Without ever quite leaving Morningside Heights, I’ve spent the past few months in Arthur Miller’s Brooklyn, circa 1955, working with a super cast (Liev Schreiber, Scarlett Johansson and 12 other wonderful actors) on a Broadway production of his play A View from the Bridge.
I’m tremendously pleased to be back full-time with my colleagues at the Arts Initiative, where things are changing. CUarts is moving, happily, from the staff’s program to yours. You need – we’ll help you – to find new ways to use the many programs and services that CUarts offers. Like Google, we can’t possibly imagine all the ways in which you might want to use the platforms we’ve developed, such as the TIC, Passport (the free museum program) ArtsLink, or the Gatsby grants. You have to let us know how we can do the whole thing better. Any form of communication will do. Blog comments. Emails. Wall posts. Tweets. Sky-writing. We don’t care how, just talk to us, and to each other. It’s your CUarts.
As the TIC approaches selling it’s 200,000th ticket, we’re going to offer prizes for the best ideas (winners chosen by you) for the best ways to make CUarts better. Stay tuned for details.
Don’t forget to write.
Director of the Arts Initiative
