In its nearly 32 years ofexistence, SITES has unexpectedlyblossomed into one of the most vital,noteworthy and (with 140 shows onthe road) certainly the largestorganization in the competitive fieldof exhibitions. Far from restricting itself to the cir-culation of other institutions pro-ducts at home and abroad, as dosmaller museums which can ill affordan extensive exhibitions program,SITES itself initiates and organizesmost of the 30 shows it sends on theroad each year.

  • Fogel realizes that some things cant be sacrificed in the race for fi scal security. "You cant change the efficiency of an orchestra. When Beethoven wrote hi s symphonies, he did so for 100 players. He allowed 40 minutes to play them and two re- hearsals to perfect them." Another factor he cant change is that each rehearsal runs up a bill of $9,500. Two things he can improve, how- ever, are "audience development and increasing the source of funds." Fogels ideas are clear-cut. "My first goal is to get a good director of development. Currently, we dont have anyone on staff. I also want to develop regular radio broad- casting and to augment our endow- ment." His plans to nurture growing au- diences will affect Washington concert-goers as much as the concert- givers, through revamped concert times and schedules, reoriented pro- gramming and alternative touring. "There are a number of problems right now," said Fogel. "Playing concerts at 8:30 is terrible. Were the last house of the Center to open, theres no parking and you get home so late. Theres no Saturday perfor- mances either." Opening on Tuesday nights also presents problems in get- ting outstanding guest conductors, ~·~ according to Fogel.

  • With Fords Consumer Appeals Board, your voice has more power than you think. You have the power to write a wrong. Because your written word carries considerable weight with the Board. Fords Consumer Appeals Board has an impressive record of success in reviewing your side of a service-related problem, then reaching a fair settlement. Its fairness is assured because this is an independent Board; three of its five volunteers are consumer representatives with no affiliation with Ford Motor Company or its Dealers. The Board considers complaints involving Ford Motor Company vehicles and Metro Washington and Maryland Ford and Lincoln-Mercury Dealers. The Board will not review: complaints currently in litigation or cases that involve allegedpersonal injury or property damage, or complaints involving requests for consequential damages. After youve discussed the problem with your Dealer and the Company-and if it remainsunsolved-the Ford Consumer Appeals Board will review your case; then it will make a fair and just decision. Its decision is binding on Ford Motor Company and your Ford or Lincoln-Mercury Dealer. But it is not binding on you. We think thats more than fair.

  • Design For Living THANKSGIVING IN THE COUNTRY BY MICKEY PALMER From the slim road that wends up a Catoctin Mountain hillside in Mary- land following the contour of a nar- row streams flood plain, the Little Hunting Creek Lodge comes into view like a picture from Novembers page on the calendar. The cluster of rustic stone houses sits on the plain above the stony brook, evoking the image of a prosperous wilderness set- tlement that might have existed when Indians still came to Thanksgiving dinner with Pilgrims. The only motion in the cold stillness is a thin line of blue smoke drifting out of the Main House chimney that says a hot fire has been going in the cavernous fireplace all morning. A Norman Rockwell-like vision of the all-American holiday floats into a visitors head: the family gathered before the flagstone hearth shedding the chill of a hunt for wild turkey or grouse or deer on the 600-acre mountain estate. Over their shoulders and a few feet past the fros- ty glass of autumn windows, the pic- turesque creek canters and gallops down the path it has chiseled in the mountain, the same mountain from which the stone and timber were cut to construct six buildings at the lodge. Behind the family, is the l2-foot pine table spread with Thanksgiving boun- ty - a roasted turkey with wild rice Robert Lowe challenges the trout, at left, in Little Hunting Creek where President Eisen- hower and numerous other dignitaries have come to fish since the 1930s. Above, a Catoctin Mountain stone gateway marks the entrance to rustic retreat at the lodge that bears the creeks name. Dossier/November 1981141

  • ART AND ARTISTS continued from page 16 $2 million of which only $300,000 are federally funded, the crew from SITES appears to have as much talent for attracting private funds as for generating creative programs. Recep- tive to the implementation of ideas from abstract scholarly sources to the appreciation of artistic crafts, the flexible crew is ready and eager to ad- just its sights to any level as long as the subject is unexplored and intrigu- ing, often co-organizing and working in partnership on the development of a variety of ideas and subjects. For instance, Innovative American Furni- ture opened at the Cooper-Hewitt in March, and the fabulous art of Vene- tian glassmaker Paolo Venini is dazzl- ing viewers in 10 cities. Good as Gold, an exhibition of alternative ma- terials in American jewelry makes its debut at the Renwick on December 3. In the international category the scene is equally lively. Bulgarian icons and pieces of jewelry from the seventh to the 17th century enhance the setting for a symposium on Byzantine studies at Dumbarton Oaks. The medieval jewelry is on loan from the Peoples Republic of Bul- garia, which celebrates 1,300 years of statehood this year and is anxious to share its national treasures with the new world. While negotiations about an exhibition of Polands splendid collection of arms and armor in the U.S. are conducted with the Polish government which is contemplating a six months loan (SITES needs 18 months), a show of contemporary Dutch art commemorating the 200th anniversary of the signing of relations between the Netherlands and the United States is in full production. It is curated by John Neff, the director of the Chicago Museum of Contem- porary Art and will open there in March 1982, the same day the American Impressionists are unveiled in Paris. In the formative stages is yet another project that may well turn out to be of equal importance: Before 1984 - Past Visions of American Futures.
