Banksy

Written by

 

The world-famous Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah is holding a fundraising initiative called “SOB – Save Our Banksy.” A rare Banksy piece of street art, a rat wearing red and blue 3-D glasses, was painted on a theatre stage door in advance of the world premiere of the film “Exit through the Gift Shop” at The Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 24, 2010.

 

The Egyptian Theatre is asking local supporters of the arts and Banksy fans around the world to donate to a “Save Our Banksy” fund in order to preserve the piece and keep it outside for public viewing and enjoyment as the artist originally intended.

 

The proceeds from the fundraising will not only support the protection of the Banksy, but also be used to acquire space for the Egyptian’s children’s youth theater space. The Egyptian seeks to raise $3 million dollars to ensure the future of children’s performing arts programming in Park City.

 

“Our longtime youth theatre space across the street is being remodeled into high end condominiums. After 20 years, our children’s program is now homeless,” says Randy Barton, Manager of the Egyptian Theatre. “We realized the artist [Banksy] greatly disliked his street pieces being turned into private commercial works of art – by folks tearing them off the street and auctioning them off to the wealthy.

 

“We being artists ourselves, understand artistic integrity and decided not to sell the work, but to keep it in Park City as it was intended to be enjoyed. A large donation or two, along with thousands of small donations will allow us to both ‘Save Our Banksy,’ and hopefully help us find a new home for our children’s programs.”

 

Of the original seven Banksy pieces created in Park City, "Dirty Rat" is the only original t hat has not been destroyed, removed or touched up. Banksy rats are very iconic in his work. The rat was immediately posted on the Banksy website upon its creation.

About Banksy in Park City

"Exit through the Gift Shop," which sparked the Banksy works in Park City, documents the unidentified, British-born graffiti artist's guerrilla approach to art. Two other Banksy works are currently located off Main Street in Park City on building walls: a mural of a boy with a pink halo and angel wings, and a cameraman shooting a flower.

Meet Our Program Director / Jamie Wilcox

Written by

Egyptian YouTheatre Director Jamie Wilcox believes theatre can change the world and her master plan to make it happen is introducing young people to theatre as performers, behind-the-scenes magicians, and audience members!

Jamie graduated from the University of Utah’s distinguished Actor Training Program in 2004. During her time at the U of U she became an instructor for the Youth Theatre at the U where she discovered that introducing kids to theatre and watching them shine on stage was nearly as thrilling as being on stage herself!

After eight years at the Youth Theatre at the U of U, she moved to London in 2010 to study at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama earning an MA in Applied Theatre (Theatre in the Community and Theatre in Education). During her time in London she facilitated drama workshops with varying groups, using drama participation to: help primary school children with speech, language, and communication needs breakthrough these barriers through storytelling and dramatic play (with the London Bubble’s Speech Bubbles initiative); aid secondary school children with learning disabilities and mental health needs find a sense of self and community through participating in creative arts projects and theatre games (with GroOops); encourage support, connection, and discovery of self-worth in a group setting for women in recovery from drug and alcohol misuse, using theatre and drama techniques to help them create healthy support systems, gain confidence and a sense of self, and replace hazardous risk-taking behaviors with fulfilling and rewarding risk-taking through performance (with Outside Edge Theatre Company).

After completing her MA in 2011, she discovered the Egyptian Theatre was looking for someone new for the job of Director of their YouTheatre program. Having worked with the Egyptian previously, she knew this was a place she could have some fun and make a difference for young people through theatre. She got the job and has never looked back.

Besides theatre, Jamie loves to read, sew, cook and bake, eat dark chocolate, Skype with people who have British accents, play with Salinger (a dog who thinks he’s a human), and most especially spend time with her most favorite person on the planet, her daughter Aidan.

“If you take a child to the theater, not only will they practice empathy, they might also laugh uproariously, or come home singing about science, or want to know more about history, or tell you what happened at school today, or spend all dinner discussing music, or learn how to handle conflict, or start becoming future patrons of the arts.” — Lauren Gunderson
