I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Featuring works from Jamaal Barber, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Kleaver Crus/Black Joy Project.

Drawn from the Everson's collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York.

These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

Corpus: Works by Juan Juarez
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

"Corpus" is a multi-media installation by artist Juan Juarez, incorporating photography and video divided into two sections. One explores progressive decay in the aging body/mind using a neglected domicile as symbolic metaphor. The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

This exhibition is part of the 2017 Syracuse Symposium on "Place."

I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Featuring works from Jamaal Barber, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Kleaver Crus/Black Joy Project.

Corpus: Works by Juan Juarez
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

"Corpus" is a multi-media installation by artist Juan Juarez, incorporating photography and video divided into two sections. One explores progressive decay in the aging body/mind using a neglected domicile as symbolic metaphor. The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

This exhibition is part of the 2017 Syracuse Symposium on "Place."

ArtRage Gallery

Price: $5 suggested donation
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Directed by Jean Renoir with Anna Magnani

Our mini-fest of films about theater begins with this ravishing 18th-century comic fantasy. Director Jean Renoir (son of the famed painter) shot in English in Rome's Cinecitta Studios. It all starts when stormy commedia dell'arte star Camille brings her ragtag troupe of acrobats, thespians, and comics to Peru to open a new theater. Already in hot pursuit are three suitors: a viceroy who gifts her with his prize golden coach; a bullfighter who impresses with his virility, and a young Spanish officer who wants her to live with him in the wild. Renoir's brilliantly Technicolored tribute to the actor's life also invites us to enjoy the romantic, humorous, lively spectacle of real life.

This film explores the delicate bond between "Sir," a boozy, badly-aging actor and manager of a Shakespearean travel company, and the loyal personal assistant who struggles to keep him from falling apart. Offering a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at theater life, the film brims with backstage lore, theatrical detail, and stage bound superstition. But the heart of it all is a deeply felt story of a human relationship on the brink of crisis. The two leads—Albert Finney as "Sir" and Tom Courtenay as "the dresser"—give electrifying Oscar-nominated performances.

Price: $20

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

Of Mice and Men
Central New York Playhouse

Price: $17
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Dewitt

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

"Corpus" is a multi-media installation by artist Juan Juarez, incorporating photography and video divided into two sections. One explores progressive decay in the aging body/mind using a neglected domicile as symbolic metaphor. The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

This exhibition is part of the 2017 Syracuse Symposium on "Place."

ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The film has been postponed until Monday, Mar. 20.

A film by Nevline Nnaji. Introduced by Patricia E. Clark, Chair Department of English and Creative Writing, SUNY Oswego.

Where do black women activists fit into the epochal struggles for equality and liberation during the 1960s and 70s? This feature-length documentary unearths the story of black women's political marginalization—between the male-dominated Black Power movement and second wave feminism, which was largely white and middle class—showing how each failed to recognize black women's overlapping racial and gender identities.

Archival footage and in-depth interviews with former members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), SNCC's Black Women's Liberation Committee, the Black Panther Party, Third World Women's Alliance, and the National Black Women's Feminist Organization reveal how black women mobilized, fought for recognition, and raised awareness of how sexism and class issues affected women of color within and outside The Black Power Movement and mainstream feminism. Prominently featured activists include Frances Beale, Angela Davis, Kola Boof, Nikki Giovanni, Rosemari Mealy, Judy Richardson, Gwendolyn Simmons, Deborah Singletary, and Eugenia Wiltshire.

Professor Clark will facilitate a discussion following the film.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums.

Corpus: Works by Juan Juarez
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

"Corpus" is a multi-media installation by artist Juan Juarez, incorporating photography and video divided into two sections. One explores progressive decay in the aging body/mind using a neglected domicile as symbolic metaphor. The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

This exhibition is part of the 2017 Syracuse Symposium on "Place."

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.
