Welcome Alvin Reiss

Alvin H. Reiss, perhaps the most prolific writer on the business of the arts, will be in Peoria from September 3rd through September 5th hosted by the Department of Theatre Arts at Bradley University. "Skip" Reiss has traveled the world as an advocate for the arts, playing an irreplaceable and fascinating role in the bringing the worlds of business, tourism, and the arts together. He is the editor and publisher of Arts Management, a journal he co-founded with Alvin Toffler in 1962, as well as the author of six books, hundreds of magazine articles, and numerous studies and reports.

He also runs an annual national seminar in Chicago called "Focus on Cultural Tourism;" and writes a monthly column, "Arts Agenda" for Travel Weekly. Skip will be meeting with local Arts groups, business leaders and government officials on Friday, September 5th from 8 AM to 10 AM at the Radisson Hotel on Western Avenue to share his insights into future trends in a session called "The Road Ahead is Paved with the Arts."

Please join ArtsPartners and Bradley University Theatre for this dynamic discussion.
