We Remember Them: The Legacy of Pan Am Flight 103
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

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

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21, 1988 claimed the lives of 270 individuals from 21 nations. Among those lost were 35 students returning home from a semester abroad through Syracuse University. This exhibition of materials donated to the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster by the victims' families, friends, advocates, and affected communities commemorates the 30th anniversary of the tragedy through an exploration of the ways in which the lives of the victims have been remembered. Whether through scholarship, public advocacy, art, or physical memorials, we ensure their lives and the lessons learned from their deaths are not forgotten.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

With beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, The Last Five Years is a sincere and unflinching expression of love gained and lost. The Last Five Years has been performed around the country and around the world and enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013 and a film adaptation in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

Strolling Down Salina Street: 1940-1980

This exhibit re-creates Salina Street in our large first-floor gallery, using photographs and artifacts from the many shops, so that visitors to our downtown museum can "stroll" down the grand old street once again.

From Gilded to Gustav: The Victorian and Arts & Crafts Era in Onondaga County
Onondaga Historical Association

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

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

In many respects, the Arts and Crafts movement was a rebuke of the ornate styling, designs, and increasing mechanization of production in the Victorian period. The displays will allow for museum patrons to see these contrasting styles up close.

Time Returns: A Continuous Now
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019. In our current moment of peaked social activism and political engagement, the exhibition suggests new connections among seemingly disparate topics such as the horrors of war, the impact of the Anthropocene, shifting identities, and the necessity of intimacy. "Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition is curated by the Everson Teen Arts Council, a group of high school students from Onondaga County, using the Museum's collection as inspiration for this exhibition. Teen Council members collaborated to choose a theme, select works from the Museum's collection, write wall text, and design the layout. This exploration provided Council members with insight into how museum exhibitions come to life.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

About-Face: 50 years after Stonewall. The Paintings of Joe Radoccia
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

About-Face: 50 years after Stonewall. The Paintings of Joe Radoccia
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.

Griffin House Album Release Tour with Brian Elmquist of The Lone Bellow
Listening Room at 443

Price: $22 in advance, $25 at the door (if available)
Listening Room at 443
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

"Rising Star" is not a phrase one would normally use to describe an artist like Griffin House, who has been touring for more than 15 years and has recorded over 12 studio albums.

The title of House's upcoming release, Rising Star, references the first track on the album which tells the story of a character who moves to Music City, like so many do, with a guitar and a dream. Although not intended to be autobiographical, the listener gets the sense that this comical and fictitious tale could hardly have been woven by someone without a similar life experience to the protagonist in Rising Star.

Indeed, House's story began in much the same way. Moving to Nashville as a young man in 2003 with not much more than a guitar and a handful of songs, he took a part time job downtown at a Broadway gift shop, biding his time before he caught his big break. That big break came after just a few months, in the form of a phone call from Island Def Jam Records, which jumpstarted his career and led to him signing with CAA and Nettwerk Records.

After that, things happened quickly for House. His 2004 debut album Lost and Found was lauded by music critics such as Bill Flanagan (Executive VP MTV/VH1 Networks) who featured House on the CBS Sunday Morning show as one of the "best emerging songwriters." He began touring, opening for acts like John Mellencamp and The Cranberries, and found himself meeting people like Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson. By all accounts, House seemed poised to be more of an "overnight success" rather than a "rising star"… but that's not exactly how things turned out. "I've been a "rising star" for the past 15 years" House jokes, "It's a slow rise."

Although House has enjoyed plenty of success as national headliner for over a decade and has earned a great deal of respect as a well-known performer and singer-songwriter, he seems to not take himself or his career in the music industry too seriously.

Now married, sober, and a father, House has learned to balance his career by making his family and his sobriety his first priority. He pays tribute to his wife and children with When The Kids Are Gone, a song about watching his daughters grow up and imagining he and his wife as empty nesters.

Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare Festival
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare Festival
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.
