Community Nights on the Plaza

Community Nights on the Plaza are brought to you by LightWork Urban Video Project (UVP) and the Everson Museum of Art.  The program runs year-round during select weeks at dusk. Check back for updates on upcoming programs!

Urban Video Project (UVP), a program of Light Work in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art and Onondaga County, is an outdoor architectural projection venue dedicated to the public presentation of film, video and moving image arts. UVP is one of few projects in the United States dedicated to ongoing public projections and adds a new chapter to Central New York’s legacy as one of the birthplaces of video art using cutting-edge technology to bring art of the highest caliber to Syracuse, New York.

Colectivo Los Ingrávidos: Batalla
October 27—December 17, 2022

The work of Mexico-based Colectivo Los Ingrávidos is an exercise in formal experimentation as an act of political and spiritual resistance to mass media and its collusion with state power and extractive capitalism. This exhibition will feature three short but potent film works by the collective: Fracking, Tear Gas, and Batalla.
