CAMA Member Spotlight—Jane D'Angelo

September 15, 2017

 

 

Name: Jane DAngelo

 

Employer: OhioDance 

 

Job title: Executive Director

 

How long have you worked there? Thirteen years

 

Any previous arts experience?

I danced for over 25 years studying, performing and teaching. Originally from Boston, I studied dance with many terrific artists.

I studied Martha Graham Technique from many but notably from Kazuko and Emiko at the Boston Conservatory. I studied with Nina Alonso at the Boston Ballet and Thom Marlow Molinaro, who studied with Balanchine, Humphrey, and Graham. I was a soloist with Bill Mackey Dance Theatre. Mackey was a student of Martha Graham, Talley Beatty and Afro-Caribbean dance in the West Indies. I studied Royal Ballet with Marie Kidder and Terri Cameron (formerly with Alicia Alonso) in Claremont, Calif., studied Jazz with Joe Tremaine at Northeastern University and Hollywood, Calif., and studied with Trisha Brown at Jacob’s Pillow. I studied and performed with Sam Costa of Ram Island Dance Co., Mime with Kenyon Martin (who studied with Marcel Marceau), and acted a bit with Martin Anderson at the Next Move Theatre, to name a few.

 

When did you join CAMA? I have been a member since 2013.

 

Do you recall your earliest childhood arts experience: My mother was a visual artist. She would always take me to her art gallery openings as a child. She also would take me to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston so that she could study the paintings. I remember sitting with her for hours so that she could draw or gaze. I was fine with going as long as we could visit the Renoirs and the Egyptian mummies, my personal favorites.

 

What was your first live concert: I remember that Livingston Taylor (James brother) played at our high school my senior year. Although he never made it as big as his brother they sounded alike and at the time he did have a popular album.

 

If you didn’t grow up here, what was your first Columbus-based arts experience: When my husband and I first moved here we would visit the Columbus Museum of Art and the Short North galleries. That was 1993 and you could actually easily park in the Short North then.

 

What was your most recent Columbus-based arts experience: A memorable concert I went to was a Wexner production in November by Belgian dance artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui at the Riffe Theatre. He created a work for his company Eastman, Fractus V featuring five dancers, from different dance backgrounds. The work was performed to live music by artists from Japan, Korea, and India. It was a unique experience.

 

What has been your favorite Columbus arts event of all time: A Paul McCartney concert, my husband bought us great seats. I had never seen a Beatle perform live so that was fun.

 

Strangest thing you’ve ever done for your job: Nothing too strange to mention.

 

Biggest misconception about what you do: Hopefully nothing. 

 

If you had three words to describe Columbus, what would they be: Space - Art - Parks

 

What’s your favorite ‘secret’ locale in Columbus: I work in the Vern Riffe Building. On the 19th floor there is a cafeteria with a great view of Columbus.

 

Which talent would you most like to have: I would like to be able to fly. So much quicker than driving.

 

Who is your favorite hero of fiction: As a kid, Nancy Drew. As an adult Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

 

If you had a theme song, what would it be: Let it Be

 

Personal motto/favorite quote: C’est la Vie

 

 

CAMA Member Spotlight—Janet Cooper

May 10, 2017

 

 

Name: Janet Cooper

 

Employer: Dublin Arts Council

 

Job title: Director of Engagement

 

How long have you worked there: 10 years

 

Any previous arts experience: I’m a decent flute player, a mediocre tenor sax player and a not-so-great piano player. From an arts marketing perspective, prior to moving to Ohio and joining Dublin Arts Council, I had represented the Scottsdale Gallery Association, Arizona Indian Arts Alliance, Scottsdale Arts Festival, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and the McDowell Mountain Music Festival in Arizona.

 

When did you join CAMA: 2006

 

Do you recall your earliest childhood arts experience? My mom had some wonderful narrated albums of symphonic music for children. I remember hearing the 1812 Overture and Peter and the Wolf from a young age.

 

What was your first live concert: I’m sure it was a classical music performance that I attended as a child. My first “grown up” live concert was in junior high school – a non-descript rock group that was touring and somehow ended up in Lewiston, Idaho! Unfortunately, the experience was more memorable than the music.

 

If you didn’t grow up here, what was your first Columbus-based arts experience: A performance at Nationwide Arena by Eric Clapton, honoring jazz guitarist Robert Johnson.

 

What was your most recent Columbus-based arts experience: An artist demonstration at Dublin Arts Council by Japanese ceramicist Masayuki Miyajima.

 

What has been your favorite Columbus arts event of all time: I’ll never forget Dublin Arts Council’s opening reception for the U.S. premiere of “Shifting Perspectives”—a photography exhibition celebrating individuals with Down syndrome. There was something very magical about the power of the artwork and the people who gathered to experience it. It’s not often that we have to place tissues throughout the gallery.

 

Strangest thing you’ve ever done for your job: A few things come to mind … purchasing a cat stroller for a 5K in honor of our gallery cat, trying to figure out what to do with a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter when we closed for the weekend.

 

Biggest misconception about what you do: I call it “the glamorous world … of the ahhts.” No one ever sees you hauling the bus tubs!

 

If you had three words to describe Columbus, what would they be: Emerging, creative, friendly

 

What’s your favorite ‘secret’ locale in Columbus: I’d have to say Indian Run Falls in Dublin. Just a few steps from the post office take you completely out of your surroundings into a beautiful nature trail.

 

Which talent would you most like to have: I wish I had natural spacial relations perception. Or maybe a better sense of direction! (They’re probably tied together somehow!)

 

Who is your favorite hero of fiction: It’s gotta be Robin Hood (not the Men in Tights version – though it’s a classic in its own right.) There’s something timeless and inspiring about looking out for the underdog.

 

If you had a theme song, what would it be: This is a tough one – maybe Peter Gabriel’s Solsbury Hill? (You can’t go wrong with nature and spirituality … ) For rhythm, it’s got to be Cantaloop—for lyrics, The Sound of Silence.

 

Personal motto/favorite quote: You can’t control circumstances; you can only control the way you respond.

 

 

 

 

 

CAMA Member Spotlight—Lynette Shy

March 22, 2017

 

 

Employer:  BalletMet

 

Job title:  Director of Marketing, Sales and Communications

 

How long have you worked there: 6 years.

 

Any previous arts experience:  Yes, I was the managing artistic director of Snap! Performance Productions for 13 years

 

When did you join CAMA?  About 4 years ago

 

Do you recall your earliest childhood arts experience:  I danced since I was 4, but I won’t count that as it’s really just a part of who I am.  My first memory outside of dance was when I was 5 and my mom took me to see Annie on Broadway. I loved the show so much I wrote a letter to Annie (sidenote: Annie was the first musical my daughter ever saw too!)

 

What was your first live concert: Tommy Page at the Ohio State Fair, he was so dreamy

 

If you didn’t grow up here, what was your first Columbus-based arts experience: I’ve lived here since I was 7 so it’s hard to remember life outside of Cbus. My first memory of the arts here though is ironically The Nutcracker at the Ohio back in the 80’s. My best friend was a mouse.

 

What was your most recent Columbus-based arts experience? Art in Motion for BalletMet!

 

What has been your favorite Columbus arts event of all time: I really love kids discovering the arts for the first time, so I can’t really capture one particular as my favorite arts event. Most recently it would be watching a little girl attend The Little Mermaid, she was dressed as Ariel and she was singing along to all the songs. Her eyes were bright and truly full of wonder. It gets me every time.  

 

Strangest thing you’ve ever done for your job: Clean colored cornstarch out of my nose. Really. (www.balletmet.org/becoming-violet)

 

Biggest misconception about what you do: Lie to get people to the ballet. That is the EXACT opposite of what I do! Marketing isn’t about pulling one over on the consumer, at least not to me, it’s about putting a product that I think someone will love in front of them.  

 

If you had three words to describe Columbus, what would they be: Energetic, Eclectic, Exciting

 

What’s your favorite ‘secret’ locale in Columbus: Platform Brewery

 

Which talent would you most like to have: Would love to be able to dance like the people I work with

 

Who is your favorite hero of fiction: Any strong female character that overcomes obstacles to come out on top

 

If you had a theme song, what would it be:  On Top of the World

 

Personal motto/favorite quote: Negative attracts Negative, Positive attracts Positive. What do you want your life to be? (in regards to thoughts and the people you surround yourself with)
