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.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Chess
Central New York Playhouse
Robert G. Searle, director

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

Chess is a musical, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, and with lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster—and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater for its time as it allegorically reflected the Cold War tensions present in the 1980s, with the show embodying the government manipulations and paranoia, and the xenophobic attitudes present in the political climate of the time. The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the whole Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the "Reagan Doctrine," Chess played a powerful role in addressing and satirizing the hostile political atmosphere of the 1980s.

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.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Chess
Central New York Playhouse
Robert G. Searle, director

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

Chess is a musical, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, and with lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster—and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater for its time as it allegorically reflected the Cold War tensions present in the 1980s, with the show embodying the government manipulations and paranoia, and the xenophobic attitudes present in the political climate of the time. The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the whole Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the "Reagan Doctrine," Chess played a powerful role in addressing and satirizing the hostile political atmosphere of the 1980s.

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II, after his coworker crush. Open Hand Theater has hand-crafted Audrey II, the foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination.

Alice in Chains
Landmark Theatre

Price: $45-$71
Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Though their earliest origins lay in '80s-style glam metal, Seattle's Alice in Chains became one of the signature bands — along with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nirvana — associated with the 1990s' Grunge movement. Signed to Columbia Records in 1989, AiC vocalist Layne Staley, guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Starr and drummer Sean Kinney developed a distinctive style blending melancholy vocal harmonies, downcast lyrics, and contrasting hard and soft elements — elements that reflected their inspired creative duality across two albums featuring mostly electric alternative metal (1990's "Facelift" and 1992's "Dirt") and two EPs of introspective acoustic music (1992's "Sap" and 1994's "Jar of Flies"). By the second half of the '90s, drug abuse had torn the band apart: first leading to the replacement of Starr with new bassist Mike Inez (in 1993) and, later, Staley's slow descent into heroin addiction (both musicians are now deceased), and a long hiatus from touring and recording. Finally, Cantrell, Kinney. and Inez resurrected Alice in Chains with new singer/guitarist William DuVall in 2005, and have since toured consistently and released a pair of well-received LPs, Black Gives Way Blue (2009) and The Devil Put The Dinosaurs Here (2013).
