Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Recent Acquisitions in Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

Lecture
 

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM, March 14



Murder, Conspiracy, and Freemasonry in the Early Canal Era
Erie Canal Museum

Price: $5
Erie Canal Museum
318 Erie Blvd. E., Syracuse

Mark Schmeller, associate professor of history at Syracuse University, presents a talk about the infamous 1826 kidnapping and (likely) murder of William Morgan. Morgan, a laborer in Batavia, NY, had threatened to reveal the secrets of the Freemasons, the most powerful fraternal order in the nation. His abduction and possible murder lit a firestorm of popular outrage that nearly destroyed the Freemason order, and led to the formation of the Anti-Masonic Party, the first significant third party in American political history. The Morgan controversy vividly illustrates a number of developments crucial to understanding the "Jacksonian" era in American history, which was marked by a new tone of evangelical moralism that would profoundly shape antebellum politics and culture.

Free parking is in designated Museum/Visitor Center spots in the lot across from the Museum under routes 81 and 690.

Kinky Boots
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Kinky Boots is Broadway's huge-hearted, high-heeled hit! With songs by Grammy and Tony Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen's shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father's expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory's future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), Kinky Boots is the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

AKIN: Keren Shavit & Eva Marie Rødbro?
Urban Video Project

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

Screening begins at dusk.

The title of the exhibition points to parallels in Rødbro's and Shavit's artistic process. Both artists have work that involves them integrating into and establishing relationships within the family structures and tightly knit subcultures that they document. The title also points to the ways that both artists make the process of watching uncomfortable for the audience in ways that lead us to reflect on our own beliefs and assumptions. In the triangle of artist-subject-audience, Rødbro and Shavit don't give us signposts telling us how to respond to the images they create or where they stand as the documentarians. The artists work with vulnerable subjects: a young child trying to make sense of the adult complexities of their family life and their struggling single parent a rabbit being roughly handled at a show and the older "gentleman" who clearly takes his hobby as a rabbit fancier very seriously.

The presence of the artist behind the camera — and sometimes in front of it — adds another layer of uncertainty for us as audience members. We are led to wonder why they are there and how they gained such intimate access, questions which point to the complex relationships at the heart of all documentary. While the images are uncomfortable to watch, the artists do not give us direction on how to judge the characters or whether we should be judging them at all. The fact that much of the imagery is beautiful and compelling makes our position even more conflicted, because we do not want to simply look away. In our ambivalent position, questions of belonging and identification get messy. During a cultural moment in which the politics of looking are more fraught than ever, we are left to wonder, who do we connect with? Who is our "kin"?

Film Screening: The Age of Love
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Free
Hosmer Auditorium, Everson Museum
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Screening followed by a live Q&A with the director.

An unprecedented speed dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds serves as the backdrop for The Age of Love, an alternately poignant and funny look at the search for love among the senior set.

Over one summer, we intimately follow as ten speed daters — recently widowed, long-divorced, or never-married — prepare for the big day, endure a rush of encounters, then anxiously receive their results. Fearlessly candid about themselves and what they're seeking, these WWII babies are spurred to take stock of life-worn bodies and still hopeful hearts.

Then, as they head out on the dates that result, comic and bittersweet moments reveal how worries over physical appearance, romance and rejection, loss and new beginnings change, or don't change, from first love to the far reaches of life.

The Age of Love is a story of the universality of love and desire, regardless of age.

On Golden Pond
Redhouse
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

On-site parking is available in the attached garage on Clinton Street.

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

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

Older than Ireland
Palace Theatre

Price: $10
Palace Theater
2384 James St., Syracuse

Directed by Alex Fegan (The Irish Pub), Older than Ireland is a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of 30 Irish men and women aged 100 or over. Often funny and at times poignant, the film explores each centenarian's journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland.

Reflecting on such key events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, from the magic of their wedding day to the tragic loss of their loved ones, these centenarians have lived through it all. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning.

From the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely, to Ireland's oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan, we meet a colourful cast of characters from all walks of life, from the four corners of Ireland. These centenarians are our living history and these are their extraordinary stories.

Milkweed
Folkus Project

Price: $15 non-members, $12 members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Concert rescheduled from January 5.

Milkweed is the collaboration of three artists—Joseph Alston, guitar and vocals; Jacqualine Colombo, guitar and vocals; and Peter Lister, upright bass and vocals. Without committing to one genre, Milkweed has pulled from many of the great aspects of American music and created their own brand of American song and story telling.

Whether it is bluegrass guitar flat picking, Chicago blues harmonica, Irish ballads, or Jersey shore folk songs, Milkweed weaves together the sounds that make up the rich tapestry of American music history. With their lyrics they set themselves apart from the norm, taking the simple stories of everyday people and telling them through the lens of dreams and what it means to be a human. The root of the band's sound is in the use of three-part harmony to impart a sense of importance and depth to their lyrics that brings the listener into their songs.

The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

On Golden Pond
Redhouse
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

On-site parking is available in the attached garage on Clinton Street.

Recent Acquisitions in Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

AKIN: Keren Shavit & Eva Marie Rødbro?
Urban Video Project

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

Screening begins at dusk.

The title of the exhibition points to parallels in Rødbro's and Shavit's artistic process. Both artists have work that involves them integrating into and establishing relationships within the family structures and tightly knit subcultures that they document. The title also points to the ways that both artists make the process of watching uncomfortable for the audience in ways that lead us to reflect on our own beliefs and assumptions. In the triangle of artist-subject-audience, Rødbro and Shavit don't give us signposts telling us how to respond to the images they create or where they stand as the documentarians. The artists work with vulnerable subjects: a young child trying to make sense of the adult complexities of their family life and their struggling single parent a rabbit being roughly handled at a show and the older "gentleman" who clearly takes his hobby as a rabbit fancier very seriously.

The presence of the artist behind the camera — and sometimes in front of it — adds another layer of uncertainty for us as audience members. We are led to wonder why they are there and how they gained such intimate access, questions which point to the complex relationships at the heart of all documentary. While the images are uncomfortable to watch, the artists do not give us direction on how to judge the characters or whether we should be judging them at all. The fact that much of the imagery is beautiful and compelling makes our position even more conflicted, because we do not want to simply look away. In our ambivalent position, questions of belonging and identification get messy. During a cultural moment in which the politics of looking are more fraught than ever, we are left to wonder, who do we connect with? Who is our "kin"?

A Few Good Men
Central New York Playhouse
Dustin Czarny, director

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

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

On Golden Pond
Redhouse
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

On-site parking is available in the attached garage on Clinton Street.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.
