New City Arts hosts three-day forum


It often seems as if Charlottesville has an unusually high number of artists – and arts organizations – per capita. But are those artists serving the needs of the community, and vice versa? The New City Arts Initiative, the Charlottesville-based branch of the International Arts Movement group, is hosting a weekend-long forum to address these questions and more.

From Friday to Sunday, April 20th-22nd, New City Arts will host a series of presentations and exchanges at The Haven. The presenters include Greg Kelly and Maggie Guggenheimer from The Bridge PAI, Howard Singerman and Dean Dass from UVA’s Art Department, and formerly Charlottesville-based artists like Kate Daughdrill and Adam Wolpa; the presenters are paired, in the hopes of instigating lively discussion.

Day passes and weekend-long passes are still available via walk-up registration during the weekend of the forum; details, and a full schedule of events, are available on the New City Arts website.
