If you missed it, our August Spotlight on Arts & Culture WPKN 89.5FM program featuring a conversation on Museums of the Future with Kathy Maher, Executive Director of Bridgeport's Barnum Museum, you can hear it as a podcast here. Hear how P.T. Barnum in the early 19th-century was at the vanguard of imagining what "the museum" would look like (buying up part of the collection of Charles Willson Peale's Philadelphia Museum) and then imagining the role of entertainment in making the objects within the museum come alive. Even before a tornado and two hurricanes ravaged the Barnum Museum, hear how Kathy and her Board were focusing on new and innovative methods, integrating history, arts, science and technology to create a dynamic 21st century museum for the future. Hear about other museums on the same track and find out about a panel on this subject coming up at the Museums on the Move 100th Anniversary conference of the New England Museums Association in Stamford, November 7-9.

Peace by Piece: The Norwalk Community Quilt Project is an inter-generational after-school art program with the mission to mentor young people through the craft of quilt making. Participants range in age from 8 to 89. The group is sponsored by the Norwalk Housing Authority, which provides the workspace and storage at no cost. The Friends of the Norwalk Public Library acts as the sponsoring 501(c)(3) receiving and processing donations from individuals. The volunteer staff is made up of Lizzy Rockwell, and Anna Vecchia, assistant teacher. Communal works of art are created for fundraising purposes or as installations in public institutions. It was conceived in 2008 by Rockwell, as a way to enhance the lives of young people and elders in the city of Norwalk. Peace by Piece meetings are held twice a week, in the community room at Senior Court Housing complex. Youth quilters benefit from the attention and role modeling of their elders, as they develop strong character traits as volunteers in the community who beautify the city with their distinctive communal works of art. Older participants find their lives enriched in manifold ways through involvement with Peace by Piece. Lizzy was first asked to design a quilt made by Peace by Piece for The Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk, CT. Peace by Peace quilts also hang at Norwalk Community College, The Norwalk Public Library, Belden Branch and Sono Branch, and the Newfield Public Library in Bridgeport. Photograph above was taken at the Norwalk Public Library to mark the group's 10th anniversary in March, 2018. Lizzy Rockwell, a picture book author and illustrator, and Cultural Alliance member, is currently working on a children’s book based on this group called, The All Together Quilt, to be published by Random House in 2020. See Facebook page. Donations may be sent directly to Lizzy Rockwell here.

A new Kresge Foundation white paper on the state of Creative Placemaking, by researcher Maria Rosario Jackson, Ph.D., explores the value and current status of this growing field, and what it now needs to continue to flourish and have a meaningful impact on communities. Creative Placemaking and Expansion of Opportunity: Observations and Reflections offers ideas and a formulation of critical needs as the field develops. A key concern, Jackson points to, is the need for a clearer understanding of urban inequality (especially its sources and consequences). Creative Placemaking builds on a community’s cultural assets and leads to healthier places where all people, particularly those from historically marginal-ized communities, can thrive. At its best, creative placemaking elevates, shapes and transforms the physical, social, cultural and economic qualities of neighborhoods, especially when fueled by the imagination of community residents and stakeholders, artists, designers and culture bearers, working along with community developers, urban planners and those from other fields. As Creative Placemaking becomes more prevalent, social justice concerns such as gentrification, economic and cultural displacement, and cultural appropriation begin to intersect with the term. That leads to questions about values and ethical practices. If Creative Placemaking is to be understood as an instrument for greater equity and expansion of opportunity for vulnerable populations, what field developments are most essential? See the redacted six critical issues to be faced below, and read the short white paper here.


Using 12 measures in three rubrics, SMU's National Center for Arts Research (NCAR) recently published its 4th annual list of Top 40 Most Vibrant Arts Communities in America. Connecticut was again not represented on the list. NCAR uses the three rubrics of supply, demand, and public support for arts and culture on a per capita basis. Supply is measured as total number of arts providers; demand with measures of total nonprofit arts dollars in the community; and public support as state and federal arts funding. NCAR admits its measures of vibrancy "say nothing about artistic quality, or who participates in the arts, or the value or depth of the experience with art for any individual or community, or the many artistic and cultural offerings by non-arts organizations such as parks, military bases, hospitals, and libraries." NCAR will continue to add new rubrics and additional measures "as they become available on a national scale in order to capture the most complete and unbiased assessment of arts vibrancy." The Top 40 comprised the Top 20 Large Communities (over 1 million), the Top 10 Medium (100,000 to 1 million) and Top 10 Small Communities (20,000-100,000). 7 of the Top 20 large communities were in the Northeast (New York, Boston, Newark, Philadelphia, Cambridge, MA, Rochester, NY and Pittsburgh). Of the 10 Medium cities, Pittsfield, MA; and Burlington, VT, were Northeast; and of the 10 small communities, Bennington, VT, and Oneonta, NY, were included. Read the report here

From Grantmakers In the ArtsCarmen Graciela Díaz reports on the Queens Council on the Arts experience in writing their Cultural Equity statement: "Why do you need a cultural equity statement?" "Isn’t a mission statement enough?" Those are the questions Hoong Yee Lee Krakauer, executive director of the Queens Council on the Arts (QCA), used to introduce a post in which she lays out how and why QCA developed its cultural equity statement. The QCA, according to Krakauer, believes "progress towards a better world can be achieved when an organization takes practical steps forward, internally and externally, in addressing issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion." She takes the reader through the QCA's process in simple, graphic terms and explains how "as a result, every decision we make now reflects consideration of this statement whether it is about hiring, board recruitment, fundraising, community development, programming, or what we’re serving at our next reception." The post continues with some ideas on how to begin a conversation about what cultural equity means and how organizations can take their own steps to write their own cultural equity. See the post here.
