Shaquille ONeal, art curator? | Culture Monster | Los Angeles Times
"[Shaquille] O'Neal is branching out yet again by taking on the art world. The Cleveland Cavaliers athlete is curating a gallery show in New York that is appropriately titled 'Size DOES Matter,' which explores the idea of scale in contemporary art, according to a Bloomberg report.

'It was a little harder than I thought it would be,' O'Neal told Bloomberg. 'When you think about what each of the artists put into their work, what they are expressing and want to share with the world, you feel bad about having to narrow it down.'"

Wow. Really?

Remember Issue 18? It's got a new leader ...   11.18.09

Well, we've made it past Issues 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. for 2009!

Maybe you're happy with the outcome of the vote on these issues, or maybe you've already forgotten what they were. In any case, all of those issues on the ballot got me to thinking about good ol' Issue 18.  Remember that one? A little refresher: Cigarettes sold in Cuyahoga County + a 1.5-cent-per-cigarette tax applied through 2017 = $$$ for the arts.

As we know, Issue 18 passed in 2006. And according to the 2008 Annual Report issued by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture (CAC), in just three years, the tax has generated nearly 50 million dollars and enabled $33,560,000 in art-supporting grants.

SPACES benefits from one of those grants. It's a huge source of income for us, and we're grateful to the citizens of Cuyahoga County for their support through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.

On a related note, CAC appointed Karen Gahl-Mills as their new executive director last week. Gahl-Mills has served as the president and executive director of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra since 2006. Read the press release here.

I'm sure Meg, Achala, Donnie, and all of our friends at CAC are very excited to welcome Karen in 2010. Until then, they're keeping busy with a whole slew of workshops to inform organizations about how to apply for CAC funds. Check out the calendar of events on their homepage.

And next time you're out and about at your favorite Cuyahoga County arts organization -- favorite besides SPACES, that is -- look around for the Cuyahoga Arts and Culture name on the wall or in the program. Chances are, they're a beneficiary of Issue 18, too.
