Meeting: Jasper Community ArtsNovember 6, 2019
The Jasper Community Arts Commission met Tuesday and:
• Approved beginning the hiring process for a new technical assistant.
• Heard from Arts Director Kyle Rupert a recap of October shows, which included performances by Mutts Gone Nuts and Randy Otto’s “Winston Churchill: The Blitz.” Heard that tickets are still available for 6 Guitars, which will take place at the Jasper Arts Center at 8 p.m. on Friday, and the McNasty Brass Band performance that will take place at the Astra Theatre at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16.
• Heard that steel continues to go up at the site of the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center. As of the last construction meeting in early October, about two-thirds of the building’s floor slab had been poured, plumbing and electrical work was ongoing, and more was taking place at the site.
• Approved the seeking of bids for a project that will address a drainage issue at the site of the Jasper Arts Center.
• Heard that Actors Community Theatre dinner theater performances of “These Shining Lives” will take place from November 21 to 23. Tickets are $25.
• Heard that the next Crossroads event will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Parklands of Jasper Pavilion. It is called “Food for Thought,” and will focus on a conversation sparked by the creative and culinary arts. Guest speaker David Hoppe — who is a journalist, playwright and essayist — will lead the discussion.
