The city’s riots, 50 years later
In recent weeks, there has been a great deal of effort to remember our collective history and the racial uprising of July 1964. This effort is incredibly important, as the history of people’s movements demanding and winning change is essential to this day. The history of FIGHT taking on one of the largest and most powerful corporations of its day to demand racial and economic justice is an incredible social-justice victory in the history of this city. What I find saddening, however, is that there seems to be a collective amnesia about the history of many in the white community who actively organized to support the demands of FIGHT, forming the organization Friends of FIGHT. What is particularly alarming about this collective amnesia is that Friends of FIGHT continues to exist, as Metro Justice, a multiracial community organization dedicated to social, economic, and racial justice. There seems to be a convenience in forgetting about Metro Justice, an organization of 900 members that continues to be a thorn in the side of current power players demanding genuine justice through people’s movements. 2 CITY
Our seven-point program for economic justice calls for justice in the fields of health care, education, and jobs. We have recognized for 49 years the continued need for movements of everyday people to demand genuine justice in these fields. We continue to fight for genuine universal health care in New York State. We are working towards equitable education funding and restorative justice in our schools to end the school-to-prison pipeline. We are part of the nationwide Fight for 15, demanding a living wage and a union for fast-food workers in the city. The multi-racial community fight for social, economic, and racial justice continues in Rochester, in part through Metro Justice, whose members vividly remember our history as Friends of FIGHT.

Rochester, the city that embraced Frederick Douglass, was long known for its tolerance of AfricanAmericans. So says the great baritone, 1950’s Broadway star, and actor William Warfield in his autobiography “My Music and My Life.” Warfield was born in Arkansas but grew up in Rochester, where his father was minister at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church. He wrote about being “safely in Rochester” as lynchings were still commonplace in the South: “From our safe vantage in Rochester... there was often the sense that all these terrible things were happening in a foreign land. By contrast, we were safe in our melting pot, surrounded by a vigorous tradition of tolerance.” Could decades and decades of tolerance have changed by July of 1964? What changed was the influx of thousands of

blacks during the mass migration from the South after World War II. Rochester’s resources and social services were overwhelmed. Frustration in the black community spilled out into the streets. Blocks and blocks of stores were looted and burned. Parts of the city resembled a war zone. In fact, armed troops had to be called out to restore order. The riots tore at the fabric of the city, and fear among whites was real. Forced busing in the years that followed accelerated the flight to the suburbs, and resulted in a city even more segregated. And a halfcentury later, this city has not fully recovered. There has been an attempt by some to rewrite history, to almost forgive the lawlessness of the rioters. If similar riots were to happen today, with armed soldiers called in by the governor to quell the violence and restore peace, would we regard the lawbreakers as victims? I hope not. RAY LEVATO

I live in the suburbs but I used to live in an apartment in the city. We eventually were able to buy a home in a modest suburb because we wanted more space and a yard. After many years, we’re close to paying off the mortgage. So it bothers me that one of the solutions suggested for the problem of poverty is to build low-cost subsidized housing in the suburbs (“Riots Still Haunt Rochester,” News). Really? How does it help the problem of poverty by spreading it out around the county? It doesn’t address the problem at all. And if transportation to jobs is also a problem for the poor, doesn’t it make that harder if they’re dispersed? Does that
mean they will need access to low-cost cars in addition to housing? The other problem is the burden on suburban schools with the influx of people. We’ll have to pay for that, too, I suppose. If we help low-income people move to towns adjacent to the city, can I get help to move to a more affluent suburb like Pittsford or Mendon? FUMING
Racism does exist, but it exists as much on the blacks part as whites. When I go into parts of the city like Genesee-Jefferson, JayOrchard, and Lyell Avenue, I lock the doors and try to not get stopped at lights, even if it means running red ones. It’s not because I’m paranoid, it’s because the people there view me with suspicion and hostility. I’m not one of “them” because of the color of my skin and never will be. Jay-Orchard is ranked in the top 10 most violent neighborhoods in the nation. We can either pretend that the problems are all external and not their fault, or they can do what they should and take responsibility. If I don’t want to go through Lyell or Conkey Avenue, there’s a reason. I don’t want to be the victim of essentially an urban terrorist attack. I shouldn’t have to. I can go through any neighborhood in Chili, Brighton, Pittsford, Penfield, or Fairport without a problem. SEAN
And on education…
I understand Mark Hare’s frustration with the city school system and its failing students (“Lessons for Rochester from Raleigh”). What Raleigh seems to have done is create an environment that changes the mathematical
distribution of families by creating magnet schools; thus scores and the number of graduates improve. That would be expected. But it does not solve the underlying problem; it only dissolves it a bit. If we don’t develop a plan to educate both child and parent from the poor neighborhoods, those who are poorly educated will continue to exist. It is the lack of respect for education in our city homes that creates an environment for failure. If a parent failed in school and has no use for that facility, you can’t get the kid there. If a parent can’t read, he or she can’t help a kid to learn to read; if they can’t do math, they can’t help their child do math. If parents never developed a good value system and ethics, they can’t teach and re-enforce a good attitude in their kids. I have to laugh at the state, district, and University of Rochester solution to the East High problem. They are attacking an aspect of the facility, the teaching faculty, which will not improve the student outcome. Not one parent of a failing student will be affected by this new approach, and thus the real problem related to the failure of students at East will not be solved. Lastly, more money in the wrong place also solves no problems. A beautiful, well-equipped facility with a teaching staff with a list of suffixes after their names cannot fix a problem that they have no contact with: parents. Not sure what you really learned in Raleigh, but until we figure out how to change the culture of the city family, nothing can be accomplished in the classroom. BILL BROWN

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The Great War This week is the 100th anniversary of the start of that senseless, eminently avoidable explosion of violence, World War I – the Great War that was to end war. Plus ça change. Winged spirits must be gathered together above us, watching, heads bowed in grief. Gaza, Israel, Ukraine, Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Iraq, Libya: armed conflicts are spreading violence and carnage everywhere we look. Read the news, and you pull your hair in anguish. As the anniversary approached, I’ve been morbidly fascinated by the human devastation in World War I, and by the maddening mistakes, mistrust, and misunderstandings that led to it. You can’t read any book on the war without wondering why this keeps happening, everywhere in the world. Are violence and war simply in our genes? Look at this quote from Modris Eckstein’s 1989 book, “The Rites of Spring”: “In August 1914, most Germans regarded the armed conflict they were entering in spiritual terms. The war was above all an idea, not a conspiracy aimed at German territorial aggrandizement….” And this: “Despite sufficient evidence from the Crimean War, the American Civil War, and the Boer War that a major conflagration would involve long, drawn-out, and bitter fighting, few strategists, tacticians, or planners, German or any other, foresaw anything but a quick resolution to a future conflict.” And this: “…war was regarded, especially in Germany, as the supreme test of spirit, and as such, a test of vitality, culture, and life…. It was an expression of a superior culture…. an essential part of a nation’s self-esteem and image.” As I was reading that section of “Rites of Spring” earlier this summer, the conflict in Iraq was heating up, and Dick and Liz Cheney were taunting President Obama in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, charging that his foreign policy was the cause, and announcing the formation of an organization that will “advocate for a restoration of American strength and power.” The Cheneys aren’t alone in that attitude; military might is the default solution to conflict, tension, threats, and perceived threats. That mindset is what got us into Iraq. It’s why the possibility of US military engagement continues to lurk in the shadows as we watch the carnage unfold around the world. It’s how much of that carnage got started, and why it continues. Gershom Gorenberg, writing last week in The American Prospect about the tragedy in
On the 100th anniversary of World War I’s outbreak, can we begin to embrace peacemaking and diplomacy as signs of strength? Israel and Gaza, noted the other paths that could have been taken. Why, he asked, have both sides in that conflict made such irrational decisions? As a partial answer, he cited a 2007 article in Foreign Policy, “Why Hawks Win,” by psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Jonathan Renshon. Human beings, Kahneman and Renshon wrote, exaggerate their strengths. We’re overly optimistic about our chances. We misread the behavior and intentions of others. We’re convinced that our own behavior is simply a response to someone else’s behavior. “In fact,” they wrote, “a bias toward hawkish beliefs and preferences is built into the fabric of the human mind.” World War I claimed an estimated 16 million lives – soldiers and civilians, young and old, French, German, Russian, Belgian, British, Serbian, Austrian, American…. The countryside of Europe is dotted with the cemeteries holding them. Village after village has monuments memorializing them. The Great War didn’t end war. In times of conflict, threat, or perceived threat, the use of military force still seems safer and surer. Caution and diplomacy are dismissed as signs of weakness. Maybe we should think about how we define “strength.” And maybe this anniversary is the time to do it. The focus of a war commemoration is usually heroism, the bravery of those who fought the battles, the innocents who were sacrificed, the civilians who resisted. And in World War I, as in other wars, there was an abundance of all of that. This particular war, though, should serve principally as a monument to the cost and the futility of war. And to other paths we can take. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Attorneys for Robert Wiesner and the State Attorney General’s Office appeared in court to argue whether the AG’s office should be allowed to present Wiesner’s case to a new grand jury. But acting State Supreme Court Justice Robert Noonan reserved his decision on the matter. Wiesner, the husband of County Executive Maggie Brooks, is one of four defendants accused of participating in a bid-rigging scheme involving county-linked local development corporations; he faces two charges. Noonan also dismissed five charges against another defendant, Daniel Lynch. But Lynch still faces approximately 20 charges.

County Executive Maggie Brooks sent a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo and the federal Department of the Interior saying she’d oppose any request from the Seneca Nation of Indians to put a casino in Monroe. Earlier this year, the Seneca Gaming Corporation purchased 32 acres on Clay Road in Henrietta to develop a casino, hotel, and other facilities. But Henrietta officials and residents opposed the project and the Senecas said they won’t proceed unless the community is on board; they did not rule out making a future push for the project.

RPO names new music director
Rochester is the fifth poorest of the country’s 75 largest metros, according to a report by the Rochester Area Community Foundation and ACT Rochester. The report says that Rochester is the second poorest of comparably sized cities, has the third highest concentration of extremely poor people, and has the poorest urban school district in the state.

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has named Ward Stare music director, signaling the organization’s embrace of a youthful vision for its future. Stare, a 31-year-old Pittsford native and conductor who has received international recognition, will begin his tenure on September 1, the RPO announced Tuesday. The position has been vacant since January 2013, following the RPO’s dismissal of Arild Remmereit. “We looked at a number of really good candidates,” said Dawn Lipson, RPO board chair, during an interview with City. “But ultimately, what we thought we needed for the RPO was someone who really had a new vision for the orchestra.” Lipson said the RPO was searching for a leader who would collaborate with the community in order to achieve their goals and grow as an organization. “I think the RPO is ideally suited to be an innovator and leader in the Classical community,” Stare said during Tuesday’s press conference. Stare, 31, is the 12th music director in the organization’s 91-year history. Born and raised in Pittsford, Stare began
studying trombone at age 9 and was accepted into the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra at 11. He graduated early from Pittsford Mendon High School and continued to study trombone at the Julliard School in Manhattan. At 18, Stare became the principal trombonist for the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra, and during his time there, began to pursue conducting. After studying in Europe and at Aspen’s American Academy of Conducting, Stare made his conducting debut in 2012 with the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He completed his four-year tenure as resident conductor of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Stare has received high acclaim for his conducting, including winning the Robert J. Harth Conductor Prize in 2006 and the Aspen Conducting Prize in 2007. The Chicago Tribune called Stare “a rising star in the conducting firmament.” Lipson said when the RPO began searching for a new music director — through a committee led by RPO Board Vice Chair Ingrid Stanlis — the organization assessed what the orchestra continues on page 7

Closing in on the immune system Most of the images that researchers use to help them understand the immune system are essentially snapshots. Despite advances in medical technology, the images don’t show much activity, which limits researchers’ understanding of how the immune system works. Cells could be right next to each other, for example, and give the appearance that they are interacting when they aren’t. It illustrates how much is still unknown about the human immune system. “A cell could seem like it’s communicating with this other cell, but it’s just there,” says Deborah Fowell, University of Rochester associate professor of microbiology and immunology. “That really tells us nothing about how they interact in the tissue.” But a study under way at the UR could lead to new imagining techniques that would allow clinicians to view the immune system in real time — while it’s actively responding to an infection or fighting a disease. Having that ability, says lead researcher Fowell, could be a game-changer and someday allow clinicians to manipulate the immune system’s response in some cases. The work is being funded by a $9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
Fowell’s team at the UR consists of Minsoo Kim, an associate professor of microbiology and immunology; James Miller, professor of microbiology and immunology; and David Topham, also a professor of microbiology and immunology. The researchers will use the university’s Multiphoton Core Facility, which uses advanced technology to produce what researchers call “in vivo” or Deborah Fowell.

Vargas under pressure The Rochester school board heard from more than two dozen students, teachers, and principals at a meeting last week who came to protest Superintendent Bolgen Vargas’s decision to remove Monroe High School Principal Armando Ramirez from his post. Vargas planned to replace Ramirez, who has been principal at Monroe since 2012, with Barbara Zelazny from the Avon school district. But after a closed-door deliberation, the board announced that while Zelazny would be hired, she will not be Monroe’s principal. The decision was not a victory for Ramirez or his supporters, however. Vargas said he still planned to look for a new principal for Monroe. And on Tuesday, it was announced that Vicma Ramos, the district’s executive director of student placement and school operations, would take the post. Ramos was Monroe’s principal from 2009 to 2012. Much of the backlash about Ramirez stemmed from how Ramirez says that he learned he was being replaced — via a resolution on the district’s website. The handling of the situation as well as contradictory views about Monroe’s performance under Ramirez’s leadership has Vargas on the defensive. Though Vargas apologized to Ramirez for the manner in which his removal was communicated, the growing opposition to Vargas from administrators and principals is palpable.

ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Environmental moves make good business sense Bob Bechtold built a successful manufacturing company by embracing new technology, not treating it as a threat. Bechtold founded Harbec, Inc., almost 40 years ago in the Wayne County town of Ontario as an all-purpose machine shop. Computerized machine tools were just starting to make their way to shop floors, and some in the toolmaking and machining industries worried that the technology would supplant highly skilled workers. Bechtold says he believed that computers would be the best tool that toolmakers ever had. “And so I began wherever I could to change Harbec general purpose machine shop into Harbec, utilizer of technologies and opportunities to forge new business opportunities,” he says. And since the late 1990’s, Bechtold has taken a similar approach toward his company’s environmental footprint. It’s important for Harbec, and for other companies, to take responsibility for their environmental impacts, he says. So Harbec now includes environmental considerations in its decision-making. And it looks to technology to lessen those impacts. As a result, Bechtold says, Harbec is more competitive and has improved its financial performance. “It really has become an integral part of the company that I think will continue after I fade into the sunset,” he says. Harbec employs more than 140 people at its facility on Route 104. It produces incredibly precise plastic and metal components for companies in a variety of industries. Like most manufacturing facilities, its operations are energy intensive. Yet last year, its energy use was carbon-neutral. Many companies are taking steps to reduce their environmental impacts. Apple and Google attracted a lot of attention for their efforts toward carbon neutrality. And locally, Diamond Packaging purchases wind power to cover all of its electricity needs, for example. But companies’ claims of carbon neutrality are frequently met — and rightly so — with skepticism, often because they rely on purchased emissions offsets. While Harbec makes some use of offsets, its emissions reductions have largely resulted from energy efficiency projects and use of renewable energy sources. Harbec has made years’ worth of serious, deliberate efforts to reduce its environmental impact. And government officials and local environmentalists periodically single the company out for those efforts, citing it as an example for other mainstream companies to follow. The push started with the installation of an on-site combined heat and power system, 6 CITY
JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 2014
which was essentially a large energy efficiency project. The system’s generators burn natural gas to create electricity, and the hot steam also produced during that process is used for heating and air conditioning. Over the next few years, Harbec installed two wind turbines, which now generate about 60 percent of the company’s electricity. It buys another 20 percent of its electric from the grid, though from carbon-free sources. Between the turbines and the purchased power, Bechtold says, the company avoided 1,632 metric tons worth of carbon emissions last year. Harbec’s combined heat and power system provides the remaining 20 percent of the company’s electricity, Bechtold says. Since the system burns fossil fuels, however, it does produce carbon emissions. Last year, the company purchased 670 tons — 608 metric tons — worth of carbon offsets to cover the emissions as well as the emissions of all company vehicles, Bechtold says. Now, Harbec is adding water conservation to the mix. The company is participating in a new extension of the US Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge, which emphasizes reducing energy use by reducing water consumption. Harbec plans to do that by recycling water and reusing rainwater — relying on municipal fresh water only for drinking and hand-washing. In a recent interview, Bechtold talked about his company’s energy and environmental initiatives. The following is an edited version of that discussion. CITY: When did you begin incorporating environmental principles into the company?
Bechtold: In the late ’90’s. I had been very interested in it and working successfully with it at home. I had my first wind turbine at home in 1980, and a lot of things like that I was learning about, experimenting with, and got a level of confidence that eventually I began to try and bring it into the company. And by the late ’90’s, the company was pretty substantial and good revenue flow and all that, so I thought it had potential to be just as dynamic for a manufacturing company as it was for our home. And that’s where it began. What was the company’s first step?
The first thing I thought would work was a wind turbine. The problem was, back then, it was impossible to get funding for a wind turbine. At the same time, we were having an issue with heat in our shop. There was no relief. You could put fans up, but you were just blowing hot air. And so I began to look into ways of air conditioning an injection molding plant. To put it into perspective, the molding room is
9,000 square feet and there are 25 injection molding machines in it. So the task is comparable to taking a gymnasium and putting 25 industrial pizza ovens in the gymnasium, turning them all on high, and running them 24 hours a day. I began studying what the Europeans were doing with energy and efficiencies and learned about combined heat and power. With only using the waste heat — the thermal opportunity — of onsite power generation, we’re air conditioning [the shop] with almost no new energy. All of the things that we do, rest assured that I can show lots of detail about how economically advantageous they are to this business. When in early days I was beating my head against the wall trying to sell this, to get a bank to provide the lending, I realized one day that I was branding myself as a burned-out hippie because I was talking green stuff. So I stopped, came back in and rethought the whole story, and then went from Bob Bechtold. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN that day forward always economic. Once I did that, I went back out and talked to the bank about economic opportunities and doing footprints. So if anyone should start to be combined heat and power and a wind turbine responsible for the impact, it’s the biggest together. I was able to bank it. And ever since impacters. And that’s us. And so that’s why we then, it’s been always the lead. I start out by are the kind of company we are. showing whoever it is how the economic I started out wanting to make my little advantages happen, then if they’re interested and impact on my home, and then I thought if I they want to learn about it, I can show them could do it there, why couldn’t I do it in the how much carbon is saved and everything. factory?

needed, and what the community desired. The search committee made an effort to have each of the final candidates meet with different parts of the community — RPO musicians, donors, patrons, staff — and that Stare “exceled at every position we put him in.” “Music director is a big job,” Lipson said. “A lot of people think it’s just up there conducting — which conducting in and of itself is not easy — but it is much more than that. The music director also reaches into the community and connects with people and really can help people who are a little confused or a little concerned that maybe the RPO isn’t for them. He can help them understand it on a different level.” During Tuesday’s press conference, Ward said he would like to “embrace new initiatives and ways to reach out to audiences.” He didn’t go into specifics, but suggested that there were possibilities to update the concert experience by incorporating other forms of media: video, smartphone apps, etc. According to Lipson — and echoed by Mark Kellogg, RPO principal trombone and chair of the musician’s section of the search committee — Ward brings innovative ideas to reach new audiences while retaining the RPO’s artistic quality. “You use the same wheel, but you use it a little differently,” Kellogg said. “I think that’s incredibly important and he gets that. I think he’ll be the right person to help us find and define new ways to do that.” At 31 years old, questions about Stare’s youth and possible inexperience were discussed during his vetting, both Lipson and Kellogg said. But after his interview process, those worries were eased, Kellogg said . “The sense we all got from Ward is that he has good ideas, but he also demonstrated a willingness to want to work together on things that he may need more guidance with.” Stare will assume the music director position on September 1 — moving to Rochester to work full time — but will only conduct one concert this year: the RPO’s season opener on Thursday, September 18, and Saturday, September 20. The programming for the 2014-15 season is already set, but Stare will begin work on the 2015-16 season. “In the orchestra, we’re all very excited to see how the relationship with him will develop,” Kellogg said. “I think Ward has already demonstrated tremendous work and great accomplishment in his very short career, and I think his trajectory has such potential.

The most important meal of the day [ ROUND-UP ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM
The food world can be a divisive place where finding something that most people agree on is difficult, to say the least. Despite that, almost everyone loves to eat food stuffed between two pieces of bread. I’m a huge fan of sandwiches, and specifically, I have become obsessed with great breakfast sandwiches. There’s something irresistible to me about having a whole meal delivered in a handheld package in the morning. None of the formality, but with all of the flavor. If we missed any amazing spots to grab delicious, unique breakfast sandwiches in Rochester, leave us a comment on this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com. For a food lover, there is no better way to spend a Saturday morning than walking around the Rochester Public Market sampling breakfast goods from any number of vendors. I’m going to focus on two vendors that offer similar dishes on completely different ends of the food spectrum. Flour City Bread Co. (52 Public Market, 957-3096, flourcitybread.com) sits firmly with a strong focus on local ingredients and some of the best bread products in the Rochester area. To go along with the fantastic selection of whole loaves and pastries, you can order off
of a short menu of egg-based sandwiches on your choice of biscuit, croissant, or Danish. The eggs are local and either poached or fried properly, the cheese comes from First Light Creamery and the sausage and bacon come from Swan Market. It’s a great sounding sandwich on paper and one that translates well to your mouth. On the other side of the market, Scott’s II (280 North Union Street) doesn’t have the same focus on local ingredient sourcing, but the sandwiches are pure classic from top to bottom. The style of food is mirrored by the environment that it comes from; a simple hamburger shack with no frills and only a counter with stools for those who chose to sit and eat. The line cooks at Scott’s do a fantastic job of putting a strong crisp on the fresh Martusciello hard roll and the eggs are cooked quickly in order to keep up with the typical lines. American cheese and either crispy bacon or sausage patties finish it off. The result is a greasy, crunchy, and immensely satisfying sandwich. If you want a basic sandwich done well, Scott’s is your place. Tucked behind the Park Bench Pub on Monroe Avenue, Voula’s Greek Sweets (439 Monroe Avenue) is kicking out real-deal Greek food without the aid of meat. It has daily dinner specials and a huge selection of
traditional desserts, but Saturday morning brunch is the only time you can get the Kafteri egg sandwich. Sandwiched between two pieces of house made Lagana are two fried eggs slathered with Kafteri (a lightly spicy feta dip) and topped with a generous amount of fresh dill and parsley. The Kafteri brings the richness and some of that feta tang while the herbs cut through the other ingredients and linger on the palate. The Greek Lagana bread — basically an olive oil and sesame seed flavored flatbread — makes for a lightly chewy exterior. It’s also used on the rotating flatbread pizza specials and is available to buy separately to make your own sandwich creations at home. Moving down Monroe Avenue to Twelve Corners Plaza, we’re going to change our sandwich direction from the land of eggs to bagels. Of course bagels are great on their own when fresh out of the oven, balancing the line between a crispy exterior and a soft, chewy exterior, but bringing some simple prep and toppings into play turns them into great breakfast sandwiches. Unless you’re a complete breakfast neophyte, I don’t need to extoll the virtues of a toasted bagel smeared with cream cheese. I’m a recent convert and the “everything” bagel with garlic herb cream cheese from Bagel Land
(1896 Monroe Avenue) is what turned me into a fan. Its bagels strike the crispy-chewy balance well and they don’t skimp on the “everything” toppings. The garlic herb from Lighthouse Cream Cheese hits the creamy and savory notes for me, and if you like the sweet instead, there are some good selections there as well. We continue our breakfast sandwich trip on Monroe Avenue all the way down to the Village Bakery (villagebakeries.com, 5 State Street, Pittsford). Stepping up to the counter to order, you’re confronted with not only a wide variety of baked goods but a chalkboard full of egg-based breakfast sandwich combinations eight deep. Toppings all revolve around the relatively comfortable territory of egg-meat-cheese, but they elevate the situation by offering poached or whisked eggs and cheeses that range from brie to gruyere to creamy goat cheese. If you get there before the inevitable rush on the weekend, or on a quieter day, the rustic industrial feel and family style seating make this a great place to enjoy a pastry or breakfast sandwich and chat with friendly people.

CHANGING of the
Gallery guard At the beginning of its second hundred years, the Memorial Art Gallery considers its position in the Rochester community.

10 CITY JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 2014
In mid-July, Jonathan Binstock was named the next director of the University of Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery, following Grant Holcomb’s 29-year tenure. Over the years, Holcomb accomplished much for the art museum, seeing it through expanded facilities and collections while arts funding took serious hits. Now, during the first stages of the Memorial Art Gallery’s second hundred years, Binstock will bring his own navigational tools to the table, and is charged with meeting the challenges of funding and of engaging new audiences. The MAG stands at a pivotal moment. As one director leaves and another arrives, Rochester is presented an opportunity to assess the current trajectory of the institution. For 100 years, the Memorial Art Gallery has served as Rochester’s art museum and gallery. The institution safeguards a wide array of artifacts that help us reflect on crystallized moments in human history, and serves as one of the places that the public can interact with the art of regional, national, and international working artists. Holcomb says he believes that museums should “energize a community,” but balancing crowd-pleasing exhibitions with more challenging contemporary shows has always been difficult. In addition, he says that MAG’s audience is a broad one, including school children, college students, and elder patrons, all with different tastes and needs. “Part of the profile of the Memorial Art Gallery is that their collection is a teaching collection, because of the association with the university,” says sculptor Albert Paley. “So there’s a wide spectrum going from antique to contemporary work.” MAG’s current permanent collection includes about 12,437 objects, up from 8,816 at the end of 1985, the year Holcomb was hired.
Holcomb’s MAG Holcomb’s nearly three-decade tenure was far longer than that of many museum directors, and because of that, a tight-knit, family-like environment was cultivated. “We’re really losing the magnetic north of the gallery,” says Director of Exhibitions Marie Via, who has worked with Holcomb throughout his entire tenure. Few staff members at MAG have worked under any other director, she says, and because of this, some anticipate a major learning curve. Holcomb mentored his staff “to an amazing level of accomplishment,” says MAG Board of Managers Chair Jim Durfee. “The professional reputation of MAG’s Education, Curatorial, and Exhibitions departments has grown substantially under his leadership,” he says. Many of the staff who have worked with Holcomb for decades describe Holcomb as a boss who took unorthodox chances by offering opportunities for staff members to pursue their passions, while trusting their judgments. For example, when Holcomb arrived at MAG, Marie Via’s was the curatorial departments secretary, with no museum curatorial experience, having only run a small art gallery in a student union in Illinois. Holcomb commends Via for curating the “Extreme Materials” exhibit series, which he says pushed boundaries. When she originally pitched “Extreme Materials,” Via says Holcomb was hesitant, because “this was just something that was just a little bit off his radar, but he allowed himself to be convinced. And it turned out to be one of the most successful shows that we had ever done.” Durfee says that Holcomb has had a strong
knack for inspiring financial benefactors to recognize the unique value of art. In

conversation with Holcomb, it becomes evident that he has great passion for the sensitive, resilient, and intrepid nature of humankind, and his enthusiasm for the tangible artifacts of our cultural history is infectious. To Holcomb, financial sustainability depends not only upon a museum’s ability to express the importance of art to the patrons, but also to collaborate with the other cultural institutions. “We’re all in this together,” he says. Holcomb’s interest in combining forces with other cultural entities in Rochester has had a cross-disciplinary focus. “Working with the Eastman School of Music, the only functioning 17th-century Italian organ in North America was installed a few years ago in the Gallery’s Fountain Court, where concerts by Eastman students are performed weekly,” says Peter Brown, current chair of the Art Committee, and chair of the search committee that hired Holcomb in 1985. In addition, MAG has worked with collaboratively with Rochester Contemporary, Writers and Books, Rochester City Schools, and individual regional artists and writers. In 2001, Holcomb published “Voices in the Gallery,” an anthology that features responses to MAG art by 40 writers. “Grant’s message to all of us has always been: contact and connect,” says poet and SUNY Brockport professor William Heyen. “He has made writers and artists feel needed, and even useful — no small task.”
Expansion and Acquisition When Holcomb arrived at MAG, he felt the former exhibition program was too rigid, and too regional. Though he says the gallery has continued to support regional artists to a significant extent, the staff was looking to include a wider range of art — historic to contemporary, regional to national, and if possible, international. Within Holcomb’s first two years, MAG’s temporary exhibition program broadened to reflect this desire. Which is not to say that the MAG has turned its back on local and regional art. In fact, under Holcomb, the MAG made a commitment to the acquisition of craft art and has held craft-centric exhibitions — such as “Head, Heart and Hand: Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters” (1994), “White House Collection of American Crafts” exhibition (1995), and the upcoming Wayne Higby exhibition, which is on the exhibition schedule for 2015 — in order to reflect and emphasize the importance of historic and contemporary craft design in Western New York. The Rochester area is rich with craft institutions and artists working in crafts. The region features the RIT School for American Craft, the historic Roycrofters’ Guild as well as the current Roycroft Renaissance artisans, and some of the most important craft artists in the nation, and even the world, Holcomb says. Work by regional craft greats like
Wendell Castle, Albert Paley, and Nancy Jurs are included in MAG’s collection. The classic Rochester-Finger Lakes juried exhibit was switched from an annual to every other year in order to make room for the invitational Biennial — the latest of which opened July 6 — which recognizes half a dozen regional artists in what is essentially six focused, simultaneous shows. One of Holcomb’s final challenges at
the Memorial Art Gallery was deciding how to celebrate MAG’s centennial year. There was a wealth of ideas, he says, but as always, a limited purse. A new wing dedicated to contemporary craft, art, and design exhibitions was considered, but it was deemed unsustainable, Holcomb says. “We talked about a new education wing, on the north side,” he says. “We talked about a new entrance to the gallery, closer to the 1913 building. At the same time, we were developing an idea for the Centennial Sculpture Park.” In the end, it was decided that MAG would extend the museum beyond its walls by taking down the wrought-iron fence that ringed the campus — a significant decision which has really transformed the campus into a well-used urban park — and would commission three or four artists for major outdoor sculptural works. Holcomb also sought the support of sister arts organizations, including the commissioning of a major work by composer Jeff Tyzik,
based upon pieces chosen by Tyzik from the museum’s collection, and performed by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Major sculptures commissioned for the Centennial Sculpture Garden include the whimsical seating and lighting combination, “Unicorn Family” by Wendell Castle, the prismatic “Soliloquy” sculpture by Albert Paley, New York Citybased artist Jackie Ferrara’s “Marking Crossways,” and the massive limestone and bronze “Creation Myth” sculptural installation and sprawling amphitheater by New York-based sculptor Tom Otterness. MAG was met with some strong opposition to the Otterness commission, given the ugly mark left on the artist’s career when in 1977 he created “Shot Dog Film,” in which he killed his dog. A smaller, quieter contingency of people simply didn’t appreciate the grounds-dominating work based on aesthetic tastes. “The first three to five months was not fun,” Holcomb says. Staff members received concerned, angry, and at times threatening phone calls and messages. Petitions and calls to boycott the MAG were passed around, and about two dozen people dropped their membership. “The controversy surrounding the Otterness work in the sculpture park was a difficult time for everyone associated with the MAG,” says Theresa Mazzullo, who leads the continues on page 12 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

MAG volunteer board. “Grant demonstrated his leadership by reaching out to and showing genuine empathy for the detractors, which resulted in a peaceful compromise.” “In the end, I think it made the institution stronger,” Holcomb says. “It gave the board and the staff a challenging issue to deal with in a straightforward way, by talking with the community as best as you can.”
Only connect Holcomb says that his philosophy regarding the role of the museum hasn’t really changed since he arrived at the MAG. “I really believed in the power of art, and I still do,” he says. “Art matters. It matters to a 3 or 4 or 5-yearold kid who comes in, and his imagination is lit. We’ve seen it.” The beneficial impact of art is proved also through MAG’s Art Education Department’s “Meet Me at the MAG programming,” conducted in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association of Rochester. Through this program, individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and their care partners are encouraged to explore memories and feelings triggered by artworks while they are guided by gallery docents through the exhibits and permanent collections. As many as seven Family Days — which focus on exploring various cultural heritages 12 CITY JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 2014
through performances, activities, and connections with MAG’s collections — have been held annually, drawing thousands of visitors to the gallery. Diversity is also represented through acquisitions of work by Native American artists, African-American artists, Latino artists, and VietnameseAmerican artists. Holcomb has strived to nurture a global, encyclopedic mission for the collection, reflecting the histories of the ancient and contemporary world, he says. The gallery has held exhibitions of Latin American art in exhibitions like “TRANSactions: Contemporary Latino Art” (2007); Native American Art with “Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3” (2012); and African-American art in “Jacob Lawrence: Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman Series of Narrative Paintings” (1991) and Willie Cole’s “Anxious Objects” (2007), the latter of which explored identity, race relations, consumerism, and the environment.
Enduring challenges For arts institutions, finances and engagement of the community are locked in an infinite loop. When Holcomb arrived in Rochester in 1985, Kodak had more than 60,000 employees. By 2013, the local number was down to about 2,300 employees. Now,
MAG doesn’t have support from some major corporations who were annual supporters of the gallery in the past, Holcomb says. Because of this downturn in corporate support, MAG is no longer able to consider high-profile, high-price-tag, and typically big-draw exhibitions, such as the shows MAG hosted featuring Maxfield Parrish (2000), Edgar Degas (2002), Augustus Saint-Gaudens (2004), Georgia O’Keeffe (2006), and American Impressionism (2008). “We are unable to get the level of funding today that we received 10 to 20 years ago,” Holcomb says. But that’s the nature of the business world in Rochester, which has “moved from four to five major corporations to 20 or 30 smaller businesses that are doing well, but it’s a different climate.” Holcomb says that the New York State Council on the Arts and Monroe County have both been steady supporters, and that increasing revenue through memberships and by renting space out for events such as weddings has been crucial. “We’ve touched this issue,” he says, “but we haven’t yet solved it.” Holcomb says that endowment, from which the gallery draws its acquisitions funding, has been critical. In the 1985-86 fiscal year, the gallery’s total income was shy of $1.8 million, 13 percent of which came
Art authorities speak “What I’d really like to see from the institution is a greater emphasis on the current art world,” says art appraiser and print collector Roslyn Goldman. “I’d love to see more in-depth exhibitions, speakers, and a general attention to what’s happening in the larger international art scene, which is very exciting.” Goldman recently attended and was inspired by a lecture given in New York City by innovative street artist Swoon, who currently has a solo installation, “Submerged Motherlands,” at Brooklyn Museum. “I think Rochester needs exposure to new art, because we have a lot of young artists in town, and they need that sort of education,” she says. The strength in embracing a contemporary focus is something that will be a key initiative under new leadership. Holcomb says that during his tenure, contemporary art has been a focus, but that the gallery has chosen to present it through exhibitions selectively, interspersed with historic-focused shows so that it could provide a breadth of exhibitions that would appeal to different tastes. Artist, educator, and writer Ron Netsky commends Holcomb for “excellent acquisitions,” such as “The Printseller’s Window” by Walter Goodman — which the National Gallery asked to borrow

region; many cultural institutions are suffering or spiraling toward disaster. Take, for example, the Delaware Museum of Art, which recently auctioned off one of its most famous and prized Pre-Raphaelite paintings in order to pay its bills. In late June, that museum lost its accreditation and ability to receive loaned works from many other museums. Holcomb says that private philanthropy has helped create important, interactive additions to the museum, such as the Gill Discovery Center. This small space has a big impact in terms of education, interaction, and the showcasing of recent acquisitions in addition to objects on long-term loan from other institutions, he says. Until recently, the space hosted the ancient Egyptian coffins of Pa-debehu-Aset, acquired under Holcomb, and currently hosts the “Renaissance Remix” exhibition.
FARM RAISED LITTLENECKS
The financial stress is not unique to this
immediately after MAG acquired it — and “Autumn Brook” by George Bellows. Both artists are late-19th, early-20th century artists. “It’s much more difficult to acquire contemporary work because by definition, it hasn’t withstood the test of time,” Netsky says. Marjorie Searle believes that a key element to MAG’s future is re-developing the use around the gallery’s encyclopedic collection, and work to draw visitors who will use the gallery’s offerings in unique ways, such as research projects. Netsky believes that the Gallery should originate more of its exhibitions, when possible. Albert Paley echoes this sentiment, stating that originating shows from MAG’s collection that will then then travel to other institutions extends the profile of the museum beyond its regional context. “Obviously, that has to do with financing,” Paley says, which is always a balancing act, “but that unique contribution would be admirable.”
from endowments. The 2011-2013 reports show that MAG’s total income was up to nearly $5.5 million, with 44 percent from endowment. About $15.5 million toward an $18.4 million fundraising goal, established four years ago, has been raised, which includes $10 million for endowment.

Moving Forward New director Jonathan Binstock, who will take over at MAG by September, waxed enthusiastic about the encyclopedic mission of the collection during the formal presentation of his selection. But considering his background, he will almost certainly bring the much more contemporary focus that some members of the Rochester arts community are craving. Binstock has more than a decade of curatorial experience at major American museums, including his seven years as curator of contemporary art at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Since 2007, he served as senior vice president and specialist in post-World War II and contemporary art for Citi Private Bank Art Advisory & Finance, working mainly as an advisor to private art collectors, and was based in New York City. Binstock’s expertise and experience in navigating the financial world are promising qualities for his role as fundraiser and acquisition developer, and his hiring continues what seems to be a local trend developing regarding Rochester and a contemporary focus — in 2012, contemporary-focused Bruce Barnes was named director of George Eastman House. When asked about specific plans and hopes he has for his leadership at MAG, Binstock was careful and vague, as these things go, but stated that he looks forward to making the Memorial Art Gallery the center for conversation for creativity.

[ REVIEW ] BY ROMAN DIVEZUR
Ukraine-born front man Eugene Hütz and his multicultural crew played to a crowded Main Street Armory, Saturday night, when Gogol Bordello made its Rochester debut — and the Gypsy punk band proved why it is one of the most celebrated concert experiences in all the land. Opening act Man Man started the festivities. Lead singer-pianist Honus Honus resembled the ghost of Lester Bangs as he stood on a pedestal with a sparkling hooded cape and tie-died pants for the sinistersounding opening number, “End Boss.” But once he got down to business on the piano, that’s when things started to get weird. The quartet’s sound was cosmic, trippy, catchy, and experimental at times — imagine a strange combination of zombies, Tom Waits, a drummer named Pow Pow, and lots of magic mushrooms. Man Man’s set ended when the last chord played was one banged out by Honus Honus’ butt. Gogol Bordello’s anticipated set began inconspicuously when lead singer-guitarist Eugene Hutz walked onto the stage, took a sip from a wine bottle, and asked the audience “What’s up, Rochester?” Hutz launched into “Illumination” a tune

that picked up steam once the rest of his bandmates filed out and joined in. Gogol Bordello’s second song, “Ultimate,” established the mood for the rest of the evening. It was sweaty, charged up, and pretty much mind blowing as the band took instruments that you would expect at a Russian wedding and made it all sound transformational. The glue that held Gogol Bordello together was Hutz’s acoustic guitar. Likewise, Hutz was the sinewy pied piper of an outfit that whipped the crowd into frenzy and brought it back down. When the group blended elements of Latin music, the audience responded by going bananas during numbers including “Immigraniada.” Of course, there was never a dull moment on the floor when a dose of Gypsy punk was added to an already break-neck mix of musical genres. Among the highlights of the show was, of course, “Start Wearing Purple,” a simple tune fueled by embellishments from violinist Sergey Ryabtsev that caused nearly everyone in the packed room to sing along and jump around. More importantly, there were smiles on people’s faces.

John Sacheli has always wanted to be Genesee Johnny. He’s bopped around Rochester for the past 15 years in various bands — most notably the song-centric group, The Spirit of Ontario — but the man’s resume reads more like a detour until Sacheli began to play the blues. The Spirit of Ontario went down in flames, along with his marriage, and Sacheli started fooling around with bluegrass along with bassist Ryan Griffith. “Ryan and I started playing together as a duo two years ago,” Sacheli says. “And we got like five tunes together. There was a Grateful Dead song, a Crosby, Stills and Nash song, some early
rock ‘n’ roll, a Buddy Guy song…” It was Buddy’s blues that really sunk in. The blues thing really worked. Sacheli was jazzed … or rather, blues’d. “We were like ‘Wow,’” he says. “‘That really connected. We should pursue this blues thing.’ So finally I got to play the blues. Every band I was in, the guys always bitched if it got too bluesy. ‘Because we’re rock’ they’d say.’” But Sacheli needed to be honest with himself. It’s like the lyric in his song “Dirty Secrets”: “You can’t please nobody, if you can’t please yourself.” Soon the band got fleshed out with the addition of drummer Joe Myers and utility man (who has since split from the group) Mike Pavone. Sacheli had dipped his toes in bluegrass waters, but took the plunge when it came to Delta-inspired blues. He credits local slide blues guitar aficionado Gordon Munding. “Thanks to Gordon Munding, I started getting into resonator guitars, open tunings, learning slide,” Sacheli says. “Gordon was really supportive of us, helping get us some shows at The Beale, and it took off from there.”
When Munding needed a break from hosting the Son House night/open blues jam at The Beale, the torch was passed to Genesee Johnny & the River Rats. Besides the difficulty in learning the style, Sacheli is keen on avoiding gentrification. In other words, “Not sounding like a white kid playing the blues,” he says. Not to worry, Sacheli’s treatment of the blues is as reverential as it is referential. No, he doesn’t sound like Howlin’ Wolf, but he does sound natural and at home singing and playing the blues. He is an honest artist. The man tells it true, even in the face of the blues’ liberal sharing policy, which Sacheli describes as “Whatever riff and licks you can steal and sneak in.” Genesee Johnny & the River Rats recently snuck into the studio with knob-twiddler Gary Holt in Mt. Morris, emerging a few days later with the band’s first 15-track long-playing lacquer cracker “National Grid.” The sound is bluestastic and not unlike RL sideman Kenny Brown’s take on the blues, with a dash of John Prine Americana thrown in. The guitar is a slippery and sinister slither of slide-borne evil over the band’s tasty grooves. It’s all original except for two cuts from Son House and one from Muddy Waters. The band shines particularly when it leans into its own stuff, especially Sacheli’s seasoned voice when it’s his story being told. The band recorded live in the studio to preserve the rhythmic variables synonymous with the human condition; imperfections captured perfectly. Sacheli elucidates: “Stuff speeds up, stuff slows down,” he says with a grin. “It’s raw and I love it.” Genesee Johnny and the River Rats would like to hit stages a little further out in the region, preaching the blues to blues fans as well as jaded rock ‘n’ rollers. “At the root level,” Sacheli says. “If you’re into rock music, it’s all there. It’s that basic raw element, that driving backbeat. And no matter what genre you’re into, that’s in there somewhere.” However, touring may have to simmer on the back burner a spell as Sacheli and his wife are expecting a visit from the stork next week. So besides being a dad, the daddy-o of the dobro, gets his wish. “It’s really cool to finally be doing what I’ve always wanted to do,” he says. “I’ve always wanted to be Genesee Johnny.”

All I have to do is list the borderline royal pedigree in this outfit, right? I mean, c’mon there’s Clem Burke (Blondie and the Empty Hearts with Rochester’s Andy Babiuk), Keith Streng (Fleshtones), Eddie Munoz (Plimsouls), and Josh Kantor (The Baseball Project). The band’s 2013 “Now Hear This” was produced by Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey. This is kind of a who’s who in jangly pop-rock and one of those all-star collabs that actually works. (Do you hear me Willie and the Poor Boys?) Split Squad plays Saturday, August 2, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9:30 p.m. $10.

HIP-HOP | LIL DURK
At 21 years old and with a handful of impressive mixtapes to his name, Lil Durk made XXL Magazine’s 2014 Freshman Class earlier this year — along with fellow up-andcomers Kevin Gates, Chance the Rapper, and Vic Mensa. Raised on Chicago’s South Side, Lil Durk has come out in the last three years as a stand-out of the area’s drill scene — trap-influenced beats overlaid with often gritty lyrics that attest to the violence happening in the area. For some time, Durk was well-known in Chicago, but lagged behind on a national level. It seems like 2014 has already been the year he’s beginning to break out, though, and he still has a new mixtape and full-length album planned for later this year. Lil Durk will perform with Migos on Saturday, August 2, at the Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main Street. 7 p.m. $15-$60. Mainstreetarmory.com; Facebook.com/lildurk. — BY JAKE CLAPP R.E.A.L..

Bridging musical gaps Skaneateles Festival WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, THROUGH SATURDAY, AUGUST 30 VARIOUS LOCATIONS IN SKANEATELES, NEW YORK COMPLETE PROGRAM AND TICKET INFORMATION AT SKANFEST.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
The combination of a relaxed, summery atmosphere and lofty musical artistry is a potent one. As western New York’s summer chamber music festivals attest, it is also a popular one. One summer music festival preceded the others: The Skaneateles Festival, which held its first program in 1980, is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2014, and has reinvented itself a few times in the intervening years. Picturesquely placed on a lake and still full of 19th- and early-20th-century charm, Skaneateles is the perfect example of an upstate New York summer town, and the Skaneateles Festival is the model of an ambitious summer music festival. It takes place over four weeks in August (starting this year on Wednesday, August 6), each week with its own programming theme. Concerts take place in local churches and other venues in or near town; the festival traditionally winds up with a larger-scale outdoor concert at Brook Farm, whose large porch can accommodate a small orchestra and whose lawn can accommodate a large audience. In its three and a half decades, Skaneateles has caught a few rising musical stars on their way to bigger things. For example, the popular violinist Hilary Hahn has been a frequent Festival performer since she was a teenager. 20 CITY JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 2014
But it is also a mecca for regional musicians. Its artistic directors since 2005 have been the Eastman School’s Elinor Freer and David Ying, and visitors from Rochester will recognize many other familiar faces from the Eastman School of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra: violists Phillip Ying and Melissa Matson, cellists Steven Doane and Rosemary Elliott, flutist Joanna Bassett, among others. Like such other venerable summer festivals as Mostly Mozart and Glimmerglass, the Skaneateles Festival has learned the value of reinventing itself in middle age, and offering interesting innovative programming. The classical music world, and music consumption, has changed radically since 1980, and the Skaneateles Festival has kept up with the developments. Younger musicians have long, long playlists, and their genre-busting concert programming choices (and their youthful rebellious streaks) reflect that. It’s no longer rare to see, say, a string quartet play Beethoven or Bartók and follow it up with a tune by Ellington, Hendrix, Zappa, the theme from “Game of Thrones,” or a traditional Korean song. It’s also not unusual for these groups to engage the audience directly, talking about the music or about themselves. Even the 2014 festival’s senior guest ensemble, the venerable Shanghai Quartet, which formed in 1983 and has performed all over the world, will offer an informal, interactive “FamilyFest” program on August 13. This year, Skaneateles offers two of the most prominent of these new-style chamber ensembles: the “amplified chamber band” Fireworks Ensemble (with actual fireworks after their show) and Time for Three. And this year, the Festival also looks to the East for inspiration: music inspired by the
traditional Gypsy music of Eastern Europe, and traditional East Asian musical elements each get their own week of exploration. For its first week — titled “Many Happy Returns!” — the festival glances backward, inviting musicians who performed frequently in the festival’s early years. Solid, 19th-century European chamber music repertoire by Schumann, Brahms, and the boys sets the tone, at least until the final concert, which features the Fireworks Ensemble in its Skaneateles debut. The Skaneateles Festival pulls out the multicultural stops for its middle weeks. “East Meets West,” in the second week, features music fusing traditional Asian musical elements with Western art by two experts in the genre: the Shanghai Quartet, whose repertoire ranges from the complete Beethoven quartets to contemporary Chinese-American composers, and Music from China, a group that combines traditional Chinese instruments with modern instruments, all performed by native Chinese musicians. The East-West influence is nothing new, of course: European composers like RimskyKorsakov and Maurice Ravel were powerfully influenced by the sounds, and the idea, of the “mysterious East” — most obvious, in Ravel’s case, in his song cycle “Shéhérazade,” a featured work on one of this week’s concerts. You can also hear some of the sounds that did the influencing. In the multicultural 21st century, Western audiences are better prepared to take their Central and East Asian music neat, and you can hear some examples of the real thing performed by Music from China, as well as highly regarded contemporary composers like Chen Yi and Zhou Long. It’s a cliché to describe Gypsy music as vibrant and soulful, passionate and temperamental. Then again, it is all those things, and it has been an energizing influence on classical music since the 18th century — from Haydn movements marked all’Ungherese, “in the Hungarian style,” to Liszt’s glittery Hungarian Rhapsodies for piano, to more authentic evocations by Kodály, Bartók, and Osvaldo Golijov, all of which can be heard during the third week of the festival. Ravel (who had a lot of musical influences) turns up again, as the composer of “Tzigane”, a florid “Gypsy rhapsody” for violin and piano. The final week is usually the most festive of the four, and this year’s finale brings still more happy returns in the form of ensembles who have performed there previously. The conductorless East Coast Chamber Orchestra, performs a favorite, Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings,” as well as a string-orchestra arrangement of a great string quartet, Janacek’s First. For Labor Day weekend, Time for Three shake the porch at Brook Farm. This trio consists of violinists Zach De Pue and Nick Kendall and double bassist Ranaan Meyer. Impressively, their program list consists of 42 pieces, from J.S. Bach to Katy Perry — a music festival in a nutshell.

ART | FIRST FRIDAY
FESTIVAL | PARK AVENUE FESTIVAL
FAMILY | LAURA INGALLS WILDER DAYS
The evening of Friday, August 1, loads of artists, galleries, and alternative spaces will host open studios, and receptions for new or current shows. Here are a few key picks, but for a full list, visit firstfridayrochester.org and check out the art openings section of City’s calendar in this issue or at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
On Saturday, August 2, and Sunday, August 3, the 37th Annual Park Avenue Summer Art Festival will fill the Park Avenue neighborhood with arts, crafts, and music. The event, hosted by the Park Avenue Merchants Association, will feature hundreds of local artists, as well as vendors from across the U.S. and Canada. These artisans will sell pieces created in a variety of mediums including pottery, painting, and photographs, and may well be seen creating new works at their booths during the festival. More than 60 musical groups will perform at multiple stages in the area, and local vendors will offer a variety of food for purchase.
Many people know, and love, Laura Ingalls Wilder for her “Little House” series of young adult books, but what’s often glossed over are her strong ties to New York. Her husband, Almanzo Wilder, was born near Malone, New York, and her father, Charles Ingalls, was born in Cuba, New York. This summer, the Genesee Country Village and Museum is celebrating Laura Ingalls Wilder’s work and connection to our neck of the woods with its Laura Ingalls Wilder Days. The event includes a presentation and autograph session from Melissa Sue Anderson (pictured), known for playing Mary Ingalls on the popular television adaptation of “Little House on the Prairie,” a handkerchief doll making workshop, butter churning, bread kneading, and more.
Rochester Contemporary Art Center (137 East Avenue) will host a reception for 2014’s iteration of the annual “State of the City” series (pictured). This year’s exhibit features monumental installations by Ron Klein of Philadelphia and The Shua Group of Jersey City, each encouraging us to consider consumption and waste in a contemporary environment. The reception will be held 6 to 10 p.m. and admission is $1 (free to members). The show continues through September 27, and an artists’ talk will be held Saturday, August 2, at 1 p.m. For more information, call 461-2222 or visit rochestercontemporary.org. Cat Clay (Studio #242, Hungerford Building, 1115 East Main Street) will present “Fear Not: They Come in Peace,” a showing of jellyfish and other imaginings by Laura Sherwood. These bits of fiber art and embroidery will be joined by Clifton Wood’s ceramic offerings, many of which include delightful and cultish pop cultural references, as one in a series of Pop Up Roc one-night-only First Friday exhibits. The opening and closing party will be held from 5 to 9 p.m., and admission is free.

FESTIVALS | CULTURAL FESTIVALS
SPECIAL EVENT | CRAFT BEER #FLXPERIENCE WEEK
THEATER | “TICK, TICK … BOOM!”
Rochester’s glowing cultural diversity is something its residents should be proud of. The Rochester-area is home to no shortage of top-notch restaurants, centers, and festivals celebrating the region’s various cultures. Next week, Rochester will host not one, but four individual cultural festivals.
The Finger Lakes area is quickly becoming an important home for craft breweries. The Finger Lakes Visitors Connection will celebrate the thriving industry with a week of beer-centric events.
Before Jonathan Larson wrote “Rent,” he wrote and performed a “rock monologue” called “Tick, Tick … BOOM!” first presented Off-Off Broadway in 1990. The huge success of “Rent” came soon afterward, but Larson never lived to see it. Ironically, “Tick, Tick … BOOM!” dramatizes Larson’s own apprehensions about turning 30 with little to show for it artistically or professionally — the ticking sound he hears is time running out. That knowledge adds to the poignancy of this piece, which was revised as a three-character musical in 2001 and has been a staple of smaller theaters ever since. OFC Creations gives it a try this weekend with three local musical-theater stalwarts in the leads: Carl Del Buono as Jon(athan), Alec Powell as his best friend Michael, and Brynn (Lucas) Tyszka as his girlfriend Susan.
The Polish Arts Festival, which takes place Friday, August 1, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday, August 2, 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., at St. Stanislaus Church (1150 Hudson Avenue), offers all things Polish, from pierogi to polka, and is completely free. For more information, visit polishartsfest.org. The 45th Annual Puerto Rican Festival (pictured) takes place Friday, August 1, and Saturday, August 2, 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday, August 3, 12 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Frontier Field (333 North Plymouth Avenue). The festival features live performances from Toby Love, Zion y Lennox, Grupo Mania, Domingo Quinones, and Tito Nieves, and the SSGT Javier Ortiz Memorial 5k Race and Fitness Walk.

It only happens once a year “The Purge: Anarchy”
(R), DIRECTED BY JAMES DEMONACO NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
In a time when some politicians now kick off their campaigns in gun shops, armed yokels wave the Confederate flag outside the White House, a candidate in the South hosts target practice with President Obama’s face for a bull’s eye, a movie like “The Purge: Anarchy” must seem a gift from God to members of the NRA. Although a dystopian commentary on contemporary trends, the way we live now, the picture, sadly, may inspire more of

those massacres that routinely stain the image of America around the world. All those people who constantly mutter about the government “taking away our guns” should delight in the premise of the new picture, which closely resembles its predecessor. In the year 2023, a pious right-wing party, the New Founding Fathers, controls the country; their policies result in drastically lower levels of unemployment, poverty, and crime: what’s not to like? The single cause of those decreases is the Purge, an annual night of cathartic violence, accompanied by prayer, permitting the citizens to commit any crimes, including murder, without fear of punishment. In combining three separate stories into one narrative, the new “Purge” adds some greater depth and dimension to the original concept. One family, Eva (Carmen Ejogo) and her daughter Cali (Zoe Soul), falls into the hands of a uniformed, apparently official group that travels in semi-trailers, armed with cannons and machine guns, annihilating anyone they encounter;

WEEKEND PLANNER A HANDFUL OF AWESOME THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND 24 CITY JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 2014
the second, a young married couple, played by Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez, flee a gang of motorcyclists wearing frightening masks. More or less accidentally, a single, well-armed individual called Sarge (Frank Grillo) bent on his own particular revenge, rescues the others and unites them under his leadership. The plot settles into a familiar perilous journey through the deserted streets of an unnamed city. Sarge and his companions, stalked relentlessly by the bikers, the uniformed groups, and random individuals, encounter and escape a number of dangerous situations, including a shocking slaughter within the home of a hospitable family who initially save the desperate group; the incident, rising out of sibling anger and jealousy, indicates that the Purge encourages powerful emotions to explode into killing, a logical extension of the familiar subject of domestic violence. Throughout the action the picture suggests
further meanings to the Purge, involving some unpleasant facts about social and economic class. Poverty and unemployment drop because the legal killers, apparently assisted by the government, choose their targets among the poor, while the wealthy, locked behind their secure defenses, pay a dying man for the privilege of killing him, after uttering the special prayer of course, in the safety of their own homes. In a posh banquet hall elegantly dressed men and women bid for the privilege of

The girl with kaleidoscope eyes “Lucy” (R), DIRECTED BY LUC BESSON NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
hunting down a group of captured victims with an array of high-class weaponry... Despite its almost rhythmic series of dangerous encounters, shootouts, and narrow escapes, the script indulges in some of the stock material of any Hollywood thriller. Its conclusion combines a couple of significant revelations with a hint of sentimental acceptance and closure. The final shocks may actually surprise more than the events that constitute the major substance of the picture. Though stretching plausibility quite a bit, the initial concept, which I think first appeared in an episode of the original “Star Trek” series, follows a reasonably credible line of extrapolation. The numerous instances of massacres, which now enjoy their own genres — mall shootings, school shootings, workplace shootings, college shootings, etc. — certainly provide a reasonable basis for the picture. The contemporary obsession with firearms and gun rights — every boy should have his own bazooka — along with the incessant frenzy of hatred whipped up by right-wing commentators, the tragic paradox of a blatant and even permitted racism motivated by the election of Barack Obama, create a perfectly understandable contest for the otherwise exaggerated subject of “The Purge.” The initial movie earned 10 times its cost at the box office, an obvious motive for a sequel; another addition to the series probably will follow. And why not? We all need our weapons to fight off whatever enemy we think is out there, especially the government, which wants to take away our guns. Lock and load, citizens, they’re after you.
Despite its persistence, the theory that human beings use only 10 percent of their brain’s capacity has long since been proven false — the scientific community’s equivalent of an urban legend — but that hasn’t stopped storytellers from exploiting the way the myth has seeped into the public consciousness. The widespread fallacy is an easy storytelling device to make their tales appear to be weighted more heavily on the side of science than fiction. The latest artist to utilize this idea is French director Luc Besson (“La Femme Nikita,” “The Fifth Element”) in his stylish, gleefully silly sci-fi action thriller, “Lucy.” Scarlett Johansson stars as the titular Lucy, an American grad student living in Taipei. As the movie opens, she’s being coerced by her shady new boyfriend to deliver a locked suitcase to a hotel where a cold-blooded Korean gangster named Mr. Jang (Choi Min-sik, of Park Chan-wook’s “Oldboy”) awaits its arrival. Before you can say “poor life choices,” the boyfriend has been shot dead and

poor Lucy is strong-armed by thugs and brought up to Jang’s suite. She’s to be used as a mule to transport the contents of the suitcase, a experimental new designer drug called CPH4, which promises to unlock those previously untapped portions of our mind and ostensibly give the user one hell of a high along the way. But almost immediately the bag containing the CPH4 inside her bursts, giving her an extreme overdose of the drug. And that’s when “Lucy” really starts to get nuts. As the chemical floods her body, it gives Lucy progressively more control of her brain (title cards appear throughout the film letting us know exactly what percentage Lucy has gained access to), resulting in the development of superhuman powers. The rationale Besson uses comes from the pseudoscience spouted by Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman), the neuroscientist whom Lucy contacts to learn about what fate might await her. Dolphins utilize 20 percent of their brain, he explains, and that extra oomph gives them sonar capabilities. He hypothesizes that with increased cerebral activity, humans might obtain similar skills. This soon proves true, as Lucy gradually gains the ability to control every cell in her body, then other people, electronics, and eventually all of time and space itself. Her powers are so vaguely defined, with new abilities developing so rapidly it’s impossible to keep up as she transitions from party girl to invincible force of nature. Johansson’s performance as Lucy is an interesting synthesis of the characters she’s portrayed in “Her” and “Under the Skin,” with a bit of Black Widow thrown in for good measure. Lucy demonstrates a Samantha-like eagerness to expand her mind beyond its established limits, but like the alien being in “Under the Skin,” her journey away from humanity
renders her increasingly detached and emotionless. At a certain point she realizes that the drug’s effects will eventually kill her, but as Lucy whizzes her way toward full transcendence, that becomes less of a pressing concern to her. Jang and his lackeys do chase after her, but it’s difficult to get too worried about the well-being of a godlike superhero. Without any sort of stakes, it becomes difficult to empathize with such a cold protagonist. “Skin” director Jonathan Glazer managed it in his film, but Besson doesn’t have the same skill with character. What he does have is a brilliant mind for action. Besson is more interested in telling his pulpy tale through kinetically staged action, colorful cinematography (from frequent DP, Thierry Arbogast) and trippy imagery. To put it bluntly, the plot of “Lucy” is completely stupid. It doesn’t make a lick of sense if you take even a moment to think about anything that’s happening, but Besson is a smart enough filmmaker to keep things moving fast enough that you never have the chance. As with Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer,” there’s a point where you realize that the plot isn’t going to hold up to scrutiny, so just accept it, sit back, and enjoy the ride. While the action is great, the director is somewhat less successful when he tries to marry those images with philosophical mumbo jumbo about the meaning of time, evolution, and whether we as a species have truly lived up to our potential. These stabs at profundity are intended to give the film an appearance of depth, but more often resemble what might have happened if Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” suffered a severe head injury while overdosing on psychotropic drugs. But as long as it’s bombarding us with bright colors, violent shootouts, elaborate car chases and effects, “Lucy” is quite a rush.

471 Woodbine Avenue 471 Woodbine sits solidly at the top of a small rise behind a strikingly landscaped foundation garden. The Tudor Revival style home was built in 1927 and has the historic features to prove it. An arched hood over the door seems to say, “Do come in.” A small vestibule with a coat closet leads to the main hallway. On the left enter the living room through leaded glass French doors, which can shut out the noise of comings and goings in the hallway. Light streams into the room through the bay window, providing extra space and inviting restful contemplation or quiet conversation. During the winter months the wood burning fireplace draws family and guests into the circle of flickering firelight. Another French door leads to the sunroom with windows on three sides. Here you could begin your day with a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise. The dining room offers a view of the private fencedin backyard through another bay window. Throughout, door and window casings are natural, unpainted wood and floors have the original narrow boards. The small kitchen has been updated with simple wood cabinets, a tile backsplash and a ceramic floor. A small walkin pantry provides extra storage space. Upstairs, three bedrooms with closets and a new bathroom surround a short hall with a large linen closet. The third floor attic space has been transformed into a spacious retreat with natural light streaming in from the front dormer, a back window and a skylight. A
half bath completes the space, which could become a large master bedroom, a spacious den/office or a playroom for the younger family members. Extra storage is found under the eaves and other nooks and crannies behind the walls. Back downstairs, step outside into the backyard. A tall wooden fence surrounds a thoughtfully landscaped area. The murmur from a small waterfall and the shadows from the tall trees produce a feeling of calm and beauty, detached from the rest of the world. But there is a surrounding neighborhood with engaged residents and an active neighborhood organization. The 19th Ward Community Association aims to preserve the residential character of the historic 19th Ward. Its mission is to “create, foster and maintain a multi-racial community where individual and cultural differences are celebrated and where people share a sense of community.” For a description of the Association’s activities and events see www.19wca.org. Located in the historic Sibley Tract, 741 Woodbine qualifies for the University of Rochester Home Owners Incentive Program for employees. To see this 1,852 square foot gem, which is listed at $99,900, contact Ginny Hurlbutt at 585-3814400 x230 or firstname.lastname@example.org. by Lea Kemp Lea is Librarian/Archivist at Rochester Museum & Science Center.

Fun [ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will attract romantic attention easily this week. Join a dating service or make a point to network with people who enjoy the same things you do, and you will hook up with someone who can and will change your life. Be brave and make the first move. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Let friendship lead the way. Expecting too much too fast will lead nowhere fast. Someone will lead you on if you put too much pressure on him or her to become involved. Strive for truth and honesty, not fiction and fantasy, if you want to achieve personal happiness. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You won’t have any trouble finding love and romance. There will be plenty of potential suitors swimming around you. Your flirtatious ways will send a positive signal to someone who is capable of holding your interest. Set plans to go on an adventure, and it will lead to love. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love is closer to home than you realize. Look around you, and you will notice someone admiring you from a distance. Sometimes we do not see what’s right in front of us. Let your intuition lead the way;
before you know it, love will emerge. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will present an exciting picture to anyone watching you from the sidelines. It will be easy for you to dazzle and invite potential interest, but before you decide to get involved, consider your motives. Whoever you attract will not be looking for a one-night stand. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Use your intelligence when it comes to love, and you’ll avoid letting chemistry lead you down the wrong path. Take time to discover more about the person who catches your eye before deciding to move forward, taking physical action. Be sure to look before you leap. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will have plenty of suitors this week. Holding on to someone’s interest will not be as easy. Taking a mysterious approach to the way you reveal who you are and what you have to offer will work best as long as you aren’t misleading. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Choose your words and your actions carefully and follow through with whatever you say you will do. Love will require balance, equality and integrity if you hope to keep the playing field even and the interest growing. Welcome a
chance to get involved in an unconventional romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will have all the right moves to impress and reel in any love interest you have this week, but the urge to overspend will lead to a false impression that will cause whoever you attract to back away quickly when the cash runs out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Openly show what you have to offer, and you will attract a serious-minded partner who is looking for a similar lifestyle. Someone who shares your professional passion and is as goal-oriented as you will allow you to follow your dream and achieve personal contentment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your high energy and innovative way of finding solutions and ways to make your downtime exciting will be enough to attract someone who has just as much desire to experiment with different romantic lifestyles as you. Make your move and take this union to the next level. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your likes and dislikes will be easily detected when it comes to love and romance. Wear your heart on your sleeve, and you will attract someone equally as eager to work hard to build a secure and long-lasting relationship. A commitment is apparent, as is greater happiness.
