This exhibit re-creates Salina Street in our large first-floor gallery, using photographs and artifacts from the many shops, so that visitors to our downtown museum can "stroll" down the grand old street once again.

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.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

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.

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.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

Preview: 12 Angry Men

James Still, director

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

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

Design Talk: Seeking Agency in the City
Everson Museum of Art
Featuring Jeffrey Kruth

Price: Free with museum admission
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

It is well understood that the 21st century will be an urban era. With this transformation, the contemporary city also faces seemingly insurmountable challenges in the coming years: environmental, social, political and economic. By examining historic case studies of urban transformations, as well as work from his own practice, Jeffrey Kruth suggests that the architect and urbanist's disciplinary toolkit is both well-suited to investigate these contemporary challenges, while also pointing out the broader disciplinary frameworks that might further foster agency in the city.

Jeffrey Kruth is an Assistant Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at Miami University. His work examines the disciplinary capacities of architecture's engagement with the city. By working closely with communities, his work critically engages the social and spatial realities of place.

Everson Museum of Art Plaza

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Preview: 12 Angry Men
Syracuse Stage
James Still, director

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

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.

A Chorus Line
Syracuse University Drama Department

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

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes

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.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Everson Museum of Art

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.

The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building.

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.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

Plan B (and C and D) doesn't appear to be any more fruitful for the hapless duo, leading to dead ends involving a wealthy widow, a confused LGBT organization, and a hot-headed shipping foreman. The resolution of this increasingly dire situation will require previously untapped resourcefulness from Ruth, a demanding commitment from Crosby, her roommates Meg and Holly, and a disconcerting insight into Errol's ventriloquist horde.

GoldenOak with Special Guest J. Mettler

Price: $10 in advance, $15 at the door if available
The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

When you think of trendy musical scenes, Portland, Maine, might not be first on your list. Yet the homespun, heartwarming music of family-oriented indie folk group GoldenOak provides evidence that the dense woods of the Pine Tree State might just be a better muse than the slick streets of New York and LA.

GoldenOak is driven by the songwriting and harmonies of the brother-sister duo Zak and Lena Kendall. After a bit of a recording hiatus and a shift in personnel, the group is back with an enchanting pair of songs. "River" and "Poet and the Painter" find this collective simultaneously building on previous strengths while also striking out in an interesting new direction. That music scene has thrown its arms around GoldenOak, and, in return, the band is helping to draw more attention to it with these excellent new songs.

CNY native J. Mettler will open the show with his poetic, profound, folk-rooted and blues-oriented acoustic epics. J's contrasting peaceful presence and soulful intensity make for a memorable performance you don't want to miss.

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.

Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before—keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.

A Chorus Line
Syracuse University Drama Department
Brian J. Marcum, director

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

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

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.

Earth Piece

Everson Museum of Art

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.

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.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

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

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

12 Angry Men
Syracuse Stage
James Still, director

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

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.

A Chorus Line
Syracuse University Drama Department

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

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

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.

Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Mixed Doubles

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.

The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

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.

Reuben's (60) kidneys are failing and his son Gadi (35), wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his father's life. However, the transplant committee objects to the procedure claiming that Reuben, acting as Gadi's sole legal guardian, does not have the right to authorize such an invasive procedure. Gadi, who recently lost his mother, is afraid of losing his father as well. He feels he finally has the chance to do something meaningful; to become a man and stand on his own. He's furious with the committee's decision and sets out to fight for his right to save his father's life. Through the film's portrayal of a relationship full of love, rejection, and codependency, it manages to shed some light and question the importance of human life, human connection, and whether life is even possible without either one of them.

And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before—keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.

12 Angry Men
Syracuse Stage
James Still, director

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

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.

A Chorus Line
Syracuse University Drama Department
Brian J. Marcum, director

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

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

The Chicago-based Joe Policastro Trio will bring a new direction in jazz to Syracuse when they celebrate the release of their latest effort, Nothing Here Belongs. The group has made their mark with refreshing new takes on a wild variety of songs by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Talking Heads, Santo & Johnny, Leonard Bernstein, and others.

A regular in clubs and festivals nationwide, Policastro's "alt-jazz" approach creates a musical hybrid with wide appeal to all audiences. Their uber-eclectic approach was forged in an extensive residency at the sleek Pops for Champagne jazz restaurant in Chicago that has blossomed into a busy full-time touring unit with four unique and popular recordings to their credit. The trio's members were all in-demand players at the time of the group's creation, having played with the best, including Phil Woods, Diane Schuur, and Patricia Barber. The trio now tours extensively in the US and Canada and has performed for President Barack Obama. Their first-time appearance in Syracuse marks the easternmost stop on their current tour.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

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.

Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

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.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

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.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

12 Angry Men
Syracuse Stage
James Still, director

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

1954. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. His fate rests with twelve jurors. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the courtroom guard. As the jurors deliberate, the impulse to quickly convict is thwarted by one holdout, who insists on a close evaluation of the evidence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the youth's innocence, he argues the case for further questioning. Then gradually and in different ways, other jurors begin to change their minds, a development that fuels simmering tension and threatens volatile confrontation. Prejudices, passions, and human failings collide in a search for truth as a young man's life hangs in the balance. A taut and absorbing drama as compelling now as when it was written.
