The Museum hosts ArtRage Gallery’s screening of Red, White and Blueprints: A Rustbelt Documentary from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Friday, September 16. The event is part of the Gifford Foundation’s “What If…” film series and is free and open to the public. Red, White and Blueprints examines how cities like Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit have worked together to reinvent themselves. A moderated discussion asking “What if we tried this in Syracuse?” follows. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for refreshments and free parking is available in the lot on Erie Boulevard East under routes 81 and 690. We hope to see you!
