techniques show greater empathy toward team members and others in a healthcare setting. This research will impact future courses and workshops taken by individuals in a variety of healthcare and science-based disciplines.

Notable achievements from the 2015-16 academic year also include: ff Research conducted with the Department of Medicine (Fall 2015) and the School of Nursing (Spring 2016) ff Medical Film Series (see page 21)  ff Continued courses in School of Veterinary Medicine with “Storytelling through Written Word”  ff Developing curriculum for Spring 2017 with the School of Nursing For information contact: Kate Hewson | Assistant Director of Academic Programs 608-263-9290 | kate.hewson@wisc.edu artsinstitute.wisc.edu/commsci.htm | continuingstudies.wisc. edu/collections/communicating-science/
