The Eighth Annual Mayor’s Achievement Award for Recognition in the Arts is scheduled again for this spring and will be presented at a springtime City Council meeting.  Artists who reside or work in the City of Brisbane and who have achieved the required recognition are invited to apply.

The purpose of the program is to first honor Brisbane residents who have achieved recognition through the exhibition, performance or publication of their works of Art.  It also allows the community to understand the rich diversity and depth of talent that surrounds us.

Visual Artists are required to have been included in five exhibitions.  Performing Artists must have performed in five different venues or productions. Literary Artists are required to have five publications of their short literary work published in reviews, journals, magazines or newspapers, to have had a play or screenplay produced, or to have published a novel or book of poetry.

Applications and additional information regarding qualifications for nomination are available at the Brisbane City Manager’s Office in City Hall, 50 Park Place, or by calling Wendy Ricks at 415-508-2114 or e-mailing her at wricks@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Tickets for the upcoming season are now available on line at www.LiveAtMissionBlue.com or in the City Manager’s Office at City Hall.  For their 7th season, the Friends of the Brisbane Library are pleased to offer three concerts featuring outstanding artists.  The season opens with the return of the women’s vocal ensemble Kitka, a favorite of our audience. The next concert features the return of early keyboard specialist Ron McKean.  Ron performed here two years ago and has made a recording of his improvisations at Mission Blue Center, which will be released prior to his appearance at Live at Mission Blue. 

And finally, the Friends of the Library are very excited to present Camerata Capistrano.  The Series Artist Director, Kevin Fryer, heard this ensemble for the first time this last June at the Berkeley Early Music Festival and was thrilled by their youthful energy and virtuosic intensity.  Ticket prices are $20 for Adults and $15 for Students and Seniors. Series Tickets run $50 and $35 respectively.  All proceeds beyond the cost to produce the series are donated to the Brisbane Library.  Come support your community.  You’ll be glad you did.

New Addition to Dog Park

Printer-friendly version
Thanks to the efforts of a number of folks, the colorful train that has long been a favorite climbing apparatus at the Solano St Play Area is now a permanent part of the Dog Park.  After hearing that City staff was to remove the train from the play area due to safety concerns, PB&R Commissioner Renee Marmion suggested hanging on to it and relocate for preservation purposes.  Interest grew in this idea so the Commission reviewed several sites on City property, eventually choosing the Dog Park.
 
Commissioner Cris Hart then took the installation lead and, working with City Public Works staff, refurbished the 5 pieces.  He completed the project by installing them to the fence near the Park Lane end of the Dog Park.  He stated that several dogs have already "initiated" the new additions to their area.
 
Take a look at the Dog Park's newest decorative addition when you get a chance. A very special thanks to those that thought outside the box and were able to preserve this little piece of Brisbane history for all, dogs included, to enjoy!
