ArtRage: The Norton Putter Gallery

505 Hawley Avenue Syracuse, NY

WELCOME! Gallery CLOSED until 9/10/16

ArtRage is no ordinary gallery.

We are committed to breaking down the art world’s boundaries about who is welcome. We believe that everyone has the right to art and that art is essential to building an open, just world. Our vision for change is one that creates a community of open-minded, tolerant individuals with an appreciation for the inclusion of art in everyday life. We offer the community an experience that encourages the breakdown of boundaries so that people can see themselves in the work and then in one another. We exhibit art that cultivates critical thinking skills; leading to question the power structures that exist in our society and to imagine other ways of life.

That, we believe, is the seed of a movement for cultural and social change.

Ray McGovern, Retired CIA Officer
“Allegations keep cropping up in the press that CIA alumni
are undermining the Bush/Cheney administration.
In at least one sense, I suppose, this is true.
For when an administration embarks on a war justified by little
or no intelligence, speaking the truth can be regarded as treachery.
The country could use more of that kind of  ‘treachery.’ “

As our first presenter from the Americans Who Tell the Truth speaker series at ArtRage, we are proud to host a talk with Raymond McGovern. Mr. McGovern is a retired CIA officer turned political activist who writes and lectures about, among other issues, war and the role of CIA. He holds an M.A. in Russian Studies from Fordham University, a certificate in Theological Studies from Georgetown University, and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program.

Demand the Impossible! Utopian Dreams in This Political Moment
“There is, after all, no basis for education in a democracy
outside of a faith in the enduring capacity for growth in ordinary people
and a faith that ordinary people … can, if they choose, change the world.”
– Bill Ayers
