Onondaga Historical Association

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

The exhibit explores animals as subjects in artwork. Animals have captured the attention of artists in Onondaga County throughout history. Some are wild animals that are integral to the natural landscape. Others are domestic helpers that assist with transportation or supplying food, or loving companions to their owners. The artwork style ranges from George Knapp's traditional early 20th century to Irene Wood's quirky mid 20th century imagination, and will include wood sculptures created by local artist Juan Taylor. The exhibit will be a treat for all animal and art lovers!

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear — instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

"Curious Vessels" is a celebration of both Rosenfield's eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. Coming this spring, the Everson's new cafe´, Louise, will be stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection that you will be able to eat and drink out of.

Without Courage There Are No Other Virtues
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For the past 20 years, Robert Shetterly's Americans Who Tell the Truth portrait series has tried to be a lantern that throws its light forward and back — knowing the truth of the past's struggles for justice is essential to seeing clearly the obstacles and possibilities in the future.

ArtRage welcomes Robert back with this exhibition of 20 portraits not previously exhibited in our space. Shetterly selects his subjects as "real, complex human beings, whose acts for the common good can be emulated by all of us, any of us — they need to be emulated by all of us! The saving grace of a healthy democracy is not a handful of heroes but a culture of engaged citizenship inspired by the courage of truth tellers. Courage invigorates democracy. For twenty years it has been the mission of Americans Who Tell the Truth to teach responsibility for the injustices we create and provide role models for how to remedy them for a just society."

Suneil Sanzgiri: Golden Jubilee
Urban Video Project

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

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.

Dan Shanahan: Scenes of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dan Shanahan's paintings highlight the quiet beauty found in everyday scenes of city life. The watercolors, which Shanahan paints en plein air and on location, depict residential and downtown city streets. While Shanahan's paintings are mostly devoid of people, they teem with evidence of a small but bustling city: cars line the roads, and businesses prosper along downtown city blocks. Featuring renderings of popular locations, including Armory Square, Franklin Square, and the Westcott and University neighborhoods, Scenes of Syracuse is a love letter to our distinctive urban environment.

Shanahan is a selected artist from the Everson's CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of artists living in Central New York.

Anni Albers: Work With Materials
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Precious Metal: Gold Across Space and Time
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

On August 17, 2017, scientists around the world and at Syracuse University witnessed the collision of two neutron stars that resulted in the production of gold, platinum, and other heavy metals in space. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of this momentous discovery, this exhibition considers how people have exploited gold's unique physical properties to make art and to convey ideas about spirituality, power, and opulence.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with Stefan Ballmer (Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Duncan Brown (Office of Research, Office of Academic Affairs; Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Steven Penn (Physics, Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Romita Ray (Art and Music Histories, College of Arts and Sciences), Daniel Sarmiento (Special Collections Research Center), and Irina Savinetskaya (Special Collections Research Center).

Suneil Sanzgiri: Golden Jubilee
Urban Video Project

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

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Everson Museum of Art

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear — instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

"Curious Vessels" is a celebration of both Rosenfield's eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. Coming this spring, the Everson's new cafe´, Louise, will be stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection that you will be able to eat and drink out of.

Everson Museum of Art

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment.

By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Price: Free

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Dead to the Core
Folkus Project

Price: $18 regular, $15 Folkus members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Dead to the Core is a collective of singer-songwriters and acoustic musicians with a shared love of the Grateful Dead. Musician/author Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers leads the tribute.

The musicians celebrate the band's music not through note-for-note re-creations but by playing the songs their own way — letting them grow and evolve collaboratively in the true spirit of the Dead. Interspersed with the music are clips from Rodgers' own interviews with Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, in which they reflect on the roots and evolution of the music.

A Dead to the Core show is an experience unlike any other Grateful Dead tribute: a night of deeply personal performances that illuminate the masterful song craft of one of America's most original bands.

Clue
Central New York Playhouse
Dan Rowlands, director

Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder-mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects.

Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out ... WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!

Annie
Broadway in Syracuse

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Holding onto hope when times are tough can take an awful lot of determination, and sometimes, an awful lot of determination comes in a surprisingly small package. Little Orphan Annie has reminded generations of theatergoers that sunshine is always right around the corner, and now the best-loved musical of all time is set to return in a new production – just as you remember it and just when we need it most.

Annie, directed by Jenn Thompson, features the iconic book and score, written by Tony Award—winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse, and Martin Charnin. This celebration of family, optimism, and the American spirit remains the ultimate cure for all the hard knocks life throws your way.
