Tuesday, February 26

HISTORY: 7:30 PM at The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St.

Charles Loring Elliott (1812-1868) was one of the most prominent American portrait painters of

the 19th century. His works hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery in

Washington, D.C., the Everson Museum in Syracuse – and in the Skaneateles Library, where nine

are on display. Visitors to the library often ask about these portraits. Who are they? Now,

thanks to research by Sally Holbien, these former Skaneateles residents have been identified.

Dannette Davis, librarian at Seymour Library in Auburn, will present a slide show and will share

the stories of these portraits and the artist who painted them.

Dec. 28th & 29th – “I AM” – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  I AM is an utterly engaging and entertaining non-fiction film that poses two practical and provocative questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? The filmmaker behind the inquiry is Tom Shadyac, one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners and the creative force behind such blockbusters as “Ace Ventura,” “Liar Liar,” “The Nutty Professor,” and “Bruce Almighty.” However, in I AM, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed, and to investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live and walk in the world.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 12/28, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 12/29, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669
