    Come learn about how Kent State University partnered with Opera di Santa Croce to create a 3D-printed replica of Pio Fedi’s "Liberty of Poetry," believed to be the inspiration of the Statue of Liberty. Pio Fedi’s “Libertá” was 3D scanned on-site over the course of three days in Florence, Italy. The scans were used to create a nearly full-scale 3D-printed reproduction which was then scenic-painted. By breaking silos of science, art, and industry, nearly 40 individuals worked on the exhibit. The 9-foot-tall replica is currently a special exhibit at the Ellis Island National Immigration Museum through September 2020.

    Freelance designers and individual artists have unique proximity to the heartbeat of the theatre field. They work at numerous venues each season, in many cases over multiple years and multiple visits, thus experiencing a variety of institutional cultures first hand. However, unlike Actors Equity, there are no industry-wide standards for engaging freelance artists. How can institutions incorporate the learning and experience of the freelance artists they hire more deeply into their organization’s fabric, acknowledging the invaluable nature of their vantage point? Especially during this time when the entire field is on a forced pause.

    In this session, we explore how guest artists are welcomed and valued by the institutions that invite them through their doors. We will discuss implementing industry-wide standards, creating sustainable feedback loops, recommended best practices sourced from the community at large, and how we can move forward as a community.
