Suné Woods: To Sleep With Terra
Light Work Gallery

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

In the exhibition, "To Sleep with Terra," Los Angeles-based artist Suné Woods uses a variety of source material from books, magazines, and news media to create three-dimensional collages and video. Together, this body of work challenges our notions of photography and explores the terror of a technological society spinning out of control. Woods created this work in 2015 during a period of extreme racial violence, police brutality, and mass shootings.

Woods says 2015 was no more violent than previous years, but what shifted was growing documentation by citizen journalists that undermined the public's denial and disbelief. For the artist, the process of tearing, crumpling, layering, and recombining photographic imagery was "the best way for me to articulate the complicated sensations that were arising while processing these streamed documentations of violence, ecological disaster, and a desire to understand more deeply how seemingly disparate things relate when they are mashed up in a visual conversation."

This mash-up of imagery is reminiscent of how we consume information every day?sometimes minute by minute?as we scroll through a frenetic onslaught of global disasters, degradation, and violence.

Suné Woods' collage work makes art of the ordinary ephemera in our daily lives and clarifies and reveals a truth just beneath its surface. Unafraid to confront us with the brutality that surrounds us, her work only grows in relevance and urgency.

All That Jazz: 35 Years of Syracuse Jazz Fest
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Recognizing 35 successful years of Syracuse Jazz Fest, OHA offers a visual exhibit on the history of Jazz Fest. OHA's visual exhibit will feature highlights of the musical festival, from the different venues, to music industry superstars and jazz legends, as well as some of our own homegrown musical talent.

With help from Jazz Fest founder and executive director, Frank Malfitano, the exhibit will be a walk down memory lane for some die-hard local music fans: Dizzy Gillespie's bulging cheeks while playing trumpet, Jean Luc Ponty's electrifying violin, B.B. King's guitar Lucille, Buckwheat Zydeco's accordion, Wynton Marsalis' big band style orchestra, or Kenny G's saxophone; or maybe singing to the songs of Aretha Franklin, the Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, or Smokey Robinson. Whatever musical tastes exist in Central New York, Syracuse Jazz Fest has touched almost all of them.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson's expansive exhibition spaces, designed by I.M. Pei, allow the Museum to acquire and display monumentally-sized artwork. With this opportunity comes the unique challenges of caring for and exhibiting oversized work. Monumental features rarely seen large-scale pieces by
John de Andrea, Harmony Hammond, Sadashi Inuzuka, Sol LeWitt, Dennis Oppenheim, and Arnie Zimmerman, drawn from the Everson's collection, in order to foster a community conversation about the benefits and challenges associated with displaying oversized work.

TR Ericsson: I Was Born To Bring You Into This World
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

TR Ericsson uses the story of his mother to present a searing, soft, and complex portrait of post-industrial life in America. Ericsson constructs his work using traditional art materials such as canvas, bronze, photography, and clay as well as video, found objects, and heirlooms taken from his family archives. This exhibition is a specific reinterpretation of Crackle & Drag, Ericsson's ongoing project started during the years following his mother's suicide in 2003.

"I Was Born To Bring You Into This World" begins as an intimate encounter with an artist's family archive and becomes a potent opportunity to reflect and scrutinize the trials and tribulations of our own lives.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

A Little Night Music
Central New York Playhouse
Abel Searor, director

Price: $25
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée; Fredrik; Fredrick's wife, Anne; Desirée's current lover, the Count; and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both men — as well as their jealous wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret, and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase your highly trained singers with its harmonically advanced score and masterful orchestrations, and contains Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."

Suné Woods: To Sleep With Terra
Light Work Gallery

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

In the exhibition, "To Sleep with Terra," Los Angeles-based artist Suné Woods uses a variety of source material from books, magazines, and news media to create three-dimensional collages and video. Together, this body of work challenges our notions of photography and explores the terror of a technological society spinning out of control. Woods created this work in 2015 during a period of extreme racial violence, police brutality, and mass shootings.

Woods says 2015 was no more violent than previous years, but what shifted was growing documentation by citizen journalists that undermined the public's denial and disbelief. For the artist, the process of tearing, crumpling, layering, and recombining photographic imagery was "the best way for me to articulate the complicated sensations that were arising while processing these streamed documentations of violence, ecological disaster, and a desire to understand more deeply how seemingly disparate things relate when they are mashed up in a visual conversation."

This mash-up of imagery is reminiscent of how we consume information every day?sometimes minute by minute?as we scroll through a frenetic onslaught of global disasters, degradation, and violence.

Suné Woods' collage work makes art of the ordinary ephemera in our daily lives and clarifies and reveals a truth just beneath its surface. Unafraid to confront us with the brutality that surrounds us, her work only grows in relevance and urgency.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

A Little Night Music
Central New York Playhouse
Abel Searor, director

Price: $28
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée; Fredrik; Fredrick's wife, Anne; Desirée's current lover, the Count; and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both men — as well as their jealous wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret, and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase your highly trained singers with its harmonically advanced score and masterful orchestrations, and contains Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."

Suné Woods: To Sleep With Terra
Light Work Gallery

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

In the exhibition, "To Sleep with Terra," Los Angeles-based artist Suné Woods uses a variety of source material from books, magazines, and news media to create three-dimensional collages and video. Together, this body of work challenges our notions of photography and explores the terror of a technological society spinning out of control. Woods created this work in 2015 during a period of extreme racial violence, police brutality, and mass shootings.

Woods says 2015 was no more violent than previous years, but what shifted was growing documentation by citizen journalists that undermined the public's denial and disbelief. For the artist, the process of tearing, crumpling, layering, and recombining photographic imagery was "the best way for me to articulate the complicated sensations that were arising while processing these streamed documentations of violence, ecological disaster, and a desire to understand more deeply how seemingly disparate things relate when they are mashed up in a visual conversation."

This mash-up of imagery is reminiscent of how we consume information every day?sometimes minute by minute?as we scroll through a frenetic onslaught of global disasters, degradation, and violence.

Suné Woods' collage work makes art of the ordinary ephemera in our daily lives and clarifies and reveals a truth just beneath its surface. Unafraid to confront us with the brutality that surrounds us, her work only grows in relevance and urgency.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Suné Woods: To Sleep With Terra
Light Work Gallery

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

In the exhibition, "To Sleep with Terra," Los Angeles-based artist Suné Woods uses a variety of source material from books, magazines, and news media to create three-dimensional collages and video. Together, this body of work challenges our notions of photography and explores the terror of a technological society spinning out of control. Woods created this work in 2015 during a period of extreme racial violence, police brutality, and mass shootings.

Woods says 2015 was no more violent than previous years, but what shifted was growing documentation by citizen journalists that undermined the public's denial and disbelief. For the artist, the process of tearing, crumpling, layering, and recombining photographic imagery was "the best way for me to articulate the complicated sensations that were arising while processing these streamed documentations of violence, ecological disaster, and a desire to understand more deeply how seemingly disparate things relate when they are mashed up in a visual conversation."

This mash-up of imagery is reminiscent of how we consume information every day?sometimes minute by minute?as we scroll through a frenetic onslaught of global disasters, degradation, and violence.

Suné Woods' collage work makes art of the ordinary ephemera in our daily lives and clarifies and reveals a truth just beneath its surface. Unafraid to confront us with the brutality that surrounds us, her work only grows in relevance and urgency.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Rod Best's photographs depict the natural phenomenon of fall that amazes us each year with the changes of color in our forests and the greater northeast landscape. Arlie Howell finds the magic of the season within the wood itself, and adds to that a dose of whimsy, by carving spirits and fairy homes from found wood pieces.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

TR Ericsson: I Was Born To Bring You Into This World
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

TR Ericsson uses the story of his mother to present a searing, soft, and complex portrait of post-industrial life in America. Ericsson constructs his work using traditional art materials such as canvas, bronze, photography, and clay as well as video, found objects, and heirlooms taken from his family archives. This exhibition is a specific reinterpretation of Crackle & Drag, Ericsson's ongoing project started during the years following his mother's suicide in 2003.

"I Was Born To Bring You Into This World" begins as an intimate encounter with an artist's family archive and becomes a potent opportunity to reflect and scrutinize the trials and tribulations of our own lives.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

!Women Art Revolution
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

!Women Art Revolution elaborates the relationship of the Feminist Art Movement to the 1960s anti-war and civil rights movements and explains how historical events, such as the all-male protest exhibition against the invasion of Cambodia, sparked the first of many feminist actions against major cultural institutions.

The film details major developments in women's art of the 1970s, including the first feminist art education programs, political organizations and protests, alternative art spaces such as the A.I.R. Gallery and Franklin Furnace in New York and the Los Angeles Women's Building, publications such as Chrysalis and Heresies, and landmark exhibitions, performances, and installations of public art that changed the entire direction of art.

Artist Jessica Posner will facilitate a discussion following the film.

Human Rights Film Festival: For Ahkeem
Syracuse University College of Arts and Sciences

Price: Free
Hergenhan Auditorium, Newhouse 3
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning one year before the fatal police shooting of a black teenager in nearby Ferguson, Missouri, For Ahkeem is the coming-of-age story of Daje Shelton, a black 17-year-old girl in North St. Louis. She fights for her future as she is placed in an alternative high school and navigates the marginalized neighborhoods, biased criminal justice policies and economic devastation that have set up many black youth like her to fail. Over two years we watch as Daje struggles to maintain focus in school, attends the funerals of friends killed around her, falls in love with a classmate named Antonio, and navigates a loving-but-tumultuous relationship with her mother. Through Daje's intimate coming of age story, For Ahkeem illuminates the challenges that many black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive. (USA, 2017, 89 minutes, closed-captioned in English)

Introduction and Q&A with directors Jeremy Levine and Landon Van Soest.
