Everson Museum of Art

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.

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.

Rodin: The Human Experience
SU Art Galleries

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

"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.

Christopher Harris: Extended Forecast
Urban Video Project

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

The works in this exhibition by the award-winning filmmaker each explore the cosmological resonances of the seemingly mundane. In speaking about the broad goals of his work, Harris said, "These are films that are not there to tell an easy story or to narrate a palatable history. They're there to really make you think about and explore cinema's fundamental relationship to American racial identity, pushing us to turn the medium inside out and see how to stretch its potential for new conversations about film and race."

Sunshine State (Extended Forecast)
(2007, 8 minutes)
Somewhere in a quiet outer suburb of the Milky Way Galaxy, we live our lives in the pleasant warmth of our middle-of-the-road star, the Sun. Slowly but surely we will reach the point when there will be one last perfect sunny day. The sun will swell up, scorch the earth, and finally consume it.

28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark)
(2009, 3 minutes)
This piece approximates a small child's fantasy world in the dark. In a series of close-ups, the nightlight is transformed into a meditative star-spangled sky. An improvisation edited in-camera and shot on a single reel. The stars swirl in silence.

Distant Shores
(2016, 3 minutes)
A sunny afternoon on a tour boat in Chicago is haunted by the specter of other voyages.

On view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

A stunningly fresh take on one of Stephen Sondheim's most popular works, this production nudges the familiar characters of Into the Woods a little further into the fearful, dark forest. Sondheim based his sophisticated musical on the unsettling tales of the Brothers Grimm, populated it with slightly skewed versions of storybook favorites, and set them on a course wherein having wishes granted is not the same as having wishes come true. Good storytellers know unforeseen consequences are always lurking deep in the narrative.

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.

Imaging Disability in Film: Intelligent Lives
Syracuse International Film Festival

Price: $10
Shemin Auditorium, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

The documentary profiles three young people. Naieer, 17, attends a Massachusetts public high school and seems headed for a career in visual arts. Naomie, 25, who spent years at a Rhode Island vocational school that was found to be exploiting its students for cheap labor, now works in the state capital building, attends beauty school, and aspires to support herself financially. And 34-year-old Micah studies at Syracuse University, where he works as a teacher's assistant. He has become an advocate for the disabled.

Academy Award winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

New Hampshire-based filmmaker Dan Habib, the producer, director, and cinematographer of Intelligent Lives, will present the documentary by Skype. Micah Fialka Feldman will be present for Q&A. Directed by Micha Feldman (70 minutes)

The People of the Standing Stone
Directed by Ric Burns (documentary, 25 minutes)
Narrated by Academy Award Winner Kevin Costner and directed by Emmy Award winner Ric Burns, the film explores the little known yet crucial history of the extraordinary contributions of one Native American people, the Oneidas, who during the darkest hours of the Revolutionary War became the only member of the Six Nation Iroquois Confederacy to side with rebelling colonists.

Three Films by Jeffrey Palmer

Isabelle's Garden
Isabelle's Garden is an uplifting story of a community coming together in reciprocity, through the hopes and dreams of a young Choctaw girl and her garden. Directed by Jeffrey Palmer (documentary, 9 minutes)

Grave Misgivings
Grave Misgivings explores the lasting power of Geronimo's name and image. The distinction between his iconographic cultural presence and the life and death of the real man is explored in a young native artist's visit to Fort Sill, OK, where she visits the Old Guardhouse where he was imprisoned, and his grave. Her efforts to reach the real man through real places result in a new painting, which she creates high on Medicine Bluff, suggesting that, in the final analysis, it is in iconic representation that Geronimo's spirit lives. Directed by Jeffrey Palmer (documentary, 11 minutes)

Origins
Origins represents a grandfather's and grandson's perspectives of Kiowa (Native American) history and storytelling, which together form a visual document tracing the director's ancestral beginnings. These perspectives range from oral narratives and historical analyses, to the director's personal memoirs of growing up on Kiowa allotment land in southwestern Oklahoma. These generational voices lead the audience through the expansive landscape of "Kiowa Country," surveying the origins, homelands, and ceremonial sites of Kiowa existence and identity.

Sami Blood
Syracuse International Film Festival

Price: $10
Shemin Auditorium, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Winner of more than 25 international awards, Sami Blood is about 78-year-old Elle-Marja (who calls herself Christina these days) who returns with her son Olle and granddaughter Sann, to Lapland, and her childhood society, to attend her younger sister's funeral. Elle-Marja doesn't want to be there. She does not like the Sami people, calls them thieves and liars, and even though her first language is Southern Sami, refuses to speak it and pretends to not understand it. She even refuses to spend the night at her late sister's family home and would rather check into a hotel.

In the 1930s, 14-year-old Elle-Marja is sent with her younger sister Njenna to the nomad school. It is a boarding school for Sami children where a blonde teacher from Smaland teaches them Swedish, and to know their place. Speaking Sami, even just among themselves outside of the classroom, results in beatings. Her feeling of alienation is only intensified when scientists from the State Institute for Racial Biology in Uppsala came to the school to measure and photograph the class naked in the presence of each other, teachers, and neighborhood boys.

After threatening a group of boys with her father's old knife because they called her racist names and slurs, they nick the edge of her ear like the Sami people do with reindeer. She changes out of her gakti and takes one of her teacher's dresses from a clothes line.

A group of young soldiers passes her on their way to a dance and asks her to come along — it is the first time anyone who is not Sami has treated her like a human being. Elle-Marja sneaks off to the dance, and for a couple of hours she gets to experience how it feels to have the respect of others and be treated with decency by them without question. That is when she decides that she will leave Lapland, go to Uppsala, and study at the university.

School staff remove her from the dance and she is given a spanking with a switch. The school refuse her request to advance her studies in Uppsala, because the curriculum for the Sami is different from that in other Swedish schools and they feel that the Sami could not cope with urban society. She runs away to town, steals some clothes, burns her gaeptie, and invites herself to stay with Niklas, whom she met at the dance. His parents ask her to leave and he will not lend her the money she needs for her school fees, forcing her to go home. Eventually her mother gives her the money to continue her schooling. Directed by Amanda Kernell (fiction, 110 minutes).

Into the Woods
Syracuse University Drama Department

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

A stunningly fresh take on one of Stephen Sondheim's most popular works, this production nudges the familiar characters of Into the Woods a little further into the fearful, dark forest. Sondheim based his sophisticated musical on the unsettling tales of the Brothers Grimm, populated it with slightly skewed versions of storybook favorites, and set them on a course wherein having wishes granted is not the same as having wishes come true. Good storytellers know unforeseen consequences are always lurking deep in the narrative.

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.

Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer" breaks down the barriers between a survivor's public persona and the private struggles with the disease. In 2010, Tula Goenka, herself a breast cancer survivor, was the first of three subjects to be photographed for a prototype of the project. She has relaunched "Look Now" as a photography exhibition and multimedia installation with a new collaborative team. Cindy Bell, also a breast cancer survivor, is the project photographer.

In 2018-19, "Look Now" focuses on the personal stories of survivors from Central New York. Interactive text, graphics, mirrors, and an experimental silent film enhance the exhibition's visual core, which presents 44 participants — 25 with clothed photographic portraits and images of bare chests, and 19 who have chosen to remain anonymous except for their bare-chest close-ups.

Preview: Possessing Harriet
Syracuse Stage
Tazewell Thompson, director

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

In 1839, Harriet Powell, a young, mixed-race, enslaved woman slips away from a hotel in Syracuse, New York, and escapes from the Southerner who owns her. With the aid of a mysterious free black man named Thomas Leonard, Harriet finds temporary safe harbor in an attic room at the home of impassioned abolitionist Gerrit Smith. With the slave catchers in pursuit, Harriet awaits her nighttime departure on the dangerous journey to Canada in the company of Smith's young cousin Elizabeth Cady, an outspoken advocate for women's equality. Confronted with new and difficult ideas about race, identity, and equality, and with confusion, fear, and desperation multiplying, Harriet is forced to the precipice of radical self-re-imagination and a reckoning with the heartrending cost of freedom.

"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.

Christopher Harris: Extended Forecast
Urban Video Project

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

The works in this exhibition by the award-winning filmmaker each explore the cosmological resonances of the seemingly mundane. In speaking about the broad goals of his work, Harris said, "These are films that are not there to tell an easy story or to narrate a palatable history. They're there to really make you think about and explore cinema's fundamental relationship to American racial identity, pushing us to turn the medium inside out and see how to stretch its potential for new conversations about film and race."

Sunshine State (Extended Forecast)
(2007, 8 minutes)
Somewhere in a quiet outer suburb of the Milky Way Galaxy, we live our lives in the pleasant warmth of our middle-of-the-road star, the Sun. Slowly but surely we will reach the point when there will be one last perfect sunny day. The sun will swell up, scorch the earth, and finally consume it.

28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark)
(2009, 3 minutes)
This piece approximates a small child's fantasy world in the dark. In a series of close-ups, the nightlight is transformed into a meditative star-spangled sky. An improvisation edited in-camera and shot on a single reel. The stars swirl in silence.

Distant Shores
(2016, 3 minutes)
A sunny afternoon on a tour boat in Chicago is haunted by the specter of other voyages.

On view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

George Saunders
University Lectures

Price: Free
Hendricks Chapel
Syracuse University, Syracuse

George Saunders is author of nine books, including the short-story collection Tenth of December—a finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the inaugural Folio Prize (for the best work of fiction in English) and the Story Prize (best short story collection)—and his first full-length novel, Lincoln in the Bardo, a No. 1 New York Times Bestseller and winner of the Man Booker Prize.

A member of the College of Arts and Sciences since 1997, Saunders is a professor of English teaching in the college's renowned Creative Writing Program. This past spring, he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

In 2013, Saunders was named to Time magazine's TIME 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. That same year, he was awarded the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction. He has also won four National Magazine Awards (from seven nominations), a PEN/Malamud Award and a World Fantasy Award.

He has received fellowships from the MacArthur Foundation, the Lannan Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Guggenheim Foundation

In May 2013, Saunders delivered a memorable convocation address to College of Arts and Sciences graduates. The New York Times posted the transcript on its website a couple months later, and the speech quickly went viral—within days, it was viewed more than one million times. It inspired an animated short voiced by Saunders. And the following spring, his moving essay on kindness was published in book form, Congratulations, by the way: Some Thoughts on Kindness, and became a bestseller.

In addition to Tenth of December, Saunders has written several popular short-story collections, including Pastoralia and CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, which were New York Times Notable Books. Another collection, In Persuasion Nation (Penguin, 2006), was a finalist for the 2006 Story Prize.

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.

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza

The works in this exhibition by the award-winning filmmaker each explore the cosmological resonances of the seemingly mundane. In speaking about the broad goals of his work, Harris said, "These are films that are not there to tell an easy story or to narrate a palatable history. They're there to really make you think about and explore cinema's fundamental relationship to American racial identity, pushing us to turn the medium inside out and see how to stretch its potential for new conversations about film and race."

Sunshine State (Extended Forecast)
(2007, 8 minutes)
Somewhere in a quiet outer suburb of the Milky Way Galaxy, we live our lives in the pleasant warmth of our middle-of-the-road star, the Sun. Slowly but surely we will reach the point when there will be one last perfect sunny day. The sun will swell up, scorch the earth, and finally consume it.

28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark)
(2009, 3 minutes)
This piece approximates a small child's fantasy world in the dark. In a series of close-ups, the nightlight is transformed into a meditative star-spangled sky. An improvisation edited in-camera and shot on a single reel. The stars swirl in silence.

Distant Shores
(2016, 3 minutes)
A sunny afternoon on a tour boat in Chicago is haunted by the specter of other voyages.

On view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage

In 1839, Harriet Powell, a young, mixed-race, enslaved woman slips away from a hotel in Syracuse, New York, and escapes from the Southerner who owns her. With the aid of a mysterious free black man named Thomas Leonard, Harriet finds temporary safe harbor in an attic room at the home of impassioned abolitionist Gerrit Smith. With the slave catchers in pursuit, Harriet awaits her nighttime departure on the dangerous journey to Canada in the company of Smith's young cousin Elizabeth Cady, an outspoken advocate for women's equality. Confronted with new and difficult ideas about race, identity, and equality, and with confusion, fear, and desperation multiplying, Harriet is forced to the precipice of radical self-re-imagination and a reckoning with the heartrending cost of freedom.

Sondheim based his sophisticated musical on the unsettling tales of the Brothers Grimm, populated it with slightly skewed versions of storybook favorites, and set them on a course wherein having wishes granted is not the same as having wishes come true. Good storytellers know unforeseen consequences are always lurking deep in the narrative.

(2009, 3 minutes)
This piece approximates a small child's fantasy world in the dark. In a series of close-ups, the nightlight is transformed into a meditative star-spangled sky. An improvisation edited in-camera and shot on a single reel. The stars swirl in silence.

Distant Shores
(2016, 3 minutes)
A sunny afternoon on a tour boat in Chicago is haunted by the specter of other voyages.

On view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

Into the Woods
Syracuse University Drama Department
David Lowenstein, director

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

A stunningly fresh take on one of Stephen Sondheim's most popular works, this production nudges the familiar characters of Into the Woods a little further into the fearful, dark forest. Sondheim based his sophisticated musical on the unsettling tales of the Brothers Grimm, populated it with slightly skewed versions of storybook favorites, and set them on a course wherein having wishes granted is not the same as having wishes come true. Good storytellers know unforeseen consequences are always lurking deep in the narrative.

Possessing Harriet
Syracuse Stage
Tazewell Thompson, director

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

In 1839, Harriet Powell, a young, mixed-race, enslaved woman slips away from a hotel in Syracuse, New York, and escapes from the Southerner who owns her. With the aid of a mysterious free black man named Thomas Leonard, Harriet finds temporary safe harbor in an attic room at the home of impassioned abolitionist Gerrit Smith. With the slave catchers in pursuit, Harriet awaits her nighttime departure on the dangerous journey to Canada in the company of Smith's young cousin Elizabeth Cady, an outspoken advocate for women's equality. Confronted with new and difficult ideas about race, identity, and equality, and with confusion, fear, and desperation multiplying, Harriet is forced to the precipice of radical self-re-imagination and a reckoning with the heartrending cost of freedom.

A world premiere by award-winning playwright and Syracuse Stage associate artistic director Kyle Bass. Commissioned by the Onondaga Historical Association.
