Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, 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.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

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.

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.

Preview: Our Town
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

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

"The life of a village against the life of the stars" is how Thornton Wilder described his heralded masterpiece Our Town. "It is an attempt," he wrote, "to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life." He succeeded with this graceful and poetic play — a heartfelt call to cherish every unimportant moment we're together and to embrace the true wonder and brevity of being alive. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Whether in Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, at the turn of the 20th century, or Syracuse, New York, in 2023, Wilder's enduring classic asks us to stop and ponder what truly matters, and to consider that for a great many of us the answers will be the same.

Dance Nation
Syracuse University Drama Department
Katherine McGerr, director

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

"This is a play about 13-year-old girls. It's also a play about women, ambition, and desire," writes Clare Barron about her 2017 Susan Blackburn Prize-winning play Dance Nation. Set in the pressure cooker milieu of an impending national dance competition, Barron takes us into the insular world of a team from Liverpool, Ohio, to expose their rivalries, competitiveness, support, and joy, and to reveal not only their sensitivities and insecurities but their fierce undeniable power. A refreshingly unorthodox play that conveys the joy and abandon of dancing, while addressing the changes to body and mind of its characters as they peer over the precipice toward adulthood.

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.

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.

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.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Lluvia con nieve (Rain with Snow)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1955, Paramount News, "the eyes and ears of the world," projected in movie theaters around the United States images of a plane landing in Puerto Rico carrying two tons of snow and a family from New Hampshire and of the thousands of Puerto Rican youth that received them in a baseball field. These 40 seconds of film are possibly the only surviving audiovisual document of an event that persists as a foggy memory in the conscience of most Puerto Ricans.

Rain with Snow is a double projection that tries to visualize the ideological production processes behind these images of political spectacle, zooming in, stretching out, and manipulating the last cinematic vestige of this moment to interrogate the role of images in the formation of national identity. 2014, 13:30

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist whose work resists colonial forces of erasure and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Screening begins at dusk.

"What's most important to me is to be a link in the chain of folks singers before and after my time," Trapper Schoepp says in light of his forthcoming album, Siren Songs. Recorded at Johnny Cash's Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN, Trapper continues down the trail trod by his musical heroes. In 2019, the Milwaukee singer-songwriter published a long lost song with Bob Dylan called "On, Wisconsin" — making him the youngest musician to share a co-writing credit with the Nobel Prize laureate. The song led to a #1 trending article in Rolling Stone and over a hundred tour dates worldwide.

Preview: Our Town
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

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

"The life of a village against the life of the stars" is how Thornton Wilder described his heralded masterpiece Our Town. "It is an attempt," he wrote, "to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life." He succeeded with this graceful and poetic play — a heartfelt call to cherish every unimportant moment we're together and to embrace the true wonder and brevity of being alive. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Whether in Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, at the turn of the 20th century, or Syracuse, New York, in 2023, Wilder's enduring classic asks us to stop and ponder what truly matters, and to consider that for a great many of us the answers will be the same.

"This is a play about 13-year-old girls. It's also a play about women, ambition, and desire," writes Clare Barron about her 2017 Susan Blackburn Prize-winning play Dance Nation. Set in the pressure cooker milieu of an impending national dance competition, Barron takes us into the insular world of a team from Liverpool, Ohio, to expose their rivalries, competitiveness, support, and joy, and to reveal not only their sensitivities and insecurities but their fierce undeniable power. A refreshingly unorthodox play that conveys the joy and abandon of dancing, while addressing the changes to body and mind of its characters as they peer over the precipice toward adulthood.

"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.

Over the past two years, he's grappled with bouts of anxiety and depression triggered by the convergence of first-time parenthood, the deaths of two friends, and of course a never-ending pandemic. All these emotional tributaries led him back to one constant: the need to make music. The result is Westward, his fifth album (Nettwerk Records, out April 22, 2022), which works through all of the above. And in the end, we all benefit from Hyslop's liberating catharsis.

Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, 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.

Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Lluvia con nieve (Rain with Snow)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1955, Paramount News, "the eyes and ears of the world," projected in movie theaters around the United States images of a plane landing in Puerto Rico carrying two tons of snow and a family from New Hampshire and of the thousands of Puerto Rican youth that received them in a baseball field. These 40 seconds of film are possibly the only surviving audiovisual document of an event that persists as a foggy memory in the conscience of most Puerto Ricans.

Rain with Snow is a double projection that tries to visualize the ideological production processes behind these images of political spectacle, zooming in, stretching out, and manipulating the last cinematic vestige of this moment to interrogate the role of images in the formation of national identity. 2014, 13:30

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist whose work resists colonial forces of erasure and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Screening begins at dusk.

Our Town
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

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

"The life of a village against the life of the stars" is how Thornton Wilder described his heralded masterpiece Our Town. "It is an attempt," he wrote, "to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life." He succeeded with this graceful and poetic play — a heartfelt call to cherish every unimportant moment we're together and to embrace the true wonder and brevity of being alive. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Whether in Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, at the turn of the 20th century, or Syracuse, New York, in 2023, Wilder's enduring classic asks us to stop and ponder what truly matters, and to consider that for a great many of us the answers will be the same.

"This is a play about 13-year-old girls. It's also a play about women, ambition, and desire," writes Clare Barron about her 2017 Susan Blackburn Prize-winning play Dance Nation. Set in the pressure cooker milieu of an impending national dance competition, Barron takes us into the insular world of a team from Liverpool, Ohio, to expose their rivalries, competitiveness, support, and joy, and to reveal not only their sensitivities and insecurities but their fierce undeniable power. A refreshingly unorthodox play that conveys the joy and abandon of dancing, while addressing the changes to body and mind of its characters as they peer over the precipice toward adulthood.

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.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

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.

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.

Light Work Gallery

Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

Our Town
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

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

"The life of a village against the life of the stars" is how Thornton Wilder described his heralded masterpiece Our Town. "It is an attempt," he wrote, "to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life." He succeeded with this graceful and poetic play — a heartfelt call to cherish every unimportant moment we're together and to embrace the true wonder and brevity of being alive. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Whether in Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, at the turn of the 20th century, or Syracuse, New York, in 2023, Wilder's enduring classic asks us to stop and ponder what truly matters, and to consider that for a great many of us the answers will be the same.
