Principal: Rene Soto

The Rene Soto Gallery, opening this Saturday May 26 at One Wall Street, Norwalk, is the manifestation of the long-held dream of artist Rene Soto to run a space that could provide a stage for unrecognized artists of outstanding talent to exhibit their art. The gallery will sell art produced by both established and lesser known artists, but will also be a place to promote art in all its forms – painting, sculpture, music, face and body painting, painting with hands, experimental art, poetry and photography. It will also house art demonstrations, classes, and other forms of art education. It has a special mission to highlight outstanding artists from other countries, and endeavors to be a center for cultural exchange and learning. The gallery opens with an exhibition of paintings by Jose Miguel Munoz, who, born and raised in Guatemala,  studied architecture at Rafael Landivar University, where he began his career as a professional artist. Principal, Rene Soto is himself an artist from Guatemala, who found his voice once he arrived in the U.S. Rene established himself in Stamford as both a practicing professional artist and arts educator. He has taught at Stamford's King School as well as at Studio Arte in Norwalk. He has worked closely with many artists from Latin America, notably Venezuelan artist Angel Meries, Colombian artist Favio Meza, and Argentinian artist Marta Beltrano. In 2014 and 2015, Rene was awarded the Barreto’s Scholarship, enabling him to study at the Greenwich Art Society. In Stamford, he created “Guatemala Everywhere,” a project that opened the door for other artists from Guatemala to exhibit their art throughout Stamford. In addition to supporting numerous local nonprofit organizations (Stamford Senior Center, The Ronald McDonald House, Caring with Grace, Domestic Violence Center of Stamford, and the Kids Draw Free Program) he is the founder and publisher of Latincolors Magazine, a bi-monthly promoting Latin culture, values, education and community, published in Spanish and English, promoting the art and supports artists of all nationalities and tells the stories of leaders making a difference in their communities. See the Rene Soto Gallery website, Facebook page, and Twitter and Instagram feeds.

The Westport Artists Collective was created in 2014 by Westport Arts Center Artistic Director, Helen Klisser During, with five founding local artists (pictured above): Nina Bentley, Miggs Burroughs, Duvian Montoya, Jahmane West, and Tammy Winser. Together, they developed the Collective to provide a place for artists to come together and create their own community. Today it is a vibrant group of some 150 artists that shares, discusses, and creates dynamic experiences for the Fairfield County community. Open to all active artists in pursuit of expanding their careers and in developing a strong, diverse arts community, the Collective brings together various creative practices in unique monthly forums hosted by the Westport Arts Center. It stages Pop-Up exhibitions and an array of other stimulating experiences that are open to the public. Monthly Meetings include open art discussions and critiques. Pop-Up exhibitions are held between curated shows at the Westport Arts Center 3 to 4 times a year. 15 artists are chosen for each Pop-Up by the artists exhibited in the previous show, with an informal jurying by the founding members. Each show also features two local student artists, high school or college age, selected by a founding member. Pop-Up installation typically takes place on Tuesdays with opening receptions on Thursdays, and artists' talks on the following Saturday. Currently the Collective has a Pop-Up show in New Haven, at 96 Orange Street, in conjunction with a show at Artspace New Haven. The next Pop-Up at the Westport Arts Center is scheduled for Thurs. June 6. See the Collective's website, Facebook and Instagram pages.

President: Sam Mink

The Westport Community Theatre was founded in 1956 and in its early years had a very peripatetic history. Starting as the Westport Players, its first show was The Happy Time at the Bedford Elementary School. WCT then played in a variety of schools and theatre, including Westport High (now Staples), the Grange in Weston, Weston High, Fairfield University, the White Barn Theatre, and the Westport Country Playhouse. It finally found a home at the Westport Town Hall, in 1979, and has been happily ensconced there ever since. Its 2017-18 season included A View from the Bridge, Diary of Anne Frank, Annapurna, Yankee Tavern, and for June 8-28, Ken Ludwig's Shakespeare in Hollywood. The 2019 season will shortly be announced. The theatre is particularly proud of the fact that it has trained so many performers, directors, lighting, sound, and set designers. It gives year-round workshops in Voice Production, Costume, Lighting, Properties, Make-up & Scenic Design and is very encouraging of community participation. Sam Mink has been the president since 2014. See Westport Community theatre's website, Facebook page, and Twitter feed.

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is leading the way in a recent announcement that it has completed the process of eliminating nearly all single-use plastic from its operations. This includes numerous changes in the Aquarium's cafe, gift shop and theater concessions stand, including: the removal of straws; no longer selling water & other beverages in plastic bottles; finding new biodegradable materials for coffee lids and food containers; switching to plush animals not filled with plastic beads; and lots more. This effort is driven by the pervasive amount of plastics getting loose in the environment. One recent study warns that there will be more plastic in the ocean (by weight) than fish by the year 2050. More... Poster.
The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk announced back in March that today, Fri. May 25, is Dr. Brian Davis' last day as President and CEO of the Aquarium, which he is leaving to rejoin his family in Atlanta. He has been at the helm while many new exhibits have opened, a Research and Conservation Scientist was added to staff and while growth in membership and attendance have continued. Dr. Davis helped negotiate an agreement with the City of Norwalk and State of Connecticut that will allow The Maritime Aquarium to respond to, and survive, the coming replacement of the Walk railroad bridge that is directly adjacent to the Aquarium. Michael Widland, chairman of the Aquarium’s Board of Trustees praised Davis for leading the Aquarium’s response, which involves a redesign to account for the loss of the IMAX Theater and for exhibit changes necessary to ensure the safety of guests and animals. Widland said the search for a new president is already underway.

Arts & Culture Questionnaire
This week, CREATE THE VOTE asked the gubernatorial candidates to complete our Arts & Culture Questionnaire (below). When candidates respond, you'll receive updates on FacebookTwitter, and these emails. 
1. Your Personal Connection to the Arts
We’ve all had defining moments in our lives. Is there a personal experience with arts, culture, or creativity that has had an impact on your life and your view of the community? And, if so, please tell us about it.
2. Arts + Economic Development
"As an industry, arts and cultural events and productions pumped $9 billion into Connecticut’s economy in 2015, generating more money than utilities and construction, according to new figures from the U.S. Department of Commerce.”  As governor, how would you recognize the importance of arts and culture in economic development and the revitalization of our cities?
3. Arts Education + Programs for Youth
Students with arts instruction are 3 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, less likely to be absent, 5 times more likely to graduate, and 44% less likely to use drugs. Do you support arts education as a statewide priority? If so, how will you champion arts education for our youth?
4. Arts + Attracting/Retaining Talent
People want to live in culturally vibrant cities, and the arts and cultural scene influences in which city skilled workers want to work....
How do you see the role of arts and culture in Connecticut’s effort to attract and retain a talented workforce?
5. Arts + Return on Investment
The nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $80 million in revenue to local and state government. Yet the state recently allocated only $4.2 million for arts and culture in next year’s budget, which represents a 60% decrease since 2009. Will you support increased state arts funding building on this return on investment? If so, at what level and from what funding source?
6. Arts + Tourism
Each year arts and cultural events attract 10 million attendees with 15% coming from outside the state and 59% of those tourists coming specifically for arts and culture. Beyond featuring arts and culture in marketing efforts, how would you further capitalize on the arts as a cornerstone to CT’s vital tourism industry?


Entrepreneur Eric Berridge tells the story of how it is evident to him that if you want to build a team of innovative problem-solvers, you should value the humanities just as much as the sciences. In this TED Talk at IBM, he shares why tech companies should look beyond STEM graduates for new hires -- and how those with backgrounds in the arts and humanities can bring creativity and insight to technical workplaces. How Jeff the bartender an ex-Philosophy major saves the skin of their tech team, about to be fired they feared by not having a solution to a tech problem, by changing the conversation - about what the tech team was building and why. Rather than meeting the tech challenge head on, the philosopher talked around the question to examine their assumptions - assumptions that were leading them down a blind alley. Learning the lesson from this experience, Berridge tells how his company then deliberately sprinkled artists, musicians, and writers and the company boomed - growing from 200 to 1000 employees. 
The Open Road Alliance provides both short- and long-term solutions to unexpected challenges that arise during project implementation - including grants, loans, and advice on establishing better risk-management policies. Its recent Roadblock Analysis Reportexamining 102 applications for assistance over the past five years, showed a number of interesting trends. Taking into account multiple variables, the study coded each application under a taxonomy of "roadblocks" describing 22 specific challenges that these organizations faced, divided into three broad categories: Organization Misfortune, Acts of God/ Market Economics, and Funder-Created Obstacles. See the results in the charts above. This report provides the first-ever empirical dataset on “what goes wrong” in impact-focused projects and offers some conclusions on how specific roadblocks correlate with other variables.

The American Society of Interior Designers Foundation works to build a stronger, better educated, socially conscious design community by providing resources and tools necessary to grow the interior design profession. To that end, the foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for its seventh annual Transform Research Grants, which provide essential funding to applied research projects that address critical gaps in industry knowledge, advance design understanding, and transform the practice of interior design. Funds will be awarded through two grant categories: Seed/Start-Up Funds and Research Projects.
Seed/Start-Up Funds: Grants of up to $30,000 will be awarded to support the exploration or pilot phase of broader research initiatives that can be completed in nine months or less.
Research Projects: Grants of up to $70,000 will be awarded to investigate how design can transform lives; projects must be completed in fifteen months or less.
Interior design is a multi-faceted profession in which creative and technical solutions are applied within a structure to achieve a built interior environment. We spend 90% of our time in various types of interior environments that shape the experiences
we have each day. In creating these environments, and the human experiences within them, designers look to research to implement evidence-based design solutions. What research should designers be equipped with to create innovative designs that enhance the occupants’ experience?
The 2018 Transform Grant topic explores the pertinent information designers need for their practice. Researchers choose a specific topic and propose a project that empirically investigates the topic of choice, generates results that provide metrics on the impact of design, and translates the findings into actionable design recommendations, guidelines, and/or tools that designers can apply in their design projects. We invite you to submit your research proposal to the ASID Foundation, and use transformative research to help ensure that all people benefit from the power of design. Application here.
