Lunchtime Lecture: Canal Related Shipwrecks in Onondaga Lake

Chris Sabick of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum will discuss the recent environmental clean up operations that were carried out in Onondaga Lake, which revealed a wide variety of sunken vessels resting in its waters.

Off the Rack

On view through May 5, 2024

Off the Rack is the happy by-product of a major renovation of the Everson's on-site art storage. As hundreds of paintings and framed works are displaced from their racks while renovations take place, the public has an unprecedented opportunity to view objects that have been in deep storage for years, never-before-seen recent acquisitions, and some perennial favorites—all hung together salon-style in our exhibition galleries. This smorgasbord of paintings and works on paper showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum's collections and provides a glimpse into the world of collections management and care.

Jewels from the Fire: 20th Century Enamels

On view February 10-April 28, 2024

Due to the use of similar materials and processes, enamels share a close relationship with ceramics. Rather than working on clay surfaces, enamellists work on metal, creating everything from functional jewelry and dinnerware to wall-mounted panels. The pigments used in the process of enameling, known as enamels, behave similarly to ceramic glazes. Made up of mineral pigments and a glassy powder called frit, enamels can be painted as a liquid or sifted and sprinkled onto a surface while dry. The enameled metal is then placed in a kiln at temperatures ranging from 1400°F to 1650°F. After cooling, artists often add and fire additional layers of enamel, which creates seductive, jewel-like surfaces.

The Everson Museum houses a significant collection of enamels by artists like Ellamarie and Jackson Wooley, June Schwarcz, and Edward H. Winter, and several leading ceramists like Gertrud and Otto Natzler and Carleton Ball also worked in enamel. Many venues that showed ceramics also championed enamels, including the Everson’s Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are experiencing a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape

On view February 10, 2024-May 12, 2024

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape is organized by the Barry Lopez Foundation for Art & Environment. Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Barry Lopez Foundation works with contemporary artists to organize exhibitions addressing climate change, biodiversity, habitat loss, and our relationship with the land in a time of environmental crisis.

Sana Musasama: Returning to Ourselves

On view February 3, 2024-April 28, 2024

Throughout her career, Brooklyn-based artist Sana Musasama has drawn inspiration from travel and research into global cultures. Returning to Ourselves centers around a series of dolls that Musasama produced that mirror African-American topsy turvy dolls containing a white doll whose skirt can be flipped up to transform it into a Black doll. Musasama uses this formal structure to juxtapose different figures drawn from the global Black diaspora. Returning to Ourselves is rounded out by a series of ceramic houses Musasama began early in her career but returned to during the pandemic to combat looming depression.

"Poetry is language at its most distilled and powerful." -Rita Dove

In this first four-week installment of Salty Spring Poets Club, we will pour language into classical poetic forms. What can forms like the sonnet and haiku teach us about calibrating language with power and intentionality? How does the prose poem emerge as a tool for breaking the rules and sequencing images? Each session, we will investigate a handful of poems written by contemporary poets and write our own poems in conversation with form and immediate environment.

Using the Everson’s permanent collection and rotating exhibitions, we will write in response to visual artworks relevant to our desires and interests. Sessions will prioritize generative writing and supportive, encouraging feedback. At the end of the month, we will perform for our loved ones and peers, coming away with a portfolio of four or more carefully crafted poems.

Misha Tentser is the Arizona-born son of Ukrainian immigrants. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Crosswinds Poetry Journal, Sonora Review, Terrain.org, and North American Review, where his poem "Half Kaddish" was a finalist for the 2023 James Hearst Poetry Prize. Misha is a community educator, translator, MFA candidate in Poetry at Syracuse University, and the author of the chapbook Born in the Wrong Desert (Mouthfeel Press, 2023).

Godspell

Conceived and Originally Directed by JOHN MICHAEL TEBELAK

Music and New Lyrics by STEPHEN SCHWARTZ

Originally Produced on the New York Stage by

EDGAR LANSBURY / STUART DUNCAN / JOSEPH BERUH

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the Broadway legend behind Wicked, and based on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Godspell is a modern imagining of the last days of Jesus. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Often comedic and at times haunting, Godspell is a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man.

I've Learned To Hold Myself Softly: Cali M. Banks

Comprised of 30 images and one film, Banks has created an exhibition with Syracuse as her muse.

She began documenting her hometown of Syracuse in November 2022. When she traveled back to places of importance during my "coming of age" years, she realized many places of both solace and nostalgia have been demolished or abandoned. Banks started to rework this experimental, documentary project with ideas of "teardown towns" and blind tradition. She utilizes self-portraiture, still-lives, and architecture that is specific to Syracuse, and symbolism depicting bodies, ritual, and sensuality, which in turn uses nonverbal communication as a way to emphasize tradition. This project also explores the complexities of layers of existence through materialistic remnants and the essence of non-tangibility. With a rapidly changing hometown as the core of the work, Banks is capturing attention with a familiar setting to the community.

In/Visible Breaths: Afro-poetics in Technology

An Afro-Surrealist public humanities project that uses museum-based archives—from the Syracuse University Art Museum and Special Collections Research Center at SU—within virtual- and extended-reality (VR/XR) technology to generate meditation-based visual art experiences that incite literacy development. Navigating mindfulness at the intersection of technology and literacy, this project hopes to inspire moments of stillness and reflection by embedding various breathing techniques and mantras within the VR/XR installation and the Afro-poetic stimuli itself. Participants will be able to interact with the virtual environment and create poems based on their own experiences.

Crime of the Century: Evelyn Nesbit, Harry Thaw, and the Murder of Stanford White

Evelyn Nesbit first captivated Americans with her beauty and charm, then became the sympathetic focus of the Crime of the Century in 1906, following the murder of her former paramour, famed architect Stanford White, by her unhinged millionaire husband, Harry K. Thaw. The staged reading of a new play by Syracuse playwright Garrett Heater mixes early musical theater sensationalism with the tragedy of Nesbit's abuse by men, money, and the media.
