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.

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.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games

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

"Lord of the Dance" premiered in London two decades ago, and in 2014 Michael Flatley transformed the show making it even more thrilling than the original. "Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games" with music composed by Gerard Fahy premiered at the iconic London Palladium in September 2014 to mark the milestone 20th anniversary since Michael Flatley became an international sensation.

The show continues to thrill audiences around the globe with its intoxicating mix of dance and music that fuses the traditional with the contemporary in a classic tale that showcases the exceptional talent of the cast. The show features cutting edge technology including a giant Radiant flat screen that spans the width of the stage, special effects lighting, dancing robots and world champion acrobats.

"The Lord of the Dance" story emerges from the dreams of the Little Spirit. It is a classic tale of good versus evil. In her dream the Lord of the Dance represents all things good in the world but he must fight against evil in the form of The Dark Lord and his army of Dark Disciples. Morrighan the Seductress comes between The Lord and his true love Saoirse, while Erin the Goddess puts into song the words that the dances convey. Will the Lord of the Dance and his chieftains defeat the Dark Lord and his men? Will the Spirit's Dream become a nightmare from which she cannot wake?

Let the dance embrace you and take you on a journey filled with energy and passion.

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.

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.

"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.

Distant Shores
(2016, 3 minutes)
A sunny afternoon on a tour boat in Chicago is haunted by the specter of other voyages.

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.

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.

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

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., 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.
