The Weatherspoon Art Museum at UNCG is in the process of recruiting adults for a new initiative, New Art/New Audiences, that will begin in September. This is an NCAC-funded project to help build community participation. The project will consist of six workshops on contemporary art and the Weatherspoon (how exhibitions are chosen, behind-scene tours, programs, etc.).
We would like to enroll 25 local adults in the program (there will be a $150 stipend for each participant) who may know little about the museum but who are interested in learning and in providing us with feedback and suggestions for building participation. The workshops will be held once a month on Thursday evenings (7-8:30 pm) and include a light dinner, presentation, and discussion.
For more information contact Keisha Chapman via phone (x2138) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a copy of the brochure.

Trustee WILLIAM R. SOLES JR. ’81, his wife, Melanie, his sister, JAN SOLES ’87, and their father, W. Roger Soles, have made a $1 million gift to the college honoring former trustee chair BRUCE B. STEWART ’61.

Soles, a Greensboro businessman and member of the Board of Trustees since 1994, shared news of the gift with trustees in January when Stewart announced he was stepping down from the chairmanship after four years in the position. The board will determine how the new gift will be used at Guilford following conversations with the donors and Stewart.

A yearlong series of events will focus on and celebrate the arts at Guilford during the 2003-04 academic year.
Opening convocation, scheduled Sept. 10 at 3:45 p.m. in Dana Auditorium, will kick off The Year of the Arts. Dr. Sherwin Nuland and his wife, SARAH PETERSON ’70 NULAND, will make a joint presentation on life through the lens of the performing arts and medicine.
Dr. Nuland will present a Bryan Series lecture Sept. 9 entitled “The Artist Looks at the Doctor: 500 Years of Observation,” and three other major speakers are scheduled for a fall Bryan Series on the theme of “Arts and the Human Experience” — playwright Edward Albee (Oct. 1 and 2), filmmaker Ken Burns (Nov. 6) and actor Sidney Poitier (Dec. 2).
“We are very proud of our academic offerings in the studio arts, theatre studies, dance and music, which are very important to the overall experience of our students,” said President KENT CHABOTAR. “The idea for a theme year originated when others and I saw the wonderful emphasis on “Arts and the Human Experience” during the fall semester thanks to the generosity of JOSEPH M. BRYAN JR. ’60 and the Bryan Series. In addition, our own faculty in the arts actively promoted and supported the concept. We are now exploring how best to standardize procedures for focusing on other aspects of our academic program and student life in future years.”
A documentary and classic film series will run in conjunction with the major lecturers’ visits to campus, with seven screenings of the works of Albee, Burns and Poitier scheduled.
The Guilford College Art Gallery has a series of exhibitions, including the faculty biennial, and there will be a variety of student exhibitions, exhibits and presentations in the academic areas of studio arts, theatre studies, dance and music. The four theatre productions include Albee’s Seascape Nov. 14-15 and 20-22.
All events except theatre studies productions ($5) are free and open to the public. For a complete listing of events in The Year of the Arts, visit www.guilford.edu/yeararts. The Web page will be updated throughout the year.
