    MS Art Gallery Project: "You Have Currency!"

    Sam Francis Gallery
    The Sam Francis Gallery at Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences Presents You Have Currency!
     
    Exhibition: January 9-17
    Closing Reception: Thursday, January 17 // 2:20-3 p.m.
     
    Middle School Visual Art students engage in how the art making process gives visual form to values. Is art more than the public byproduct of societal and individual valuation? You Have Currency expresses the various ways students engage in making processes that interrogate forms of currency, branding and consumption/production from different cultural perspectives.
     
    Students will undertake the redesign of currency with 2D and 3D digital and analogue making processes. Objects and images that are permeated by notions of wealth and value will be examined, while alternative cultural intangibles will be rendered manifest as new markers of exchange. Middle School students from Ceramics, Sculpture, Art and Culture, Studio Art, Multimedia and Video Production will be involved in this exciting inquiry.

  • Upper School - Theatre Company Performance - "Spoon River Anthology"

    Theater

    CROSSROADS UPPER SCHOOL THEATER COMPANY PRESENTS “SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY”

    When “Spoon River Anthology” was published in 1915, Edgar Lee Masters shattered the myth of small-town America as the bastion of American virtue. In his thinly veiled fictional town of Spoon River, situated in central Illinois near Lewistown, where Masters grew up, the honest, hardworking, chaste, and churchgoing live amidst corrupt bankers, abusive husbands, unfulfilled wives, sexual deviants and failed dreamers. Adapted as a play by Charles Aidman, the long dead rise from their graves and confess their deepest secrets, disappointments, frustrations, joys and warnings to the living in the form of brutally honest free-verse poems. Lost loves, accomplishments and lessons learned are all revealed by the citizens of the town who are now, eternally, “sleeping on The Hill.”
     
    This character study with music features 13 ninth graders transforming themselves into over 60 people who once lived in Spoon River.

    The Elizabeth Mandell Music Institute (EMMI) evolved from Crossroads’ unique music major program, instituted in 1978 by the Elizabeth Heller Mandell family and the Clarence E. Heller Foundation in honor and memory of Elizabeth Heller Mandell, a trustee of Crossroads and a supporter of the arts in Los Angeles. Since 1981, more than 150 musicians have graduated from the program. Very few high schools can match the quality and depth of Crossroads’ Elizabeth Mandell Music Institute. Many of the graduates have gone on to have distinguished professional careers as performers or teachers and mentors. In sharing their talents and passion for music, they have made a difference in the world through their career and service to others.
