Uncommon Views: Photography by Jack Kurz
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

We Remember Them: The Legacy of Pan Am Flight 103
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21, 1988 claimed the lives of 270 individuals from 21 nations. Among those lost were 35 students returning home from a semester abroad through Syracuse University. This exhibition of materials donated to the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster by the victims' families, friends, advocates, and affected communities commemorates the 30th anniversary of the tragedy through an exploration of the ways in which the lives of the victims have been remembered. Whether through scholarship, public advocacy, art, or physical memorials, we ensure their lives and the lessons learned from their deaths are not forgotten.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery

Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada, for almost 20 years. The work focuses on the matriarch Lena Nottaway and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with Skä•noñh – Great Law of Peace Center. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Privilege, prejudice, and yes, a border dispute all get an equitable skewering in this punchy and playful show. The road to recovering our shared sense of decency might just begin with laughter.

Uncommon Views: Photography by Jack Kurz
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Native Gardens

Melissa Crespo, director

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

Enjoy a light-hearted look at what ails us in this witty and spot-on new comedy. Take a semi-retired Washington bureaucrat and his defense contractor wife, a young Chilean lawyer and his doctoral student wife, set them cheek by jowl in a border dispute over a couple of feet of property in a Georgetown backyard, and let the laughter begin. Privilege, prejudice, and yes, a border dispute all get an equitable skewering in this punchy and playful show. The road to recovering our shared sense of decency might just begin with laughter. A winner of the National Latino Playwriting Award, Karen Zacarías is among the most produced playwrights in the nation. This satirical gem shows us why.

Preview: We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia ...
Syracuse University Drama Department
Gilbert McCauley, director

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

Ever wonder what it would be like to be in the rehearsal room when actors are digging ferociously into their psyches to discover a moment of revelation or arguing heatedly over a character's motivation? In We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915, by Jackie Sibblies Drury, a company of six actors gathers in a rehearsal room to tell the little-known story of the first genocide of the 20th century: the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Along the way, they test the limits of empathy as their own stories, subjectivities, assumptions, and prejudices catalyze their theatrical process. Eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, and what seemed a faraway place and time comes all too close to home in this exceptional play about the sensitivities and difficulties inherent in the act of storytelling itself.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Native Gardens
Syracuse Stage
Melissa Crespo, director

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

Enjoy a light-hearted look at what ails us in this witty and spot-on new comedy. Take a semi-retired Washington bureaucrat and his defense contractor wife, a young Chilean lawyer and his doctoral student wife, set them cheek by jowl in a border dispute over a couple of feet of property in a Georgetown backyard, and let the laughter begin. Privilege, prejudice, and yes, a border dispute all get an equitable skewering in this punchy and playful show. The road to recovering our shared sense of decency might just begin with laughter. A winner of the National Latino Playwriting Award, Karen Zacarías is among the most produced playwrights in the nation. This satirical gem shows us why.

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia ...
Syracuse University Drama Department
Gilbert McCauley, director

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

Ever wonder what it would be like to be in the rehearsal room when actors are digging ferociously into their psyches to discover a moment of revelation or arguing heatedly over a character's motivation? In We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915, by Jackie Sibblies Drury, a company of six actors gathers in a rehearsal room to tell the little-known story of the first genocide of the 20th century: the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Along the way, they test the limits of empathy as their own stories, subjectivities, assumptions, and prejudices catalyze their theatrical process. Eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, and what seemed a faraway place and time comes all too close to home in this exceptional play about the sensitivities and difficulties inherent in the act of storytelling itself.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Native Gardens

Melissa Crespo, director

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

Enjoy a light-hearted look at what ails us in this witty and spot-on new comedy. Take a semi-retired Washington bureaucrat and his defense contractor wife, a young Chilean lawyer and his doctoral student wife, set them cheek by jowl in a border dispute over a couple of feet of property in a Georgetown backyard, and let the laughter begin. Privilege, prejudice, and yes, a border dispute all get an equitable skewering in this punchy and playful show. The road to recovering our shared sense of decency might just begin with laughter. A winner of the National Latino Playwriting Award, Karen Zacarías is among the most produced playwrights in the nation. This satirical gem shows us why.

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia ...
Syracuse University Drama Department
Gilbert McCauley, director

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

Ever wonder what it would be like to be in the rehearsal room when actors are digging ferociously into their psyches to discover a moment of revelation or arguing heatedly over a character's motivation? In We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915, by Jackie Sibblies Drury, a company of six actors gathers in a rehearsal room to tell the little-known story of the first genocide of the 20th century: the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Along the way, they test the limits of empathy as their own stories, subjectivities, assumptions, and prejudices catalyze their theatrical process. Eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, and what seemed a faraway place and time comes all too close to home in this exceptional play about the sensitivities and difficulties inherent in the act of storytelling itself.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Oren Lyons: Disappearing Cultures
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse


Indigenous cultures are under constant siege. It's happening in Brazil, Canada, the U.S. – a long history of annihilation anywhere you find people living off the land. It's happening where a favored theory by those seeking power is summarized in European settlers reasoning; "Kill the Indian and save the man." "Killing the Indian" can take many forms. Indigenous languages are the most varied in the world. When you lose the language, you erase the culture. The Canadian and U.S. practice of removing Native children from their homes and outlawing Native languages has taken a huge toll. Why is there such an attack on Indigenous cultures? Because such cultures relate to the land and resources. What is called "Progress" has another name – genocide.

Join us as we welcome Oren R. Lyons Jr., a Native American Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Seneca Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, Onondaga Council of Chiefs, to ArtRage to speak on this important issue.
