Re: “Four galleries exhibit Danny Allen retrospective

Abe one more link...artist Kathy Calderwoods name was contained in the MAG file for Sunny Ducks. Through her, Sarah was able to reach Bill, as MAG had no contact info for Bill at that time. Just a snapshot of the many points of contact that put Danny Allen on the Rochester art map in these exhibitions.

Re: “Four galleries exhibit Danny Allen retrospective

A bit more back story. Before Sunny Ducks was exhibited in the Vault show, a U of R student, Sarah Gerin, was doing an internship at MAG. She was interested in studying MAGs collection of 20th century art. She was the first person to take a look at Danny Allens Sunny Ducks in MAG storage in a very long time. Sarah was very much taken with it, and we encouraged her to find out more by contacting the donor, Bill Whiting, who was most gracious in opening up to Sarah about his years with Danny. Without Sarahs interest, Sunny Ducks would most likely remain in shadow, and this four-site exhibition might not have happened. (And Sarah and I met in the most random way, at an advancement luncheon at U of R. She mentioned being interested in art, and I said, come on over to MAG. And then she found Sunny Ducks!)

Re: “Activating goodwill

Many groups exist to help refugees. Mary's Place, Catholic Family Center, Saint's Place, No One Left Behind. They need many types of volunteers.

Re: “Fate uncertain for South Wedge church

The church's history is interwoven with Rochester's sociocultural and religious history. The leadership of the visionary Algernon Crapsey, who was defrocked from the ministry for heresy, was based at then-St. Andrew's. The first kindergarten in Rochester grew from recognition by the Crapseys of the need for good and nurturing care of young children in the neighborhood. Major American poet Adelaide Crapsey was a daughter. The Sibley and Watson families of Western Union fame and fortune worshipped there and were great supporters of Rev. Crapsey and his family. The religious furnishings including a remarkable marble altarpiece were designed by Rochester artist George Haushalter and are still in their original places. Racial justice and gay rights were embraced by the congregation and all were welcome in worship. The dismantling of it would be a tremendous loss on many levels.

Re: “Removal of airport artwork causes turbulence

Where does VARA legislation apply within this situation?

"If the building owner wants to remove an artwork which can be safely removed, the artist's rights apply unless (1) the building owner has made a diligent, good faith but unsuccessful attempt at notification of the artist of his removal intent, or (2) the building owner did provide notice, but the artist either failed to remove the work or to pay for its removal within 90 days after receiving notice. A "diligent, good-faith attempt" involves sending notice by registered mail to the artist at his most recent address as recorded by the Register of Copyrights. This record is part of a system, established by Congress, which permits an artist whose work is incorporated in a building to record his identity and address, with available update procedures, and similarly permits building owners to record evidence of their efforts to comply."
