What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Jeffrey Zeigler, cellist and Music Director for the National Sawdust Ensemble, will present on the topic of Survival and Evolution: Finding your voice as a 21st Century Artist.

Zeigler describes his session: Now more than ever it is clear that one’s artistic survival is dependent on one’s ability to evolve. Utilizing both audio and video examples, the presentation will share solo and collaborative work thus illustrating personal evolution through improvisation and interdisciplinary projects in order to help inspire others to find their own path in these ever changing times. It will also touch on recording techniques, and recording label curation and strategy.

Jeffrey Zeigler is one of the most innovative and versatile cellists of our time. He has been described as “fiery”, and a player who performs “with unforced simplicity and beauty of tone” by the New York Times. Acclaimed for his independent streak, Zeigler has commissioned dozens of works and is admired as a potent collaborator and unique improviser. He is the recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize, the Polar Music Prize, the President’s Merit Award from the National Academy of Recorded Arts (Grammy’s), the Chamber Music America National Service Award, and The Asia Society's Cultural Achievement Award. Following his eight year tenure as the cellist of the internationally renowned Kronos Quartet, his multifaceted career has led to collaborations with a wide array of artists from Philip Glass and Tanya Tagaq to Yo-Yo Ma and Foday Musa Suso, from Laurie Anderson and John Corigliano to Hauschka, Jad Abumrad of Radiolab and the Pulitzer Prize winning scientist Siddhartha Mukherjee.

This Composer Session will be hosted by violinist for the National Sawdust Ensemble, Miranda Cuckson.
