The Arts Extension Service of UMass Amherst is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary. That’s 40 years of providing resources and training on how to run an institution, run an artist-based business, plan a community arts program or a community for the arts, developing arts leaders, and embracing technology in areas like distance learning, webinars, and adoption of cutting edge ideas in education like certificate programs and online degrees.

To commemorate this occasion UMass Amherst turned to Ambient Film Production to produce a five minute video that would capture not only the importance of this anniversary (through interviews with key figures such as State Senator Stan Rosenberg and President of Americans for the Arts Robert Lynch) but would convey it’s legacy and worldwide impact.

Here is a pre-release version (the final version was screened at the National Endowment for the Arts symposium at the Umass Campus Center on September 26, 2013).
