"Breach of Peace" stays up at ArtRage until February 27, with additional events planned. This week -- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:00 PM -- the gallery screens episodes from the PBS series, "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Movement." On February 18 -- Th3 night -- there's a panel discussion, featuring former State Senator Nancy Larraine Hoffman, who's been taking Central New York students to retrace the steps of northern Civil Rights workers in Mississippi each June since 1996 with her project, the Civil Rights Connection. On February 21, Eric Etheridge visits the gallery for a talk and book-signing.
Hoffman was on hand Saturday night to talk about the impact on young people of exposure to this living history. Gallery director Rose Viviano said she encourages visits from schools and the gallery will open extra hours to accommodate group tours of students if needed.
ArtRage Gallery is located at 505 Hawley Ave., just a block west of Lodi St. During exhibitions, ArtRage is open Wednesday -- Friday, 2 -- 7 PM, and Saturdays, 12 -- 4 PM.
