Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free

• cartoons of veteran student life on campus;
• aerial shots of the main and south campuses showing changes in the landscape;
• personal items from veterans who attended Syracuse University, including a cheerleading megaphone, a postcard about arriving at Syracuse, and photographs of the inside of one of the trailers used as married student housing;

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds
SU Art Galleries

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds
SU Art Galleries

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

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.

There will be an opening reception this evening 5:00-7:00 pm.

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

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.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

A deeply compassionate look at how we are shaped by the people who hurt us, How I Learned to Drive masterfully veers in and out of personal memory and deftly traverses comedy, drama, and farce.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

There will be an exhibit reception this evening 5:00-7:00 pm. Due to the current political turmoil, Awde has respectfully declined our invitation to attend the reception to stand in solidarity with the individuals who are central to this work, and others vulnerable to these new policy changes. In lieu of a gallery talk, we will video chat with him during the reception at 6:00 pm.

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

16th Annual Series Unveiling
Syracuse Poster Project

Price: Free
City Hall Commons Atrium
201 East Washington St., Syracuse

The Syracuse Poster Project creates street art for the city's poster panels by pairing community poets with Syracuse University illustration students. The project, launched in 2001, accepts community-written haikus about downtown, the city, or the nearby countryside. Students from the University's illustration department then work on creating a scene to complement a poem of their choice.

In addition to the 15 posters being presented this year, the project also commissioned graduate student, Tong "Amy" Su to create a special illustration based on the Erie Canal, which celebrates its bicentennial. In order to create and inspire her illustrations, Su researched and found old photographs of the canal and information related to the people whose lives intersected with it. Poets were then asked to submit haikus to accompany the illustrated scene. The winning haiku was written by Ross Getman of Syracuse.

During the unveiling next Friday, the poets and artists, who will be meeting for the first time, will deliver short presentations about their work. The Downtown Committee of Syracuse will then install the posters in panels along Salina and Warren Streets, where they will be on display for one year.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

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.

Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century.

Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. By Paula Vogel.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.
