Asolo Rep Receives $100,000 Grant from Barancik Foundation

Asolo Repertory Theatre has announced that it is the recipient of a $100,000 grant from the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. The grant will provide key support for Asolo Rep's 2018-19 season, which kicks off in November with The Music Man, directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and starring Broadway song and dance man Noah Racey. It will also support Asolo Rep's Access to the Arts Programs: Main Stages and the annual fall Shakespeare tour. Main Stages provides area students with the opportunity to see a world-class production at Asolo Rep. Through the fall Shakespeare tour, live theatre is brought to the students at schools and community venues throughout Florida. Both Main Stages and tour performances are supplemented with teaching artist-guided workshops, study guides and other materials to enhance students' experience before and after the performance. The Barancik Foundation grant will also help to underwrite the cost of the annual FSU/A solo Conservatory for Actor Training London Study Program. Each summer, the rising third-year Conservatory MFA students spend six weeks in London. When they return from this enriching training, they become the acting company for the annual Shakespeare tour and then join Asolo Rep's main stage acting company for repertory season.

Ringling College Wins Big at International Animation Contest

Competing against 219 teams from 49 schools (that's 1095 students) representing nine countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, USA, Thailand, Czech Republic, Germany and the UK), Ringling College of Art and Design students took the top three places in the 24 Hours International Animation Challenge. Now in its 16th year, the contest for students challenges its participants to create a 30-second film based on a given theme in a designated 24-hour period. This year, the films had to depict a strong point of view educating an audience about the need to have empathy and to animate an experience that will help convey to the audience what it is really like to speak their truth. Teams work from their home school and submit a YouTube link of their films before the deadline. They are then are judged by industry artists. First place went to Haeri Cho, Jerry Jaimes, Beatriz Correia Lima, Ioana Oprescu and Jingyun Zhou for th eir film, Hibaji, second place went to Zac Miller, Doug Alberts, Noah Selbitschka, Lauren Cash and Zach Hartman for their film, Bring the Glue, and third place went to Livia Lenhoff, Zoë Miolla, Paul Detling, Andrés Guerrero (CA) and Mitchell Blass for The Ani-Mates

North Trail's Ringling College Braces for Second ArtWalk of the Season

Posted by ntadmin in Ringling College , North Trail , Art Walk

The Ringling College of Art and Design campus overflows this Friday, October 12, with an ArtWalk from 4pm to 7pm featuring the opening of seven new exhibitions. From faculty art to student creations, featured photographers, college-wide collaborations and even a former New York Times journalist looking to activate local democracy through art, folks may just have to run if they’re going to see it all.

Technically, the day begins at 11am, when journalist-turned-artist-for-democracy Sheryl Oring will be on campus with her “I Wish to Say” performance, seeing the artist adopt the role of a secretary out of the 1960s, armed with a typewriter so students and other passersby can dictate their own postcard to the president. It’s something she’s done since 2004, hoping to activate democratic impulses in her audiences, especially students. “That’s been important to me because young people sometimes feel like they’re not listened to,” says Oring. “Maybe they’ll actually write a letter to one of their elected officials or take action in some small way in their community.”

In the Basch Visual Arts Center, audiences will see selections from Oring’s past projects, as well as a new series incorporating statements ripped from news articles about the #MeToo movement and another new series exhibiting past postcards sent to President Trump through Oring in 2017.

North Trail's Arts Alliance Calls All Sarasota Sherlocks!

Calling All Sarasota Sherlocks
Philip Lederer, Phil.Lederer@srqme.com

In a town full of theaters, galleries and all sorts of indoor artistic enterprises, it can be all too easy to overlook all the public art dotting the streets, populating the parks and even adorning the architecture. “We take it for granted,” says Jim Shirley, executive director for the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County. And to draw public eyes to public art, the Alliance has this month launched a Sarasota Public Art Scavenger Hunt, inviting art enthusiasts of all ages to join the hunt and take a moment to stop and smell the statuary.

Free and open to the public, the rules of the scavenger hunt are simple, and the Alliance has taken care to make the adventure accessible to near everyone who wants to participate. The hunt begins with the hints—numbering nine and available via the Arts and Cultural Alliance website. Centered in Downtown Sarasota, the hunt begins at Five Points Park, with the entire journey taking place within a single square mile, before returning to Five Points Park for the final clue. Contained by design, the scavenger hunt requires no additional transportation once begun and should accommodate even short legs that tire easily or dodgy knees that can’t handle an afternoon marathon.

North Trail's Asolo Rep Unveils New Website

Asolo Repertory Theatre Unveils New Website

Asolo Repertory Theatre has proudly launched a new, completely redesigned website. As the theatre embarks on its 60th season, this new website is designed to provide patrons with a much-improved, intuitive web experience. The newly designed site features a streamlined ticket-buying platform, with an easy-to-read and navigate calendar feature. This is particularly helpful given Asolo Rep's rotating repertory producing model, with up to three plays rotating on and off the Mertz stage, two often on the same day, throughout the season and another production running in the Cook Theatre in April. The website will also offer behind-the-scenes content, including video, photos, casting, and insight into the world of each play to enrich patrons' experience in the theatre. Learning more about the theater's various outreach programs has also been simplified, with an easy-to-navigate drop-down menu highlighting ways to engage beyond the stage.
