The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Time, Again Time: Works by Ana Tiscornia
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In "Time, again time," the artist reflects on ordered fragments of a disordered world. An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

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

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

Film Talk Series: God Bless America
Film in Syracuse (Syracuse International Film Festival)
Featuring Bobcat Goldthwait, director

Palace Theater
2384 James St., Syracuse

Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of American culture, which he sees as overrun with cruelty, stupidity and intolerance. Divorced, recently fired, and possibly terminally ill, Frank truly has nothing left to live for. But instead of taking his own life, he buys a gun and decides to take out his frustration on the cruelest, stupidest, most intolerant people he can imagine -- starting with some particularly odious reality television stars. Frank finds an unusual accomplice in a high-school student named Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement, and together they embark on a nation-wide assault on our country's dumbest, most irritating celebrities.

Written and directed by taboo-busting filmmaker and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait (Shakes the Clown, Sleeping Dogs Lie, World's Greatest Dad), God Bless America is a truly dark and very funny comedy for anyone who's had enough of the dumbing down of our society.

There will be a Q&A session with the director.

Shpongle presents The Masquerade, with Phutureprimitive
Westcott Theater

Westcott Theater
524 Westcott St., Syracuse

Shpongle is an English psychedelic downtempo/psybient music project formed in 1996. The group includes Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram (one third of The Infinity Project). Their musical style combines traditional music from all over the globe and vocals with contemporary western synthesizer-based psychedelic music. When asked to describe Shpongle's music, Posford has responded that it is "like nothing you've ever heard before". Shpongle's first track, "Vapour Rumours", was released on TIP Records' Infinite Excursions compilation in 1996. Their debut album, "Are You Shpongled?," was released in 1998 on Twisted Records. Shpongle's music is heavily influenced by psychedelic experiences and frequently makes use of sonic textures that approximate psychedelic states as well as vocal samples relating to consciousness expansion, hallucinations, and altered states of awareness. Shpongle has played at events such as Ozora Festival, Camp Bisco, The Rainbow Serpent Festival, and The Hammerstein Ballroom. As of September 2011, the group has begun recording its fifth album.

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

Land of Destiny
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Land of Destiny (2010, 78 min, documentary). Directed by Brett Story who will be present for a Q & A following the screening.

A hard-working petrochemical town is rocked by revelations that its workers suffer an epidemic of cancers. But even more terrifying is the looming spectre of deindustrialization and joblessness. In the rich fabric of the city’s landscape -- rows of boarded storefronts, the bright sprawl of petrochemical plants and the swollen rooms of hospital wards and crowded bars -- one finds a microcosm of the 21st century. A portrait of a working-class city in paralysis and a mediation on work and place in the modern economy, Land of Destiny offers a poignant and universal story about work, community, and struggle in an era of globalization.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
LeMoyne College
Film Talk Series: Charlie Kaufman "Thinking at the Movies"

Grewen Auditorium
LeMoyne College, Syracuse

Screening of film, followed by talk on "Remembering Remarriage in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", with William Day, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Le Moyne College

Screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and director Michel Gondry's bittersweet, time-hopping romantic comedy stars Jim Carrey as a man who, upon learning that free-spirited girlfriend Kate Winslet has undergone an experimental procedure to have all memories of their time together erased from her mind, agrees to the same treatment ... only to regret his decision. Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, and Elijah Wood also star. Academy Award winner for Best Original Screenplay (2005).

Charlie Kaufman has won wide acclaim for creating inventive, elaborately surreal scenarios in which he composes unexpectedly nuanced portraits of the emotional lives of his characters -- people who are deeply flawed and also profoundly compelling. Our Charlie Kaufman mini-fest, celebrating in part the recent publication of The Philosophy of Charlie Kaufman, edited by David LaRocca, will explore Kaufman's unique combination of fabulation and emotional realism.

A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

Rubblebucket sounds like a kaleidoscope looks -- a continually changing pattern of ebullient drum beats, harmonies and horn exclamations, led by the buoyant vocals and saxophone of Kalmia Traver and the hyperkinetic energy of trumpet player Alex Toth. The musical couple formed Rubblebucket in 2007 after finding like-minded players at an art opening in a defunct milk bottling plant in Burlington, VT. By 2009 Rubblebucket had won a Boston Music Award for Best Live Act, while SPIN declared the group a "must-hear artist from the 2009 CMJs". Meanwhile, their studio recordings show characteristics "of what's been called the 'Yes' wave: an opposition to the '90s 'No' wave, mainly consisting of people who are virtuosic on their instruments and focus on harmonious creations." -Encore Magazine

The Brothers Size
Syracuse Stage

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

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

As You Like It
Syracuse University Drama Department
Ralph Zito, director

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

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

Being John Malkovich (1999)
LeMoyne College
Film Talk Series: Charlie Kaufman "Thinking at the Movies"

Grewen Auditorium
LeMoyne College, Syracuse

Screening of the film, followed by a talk on "The Instructive Impossibility of Being John Malkovich", by Garry Hagberg, James H. Ottaway Professor of Aesthetics and Philosophy, Bard College.

In Charlie Kaufman's first full-length screenplay, puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) is having money problems, so he takes a temporary job as a file clerk on the seventh-and-a-half floor of a large office building. One day, while rummaging behind a cabinet, he finds a portal that leads literally into the head of the actor John Malkovich (played by, yes, John Malkovich). Also starring Cameron Diaz and Catherine Keener. Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay (2000).

Screenwriter Charlie Kaufman has won wide acclaim for creating inventive, elaborately surreal scenarios in which he composes unexpectedly nuanced portraits of the emotional lives of his characters -- people who are deeply flawed and also profoundly compelling. Our Charlie Kaufman mini-fest, celebrating in part the recent publication of The Philosophy of Charlie Kaufman, edited by David LaRocca, will explore Kaufman's unique combination of fabulation and emotional realism.

Bill Wallauer and Kristin Mosher
University Neighbors Lecture Series

Price: $10 regular, $5 with student ID
Westcott Community Center
Corner of Euclid Ave. and Westcott St., Syracuse

For 15 years, videographer Bill Wallauer followed the wild chimpanzees in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, capturing the intimate details of their daily lives for the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which is led by renowned primatologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall. He has videotaped chimpanzee births, dominance displays, infanticide attempts, encounters with snakes and "rain dances." Much of his footage is unprecedented, including capturing a live birth on tape. Wallauer's infectious personality and jaw-dropping footage help audiences understand how chimpanzees are like humans, sharing 98 percent of the same DNA and many personality traits.

Kristin Mosher is a professional wildlife photographer and sound recordist. She previously worked as a Jane Goodall Institute staff member, and continues to partner with Wallauer on production work for JGI. The SUNY Oswego alumna's photographic work has appeared in many publications, including National Geographic, BBC Wildlife Magazine and numerous books. Currently, the couple completed a three-year project with Disneynature documenting the behavior of chimpanzees for a major motion picture, Chimpanzee.

This special family event is a fund raiser for the Westcott Community Center and the Jane Goodall Institute.

Imagine the sound of young voices coming together for a common goal. At our season finale performance, we present a concert that will highlight the themes of friendship and community.

Through a series of winter workshops facilitated by composer Paola Marquez, artist Vanessa Johnson, African dance instructor Yesutor Kotoka-Wiley, Ghanaian traditional drummer Etse Nyadedzor, poet Rachel Guido deVries, and InterFaith Works of Central New York, students in the Syracuse Children's Chorus and the Imagine Syracuse Young Musicians Project had an opportunity to talk about their perception of peace and conflict in their lives while writing poetry, creating mixed media works of art, and learning traditional African dance and drumming. The music, poetry, and visual art generated from these workshops has inspired an original composition and interactive art exhibit to be featured during this concert. Accompanied by pianist Sabine Krantz, the Chorus will share the stage with singers from the Imagine Syracuse Young Musicians Project to perform a varied repertoire of musical selections featuring the work they helped to create, Voices of Peace, by local composer Paola Marquez.

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Noriko Ambe: Inner Water
The Warehouse Gallery

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

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

Unsung Heroes Series: Pressure Cooker
Redhouse

Price: $8 regular, $5 members
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

As part of its "Unsung Heroes" Documentary Film Series, Red House Arts Center will screen Pressure Cooker, an inspirational film released in 2009, directed by Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker, to celebrate innovative teachers and administrators in CNY as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.

Pressure Cooker follows an unorthodox Culinary Arts teacher, Mrs. Stephenson, who is partially known as a tyrant throughout her Philadelphia public high school for her hoarse rebukes of her students' creations. She may be disarmingly blunt, but three seniors at Frankford High School find her an unlikely champion in the kitchen. A legend in the school system, Mrs. Stephenson's hilariously blunt boot-camp method of teaching Culinary Arts is validated by years of scholarship success. Against the backdrop of the row homes of working-class Philadelphia, she has helped countless students reach the top culinary schools in the country. And under her fierce direction, the usual distractions of high school are swept aside as Erica, Dudley and Fatoumata prepare to achieve beyond what anyone else expects from them.

Café sales for the evening and the following day will benefit Outliers, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to providing social, artistic, and educational support services and programs in order to help facilitate the process of reintegrating underrepresented minorities into academia and higher education. This organization's mission is to inspire kids to push beyond life's obstacles, a theme also present in the film.

Running Time: 1 hr. 39 min.

Teachers and administrators: bring your school ID and be eligible for great raffle prizes!
