Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

We Remember Them: The Legacy of Pan Am Flight 103

Bird Library, 6th Floor

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.

Keisha Scarville: Alma
Light Work Gallery

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

Keisha Scarville's primary theme is the relationship between transformation and the unknown. Grounded in photography, she works across media to explore place, absence, and subjectivity.

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

Visions of America
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

Point of Contact presents a selection of both contrasting and complimentary works by Marta Chilindron.

Chilindron's works range from the geometrically abstract to the organic and the environmental. While at first glance these aesthetic styles appear to be contradictory, this exhibition aims to highlight the common ground — the point of contact — where the works' shared formal elements emerge.

Robert Shetterly
University Lectures

Price: Free
Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

All of Shetterly's living portrait subjects have been invited to visit Syracuse University to see the display and enjoy a gallery reception and the accompanying Nov. 29 University Lectures event in which the artist will take part in an on-stage conversation with two of his subjects—Richard Bowen and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha. Bowen is a former vice president at Citigroup who blew the whistle on Citibank's subprime mortgage practices that helped lead to the country's 2008 financial crisis. Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician and public health advocate in Flint, Mich., sounded the alarm about the high presence of lead in the city's drinking water.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

Visions of America
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight, in n Act of God by David Javerbaum. After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (assisted by His devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation.

"Delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, as transcribed by the man we might call the Moses de nos jours, David Javerbaum, God is really killing it up there. How funny is the guy? He's Jon Stewart funny, plus Stephen Colbert funny. (Mr. Javerbaum has written for both.) ...Verily I could quote every other line from Mr. Javerbaum's annotation of the Scriptures and gather a chuckle, so deliriously funny is he as a sort of amateur theologian and stand-up comedy genius rolled into one." —The New York Times

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

Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship
University Lectures

Price: Free
Panasci Lounge, Schine Student Center
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Not only is noted painter Robert Shetterly coming to Syracuse University, he is bringing along the full collection of his masterwork portrait series "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship," which marks the first time ever all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location.

The portraits and accompanying narratives highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Combining art and other media, the series "offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth."

Among the historical and contemporary figures portrayed in the collection are Muhammad Ali, Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Majora Carter, Shirley Chisholm, Dwight Eisenhower, Langston Hughes, Van Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Ron Kovic, Oren Lyons '58, Arthur Miller, Ralph Nader, Paul Robeson, Edward Snowden, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Malcolm X.

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake's "Proverbs of Hell" and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began "Americans Who Tell the Truth" in the early 2000s. A book by the same name and featuring his first 50 portraits was published in 2008. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about "the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don't tell the truth, if the media don't report it, and if the people don't demand it."

Price: Free

Keisha Scarville's primary theme is the relationship between transformation and the unknown. Grounded in photography, she works across media to explore place, absence, and subjectivity.

After the death of her mother in 2015, Keisha Scarville deepened her use of photography as a way to explore how the loss of such an anchor point can affect one's identity and sense of both absence and self in the world. Scarville's exhibition presents a selection of photographs whose larger subject is transformation born of loss. In working with Alma's richly patterned clothing and possessions, Scarville states she looks for ways to visually conjure her mother's presence.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Everson building, "Visions of America" showcases the depth of the Everson's collection of American art. In 1911, the Everson (then known as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would collect only work made by American artists, a decision which led to the acquisition of many important works that are today beloved by Everson visitors. This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Art Within Art: The Everson at 50" commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei's landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei's radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never-before-seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson's collection, "Art Within Art" examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei's building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.
