Arts for Learning Connecticut (AFLCT) has named John-Michael Parker of Madison, CT, to lead the organization as Executive Director. John-Michael follows Eileen Carpinella, who served as ED for 23 years. John-Michael was selected for his outstanding non-profit leadership, communication and fundraising skills, as well as for his experience as a professional artist. Graduating in 2010 from Yale University, he joined classmates to form The Future Project, an education non-profit startup in New York City, with the mission of bringing social and emotional learning opportunities to high-school students. He became Vice President of Development for The Future Project, which grew to serve more than 25,000 students across the country. Also a talented musician and songwriter, John-Michael performed and toured as a frontman with the indie band, Great Caesar, including at TEDxHollywood. In 2019 Arts for Learning Connecticut celebrated 40 years as the largest arts-in-education organization in the state, serving more than 260,000 children and families. John-Michael will serve on the Governor’s Subcommittee, Education and STEAM, Council on Women and Girls. He currently also serves on the Board of the Madison Youth and Family Services and The Women and Family Life Center. Founded at the University of Bridgeport in 1979, AFLCT has grown from 10 musicians performing at nearby schools to a roster of more than 100 performing and teaching artists at schools, libraries and community centers around Connecticut. John-Michael plans to broaden the organiz-ation’s financial resources, nurture the outstanding roster of artists and staff, and work with Connecticut's leaders to further grow the non-profit.
Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) is the Business Improvement District for the Park City, with the mission to promote the preservation and development of the downtown business district; make the area more attractive and accessible; and enhance the public perception of downtown Bridgeport through overseeing and managing its appearance, security, and cleanliness. Since 2018, it has been working on a campaign with The Bananaland to show the impact of its work on the downtown and to demonstrate the depth, diversity and vibrancy of the Park City. The concept for the campaign is Colorful Bridgeport, which is about celebrating the full spectrum of Downtown and its beautiful and vibrant overlapping forms, shapes, and colors that intersect through its people, streets, places, and spaces. Each month celebrates a different color; this month the color is green. See the energetic video celebrating this fact. A new DSSD website with the Colorful Bridgeport theme will be launched August 22.
Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo’s fundraising efforts to create a new habitat for its Amur tigers received a big boost on July 29, Global Tiger Day, with a pledge for $2.5 million from the City of Bridgeport. Bridgeport Mayor Joseph P. Ganim, a longtime Zoo champion, announced the city’s contribution in a press conference in front of the Amur tiger habitat and two of the Zoo’s three Amur tigers.  Ken Kochiss represented his sister, Pam Hope (Kochiss) Werth at the event, the Zoo’s first donor for the new habitat. Zoo Director Gregg Dancho, members of the Board of Directors, volunteers, and Zoo guests attended the special ceremony at noon. After the birth of four extremely endangered Amur tiger cubs in November, 2017, two of which survived, the Zoo began a campaign to create a new, more spacious home for its valuable tigers. Pamela Hope (Kochiss) Werth first stepped forward with a $1 million pledge for a new tiger habit-at. The city’s contribution will allow architects' renderings to be finalized, and a plan for construction to begin, part of the Zoo’s goals for its 100th anniversary in 2022. The Zoo hopes to begin construction in spring 2020. Above: Dancho, Mayor Ganim and Kochiss.
The Ferguson and Pequot Libraries are two of 13 libraries that have created Art Spaces in Fairfield County Libraries, a consortium of 13 libraries that offer curated visual art exhibitions. The consortium is initiating its exhibition season with “Art & Text,”   a united exhibition featuring the work of local and regional artists.  Each library within the consortium will highlight one or more artists, whose work reflects their unique perspectives on the exhibition’s theme.  Through mixed media ranging from sculpture and painting to graphics, each library’s exhibition aims to promote awareness of visual arts in the libraries of Fairfield County, as well as foster a connection between the community it serves and the arts. Pequot Library has a call for artists for two related exhibitions, one for adults and one for "22 under 22" Oct 19-27. Ferguson Library's Art+Text exhibit will run Sept. 12-Jan. 16, 2020, and will be curated by the Stamford Art Association. Libraries
participating are: Bethel Library, Cyrenius H. Booth Library, Fairfield Public Library,  Ferguson Library, New Canaan Library, Norwalk Public Library, Pequot Library , Plumb Memorial Library (Shelton), Ridgefield Library, Stratford Library, The Westport Library, Weston Public Library, and Wilton Library.
INTEMPO has made great strides toward becoming the predominant provider of afterschool instrumental music education for children from Stamford, Norwalk, and neighboring Fairfield County towns. This summer, thanks to seed funding from SpreadMusicNow and an MPower grant from The  Sphinx Organization, INTEMPO has expanded its coverage with the launch of an intercultural music program at a second Title 1 public school (Stillmeadow Elementary), designed for children who are new arrivals in the United States. The  program addresses the needs of these students through an innovative curriculum that emphasizes learning English through the study of music. If you might be interested in assisting INTEMPO in this effort you can schedule a site visit; become an INTEMPO ambassador, by telling  a friend about INTEMPO's work on social media; or  by making a tax-deductible donation. Click image to see a 2-minute video about the program.
The Westport Arts Center has received a gift of $500,000 from Daniel Edward Offutt, III, just as the Center expands its programming, reach and physical footprint, opening its doors in September as MoCA Westport. The foyer inside MoCA Westport’s 19 Newtown Turnpike building will bear the name of Daniel Edward Offutt, III, honoring his spirit of philanthropy and love of life. The foyer will include the museum’s reception desk, donor wall and projection wall that will announce upcoming programs and exhibitions. Born in Oakland, MD, in 1931, Mr. Offutt attended the University of Maryland and earned an MBA at Columbia University. He enjoyed a successful career as a stock market investor, and retired to Weston, CT, where he resided for 30+ years. His farm featured his own whimsical, metal sculptures and a beautiful tobacco barn he moved from a property upstate and reassembled with friends. Daniel Edward Offutt, III Private Foundation Trust trustee, Richard Orenstein, said "Dan, being an amateur artist himself, wanted to support education and art institutions. His gift was inspired by the direction the Westport Arts Center is headed, and we’re pleased that Dan’s legacy can support that growth."
Westport Country Playhouse has been awarded a grant of $20,600 from Connecticut Humanities for education and community engagement programs surrounding the October production of Mlima’s Tale, written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, and directed by Playhouse artistic director Mark Lamos.  The series of community engagement events to examine the work on stage will include symposia, panel discussions, a film screening, and a talkback with artists involved. Said Michael Barker, Westport Country Playhouse managing director, “Connecticut Humanities’ help allows us to offer numerous opportunities to convene and explore important topics the play addresses, including the international ivory trade, animal conservation, and humanity’s impact on the environment.” Mlima’s Tale is a powerful, theatrical fable about a magnificent and beloved Kenyan elephant hunted for his coveted ivory tusks. As traffickers maneuver the illicit ivory market, the animal’s invincible spirit follows their path of desire, greed, crime, and corruption.
The Westport Woman’s Club has announced that it is accepting donations of clothing for its October 25-27 2019 Clothing Tag Sale. Tax-deductible donations of new or gently-worn women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, as well as accessories (shoes, handbags, scarves, hats, jewelry, etc), are now welcomed through October 18. You can drop off donated items any weekday (9am-12pm, 1pm-4pm) at the Westport Woman’s Club (44 Imperial Avenue, Westport, CT). Funds raised from this Clothing Tag Sale will help support the Food Closet for the Town of Westport, many local charities throughout Fairfield County, and need-based student scholarships. 
An occasional section with outstanding press reviews of members' events
Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum: Harmony Hammond: Material Witness, Five Decades of Art. 
"Ms. Hammond’s art has beauty too, but of a prickly, irritant kind: it’s burlap — sometimes sandpaper — as opposed to silk. No surprise that, in a market-driven art world resistant to what can’t be classified and resentful of work that refuses to ingratiate, the spotlight has been a long time coming her way. At the Aldrich, it shines."
- Holland Cotter, The New York Times
City Lights Gallery: SameSex 2019
"Like the photographs, SAMESEX bares all without ever seeming overwrought. Its greatest strength may be its role as a group show, where voices emerge in a jumble, and get behind a narrative of acceptance and visibility. Each offers something slightly different: a reframed viewpoint, a personal anecdote put to paper or canvas, a vignette or five that dive into love, sex, joy, and beauty. As they whisper and chatter with each other and with viewers from the walls, City Lights seems to speak with a united voice too. Welcome, the gallery says from every single vantage point. We’re so glad you’re here. Come exactly as you are."

The stately Sanborn building, a former library, bank and community center at the busy intersection of Fairfield Avenue and State Street in Bridgeport, was demolished by its owner August 1. The demolition occurred despite growing public opposition from many seeking a way to restore and reuse the local, 100-year-old landmark with its large porch, white columns and cupola, as well as a much-loved Puerto Rican heritage mural created when the building was used by ASPIRA: a Puerto Rican/Latinx youth development nonprofit.  The preservation campaign launched last summer when owner Burton Stevens of Woodbury agreed to tear the building down as part of a pending sale of the property to Richard Korris, a Hartford-based retail developer, who is planning to build an auto parts store and a drive-through coffee shop. The demolition occurred despite Korris not yet having received approval for contested variances it is seeking from Bridgeport's Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). Prominent city developer Gary Flocco had met with Stevens and Korris about taking over the sale, but met with resistance. U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, who at one time sat on the ASPIRA board spoke with the key players seeking ways to preserve the building. But Stevens expressed frustration that he had not managed to rent out the building, while paying hefty annual tax bills. City Councilman Peter Spain, a leading and vocal opponent of Korris’ plans, commented: "Intelligent developers who come with some respect for the community, have some basic taste, and who know what they’re doing, could have restored and made the Sanborn into a financially feasible adaptive reuse success.” Hearst CT Media associate editor and columnist Dan Haar wrote in the CT Post "The building forms a visual nexus, a touchstone of memory and community life, for a 100-year-old neighbor-hood of houses, churches, small commercial buildings, an old gas station, re-purposed factory buildings, a cemetery down Mountain Grove Avenue and the oasis of a small, triangular park just beyond the Sanborn’s front door.” For Haar, this episode "represents an economic and policy failure, a building with huge value for the community but little for the owners." Frank Borres, a longtime Bridgeport resident and community leader, said the problem lies partly in not having a preservation commission that preserves buildings like the Sanborn, nor a design commission"When those things don’t exist in the community, this is what happens."   Spain is now planning to fix these lapses: "How can we restart the now-defunct Bridgeport Historic Preservation Board (see City of Bridgeport ordinances chapter 2.62), get the mayor to appoint an independent and qualified city historian, publish an online inventory of historic buildings citywide and an ongoing strategic plan and report for employing experts in the preservation field to consult the city on identifying our priority historic properties for registration and integrating these efforts into our economic development future?” Stay tuned.

The United States Senate voted August 1 to confirm Mary Anne Carter as chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.  Carter had served as acting chairman of the agency since June 5, 2018 and becomes the Arts Endowment’s 12th chairman since its inception in 1965. Americans for the Arts President and CEO Robert L. Lynch commented, "From inspiring thousands of arts administrators and supporters in cities and states across America, to representing the United States abroad in demonstrating the importance of collaboration and communication across cultures at the International Federation of Arts Council and Cultural Agencies conference in Kuala Lumpur, Mary Anne understands the inherent value of the arts, the importance of using the arts to help enhance quality of life, and the transformative power it has to individuals as well as to places. Americans for the Arts is grateful to have a partner who shares our steadfast commitment to providing access to the arts for all Americans, and we look forward to working with Mary Anne in the coming years.”  Since arriving at the agency, Carter has pushed to make the National Endowment for the Arts more accessible to the American people, directing an expansion of Creative Forces and bolstering many of its national initiatives, including Shakespeare in American Communities, NEA Big Read, Poetry Out Loud, and the Jazz Masters and National Heritage Fellowships. To further expand the reach of the Arts Endowment, Carter has held recent public meetings of the National Council on the Arts at locations outside the agency’s offices (in West Virginia, and in Detroit). Prior to her appointment, Carter was engaged in public policy analysis, issue tracking, and corporate and campaign communications through her work as a public affairs consultant. During her time at the Arts Endowment, she has demonstrated that lessons learned in her prior professional life are effective tools in directing the work of an agency dependent upon the support and confidence of Congress. Her knowledge and genuine love for the arts are rooted at the most personal of levels—through the learning differences initially observed in her daughter at age seven. This challenge led Carter to schools that employ the arts as a teaching method in every class, making the learning process both productive and enjoyable for her daughter. Carter understands the power of the arts, as she witnesses that power every day.

The CT Office of the Arts (COA) offers Arts Learning Presentation Grants to encourage opportunities for learners of all ages. The grants support presenters in providing arts access/exposure experiences for CT citizens, especially those who might not otherwise be able to enjoy them.

Experiences may include field trips (within CT), school or classroom visits, performances, informances, lecture demonstrations, etc., by artists or artist groups, experts, or arts providers. Applicants can apply once in a funding year but can request support for more than one experience (e.g. 1 fall and 1 winter) with a limit of a total of $1,000.

IMLS Inspire! Grants for Small Museums is a special initiative of the Museums for America Program. This special initiative is designed to inspire small museums to apply for and implement projects that address priorities identified in their strategic plan. IMLS invites applications that focus on providing rich learning experiences for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances; supporting partnerships aimed at assessing and addressing the needs of their communities; strengthening the role of museums as trusted stewards of the collections in their care; and/or expanding access to collections and associated resources. Inspire! has three project categories: Lifelong Learning;   Community Anchors and Catalysts; and Collections Stewardship and Public Access. Projects may be structured at any of several stages of maturity: exploratory, piloting, scaling, or mainstreaming. A proposed project’s activities may be brand new to the institution, or they may implement learnings, perspectives, or competencies acquired during a previous project. A project may be an effort to intensify the impact of an approach that has been tested and found to be effective, or it may be structured as an opportunity to expand a function or activity that has been deemed successful.

Claire Axelrad in her Where Have all the Donors Gone? GuideStar Blog article examines trends in giving and how we should react. She cites two recent funding reports:
• The Fundraising Effectiveness Project [FEP] Q1 2019 Fundraising Report.
• The Giving USA 2019 Report.
First, highlights from the FEP, compiling giving data from 20,000+ nonprofits in the U.S. for Q1 2019
• New donor acquisition –5%
• Total donors –7%
• Revenue –2%
• New donor retention –5%
• Repeat donor retention –6%
• Overall retention –9%
• Recaptured lapsed donors  –1.8%
• Donors giving less than $250 who upgraded their gifts  +2.7%
• Donors giving $250-999 who made a first gift in this range –1.0%
• Donors giving $1000+ who made a first gift in this range –2.8%
Second, Giving USA, the most comprehensive report of its kind in America: • Total giving ($427.71 billion) +0.7%
• Giving adjusted for inflation –1.7%
• Giving as percentage of GDP (2.1%) -0%
• Giving by individuals as % of total giving (68%) –1%
• Giving by foundations as % of total giving (18%) +7.3%
• Giving by corporations as % of total giving (5%) +5.4%
Despite the red ink Axelrad is sanguine about the numbers and is buoyed by the fact foundation giving increased, much of it from family foundations. She advocates self-examination, analyzing your own fundraising data and determining to be more pro-active: "Increase your fundraising and marketing expenses to assure you get your piece of the fundraising pie." More advice:
• Target giving from individuals (still 68% of all giving).is your best bet. If you don’t have a robust individual giving program you don’t have a sustainable fundraising program.
• Target foundations as your second best bet (this includes family and community foundations)
• Target corporations last.

The New England Museum Association's Curators and Registrars & Collection Care Specialists Professional Affinity Groups are presenting an all-day workshop on what do you do when something in your collection might not belong to you. Understanding Repatriation and Restitution will discuss the nuts and bolts of repatriation and restitution - processes of returning the control of cultural property or ancestors to the people they were stolen from in the past. Presenters will include experts in NAGPRA (the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act). Attendees will also hear from those with experience in repatriation and restitution processes that don't fall under NAGPRA (related to Native or international materials) including work that's been done around artifacts taken from Benin in a British attack in 1897. This workshop is for you if your collection has questionable provenance, if you are just getting started addressing these issues, or if you would like to learn more. The discussion will also be helpful if you've started the process. The workshop will include presentations, a panel discussion, and small-group breakout sessions. Registration Fees:
