Ucross Gala & Awards Dinner

save_the_date.jpg

The June 5th event will feature an art exhibit, musical performances, and readings by renowned Ucross alumni. Artists scheduled to perform include Tony Award-winning actress/singers Laura Benanti and Victoria Clark, acclaimed author Tayari Jones, and composers Steven Lutvak, Ricky Ian Gordon, and Dylan Mattingly.

Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are also expected to appear

New York, NY - May 2nd, 2018 - Ucross Foundation, the prestigious artists’ residency program and creative lab for the arts, will host the inaugural Ucross Gala & Awards Dinner on June 5th, 2018, at The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Internationally acclaimed author Annie Proulx, an alumna of Ucross and former member of its Board of Trustees, will be presented with the Ucross Award for Distinguished Achievement in the Arts, by David Remnick, Editor in Chief of The New Yorker.

The Ucross Gala & Awards Dinner celebrates the organization’s 35th year supporting writers, visual artists, composers, and choreographers with the gift of uninterrupted time and studio space for creative work. The Gala will include an art exhibition and sale as well as performances and readings by a number of exceptional Ucross alumni, including, Steven Lutvak (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Ricky Ian Gordon (The Grapes of Wrath, opera), bestselling author Tayari Jones, author and Vanity Fair contributor Elissa Schappell, trumpeter Frank London, composer/pianist Dylan Mattingly, and singer-songwriter Kate Schutt. Special guests will include Broadway stars Laura Benanti and Victoria Clark. Ucross alums Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen) are also expected to appear.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the impressive achievements of our Ucross alumni during our first New York Gala & Awards Dinner. We hope the event brings added recognition to the importance of artists in our culture, and helps promote the creative partnerships Ucross is known for,” said Sharon Dynak, President of Ucross.

Proulx is the author of numerous novels, short story collections, and a memoir, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Shipping News, which was partly written during Proulx’s residency at Ucross.  Her short story Brokeback Mountain was first published in The New Yorker in October 1997, and went on to win the National Magazine Award for Fiction in 1998. It was later before adapted into an Oscar-winning film.

The Ucross New York Gala & Awards Dinner coincides with the American premiere of the opera adaptation of Brokeback Mountain at New York City Opera, composed by Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur Fellow, Charles Wuorinen, with libretto written by Annie Proulx, which opens on May 31 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, after a successful run in Europe.

Ucross fosters the creative spirit of deeply committed artists and groups by providing uninterrupted time, studio space, living accommodations, and the experience of the majestic High Plains of Wyoming, while serving as responsible stewards of its historic 20,000-acre ranch. Located at the confluence of three creeks, Ucross brings artists into the heart of an unparalleled landscape. In addition to fostering the work of individual artists, Ucross is a working place for groups and a multi-disciplinary lab for creative thinking – hosting educational programs, conferences, and special events. To date, the Ucross ranch has been an artistic home to 10 Pulitzer Prize winners, eight MacArthur Genius winners, eight Tony Award winners, six National Book Award winners, and two Academy Award winners, among dozens of additional award winners. Ucross also participates in a number of partnerships with national organizations that share the foundation’s vision and values. Among them are the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Awards, the Sundance Institute Theater Program, the Whiting Foundation, Yale University, and the Warhol Foundation. A full list may be found here.

Without Northside Fest, there would be no Brooklyn Magazine- it was the festival that led to the creation of our publication, so we've set aside a limited release of discounted Northside badges because we want to celebrate with you!

For 10 years, Northside has prided itself as a music discovery festival that’s created by Brooklyn, for Brooklyn—Solange headlining her first U.S. festival; Chance the Rapper playing his first New York show in a packed Polish disco; Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds for 6,000 fans in the heart of McCarren Park. Last year’s headlining acts included sold-out shows by Miguel, Dirty Projectors and Thursday and emerging bands Girlpool, Jay Som, Big Thief and electronic producer Jlin.

Looking forward to this year, the Innovation conference will bring together business and thought leaders to participate in keynote talks, interviews, panels, pitch competitions, immersive VR activations and parties. Last year’s speakers included Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, hotelier Ian Schrager, writer Piper Kerman and Kickstarter CEO Yancey Stickler. The (first-ever) theme will be “Future Making”, highlighting the ideas and people that are driving change in our world, as well as how we can use this new thinking to make ourselves more future-proof.

Publicolor's annual Spring benefit

publicolor.jpeg

Publicolor's annual Spring benefit "Stir Splatter + Roll" will be held on April 23, 2018 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street. Beginning at 6:00PM, guests will enjoy colorful cocktails, painting alongside some of our city's leading architects, artists and designers, and a festive gala dinner with a wonderful live auction. This year’s benefit will honor Chris Ward - AECOM VP and CEO, Metro New York, and former Executive Director of Port Authority - and present the boundary-breaking composer, Philip Glass, with the Catalyst for Change Award. 

Publicolor fights poverty by aggressively addressing the alarming dropout rate and low levels of educational attainment and youth employment in New York City. They do this by engaging high-risk students, ages 12-24, in a long-term continuum of intensive, multi-day, design-based programs to encourage academic achievement, community service, college preparation and job readiness. Their unique applied learning approach uses design and design thinking as vehicles to engage, stimulate and inspire at-risk, low-performing students in our city’s struggling middle and high schools, empowering them to achieve success in school, college, career and life.

For 25 years, we have been collaborating with educators to create great public schools where they are needed most. Our network has grown to 150 innovative public schools, district and charter, K-12, in urban and rural communities across 30 states, and today, we also partner directly with school districts to transform teaching through our open-source EL Education Language Arts curriculum and coaching. 

Since our ‘break the mold’ founding, EL Education has been lifting our national vision of what student achievement can be. Our students build character as they master academics; joy and challenge married in the service of greater purpose. Learning is joined to civic contribution. 

We have reached more than a million students across America with an education that prepares them to succeed as scholars and active citizens, contributing to a better world.
