What are the social, environmental, and cultural impacts these issues have on our generation? What can teens do in the future to help resolve these issues we face (if at all possible?) What is the relationship between the teens and the issues? What does our future look/feel like to you? SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS You must be a highschool student Submission must include your name, grade, school, email address, phone number, and a 50 word description of what your submitted works are about as they relate to the exhibition Submission must include high resolution, well lit photographs of your artwork Dimensions of the works must be listed in inches (width x height) Medium (for ex., oil on canvas, film, digital photograph, sculpture, writing) Works of various mediums are allowed You may submit up to three pieces.

Birdfoot Festival 2019 at the CAC

May 28, 2019 to May 31, 2019

Check out the full lineup of Birdfoot events at the CAC, below. Concert - Let There Be Night: Friday, May 31 On Friday, May 31 at 8 pm, the CAC and Birdfoot will present Let There Be Night, a concert featuring music by Bach, Gesualdo, Haas, and more. At 7 pm before the concert, Birdfoot will host an Introduction to the Music by renowned speaker and presenter Patrick Castillo. Program: J.S. Bach arranged W.A. Mozart: Adagio & Fugue in D minor, K. 404 Sean Harold: Nachtlied J.S. Bach: Cantata 54 —Widerstehe doch der Sünde Carlo Gesualdo: Feria Quinta from the Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday, Eram quasi Agnus Innocens Georg Friedrich Haas: String Quartet No. 3, In iij. Noct. Program Notes: Surely you’ve had them: late-night existential conversations, sleepless meditations, monsters under the bed that disappear with the light of dawn. Darkness and night have long been playgrounds for the imagination and metaphors for the unknown and unknowable. For J.S. Bach, music and text come together to re-enact and glorify spiritual mystery, while for contemporary composer Georg Friedrich Haas, mystery is revealed in the hidden spectrums of sound. Dive into the deep end for a program of music that reaches beyond. Please note: The second half of the concert will be performed entirely in the dark! Tickets are $25 General Admission, $20 for CAC Members, and $15 for students (with valid student ID).

Halfway to Dawn: David Roussève/REALITY

April 5, 2019 to April 7, 2019
Written/choreographed/directed by David Roussève and performed by the wildly diverse nine-member company REALITY, Halfway to Dawn redefines ‘biography’ as the intersection of fact, conjecture, comment, abstraction, and fantasy; as it seeks to uncover the complicated emotional ‘truths’ of gay, African American jazz composer Billy Strayhorn’s life while creating a dialogue on urgent social ‘truths’ of our own. Though instrumental to the creation of the most important body of work in American music history, Strayhorn (1915-1967) remains largely unknown. As Duke Ellington’s main arranger/writing partner, he wrote/co-wrote signatures like “A Train”, “Satin Doll”, and “Lush Life”. But gay, out, and living in Harlem in the 1940’s-60’s, Strayhorn chose to lead a remarkably private life, allowing Ellington to take the spotlight and much of the credit for their joint oeuvre. Issues of fame, privacy, and creative authorship have never been more resonant than now, when popular culture has redefined fame - not art - as the goal itself, when social media over-sharing has obliterated privacy, and when digital platforms have further blurred the line between composing and arranging. A committed civil rights worker, Strayhorn is a supreme example of artist as activist. Informed by these undercurrents, Halfway to Dawn creates an abstract portrait by layering video-projected text conveying the biographical facts of Strayhorn’s life, projected abstract video art exploring the emotional undercurrents of his journey, and expressionistic physical theater expanding the political urgency of his narrative into our own lives. Moveable screens are surfaces for the projection of historical footage that grounds the work in the Strayhorn era, even while lighting design moves the piece fluidly between past, present, and fantasy. The core of Halfway is Strayhorn’s music as interpreted through a dynamic dance vocabulary melding jazz, modern/postmodern, and social dance that is new to Roussève’s choreography. A score including recordings from...
