[Safe Sarasota]  Arts Organizations Feather the Brakes on Reopening with #SafeArtsSarasota
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

As a return to normal shines bright and hopeful at the end of some dark existential tunnel, the reality of the pandemic still weighs heavily in the decisions of arts leaders. Experts continue to warn of new waves of infection even as the most vulnerable have attained a measure of protection from an aggressive vaccination effort. Across the region, theatres and halls must balance their eagerness to reopen with the reality that we’re close, but not quite there yet.

To safeguard against an onrush of arts patrons eager to shed their cabin fever and fill the region’s theatres and performance halls, nine of the area’s biggest organizations banded together to launch #SafeArtsSarasota. The initiative, which came out of the deepened inter-organizational relationships precipitated by the pandemic, serves as a unified response to the gradual reopening of performing art venues. By incorporating the latest science-based guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control along with the various stipulations of artist unions, these nine organizations have provided the region with a baseline framework with which to alleviate any uncertainty and anxiety in wary patrons.

Masks (covering nose and mouth) and social distancing remain central to these protocols, but throughout the shutdown, each organization put their heads together to share other ideas for best practices. The result is a broadly informed standard for; disinfecting performance spaces, the implementation of touch-free ticketing, daily health checks for staff and performers, temperature checks for patrons, no concessions or playbills, and single entry and exit points to minimize the crush of guests before and after a performance.

Over the next nine weeks, SRQ will unveil commentary from each of the nine originators of the safety initiative, beginning today with Sarasota Opera’s executive director, Richard Russell:

“When these conversations started, we talked about how we were getting the gamut of responses. Some felt we shouldn’t open at all, others thought we shouldn’t make them wear a mask. So it became clear that we needed a plan and then we just thought, ‘hey, why don’t we get together and promote our safety measures?’ When you see us all as a whole, we’re the second or third largest employer in the region, and that was really important when we were lobbying local government for funding. But the most important thing is safety.”

[New Panel]  Series Explores Race and Media in the Present
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

A year after the Suncoast Black Arts Collaborative (SBAC) received its nonprofit status, the BIPOC community and its allies continue to grapple with issues of systemic inequality. SBAC hosted the third of a four-part series of panel discussions in which a group of Black luminaries—led by journalist and civil rights activist, Charlayne Hunter-Gault—talked about the current state of inclusion in media and the arts.

The four panelists included novelist and writer Sarah Ladipo Manyika, playwright and children’s book writer Calvin Alexander Ramsey, founder and director of Black Classic Press E. Paul Coates, and former star football player turned filmmaker Dorian Emerson Munroe.

After introductions from each panelist, the conversation quickly turned to the current state of affairs when Hunter-Gault asked whether the rise in racial justice conversations precipitated by the death of George Floyd feel more actionable than in previous decades following the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s.

“In my observation, appreciation of Black culture ebbs and flows,” says Coates. As someone quite literally on the front lines of the 60s activist movements, Coates saw the political and social will for racial equality wax and wane through the 70s and 80s. Today, he says he can track the rise and fall of the movement through book sales from his publishing house, which publishes primarily rare or out-of-print books by forgotten or underappreciated Black writers. “Amidst the pandemic, there was a big swell of interest in Black literature,” he says.

“Especially after what happened, there seems to be an awakening in which folks want to know more,” Ramsey says, “but I just don’t know if this level of interest will last.” Like Coates, Ramsey says he has been around for long enough to have seen the ups and downs. He recalled that when he first transitioned to writing children’s books, most children’s books about Black characters weren’t even written by Black authors. “I was really surprised by that,” he says, “and I felt like it was something that needed to be addressed.”

Munroe questioned whether the current rise in awareness is here to stay or just a short-term publicity stunt on the part of many organizations. He also expressed the most optimism. He remembers hanging up his cleats and transitioning to film in Miami, where hardly any films are produced at all. “I had to work even harder to get noticed,” he says, “but there are lots of grants solely for BIPOC creators. Ultimately, I feel like any demographic has pros and cons; I just have to navigate the cards I was given.”

“How can your whole institution be reflective of our country?" said Manyika. "You have to think institutionally and remember that issues of race affect all of us as the human race.”

The fourth part of the panel series comes in the Fall of 2021 and will explore higher education.

[New Book]  SRQ Book Club: Beyond Order: 12 More Rules For Life by Jordan Peterson
Roxanne Baker, Bookseller at BookStore1

To say that Jordan Peterson is a prophet may sound like hyperbole, but when a writer can conjure ancient Roman and Greek parables, biblical passages, and more modern geniuses like Freud, Rogers and Nietsche to emphasize his points in an eloquent rattle akin to what you had for dinner last night, well, sage soothsayer is apropos.

And that’s what you get with Peterson’s new book Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life, a book equivalent to human vitamins in literary form. For instance, his chapter with the rule: Carefully and completely write about bad memories that haunt you, not only contains three successful therapeutic case studies, but an adage of simply handling problems as a linebacker would run at his opponent. Again, Peterson uses the highest caliber vocabulary mixed with compassionate tough love that will entice you to do the same. And much like the most effective minister can inspire anyone to walk through temporary pain in order to reach well thought out solutions, even more importantly, Peterson makes you believe in a higher evolutionary state.

Each of the twelve rules are so jam packed with gorgeous reasoning that the book is terribly hard to describe, but other rules such as Abandon Ideology may very well be the solution for world peace. Again, not exaggeration, so much so that I sincerely and gently challenge anyone to read this essential guide and argue otherwise.

An intellectual equivalent to Jen Sincero (You are a Bad Ass), Peterson demands much more of your mind, but in return, embodies you with a calm, committed perseverance to make a better life.

[Environmental Protection]  Mote’s Coral Restoration Efforts Featured in National Geographic Magazine on ABC’s Good Morning America

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium’s coral reef research and restoration efforts in the Florida Keys are highlighted in one of the feature stories of the May 2021 issue of National Geographic magazine, titled The Ocean Issue. The story “How coral reefs might survive climate change”, featuring photography from David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes, addresses the issues coral reefs face worldwide, but also the solutions that scientists are looking for to solve them. One major solution: Mote’s innovative microfragmentation and reskinning methodology that has allowed Mote to grow thousands of coral fragments on land before planting them onto the reef, stimulating rapid growth and recovery. To date, Mote has planted more than 100,000 fragments of coral along Florida’s Coral Reef. Also featured in the story is Mote’s latest breakthrough: the first restored massive corals spawning in the wild in Florida or the Caribbean.

[SOON]  GALLERY: Sarasota Art Museum: Carl Abbott Architecture for Nature , November 8 – April 25, Museum hours.

The exhibition features over a dozen projects that exemplify Abbott’s unique climate and site-based perspective on living in harmony with one’s environment and will run from November 8, 2020 through April 25. Using his Bayou Studio as the epicenter of Abbott’s creative inquiry, the exhibition shows how key concepts developed in the experimental atelier space find physical form in his built projects, whether commissioned or conceived with a prescribed program. Nature is at the heart of Carl Abbott’s creative practice. All of his gestures — however small or grand — exemplify Abbott’s committed ethic and aesthetics, his site-based perspective on living in harmony with one’s environment. While some belief systems posit a “man” v. “nature” sensibility, Abbott’s cosmology understands human beings to be of nature. He thus shapes space, physically and conceptually, to serve nature’s—our—needs, in terms of comfort and shelter, but most importantly, in terms of one’s enrichment and enhancement of life. This exhibition aims to elucidate the art of architecture, examining origin stories, early influences and how the visual environment shaped Abbott’s “ways of seeing”. We hope to bring alive the practice of architecture as an artistic pursuit, a humanistic discipline, and a way to reunite with nature. The exhibition arrays over three areas on the Museum Campus: La Musa Azul – a site-responsive meditation grove located in the Marcy & Michael Klein Plaza, Exant/Extinct – a spotlight exhibition in the historic portion of the Wendy G. Surkis & Peppi Elona Lobby, and The Bayou Studio – a mini-retrospective in the Claire H. Rusen Gallery.
