An Evening with Chevy Chase
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Light up your holidays with Chevy Chase live on stage plus an audience Q & A following a 30th anniversary screening of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!

A limited number of VIP tickets that include a post show photo with Chevy and the best seats in the house are available.

An original member of NBC's Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase was the trailblazer who turned SNL success into Hollywood mega-stardom. The movies Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, Fletch, and Three Amigos all contributed to making Chevy Chase a world-wide household name. Christmas with the Griswolds has never been more beloved. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation was ranked #2 on Esquire's list of "The 40 Best Christmas Movies" of all time. Fans can expect the unexpected as Chevy Chase shares a no-holds barred trip down memory lane in this exclusive evening with a comedy legend.

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.

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.

From Gilded to Gustav: The Victorian and Arts & Crafts Era in Onondaga County

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

In many respects, the Arts and Crafts movement was a rebuke of the ornate styling, designs, and increasing mechanization of production in the Victorian period. The displays will allow for museum patrons to see these contrasting styles up close.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

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.

Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Late Night Space Force" features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon's presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince
Breadcrumbs Productions

Wunderbar
201 S. West St., Syracuse

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.

Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world. As a touring piece, our site-adaptive show transforms from venue to venue, and gives each audience the chance to experience not only the story, but the venue, in unique and unexpected ways.

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince is an immersive theatre production. This means you are fully immersed in the world of the story. For this production, you will be moving throughout the venue largely using the stairs when needed. There is an elevator for those who require it. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes.

This production is family friendly and is appropriate for many ages. All children should be accompanied by an adult. We emphasize, however, that the content is not aimed at children and at times could be considered frightening by young viewers.

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.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

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.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

George Bailey spends his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls, as we see in flashback.

His guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, literally, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would have turned out if he had never been born. George meant so much to so many people; should he really throw it all away?

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince
Breadcrumbs Productions

Wunderbar
201 S. West St., Syracuse

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.

Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world. As a touring piece, our site-adaptive show transforms from venue to venue, and gives each audience the chance to experience not only the story, but the venue, in unique and unexpected ways.

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince is an immersive theatre production. This means you are fully immersed in the world of the story. For this production, you will be moving throughout the venue largely using the stairs when needed. There is an elevator for those who require it. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes.

This production is family friendly and is appropriate for many ages. All children should be accompanied by an adult. We emphasize, however, that the content is not aimed at children and at times could be considered frightening by young viewers.

401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Late Night Space Force" features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon's presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

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.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

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.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince
Breadcrumbs Productions

Wunderbar
201 S. West St., Syracuse

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.

Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world. As a touring piece, our site-adaptive show transforms from venue to venue, and gives each audience the chance to experience not only the story, but the venue, in unique and unexpected ways.

Marie & The Nutcracker Prince is an immersive theatre production. This means you are fully immersed in the world of the story. For this production, you will be moving throughout the venue largely using the stairs when needed. There is an elevator for those who require it. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes.

This production is family friendly and is appropriate for many ages. All children should be accompanied by an adult. We emphasize, however, that the content is not aimed at children and at times could be considered frightening by young viewers.
