Active Repair: Works from the Social Justice Sewing Academy
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

One cannot think about "repair" without thinking of textile arts: the sewing of a split-open seam, the patching of a fabric hole, the darning of a sock. Founded in 2016, the Social Justice Sewing Academy is motivated by the idea that textile arts can repair more than fabric and clothing — that society can experience a kind of repair by using textile art as a framework for activism. Through more than 300 workshops at schools, juvenile detention centers, and community centers throughout the U.S., SJSA has engaged participants in scaffolded discussions about the current socio-political climate that in turn informs the creation of quilt blocks critiquing an issue plaguing their local and larger communities. These quilt blocks are then sent to volunteers around the world to embellish and embroider before being sewn together into quilts which have been displayed in preeminent arts venues across the country. The Community Folk Art Center is pleased to present a curated selection of quilts from SJSA workshops that have helped people grow as critical thinkers, artists, and advocates.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Anastasia
Broadway in Syracuse

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, this dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.

Anastasia features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) based on original direction by Tony Award winner Darko Tresnjak with choreography by Peggy Hickey and tour direction by Sarah Hartmann.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Active Repair: Works from the Social Justice Sewing Academy
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

One cannot think about "repair" without thinking of textile arts: the sewing of a split-open seam, the patching of a fabric hole, the darning of a sock. Founded in 2016, the Social Justice Sewing Academy is motivated by the idea that textile arts can repair more than fabric and clothing — that society can experience a kind of repair by using textile art as a framework for activism. Through more than 300 workshops at schools, juvenile detention centers, and community centers throughout the U.S., SJSA has engaged participants in scaffolded discussions about the current socio-political climate that in turn informs the creation of quilt blocks critiquing an issue plaguing their local and larger communities. These quilt blocks are then sent to volunteers around the world to embellish and embroider before being sewn together into quilts which have been displayed in preeminent arts venues across the country. The Community Folk Art Center is pleased to present a curated selection of quilts from SJSA workshops that have helped people grow as critical thinkers, artists, and advocates.

Based on the 2005 British film of the same name, Kinky Boots is an uplifting musical from Broadway veteran Harvey Fierstein and pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

After trying to escape his father's low-key, family ambitions for him, Charlie Price has suddenly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy.

Ultimately, Charlie decides to try to live up to his father's legacy and rescue his family business, and in doing so, he finds unlikely inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous drag queen in need of some sturdy stiletto boots, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible.
