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.

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.

"Forbidden Fruit: Yasuo Kuniyoshi's America" explores the life and career of the noted 20th century Japanese American artist through the lens of Forbidden Fruit, 1950. This eerie and confounding late painting from Syracuse University's permanent collection ultimately reveals Kuniyoshi's tortured state of mind close to his untimely passing in 1953.

Paintings, drawings, and prints from lenders including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art, and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University develop an engrossing visual narrative explaining the life and work of this unique artist.

Bullets for Broadway
Theatre Du Jour
Derek Potocki, director

Price: $60 dinner theater
Barnes Hiscock Mansion
930 James St., Syracuse

A sort of sequel to The Altos, although no knowledge of the first play is required. Gangster Tony Alto and his wife Toffee are back, in a story that answers the question, what would happend if The Sopranos met The Producers. Toffee wants to be a Broadway star and Tony needs to "clean" some money. So he has hired two producers to mount a hit musical—"The Mafia Queen"—starring Toffee. The only catch—the show must be sold out opening night and get great reviews, no matter what it costs ... or else! Leave it to Baxter Mallystock and his playwright partner Eli Blain. You're invited to the party after opening night to revel as the reviews come in, along with the FBI and a few stray bullets. It's a brand new evening of mystery, comedy, music, and great food which just goes to prove that sometimes when people say they're going to make a hit, they mean it!

Cocktail hour 5:00 pm, dinner 6:00 pm, show 7:00 pm.

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.

Donald R. Waful: The Remarkable Life Story of a Local Syracusan
Onondaga Historical Association

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 (Selections from the Iris and B.

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.

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.

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.

Margaret Atwood
University Lectures

Price: Free
Hendricks Chapel
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Canadian author Margaret Atwood is the definition of a literary titan, with more than 40 novels, non-fiction works, short story collections, children's books, books of poetry and one graphic novel to her credit over her more than 50-year career. Her work has been published in more than 40 languages.

Arguably her most famous book, The Handmaid's Tale was transformed into a critically acclaimed television series on Hulu. The first season won eight Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series. The recently completed second season has earned 20 Emmy nominations.

Along with the deep dystopian novel, television is treating new generations to other of Atwood's notable works. An adaption of her murder mystery Alias Grace is now streaming on Netflix. Her children's book Wandering Wenda and Widow Wallop's Wunderground Washery was produced as an animated children's series. MGM is producing a series from her novel The Heart Goes Last. And Paramount is adapting the three books in her MaddAddam series, Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, MaddAddam, into a television series.

In 2016, Atwood entered the world of graphic novels with Angel Catbird, the story of a young genetic engineer who accidentally mutates into a cat-owl hybrid, which debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times Bestseller List. She has since written volumes two and three.

Her list of honors exceeds 125 recognitions, starting in the early 1960s and including the Man Booker Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the Harvard Arts Medal, the Raymond Chandler Award, the Carl Sandburg Literary Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She has received 26 honorary degrees.

Atwood is a founding trustee of the Griffin Poetry Prize and a founder of the Writers' Trust of Canada, a nonprofit literary organization that seeks to encourage Canada's writing community.

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.

"Rodin: The Human Experience (Selections from the Iris and B.

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.

Price: Free

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.

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.

ArtRage Gallery

Price: $5 suggested donation
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

From the pen of famed novelist Daphne duMaurier, this "frightening and consistently inventive horror story" (Chicago Reader) takes us on an unpredictable journey to the darker side of the human psyche. The story spins around London married couple John and Laura Baxter who are grieving over the loss of their young daughter. John accepts an assignment to oversee the restoration of an ancient church in Venice, and the couple hope moving to sunny Italy will do them good. Yet at every turn reminders of death surface as the city grapples with a series of unexplained murders. Enter a psychic, blind and elderly, who claims she can see the dead girl. Laura believes her. John is skeptical. All too soon, warnings from the beyond appear. Directed by Nicolas Roeg. Starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.

At once a paranormal thriller and cinematic tour de force, Don't Look Now has been hailed "One of the ten best British horror films ever made," in separate polls by the British Film Institute and Time Out.

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.

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.
