In an effort to meet local industry demand for skilled artists, and to promote Vancouver internationally as a hub for the creative industries, a partnership between Langara College and the Academy of Art University (ArtU) San Francisco will train students for careers in gaming and film. The programs will be located at a 38,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility at 565 Great Northern Way in Vancouver.

The ArtU at Langara programs will focus on VFX, comprehensive coverage of 3D rendering for film and interactive entertainment, game development, and other technology-related creative arts. All students will graduate with the skills they need to immediately enter the job market, with international students eligible to apply for a 2-3 year post-graduation work permit.

“This is an exciting project for Langara. Langara’s mandate as a public college is to provide and build a strong, sustainable, innovative economy that works for everyone in the province. The ArtU partnership accomplishes exactly this,” said Ajay Patel, Langara’s Vice President, External Development. “These programs will train a workforce needed to fill high demand jobs in this important sector. We are really excited to work with the Academy to deliver high level programming in the creative arts for games and film.”

Elisa Stephens, President of Academy of Art University, sees this as an especially beneficial partnership for aspiring professionals. “We are first and foremost a professional school—a purpose-based art and design school where students develop their talents and acquire the specific skills sought by the creative marketplace,” she said. “Partnering with Langara continues that legacy as we prepare students for career success in both the game and film industries.”

Will Bagley, a journalist known for monumental nonfiction books about the Mormon West and overland trails, will receive the 2019 Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Contributions to Western Literature from Western Writers of America (WesternWriters.org).

Bagley will also be inducted into the Western Writers Hall of Fame, housed outside the McCracken Research Library at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo.

“People either love or hate me,” said Bagley, who lives in Salt Lake City. “The Wister Award is an expression of affection from my WWA friends that is appreciated and humbling, for it calls to mind the words ‘I am not worthy!'”

The nonprofit guild’s highest honor will be presented during Western Writers of America’s convention June 19-22 in Tucson, Ariz.

Bagley is a three-time winner of WWA’s Spur Award for “Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Youngand the Massacre at Mountain Meadows”; “The Mormon Rebellion: America’s First Civil War, 1857-1858”; and “With Golden Visions Bright Before Them Trails to the Mining West, 1849–1852,” all published by the University of Oklahoma Press.

Bagley has also received the Western Heritage Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Caroline Bancroft History Prize. His books have also been honored by Westerners International, Utah Division of State History, Wyoming State Historical Society and the John Whitmer Historical Association.

“Will is not just a tenacious researcher, he is a brilliant writer,” WWA executive director Candy Moulton said. “His ‘Blood of the Prophets’ is a classic – impeccably researched and written with precision.”

Bagley’s other books include “South Pass: Gateway to a Continent” and “So Rugged and Mountainous: Blazing the Trails to Oregon and California, 1812–1848,” both Spur Award finalists.

Since the early 1950s, Western Writers of America has honored and promoted all forms of literature about the American West. Previous Owen Wister honorees include Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday; historians David Dary and Robert M. Utley; and best-selling novelists Rudolfo Anaya, Elmore Leonard, Tony Hillerman and Lucia St. Clair Robson.

The Wister Award is a bronze statue of a buffalo created especially for Western Writers of America by artist Robert Duffie.

 Park Hotel Tokyo announced on February 19 that the elevator hall which was created as an extra production of the “Artist in Hotel” project is complete.

The “Artist in Hotel” project is Park Hotel Tokyo’s version of “Artist in Residence” programs, whereby Japanese artists stay at the hotel and paint on walls and ceilings in guest rooms based on the concept “beauty of Japan.” In 2017, the project was honored at the Japan Tourism Awards.

Artist OZ-Yamaguchi Keisuke, who worked on “Artist Room Kabuki” for the “Artist in Hotel” project, painted the second-basement floor elevator hall under the theme of “HAZAMA (interstitial space).” This means that the “spatial beauty” unique to Japan can now be enjoyed in the key space that welcomes guests to the hotel.

Park Hotel Tokyo General Manager Takayuki Suzuki said:

“The entrance connecting the mundane to ‘Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty’ has been reborn. We invite guests to feast their eyes on the uniquely Japanese aesthetics of ‘HAZAMA’.”

Park Hotel Tokyo Art Project Manager Yoshitomo Fujikawa said:

“The completion of this art installation of the elevator hall is indeed befitting of an art hotel. We hope that all visitors will enjoy this.”

Park Hotel Tokyo hopes that more guests will enjoy the “beauty of Japan” through this new art work in the form of an elevator hall.

Park Hotel Tokyo, opened in 2003, is located on the 25th floor and above in the Shiodome Media Tower. The 25th floor has the lobby and reception desk besides restaurants and a bar. The city’s view can be enjoyed through the windows behind the reception desk. There are 270 guest rooms, located from the 26th to 34th floors. In 2013, Park Hotel Tokyo put forth a new concept, “Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty.” In line with this, every room on the 31st floor is decorated and turned into Artist Rooms, based on the theme “Beauty of Japan.” To offer a memorable experience in various parts of the stay, Park Hotel Tokyo will continue to maximize the role of Japanese aesthetics and hospitality.
