Michael Sartisky

THE ROLE OF CULTURE IN RECOVERY FROM DISASTER

Presented at:
Hallwalls

UB English Dept. alumnus Michael Sartisky (Ph.D. 1981)—now President and Executive Director of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities and founding editor of Louisiana Cultural Vistas—will speak on "The Role of Culture in Recovery from Disaster" in relation to the Katrina crisis in New Orleans.

Dr. Sartisky won two Press Club of New Orleans awards in both 2005 and 2006 for best published editorials. He was acting Executive Director of the California Council for the Humanities in 1990, and is a trustee of Sarah Lawrence College. He has taught at the University of New Orleans, Loyola University, and (as graduate student teaching assistant) SUNY at Buffalo.

Following his approximately 30-minutes lecture we anticipate a lively discussion on local arts communities, ways to support cultural development within communities, and other topics related to institutional programming and the arts. We hope, too, that this event brings together various UB departments with people in the community concerned about the arts, and that it signals the general eagerness of the UB English Dept. and Arts Management Program to encourage this kind of dialogue and collaboration.

David Schirm
All The Glad Variety


Though distilled into broad symbolic forms or abstract landscapes, David Schirm's work often springs from his own experiences during the Vietnam War and paintings may allude to the scenes of horrific and senseless battles, the strafing of weapons across a landscape, "whose laser-like blazes of fired bullets gave a distinctive hum of un-worldliness to the darkness." Though his depictions of landscape forms even touch upon the pastoral in their depiction and use of color, Schirm's original point o ...
