Syracuse University Art Museum

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

Artist and art historian Josh T Franco stages a highly personal intervention in the Museum's permanent collection galleries by developing the exhibition checklist and staging performances to activate the space. He takes on the fundamental method of compare and contrast, as championed by the 19th-century Swiss art historian Heinrich Wölfflin, in order to consider his place within the discipline. In doing so, he invites museum visitors, especially Syracuse University students, to consider their relationships to their fields of study.

Mondrian: Art, Design, Fashion
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
The Warehouse Genet Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Discover the remarkable influence of Piet Mondrian's art on fashion and design. This exhibition, curated by Professor Jeffrey Mayer and featuring the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection, addresses the effect that Piet Mondrian's utopian neoplastic art has had on design and fashion in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Mondrian (1872-1944) was a visionary Dutch painter known for pioneering the De Stijl movement. His iconic grid-based compositions using only straight lines, primary colors plus black, white and grey, transformed the art world. His work embodies simplicity, harmony, and a universal language of abstraction.

The exhibition features not only fashion from the 1980s and 1990s but is also filled with additional "design" objects that have been influenced by Mondrian's work, including dinnerware from Kate Spade; toys from Mattel, LOL and Thomas the Train; sneakers by Nike; and packaging from the beauty brand L'Oreal's Studio Line.

Gardner's eclectic art subjects include houses, animals, farms, trains, a barn raising, transportation, and Onondaga Native Americans.

OHA's collection of Gardner artwork numbers almost 25 paintings, many surrounded by his homemade gray frames. Fred Gardner's distinct art style is sure to fascinate visitors young and old.

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.

A Pocketful of Progress: A Retrospective Look at the Machines Found in our Smartphones
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Even in his wildest dreams, Alexander Graham Bell could never have imagined that almost 150 years later, people all over the world would be carrying his invention in their pockets. Yet, today, our smartphones are so much more than telephones. In fact, most people rarely even make "old-fashioned" phone calls, eschewing them altogether to text or Facetime.

Smartphones have changed our society and culture in so many ways that it's hard to imagine a world without them. However, that world existed not so long ago. Today, our smartphone is our office computer, our home entertainment system, our camera, our bank, our map, our library, and much more. It is astonishing to contemplate, but this pocket-sized computer has, in the span of 15 years, become an indispensable part of the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

"A Pocketful of Progress" seeks to demonstrate the evolution of technology with an exhibition of a wide range of machines from the last 150 years, many of which were built right here in Syracuse, that have been necessary to complete the myriad tasks now done on our smartphones. The impressive array of machines in this exhibit offer a stark juxtaposition to the incredible technological tool you carry every day in your purse or in your pocket. We hope you enjoy the exhibition, housed, coincidentally, in a building built by the Bell Telephone Company. Just imagine what Mr. Bell would think!

He takes on the fundamental method of compare and contrast, as championed by the 19th-century Swiss art historian Heinrich Wölfflin, in order to consider his place within the discipline.

"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.

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.

Mondrian: Art, Design, Fashion
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
The Warehouse Genet Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Discover the remarkable influence of Piet Mondrian's art on fashion and design. This exhibition, curated by Professor Jeffrey Mayer and featuring the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection, addresses the effect that Piet Mondrian's utopian neoplastic art has had on design and fashion in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Mondrian (1872-1944) was a visionary Dutch painter known for pioneering the De Stijl movement. His iconic grid-based compositions using only straight lines, primary colors plus black, white and grey, transformed the art world. His work embodies simplicity, harmony, and a universal language of abstraction.

The exhibition features not only fashion from the 1980s and 1990s but is also filled with additional "design" objects that have been influenced by Mondrian's work, including dinnerware from Kate Spade; toys from Mattel, LOL and Thomas the Train; sneakers by Nike; and packaging from the beauty brand L'Oreal's Studio Line.

A Pocketful of Progress: A Retrospective Look at the Machines Found in our Smartphones
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Even in his wildest dreams, Alexander Graham Bell could never have imagined that almost 150 years later, people all over the world would be carrying his invention in their pockets. Yet, today, our smartphones are so much more than telephones. In fact, most people rarely even make "old-fashioned" phone calls, eschewing them altogether to text or Facetime.

Smartphones have changed our society and culture in so many ways that it's hard to imagine a world without them. However, that world existed not so long ago. Today, our smartphone is our office computer, our home entertainment system, our camera, our bank, our map, our library, and much more. It is astonishing to contemplate, but this pocket-sized computer has, in the span of 15 years, become an indispensable part of the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

"A Pocketful of Progress" seeks to demonstrate the evolution of technology with an exhibition of a wide range of machines from the last 150 years, many of which were built right here in Syracuse, that have been necessary to complete the myriad tasks now done on our smartphones. The impressive array of machines in this exhibit offer a stark juxtaposition to the incredible technological tool you carry every day in your purse or in your pocket. We hope you enjoy the exhibition, housed, coincidentally, in a building built by the Bell Telephone Company. Just imagine what Mr. Bell would think!

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.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Painter Frank Buffalo Hyde grew up in the Onondaga Nation, where he absorbed much of the pop culture that is still central to his worldview. Throughout his career, Buffalo Hyde has presented "pop" iconography like UFOs, hamburgers, and corporate logos in parallel with Native symbology like the bison on the Onondaga reservation and Indigenous leaders and dancers.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

A Pocketful of Progress: A Retrospective Look at the Machines Found in our Smartphones
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Even in his wildest dreams, Alexander Graham Bell could never have imagined that almost 150 years later, people all over the world would be carrying his invention in their pockets. Yet, today, our smartphones are so much more than telephones. In fact, most people rarely even make "old-fashioned" phone calls, eschewing them altogether to text or Facetime.

Smartphones have changed our society and culture in so many ways that it's hard to imagine a world without them. However, that world existed not so long ago. Today, our smartphone is our office computer, our home entertainment system, our camera, our bank, our map, our library, and much more. It is astonishing to contemplate, but this pocket-sized computer has, in the span of 15 years, become an indispensable part of the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

"A Pocketful of Progress" seeks to demonstrate the evolution of technology with an exhibition of a wide range of machines from the last 150 years, many of which were built right here in Syracuse, that have been necessary to complete the myriad tasks now done on our smartphones. The impressive array of machines in this exhibit offer a stark juxtaposition to the incredible technological tool you carry every day in your purse or in your pocket. We hope you enjoy the exhibition, housed, coincidentally, in a building built by the Bell Telephone Company. Just imagine what Mr. Bell would think!

He takes on the fundamental method of compare and contrast, as championed by the 19th-century Swiss art historian Heinrich Wölfflin, in order to consider his place within the discipline. In doing so, he invites museum visitors, especially Syracuse University students, to consider their relationships to their fields of study.

Nona Faustine, My Country
Syracuse University Art Museum

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

The Art Wall Project at the Syracuse University Art Museum continues for its third presentation and will feature photographs and silk-screen prints made by Nona Faustine, a Brooklyn-based photographer. For this iteration, Faustine will consider the legacy of monuments in the United States and explore how, as she has described, "history is turned around. What is left out, what is included, what are the lies. And who gets celebrated."

Mondrian: Art, Design, Fashion
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
The Warehouse Genet Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Discover the remarkable influence of Piet Mondrian's art on fashion and design. This exhibition, curated by Professor Jeffrey Mayer and featuring the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection, addresses the effect that Piet Mondrian's utopian neoplastic art has had on design and fashion in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Mondrian (1872-1944) was a visionary Dutch painter known for pioneering the De Stijl movement. His iconic grid-based compositions using only straight lines, primary colors plus black, white and grey, transformed the art world. His work embodies simplicity, harmony, and a universal language of abstraction.

The exhibition features not only fashion from the 1980s and 1990s but is also filled with additional "design" objects that have been influenced by Mondrian's work, including dinnerware from Kate Spade; toys from Mattel, LOL and Thomas the Train; sneakers by Nike; and packaging from the beauty brand L'Oreal's Studio Line.
