Donald R. Waful: The Remarkable Life Story of a Local Syracusan
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Donald R. Waful has been a dedicated Syracuse citizen for nearly a century. As a young adult, he attended Syracuse University where he earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He enlisted in the United States army in 1941 and served overseas when the U.S. entered World War II. He met his future wife, army nurse Olga "Cassie" Casciolini, while stationed in Northern Ireland. He then served in the North African campaign where he was taken as a prisoner of war in 1942. He would remain a POW first in Italy, then in Poland, for the duration of the war. He was reunited with Cassie at the end of World War II, afterward settling in Syracuse. Don went on to have a career in insurance and served as President of the Syracuse Chiefs baseball team for 35 years. Waful has remained active in the Syracuse community, both with Syracuse University and the Chiefs baseball team.

This exhibit, designed and installed by SUNY Potsdam undergraduate student Mahala Nyberg, examinies the life of Don Waful, who is nearing 102 years old, and details his experiences during World War II as well as his experiences before and after the war in Syracuse.

Darryl Hughto: From Diamonds to Sailboats
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Forty-three years after his debut exhibition at the Everson, Darryl Hughto returns for a career-spanning show that examines the artist's tireless interest in the power and possibility of a single shape: the diamond. Hughto began painting diamonds in 1973, developing several variations on the classic form, from diamonds inscribed on a rectangular canvas to square canvases turned on their point, becoming diamonds themselves. While the diamond never truly left his work, Hughto eventually explored other abstract styles until early 2016, when he rediscovered the diamond in the unfurled sails of boats as they floated across his canvas. This led to a new series of work featuring abstract, boldly colored sailboats set in dramatic seascapes. Presented side by side, the diamonds and sailboats illustrate the full circle of Hughto's career.

The Art of the Tile
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Ceramic tiles are one of the world's oldest decorative art forms, dating back to at least the fourth millennium BCE. Tiles served both an ornamental and functional purpose, covering interior and exterior building surfaces as well as tabletops and other pieces of furniture.

The Everson's expansive ceramics collection includes over 500 tiles made in countries around the world between the 17th and 20th centuries. This exhibition presents a selection of these tiles, many of which have never before been on view.

Visions of America
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

It's Only a Play
Central New York Playhouse
Stephfond Brunson, director

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

It's the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs where a group of insiders have staked themselves out in the producer's bedroom, waiting for the reviews to come in. Included are the excitable young author; the brilliant but unstable director (who courts failure and is devastated when his work is well received); the pill-popping leading lady (who is hoping to revive her career after a series of flop movies); and the playwright's best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series—which has since been cancelled. Also present are a fawning, hypocritical drama critic (who is a closet playwright); a would-be singer working as a part-time servant; and a hard-boiled lady taxi driver who has seen it all, many times over. The good natured bonhommie with which the evening begins grows steadily bitchier—and funnier—as the reviews (all bad) come in, and those assembled seek desperately to pin the blame on each other. But, as euphoria slides into despair, the narcissism, ambition, childishness and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre and its denizens take over, and as the curtain falls plans are eagerly afoot for their next venture—this one sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

It's Only a Play
Central New York Playhouse
Stephfond Brunson, director

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

It's the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs where a group of insiders have staked themselves out in the producer's bedroom, waiting for the reviews to come in. Included are the excitable young author; the brilliant but unstable director (who courts failure and is devastated when his work is well received); the pill-popping leading lady (who is hoping to revive her career after a series of flop movies); and the playwright's best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series—which has since been cancelled. Also present are a fawning, hypocritical drama critic (who is a closet playwright); a would-be singer working as a part-time servant; and a hard-boiled lady taxi driver who has seen it all, many times over. The good natured bonhommie with which the evening begins grows steadily bitchier—and funnier—as the reviews (all bad) come in, and those assembled seek desperately to pin the blame on each other. But, as euphoria slides into despair, the narcissism, ambition, childishness and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre and its denizens take over, and as the curtain falls plans are eagerly afoot for their next venture—this one sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.

Donald R. Waful: The Remarkable Life Story of a Local Syracusan
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Donald R. Waful has been a dedicated Syracuse citizen for nearly a century. As a young adult, he attended Syracuse University where he earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He enlisted in the United States army in 1941 and served overseas when the U.S. entered World War II. He met his future wife, army nurse Olga "Cassie" Casciolini, while stationed in Northern Ireland. He then served in the North African campaign where he was taken as a prisoner of war in 1942. He would remain a POW first in Italy, then in Poland, for the duration of the war. He was reunited with Cassie at the end of World War II, afterward settling in Syracuse. Don went on to have a career in insurance and served as President of the Syracuse Chiefs baseball team for 35 years. Waful has remained active in the Syracuse community, both with Syracuse University and the Chiefs baseball team.

This exhibit, designed and installed by SUNY Potsdam undergraduate student Mahala Nyberg, examinies the life of Don Waful, who is nearing 102 years old, and details his experiences during World War II as well as his experiences before and after the war in Syracuse.

Darryl Hughto: From Diamonds to Sailboats
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Forty-three years after his debut exhibition at the Everson, Darryl Hughto returns for a career-spanning show that examines the artist's tireless interest in the power and possibility of a single shape: the diamond. Hughto began painting diamonds in 1973, developing several variations on the classic form, from diamonds inscribed on a rectangular canvas to square canvases turned on their point, becoming diamonds themselves. While the diamond never truly left his work, Hughto eventually explored other abstract styles until early 2016, when he rediscovered the diamond in the unfurled sails of boats as they floated across his canvas. This led to a new series of work featuring abstract, boldly colored sailboats set in dramatic seascapes. Presented side by side, the diamonds and sailboats illustrate the full circle of Hughto's career.

Rodin: The Human Experience

"Rodin: The Human Experience (Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections) presents 32 figures in bronze by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the French sculptor who left behind 19th century academic traditions to focus on conveying the passion and vitality of the human spirit. Considered in his lifetime to be the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo, Rodin exerted a tremendous influence on artists of subsequent generations, such as Matisse, Brancusi, and Maillol. His vigorous modeling emphasized his personal response to the subject, and he captured movement and emotion by altering traditional poses and gestures. Rodin's sculpture is often considered a crucial link between traditional and modern art.

Visions of America
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

The Art of the Tile
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Ceramic tiles are one of the world's oldest decorative art forms, dating back to at least the fourth millennium BCE. Tiles served both an ornamental and functional purpose, covering interior and exterior building surfaces as well as tabletops and other pieces of furniture.

The Everson's expansive ceramics collection includes over 500 tiles made in countries around the world between the 17th and 20th centuries. This exhibition presents a selection of these tiles, many of which have never before been on view.

It's Only a Play
Central New York Playhouse
Stephfond Brunson, director

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

It's the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs where a group of insiders have staked themselves out in the producer's bedroom, waiting for the reviews to come in. Included are the excitable young author; the brilliant but unstable director (who courts failure and is devastated when his work is well received); the pill-popping leading lady (who is hoping to revive her career after a series of flop movies); and the playwright's best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series—which has since been cancelled. Also present are a fawning, hypocritical drama critic (who is a closet playwright); a would-be singer working as a part-time servant; and a hard-boiled lady taxi driver who has seen it all, many times over. The good natured bonhommie with which the evening begins grows steadily bitchier—and funnier—as the reviews (all bad) come in, and those assembled seek desperately to pin the blame on each other. But, as euphoria slides into despair, the narcissism, ambition, childishness and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre and its denizens take over, and as the curtain falls plans are eagerly afoot for their next venture—this one sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.
