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.

Wayne County Fair

Wayne County Fair History

Event Date Pending for 2018

In the fall of 1849, some citizens of Palmyra, New York decided to hold a horse racing competition and display of agricultural products for their area and surrounding towns in Hathaway’s grove. Little is written about what took place after that first fair until 1856. On April 13, 1856, seventeen men organized themselves as The Palmyra Union Agricultural Society and filed corporation papers; they held a three-day fair in October that year.

The original 18 plus acres on Jackson Street, at that time on the southern outskirts of the village of Palmyra, was leased to hold the annual fair. In 1863, The Palmyra Union Agricultural Society purchased it for $6,000. Today’s assessed value of the property is over $1,000,000.

As other “Fairs” of the time and area came and went, the “Palmyra Fair” flourished, adding new buildings from profits year to year. The Fair Building, known today as Floral Hall, was erected in 1856 and still is used today; many repairs & modifications have been made over the years, but Floral Hall is the only building still remaining since that time. 1875 fair records show a plus balance of $211.93.

Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser 2018

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday, August 11 during Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2018 and you’re invited to participate.

In prior years, racers were encouraged to build their own racing beds and run them on race day. However, under the direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal have built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to roll. All you have to do is assemble a five person crew (16 years of age or older) and be one of the first six teams to register.

In addition, all entry fees have been waived, leaving you with no cost – and, frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how many times have you watched the bed races over the years and said to yourself, “That looks so cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do that next year.” Well “next year” is now!

Here’s all we ask. Once you register your crew, you will be assigned one of the six beds to run> Once your bed is assigned, then simply direct your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and everybody else you know to visit our Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in any amount in support of your team. Just open the link labelled “Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed. Click on the bed of your choice, and show your support.

All donations will go to support the important work of our parent organization, Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s important architectural and historical legacy, while operating five amazing museums and offering special events and historical programming throughout the year.

This year, we’re calling the race the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six beds and we think we should all be able to raise $1K per team. That’s the goal, and here’s one more reason for you to help us reach it: in addition to medals for each of the top three finishers and the names of the winning team enshrined on the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall, the traditional $100 first place prize will be increased to include 10% of the total donations raised for your team’s bed.

That’s right. Help us reach the goal of $1K for your bed and you’ll double your award! Or raise $6K for you bed and we’ll give you 10% of that should you finish first.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit eriecanalpirates.com, download the entry form, complete it and forward it to mojito@a2zeds.com today. Once your team is registered you will receive complete instructions for marketing the Eventbrite page and starting the donations rolling in.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns.  The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play.

Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser 2018

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday, August 11 during Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2018 and you’re invited to participate.

In prior years, racers were encouraged to build their own racing beds and run them on race day. However, under the direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal have built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to roll. All you have to do is assemble a five person crew (16 years of age or older) and be one of the first six teams to register.

In addition, all entry fees have been waived, leaving you with no cost – and, frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how many times have you watched the bed races over the years and said to yourself, “That looks so cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do that next year.” Well “next year” is now!

Here’s all we ask. Once you register your crew, you will be assigned one of the six beds to run> Once your bed is assigned, then simply direct your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and everybody else you know to visit our Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in any amount in support of your team. Just open the link labelled “Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed. Click on the bed of your choice, and show your support.

All donations will go to support the important work of our parent organization, Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s important architectural and historical legacy, while operating five amazing museums and offering special events and historical programming throughout the year.

This year, we’re calling the race the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six beds and we think we should all be able to raise $1K per team. That’s the goal, and here’s one more reason for you to help us reach it: in addition to medals for each of the top three finishers and the names of the winning team enshrined on the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall, the traditional $100 first place prize will be increased to include 10% of the total donations raised for your team’s bed.

That’s right. Help us reach the goal of $1K for your bed and you’ll double your award! Or raise $6K for you bed and we’ll give you 10% of that should you finish first.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit eriecanalpirates.com, download the entry form, complete it and forward it to mojito@a2zeds.com today. Once your team is registered you will receive complete instructions for marketing the Eventbrite page and starting the donations rolling in.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns.  The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play.

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.

HOSMER WINERY CELEBRATES 33 YEARS At their 33 Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 4th, 2018

OVID, NY, July 19, 2018 /Hosmer Winery -- Cameron and Maren Hosmer began planting grapes on the gentle slopes of Cayuga Lake in the early 1970's. After spending over 10 years simply growing and selling grapes, they made their first vintage of wine in 1985; establishing Hosmer Winery. They opened up their first tasting room in the garage of their home in the summer of 1986. In 1990, with increased production and growing recognition, the decision was made to renovate a barn across the street and inaugurate a new tasting and retail facility. This is where Hosmer Winery now welcomes thousands of visitors each year to learn about and experience Hosmer wine.

As they reflect on the 33rd year in business thus far, they can't help but look back on the great milestones. Hosmer wines were featured in Wine Enthusiast with the 2016 Pinot Noir, 2016 Chardonnay, and 2015 Limited Release Chardonnay all bringing home 90 points. Hosmer was also recognized at the NYIWC as New York Dry Riesling Winery of the Year. They are excited to be expanding their Riesling portfolio this year with 2 new wines. One of which is a Sparkling Riesling called 'Naomi', named after Cameron Hosmer's grandmother. The other wine, a Late Pick Riesling, will be unveiled at the Anniversary Party.

Starting Saturday, August 4th, 2018, Hosmer Winery invites you to join them for a two day celebration of this milestone. They will launch the 33rd Anniversary Party at 1pm with the release of their very first Late Pick Riesling. Immortal Jellyfish will be playing outside in the vineyard, Blowin' Smoke BBQ will be serving some great food, wine and beer will be available by the glass and exclusive special pricing on wine will make you want to restock your wine cellar. If you are looking to bring more than wine home with you, they will have local vendors selling their handcrafted goods on premise. Saturday's event will end at 5pm but the festivities will continue into Sunday for their weekly Music and Mimosas. Join them Sunday, August 5th from 1 - 4pm as they serve freshly-made mimosas and light snacks with live music from Marc and Tom and take advantage of the final day of our huge sales event. Standard wine tasting are also available during our normal hours. While food, wine and beer is purchasable, the rest of this event is free of charge.

Hosmer Winery is open year round on the west side of Cayuga Lake at 7020 Route 89 in Ovid, NY.

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.

Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser 2018

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday, August 11 during Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2018 and you’re invited to participate.

In prior years, racers were encouraged to build their own racing beds and run them on race day. However, under the direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal have built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to roll. All you have to do is assemble a five person crew (16 years of age or older) and be one of the first six teams to register.

In addition, all entry fees have been waived, leaving you with no cost – and, frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how many times have you watched the bed races over the years and said to yourself, “That looks so cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do that next year.” Well “next year” is now!

Here’s all we ask. Once you register your crew, you will be assigned one of the six beds to run> Once your bed is assigned, then simply direct your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and everybody else you know to visit our Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in any amount in support of your team. Just open the link labelled “Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed. Click on the bed of your choice, and show your support.

All donations will go to support the important work of our parent organization, Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s important architectural and historical legacy, while operating five amazing museums and offering special events and historical programming throughout the year.

This year, we’re calling the race the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six beds and we think we should all be able to raise $1K per team. That’s the goal, and here’s one more reason for you to help us reach it: in addition to medals for each of the top three finishers and the names of the winning team enshrined on the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall, the traditional $100 first place prize will be increased to include 10% of the total donations raised for your team’s bed.

That’s right. Help us reach the goal of $1K for your bed and you’ll double your award! Or raise $6K for you bed and we’ll give you 10% of that should you finish first.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit eriecanalpirates.com, download the entry form, complete it and forward it to mojito@a2zeds.com today. Once your team is registered you will receive complete instructions for marketing the Eventbrite page and starting the donations rolling in.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns.  The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play.

Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser 2018

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday, August 11 during Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2018 and you’re invited to participate.

In prior years, racers were encouraged to build their own racing beds and run them on race day. However, under the direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal have built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to roll. All you have to do is assemble a five person crew (16 years of age or older) and be one of the first six teams to register.

In addition, all entry fees have been waived, leaving you with no cost – and, frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how many times have you watched the bed races over the years and said to yourself, “That looks so cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do that next year.” Well “next year” is now!

Here’s all we ask. Once you register your crew, you will be assigned one of the six beds to run> Once your bed is assigned, then simply direct your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and everybody else you know to visit our Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in any amount in support of your team. Just open the link labelled “Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed. Click on the bed of your choice, and show your support.

All donations will go to support the important work of our parent organization, Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s important architectural and historical legacy, while operating five amazing museums and offering special events and historical programming throughout the year.

This year, we’re calling the race the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six beds and we think we should all be able to raise $1K per team. That’s the goal, and here’s one more reason for you to help us reach it: in addition to medals for each of the top three finishers and the names of the winning team enshrined on the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall, the traditional $100 first place prize will be increased to include 10% of the total donations raised for your team’s bed.

That’s right. Help us reach the goal of $1K for your bed and you’ll double your award! Or raise $6K for you bed and we’ll give you 10% of that should you finish first.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit eriecanalpirates.com, download the entry form, complete it and forward it to mojito@a2zeds.com today. Once your team is registered you will receive complete instructions for marketing the Eventbrite page and starting the donations rolling in.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns.  The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play.

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.

Once you register your crew, you will be assigned one of the six beds to run> Once your bed is assigned, then simply direct your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and everybody else you know to visit our Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in any amount in support of your team. Just open the link labelled “Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed. Click on the bed of your choice, and show your support.

All donations will go to support the important work of our parent organization, Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s important architectural and historical legacy, while operating five amazing museums and offering special events and historical programming throughout the year.

This year, we’re calling the race the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six beds and we think we should all be able to raise $1K per team. That’s the goal, and here’s one more reason for you to help us reach it: in addition to medals for each of the top three finishers and the names of the winning team enshrined on the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall, the traditional $100 first place prize will be increased to include 10% of the total donations raised for your team’s bed.

That’s right. Help us reach the goal of $1K for your bed and you’ll double your award! Or raise $6K for you bed and we’ll give you 10% of that should you finish first.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit eriecanalpirates.com, download the entry form, complete it and forward it to mojito@a2zeds.com today. Once your team is registered you will receive complete instructions for marketing the Eventbrite page and starting the donations rolling in.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns.  The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play.

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.

Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal invade the Village and Port of Palmyra, New York during the 11th annual Palmyra Pirate Weekend, August 10 and 11, 2018, bearing a boatload of family-friendly fun for all ages.  Bed racing, Jolly Roger 5K, Pirate Kazoo Band Parade, children’s treasure hunt, canal trail tours, Historic Palmyra pirate tales and museum tours are just a few of the exciting events featured in this year’s celebration of Palmyra’s canal connection. 

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta returns, streaking straight through the heart of the historic Main Street business district.  Five-person pirate crews will compete head-to-head against other speedy scallywags and scoundrels for a cash prize and other awards.

We've built a fleet of identical racing beds for you to run! Just bring your five-person team and we'll outfit you with a bed ready to roll! Click the link above for race applications, information, and complete racing bed specifications.

The Pirate Kazoo Band and Parade also returns to the streets immediately preceding all of the bed race action.  An official engraved Pirates of the Erie Canal Kazoo with lanyard, available for purchase on Friday, August 10, during the annual Palmyra Pirate Weekend kick-off event, a free outdoor screening of a family pirate film.

The Jolly Roger 5K run/jog/walk also returns on its certified 5K Erie Canal course. This event raises funds for Pal-Mac High School’s award winning Select Choir, who will be performing in Italy in 2019.

Food & Wine Experience

The event begins with an in-depth tour of the vineyards and winemaking facility overlooking Seneca Lake, during which we will discuss the history of Fox Run Vineyards and winemaking in the Finger Lakes region.

Following the tour, Chef Brud Holland serves guests an incredible cheese-centered lunch in our historic barrel room featuring a selection of local cheeses, charcuterie, greens and fresh baked bread. (A gluten-free option is available- however we are unable to accommodate vegan.)

Lunch will be served alongside a flight of six delicious wines, including a dessert wine.

Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser 2018

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday, August 11 during Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2018 and you’re invited to participate.

In prior years, racers were encouraged to build their own racing beds and run them on race day. However, under the direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal have built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to roll. All you have to do is assemble a five person crew (16 years of age or older) and be one of the first six teams to register.

In addition, all entry fees have been waived, leaving you with no cost – and, frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how many times have you watched the bed races over the years and said to yourself, “That looks so cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do that next year.” Well “next year” is now!

Here’s all we ask.

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.

We also want to attract music fans from the region to come & experience what downtown Auburn has to offer.” The open container law will be waived during the shows, so people can bring beers outside in cups and enjoy.

Linda Huey
Two Part Clay Class with Linda Huey: Landscape Vessels at The Rockwell Museum

Function meets beauty as you build your own bowl with a landscape design.

As seen in Higby's work, the illusion of depth will be discussed as Linda provides 1:1 guidance. All materials and tools will be provided!

Session 1: Monday, August 13, 2018

Session 2: Monday, August 27, 2018

Members: $35, Not-Yet-Members: $60

Ages 15+

Participants must participate in session 1 to participate in session 2

Advance reservations are required by 5:00 p.m. on August 12. Space is limited.

Timber frame pavilion under construction
Advanced Timber Frame Workshop

Join us for a week-long advanced timber framing workshop with Rob Hughes. This high quality, intensive learning workshop will not only teach participants a new, timeless skill, but also incorporate the history of timber framing both in the Finger Lakes and across the country.

($50 discount offered to participants who sign up for both the Intro, on July 23-27, and Advanced Workshops.)

PURPOSE: This advanced workshop is designed to provide an intensive timber framing experience while building a timber-frame pavilion to be used for shelter and future museum programs. Previous experience in the Intro to Timber Framing is preferred. Participants are expected to fully embrace both the “learning” and the “doing.” Our program is designed to develop specific skills in a particular sequence that builds anticipation and confidence. This will be an active learning process and students can expect to walk away with a deeper appreciation for the craft and the ability to take the next step and design and build a frame of their own.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: All hand and power tools will be provided. All you need to bring is eye and hearing protection, a handful of pencils (carpenter style or normal school pencils), a utility knife, and perhaps a tool apron. You may choose to bring a notebook or journal to record things you might forget, but your instructor(s) will continue to provide feedback via email/phone after the course is over. Students are also encouraged to bring their own water bottle or energy drinks daily. Hydration and electrolyte balance will become more important than you might think. Lunch will be provided by the Finger Lakes Museum.

HOW YOU SHOULD DRESS: Mid-August in the Finger Lakes can get quite warm so dress accordingly. Shorts are fine, but we will be creating an enormous amount of sawdust that will get in your shoes. Close-toed shoes are highly recommended, but you do not need work boots. We are looking for a balance of comfort and safety. The pavilion will be raised at the end of the week in the Townsend Grady Wildlife Preserve Wetlands, across the street from the Finger Lakes Museum, which will most likely be buggy.

SAFETY: We will be using a wide range of hand and power tools, most of which you are unlikely to have any past experience with. Your instructors will go over safe use of all tools (probably to the point of being annoying) and all students must not hesitate to ask for clarification as often as necessary. Of particular concern are afternoons when fatigue sets in and there is a tendency to become complacent. Perhaps the greatest thing you can do to increase safety is to listen to your body. Staying hydrated and properly nourished will be important. All students will need to complete a “Release of All Claims” form prior to using any tools.

DAILY WORK SCHEDULE: Given the large amount of joinery we will do in one short week, our days will be quite full. To avoid the heat, we will begin each day at 8:00 am, breaking for a 45 minute lunch around noon. During our lunch break, instructors will lead discussions about various cultural and historical aspects of Timber Framing and this time will also serve as question and answer sessions. Our workday will end at 4:00, but your instructor will be on site till 5:00 (depending on our production rate, students may be asked to continue beyond 4:00 whenever possible). Our target for raising the frame will be Saturday afternoon, but that may be pushed to Sunday if the weather (or productivity) necessitate the extra day.

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.

Timber frame pavilion under construction
Advanced Timber Frame Workshop

Join us for a week-long advanced timber framing workshop with Rob Hughes. This high quality, intensive learning workshop will not only teach participants a new, timeless skill, but also incorporate the history of timber framing both in the Finger Lakes and across the country.

($50 discount offered to participants who sign up for both the Intro, on July 23-27, and Advanced Workshops.)

PURPOSE: This advanced workshop is designed to provide an intensive timber framing experience while building a timber-frame pavilion to be used for shelter and future museum programs. Previous experience in the Intro to Timber Framing is preferred. Participants are expected to fully embrace both the “learning” and the “doing.” Our program is designed to develop specific skills in a particular sequence that builds anticipation and confidence. This will be an active learning process and students can expect to walk away with a deeper appreciation for the craft and the ability to take the next step and design and build a frame of their own.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: All hand and power tools will be provided. All you need to bring is eye and hearing protection, a handful of pencils (carpenter style or normal school pencils), a utility knife, and perhaps a tool apron. You may choose to bring a notebook or journal to record things you might forget, but your instructor(s) will continue to provide feedback via email/phone after the course is over. Students are also encouraged to bring their own water bottle or energy drinks daily. Hydration and electrolyte balance will become more important than you might think. Lunch will be provided by the Finger Lakes Museum.

HOW YOU SHOULD DRESS: Mid-August in the Finger Lakes can get quite warm so dress accordingly. Shorts are fine, but we will be creating an enormous amount of sawdust that will get in your shoes. Close-toed shoes are highly recommended, but you do not need work boots. We are looking for a balance of comfort and safety. The pavilion will be raised at the end of the week in the Townsend Grady Wildlife Preserve Wetlands, across the street from the Finger Lakes Museum, which will most likely be buggy.

SAFETY: We will be using a wide range of hand and power tools, most of which you are unlikely to have any past experience with. Your instructors will go over safe use of all tools (probably to the point of being annoying) and all students must not hesitate to ask for clarification as often as necessary. Of particular concern are afternoons when fatigue sets in and there is a tendency to become complacent. Perhaps the greatest thing you can do to increase safety is to listen to your body. Staying hydrated and properly nourished will be important. All students will need to complete a “Release of All Claims” form prior to using any tools.

DAILY WORK SCHEDULE: Given the large amount of joinery we will do in one short week, our days will be quite full. To avoid the heat, we will begin each day at 8:00 am, breaking for a 45 minute lunch around noon. During our lunch break, instructors will lead discussions about various cultural and historical aspects of Timber Framing and this time will also serve as question and answer sessions. Our workday will end at 4:00, but your instructor will be on site till 5:00 (depending on our production rate, students may be asked to continue beyond 4:00 whenever possible). Our target for raising the frame will be Saturday afternoon, but that may be pushed to Sunday if the weather (or productivity) necessitate the extra 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.

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.

Watkins Glen International will host legendary jam band Phish this summer – August 17th through 19th – for the group’s third festival, Curveball, at the historic circuit since 2011.

Tickets and camping, sold by the festival promoter, will go on sale Friday, March 2nd at noon ET and can be purchased online at www.phish.com or by calling 888.512.SHOW.

Tickets will not be sold by Watkins Glen International.

“We are thrilled to welcome Phish back to The Glen for another festival,” WGI President Michael Printup said. “Our facility has become a popular destination for Phish fans from around the world in the last decade, and we can’t wait to be part of another great event this August.”

Phish was founded in 1983 when freshman Trey Anastasio posted flyers around the University of Vermont campus, looking for musicians to form a band. Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, and Jeff Holdsworth answered the flyer and soon Phish was gigging regularly in the Burlington, Vermont area. The lineup solidified in 1985, when keyboardist Page McConnell joined the group and Holdsworth left soon after. In the years since, it has been a steady climb from Burlington club band to rodeo-clown backing group to regional touring act to bigger clubs, and eventually theatres and arenas worldwide. The band has sold more than 8 million albums and DVD’s in the United States, including fourteen studio albums and a multitude of live shows.

The Glen has previously been home to two major Phish festivals in the recent years: Super Ball IX (2011) and Magnaball (2015).

Watkins Glen International is the premier road racing facility in North America, twice voted “Best NASCAR Track” by readers of USA Today Keep up with The Glen on Facebook and Twitter. Tickets for Watkins Glen International’s 2018 season are on sale now and available at www.theglen.com, or by calling 1-866-461-RACE.

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.

Timber frame pavilion under construction
Advanced Timber Frame Workshop

Join us for a week-long advanced timber framing workshop with Rob Hughes. This high quality, intensive learning workshop will not only teach participants a new, timeless skill, but also incorporate the history of timber framing both in the Finger Lakes and across the country.

($50 discount offered to participants who sign up for both the Intro, on July 23-27, and Advanced Workshops.)

PURPOSE: This advanced workshop is designed to provide an intensive timber framing experience while building a timber-frame pavilion to be used for shelter and future museum programs. Previous experience in the Intro to Timber Framing is preferred. Participants are expected to fully embrace both the “learning” and the “doing.” Our program is designed to develop specific skills in a particular sequence that builds anticipation and confidence. This will be an active learning process and students can expect to walk away with a deeper appreciation for the craft and the ability to take the next step and design and build a frame of their own.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: All hand and power tools will be provided. All you need to bring is eye and hearing protection, a handful of pencils (carpenter style or normal school pencils), a utility knife, and perhaps a tool apron. You may choose to bring a notebook or journal to record things you might forget, but your instructor(s) will continue to provide feedback via email/phone after the course is over. Students are also encouraged to bring their own water bottle or energy drinks daily. Hydration and electrolyte balance will become more important than you might think. Lunch will be provided by the Finger Lakes Museum.

HOW YOU SHOULD DRESS: Mid-August in the Finger Lakes can get quite warm so dress accordingly. Shorts are fine, but we will be creating an enormous amount of sawdust that will get in your shoes. Close-toed shoes are highly recommended, but you do not need work boots. We are looking for a balance of comfort and safety. The pavilion will be raised at the end of the week in the Townsend Grady Wildlife Preserve Wetlands, across the street from the Finger Lakes Museum, which will most likely be buggy.

SAFETY: We will be using a wide range of hand and power tools, most of which you are unlikely to have any past experience with. Your instructors will go over safe use of all tools (probably to the point of being annoying) and all students must not hesitate to ask for clarification as often as necessary. Of particular concern are afternoons when fatigue sets in and there is a tendency to become complacent. Perhaps the greatest thing you can do to increase safety is to listen to your body. Staying hydrated and properly nourished will be important. All students will need to complete a “Release of All Claims” form prior to using any tools.

DAILY WORK SCHEDULE: Given the large amount of joinery we will do in one short week, our days will be quite full. To avoid the heat, we will begin each day at 8:00 am, breaking for a 45 minute lunch around noon. During our lunch break, instructors will lead discussions about various cultural and historical aspects of Timber Framing and this time will also serve as question and answer sessions. Our workday will end at 4:00, but your instructor will be on site till 5:00 (depending on our production rate, students may be asked to continue beyond 4:00 whenever possible). Our target for raising the frame will be Saturday afternoon, but that may be pushed to Sunday if the weather (or productivity) necessitate the extra day.

The O.G. and the Progeny of Keuka Lake Wine Tour

The marriage of tradition and innovation – original (O.G.) alongside the new (progeny) – is what has always defined Keuka Lake. Join us on this tour as we unfold the history of Finger Lakes winemaking, taste the present state of a diversity of fine wines being produced along Keuka lake, and get a peak into what’s in store for the region as it re-emerges as an international winemaking destination. This tour is like no other: four wineries representing a lineage of four different countries share their culture and history with each sip of the glass.

The tour begins at Dr. Konstantin Frank’s Wine Cellars, the igniter of the Vinifera wine revolution in the Finger Lakes. Enjoy a wine tasting in their 1962 Reserve Tasting roomwhere you will experience some of the very best wines in the Dr. Konstantin Frank portfolio.  As you taste the wine, your server will share stories that unfold half a century and four generations of wine making in the Frank family.

The next stop is Heron Hill Winery where John and Jo Ingle have been producing quality Rieslings, Cabernets and other Finger Lakes varietals since 1977.   Enjoy a private tasting, followed by lunch in the Blue Heron Cafe featuring locally grown ingredients.

After lunch, we make our way to the east side of the lake, to experience the the progeny of European winemaking heritage and Finger Lakes training, that are establishing their own vision for quality wine making in the region.

At Weis Vineyards, Peter Weis, originally from Mosel, Germany creates wines in the Finger Lakes that are inspired by the similar climate and minerality of his native land. With either Peter, or his wife Ashlee, you will experience wines of distinctive character such as their Grüner Veltliner, Gewürtztraminer, and house speciality, Heart of the Lake, in their converted tasting in barn.

Price: $115.00 per person. This price includes the transportation, tasting fees, added services, lunch, and special food pairings. This tour is a public tour and requires a minimum of 5 total guests in order to run the tour at the listed price. Alternate touring options are available for tours that do not meet this minimum.

This tour, or the full day lunch tour version, is also available for groups of 5+ guests Sunday-Friday upon request. Please call 607-233-4818 if you are interested in this tour for your party.

The Fine Wines of Northwest Seneca Wine Tour

Once each month during the prime season, E!FLX heads up to Geneva to explore some of the best wines along the northwestern shores of Seneca Lake. Join us on this special full-day tour where you will discover top producers, explore their commitment to process when making their fine wines, and taste the end result in your glass with custom-designed tastings created to show off the unique expression of each winery and quality being produced along this section of Seneca Lake.

We start our day at Anthony Road Wine Company.  John and Ann Martini moved to Anthony Road in 1973 “at the urging of a friend that touted the joys of grape growing in the Finger Lakes”.  Over 40 years later, the second generation has fully vested themselves in the continuation of the quality foundation laid by their parents.  Meet members of this winemaking family, visit their on-premise garden and taste their stellar wines created by winemaker Peter Becraft paired with specially-crafted, farm-sourced food selections.

Next, we head over to Bellangelo on North Seneca to enjoy an alfresco casual lunch out on their deck with a stunning view of Seneca Lake.  Each guest will be able to choose from the selection of Bellangelo’s finely crafted wines to enjoy with the picnic fare provided via The Belhurst dining team.

After lunch, we make our way to Billsboro Winery for a memorable tasting experience.   Enjoy a private tasting in the winery’s wine library featuring the beautifully distinctive wines of winemaker and owner Vinny Aliperti.  We will showcase two of his wines paired with delicious chocolates.  You may even have your tasting hosted by the chocolatier Cary Becraft who pours at Billsboro when she’s not making her amazing chocolates!

Our final stop of the day is Fox Run Vineyards.   Just as with the other stops on this tour, the wines of Fox Run Vineyards are recognized as some of the finest in the region.   Twenty-two years ago, owners Ruth and Scott Osborn, recognized the talent and skill of winemaker Peter Bell.   Since then, Peter has not only solidified the reputation of Fox Run for fine wine making, but has raised the entire bar of the region with his consulting skills and collaborative nature.  During the tasting, we will explore a carefully curated selection of Fox Run wines that demonstrates Peter’s quest for optimal expression, innovation and collaboration.

Price: $159.00 per person. This price includes the transportation, tasting fees, added services, lunch, and special food pairings. This tour is a public tour and requires a minimum of 5 total guests in order to run the tour at the listed price. Alternate touring options are available for tours that do not meet this minimum.

Tickets and camping, sold by the festival promoter, will go on sale Friday, March 2nd at noon ET and can be purchased online at www.phish.com or by calling 888.512.SHOW.

Tickets will not be sold by Watkins Glen International.

“We are thrilled to welcome Phish back to The Glen for another festival,” WGI President Michael Printup said. “Our facility has become a popular destination for Phish fans from around the world in the last decade, and we can’t wait to be part of another great event this August.”

Phish was founded in 1983 when freshman Trey Anastasio posted flyers around the University of Vermont campus, looking for musicians to form a band. Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, and Jeff Holdsworth answered the flyer and soon Phish was gigging regularly in the Burlington, Vermont area. The lineup solidified in 1985, when keyboardist Page McConnell joined the group and Holdsworth left soon after. In the years since, it has been a steady climb from Burlington club band to rodeo-clown backing group to regional touring act to bigger clubs, and eventually theatres and arenas worldwide. The band has sold more than 8 million albums and DVD’s in the United States, including fourteen studio albums and a multitude of live shows.

The Glen has previously been home to two major Phish festivals in the recent years: Super Ball IX (2011) and Magnaball (2015).

Watkins Glen International is the premier road racing facility in North America, twice voted “Best NASCAR Track” by readers of USA Today Keep up with The Glen on Facebook and Twitter. Tickets for Watkins Glen International’s 2018 season are on sale now and available at www.theglen.com, or by calling 1-866-461-RACE.

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.

Actor and photographer Jason Lee to speak at the George Eastman Museum

The George Eastman Museum welcomes actor and photographer Jason Lee to Rochester on Thursday, August 23. Lee will present a special edition Wish You Were Here talk in the Dryden Theatre at 6 p.m., followed by a signing of his new photo book, A Plain View.

Over the course of his career, Lee has been a professional skateboarder, an actor, a producer, and—for the focus of this special Wish You Were Here talk—a photographer. Lee’s latest installment (A Plain View) in his series documenting rural America consists of photographs taken in Texas in 2017. The images are rich in texture and saturation, revealing the unique characteristics of the expired 4×5 Kodak color films he photographs with. A book of this project has recently been published and will be available in the Museum Store. Lee will be signing books after the talk.

The Wish You Were Here talk will be held in the Dryden Theatre, and admission is free for museum members. General admission is $10 general and $5 for students (with ID). Doors open 45 minutes before the lecture begins, and the museum’s café will be open for dinner, coffee, or dessert.

This special edition of Wish You Were Here is co-organized by the Kodak Camera Club and generously supported by Dr. Thomas N. Tischer. The full 2018 Wish You Were Here series will be announced later this summer. Visit eastman.org for more information.  

About the George Eastman Museum
Founded in 1947, the George Eastman Museum is the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the largest film archives in the United States, located on the historic Rochester estate of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman, the pioneer of popular photography. Its holdings comprise more than 400,000 photographs, 28,000 motion picture films, the world’s preeminent collection of photographic and cinematographic technology, one of the leading libraries of books related to photography and cinema, and extensive holdings of documents and other objects related to George Eastman. As a research and teaching institution, the Eastman Museum has an active publishing program and, through its two joint master’s degree programs with the University of Rochester, makes critical contributions to film preservation and to photographic preservation and collections management. For more information, visit eastman.org.

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 Muses of Ancient Greek Mythology, task themselves to inspire the greatest Venetian artist of all time.  But instead of Venice, Italy, they find themselves in 1980s Venice Beach, California.

Together they embark on a great artistic journey to restore the mythical roller-skating rink Xanadu.
