Major Art Institutions in Virginia
overview
Overview
  • In spring 2010, the arts community in Virginia will present a celebration of the arts featuring performances, exhibitions, literary readings, and films on the theme of women in the arts.
  • All Virginia artists and arts organization are invited to participate by presenting at least one program for the public between March and June of 2010 featuring women in the arts.
  • This time period includes Women’s History Month, Garden Week and Mother’s Day so there are many opportunities to build on the theme.

Minds Wide Open
  • Minds Wide Open is the title developed for the statewide arts collaborations.

BCF, an advertising firm in Virginia Beach, developed this theme to emphasize the open-minded embracing and appreciation of things outside of the everyday experience.

  • The firm contributed pro bono staff time to create the Minds Wide Open brand name and the logo for the women in the arts celebration.

  • The theme selected for the first Minds Wide Open is Women in the Arts. Though many possible themes were discussed, Women in the Arts stood out as the most engaging and accessible theme to use in this first statewide celebration.

  • Any program around the theme of women in the arts is welcome - productions of plays by women playwrights, choreography or compositions by women, exhibitions of work by women painters or photographers, films or plays in which the main characters are women. We want to be as inclusive as possible.
  • There will be no additional costs for the participating organizations. Minds Wide Open events should be programmed into an arts organization’s regular season and funds appropriately budgeted. Grant funding is not available for Minds Wide Open programs.

The Steering Committee hopes that when this first statewide collaboration is successful, there will be regular Minds Wide Open celebrations every two or three years in the future, each featuring a new theme.

Marketing and Promotion
  • Minds Wide Open: Virginia Celebrates Women in the Arts will share a common logo, a statewide advertising campaign, print materials, and a websitewww.vamindswideopen.com.
  • The website, currently under construction, will list all Minds Wide Open programs taking place across the state.
  • The Steering committee will identify funding for the statewide promotion.

Artists and arts organizations are encouraged

to plan their individual programs for

Minds Wide Open: Virginia Celebrates Women

in the Arts and to be ready to post the

information on the website as soon as the

website design is completed.

  • Here is one example:

Richmond Ballet will expand its repertory during 2009-10 by commissioning original work from noted female choreographers in the dance field; these ballets will be performed on tour throughout the Commonwealth that entire season

In addition, the Ballet’s New Works Festival in the spring of 2010 will prominently feature the choreography of emerging women artists.

Finally, Richmond Ballet will partner with the CenterStage Foundation on a Women in the Arts Seminar, one component of which will feature the only four women who serve as artistic directors of major ballet companies in North America; the program entitled, “The Glass Slipper Ceiling” will explore why women often appear on stage, but are rarely in charge of ballet organizations.
