Dear Friends of Art Spaces, 

I hope this finds you in a warm place, and enjoying the slightly longer hours of daylight. For us, at Art Spaces, spring will be here before we can say “more sculptures going up.” And there will be... so stay tuned as projects develop this year. 

By mid-year we anticipate that we will complete the fundraising for Courage in Language and Thought – The Dreiser Legacy, a new sculpture project (artist tbd) to honor Theodore Dreiser (1871-1945), an internationally acclaimed writer born in Terre Haute, and widely considered to be the "Father of American Naturalism" in literature. Richard Wright, a contemporary of Dreiser’s, wrote “I read Dreiser's SISTER CARRIE and it revived in me a vivid sense of my mother's suffering. I was overwhelmed. I grew silent wondering about the life around me. I bought a ream of paper and tried to write." Wright is just one of numerous 20th Century writers that were profoundly influenced by Dreiser. As an artist, I am proud to live in a city that nurtures creative thinkers, writers, artists, musicians and actors, and chooses to honor those whose works have had impact worldwide. 

Speaking of actors, on the evening of March 9th, Art Spaces and Vigo County Public Library will present “Theo and His Brother Paul,” at the Indiana Theater. This is a new one-act play by S. D. Weatherston, directed by Arthur Feinsod. It’s a captivating work, that will feature three seasoned actors and we look forward to sharing it with you. Proceeds from the play will support the sculpture project. 

As always, watch for announcements in our e-blasts and through social media. In the meantime, keep in touch – we always welcome your involvement and interest. From everyone at Art Spaces, best wishes to all of you throughout 2017.

Fun Fact

Most of the collections of public art in the United States are run by governmental entities. Philadelphia was the first American city to establish a private non-profit organization dedicated to art in public spaces.  It was called the Fairmount Park Art Association when it was started in the 1800’s, and is now known as the Association for Public Art.
