April 2018: RE:Create, Films, and Fences

ArtCentral: RE:Create, Films, and Fences

With so many opportunities to connect and create, the lull of February and March seemed to fly right by. It has been a busy month of activities, events, and conversations!

On March 20, we screened the third film in the ArtCentral Film Festival: Season One (series is co-sponsored by the Northern Black Hills Rotary Club) which was titled “Making Noise: The Story of a Skatepark.” The film by Cecilia Cornejo Sotelo was made in collaboration with the Northfield Skateboard Coalition. It chronicles the lengthy struggle of three generations of skateboarders of Northfield, MN to secure a permanent place for their sport, bearing witness to young people’s resilience and perseverance as it exposes the victories and failures of the civic process in small-town America.

Jan. 2018: Art for a New Year

ArtCentral: Art for a New Year

By Elizabeth Freer

Elizabeth Freer, ArtCentral Mgr.

New Years is a time of celebration, hope, goal setting, and optimism about what can be accomplished in the new year. It is a season of resetting, recalibrating, and maybe even recreating. We make resolutions – to try something new, to learn a new skill, or tackle a daunting project.

The turn of the year is a mark of time when we measure and reflect on the closing year. Was this a good year, a hard year, or a year to celebrate and remember? We reflect and resolve to improve in the coming year.

There is a spirit of anticipation in the air. The fall shadowy light and fun creativity of Halloween set the stage for Thanksgiving, and then we eagerly await the winter holidays with the arrival of snow, holiday lights, and decorations. It is time for snowmen and snow angels, hot chocolate and decorated cookies.
