The Other New York: 2012 is a community-wide, multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among fourteen venues in Syracuse. This ambitious project aims to highlight the rich talent of artists across Upstate New York, with a special focus on Central New York and the surrounding counties. The project offers diverse arts venues and outdoor public spaces for contemporary creative expression on a scale not before seen in Syracuse. In addition, TONY: 2012 demonstrates the power of artistic partnerships to boost public awareness of the arts by presenting opportunities for the community to connect with exhibitions, programs, and events offered simultaneously throughout the city.

Alternative art spaces in the form of freight containers provide temporary exhibition/installation sites. The containers are strategically located in the city to link arts venues and encourage visitors to walk and experience art along the way.

Do: Create your own Art Crawl! Use our map to plan your TONY: 2012 tour through Syracuse.

Do: Community Creativity. Join our Flickr project - anyone can participate. We will be posting some of the submitted photographs throughout the exhibition. TONY: 2012 artists use a variety of materials, techniques, and ideas to create their art, but they all have one thing in common: a natural creative spark. At the Everson Museum of Art, we know that it’s not just professional artists who have this spark - and we want you to help us show the world just how creative you are! Think about the last time you made a delicious meal, put together a killer outfit, decorated your home, knitted a sweater or tended to your beautiful flower garden. How do you express your creativity? Snap a photo of your creative expression and add it to our online creativity exhibition!

Listen: In the Artists’ Words. Listen to audio narratives by selected TONY: 2012 artists, who provide additional information about their artwork.

Watch: Artists on Art & Kids’ Take. Get behind the scenes views and learn even more about the artists from TONY: 2012. Filmed in their studios, artists discuss their artistic process, use of materials, and what they hope to communicate through their work. Also, check out Kids’ Take, where children share their views on artwork featured in the exhibition.

Write: Look, Think, Share. Look at artwork from The Other New York: 2012 and share what you think is going on in the images. Read what others have to say and think about the work in a new way.

Write: Speak Up! Reflect on your visit to TONY: 2012 and share your opinions.
