Department of Drama 2016-17 Season

"Hindsight: Four Alumni From the College of Visual and Performing Arts," installed in the Study Gallery at SUArt Galleries, features the work of artists Sarah Provoncha Burda, Angela Earley-Alves, Maggy Rozycki Hiltner and Jenny Kanzler. Each has grown in artistic practice since graduating in 1997, taking on new media and shifting subject matter that progressed from their original course of study. In addition to their campus connection, the work of these artists share overarching themes of memory, nostalgia, storytelling, and the idea of their work being more than what meets the eye at first glance.

Burda, Earley-Alves, Hiltner, and Kanzler look back on their experiences from childhood and their migrations from Syracuse, to and from various cities, rural areas, and suburbs in their post-collegiate artistic careers. Students enrolled in the graduate program in museum studies course Advanced Curatorship organized the exhibition, guided by Andrew Saluti, chief curator of exhibitions, programs and education at the Special Collections and Archives Research Center at Syracuse University Libraries.

Select programming associated with the exhibitions includes an artist panel with the four artists from "Hindsight," presented by the Visiting Artist Lecture Series sponsored by the School of Art, College Visual and Performing Arts, on Thursday, April 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the Shemin Auditorium in Shaffer Art Building.
