You already know the plot of this Hitchcock classic: A magazine photographer (Stewart) breaks his leg and is confined to his apartment where he begins spying on his neighbors who live across the courtyard. The difference with our screening is that we're presenting the recent Technicolor restoration that renews the movie's visual brilliance (no more faded color!) and brings back the experience of seeing Rear Window when it was first released in theaters ...

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.

Off the Rack
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Off the Rack" is the happy by-product of a major renovation of the Everson's on-site art storage.

As hundreds of paintings and framed works are displaced from their racks while renovations take place, the public has an unprecedented opportunity to view objects that have been in deep storage for years, never-before-seen recent acquisitions, and some perennial favorites — all hung together salon-style in our exhibition galleries.

This smorgasbord of paintings and works on paper showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum's collections and provides a glimpse into the world of collections management and care.

Doug Muir: Coming Home
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For photographer Doug Muir (1940-2016), Syracuse was always home, even though he moved away in 1967.

Muir grew up on Syracuse's South Side where — as a 12-year-old — he embarked on a lifelong passion for capturing moments of daily life.

His early snapshots of places and people familiar to him evolved into sophisticated and compelling photographs that documented a changing America while speaking to a fundamental humanity shared by all. Spanning more than 30 years, "Doug Muir: Coming Home" surveys Muir's journey as a keen observer of humankind, from his beginnings in Central New York to his adopted home on the West Coast where he made his living as a steamfitter.

Although Muir photographed places all over the country throughout his lifetime, Syracuse remained his touchstone and he returned countless times to visit family and friends and reconnect with the source that gave his works such poignancy. "Doug Muir: Coming Home" marks a final return for the artist to his hometown, a place his heart never left.

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.

Preview: Clue
Syracuse Stage
Ben Hanna , director

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

Farce meets murder mystery in this hilarious theatrical adaptation of the famed board game and 1985 motion picture. In a remote mansion not far from Washington, DC, a mysterious and familiar cast of characters — Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet — gather for a dinner party and an evening of murder. Does the sudden demise of their host, Mr. Boddy, have any connection to the ongoing hearings conducted by Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee? It's all fun and games until someone gets clobbered by a candlestick in the library. After that, it's even more fun.

Original Music by Michael Holland.

Insiders say it was invented by lab assistant Nick Van Castle. Or was it really invented by has-been inventor Nathan Brandmark? Or was it stolen by Nathan who used it to go back in time and claim he invented it? Or the other way around? Whatever happened, one thing's for sure: the clock is ticking down on someone.

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.

Off the Rack
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Off the Rack" is the happy by-product of a major renovation of the Everson's on-site art storage.

As hundreds of paintings and framed works are displaced from their racks while renovations take place, the public has an unprecedented opportunity to view objects that have been in deep storage for years, never-before-seen recent acquisitions, and some perennial favorites — all hung together salon-style in our exhibition galleries.

This smorgasbord of paintings and works on paper showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum's collections and provides a glimpse into the world of collections management and care.

Doug Muir: Coming Home
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For photographer Doug Muir (1940-2016), Syracuse was always home, even though he moved away in 1967.

Muir grew up on Syracuse's South Side where — as a 12-year-old — he embarked on a lifelong passion for capturing moments of daily life.

His early snapshots of places and people familiar to him evolved into sophisticated and compelling photographs that documented a changing America while speaking to a fundamental humanity shared by all. Spanning more than 30 years, "Doug Muir: Coming Home" surveys Muir's journey as a keen observer of humankind, from his beginnings in Central New York to his adopted home on the West Coast where he made his living as a steamfitter.

Although Muir photographed places all over the country throughout his lifetime, Syracuse remained his touchstone and he returned countless times to visit family and friends and reconnect with the source that gave his works such poignancy. "Doug Muir: Coming Home" marks a final return for the artist to his hometown, a place his heart never left.

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.

Antonio, an antisemitic merchant, takes a loan from a Jewish moneylender, Shylock, to help his friend, Bassanio, court Portia, Renaissance lady of Venice. Antonio can't repay the loan, and without mercy, Shylock demands a pound of his flesh. The heiress Portia, now Bassanio's wife, dresses as a judge in an attempt to save Antonio's life. Will she succeed or will Antonio lose a pound of flesh?

SSITP is presenting Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice using an all-female identifying cast. This concept allows us to expand the issues of bias and prejudice suffered by the characters in the play to comment upon contemporary struggles with racism, profiling, and gender bias.

In a remote mansion not far from Washington, DC, a mysterious and familiar cast of characters — Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet — gather for a dinner party and an evening of murder. Does the sudden demise of their host, Mr. Boddy, have any connection to the ongoing hearings conducted by Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee? It's all fun and games until someone gets clobbered by a candlestick in the library. After that, it's even more fun.

Mark Hummel’s Blues Survivors with Anson Funderburgh
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Mark Hummel started playing harmonica in 1970 and is considered one of the premier blues harmonica players of his generation. Thanks to over 30 recordings since 1985, including the Grammy-nominated 2013 release Blind Pig recording Remembering Little Walter (part of the Blues Harmonica Blowout CD series). Mark Hummel's Blues Harmonica Blowout started in 1991 and has featured every major legend (Mayall, Musselwhite, Cotton, etc.) on blues harp as well as almost every player of note on the instrument – a who's who of players.

Hummel is a road warrior – a true Blues Survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound – a subtle combination of tone, phrasing, and attack combined with a strong sense of swing. Mark has been with Electro-Fi Records since 2000, releasing five CDs. Thanks to Mark's earlier albums, constant touring, and appearances at the major blues festivals, he's firmly established his solid reputation around the US and Europe.

Merchant of Venice
Syracuse Shakespeare-in-the-Park

Price: $30 premium, free regular (donations requested)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Antonio, an antisemitic merchant, takes a loan from a Jewish moneylender, Shylock, to help his friend, Bassanio, court Portia, Renaissance lady of Venice. Antonio can't repay the loan, and without mercy, Shylock demands a pound of his flesh. The heiress Portia, now Bassanio's wife, dresses as a judge in an attempt to save Antonio's life. Will she succeed or will Antonio lose a pound of flesh?

SSITP is presenting Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice using an all-female identifying cast. This concept allows us to expand the issues of bias and prejudice suffered by the characters in the play to comment upon contemporary struggles with racism, profiling, and gender bias.

Clue
Syracuse Stage
Ben Hanna , director

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

Farce meets murder mystery in this hilarious theatrical adaptation of the famed board game and 1985 motion picture. In a remote mansion not far from Washington, DC, a mysterious and familiar cast of characters — Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet — gather for a dinner party and an evening of murder. Does the sudden demise of their host, Mr. Boddy, have any connection to the ongoing hearings conducted by Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee? It's all fun and games until someone gets clobbered by a candlestick in the library. After that, it's even more fun.

Original Music by Michael Holland.

Arko Datto: Shunyo Raja (Kings of a Bereft Land)
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Arko Datto's epic three-part series chronicles the lives of those living in the world's largest delta, variously known as the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna Delta. Climate change has rapidly put this immense region and its inhabitants in danger. Even as the artist summarizes the complexity and scale of the challenges confronting both, he knows his time with this landscape is fleeting.

Castle on the Hudson (1940)
Syracuse Cinephile Society

Price: $4 non-members, $3.50 members
Spaghetti Warehouse
689 N. Clinton St., Syracuse

Cast: John Garfield, Ann Sheridan, Pat O'Brien, Burgess Meredith, Jerome Cowan, Guinn Williams, John Litel
Director: Anatole Litvak

One of Garfield's early starring films casts him in a familiar role (a tough hood who is arrested and has to deal with prison life) but also shows his powerful screen presence and exceptional talent as an actor. A strong supporting cast joins him in making this the kind of hard-hitting drama that Warner Brothers was famous for.

PLUS MGM's 1938 "Crime Does Not Pay" short Come Across.
