2012 - 2013 Annual Report
fiscal year 2012/2013 Reflections As part of a vibrant community arts center, we at 171 embrace every opportunity to help people uncover the power and possibilities waiting to be discovered through participation in the arts. As we celebrate record numbers of people through our doors one might think we’ve reached the pinnacle of what our founders dreamed for 171 when they founded the center, forty-six years ago. What we believe is that they did not see a summit, but a desire for 171 to stand the test of time. Today 171 enjoys a regional reputation as a premier provider of arts education; dedicated to providing life-long enrichment by delivering impactful arts opportunities.
You don’t get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful: yourself. - Alan Alda
171’s exceptional faculty members – some of the region’s finest dancers, musicians, visual artists and more – continue this tradition of excellence by sharing their passion and engaging students. In Fiscal Year 2012-13, they taught 2,687 students – the largest enrollment in 171’s history. Together, these individuals spent thousands of hours in classes encompassing all disciplines, from contemplative landscape and figurative painting, to Hip Hop’s high-energy choreography. This year, in order to support the needs of our teaching artists and provide a better experience, 171’s Personnel Committee undertook the major project of reviewing 171’s current method of employee classification, in an attempt to better understand Federal/State laws and to ensure our compliance with current practices and laws. The Committee facilitated the successful transition of more than 50 faculty members from contractor to employee status. All faculty are now supported by standardized employment practices and updated personnel policies. Our organizational journey has spanned 46 years. As we continue to build momentum, we remain steadfast in our belief that the integration of arts and culture into daily life is critically important. 171 is built on strong relationships, and our success depends on our ability to bring people and organizations together in support of arts and culture. We thank each and every one of you, as visitors to the gallery, students in classes, supporters of our mission, and advocates for the essential role 171 plays in our lives.
Lynn Dates, Executive Director
From the Board President Dear friends of 171, As we finish yet another year of wide-ranging programs and entertaining events and exhibits, I am proud to say that we remain financially healthy and vibrant. Our faculty, staff, and students continued to sustain 171’s dynamic culture and generous donors sponsored new events. While we continued our ever-popular programs and events, we also recognize that federal and state support of the arts is changing both in terms of grants to not-for-profits and in art and music offerings in schools. So we began exploring new ways to support our mission with programming changes and new ideas for fund development. We look forward to your continued support and feedback as we update our offerings and remain your community arts center! Sincerely,
Ann Nicholson, Board President 2012 - 2013 Annual Report
