Springboard Wins a Big Bush Prize; Jon Meacham to Speak at Northrop


Espeland, Pamela, MinnPost.com


Springboard for the Arts, the St. Paul-based, nationally important nonprofit that invests in artists as an asset for building stronger communities, economies and neighborhoods, has won a 2018 Bush Prize for Community Innovation, the Bush Foundation announced today.

Now in its sixth year, the Bush Prize is awarded annually in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography. The prize honors organizations that are extraordinary in what they do and how they do it.

Springboard is one of six organizations being recognized for their successful community problem solving, and for working inclusively in partnership with others. Springboard will receive an unrestricted grant of $440,000 and promotional support and materials from Bush.

The other 2018 Bush Prize winners are Nexus Community Partners (Minneapolis/St. Paul; $495,000), Northwest Indian Community Development Center (Bemidji; $500,000), Mid-Dakota Education Cooperative (Minot, North Dakota; $288,000), Capitol Area Counseling Service (Pierre, South Dakota; $500,000) and Native American Community Board (Yankton, South Dakota; $182,000). The dollar amount of the grant is equal to 25 percent of the organization’s prior fiscal year budget, up to $500,000.

Previous arts-related Bush Prize winners include Juxtaposition Arts, Lanesboro Arts, Plains Art Museum in Fargo and South Dakota Symphony Orchestra in Sioux Falls.

Springboard connects artists to the resources they need to make a living and a life. It connects communities to artists who can lead creative problem solving. It freely shares its work to encourage widespread integration of culture into daily life.

Earlier this year, Springboard bought a former Ford dealership and parking lot on University Avenue in St. Paul. When the renovation is complete – the target is 2020 – the space will serve as Springboard’s permanent home.

The picks

Now at the Guthrie: “Noises Off.” We haven’t yet seen this (we want to!) and it’s getting widespread raves (from Twin Cities Geek: “So Nice I Saw it Twice”). Michael Frayn’s classic comedy is a backstage farce about an acting troupe rehearsing and performing something called “Nothing On.” Writing for the Twin Cities Arts Reader, Kit Bix notes that “sardines, plates and doors figure prominently … the eight doors open and close 360 times – and no, that’s not a typo.” The turntable stage caused some trouble on opening night but none since. Meredith McDonough directs a stellar cast (in alpha order): Remy Auberjonois, Raye Birk, Kimberly Chatterjee, JuCoby Johnson, Laura Jordan, Nathan Keepers, Kate Loprest, Sally Wingert, Johnny Wu. …
