Gallery Night – Friday, July 3

Find the roundup for this Friday’s gallery night offerings here.

I think you need to be within a certain downtown area and be in an included art space to be considered officially part of “Gallery Night” as run by the Downtown Ithaca Alliance.  Many other art events/openings are scheduled on Gallery Night to take advantage of the crowds, but are not included in listings because of location or venue.  There are three such public art events/installations opening or being inaugurated this Friday:

Art in the Heart of the City, the outdoor public art collection, sponsored by Ithaca’s Public Art Commission and The Downtown Ithaca Alliance.  Opening reception is  from 5-8 pm at The Commons Amphitheatre. Four participating artists will be present.  At 6:30 local artist Rob Licht will offer a tour of the 2009 works, located all over downtown, from DeWitt Park to the Creek Walk and in-between.

Public Art Commission’s Green St. Windows installation by Brody Burroughs.  Not sure if there is an official opening or if the work is just being inaugurated.  Anyone have details?

to Let Art Program, curated by The Working Relationship and co-sponsored by The Downtown Ithaca Alliance and local landlords, installs mainly site-specific art works in vacant storefronts downtown.  Opening reception is 4-6pm at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on The Commons.  Walking tours of participating properties depart 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Participating collective, SP Weather Station delivers a talk, “Taxonomy of Taxonomies of Clouds,” in the amphitheater on The Commons at twilight, around 9pm.

FORUM: Art for Ithaca’s Future

An opportunity to voice your opinion about “new directions for the arts in downtown Ithaca”:

On Saturday, April 25th, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance invites community members of all ages to ART FOR A JUST & SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY, the theme for Art in the Heart of the City 2009 and the DIA’s contribution to Ithaca’s Earth Day ’09 celebration.

The event opens with a 12:00 Noon Parade for the Earth on the Ithaca Commons, followed at 1 pm by a Forum on Exploring Directions for the Arts in Downtown Ithaca in the Tompkins County Library Borg- Warner Room.

Everyone is invited to gather for the Parade at 11:00 a.m. The Parade will start from the Bernie Milton Pavilion at 12:00 noon.

The Exploring Directions Forum continues the exploration of a role for the arts in future downtown development which was launched last fall, as part of the DIA’s 2008 Art in the Heart of the City public art program.

Alastair Noble, internationally-renowned artist and former Cornell faculty member, will open with an overview of how artists working in public spaces are engaging sustainability themes. Kathy Bruce, whose bamboo and morning glory Graces were featured in Art in the Heart of the City 2008, will then draw on her own work to show how one artist might interpret Ithaca’s 2009 theme of Art for a Just & Sustainable Community. The Forum will conclude with an exploration of possibilities for creating a dynamic future for the arts in downtown Ithaca.

Specifically, panelists and participants will be asked to consider three key questions:

1. How should the arts factor into thinking about re-doing the Ithaca Commons?

2. What might ‘iconic art’ for downtown Ithaca look like?

3. How can the Downtown Ithaca Alliance engage local artists and the broader community in making public art a more prominent part of downtown life?
