1995 in the Arts 

Back in the Day: 1995

Some arts-related happenings from our debut year:

The first issue of Seven Days contains an excerpt of author and UVM professor Philip Baruth’s new novel, The Dream of the White Village.

Rusty DeWees, aka “The Logger,” stars as Lennie in Of Mice and Men in a production directed by Bob Ringer at Champlain College.

The week Seven Days first hits the streets, Belizbeha throws a dance party on a ferry, and the South End Art Hop’s juried show is in a box car at the Maltex Building.

Burlington choreographer Hannah Dennison creates and produces a new site-specific piece at the Rose Street Bakery. She says it’s about “bread.”

Montpelier’s Savoy Theater gets a plug in the New York Times for being “the best art theater between Boston and Montréal.”

Burlington actors Chris Ziter and Jessica Higgins find their performance of Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens is a cult hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Local singer-songwriter Rachel Bissex organizes a benefit to help defray medical bills for folk-coffeehouse entrepreneur Jeff Miller at the original City Market.

Playwright/poet David Budbill edits a new collection of stories by 19th-century Vermont writer and abolitionist Rowland Robinson: Danvis Tales.

The Flynn Theatre throws a catered soirée to show off its million-dollar renovations.

The South Burlington Planning Commission permits the Century Plaza movie house to be razed to make way for a 37,000-square-foot Barnes & Noble.

Uber-cool design firm Jager Di Paola Kemp buys and renovates a hulking brick building on lower Maple Street in Burlington for its burgeoning business.

Vermont dancer/choreographer Patty Smith performs a tribute to Isadora Duncan at Burlington’s First Night and does not get strangled by her scarf.
