  • Looking for someone from Theatre *

At our last meeting, we

We are looking to create a series of multifaceted informal talks about what it means to be an "Artist" in today's world. Starting that dialogue on diversity, global perspectives and related issues will play a key role in changing the Culture and Climate on this campus. This project is (tentatively) called "Inside the Artist's Studio".

We have the opportunity this spring to act on this plan. Music's Ovation Artist, world renown African-American Soprano, Geraldine McMillian, will be on campus in March, 2012. She is the perfect candidate to start this dialogue. Arrangements are already underway. Department Heads in Theatre and Art & Design have already been informed.

Reciprocally, guest artists from Art & Design, or Theatre, will also be shared with Music. Through the Diversity Initiative, we will be looking for additional funding from the Chancellor's Office to support this and future similar projects.

* I have already met with Mark Harvey regarding this issue
