Art Basel Is Maxed Out On Fairs. Its Next Project? Grow Cities’ Art Scenes

 

Art Basel fairs follow a similar format. They occur annually, in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Gallerists set up a sprawl of temporary exhibition spaces in a convention center. A few select artists present special projects. In addition, visitors from all over the world arrive to view and purchase fine art.

However, new Art Basel initiatives are breaking that mold, and hoping to do more for emerging art scenes and increasingly global audiences.

Sister-to-Sister Summit on November 11

The widely successful “Sister-to-Sister” Program is hosting its thirteenth summit for middle school girls on Saturday, November 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Middlebury College’s Kirk Alumni Center. “Sister-to-Sister” brings together middle school girls from Bristol, Middlebury and Vergennes with female Middlebury College students. In a one-day summit and monthly follow-up events during the rest of the school year, the students develop activities that encourage girls to try new things outside of the classroom (art, music, dancing, yoga, journaling, etc.). “Sister-to-Sister” also focuses on discussions of such topics as body image, relationships, and identity. A national program originally conceived by the American Association of University Women, “Sister-to-Sister” works to develop strategies that support girls. The program recognizes that in addition to teachers and textbooks, achievement is affected by what happens in the hallways, between classes, and even outside of school.  “Sister-to-Sister” strives to make a positive difference by giving a voice to the needs and interests of middle school girls. The program provides a “safe space” to talk about the challenges that girls face in this day and age. It enables girls to develop friendships with other girls, even if they don’t go to the same school. The program is supported by roughly 100 volunteers and financial sponsors such as Chellis House (Middlebury College’s Women’s Resource Center), Middlebury College’s Community Engagement Center, and private donors. “Sister-to-Sister allowed me to get involved in the Middlebury community by connecting me with fellow students, faculty and staff members, volunteers and most importantly, middle school girls,” says Grace Giles, a Middlebury College graduate, who was involved with the program for three years. “Every generation represented in our sisterhood is experiencing the environment we live in through a different lens. When we communicate our perspectives, our lives become so much richer.”

All events are free. To register or organize transportation, please call Karin Hanta at 443-5937 or email khanta@middlebury.edu.

Shredding Documents

Keeping information safe is legislated by regulation like the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley, Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), Vermont’s Protection of Personal Information Law and others. Destruction of this data when no longer needed is equally important.
