Here’s a brief comment from Gallery 4040 Curator Anne Novado about her quest to work with artist Juan Cruz. Cruz’s show “equilibrium” is the third show at 4040, which is located in the New Court neighborhood. We didn’t know Novado was involved in the ThINC project back in the day. May the art continue.

The list of TEDx Syracuse University speakers has been released. We look forward to some meaningful discussions (and seeing some familiar faces) on April 9, 2014.
Anna Deavere Smith breathed life into several characters during her lecture/performance at Syracuse University on Tuesday afternoon. She almost perfectly embodied the conversational cadence and idioms of former Gov. Anne Richards, Rep. John Lewis and theologian Peter Gomes for about an hour.
Maybe her most impressive role was portraying prisoner Paulette Jenkins for a piece called “Mirror to her Mouth”. This sobering tale, filled with domestic violence, murder and regret, moved the crowd toward an almost religious silence.
