Meet The Artist

ArtWear Fashion Week may be gone, but our current art exhibition, “Say Yes to the Dress!” is a reflection of the fun and fancy that ‘dressing up’ can bring to life. Running through November 2nd, the exhibit features paintings by Fort Collins artist Haley Hasler and dresses by Vermont artist Wylie Sofia Garcia.

Join us for a Gallery Talk on Friday October 11th, as Hasler will be present to talk about her paintings. Hasler uses the self-portrait to present the viewer with characters painted as archetypal heroines, armored in costume and dressed to distraction. Masterful painting and dazzling compositions grab the viewer’s attention. In the end though, it is that enigmatic face that holds the viewer’s gaze.

Garcia's fiber artworks are also on display. Using only materials and supplies from her closet and studio, Garcia explores ideas of craft, women’s work and roles, and personal identity through daily making and wearing of a single dress each month for one year. Elaborate, strange, and intensely personal, it is difficult for the viewer to know what to make of the dresses. They tend to reveal too much (emotionally or physically), or cross into the realm of disguise, hiding the true person behind a façade. Come take and look at this intriguing wardrobe for yourself!

Hasler's Gallery Talk will be held Friday, October 11th, at 5:30 in the Canyon West Room. After the Gallery Talk please join us for a reception in the Gallery Lobby.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays, noon – 6:00 p.m. The Gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays, and is open for most evening theatre performances. Admission is free.

A Few Words from Our New General Manager

As the 2013-14 performing arts season kicks off this week, I am thrilled to introduce myself to you and share a bit of my vision for Lincoln Center’s future.

With over 19 years working as an arts professional, I have had the pleasure of working as an artist, a tour manager, a venue operations manager, and a festival producer. I come to Colorado from Atlanta where I settled after hanging up my touring hat and working as the Theatrical Operations Manager for the Office of the Arts at Georgia Tech. I obtained a BFA from Long Island University, and an MPA from Georgia State University.I possess an unyielding passion for the arts industry, and for the beauty of seeing diverse communities and cultures come together through the power of live performance.

I am a firm believer in the idea of the arts center as a community’s “cultural living room” and have often said the arts are the greatest method we have of putting “unity” back in our community. The arts are essential to making Ft. Collins and the Northern Front Range a thriving and creative locus for individuals and families. I’d like to think of the Lincoln Center as a celebration of the inspiration and imagination of our region, and to personally invite you to get involved. Art is not merely escapism, but an entryway to personal, social, and civic engagement; so get engaged!

My staff of dedicated professionals and I hope to not only entertain you by presenting world class performances, but we also want to connect with you and continue to celebrate our shared love of performance and visual art. I am eager to meet you. Look for me during intermissions and before performances throughout the season; I would love to get to know each and every one of you personally.

George Washington once said, “To encourage literature and the arts is a duty which every good citizen owes to his country.” I look forward to my duty of ensuring the continued success of Lincoln Center and contributing to defining the culture of Fort Collins.

Jack A. Rogers
Lincoln Center General Manager

A Magical World of Nature

MOMIX, the company that defies categorization as easily as its dancers defy gravity, bursts onto the stage with Botanica November 25th. Botanica explores the animated world of nature and the unique qualities of earth, light, darkness and airy space.

Following not only the rhythms of the seasons, but also the evolution of the world and the passing of a day, this magical theatrical experience is both provocative and whimsical. With an eclectic score ranging from birdsongs to Vivaldi, Botanica is choreographer Moses Pendleton’s latest creation for MOMIX.

Dancers explore flowers like marigolds and sunflowers, birds like owls and sandpipers, and natural events like storms and solar flares. Each dance is relatively short and whether it expresses a form of plant life or natural element, the dance is carefully crafted to integrate music with movement.

Botanica is thrillingly brought to life by the magical, energy of the MOMIX dancers with costumes, projections and custom-made props and puppetry by Michael Curry adding an extra dose of fantasy to the elixir. This is dance at its most organic and inventive. The seasons will never be the same.


An All-Beethoven Spectacular

Celebrating its 10th year under the baton of Dr. Michael Todd Krueger, the Larimer Chorale will open its season in the Performance Hall on Sunday, October 20th with Immortal Beloved Beethoven. The concert will be staged with a full orchestra, four soloists and over 100 chorale members.

The orchestra opens the concert with the powerful Coriolanus Overture, first performed in March of 1807. The 115-voice chorale then performs the short choral part-song Elegischer Gesang, Op. 118 (Elegiac Song), composed during the summer of 1814. The centerpiece of the concert is Beethoven's inspiring Mass in C Major, Op. 86, which was composed in 1807.

“The mass is uniquely Beethoven," says Krueger. "It contains no solo arias, and the solo quartet and choral parts are employed to provide contrasts of color, texture, and dynamics rather than to form separate musical sections. The work has a satisfying and sublime unity.”

The concert concludes with Hallelujah from Beethoven’s oratorio Christus am Ölberge, Op. 85 (Christ on the Mount of Olives). Although the word "hallelujah" does not appear in the original German text, this chorus has been a "war horse" for American church choirs and certainly has the spirit of the more famous "Hallelujah Chorus" by George Frideric Handel. With its strong statements and rhythmic accompaniment, this work is immortal Beethoven at his best.

The all-Beethoven extravaganza is the first concert in a season that will celebrate Dr. Krueger’s leadership as conductor and artistic director of the Larimer Chorale.
