Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Lake Effect Editions" celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio. Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the Printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with, and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds, to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

A Raisin in the Sun
Syracuse Stage
Timothy Douglas, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Lorraine Hansberry's masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago's South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry's writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay.

"What If...?" Film Series: Bag it! Is your life too plastic?
Gifford Foundation

ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes — single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away"? Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? "Bag It" follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society — from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products — is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

AKIN: Keren Shavit & Eva Marie Rødbro?
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Screening begins at dusk.

The title of the exhibition points to parallels in Rødbro's and Shavit's artistic process. Both artists have work that involves them integrating into and establishing relationships within the family structures and tightly knit subcultures that they document. The title also points to the ways that both artists make the process of watching uncomfortable for the audience in ways that lead us to reflect on our own beliefs and assumptions. In the triangle of artist-subject-audience, Rødbro and Shavit don't give us signposts telling us how to respond to the images they create or where they stand as the documentarians. The artists work with vulnerable subjects: a young child trying to make sense of the adult complexities of their family life and their struggling single parent a rabbit being roughly handled at a show and the older "gentleman" who clearly takes his hobby as a rabbit fancier very seriously.

The presence of the artist behind the camera — and sometimes in front of it — adds another layer of uncertainty for us as audience members. We are led to wonder why they are there and how they gained such intimate access, questions which point to the complex relationships at the heart of all documentary. While the images are uncomfortable to watch, the artists do not give us direction on how to judge the characters or whether we should be judging them at all. The fact that much of the imagery is beautiful and compelling makes our position even more conflicted, because we do not want to simply look away. In our ambivalent position, questions of belonging and identification get messy. During a cultural moment in which the politics of looking are more fraught than ever, we are left to wonder, who do we connect with? Who is our "kin"?

Preview: On Golden Pond
Redhouse
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

Lorraine Hansberry's masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago's South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry's writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959.

AKIN: Keren Shavit & Eva Marie Rødbro?
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Screening begins at dusk.

The title of the exhibition points to parallels in Rødbro's and Shavit's artistic process. Both artists have work that involves them integrating into and establishing relationships within the family structures and tightly knit subcultures that they document. The title also points to the ways that both artists make the process of watching uncomfortable for the audience in ways that lead us to reflect on our own beliefs and assumptions. In the triangle of artist-subject-audience, Rødbro and Shavit don't give us signposts telling us how to respond to the images they create or where they stand as the documentarians. The artists work with vulnerable subjects: a young child trying to make sense of the adult complexities of their family life and their struggling single parent a rabbit being roughly handled at a show and the older "gentleman" who clearly takes his hobby as a rabbit fancier very seriously.

The presence of the artist behind the camera — and sometimes in front of it — adds another layer of uncertainty for us as audience members. We are led to wonder why they are there and how they gained such intimate access, questions which point to the complex relationships at the heart of all documentary. While the images are uncomfortable to watch, the artists do not give us direction on how to judge the characters or whether we should be judging them at all. The fact that much of the imagery is beautiful and compelling makes our position even more conflicted, because we do not want to simply look away. In our ambivalent position, questions of belonging and identification get messy. During a cultural moment in which the politics of looking are more fraught than ever, we are left to wonder, who do we connect with? Who is our "kin"?

Redhouse

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

Lorraine Hansberry's masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago's South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry's writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959.

Recent Acquisitions in Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

A high-spirited rite of passage at turns warm, funny and tough; an account of a young man from his early recognition of being different through his political and sexual awakening, and coming to terms with the horror of the AIDS virus.

Performed in benefit of The Vera House. Intended for mature audiences, for language and partial nudity.

On Golden Pond
Redhouse
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

On-site parking is available in the attached garage on Clinton Street.

A Raisin in the Sun
Syracuse Stage
Timothy Douglas, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Lorraine Hansberry's masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago's South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry's writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.
