A lot of people residing in Onondaga County think that there is nothing going on or nothing to do here. Yet, if they knew more about CNY Arts, whose mission “is to promote, support, and celebrate arts and culture in Central New York,” they would start believing otherwise. When you visit cnyarts.org, you will be surprised of all the art and entertainment events you can experience in Central New York.
My take away from these two contrasting art shows, We Can Be Heroes: Visualizing the Life & Music of David Bowie and Angela Fraleigh: Between Tongue and Teeth, is that, in different ways, personally confirmed how art can be a powerful tool for engagement and made me appreciate the richness of the arts that we have in the New York region. Additionally, they made me question my own path as a professional fine artist.
