Blue Man Group “Lights It Up Blue” on World Autism Awareness Day by Kicking Off Yearlong Partnership With Autism Speaks

Blue Man Group “Lights It Up Blue” on World Autism Awareness Day by Kicking Off Yearlong Partnership With Autism Speaks
Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and Orlando Blue Man Group productions contribute minimum of $25,000 to local programs and create sensory-friendly performances

 

In honor of Autism Awareness Month (April), the world-renowned Blue Man Group unveils a yearlong partnership with Autism Speaks; the company pledges to give a $25,000 donation to the cause and will host at least one sensory-friendly show, suitable for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), in each of its markets.

 

Throughout the month of April, Blue Man Group will take collections after each performance to be donated to local Autism Speaks programs in the following cities – Boston, Chicago and New York City. In Las Vegas, where there is no local Autism Speaks chapter, monies raised will go to Grant a Gift Autism Foundation. In addition, each production will offer sensory-friendly shows on select dates throughout the year, with a percentage of proceeds benefitting the cause.

 

For the sensory-friendly shows, slight modifications will be made including reducing sound and light levels at various moments during the performance and making headphones available upon request. The Blue Men will limit the amount of “chair walking” and keep their approach to the audience more subdued. Blue Man Group will also create calming environments in each theater’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement.

 

“We’ve heard from many families affected by autism that their children responded to the Blue Man character in a very moving way. We don’t know the exact reason. We can only speculate that it has to do with the Blue Men communicating in their own unique way — non-verbally, through visuals, touch and sound. Their message often resonates on a deeper, more sincere level,” said Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group Co-Founder. “Once we knew that we could be helpful or provide an outlet for those affected by autism, we felt it was important to do more. With our sensory-friendly shows, we want to create a safe and welcoming environment for individuals and families affected by this disorder, in the hopes that they can have an entertaining and joyful experience together.”

 

The fastest growing developmental disorder in the U.S., ASD affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys. Characteristics include social challenges, communication difficulties and repetitive behaviors. As a non-verbal, visually-stunning show, Blue Man Group serves as a great fit for all children and families.

 

The sensory-friendly performance schedule can be found at blueman.com/autismspeaks. Fans can also keep up with Blue Man Group through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or the hashtag #DareToLive.

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art in Las Vegas Presents “Painting Women”

New Exhibition Showcases 34 Paintings From The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA), the premier cultural destination on the Las Vegas Strip recognized for presenting world-class exhibitions in an unrivaled setting, today debuted its newest exhibition “Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.” Culture-seekers and art-lovers can view the exhibit through Oct. 26, 2014.

Organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), the exhibition showcases 34 paintings spanning the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, revealing the story of women artists, their activism and artistic achievements. The works represent the increased opportunities for education, domestic independence and artistic training that allowed many women to pursue their dreams of becoming professional painters, dating back to the late 18th century.

“We are thrilled to showcase ‘Painting Women’ at BGFA as it tells a powerful and emotional story detailing how women artists developed and contributed in an era when they were yet to be fully recognized,” said BGFA Executive Director Tarissa Tiberti. “The works feature artists of every style while representing a time period when talent was under-appreciated because it was assigned to gender, as the wheels of equality were slowly, but purposefully, grinding.”

The exhibition features a series of paintings portraying female artists as confident practitioners of their craft, as well as a survey of work by iconic women artists including Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keeffe and Berthe Morisot. A portrait by French painter Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, recognized as the most important female painter of the 18th century and role model to the artists showcased, introduces the series. The works are arranged thematically including the 1870s, the era when fine arts training programs first became available to women, to the mid-20th century when women (like their male counterparts) adopted more abstract, modern styles. The exhibit also includes examples of successful artistic partnerships between men and women, such as the work of Philip and Lilian Hale.

“Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston” is on view through October 26, 2014. Tickets are $16 for general admission; $13 for Nevada residents and seniors 65 and older; and $11 for students, teachers and military with valid ID. Children 12 and younger are free. Tickets and information are available by calling (702) 693-7871 or (877) 957-9777, or online at bellagio.com. Audio tours are included in the price of admission and complimentary docent tours are available daily at 2 p.m.

BGFA is open daily 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Last admissions are sold 30 minutes prior to closing.

Career Breaks … the new vacation?

 

Career Breaks … the new vacation?

Oct. 18 marks nationwide event designed to educate workforce on how to realize travel dreams

Ever dreamed of taking six months off to go to another country? Or to travel and see the world beyond Nevada? On Tuesday, Oct. 18, Meet, Plan, Go! (MPG) is hosting a local event in Las Vegas to teach the community the ins and outs of making a career-break a reality. 

The event, which takes place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 3085 East Russell Road, features four panelists – two career breakers, a life coach and a financial advisor. The discussion will focus on everything from first-hand experiences to the intricacies of planning a career break, to determining if a career break is right for the individual. The goal? To let people know they can take a career break.

“Because we live in a society that doesn’t find value in taking time off, we wanted to create a community for people who do want to break out of the norm and travel for an extended period of time,” said MPG co-founder Sherry Ott.

Panelists for the event are:

– Abby Tegnelia, editor of Vegas Magazine/travel blogger, former ex-pat (expatriate)

– Diana Edelman, public relations professional/travel blogger, former long-term traveler

– Judy Irving, life coach

– Becky Buckley, certified financial planner

 “When assembling the panel I wanted to make sure attendees could come away from the evening with a firm idea of what to expect from a career break, along with the tools necessary to do something of this magnitude,” said JoAnna Haugen, MPG’s localhost. “This event is designed to offer participants the opportunity to meet inspirational speakers and like-minded travelers; get motivation, contacts and resources necessary to plan the trip of a lifetime; and to start taking concrete steps forward to go on an adventure.”

In addition to offering tools and resources for planning a career break, they will also address the main concerns that prevent people from taking a career break, usually centered around financial, career-related, societal, and safety concerns.

Today, career breaks are becoming more and more of an option for workers. Last year, more than 2,400 people registered for the inaugural MPG event – 23 percent of which were in a trip planning stage pre-event. In a post-event survey, that number rose to 41 percent. “We want career breaks to be more acceptable in America,” says co-founder Michaela Potter. “In fact, we would love to see a career break on every resume. And with the support of our 17 inspiring hosts, their panelists, and our sponsors, including Intrepid Travel, we are making great inroads to achieving that goal.”

In addition to the Las Vegas event, this year’s MPG locations include: Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York City, Orlando, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington DC and Toronto.
Registration for the nationwide event is currently open. For more information, or to register:http://meetplango.com/national-event/2011-las-vegas-event/.
