At Arts Quincy, we’re celebrating

National Arts and Humanities month in

a huge way. We’ve just announced a

partnership between Arts Quincy, the

Quincy Schools to Receive Sculptures

PARTNERSHIP: Arts Quincy and Moorman Foundation team up to provide art to seven Quincy Public

Schools, Quincy Notre Dame. Pieces will be installed by April 2020.


Herald-Whig Staff Writer

A new partnership will bring sculptures

to eight Quincy schools designed

to inspire both students and the


Arts Quincy and the Moorman

Foundation expect the eight pieces to

be installed by April at Quincy Public

Schools’ five elementary schools, Quincy

Junior High School, Quincy High School

and Quincy Notre Dame High School.

“Public art beautifies, unifies and

inspires, and it’s a terrific way to

celebrate our area’s commitment to its

students,” Arts Quincy Executive Director

Laura Sievert said. “Now is the perfect

time for this major public art project as

Quincy’s residents have really committed

to the quality of our educational

institutions with the construction of the

new elementary schools plus significant

investments and improvements at QHS,

QND and QJHS.”

The project, made possible by Arts

Quincy’s business and individual

members and funded by the foundation,

is meant to be a public celebration of

education, which was a cornerstone

of Fabiola Moorman’s commitment to

community betterment, and the arts.

“To pull up and see a piece of artwork

out front not only advertises who we

are and what we stand for but serves as

a link to the greater community,” said

QND Principal Mark McDowell, who also

serves on the Arts Quincy board. “It’s a

great example of how the arts community

and schools can work together to make a

big impact.”

Work on the project began some 18

months ago when Sievert first proposed

the idea of a public sculpture.

The idea grew into eight smaller

sculptures instead of one large piece,

and a national call drew nearly 200

submissions reviewed by a committee

“The pieces we came up with are

so good. Every one makes me

happy. They captured the spirit of

these new schools.”

with representatives from Arts Quincy,

the foundation and the schools.

“The community of Quincy is blessed

to have an arts tradition in all the fine

arts. This kind of highlights that and

showcases that in each of our schools

including QND,” QPS Superintendent

Roy Webb said.

Just as important, Webb said, the

project’s investment in the arts sends a

message to students.

“They’re placing the sculptures at their

locations so they can see them and learn

from them on a daily basis,” Webb said.

“Once again, the community of Quincy is

saying children are a priority.”

The selection committee blended

different perspectives on art and different

viewpoints, but “for the most part, in the

end, the picks were unanimous,” Sievert


Options were presented to school

principals, who worked with their teams

in making the final decision — often

quickly — which means “we brought the

right pieces, something that obviously

resonated,” Sievert said.

“The pieces we came up with are so

good. Every one makes me happy. They

captured the spirit of these new schools.”

QHS Principal Jody Steinke immediately

decided on “Vault,” a sculpture by

Waterloo, Iowa, artist Dan Perry of a

torch with a blue flame. The flame will be

internally lit, and Perry is adding a QHS

“Q” logo to the pedestal of the piece

which should be installed by the first

week of October.

“It’s one more example of Blue Devil

pride — pride in school, pride in

community,” Steinke said. “Quincy High

is kind of a cultural community center.

There’s always people on campus — I

don’t care what time of day or time of

year — and getting it to look the best we

can is really a tribute to the community.”

The piece for Sarah Atwater Denman

Elementary School echoes the bird

silhouettes used in the interior of the

building, home of the falcons, and QND’s

piece featuring the school colors and

core values “seemed destined to land at

QND,” McDowell said.



Quincy High School: Artist Dan Perry

of Waterloo, Iowa. “Vault.” Stainless

steel and aluminum featuring a lit blue

torch and QHS logo.

Quincy Notre Dame High School:

Artist Hilde DeBrune of Cumming,

Iowa. “Reaching for the Sky.” Stainless

featuring QND logo and school core


Above: A sketch shows "Cosmic Clockwork" by Jim Jenkins of Batavia, IL. The large piece

will be installed at Quincy Junior High in the spring. Below: "Birds of a Feather" by Michael

Young of Chicago, Illinois for Lincoln Douglas Elementary School.

Staff and students will be involved in

creating the piece for Thomas S. Baldwin

Elementary School. Artist Bob Doster of

Lancaster, S.C., plans to trace all their

handprints onto sheet metal, cut them

out and assemble the pieces into a

biplane, a symbol of Baldwin’s aviation


“The students and staff that were here

for the grand opening have a little piece

in history. Their handprint is going to be

a little piece of history,” Baldwin Principal

Jim Sohn said.

“What I want as a

parent is a photo of my

kid standing in front of

something symbolic of the

place they’re spending

their time, meeting their

friends,” said Sievert,

who plans to take a photo

every year of her son, a

brand-new kindergartner

at Baldwin, by the biplane.

“The ones for the two

high schools we picked

especially for people to

say ‘I’m going to take my

picture in my graduation

cap and gown by this.’ It’s

an icon for the schools.”

Perry’s work for QHS was the only

already-completed piece; the others,

all commissioned works by primarily

Midwestern artists, will be done over

the next few months. Additional artwork

installations may be possible in other

spaces, including the rest of Quincy’s

parochial schools and other public

locations, as future funding becomes


Student artists also have a part to play in

the project by designing a medallion that

represents their school for a dedication

plaque to be placed at each sculpture.

"Birds of a Feather"

One student’s design will be added to

the plaque and will serve as a “crayon

rubbing” for a sculpture passport,

which will be available for free on the

Arts Quincy website, artsquincy.org,

to encourage families to visit all of the


Sievert wants the sculptures to become

destinations and part of a larger art

walk for learning more about the art

piece. Arts Quincy is commissioning

a sculpture walk app, scheduled to be

available by spring 2020, to provide

information about each

piece. “People will be able

to hear the artist, in their

own words, talking about

the sculpture,” she said.

“Part of the Arts Quincy

mission is to increase

access and visibility for

the arts, and public art

does that in a unique

way,” Sievert said.

These sculptures “will be

an amazing legacy, an

amazing impact, maybe

the biggest investment in

public art that Quincy ever


The project ties into the ongoing

strategic planning effort in Quincy and

the emphasis for more “placemaking” in

the city.

“Cities we look up to in our region are

doing those kind of investments to see a

lot of public art,” Sievert said.

“We hope this inspires business owners

to beautify, placemark, wayfind in a

lovely way that employs artists and

makes the town a prettier place to live.

Those things matter.”

Thomas S. Baldwin Elementary

School: Artist Bob Doster of Lancaster,

S.C. “Flyers.” Stainless steel student

and faculty handprints assembled into

steel featuring an aeronauticallyinspired

design meant to bring to mind

the red tailed planes of the Tuskegee

Airmen, for which the school is named.

Lincoln-Douglas Elementary School:

Artist Michael Young, Chicago, IL By

freezing the fleeting moment, "Birds

pf a Feather." Young has captured

harmony, growth and energy by

presenting three birds taking flight.

Clockwork." Nearly 14 foot tall and

wide, this comet-inspired piece

incorporates inspiration from clock

Mark Time with Area Drum Majors!

Written by Taylor Tweedell

Fall is finally here, which means parades, field shows, and all things marching band! Every year, select

high school students take on the responsibility of leading the band as drum majors. Arts Quincy and

WGEM are excited to highlight two of these talented, local students! Don't miss these young leaders in

action during Octoberfest Parade & Field Competition on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 2 and 5 pm.

Liz Richardson

Abigail Oakley

Liz Robertson

A drum major is in charge of directing the band during shows and competitions and helps new members learn and perfect marching

fundamentals. A drum major can come from any instrument section from within the band.

Abigail Oakley

Senior at Quincy Senior High School

What is your favorite part of being a Drum Major?

I enjoy being able to help support the band and be a leader

among my peers.

What inspired you to want to be a part of band? I have

always loved music, and I could read music before I could

read words. I knew from a very young age that band was

something I wanted to pursue. The feeling of community in

the music department was also something that enticed me to

join band.

What inspired you to want to be a drum major? As an

active member of the music department, I am dedicated to

making the department better in any way I can. Becoming

a drum major was a great opportunity to do both that and

expand my music abilities.

Liz Robertson

Senior at Quincy Notre Dame High School

What is your favorite part of being a Drum Major? My favorite

part of being a drum major is seeing the progress of the band

put in front of me and watching them grow both musically and

as individuals.

What inspired you to want to be a part of band? My family

is very musical, and I wanted to follow in their footsteps.

What inspired you to want to be a drum major? I wanted to

lead the band down the road of success and to see my peers

better themselves in their marching careers.

Both of these outstanding women were impacted by music

starting at a very young age. Take some time this month to

share music with children by singing your favorite song together,

dancing around your home, or attending a musical performance!

This may just plant a seed in them to pursue excellence in music

and leadership in Quincy!

Lincoln Scholar Headlines Lincoln Lecture

Harold Holzer, one of America’s pre-eminent Lincoln historians and biographers, will be the inaugural

speaker for the “Samuel C. Rinella Jr. Memorial Lincoln Lecture Series” in Quincy in October.

The first annual Rinella Lecture will be presented at 7 pm Friday, Oct. 25, at the Mary Ellen Orr Auditorium at John Wood

Community College. The event will begin with a reception at 6:30 pm in the auditorium lobby. The reception and lecture will

be free and open to the public.


Friday, Oct. 25 at 7 pm

Mary Ellen Orr Auditorium

John Wood Community College

Submitted by Reg Ankrom,

Lincoln-Douglas Debate & Interpretive Center

Holzer has entitled his Quincy

presentation, “Covering the Great

Debates: Lincoln, Douglas, the Press

and the Legacy.” It is the focus of his

recent and highly acclaimed book,

Lincoln and the Power of the Press: The

War for Public Opinion. It is a superbly

researched and masterfully written

study of Lincoln’s understanding of the

importance of the press and how he

was first to use it to speak directly to

the people.

Directors of the Lincoln-Douglas

Interpretive Center (LDIC) established

the Rinella Lecture series to honor

the late Sam Rinella Jr. for his lifelong

interest in Quincy history and the

city's many connections to Abraham

Lincoln. The board sought particularly

to recognize Rinella, an LDIC charter

board member, for his, “valuable

contributions promoting and teaching

Quincy, Illinois, and United States

history,” according to Chuck Scholz,

LDIC chairman.

“We think Sam would have appreciated

The Woodland Cemetery will open for

public tours starting Saturday, Oct. 12.

The first of several theme tours will let

anniversary of Congressional ratification

of the 18th Amendment making the

sale of liquor illegal in January of 1920,

the tours will explore local happenings

prior to and during Prohibition. The

theme for these two Saturday tours is

“The Underground World of Prohibition:

Saloons, Stills, Secrets and Silence.”

Intriguing and haunting stories of

distillers and brewers, tavern owners,

bootleggers and police raids will be

featured. The tours will begin every

30-minutes from 5:30-7:30 pm.

If you wish to reserve a specific

time slot for the traditional ghost

tours, please call 217-222-1835 for

reservations. Tickets are also available

Saul is Solo Artist at QSOA Concert

Myth & Mystery is the theme of the

Quincy Symphony Orchestra’s fall

concert on Saturday, Nov. 16. The

orchestra performance, led by Dr. Bruce

Briney, opens with Felix Mendelssohn’s

“Fair Melusine Overture.”

The legend of Melusine dates back

nearly 12 centuries. The mysterious

and beautiful Melusine, born of a mortal

father and water sprite mother, is cursed

to take the form of a serpent from her

waist down one day each week. Not

quite a mermaid or a siren, the fair

Melusine’s image is now seen every

day all over the world, as the Starbucks

Coffee logo! Mendelssohn’s Overture

loosely follows the legend, depicting

general impressions of the story

through musical themes and opening

with a delightfully cascading melody to

represent the gracefulness of Melusine

in water.

Michael Saul is the featured soloist for

Franz Strauss’ “Horn Concerto, Op.

8.” This concerto is one of the mostdemanding

solo works for the horn,

using the highest and lowest notes in

the instrument’s register, often in quick

succession. Saul is principal horn of

the Quincy Symphony Orchestra and a

member since 1976. He is retired from

the Hannibal Public Schools where

he served as co-director for the high

school band, director of jazz bands and

brass specialist. Saul has served as

an adjunct faculty member at Quincy

University and Culver-Stockton College

and is currently a member of the Quincy

Public Schools music

faculty. He holds

Bachelor and Master’s

degrees in Music

Education. Saul is a

43-year member of the

Quincy Park Band and

plays horn for the 12th

Street Brass Quintet.

The Myth &

Mystery concert

culminates with

Johannes Brahms’

“Symphony No.

2.” This piece,

written while the

composer was on

Mike Saul


KIDS 18 &


summer holiday in the Austrian Alps, is

described as, “all rippling streams, blue

sky, sunshine and cool green shadows.”

“Symphony No. 2” debuted in Vienna in

1877 and audience members embraced

it immediately.

Myth & Mystery will be Saturday,

Nov. 16 at 7:30 pm at Quincy Junior

High’s Morrison Auditorium. Tickets

are available at the door or in advance

at Sturhahn Jewelers, County Market,

Hy-Vee or the symphony office, 200 N.

8th St. Individual concert tickets are $18

for adults and $15 for senior citizens.

Children 18 and under are encouraged

to attend with their families, and will be

admitted free thanks, in part, to a grant

from the Tracy Family Foundation.

Quincy Concert Band Presents “One Giant Leap”


Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2:30 pm

Morrison Auditorium, QJHS


Submitted by Matt Hopf

Fifty years have passed since

Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin

and Michael Collins made

history with the first lunar




landing, and though man hasn’t walked

on the moon since 1972, space travel

continues to captivate the minds of young

and old alike, whether watching the

Space Shuttle Discovery liftoff or hearing

Capt. James T. Kirk order warp speed!

One of the premier community bands in

the country will honor the journey from

the Wright Brothers' 12-second flight

along a North Carolina beach to man

walking on the moon in less than 66


The Quincy Concert Band will present

“One Giant Leap” at 2:30 pm, Sunday,

Oct. 27, in Quincy Junior High’s Morrison

Auditorium. Conducted by Dr. Trent

Hollinger, the QCB will present pieces

that are inspired by manned space flight

and the continued desire to explore the

far reaches of space.

"Composers have been inspired by the

sky, constellations, planets, and the moon

for centuries” Dr. Hollinger said. “The

music in this concert captures everything

from the power and excitement of man's

technological breakthroughs in space to

the beauty and tranquillity we experience

on a moonlight night."

A highlight of the performance will be

Robert W. Smith’s “Twelve Seconds to

the Moon,” which will explore the journey

of mankind from the Wright brothers first

flight to man’s first steps on the moon.

The QCB will open with James

Stephenson’s “To the Sky,” a fanfare

that highlights that accomplishments of


Robert Buckley’s “Sea of Tranquility”

provides a glimpse of the landscape

Armstrong and Aldrin saw when they

climbed down the lunar module’s ladder

and took the first steps on the moon.

Suite from ‘Star Trek,'” celebrating the

continued desire of man going boldly

where we have not gone before.

Hearing Aids Lower the Chance of Dementia,

Depression & Falling

Almost 1 in 4 people in the United

States aged 65–74 have disabling

hearing loss. In people over 75, the

figure is 1 in 2.

Nonetheless, many people who

would benefit from wearing a

hearing aid do not wear them.

Experts have linked hearing loss to

an increased likelihood of dementia,

depression and anxiety, walking

problems and falling.

Now, a study in the Journal of

American Geriatrics Society finds

that using a hearing device makes

these problems significantly less

likely to occur.

Study lead Elham Mahmoudi, Ph.D.,

from the University of Michigan,

explains: "We already know that

people with hearing loss have

more adverse health events

and more co-existing conditions,

but this study allows us to see

the effects of an intervention and

look for associations between

hearing aids and health


She continues, "Though hearing

aids can't be said to prevent these

conditions, a delay in the onset of

dementia, depression and anxiety,

and the risk of serious falls could be

significant both for the patient and

for the costs to the Medicare


Source: MedicalNewsToday.com

There are many causes for hearing

loss, but the most common are

prolonged exposure to noise and the

aging process. Because hearing loss

is often gradual, we don’t notice how

severe our hearing loss has become

until it’s too late. Hearing loss is

also irreversible. Don’t wait until

symptoms arise before seeking help.

The first line of defense to minimizing

the effects of untreated hearing loss

is a comprehensive hearing

evaluation. Doctors recommend

annual evaluations starting at the age

of 50. Evaluations are noninvasive,

painless and complimentary at Beltone.

QSOA Young Artists Competition

The Quincy Symphony Orchestra

Association is pleased to accept

applications for young musicians in their

newly named Martha McCrory Young

Artists Competition.

Area instrumentalists and vocalists in

grades 10-12 are invited to participate

in the 65th Annual Young Artists

Competition on

Saturday, Dec. 21.

The winner(s) of this

regional contest

will receive a $300

cash prize and have

the opportunity

to perform as a

guest soloist with

the Symphony on

Young Artist 2018 Sunday, Feb. 9.

The purpose of the competition is to

give outstanding high school musicians

the opportunity to perform as a concert

soloist, accompanied by a symphony

orchestra. Such a performance can be a

springboard to a lifelong commitment to

the arts. The winners also receive special

publicity which can improve their higher

education scholarship opportunities.

The annual Young Artists Concert

rewards excellence in musicianship

and enriches not just the performer,

but also the audience and orchestra

members. “There are many wonderful

young musicians in the area who should

take advantage of this competition.

Sometimes, musicians do not enter

because of other activities in their busy

lives,” says Jane Polett, general manager

of the QSOA. “The opportunity to be

a soloist with a symphony orchestra is

extremely uncommon. Any former winner

would tell them that the hard work and

time commitment to prepare the concert

piece was well worth it.”

The competition is open to current

musicians in grades 10-12 who attend

school within a 70 mile radius of

Quincy. The deadline for applications

is Wednesday, Nov. 20 and is strictly

enforced. Application forms, competition

rules and procedures are available at

qsoa.org, or by calling the Symphony

Office at 217-222-2856. The auditions

will begin at 11 a.m. Dec. 21 at First

Union Congregational Church and are

open to the public.

A Bright Room

Called Day at C-SC


November 14-17

C-SC Mabee Black Box Theatre

Culver-Stockton College’s late Fall

Performing Arts production of Tony

Kushner’s A Bright Room Called Day

examines the courage it takes for art

to transcend the trappings of form

and descry true tyranny. Set in 1930’s

Berlin and influenced by Berthold

Brecht’s 1938 drama Private Life of the

Master Race, the play allows a group

of artists to travel in and out of time

between the Expressionistic and these

more modern times. Can, should, will

the artist stand against tyranny?

Directed by Dr. Haidee Heaton with

scenic design by Professor Seth

Campbell, A Bright Room Called Day will

be performed on November 14-16 at

7:30 pm with a 3 pm Sunday matinee

on November 17 in the Mabee Black

Box Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults

and $5 for seniors and non-C-SC

students. For more information and

ticket reservations, call the Performing

Arts Center Office at 573-288-6346.

reminisce a lot about my father,” says

Rebecca Butler, one of Gary’s daughters

who is organizing the art show. “Private

collectors are lending artwork for the

exhibit. In most cases, many of the pieces

were literally taken off the easel and given

to the collector, so the artwork will be new

to dad’s many fans."

The show is on display through Friday,

Nov. 8. The public is invited to a reception

on Friday, Oct. 25 from

Injury Doesn't Hold

Woodworker Back From Hobby

Abilities come in many variations and

each person responds to challenges

in his or her own way. Calvin Pope

of Palmyra, Missouri is a person who

continuously overcomes challenges of

his disability to do what he loves.

Pope was seriously injured in a

motorcycle accident nearly 30 years

ago and now uses a wheelchair. His

injury did not affect the use of his upper

extremities, so he is able to continue

working in his wood shop. He has

adapted to focus on small projects that

are attractive and functional like Shaker

boxes and turkey calls. This allows him

to sit and still enjoy his hobby.

Pope trusts his experience will help

others who may feel challenged by their

own disability. He is able to channel his

creative energy, enjoy his craft and reap

immeasurable satisfaction.

At a recent gathering of the

Quincy Woodworkers Guild, Pope

demonstrated how to make Shaker

boxes. The process involves cutting

wood into very thin pieces on a

bandsaw, then sanding them to specific

thicknesses using a disc sander. The

wood pieces are then placed into hot

water for a period of time to make them

flexible. Pope then bends the wood

strips into oval boxes using base plates.

He then repeats this process to make


"This kind of project requires very little

space and very few tools. For someone

who is new to woodworking, it is an

easy project for them to start with,"

says Pope.

The Quincy Woodworking Guild is

a group of men and women who

share their talents and interest in

woodworking. Member's projects

include a wide-range such as crafts,

carving, cabinet making, scroll-sawing,

bowl turning, building and restoring

furniture and more. The group is

designed to help members develop

their skills, share projects, ideas,

processes and techniques.

Meetings take place the first Monday

of each month and are usually held at

a member's workshop and the group

will take field trips to special locations.

Guests and new members are welcome.

accuracy of such views and will also

of many wars fought all over the world

Business Donor Spotlight

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday

life” - Pablo Picasso

Imagine how dull and

mundane life would be if

without art….visual arts,

theatre, music and education

are plentiful in this wonderful

community I have grown up

in and am proud to own a

business in.

As you can imagine, the world of tax and accounting is

to most, not incredibly exciting. However, by partnering

with Arts Quincy, I know that I am helping to make the

arts sustainable in our community, and art education

available to the children who grow up here and eventually

may work alongside me in my business one day. I believe

that education in arts at an early age helps to develop a

well-rounded individual who will likely become an asset

to our community in future years. Additionally, the arts

is an enormous draw to residents looking to relocate

to our community. When we gain residents who are

lovers of art, we gain intelligent, hard working individuals

who purchase our products and services or work in our


Danielle M. Fleer, CPA, P.C. is proud to offer financial

support to Arts Quincy. This company realizes that the

value of art is beyond measure and touches each of us in

this community by the enrichment it brings to our lives.

Individual Donor


Doris Malacarne

When I moved to Quincy in 1972,

Dr. Robert E. Meyer of QPS 172

confirmed the “state of the Arts” in

this region. I was impressed, I stayed,

and I continue to support the ARTS

atmosphere in Quincy. There are

so many talented people in ALL the

facets of ARTS, and this is why I feel

it’s important to support the future

of this community effort, whatever

form that takes: time, talent, financial


While I am particularly active with

Quincy Community Theatre and

Quincy Symphony Chorus, I have supported many of the

other organizations under the umbrella of ARTS QUINCY.

When you think about it, the Arts exist everywhere if we look.

Life is just more refreshing if we can experience our fellow

humans’ creative efforts. It’s what makes us feel connected

and enlightened.
