The Leadership in the Arts Summit invites artists, arts administrators, curators, students, faculty, funders, philanthropists, community members and potential partners to come together for a collective exercise in forward thinking about the Houston arts ecology. Beyond just surviving this moment, how can we lay the foundation for future success? Featuring speakers who have reshaped the national arts funding trends, the Leadership in the Arts Summit asks: “What does it take to be a 21st Century arts community?” Through panels and open discussion, the Summit gives the arts a chance to discuss the current state of the arts in Houston and where we go from here. Panel discussions include: “Trends in Fundraising and Philanthropy,” “Audience-Community: A Spectrum of Stewardship” and featured speaker: Paul Bonin-Rodriguez on “Leading with the Artists.”
by Carlisle Floyd
Sung in the original English with surtitles.
A widower enters into an arranged marriage that turns out to be more than anyone bargained for. A warm, wise, and nostalgic look at small town Southern life in 1900, Cold Sassy Tree returns home to Houston. Former UH faculty member Carlisle Floyd, the dean of American opera composers, penned this valentine to a vanished world that is the “don’t miss” climax of the season.
