Art Daily: Soaring steel sculpture by preeminent American artist Mark di Suvero at Brooklyn Bridge Park



The First Art Newspaper on the Net Established in 1996: http://artdaily.org/index.asp

Saturday, December 17, 2011



BROOKLYN, N.Y.- Storm King Art Center, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy have announced the installation at the Park of a soaring steel sculpture by preeminent American artist Mark di Suvero. Organized and implemented by Storm King, working closely with the Park and the Conservancy, the presentation of the work, titled Yoga (1991), represents the first initiative in an anticipated ongoing arts program there.

The roughly thirty-foot-tall composition is sited on the Bridge View Lawn at the Park’s Pier 1, overlooking the East River. It comprises an I-beam-bent into a U-shape that rocks and pivots on a stainless-steel pole, itself topped by an O-shaped element. The sculpture creates changing shadows and perspectives as the I-beam variously points to the harbor, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Governors Island, and beyond, while the O may remind viewers of a ship’s po ...

Breaking Up Christmas!
Half a century ago, people in the mountains of the North Carolina and Southwest Virginia celebrated Christmas quite differently than the way most of us do now, holding two weeks of informal house parties that were filled with old time fiddle music, song and dance - a tradition they called "Breaking Up Christmas."  These Christmas parties ran through and ended with Old Christmas, January 6th.  Walt Michael & Company will "break up Christmas" with you this evening as they share their wide-ranging repertoire of tunes and songs that reflect the rich musical heritage of the Appalachians.  The traditional folk musics of Scotland, Ireland, England and Africa made their way into the remote mountain hollers, later emerging as an integrated American musical genre that continues to evolve. Traditional string band music is passed down from generation to generation., from singer to singer, from musician to musician.  In this great oral tradition, songs and tunes are evaluated and winnowed by time.  Memorable melodies and lyrics that withstand this test of time take their place among the venerable repertoire.  Welcome to an evening of old time music.  Let the season begin! 

Considered to be a virtuoso of tremendous influence in the revival of the hammered dulcimer, Walt's wide repertoire ranges from old-time Southern Appalachian, to Celtic, to folk, to breath-taking original compositions.  His various musical incarnations, including Bottle Hill, Michael, McCreesh & Campbell and Walt Michael & Co. have spanned over 35 years and taken him from the coal camps of Appalachia to the Closing Ceremonies of the 13th Olympic Winter Games in 1980, when 900 million world viewers heard his signature composition, Snowblind.  As a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist he has recorded sixteen albums and instructional videos, appeared at the White House, the Lincoln Center, and the Kennedy Center and toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe and the UK.  His music has been heard on ABC-TV, NBC's Tonight Show, Broadway, BBC, TNN, CBC, OLN and PBS.   Walt is the Artist in Residence at McDaniel College, as well as Founder and Executive Director of Common Ground on the Hill.

Westminster teen takes creative approach to helps restart veterans' lives

Westminster teen takes creative approach to helps restart veterans' lives



Westminster High School student Madeline White, 16, was fairly far from home Nov. 11, attending an event in Baltimore on Veterans Day.
But she was there, among some 300 attendees, sharing a view of "home" that could help homeless veterans across the state.
The event was "re-StART with Art," an art auction and gala at Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore to benefit Baltimore Station — a residential recovery program treats men, mostly war veterans, who battle homelessness, substance abuse and lack of job skills.
White was among many students throughout the region — most members of their schools' National Art Honor Society chapters — who contributed paintings and photos, as well as specially painted doors that symbolized doors to recovery for the homeless and addicted men.
