ICYMI: ARTSblog in August
I've been trying to take the time at the end of each month to review some posts that you might have missed, and since August is a particularly vacation-filled month, I figured why not start now?
In case you missed it (ICYMI), here are some highlights from ARTSblog in August:
- Jessica Stern from Business for Culture and the Arts in Portland, OR explained how a local insurance company tapped the talents of its employees to present an art show.
- Randy Cohen unveiled two new indicators as part of our Local Arts Index. They help you compare how the performing arts and arts education fare in your county against your neighbors or others across the country.
- Arts Education Council member Jessica Wilt honored the memory of fellow council member Alyx Kellington who passed away in late July.
- Americans for the Arts announced a call for session proposals for our 2012 Annual Convention in Pittsburgh.
- I found a video providing a tour of the public art and transportation project taking place in St. Paul, MN.
- Arts for All's Laura Zucker shared lessons learned as her Los Angeles-based organization celebrated its tenth anniversary.
- One of our many summer interns, Victoria Ford, ended her run of blog posts with a second look at the first question she posed - Why Am I and What Difference Does It Make?
Don't forget to check ARTSblog often for new content, as we try to publish at least one new post each day, and keep an eye out for our second Arts Education Blog Salon the week of September 10!
