Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

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

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.

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, NY

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.

From the Vault: Dumbo First Took Flight in Syracuse
Onondaga Historical Association

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

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Everson Museum of Art

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting. The Club has an extensive history of supporting the Everson, including financial support for the acquisition of some of the Museum's most iconic pieces, such as Adrian Saxe's Untitled vessel from 1980, which graces the cover of the Museum's American Ceramics catalog. Over the past decade, the Social Art Club's gifts have strengthened the Everson's connections to Central New York through donations of work by indigenous and regional artists.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

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.

Both of these art forms have morphed and changed in contemporary India, creating space for artists to use their art to comment on issues facing their lives, their nation and the planet. Their work deals with a variety of injustices such as violence against women, female infanticide, political corruption, climate change, and war.

NRO core contributors Adam Khalil (Ojibway), Zack Khalil (Ojibway), and Jackson Polys (Tlingit) use video and performance to collectively challenge European settler and colonialist tendencies — such as "playing Indian" — with what they call "sites of savage pronouncement," the purpose of which is to shift potential obstructions to Indigenous growth and agency.

Created for UVP and shot in and around Syracuse, "Terminal Addition" uses local archives, collections, and locations, including the Columbus Monument in downtown Syracuse and the Saltine Warrior on the Syracuse University campus.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Central New York Playhouse
Alyssa Otoski Keim, director

CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt, NY13214

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

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

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.

All the King's Men (1949)

Price: $5 suggested donation
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse, NY

Directed by Robert Rossen with Broderick Crawford, John Ireland and Mercedes McCambridge.

Based on the Pulitzer-prize winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men takes a blistering look at the rise of politician Willie Stark, from idealistic farmer to shady governor even as it shows the corrosive effect of a poisonous political process upon the human soul. Unflinching direction, a powerhouse performance by Broderick Crawford in the lead role, and striking black-and-white camerawork expose the seemingly timeless link between politics, greed and corruption.

This is a movie that has not only stood the test of time but is shockingly relevant today. Hailed by critics and public alike, it won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. Robert Rossen was nominated for Best Director.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

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, NY

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.

Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

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, NY

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.

Hosmer Auditorium, Everson Museum

The Everson Museum is marking a year-long celebration for the 50th anniversary of its I. M. Pei-designed home – an architectural masterpiece which opened in 1968. The history of how the museum evolved, physically, from borrowed space in a downtown office building in 1897 to its landmark tour de force is a fascinating story. It is one woven through local history touching on a James Street family fortune, controversies of post-World War II civic renewal, and the vision of dedicated patrons. Local historian Dennis Connors will explore that legacy in an illustrated lecture covering that 70-year passage which eventually created the Everson Museum edifice that we treasure today.

So many Central New Yorkers have fond memories of coming to Syracuse and taking in the shops, the sights, and the sounds of Salina Street, the heart of Downtown. 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.

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse, NY

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.

From the Vault: Dumbo First Took Flight in Syracuse
Onondaga Historical Association

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

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972

Everson Museum of Art

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

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.

Culture Capture: Terminal Addition
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse, NY

Light Work's Urban Video Project presents "Culture Capture: Terminal Addition" by the New Red Order (NRO). NRO core contributors Adam Khalil (Ojibway), Zack Khalil (Ojibway), and Jackson Polys (Tlingit) use video and performance to collectively challenge European settler and colonialist tendencies — such as "playing Indian" — with what they call "sites of savage pronouncement," the purpose of which is to shift potential obstructions to Indigenous growth and agency.

Created for UVP and shot in and around Syracuse, "Terminal Addition" uses local archives, collections, and locations, including the Columbus Monument in downtown Syracuse and the Saltine Warrior on the Syracuse University campus.

The exhibition will be on view on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art from dusk until 11:00 pm.

Eliza Gilkyson
Folkus Project

Price: $20 regular, $17 members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse, NY

The daughter of legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson, Eliza entered the music world as a teenager, recording demos for her father. Since then she has released 20 recordings of her own, and her songs have been covered by such notables as Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush, and Rosanne Cash.

Gilkyson's music has always offered a vivid reflection of the times we live in, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is "poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy."

The Grammy-nominated songwriter has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, XM Radio, Air America Radio and has toured worldwide as a solo artist and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dan Fogelberg, as well as with the Woody Guthrie review, Ribbon of Highway-Endless Skyway, alongside the Guthrie Family, Jimmy Lafave, Slaid Cleaves, and special guests Pete Seeger, Jackson Browne and Kris Kristofferson.

She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside such legends as Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt and Nanci Griffith and is an ongoing winner of the Austin Chronicle's various music awards, as well as Folk Alliance awards for Best Artist, Best Songwriter and Record of the Year.

Her CD Land of Milk and Honey was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Eliza's meditative "Requiem," written as a prayer for those who lost their lives in the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia, was recorded by the nationally recognized choral group Conspirare, whose version was nominated for a Grammy and won the prestigious Edison Award in Europe. The song has become a standard in choir repertory the world over.

Two of her songs appeared on Joan Baez's Grammy-nominated CD, Day After Tomorrow. In addition to touring in support of her previous release, Roses at the End of Time, in 2011 and 2012 Eliza and label-mates John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky performed as "Folk Super Trio" Red Horse, a side project whose CD stayed for months at the top of the Folk Music Charts.

Eliza was invited to contribute a track on the 2014 Jackson Browne tribute, Looking Into You, along with Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Sara Watkins, Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin and others. She received her second GRAMMY folk nomination in 2015 for her album The Nocturne Diaries. In early 2018, Joan Baez covered Eliza's song "The Great Correction" on her covers album Whistle Down the Wind. Eliza's 20th album, Secularia, was released this past summer.

The Humans
Syracuse Stage
Mark Cuddy, director

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

Critically acclaimed winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play, The Humans offers a compelling look at a slice of contemporary life as seen through a family Thanksgiving celebration. The Blakes of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Eric and Deirdre, have come to Chinatown to spend the holiday with their adult daughters, Aimee and Brigid. Along for the celebration are Momo, Eric's mother teetering in and out of consciousness, and Richard, Brigid's boyfriend. Of course, they eat turkey, but when they talk turkey, it really gets interesting. A blisteringly funny and poignant play by Stephen Karam about people we might know and people we could be.

Preview: Good Kids
Syracuse University Drama Department
Holly Thuma, director

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

A hard-hitting and clear-eyed look at the troubling aftermath of the sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl by members of a high school football team. Based on actual events, Good Kids, by Naomi Iizuka, examines how social media makes private lives public in ways we don't always anticipate and can't always control. At the same time, it sheds light on issues that are often treated as isolated incidents — but which, in truth, reflect attitudes and beliefs prevalent in the culture at large.
