MONDAY, JULY 9, 2001 DAILY HERALD SECTIONS PA6E 3 C4L4 Schaumburg's Gallery 54 to begin third annual youth arts program The Chicago Athenaeum at Schaumbufg announces its third annual Gallery 54 youth arts program which runs today through July 27 at the Athenaeum's new museum campus, 190 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg. A public VTP reception is scheduled for September. Reception tickets are $10. The proceeds will benefit the Gallery 54 project for the following year. "The goal of Gallery 54," said Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine, director and president of The Chicago Athenaeum, "is to create community outreach programming for urban and suburban kids as a way in which to supplement cutbacks in arts education in the public schools." The program's mission," he con- tinues, "is to provide free and meaningful arts education for urban and suburban youth without regard to gender, race or family income level as well as creating a mentoring program between youth and established artists. It increases public awareness of the importance of the arts and arts education and fosters a greater and diverse cultural awareness." Under the tutelage of experienced professional artists, Gallery 54 youth create works of art in a variety of media: painting, sculpture and design. They also develop cognitive skills vital to the workplace, such as problem solving, reasoning and decision- making, as well as interpersonal skills. The youth at Gallery 54 also gain work experience in arts-related career fields. Like the professional workplace, Gallery 54 programs focus on performance and product. The young artists are expected to produce high quality work that will be exhibited and sold at the museum's store in Chicago and in Schaumburg or through other retail outlets in the Northwest suburbs. Gallery 54 is named after Schaumburg Township Elementary School District 54. District 54 serves students from Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates,. Hanover Park, and Elk Grove Village. District 54 contains 23 grade schools and five junior high schools. 1 However, the geographic area of Gallery 54 is much larger, embracing communities in Chicago and throughout Chicago's Northwest suburbs and Western suburbs, including Schaumburg, Hoffman Es- tates, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Elgin, Rosemont, Barrington, Streamwood, Palatine, Des Plaines, Buffalo Grove, Elk Grove Village, Hanover Park, Hawthorn Woods, Inverness, Long Grove, Mount Prospect, Prospect Heights, and Wheeling. In addition, the museum is pro- 1 viding two annual summer apprentice scholarships ($2,000 each) to talented area high school students to assist in die coordination of the programs as a way to develop valuable skills that are applicable to future employment. Gallery 54 programs are organized in collaboration with local municipalities, park districts, schools, and libraries, as well as prominent arts institutions such as the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg and Chicago edinic museums. A teacher from Schaumburg-Lippe, Germany is organizing sculpture classes, while Chicago artists lead mural and other painting projects. This year Gallery 54 not only offers the "Art in the Park" workshops, but also offers other special programs: Program 1: "The Literacy Bus Project," (today through July 27). This three-week special program takes place at the Schaumburg Township District Library and the Museum Building. The students work with a local poet creating poetry and then transforming it into images onto the sides of PACE buses with the help of another local muralist. Program 2: "Puppet Theatre Workshop" (today through July'27). This three-week special program will take place at The Chicago Athenaeum and will be focused on creating various types of children's puppets. The class will also provide a presentation at the end of their workshop. .Program 3: "Mask Theatre Workshop" (July 23 through 27). This week-long special program is taught by a visiting artist from Germany and will concentrate on creating masks from all over the world. A student performance is scheduled at the end of the week. : Parents interested in registering their children for Gallery 54 should call The Chicago Athenaeum's Main Museum at (847) 895-3950.
