From Domestic to Divine: Andean Ceramics from the Permanent Collection

Renegades and Reformers: American Art Pottery
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. "Renegades and Reformers" revolves around two common personality types among potters: the "renegades" who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the "reformers," whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

A Gatherin' Place
Syracuse Stage
The Harriet Tubman Troupe
Dr. Juhanna Rogers, director

Price: Free
Online


A group of Black women, residents of the same Brooklyn building, finds strength and courage as they discover the power inherent in telling their own stories in their own voices. When a beloved and iconic writer passes away, the women learn an extraordinary secret of her life—she had lived discreetly among them as a wise and compassionate neighbor. Based on the personal narratives of Central New York women, A Gatherin' Place explores the human truth often concealed beneath the surface of day to day life.

Based on the poem "It's Hard to tell a Black Woman's Story" by Dr. Juhanna Rogers, and presented as a Syracuse Story, by and for the Central New York community. Originally developed and produced at Auburn Public Theater

Available for free video on demand.

It Can’t Happen Here
Syracuse Stage
Lisa Peterson, director

Price: Free
Online


Syracuse Stage partners with more than 75 theaters across the country to broadcast a radio adaption of Sinclair Lewis's 1930s politically charged novel It Can't Happen Here. Produced by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the show stars Oscar nominated actor David Strathairn. Also in the cast is Greta Oglesby, who starred in Syracuse Stage's production of Caroline, or Change.

Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Lewis's darkly satirical It Can't Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. The new stage adaptation, which premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in 2016, closed just one week before the presidential election roiled our nation. Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production, but this time Syracuse Stage along with theaters across the country will be joining to broadcast this production as a radio play. The broadcast is intended to encourage participation in the upcoming election.

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Marty Two Bulls Jr.
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
Online


Marty Two Bulls Jr. is an artist and educator based in Rapid City, South Dakota. Two Bulls is an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and was raised in the high plains of South Dakota.

Two Bulls comes from a family of diverse artists. His father, Marty Two Bulls Sr., is an accomplished artist and was Two Bulls' first art instructor. Two Bulls grew up in his father's studio where he learned the fundamentals of sculpture, illustration, graphic design, and most importantly, how to make a living as a creative person. Two Bulls eventually went on to study printmaking and ceramics at The Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he earned a bachelors in fine arts in 2011.

After graduation, Two Bulls spent several years in Santa Fe developing his art practice and working in contemporary art galleries, where he worked with a plethora of contemporary artists from around the world. In 2017 he was offered a full time faculty position with Oglala Lakota College (OLC) to teach art. Two Bulls jumped at the opportunity to return to his homelands and work with his tribal community. Since returning home, Two Bulls has created a Graphic Arts program at OLC and continues to work as a positive force for the arts in his communities both near and far. Two Bulls has exhibited his artwork in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally with works in several museum permanent collections.

The lecture is available to the public via livestream on the Syracuse University Art Museum YouTube channel.

Dr. Juhanna Rogers, director

Price: Free

A group of Black women, residents of the same Brooklyn building, finds strength and courage as they discover the power inherent in telling their own stories in their own voices. When a beloved and iconic writer passes away, the women learn an extraordinary secret of her life—she had lived discreetly among them as a wise and compassionate neighbor. Based on the personal narratives of Central New York women, A Gatherin' Place explores the human truth often concealed beneath the surface of day to day life.

Based on the poem "It's Hard to tell a Black Woman's Story" by Dr. Juhanna Rogers, and presented as a Syracuse Story, by and for the Central New York community. Originally developed and produced at Auburn Public Theater

It Can’t Happen Here
Syracuse Stage
Lisa Peterson, director

Price: Free
Online


Syracuse Stage partners with more than 75 theaters across the country to broadcast a radio adaption of Sinclair Lewis's 1930s politically charged novel It Can't Happen Here. Produced by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the show stars Oscar nominated actor David Strathairn. Also in the cast is Greta Oglesby, who starred in Syracuse Stage's production of Caroline, or Change.

Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Lewis's darkly satirical It Can't Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. The new stage adaptation, which premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in 2016, closed just one week before the presidential election roiled our nation. Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production, but this time Syracuse Stage along with theaters across the country will be joining to broadcast this production as a radio play. The broadcast is intended to encourage participation in the upcoming election.

Bob Weir & Wolf Bros
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Rescheduled from 3/24/20.

Bob Weir, along with bassist Don Was and drummer Jay Lane, just completed their first North American tour, selling out more than half of their 22 dates. The Wolf Bros performed songs of the Grateful Dead and more in a trio setting across major markets.

One of the founding members of the legendary Grateful Dead, which received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, Weir has become one of rock's finest and most distinctive rhythm guitarists. In 2016, Weir released Blue Mountain on Columbia/Legacy, his first album of solo material in more than 10 years and his first album of entirely original material in more than 30 years. Weir is currently a member of Dead & Company which features Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti.

Don Was founded the '80s funk-rock band Was (Not Was), known for hits such as "Walk The Dinosaur" and "Spy In The House Of Love." As an in-demand, highly acclaimed producer, Was has been honored with four GRAMMY Awards for his production work in each of the past three decades, including Best Album honors for work with The Rolling Stones and Bonnie Raitt. Production credits include The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Gregg Allman, John Mayer, and Neil Young, to name a few. Albums produced by Was have achieved dozens of multi-platinum, platinum and gold certifications and have sold more than 90 million copies worldwide. As one of music's top bass players, Was has collaborated with countless musicians throughout his storied career, spanning a multitude of genres.

San Francisco-based drummer Jay Lane played with Bob Weir's RatDog for more than 16 years. He was also one of the first drummers of Primus. More recently, Lane has performed with a collection of artists including Phil Lesh and Friends.

In September 2017, Weir was named a United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador. In his new role, Weir will be teaming up with UNDP to raise awareness and mobilize support for the UN agency's work to end poverty while fighting climate change. In 2016, he received the inaugural Les Paul Spirit Award and was honored with Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association.
