CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September 4, 1997 - 81 Special Ventures in the Arts to air Labor Day; Sussex Hispanics a focus "Special Ventures in the Arts," a 30-minute television special ex- ploring five exciting and creative arts projects in the state of Delaware, airs Monday, Sept. 1 at 5:30 p.m. on WHYY-TV 12 (PBS). Produced by Wilmington-based Teleduction in coordination with the Delaware Division of the Arts, the program takes a visual, thoughtful look at some of the flourishing arts initiatives funded in part by the Delaware Division of the Arts and the National En- dowment of the Arts in 1996-97. "The arts are very important in revitalizing communities, in edu- cating our children and keeping them involved in positive things, in keeping them in school longer and in creating the kind of thinkers who are creative prob- lem-solvers," said Peggy Amster- dam, director of the Delaware Di- vision of the Arts. "We want to make sure that communities are able to heal themselves through the arts by supporting arts programs that help people deal with their problems." Producer/director Sharon K. Baker of Teleduction reflecfed up- on the program: "Because of the joint social and artistic components in each of these featured initiatives, 'Special Ventures in the Arts' allowed us the opportunity to help fulfill our mission to serve the greater com- munity through the television and film arts," she said. "We hope this program will per- petuate and inspire activities like these here-in our community and in others around the country," she added. Viewers are invited to a variety of interesting locations around the state of Delaware for a taste of the wonderful, arts-based activities to be found. The program opens with a trip to the Secret Garden in Wilming- ton. The garden is a collaborative ef- fort between the Center for Horti- culture, the Ministry of Caring, the Delaware Center for Contem- porary Arts, the Wilmington Housing Authority, artist Tom Sonnenberg and a talented group of young children. Together, they have created a beautiful tiled mural, a walkway and a garden in a once-abandoned lot next to a child-care center for homeless children. The project injects important new life into the neighborhood and the lives of these young chil- dren. The segment following that is a look at the Hispanic Cultural Con- servation Initiative in Sussex County, where a lively "Posadas" holiday celebration takes place among Guatemalan residents and their native Delaware neighbors. An evening full of music, dance, costume and camaraderie encour- ages cultural stability, artistic ex- pression and leadership develop- ment in Sussex County. In Dover, the Capitol Theater enters a new chapter in its history, as the Friends of the Capitol The- ater organize with Kent County Tourism and Main Street Dover to renovate the historic downtown theater and reopen its doors as the only, much-needed, cultural arts center in the state's capitol city. In New Castle County, a collab- orative effort between the YWCA of New Castle County's Home- Life Management Center and the Christina Cultural Arts Center's IYABO program creates the Home-Life Music Theater Pro- ject. "Redemption Song" is the re- sulting musical theater piece cre- aged and performed by residents of the shelter, incorporating their personal trials of recovery and abuse. Hands Across the Brandywine in Wilmington's Brandywine Park ends the 30-minute program with a sunny, child-filled celebration of song, dance and drumming along the banks of the river. A diverse group of children link hands to sing "Our circle of hands...Our circle of hands...will help restore the park."
