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.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

"What If...?" Film Series: Owned: A Tale of Two Americas
Gifford Foundation

Price: Free
Henninger High School
600 Robinson St., Syracuse

How many of us know the dark backstory behind the creation of suburbia? This visually rich, energetic film untangles the complex history of homeownership in America. Revealing the roots of its racist underpinnings and the systematic unequal division of opportunity between whites and blacks in the U.S. housing economy, the film demonstrates how racial inequality was institutionalized in the postwar U.S. housing market, with effects that continue to reverberate today.

Also screened will be the short film, "Redlining in Syracuse."

A moderated discussion will follow.

Presented in partnership with Legal Services of Central New York, CNY Fair Housing, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Onondaga County Bar Association, the New York Civil Liberties Union and the WHJ Minority Bar Association of Central New York.

Strolling Down Salina Street: 1940-1980
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

So many Central New Yorkers have fond memories of coming to Syracuse and taking in the shops, the sights, and the sounds of Salina Street, the heart of Downtown. 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
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

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.

From the Vault: Dumbo First Took Flight in Syracuse
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

Juan Cruz: A Retrospective
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In the 1980s, Juan Cruz began investigating his past as a method to understand where the tribal and the modern world collide. Born in Puerto Rico, Cruz briefly attended the Art Students League in 1975 and in 1995 he graduated from Syracuse University's School of Visual and Performing Arts. This career-spanning exhibition focuses on Cruz's work as a painter, sculptor, muralist, and community activist.

Time Returns: A Continuous Now
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019. In our current moment of peaked social activism and political engagement, the exhibition suggests new connections among seemingly disparate topics such as the horrors of war, the impact of the Anthropocene, shifting identities, and the necessity of intimacy. "Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Socially Gifted: 75 Years of Gifts from the Social Art Club
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting. The Club has an extensive history of supporting the Everson, including financial support for the acquisition of some of the Museum's most iconic pieces, such as Adrian Saxe's Untitled vessel from 1980, which graces the cover of the Museum's American Ceramics catalog. Over the past decade, the Social Art Club's gifts have strengthened the Everson's connections to Central New York through donations of work by indigenous and regional artists.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

From the Vault: Dumbo First Took Flight in Syracuse
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019.

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

All the world's a stage, but some stages are worth more than others. Welcome to the historic White Tulip, the seediest theater in London, yet a place everyone seems to want. Tonight, a tycoon temptress and her tawdry toady take on a territorial thespian and his trollop of a treasurer in a tussle for title of this theatrical tenement. What valuable secrets lie behind the scenes, and how far will someone go to unearth them? Let the buyer beware: At this showplace greed steals every scene and dying on stage could be more than a figure of speech.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

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

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

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.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Culture Capture: Terminal Addition
Urban Video Project

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

Light Work's Urban Video Project presents "Culture Capture: Terminal Addition" by the New Red Order (NRO). NRO core contributors Adam Khalil (Ojibway), Zack Khalil (Ojibway), and Jackson Polys (Tlingit) use video and performance to collectively challenge European settler and colonialist tendencies — such as "playing Indian" — with what they call "sites of savage pronouncement," the purpose of which is to shift potential obstructions to Indigenous growth and agency.

Created for UVP and shot in and around Syracuse, "Terminal Addition" uses local archives, collections, and locations, including the Columbus Monument in downtown Syracuse and the Saltine Warrior on the Syracuse University campus.

The exhibition will be on view on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019. In our current moment of peaked social activism and political engagement, the exhibition suggests new connections among seemingly disparate topics such as the horrors of war, the impact of the Anthropocene, shifting identities, and the necessity of intimacy. "Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Finding Neverland
Famous Artists Broadway Series

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

The winner of Broadway.com's Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash "captures the kid-at-heart," says TIME Magazine. Vogue cheers, "It's a must-see you'll remember for years to come!"

Directed by visionary Tony-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award winning film, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.
