From: Sydney Cosselman, Krone Museum Director

During the last week of school, sixty-six students from Nick Cooper’s ESL classes gave final presentations, which included slideshows, in the museum. About the experience, Nick writes “This was the perfect place for my student’s presentations. The museum gave my students the professional looking surroundings they needed to do their best. I seriously plan on having many more classes in the Krone Museum.”

The Krone Museum will be happy to have Nick’s classes and others during the coming year. Also beginning this fall, there will be a class taught in the museum three days a week. I look forward to sharing this new adventure with Sydney Robertson and her students.

Summer 2011
This summer has also been a busy time for the museum. For one week in July, Brent Michael Davis, a very well known Mohican composer instructed several students in art of composing two minute string quartets. Their performances were wonderful, a delightful evening for everyone.

Poetry classes have been held in the museum for years. This year, B.H. Fairchild, who teaches at Claremont Graduate School, taught his “Hecht, Plath & the Craft of Poetry” classes here in July.

In addition, interest in Max and Bee Krone, our programs, former instructors, conductors and students continues. We have had scholars from San Diego to Vienna, Austria requesting information throughout the year.

This summer I have also had the privilege of having Sara Pilchman working as an intern in the museum. As you may remember from earlier posts, Sara is a former student of Idyllwild Arts and is presently enrolled in a Museum Studies program at Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA. While here, Sara has been conducting research, documenting objects, creating displays in the Library/Museum hall display case, and working with me on a project for teachers and students that will be offered this fall. I have really enjoyed working with Sara and hope to see her again next year.

From Sara, “It’s been a busy summer here at Idyllwild Arts!  As a youth camp counselor and museum intern there’s little time to rest, but coming into Krone and being able to research Idyllwild’s past (check out the scrapbooks we have all the way from 1949!), design the gallery space with the ever lovely Sydney Cosselman, and learn how to archive historical materials—along with being able to mentor young artists—has really made it all worth it.  There are big plans for Krone Museum in the future, and I can’t wait to see what the school makes of it!”

Last but certainly not least I want to join others in welcoming Brian and Holiday Cohen to Idyllwild Arts. We are very fortunate to have them in our community. Brian has shown a keen interest in our museum and I look forward to working with him, hopefully for many years to come.
