Tim Cynova and Noah Scalin03/30/2012
EDINBORO, Pa. – Nationally known art entrepreneurs Tim Cynova and Noah Scalin will offer presentations at Edinboro University and the Erie Art Museum on Friday, April 6.
Sponsored by Edinboro University, the StARTup Incubator and the Erie Art Museum, Cynova, the Deputy Director of Fractured Atlas of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Scalin, founder and CEO of Another Limited Rebellion (Skull-A-Day) Designs of Richmond, Va., will address audiences at Edinboro’s Reeder Lecture Hall at 2 p.m., and then again in the Erie Art Museum’s All-Purpose Room at 7 p.m., followed by a reception.
Their presentations will cover their personal stories, information about their individual companies, and their take on technology in the arts today.
Cynova will speak on services his organization offers nationally to individual artists and arts organizations, while Scalin will speak about how and why he started his own “green” design firm.
Both presentations are free and open to the public.
Prior to joining Fractured Atlas, Cynova served as the Executive Director of The Parsons Dance Company and of High 5 Tickets to the Arts. Before arriving in New York, he worked for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Association for the Advance of Arts Education, and the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music.
Fractured Atlas is non-curatorial, meaning that the firm neither discriminates nor is judgmental about art. Cynova’s company provides fiscal sponsorship for arts organizations that don’t have tax exempt status, as well as on-site and online arts business education classes for artists and arts entrepreneurs.
Scalin, himself an artist-entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Another Limited Rebellion, is a graduate of the New York University School of The Arts. The former art director of independent movie studio Troma Entertainment and the international clothing company Avirex, Scalin used his experience with youth marketing and passion for grassroots activism to create his own ethically driven firm. When he was employed as a graphic designer, he decided he wanted his work to be more eco-friendly and community-minded, and thus started his own design company.
Scalin also developed Design Rebels, a course on socially conscious design for Virginia Commonwealth University, and founded a long-running community-supported agriculture group in Richmond.
