17 Daytona Beach International Festival "Face the Music" Promotional Folder for Spring 2009 Concerts
Daytona Beach DBIF 2009 Single Page Flyer Good+ 28 In. Tall By 9.5 In Wide 
A direct-mail leaflet announcing more than 20 cultural events in the Daytona Beach area, including six concerts by the London Symphony Orchestra, during the period of April 16 to May 2, 2009. Within the folder is a smaller ticket-order form. Lightly rippled. The marketing theme "Face the Music" became ironic because this festival turned out to be the LSO's last biannual visit to Daytona Beach, a tradition that began in 1985. The visits were heavily subsidized by the Daytona Beach News-Journal over the years, but a federal judge halted the funding after Cox Newspapers, co-owner of the newspaper, successfully sued Herbert M. "Tippen" Davidson Jr., publisher and majority owner, for "wasting" the newspaper's profits on arts projects. Attempts to obtain replacement grants failed, and an LSO visit planned for 2010 was cancelled.

18 Daytona Beach News-Journal Center Stage
Daytona Beach, Florida Daytona Beach News-Journal 2006 First Edition Magazine Very Good No Jacket Souvenir Program 4to -- 10.75 in High 
47 pp. on glossy stock. A full-color special section of the Daytona Beach News-Journal to mark the opening of The News-Journal Center, a $29 million performing arts building, in July 2006. Light wear, no markings. Many color photos, plus advertisements by Daytona's major companies and institutions. The publication marked the zenith of the civic influence and power of the Davidson family, former owners of the News-Journal. The glitzy art complex, conceived by Tippen Davidson, the newspaper's chief executive, triggered a legal battle with Cox Newspapers, the newspaper's minority shareholder. Cox sued the Davidsons for corporate waste, eventually succeeding in ending the newspaper's subsidy of the complex and its main tenant, the Seaside Music Theater. As the lawsuit dragged on, Cox gained control of the newspaper, Tippen Davidson died, and Cox booted the rest of the family and their lawyer from the paper's management. The financially ruined arts center was transferred to Daytona State College for a token payment, and operates currently as the Mike Curb College of Music, Arts and Sciences. The Seaside troupe went out of business, and about 300 newspaper workers lost their jobs as Cox imposed austerity to boost profits.
