Public Art Intersecting History: Past Reflections and Future Opportunities

But there are also unlimited opportunities for our history to inform the creation of public art that can be creative, place-making and community building. Come explore both past examples and future prospects for such “historical” public art, especially around Greater Syracuse, with Dennis Connors, former curator of history at the Onondaga Historical Association.

Fences

Fences is the sixth chapter in August Wilson’s groundbreaking ten-play cycle of the African-American experience in the 20th century. The play depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball player, thwarted in his dreams of a Major League career, who struggles to provide for his family and break free from the boundaries imposed upon him. But in 1957, his son Cory, an emerging football star, sees the world through very different eyes, and his wife Rose, yearns for an outlet for her love. With the intersection of old prejudices and changing opportunities, Fences is a powerful drama filled with passionate love and thundering rage, generous laughter and searing pain. Chances are, you will be challenged to leave the theater with your emotions in tact with this powerful play. Fences was most recently made into an Oscar nominated film starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, who took home the award for Best Supporting Actress.

The Story of Water: The Erie Canal as a Site of Untold Stories

This unique exhibit by Linda Zhang of Ryerson University in Toronto and Biko Gray of Syracuse University features clay vessels based on 3-D drone scans of central New York Erie Canal structures, transformed by the introduction of Canal water before the firing process. The clay models symbolize the Erie Canal's profound and lasting impact, positive and negative, on the lives of those who built it, used it, and lived near it. On exhibit in the second-floor Weighlock Gallery of the Erie Canal Museum, 318 Erie Boulevard East, Syracuse.

Renegades & Reformers: American Art Pottery

On View January 25 – July 5, 2020

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.

On View April 11 – May 10, 2020

Across the country, Department of Veterans Affairs facilities incorporate creative arts into their therapy programs to help Veterans recover from and cope with physical and emotional disabilities. The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival is an annual celebration of the progress and recovery made through that therapy and is a way to recognize the creative achievements of our nation’s Veterans. The competition begins at a local level, where Veterans enrolled in VA health care facilities submit work in visual arts categories ranging from oil painting to leatherwork, as well as categories in the performing arts and creative writing. First, second, and third place entries are awarded for each category, and the competition culminates in a national exhibition featuring selected gold medal winners. A selection of the participants from the Syracuse VA Medical Center are displayed at the Everson.

SSITP's I Hate Hamlet

A modern farce, by Paul Rudnick, from the early 90's about a TV star, Andrew Rally, who has been cast to play Hamlet in NYC's Shakespeare-in-the-Park but doesn't want to do it. Upon uttering, "I Hate Hamlet," he is visited by the ghost of John Barrymore whose sole mission is to get him to play Hamlet. Hilarity ensues as we meet Andrew's real estate agent, two theatrical agents competing for Andrew, Andrew's girlfriend and Barrymore's former lover as they push and pull Andrew in many directions simultaneously.
