Often referred to by actors and crew members as “The Scottish Play,” and a number of other euphemisms, it is supposed that Macbeth is a cursed play, and actors avoid saying the name when in the theatre!
It is said that the superstition started with the play’s first ever performance in the early 17th century, when the boy cast as Lady Macbeth suddenly fell ill and died right before going on stage, and Shakespeare himself had to play the role instead.
It doesn’t end there. Macbeth has a morbid history of death and violence, both at its performances and in its actors.
Why is the play cursed? Some say that witches in attendance were furious that Shakespeare used incantations, and they cursed the play forevermore as retribution. Others believe that Shakespeare himself cursed the play after King James I forbade it from ever being performed again.
Whether it’s a coincidence, or it truly is cursed, we promise, we’ve been careful not to say the ‘M’ word!

The theatre workshop production of Macbeth opens in two days.

We are so excited for our very own Arts Administrator Rachael Reynolds’ Exhibition “Emboldened” opening TONIGHT at Kink Contemporary. Congrats Rachael!

Emboldened is a project that I approached McKenzie and Anna with almost two years ago. I knew I was pursuing a curatorial career so I focused my efforts on museums and galleries. I wanted to write my MA thesis on women’s representation in the arts. My program at @uakron gave me the option of doing a project-based thesis where I could tangibly execute a project and write a scholarly paper in conjunction.

As all women have, I have experienced gender-based discrimination in the workplace and the arts—everything from “smile more” to sexual harassment. I don’t know a woman who hasn’t had these experiences. Before moving to NEO, I was confronted by someone who felt they had power over me and called me an “emboldened liberal who can’t keep her mouth shut.” Speaking up for yourself as a woman was radical to this individual, and liberal was…well, you get the picture. Wasn’t it just so sweet of them to so succinctly summarize my personality? Rather than take it as an insult, as it was intended, I owned the word. Of course, I am emboldened to make change where it needs to be made.

When representing women and other underrepresented groups in gallery and museum spaces, change needs to be made. I found my thesis topic; I began researching online and through word-of-mouth whom I could have in the exhibition, and all of us were going to be emboldened to effect change if I had anything to say about it.

The written portion of my thesis first evaluates the statistics revolving around women’s representation in the arts, the sale of works by women, the women in leadership of arts institutions, and the women who pursue art in higher education compared to how many make it a career. I discuss the barriers women have faced in society concurrently with struggles in the art field and significant gaps in research contributions to art history.

Tomorrow, I will talk about the last two chapters of my thesis, which evaluate best practices for the inclusion of women and other underrepresented groups and how they were executed in the curation and design of Emboldened.

Check out the stories this afternoon for more details on statistics of women in the arts!

Congratulations to Rachael Reynolds, one of our second-year Arts Administration graduate students, on this exciting next step!

Congratulations to Emily Davis Gallery Graduate Assistant Rachael Reynolds on her announcement that she will be pursuing her Ph.D. in Art History at Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University in Philadelphia after the completion of her MA in Arts Administration here at The University of Akron!

Rachael Reynolds will complete her MA in Arts Administration this Spring, with a chosen emphasis on women’s representation in the arts. In addition to her role here at Myers, Rachael was a research intern at The Cleveland Museum of Art under the direction of Barbara Tannenbaum, Ph.D., Chair of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, and Curator of Photography. Before pursuing graduate work, Rachael served as a high school educator in the Phoenix Valley of Arizona.

Rachael is a graduate of Hillsdale College in Michigan, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art with Honors in Art. She also studied photography and art history at the Florence University of Art in Florence, Italy. In addition to her concentration on photography and art history, Rachael is classically trained in sculpture, painting, and drawing. Rachael intends to pursue further graduate work in art history, taking a particular interest in the history of photography and 19th and 20th-century modern art, specifically the role of women in these histories.

Next time you stop into the Emily Davis Gallery, be sure to congratulate Rachael yourself! 🎉

Warm Invitation! The 7th edition of International Ballet and Contemporary Dance Competition “Domenico Modugno”.Italy . January (15th-17th of 2021 ) Special Virtual Edition ! link- http://bariballetcompetition.com/new/ Don't miss it! XMA Header Imag
For Immediate Release! FACULTY AND STUDENTS DISCUSS THE DAMAGE CREATED BY MASS LAYOFFS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF AKRON AKRON, OHIO, SEPTEMBER 14, 2020- In this video we learn how the decision to relieve educators of their responsibilities at The University of Akron (UA) has impacted the lives of many. On July 15, 2020 ninety six faculty and many staff members were let go from the college, receiving this devastating news just weeks before the fall semester was set to begin. These professors have dedicated their lives to teaching. They have put countless hours of loyalty and dedication into making sure students got the most out of their education, yet these mentors have been escorted right out the door. Many programs currently rest on the shoulders of adjunct professors yet administration insists the programs are still fully functional. As it is with many school and university budget cuts the arts programs are always the first to take major hits. This circumstance is no different. The Dance, Theater, and Arts Administration Program has continued to struggle with UA’s Administration refusing to replace retired faculty members, budget cuts and full program restructuring. Now the university has threatened to remove the last remaining performance and production faculty and staff members in one fell swoop. From tenured professors to set builders and costume designers, this decision has completely gutted the program and the lives of everyone involved. In this video we reminisce with faculty and students on classes and productions of the past and how the program has affected their lives. The Performing Arts School at The University of Akron has had a boundless impact on the vastly growing Akron Arts Community. UA students teach and perform with local theaters and dance companies, they even work with K-12 students interested in a variety of career choices offered in the performing arts. Now is definitely not the time to be cutting education especially in the arts, where growing students are encouraged to express their views and develop their own artistic voice. During this plight many things are uncertain but a sliver of hope does remain for the fired faculty, and a final decision regarding this issue will be made on Friday September 18, 2020.
