ORLANDO -- An architect who says he's concerned about "the
soul and the spirit" of the city has been selected to design
a performing-arts center for downtown Orlando. At a news conference,
leaders of the Orlando Performing Arts Center intend to announce
their choice of Barton Myers Associates as architect and the New
York firm Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects as the proposed
project's master planner. Myers -- a Los Angeles-based architect
who has designed performing-arts centers in Newark, N.J.; Portland,
Ore.; and Cerritos, Calif. -- is known as an architect who avoids
designing flashy structures that stand out from the landscape, such
as Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Instead,
Myers wants his work to fit in with -- and add to -- the cityscape

FL -- The Gadsden Arts Center has its new School Tours program up
and running, featuring tours of the Center's exhibitions of fine
art in its galleries on Quincy's Courthouse Square and also offering
"Tours to Schools," bringing art to students' classrooms.
For both types of tours, materials are customized for each group
of students through close work between the classroom teacher and
the docent, and materials can be developed to reinforce specific
FCAT skills. For example, students might read about an artist -
Eluster Richardson - and an historical event - Civil War and Reconstruction
- before the tour. They would then discuss the exhibition of Eluster
Richardson's drawings and paintings that depict African American
life from reconstruction to the mid-Twentieth Century, from tobacco
picking to ballet. Finally, students would write a passage or story,
or create a painting of their own, reinforcing new facts and concepts,
applying new vocabulary and ideas. The possibilities are endless
and the learning is fun.
