Salem College, along with the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, the High Point Area Arts Council, and the United Arts Council of Greater Greensboro, is presenting a multi-year project to encourage the application of the arts to change individual lives and communities for the better.

To achieve this end, the Initiative seeks to foster lasting reciprocal working relationships between arts organizations (and artists) and the broader community.

This blog is designed to provide information about the initiative and about community arts projects occurring in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina.

One Response to About

  1. I thought you may be interested in a series of forums that Reynolda House is presenting this fall called Seeing Our City: The Art of Defining a Place. They tie in to your initiative to improve life through art, which is certainly what Reynolda House does on a daily basis. The forums use the art in the exhibition “Seeing the City: Sloan’s New York” to address current civic and social issues in Winston-Salem. Information about Seeing Our City is below.

    You can view a video about the forums on our website, here: http://www.reynoldahouse.org/experience/special/experiencespecial1.php

    How do you see Winston-Salem? What landmarks, buildings, and open spaces define our city? What is the role of the art community in revitalizing downtown? How can we bridge public works with public art?

    Seeing the City: Sloan’s New York, on view at Reynolda House Museum of American Art October 4, 2008–January 4, 2009, defines New York’s public parks, theaters, store windows, buildings, and monuments in the early twentieth century. How do we envision our own city in the twenty-first century?

    Join the discussion at Reynolda House in “Seeing Our City: the Art of Defining a Place,” an exciting series of community forums using art to inspire action. A reception follows each forum.

    October 9 – The Face of Our City: Architectural Characteristics, Unique Assets,
    and Conscientious Development
    October 16 – The Heart of Our City: Downtown Living, Diversity, and a District for the Arts
    October 23 – Transforming Our City: Bridging Public Art and Public Works
