Pittsburgh Symphony anticipates large deficit

Jody Doherty, the Pittsburgh Symphony's vice-president of public affairs, is quoted by web-based post-gazette.com as saying that the anticipated deficit of "at least 750,000" cannot be confirmed until "later this month [when] the orchestra closes out its books." One problem is that the symphony's endowment, heavily " invested in the stock market," plummeted in value from $130-million "two years ago" to its present value of less than $100-million. Since the symphony is reportedly limited to withdrawing no more than 6.5 percent out of its endowment each year, the stock market decline has decreased the amount of endowment money that can go towards their "operating budget of $30 million." Another contributing factor to this year's deficit is that this year's ticket sales were $450,000 lower than anticipated.

Last year the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra had a $200,000 deficit, according to the post-gazette.com. At the time the symphony "went through a restructuring in which 10 administrative positions were eliminated." The symphony has not decided on a course of action to "reduce or eliminate the [current] deficit," Doherty reportedly stated.

Documenta 11 Kassel

Documenta11
Kassel Germany, June 08 – September 15, 2002

Exhibition Documenta11
Since 1955 the Documenta is held every five years. Every facet of the exhibition is concerned with interconnections and you really begin to understand the main platform of Documenta as everyone´s right to their home without discrepancy for spaces, regions, traditions. Here the exhibition is quite impersonal and technically informal as all forms of media including sculpture, painting, photography, film, video and installations are in documentation form. To learn the art as opposed to experiencing it.

Business, arts and government leaders from Sydney's western suburbs will work for stronger links between business and the arts.

Speakers said there is a wealth of cultural activity in the west, providing scope for arts organisations and business to work together for mutual benefits. AbaF Councillor and Managing Director of Aussie Home Loans, John Symond said: Partnerships with the arts can work for businesses of any size. To mix with creative people and link your brand with creative community activities provides a great bonus for staff and clients?

International Gallery of Art

Across the Bridge Exhibition

Across the Bridge - Werktage Building Berlin-Mitte, September 3rd/2002

Built in the early 1900s, the Werktage is currently undergoing a renovation of it´s interior components and now houses not only the gallery and studio spaces, but also the craft- and print-shops and musical studios. The Werktage is an incredible environment for exhibitions, opening up the collected arts and producing an invigorating atmosphere to experience.
Across the Bridge, which began in 1996, has branched out far beyond it´s home in Long Island City with showings across the continents. This is hardly suprising since the artists themselves originate from all corners of the world including Venezuela, Italy, Germany, Peru and the U.S. With expansion has come transformation and the current form (what is another word for this, I am thinking as in evolution) of Across the Bridge is both inspiring and informative.
