A one-time performance of PORTRAITS - THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES will be held as an Artrage fundraising event on Sunday, June 22. The doors open at 7pm for a coffee & dessert bar with an 8 p.m. performance. It will be staged at the Artrage Gallery, 505 Hawley Avenue, Syracuse.
Artrage is an exciting new venture, located in the historic Hawley-Green neighborhood, scheduled to begin exhibiting in October 2008! A project of the CORA (Community Outreach and Resources for the Arts) Foundation, Artrage is no ordinary art gallery. Its mission is to exhibit progressive art that supports social justice, challenges preconceptions, opens minds, inspires resistance and encourages cultural change. The dynamic Board of Directors is comprised of professional artists, long time social activists, educators and community planners of diverse experience, ages and race. All are committed individuals who share a desire to bring this unique gallery experience to Syracuse, joining the handful of progressive art galleries which currently exist nationwide. For more information about the gallery or to get on a mailing list for future notices, contact Rose Viviano 559-5387.
The Vagina Monologues is directed by Yair Sherman and the Sugar Pearl Players cast members include Barbara Busch, Carmen Viviano- Crafts, Deborah Sorrentino, Heather McNeil, Jenny Busch, Jordan Gross, Nikki Page, Silky and Tammy Lynn Wilkinson with Grace Perry as the Stage Manager. Tickets are $15 at the door (includes artisinal coffee & dessert). For ticket reservations call 422-7427.
