The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at the University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture; give critiques to the students they work with; and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty, and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in VPA’s School of Art.
In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world’s largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America’s foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project. Just Our Type highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy’s original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University’s new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University’s Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse’s own signature typeface.

Take some of the greatest songs ever written for Broadway and Hollywood, mix them with a fabulous let’s-put-on-a-show style story and the result is the joyous Gershwin celebration Crazy for You. When a stage-struck, wealthy, Manhattan ne'er-do-well named Bobby Child finds himself in a broken down Nevada mining town, he sets his sights on rescuing a bankrupt theater and loses his heart to the beautiful and talented Polly Baker. Boy meets girl, Times Square meets tumbleweed, and great music meets great dancing. Who could ask for anything more?
