We completed some much needed remodeling in many areas from adding new public space and furnishings to sprucing up staff offices. And this is the time of year that our whole outside blooms like crazy — thanks to a staff horticulturist! The building is “looking good”! We continue to be “wedding central” with a wedding reception scheduled every weekend — booked two years out! A good source of revenue for us and an affordable venue for the entire community! Yes — WEDDINGS, WEDDINGS, AND MORE WEDDINGS have tremendous economic impact as well! Just counting the last 4 Weddings, 200 Hotel rooms were booked, with visitors from over 17 states. Kent and I traveled to Nassau, Bahamas to meet artists and filmmakers, and begin research and development for the Master Artists of the Bahamas exhibition and symposium to be presented this fall. The exhibition and symposium support our collection and exhibition policies and will bring in 15 artists and filmmakers to participate in a symposium and gala exhibition opening. The exhibition will then travel around the country starting in 2012. Classes, workshops, public programs and particularly the Phelps Youth Pavilion have all enjoyed healthy participation again this year with new offerings in all areas. The Riverfront Renaissance projects are winding down and we are looking forward to not having construction surrounding us for the first time in almost seven years. When I am writing this letter next year — we will have experienced our first season of activity in the new Amphitheatre and have watched kids splash and play in Mark’s Splash Park — all adjacent to the Waterloo Center for the Arts and located on the newly dedicated Arts Plaza. D I RECTO R’ S LETTER | 5 We started an Urban Gallery program this spring in three downtown store front locations and are getting ready to install new exhibits this week. We also commissioned Steve Gerberich to create a commemorative kinetic play sculpture for the Youth Pavilion in memory of commission member, Dale Phelps — we look forward to its installation and dedication later this fall. Three commission members – Mary Ann Burk, Steve Showers, and Mike Broshar – who have been on the commission since its inception in 1999 and were instrumental in raising funds for the Phelps Youth Pavilion addition were awarded lifetime honorary status and have been invited to continue to attend monthly commission meetings. Their service was invaluable to the development of the new Cultural and Arts Commission and to the addition of the Phelps Youth Pavilion that opened in 2008. Many thanks to all three! Three new commissioners were appointed by Mayor Buck Clark; they are former Mayor Tim Hurley, Scott Cawelti and Katy Susong — we are delighted to have all three join us. A 40 year employee, Registrar, Marlene Ackerman retired this past year — she is very much missed by all, but continues to come back to volunteer her services. Elizabeth Andrews was hired to take her place and has hit the ground running! Welcome Elizabeth! Yes, a great year; and much more to come in the following year. Join us!
