7:30 AM - 12:00 AM, December 6



Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

We Remember Them: The Legacy of Pan Am Flight 103
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21, 1988 claimed the lives of 270 individuals from 21 nations. Among those lost were 35 students returning home from a semester abroad through Syracuse University. This exhibition of materials donated to the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster by the victims' families, friends, advocates, and affected communities commemorates the 30th anniversary of the tragedy through an exploration of the ways in which the lives of the victims have been remembered. Whether through scholarship, public advocacy, art, or physical memorials, we ensure their lives and the lessons learned from their deaths are not forgotten.

Keisha Scarville: Alma
Light Work Gallery

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

Keisha Scarville's primary theme is the relationship between transformation and the unknown. Grounded in photography, she works across media to explore place, absence, and subjectivity.

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors.

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

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. Plus, with more kids on the Nice List than ever before, 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! Everyone is excited to see him and no one more so than his number one reindeer fan, Peppermint (her friends call her Pepper), who is hoping to get his autograph.

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. It looks like Christmas may be cancelled, but 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.

Immersed in a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution, audiences will choose their own pathways and allegiances through the space. We meet Marie, an imaginative young woman on the precipice of adulthood; her Godfather, a mysterious and eccentric inventor; and the Revolutionary, a bold soldier with a plan that could very well turn life upside down for Marie and her family. The boundary between imagination and reality blends as political, familial, and mental unrest come to a climax, and all lose sight of what and who can be trusted.

Light Work Gallery

Price: Free

Keisha Scarville's primary theme is the relationship between transformation and the unknown. Grounded in photography, she works across media to explore place, absence, and subjectivity.

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."
