Dreams Deferred
Syracuse University Art Museum

Syracuse University Art Museum, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

50th Anniversary: Selections from Light Work Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Remarkable in its breadth and depth, Light Work's 50th Anniversary exhibition is a thoughtful composition of photographic works that have come into Light Work's permanent collection over the past 50 years through the generosity of former artist-in-residence participants, Grant Awardees, and individual donations. The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography. The semi-centennial presents a unique opportunity to share the legacy of support the organization has extended to emerging and under-represented artists working in photography and digital image-making. Highlights in the show include early works from acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, and more.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Pick & Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art — but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you Pick & Mix, a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

Preview: Tender Rain (World Premiere)
Syracuse Stage
Rodney Hudson, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"Rain is like sorrow. It exposes our roots." In this elegiac drama, playwright Kyle Bass introduces Milton Millard, a white banker who lives in a small Southern city with Dolores, his wife whom he can hardly see anymore and who endures alone the memory of loss and unrelenting trepidation. Childless, they are a late-middle-aged couple lost in a fog of what cannot be undone. Is there a way forward for either of them? Can Milton seek aid from Ruthie Mimms, an older Black woman who has profoundly and irrevocably influenced his life? The momentary escape Milton finds in the arms of a younger woman will not spare him the reckoning he must face. Set in the 1950s, Tender Rain explores how pain, violence, and suffering rooted in an oppressive society leach insidiously into domestic lives and intimate relationships. A journey through a richly layered emotional landscape from the author of Possessing Harriet and salt/city/blues.

Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical
Syracuse University Drama Department
Rebecca Aparicio, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Who says sadness isn't fun? Certainly not award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl. In her absurd, sensual, and heartfelt play Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical, Ruhl endows melancholy with aphrodisiac power in the person of Tilly, a bank teller whose lingering sadness attracts everyone around her. So acute is the attraction that when Tilly suddenly finds happiness, she throws the others into despair. One even transforms into an almond. Yes, the nut. It will be up to Tilly to restore her. With characteristic whimsy and nuanced seriousness, Ruhl considers the many different ways to find joy and how sadness is a necessary component of happiness. Cue cello.

Music by Todd Almond, music directed by Brian Cimmet.

Syracuse University Art Museum, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography.

Pick & Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art — but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you Pick & Mix, a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Opening: Tender Rain (World Premiere)
Syracuse Stage
Rodney Hudson, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"Rain is like sorrow. It exposes our roots." In this elegiac drama, playwright Kyle Bass introduces Milton Millard, a white banker who lives in a small Southern city with Dolores, his wife whom he can hardly see anymore and who endures alone the memory of loss and unrelenting trepidation. Childless, they are a late-middle-aged couple lost in a fog of what cannot be undone. Is there a way forward for either of them? Can Milton seek aid from Ruthie Mimms, an older Black woman who has profoundly and irrevocably influenced his life? The momentary escape Milton finds in the arms of a younger woman will not spare him the reckoning he must face. Set in the 1950s, Tender Rain explores how pain, violence, and suffering rooted in an oppressive society leach insidiously into domestic lives and intimate relationships. A journey through a richly layered emotional landscape from the author of Possessing Harriet and salt/city/blues.

Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical
Syracuse University Drama Department
Rebecca Aparicio, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Who says sadness isn't fun? Certainly not award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl. In her absurd, sensual, and heartfelt play Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical, Ruhl endows melancholy with aphrodisiac power in the person of Tilly, a bank teller whose lingering sadness attracts everyone around her. So acute is the attraction that when Tilly suddenly finds happiness, she throws the others into despair. One even transforms into an almond. Yes, the nut. It will be up to Tilly to restore her. With characteristic whimsy and nuanced seriousness, Ruhl considers the many different ways to find joy and how sadness is a necessary component of happiness. Cue cello.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

CNY Artist Initiative: Ryan Patrick Krueger: Documents from the Closet
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

As the United States fell under the shadow of the Cold War in the early 1950s, politicians like Senator Joseph McCarthy accused untold thousands of people of being communists, but also cast a wider net for "subversives" that included people who did not conform to conventional gender norms. The resulting demonization of LGBTQ+ communities has come to be known as the lavender scare. Over the past decade, conceptual artist Ryan Patrick Krueger has rifled through countless archives, yearbooks, and eBay listings to uncover photographs of men interacting with each other with affection, tenderness, and camaraderie. The assembled images reveal a variety of coded behaviors that bypass the public gaze but speak volumes to queer individuals.

"Documents from the Closet" is Krueger's most ambitious assemblage of images to date. Found photographs are juxtaposed with a variety of ephemera drawn from queer newspapers and magazines. These images, created for specifically queer spaces, acknowledge coded behaviors through camp, satire, or by dispensing with them entirely. Krueger painstakingly arranges and rearranges this printed matter to evoke the march of history through semiotics and visual cues like fashion choices, graphic design, and material culture. From the lavender scare to the AIDS crisis and beyond, Documents from the Closet reminds viewers that despite increased visibility and rights for LGBTQ+ individuals, many of these coded behaviors still exist as coping mechanisms for society that still silences and punishes nonconformity.

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

Described by the legendary American virtuoso, André Watts as a musician of "exuberant spontaneity, deep conviction, and serious compositional understanding," Dan indulges in a rich career performing solo, chamber music, art song, and operatic repertoire. As a pianist, educator, and researcher, he embodies the motto written on his favorite T-shirt, "88 keys, 10 fingers — no problem."

He has been heard internationally through BBC, WQXR, CBC, KHPR, and major streaming media platforms, and has performed at music festivals across the US, including Brevard Music Center, Chautauqua Music Festival, Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival, Castleman Quartet Program, and Taconic Music's Summer Festival.

Appreciated among his colleagues as a human archive of pianistic knowledge and culture, he is a frequent resource for technical solutions, programming, historical recordings, and obscure scores. "Dr. Dan" (as students affectionately call him) has coached students and taught keyboard literature at Syracuse University and has been a faculty artist at the Perlman Music Program, ArtsAhimsa, and Notes By The Bay Music Festival.

"Rain is like sorrow. It exposes our roots." In this elegiac drama, playwright Kyle Bass introduces Milton Millard, a white banker who lives in a small Southern city with Dolores, his wife whom he can hardly see anymore and who endures alone the memory of loss and unrelenting trepidation. Childless, they are a late-middle-aged couple lost in a fog of what cannot be undone. Is there a way forward for either of them? Can Milton seek aid from Ruthie Mimms, an older Black woman who has profoundly and irrevocably influenced his life? The momentary escape Milton finds in the arms of a younger woman will not spare him the reckoning he must face. Set in the 1950s, Tender Rain explores how pain, violence, and suffering rooted in an oppressive society leach insidiously into domestic lives and intimate relationships. A journey through a richly layered emotional landscape from the author of Possessing Harriet and salt/city/blues.

Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

When the now-adult children arrive looking for answers, she can tell them nothing about where she's been or what she has done. She doesn't even know who they are. For those adult children, wounds that have never healed are reopened. A tabloid TV show is sending cameras to capture the reunion.

Tender Rain (World Premiere)
Syracuse Stage
Rodney Hudson, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"Rain is like sorrow. It exposes our roots." In this elegiac drama, playwright Kyle Bass introduces Milton Millard, a white banker who lives in a small Southern city with Dolores, his wife whom he can hardly see anymore and who endures alone the memory of loss and unrelenting trepidation. Childless, they are a late-middle-aged couple lost in a fog of what cannot be undone. Is there a way forward for either of them? Can Milton seek aid from Ruthie Mimms, an older Black woman who has profoundly and irrevocably influenced his life? The momentary escape Milton finds in the arms of a younger woman will not spare him the reckoning he must face. Set in the 1950s, Tender Rain explores how pain, violence, and suffering rooted in an oppressive society leach insidiously into domestic lives and intimate relationships. A journey through a richly layered emotional landscape from the author of Possessing Harriet and salt/city/blues.

Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical
Syracuse University Drama Department
Rebecca Aparicio, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Who says sadness isn't fun? Certainly not award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl. In her absurd, sensual, and heartfelt play Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical, Ruhl endows melancholy with aphrodisiac power in the person of Tilly, a bank teller whose lingering sadness attracts everyone around her. So acute is the attraction that when Tilly suddenly finds happiness, she throws the others into despair. One even transforms into an almond. Yes, the nut. It will be up to Tilly to restore her. With characteristic whimsy and nuanced seriousness, Ruhl considers the many different ways to find joy and how sadness is a necessary component of happiness. Cue cello.

Music by Todd Almond, music directed by Brian Cimmet.
