NEWS: ARTicles

The National Association of Federally Impacted Schools reported on the effect of the sequestration of 45 school districts that receive what is known as ‘impact aid.’ Impact aid is provided by the federal government to schools that educate children who live on Indian reservations, military bases or in low-income housing. The government assistance is intended to make up for decreased property taxes in school systems located on federal land. In total, the more than 1,300 schools that receive impact aid will get $60 million less than expected this year. Schools are dealing with the cuts by deferring maintenance or technology purchases, eliminating staff, increasing class sizes, reducing professional development and cutting back on extracurricular programs or transportation routes. Four districts eliminated programs such as art, music, physical education or field trips for the current school year.
New York City artist Adarsh Alphons wants to remedy the gap in art classes and public education, while simultaneously restoring youth programming libraries, where budget cuts have eliminated thousands of hours of programming. His organization, Project Art, is turning the library into a studio where low-income children can take art classes. “A lot of public school kids in Harlem are still sent to the libraries after school where there are no activities,” says Alphons.
Discussions about having high school students create a public art project started more than a year ago in Lake Zurich, Illinois. More than 20 students in the district’s now-graduated Advanced Placement studio art class created a 40 foot mural on a village parks department wall. Now it's hoped the high school can deliver more public art to Lake Zurich. "It's through these types of projects you're able to communicate with the stakeholders at all levels," high school art teacher Matt Winkelman said. "Many small towns have used murals as a way to share history, affirm heritage and enliven public life," said local art historian Olivia Gude. "I would hope that every suburban town thinks about how public art, especially by its own residents, can contribute a sense of vitality to public space."

NEWS: DOWNTOWN ALLIANCE Release 2012 Economic benchmark report

DOWNTOWN ALLIANCE Release 2012 Economic benchmark report
Annual study shows a strong year for the downtown economy, highlights new investment in the urban center

Salt Lake City (July 17, 2013) – The Downtown Alliance and global real estate firm, CBRE, Inc., released the annual Economic Benchmark Report on Tuesday, July 16 at the Inaugural Downtown Symposium. The report presents facts about the downtown economy for stakeholders, property owners, civic leaders and residents to help gauge opportunities for improvement and growth within downtown.

Economic indicators in the study include: infill development, retail, employment and wages, office and housing market conditions. The impact from entertainment, culture, conventions and tourism is also highlighted. This edition of the benchmark study, recently cited in a New York Times article, collects historic data to highlight trends and growth within the 1.08 square mile district, with a focus on the 2012-2013 budget year.

“Salt Lake City’s commercial real estate market continues to reflect a strong local economy. Healthy job growth is creating a substantial amount of demand for office space, and this growth is expected to continue, resulting in a very positive outlook for the office market,” said Mark Bouchard, Senior Managing Director, CBRE.
“With regard to the retail market, the addition of City Creek has created renewed vitality along Main Street, attracting new retailers to downtown. As one of the few areas that can accommodate large amounts of near-term growth, the outlook for downtown is very bright indeed.”

An important fact highlighted in the Times article, gleaned from this study, is the impact of the $1.5 billion City Creek Center mixed-use development project. In its inaugural year, the center injected $209 million in sales to the downtown economy, resulting in a 36% increase in retail spending.

According to the report, one of the indicators of success in a downtown area is infill development, which helps increase traffic congestions, save open space and promote vibrancy and density. In 2012, infill development continued at unprecedented levels. Total project value either under construction or set to break ground in 2013 is over $793.6 million. "We appreciate what Salt Lake City has done to support development and encourage investment in our downtown,” said Jason Mathis, Downtown Alliance Executive Director. “We share a common vision in the redevelopment of surface parking lots and increased urban density, a vision that will continue to progress by making development easier and more profitable in downtown."

Continued investment in downtown is expected. Projects such as 101 Tower, 111 South Main, several housing developments and The New Performing Arts Center are in various stages of planning and construction. Potential projects, such as a large convention center hotel, could increase investment in downtown, as well as bolster employment and tourism.

Madani Opening Recpetion @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (SLC: Oct 4)

UMOCA Announces the 2013 Doctorow $15,000 Prize Winner
Solo Show Opening Reception OCT 4, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Utah Museum of Contemporary Art and the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation are pleased to announce that L.A. based artist Tala Madani is the recipient of the 2013 Catherine Doctorow Prize for Contemporary Painting.  In addition to a $15,000 cash award, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) will host a solo exhibition of Madani’s artwork from October 4, 2013 through January 4, 2014.
Maggie Willis, Interim Director of UMOCA states: “By being the home of the Catherine Doctorow Prize for Contemporary Painting, the residents of Utah are given an incredible opportunity to experience cutting-edge work from the nation’s leading painters. The engaging quality of Tala Madani’s work is certain to initiate dialogue among our visitors; I am thrilled that UMOCA will present Madani’s work this fall.”
Tala Madani (b. 1981 in Iran) creates drawings, paintings, and animations depicting humorously grotesque scenarios of male vulnerability and fraternal idiocy. Merging the satire of R. Crumb with the palette of Morris Louis, the language of her paintings oscillates between figuration and abstraction, seriousness and comedy.
It is this passionate dedication to a visionary practice in painting that exemplifies the spirit of the Catherine Doctorow Prize.

Suzanne Larson, daughter of Catherine Doctorow, remarked: "Catherine Doctorow was a prolific contemporary painter in the 1950's and 1060's. All of her family at the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation are very proud to have established the Catherine Doctorow Prize at UMOCA. We know she would be delighted that her love of painting is creating a place today for emerging and mid-career artists to flourish."

The process that led to the selection of Madani’s work was a rigorous one.  UMOCA received nominations from leading curators, critics, gallerists, historians, and educators around the country.  The nominations were then submitted for review by two separate juries. The finalist jury included:

Adam Bateman- Artist and Curator. His sculptures and sculptural videos, photos, installations, and drawings have been exhibited internationally and across the United States. He is also the director and curator at CUAC, an artist-run, non-profit gallery which aims to connect the international contemporary art community with Utah's local art community. 
Szanne Larson- Executive Director of the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation since 2010.  Suzanne is a sculptor/glass artist, giving her an understanding of the importance of supporting the arts and the critical relationship between arts education and mental health. She has worked in corporate and government arenas gaining an awareness of the time consuming complexities of obtaining funding. Suzanne intends to keep DFF approachable and communicative to increase the efficiency with which the Foundation operates and help grantees to do what they do best.
Paul (Monty) Paret- Associate Professor of Art History and Associate Dean of the Honors College at the University of Utah, where he writes and teaches on modern and contemporary art and visual culture. His research concerns the Bauhaus, the relationship of sculpture to the visual and material culture of modernity, and issues of land use in contemporary art.
Chris Wiley- Artist, writer and curator.  As a writer, he is a regular contributor to Frieze, ArtForum.com, and Kaleidoscope, where he is also an Editor-at-Large.  As a curator, he has worked on numerous exhibitions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, and most recently as a curatorial advisor and head catalog writer for the 55th Venice Biennale.  He is represented by Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in New York.
