Calendar of Events in the Finger Lakes

Festivals, Happy Hour, Live Music, Theatre, and More!

It doesn’t matter what your interests are or who you’re in the Finger Lakes with, you can always find a great event to enrich your time in the region with those you care about. 

Events take place all year round in the Finger Lakes region. From lakeside (and on the lake) events in the summer to harvest activities in the fall, snowmobiling or snowshoeing in the winter, and festivals in the springtime! Step inside a glassmaker’s studio to blow your own glass, stroll Main Street on a food tour, or gather for live music and theater performances. Browse the list of Finger Lakes events below or search the specific dates you will be visiting to see everything going on in the region.

Great Events that Happen Every Year

Below, you will find dozens of great events happening throughout the year with many of them happening annually. If you have memories of favorite annual Finger Lakes events from childhood such as cardboard boat regattas, hot air balloon festivals, cheese, apple or pumpkin festivals, to name a few, it’s likely that event that still takes place or, has likely improved your enjoyment. If you see a special event that piques your interest but can’t make it, click on the event anyway, it might be coming back next year!

Events Added Daily

Make sure to check back frequently to see if any other great events have been added. Events are added daily by businesses from every sector and interest so if there is nothing that sparks your interest now, there very well could be soon!

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Come join us for story time at 6:00pm, as we read The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition written by Carol Aebersold.

Like all of our First Friday events, the Holiday Scavenger Hunt is admission free. We will be open from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, with a story time reading at 6:00 pm.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the 1890 House Museum at events@the1890house.org or (607) 756-7551.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Innovative Production of The Nutcracker To Be Staged at Rose Hill Mansion

The Geneva Historical Society is again partnering with Breadcrumb Productions to bring a new and innovative holiday production to Rose Hill Mansion on Sunday, December 9, 2018. The immersive theatrical experience will take place throughout the mansion’s first floor.
 
Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a riveting theatrical journey inspired by the dark and intriguing origins of E.T.A. Hoffman's original tale. Immersed in a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution, audiences will choose their own pathways and allegiances through the space. We meet Marie—an imaginative young woman on the precipice of adulthood—her Godfather—a mysterious and eccentric inventor—and the Revolutionary—a bold soldier with a plan that could very well turn life upside down for Marie and her family. The boundary between imagination and reality blends as political, familial, and mental unrest come to a climax, and all lose sight of what and who can be trusted.
 
Performances are at 6 and 8 p.m. with a reception from 7 to 7:45 p.m. Each performance is 60 minutes. Tickets are $20 per person and include the performance and reception. Space is limited and reservations are required.  Call 315-789-5151 for tickets or purchase online at brownpapertickets.com. The Carriage House Gift Shop at Rose Hill will also be open during the event.
 
Rose Hill Mansion is an 1839 Greek Revival mansion open May through October for tours. It is located at 3373 Route 96A, about a mile south of Routes 5&20, near Geneva, New York. Rose Hill is administered by the Geneva Historical Society.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince at the 1890 House Museum

 

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is an immersive theatrical journey inspired by the dark and intriguing origins of E.T.A. Hoffman's original tale. Immersed in a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution, audiences will choose their own pathways and allegiances through the space. We meet Marie, an imaginative young woman on the precipice of adulthood, her Godfather, a mysterious and eccentric inventor, and the Revolutionary, a bold soldier with a plan that could very well turn life upside down for Marie and her family. The boundary between imagination and reality blends as political, familial, and mental unrest come to a climax, and all lose sight of what and who can be trusted.

Breadcrumbs Productions will be performing at the 1890 House Museum on December 14th and 15th, with shows at 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

A mobile performance in a Victorian House!
Marie and the Nutcracker Prince at the 1890 House Museum

 

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is an immersive theatrical journey inspired by the dark and intriguing origins of E.T.A. Hoffman's original tale. Immersed in a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution, audiences will choose their own pathways and allegiances through the space. We meet Marie, an imaginative young woman on the precipice of adulthood, her Godfather, a mysterious and eccentric inventor, and the Revolutionary, a bold soldier with a plan that could very well turn life upside down for Marie and her family. The boundary between imagination and reality blends as political, familial, and mental unrest come to a climax, and all lose sight of what and who can be trusted.

Breadcrumbs Productions will be performing at the 1890 House Museum on December 14th and 15th, with shows at 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

Adults are $20 and Children are $15. Purchases of 5 or more tickets are $12 each, regardless of who is in your group!

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Brooklyn
Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

yentl
Yentl at the George Eastman Museum

Barbra Streisand purchased the story rights ten years before she was able to convince Hollywood to make this film, eventually becoming the director, co-writer, co-producer, and star. In 1904 Poland, Yentl wishes to become a religious scholar, though that’s exclusively the realm of men. She disguises herself as a boy and takes her late brother’s name to study Talmudic Law. As Anshel, she befriends Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin), who is engaged to Hadass (Amy Irving). When Hadass’s family rejects the engagement, Avigdor convinces Anshel/Yentl as his best friend to marry her instead. Yentl won an Oscar for Best Original Score, and Streisand was the first woman to win Best Director at the Golden Globes.

SING! An Irish Christmas featuring Keith and Kristyn Getty

Modern hymn-writers Keith and Kristyn Getty, known for songs such as “In Christ Alone” and “Speak O Lord,” are set to embark on their seventh annual Christmas concert tour of “Sing! An Irish Christmas.”

The Gettys, who have helped to reinvent the modern-hymn form, are now invigorating Christmas carol singing in cities across America. Keith Getty was recently awarded the “Officer of the Order of the British Empire” (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to “music and modern hymn writing.” The Getty’s Christmas concert tour has grown to be one of the largest annual Christmas concert tours in the nation and has been broadcasted on public television to over 45 million households across the country. They will be joined by their award winning band of instrumentalists – fusing Celtic, bluegrass, Americana, modern and classical music as well as cultural dance and the choral sounds of the holiday.

“We believe that there is no more imperative time for believers to gather together in song than at the Christmas season,” says Keith Getty. “For many, this season represents celebration and joy, yet for others it can be a painful reminder of those we’ve lost. In any instance, we are all strengthened when we declare our faith through singing, and the great Christmas carols are some of the best expressions we have of the truths we believe.”

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

dickens christmas carol
The Hangar Theatre Company Presents: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

Community Performance: Will be available free of charge to support arts accessibility to underserved populations in Tompkins County. Interested individuals and community groups may contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.

The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.

Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window

Gail Albert Halaban’s Out My Window is both a penetrating exploration of modern community and a group of moving and beautiful photographs. The project started when she moved to New York from Los Angeles. In an effort to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, she began to use her art as a way of connecting with her neighbors. She starts by explaining her work to potential participants and asking for their involvement. If they agree, Albert Halaban facilitates communication among the neighbors and arranges to photograph one from the window of the other. In this way, Albert Halaban employs photography as a form of social engagement. For despite platitudes about modern technology making the world a smaller place, this same virtual environment can also result in feelings of isolation and extreme self-absorption. By connecting strangers who live across the street from each other, Albert Halaban’s expertly composed, beautifully rendered, large-scale photographs encourage viewers to take a fresh look at the people they see every day.
