It is the year 2030 and parts of Ithaca are under water. The future is at stake as the ravages of climate change erode this community's way of life, leaving a city asking the questions: Who survives? Who decides?

"The Next Storm" (November 15–23, Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts) is a community-based play by the Cornell University Department of Performing and Media Arts (PMA), Ithaca-based theatre company Civic Ensemble, and playwright Thomas Dunn. Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr., Civic Ensemble co–artistic director and PMA senior lecturer, directs this wry comedy.

Aurora, NY - The String Room Gallery of Wells College is pleased to announce the opening of "The Strangeness of Structure," a group exhibition curated by Jonathan Duff. All are welcome to the Gallery for a public reception on Friday, Nov. 8, from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.; the exhibition will remain on view until Friday, Dec. 6, 2019.

First staged at the University Center Gallery at Adelphi University, this exhibition features the work of New York-based artists Siobhan McBride, Laini Nemett, Anna Ortiz, Kate Stone and Virginia Wagner. The work in this exhibition cites imagery of built and variously collapsing structures, illuminating a fundamental concern for the ways built and constructed systems are shifting, perhaps to our collective detriment. Paintings by McBride and Nemett illustrate instances of collapse found in residential spaces, while Wagner's and Ortiz's paintings use vibrant, hazy palettes to render structures in various states of undoing in relation to their environmental surroundings. Stone's central sculpture skews familiar domestic materials such as wallpaper, carpet, studded walls and a framed photograph to create a tension between dilapidation and the familiar.

To celebrate the bicentennial of Clara Schumann's birth, the conference "Performing Clara Schumann: Keyboard Legacies and Feminine Identities in the Long Romantic Tradition," November 16-17, 2019, will present a variety of interpretive frameworks for understanding the historical, cultural, and technological contexts surrounding the virtuosa's life and work. Conference events range from individual paper presentations, to lecture-recitals, to hands-on workshops, and will explore the feminist outlook surrounding the various keyboard networks of Clara Schumann's world and those inspired by her in subsequent times. In addition, this event not only celebrates the composer's historic achievements, but also rethinks her profound imprint on Romantic, post- (and ultra-) "Romantic" art culture.
