Star Wars cast reveal ‘awkward’ encounter with Princes William and Harry

As well as attending the premiere, the royals visited the set of The Last Jedi during production. And movie heroine Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, was tasked with showing the Force fans around. “I mean I’m not great at small talk,” she quips. “So it was a bit awkward at the beginning.” “But the thing that is wonderful is, we are just on the poster, but there are thousands of people who work far longer and harder than we have on it. PA/GETTY ROYAL HEIR FORCE: The royals visited the set of The Last Jedi during production “It was a bit awkward at the beginning” Daisy Ridley“So to take the princes around the creature workshop, the prop space, wardrobe and people who aren’t usually recognised, that felt pretty cool for me.” For Mark Hamill (also known as Luke Skywalker) meeting William and Harry was an opportunity to settle an old score. The Jedi veteran explains: “Something had been bothering me since (1983’s) Return Of The Jedi. When they told us that Carrie and I are brother and sister I..

Jamie Tan on Art, Baking for Rojas' 'Theater of Disappearance'

Designer and animator Jamie Tan (Film/Video BFA 15) started baking cakes and fancy French pastries as a meditative practice to help her balance the 20 credit semesters she was taking as a student at CalArts. Tan says the baking process and more specifically, “the relationship between textures, flavors, and memory and feeling” naturally started informing her art practice. One of Tan’s earliest projects at CalArts, “Anatta,” included hand-drawn animations projected through gelatin. “Since then,” she said, “I’ve created a visual language between my art and my cakes, as the processes have become very much intertwined.” Her experimental approach interested renowned artist Adrián Villar Rojas, who happened to be in search of a local cake artist to help with his most recent exhibition “The Theater of Disappearance,” now on view at the Geffen Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The environmental site-specific installation is a culmination of a three-part global project that questions ou..

STEFANI DIAS: Take art in enjoying the holiday season

There's a lot going on this time of year but most of it has Santa, a tree, manger or some elves involved. Art lovers who are up for a little drive for adventure have a couple of options as we close out 2017. Roberta Piazza Gordon, a lifelong Kernville resident, is sharing her artistic viewpoint with "Roberta's World" at the Starlite Lounge in Kernville. An avid photographer, Gordon began at age 6, snapping photos on a Kodak Brownie Starmite. The artist, who describes herself as a "onetime Bakersfield weather girl and news anchor, and sometimes Kernville innkeeper," now relies on her iPhone to capture her world. In her artist's statement, she writes: “The camera on the first iPhone wasn’t very good, but I was determined to learn to take good photos with it, since every photographer knows that the best camera is the one you have with you. Now, the iPhone camera is as good as any point-and-shoot on the market, and still fits in my purse." She said she has become a more adv..

'Human Flow' to open at Cinema Art Theater Dec. 15

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present "Human Flow," an epic film journey led by internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei. "Human Flow" gives breathtaking visual expression to the massive human migration currently taking place across the world. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe. "Human Flow" comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will the global society emerge from fear, isolation and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom and respect for humanity? Screening times are 4 p.m., Friday, Dec. 15; 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 16; 3 p.m., Sunday..

Volunteers = Impact

For those who are on the ground working directly with communities, we know our work simply cannot be done without a number of partners, including donors; local, state, and federal government; other organizational partners; and of course, the children and families themselves. I’d like to shine a light on one of Pablove’s most important constituents—our volunteers—and discuss why they are so instrumental to the work that we do in the healing arts. Volunteers are your biggest advocates.In any organization, volunteers are not only your biggest advocates; they often are the first to adopt your mission. Many organizations, including Pablove, started with volunteers who believed in the idea of addressing childhood cancer through photography and providing opportunities for chronically ill children before our first staff member was hired. Why? They were the first adopters, going on instinct and belief in the arts. There isn’t much research out there about the correlation between photography ..

Documentary Video Tells the Story of a New Public Art Monument in Richmond

Americans for the Arts has released a short documentary video on the development and unveiling of the Maggie L. Walker Monument in Richmond, Virginia. A Monument to Maggie: Richmond’s Journey through Public Art to Honor a Civil Rights Hero tells the story of the development and unveiling of the monument, which commemorates civil rights activist and community leader Maggie L. Walker. After nearly 20 years of work, with efforts led by community and political leaders, the public artwork was unveiled July 17, 2017, in the Jackson Ward district where Walker’s house and most of her businesses were located. Richmond’s Monument Avenue includes larger-than-life sculptures of Confederate soldiers such as General Robert E. Lee. As demonstrated in the video, the installation of the life-like statue of Walker, created by artist Toby Mendez, helps to tell another part of city’s history. Utilizing the debut of A Monument to Maggie, Americans for the Arts aims to tell stories of how public art can imp..

Enacting Change in the Performing Arts World Begins with Changing the Conservatory Culture

For nearly twenty years, I had the privilege of leading major American orchestras, which are not exactly known as bastions of change. But I could not have imagined a place more conservative than orchestras until I found professional music schools! In moving from the classical music industry to the training ground for those professionals, I saw very clearly the need for a new approach. Twenty-five years ago American orchestras began a conversation about what would happen to excellence in performance if orchestras broadened their missions to focus on education and community engagement. The fear, unfounded, was that excellence would be compromised. The opposite was true. One sees an identical conversation today in our professional schools—a fear that if we ask students to stretch beyond the traditional focus of mastering performance skills, then excellence will be jeopardized. Jim Collins and Jerry Porras in their book, Built to Last, call these kinds of false choices the “Tyranny of the ..

'A Celtic Christmas' features music lecturer and arts alumnus William Coulter

For the past two decades, storyteller/director Tomaseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas has toured throughout the country, offering a staging of a night before Christmas at a remote farmhouse in the west of Ireland during the 1940s and 50s. Featuring traditional Irish music, dance, song, and storytelling, it presents a cultural, family-friendly feast, recalling a communal way of life that is no longer with us today. The show’s music director is award-winning guitarist William Coulter, who has been performing and recording traditional music for nearly 25 years. Coulter earned his bachelor’s degree in music from UC Santa Cruz and a master of music degree from the San Francisco Conservatory. During his classical studies, he was always drawn to traditional Irish and American folk music. This led to a second master's degree from UCSC in ethnomusicology--with an emphasis on traditional Irish music, language and song. Now a longtime lecturer in the Music Department, Coulter maintains a classi..

: Loveless: The World of Andrey Zvyagintsev

Stark and austere in both style and theme, the films of Siberian-born Andrey Zvyagintsev explore moral dilemmas and spiritual torment with unabashed, painful honesty. Since his debut feature, The Return (2003), about a mystery-filled reunion between two teenagers and their father, the director has closely examined the subject of family, and all the love, secrets, violence, and betrayals that entails. His 2014 film Leviathan, roundly hailed as a masterpiece, is a complex political allegory about an auto mechanic battling the oppression of the state and church, while confronting personal crises brewing at home. Zvyagintsev’s latest, Loveless (2017), is a gut-wrenching tale about a disintegrating marriage and a missing child. While uncovering the rawest human desires, motivations, and fears, Zvyagintsev allows the audience to sympathize, condemn, despair, or perhaps hope for a better world. Frequently working with a core team of collaborators—including producer Alexander Rodnyansky, cowr..
