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.

Susan Stainman: Dream Bird, Hatching the Egg
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

"Dream Bird, Hatching the Egg" includes works that explore the interconnection between Buddhist philosophy, meditation, and the creative process. Stainman's work creates a visual metaphor of her personal experience with sensuality and color. The tactility of her work draws the viewer in through the body as a means of manipulation, lulling them into mental relaxation and an experience of natural mind.

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.

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.

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.

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
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

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.

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.

Note: An overflow crowd is expected — early arrival is recommended to assure a seat.

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.

Laura Love

Price: $18 regular, $15 members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

After taking nearly a decade off the festival/touring circuit, Laura Love is again returning to the stage to continue where she left off. She felt "compelled to get back on the road, reach out to other human beings, spread kindness and try to heal", from what she has described as a "savage couple of years." To that end, she exploded back onto the festival scene in 2017, taking the Kate Wolf, Strawberry, Valhalla and Philadelphia Folk Music Festivals by storm.

With these powerful performances, she and her stellar guitarist, Terry Hunt, showcased a whole new batch of songs that left audiences leaping to their feet, mid-set and some concert-goers telling her "she was even better than she'd been years ago." She has expanded her story-rich, socially conscious repertoire to include Field Hollers, Civil Rights era songs, and Gospel music into her deep catalog of original songs.

Media, fans and record labels have struggled to define this inimitable musician's colorful style, which embraces bits of the blues, bluegrass, jazz, folk, gospel, reggae, and country. However, Laura Love has sometimes called her music "FolkFunk," "Afro-Celtic," or "Hip-Alachian."

Regardless of how she is described, Laura has an indisputable and uncanny knack for enthralling audiences from all walks of life, from octogenarians who line up to hear straight-ahead bluegrass to the pierced-and-tattooed set to their middle-aged parents.

A rare recording artist who is authentic and deeply rooted, Love exhibits timeless and diverse appeal. Droves of fans throughout North America, Australia, and Europe apparently agree. Her CDs have repeatedly made Billboard's annual Top 10 lists.

The childlike and uncontrollable Buddy has a sweet spirit but is terrified of water, though ironically he has developed an uncanny ability to find water for his drought-besieged farm community. When a disillusioned preacher, C.C. Showers, who left his practice, comes to the farm seeking employment and food, a unique bond develops between the troubled but gifted Buddy and a man who represents salvation to the beleaguered townspeople. C.C. devotes himself to helping Buddy, and his efforts precipitate a startling chain of events.

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.

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.

Steve Martin and Martin Short: Now You See Them, Soon You Won't
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Steve Martin is one of the most well-known talents in entertainment. His work has earned him an Academy Award, five Grammy awards, an Emmy, the Mark Twain Award, and the Kennedy Center Honors. Martin began his career on "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" (1967-1969), for which he earned his first Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing Achievement in Comedy, Variety or Music in 1969. In the mid-1970s, Martin shone as a stand-up on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" and NBC's "Saturday Night Live." Martin's films are widely popular successes and are the kind of movies that are viewed again and again: The Jerk (1979), Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987), Roxanne (1987), Parenthood (1989), L.A. Story (1991), Father of the Bride (1991), and Bowfinger (1999).

Martin Short, a celebrated comedian and actor, has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on "Saturday Night Live" over 30 years ago. Short won his first Emmy in 1982 while working on Canada's SCTV Comedy Network, which brought him to the attention of the producers of "SNL." He became an "SNL" fan-favorite for his portrayal of characters such as Ed Grimley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and "legendary songwriter" Irving Cohen. His popularity and exposure on "SNL" led Short to cross over quickly into feature films. He made his debut in "Three Amigos" and followed with "Innerspace,""Three Fugitives,""Clifford,""Pure Luck" and "Tim Burton's Mars Attacks." One of Short's most memorable roles was in the remake of "Father of the Bride" as Franck the wedding planner, a role he reprised a few years later in "Father of the Bride Part II."Short lent his voice to the animated film "Madagascar 3" and Tim Burton's Oscar-nominated "Frankenweenie."

In the fictional town of Zion during the Great Depression, a widowed farmer is raising his son Buddy, whose brain was damaged at age 4 during a near drowning, in which his mother died trying to save him. The childlike and uncontrollable Buddy has a sweet spirit but is terrified of water, though ironically he has developed an uncanny ability to find water for his drought-besieged farm community. When a disillusioned preacher, C.C. Showers, who left his practice, comes to the farm seeking employment and food, a unique bond develops between the troubled but gifted Buddy and a man who represents salvation to the beleaguered townspeople. C.C. devotes himself to helping Buddy, and his efforts precipitate a startling chain of events.

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.

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.

Leading Men Don't Dance: The Legend Continues
Salt City Center for the Performing Arts

Price: $20 (advance reservations recommended)
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

Salt City Center for the Performing Arts announces the return of it's smash hit Leading Men Don't Dance, the hilarious revue that celebrates and exposes the talents and egos of typical Broadway leading men, their narcissism, hubris, and need for attention. The show reunites stellar original cast members Bob Brown, Frank Fiumano, Gary Troy, and John Smitherman, and like the proverbial cherry-on-top, adds Richard Koons, a veteran of later installments. Dubbed Syracuse's Rat Pack, the evening promises hijinks, storytelling, and outstanding vocal arrangements from these multi-decade veterans of both local, national and international touring productions.

Tickets are available at www.cnyjazz.org.

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.
