Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

From Gilded to Gustav: The Victorian and Arts & Crafts Era in Onondaga County
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

In many respects, the Arts and Crafts movement was a rebuke of the ornate styling, designs, and increasing mechanization of production in the Victorian period. The displays will allow for museum patrons to see these contrasting styles up close.

Earth Piece
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Late Night Space Force" features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon's presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Wendy Red Star: Baaeétitchish (One Who Is Talented)
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Baaeétitchish (One Who Is Talented), a solo exhibition by artist Wendy Red Star. Red Star works across disciplines to explore the intersections of Native American ideologies and colonialist structures, both historically and in contemporary society. Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, Red Star's work is informed both by her cultural heritage and her engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance. An avid researcher of archives and historical narratives, Red Star seeks to incorporate and recast her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty and unsettling. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women's voices in contemporary art.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

An avid researcher of archives and historical narratives, Red Star seeks to incorporate and recast her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty and unsettling. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women's voices in contemporary art.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations ... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Earth Piece
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Everson Museum of Art

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Dasher's Magical Gift

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Dasher's Magical Gift returns to the stage with a colorful cast of characters, beautiful ballet and music, ample doses of humor and heart, and some high-flying holiday magic for children and families.

It's a few days before the big day. Everyone in Santa's workshop is buzzing with excitement about the biggest Christmas ever! Presents are being made, Santa is checking his list, and the reindeer are getting ready for the big flight. Santa has announced that he is going to choose an extra reindeer to help pull the sleigh. But the biggest excitement of all is the arrival of Dasher, leader of Santa's sleigh team and fastest of them all!

Unfortunately, Dasher has a secret problem. It seems that amidst all of the glamour of being a holiday celebrity, Dasher has lost his ability to fly! As Christmas approaches and everyone is counting on him to lead the way, it looks like he doesn't have enough Christmas spirit to guide the sleigh. Will Christmas be canceled? With the help of Pepper and a couple of very lost penguins, Dasher will remember what the holiday season is all about and the Spirit of Christmas will prevail.

With direction and choreography by Larry Crabtree, story by Matt Chiorini, costume design by Lindsey Quay Sikes, lighting design by John Czajkowski, additional costumes by Catherine Kingsley, and performed by students from Dance Centre North.
