The city’s present, future, past through art Like countless other post-industrial cities suffering from ongoing decline, Rochester has a bit of an identity crisis. Meaning, the city is limping along economically, with seemingly very little vision for our current state, let alone our future, while our humiliating mountain of failed projects keeps rising. Segregation along race and poverty lines is as sharply defined as the Inner Loop’s boundaries, and a slowing of the mass exodus, so-called the “brain drain” is nowhere in sight. “Transitions-Rochester,” a collaborative exhibit and series of events held at three local cultural institutions, explores how our city is
dealing with its transitional period, and seeks to open up discussion about what future Rochester might be shifting toward. It remains to be seen if we will pull together to improve the quality of life for all Rochester residents, revitalize the city center, and invent a future for ourselves. The exhibitions kicked off August 5 and some aspects of the project continue through November 13. Much of the exhibition explores the role of Kodak and popular photography in the shaping of Rochester’s self-image, and asks the question of how Rochester will choose to cope in the aftermath of Kodak’s legacy.

Finger Lakes’ potential
On the deliberations of the state’s regional economic development councils: As
a Rochester native who works (seasonally) in the Finger Lakes wine industry, I am deeply concerned with the Upstate economic picture. Considering the potential encroachment of hydrofracking — and the short-sighted advocacy on the temporary, likely contracted jobs that it will offer — I am befuddled by the lack of vision that developers and lawmakers have regarding our beautiful natural resources. I also must say that I am seriously plotting a move to northern California’s wine region. This breaks my heart; the potential is here, although it is almost disregarded by most who can push for and support change. In some of the northern counties of California, the economy has more or less stabilized or continues to grow, and is essentially affordable (outside of the Napa-Sonoma hotbeds). The land and its bounty are quite similar to Upstate and the Finger Lakes region. Why, oh why, can we not refocus our economic attention on helping those who advocate agri-tourism, natural beauty, and wisely using what is right under our noses? Let’s help, rather than hinder those thoughtful, hard workers who consider how they use and care for the land. It does not take a think tank to understand that we need to do a 180 when it comes to addressing the future of this state. SANDY ROBINSON
MAG, art, and Otterness
On the Tom Otterness-Memorial Art Gallery controversy: MAG has every right
to hire him, but I also have every right to be disgusted by his past decision, regardless of an apology. Can I help it if I am reminded of a dog killer every time I even think of MAG from now on? This is not the way to get my patronage and support in the future. CHRIS
Thank you MAG for standing up to these animal rights “terrorists”. All I can hope for is that everyone will just let it be. KRIS
Animal terrorists? All that the Rochester community is trying to do is make sure that people know that it is NOT okay to abuse and in this case murder an animal. If this man really was sorry he would be serving time for his crime on his own free will. Not only that, but he has failed to give back to any animal oriented organizations. ISAAC BROWNSTEIN
At first I was disgusted that MAG would invite such a despicable person to exhibit. Then I started thinking: haven’t we all made mistakes in our lives? Granted most of us don’t kill helpless animals, but who are we to judge? The beauty of a free society is choice. Both the MAG and yours. SUSAN
Let’s remember, Otterness refused to apologize until 2008, only doing so to prevent the halt of a million-dollar job. Other cities have tossed him out and so should Rochester. We have many of our own great artists that better represent our community and values. DEB
The Memorial Art Gallery has every right to fulfill its mission. They have the same right to lose patronage by a discerning public
OCTOBER 12-18, 2011
for shoving this man’s unforgivable atrocity in our faces, no matter how long ago it occurred or how long he took to come up with words suggestive of an apology. How will anyone be able to walk among the figures of the planned sculpture park and not envision a bullethole in the head of each of the figures? The MAG director sees this installation as “reminiscent of the old town square concept where people meet to carry on public conversations.” I think we can all imagine what they’ll be talking about. GET SIRIUS
When we don’t hold people responsible, we acknowledge and support their actions. If Picasso was a child-killer Nazi, I am sure most museums would remove his work. MARCOS B
On Kodak’s problems and our article “Room for Optimism in Local Economy,” October 5: This will
probably come over totally wrong, but a bankruptcy here might be the best thing. This company has been on a very slow but steady decline for decades. This significantly hurts Rochester’s image. Maybe we should just get it over with, declare Kodak dead (hopefully with a name change when it emerges from restructuring court) and start re-defining ourselves with the many other positive things that are happening in Rochester. Has anyone been reading the numbers? We’re at 7 percent unemployment while the rest of the country is at 9 percent. There’s lots to be optimistic about in Rochester. Okay: you can flame me now. ADAM
Paying the price of life in the US
On the News Blog, “The Price of Living in a Civilized Society”: The wealthy
were entrusted, via social
contract, with creating jobs with the Reagan “trickle down theory” and via multiple stimulus efforts, and they didn’t live up to their end of the bargain. It’s time we take back those “talents” and give them to the people who can stimulate the economy: the people that need to spend money on groceries every day to feed their families. The cumulative effect of one person spending $1 on groceries, where that $1 flows to the grocer, the farmer, the truck driver, and from there to the stock handlers, the tractor and fertilizer salesman, and the gas station far outweighs the cumulative effect of $1 given to a bank that will not lend it, or to a corporation that sits on it speculating that they can buy other businesses when the recession forces them into foreclosure.

Sex and addiction
On “Sex Addiction Comes Out of the Shadows” (September 28): In the 1970’s homosexuality was removed from the DSM as a mental disorder, and we are told it’s perfectly normal behavior. Now we are told there is such a thing as sex addiction, yet it is not classified as either an addiction or disorder in the DSM. How much longer before “sex addiction” qualifies a person for SSDI and Medicaid? It’s all about the money, inventing disease and lining one’s pockets with government money, expanding the victim class, and enabling unproductive dependent lifestyles. PETE
To Pete: If you spoke to the people I speak with, you would know that sex addiction is real. There is ever-better understanding that reward-circuitry in the region of the mid-brain is involved in process addictions such as food, gambling, and sex. If you doubt that there is an entity such as sex addiction, if might help to talk with the wife or partner of a sex addict. Their lives are powerfully affected
by the sex addiction. The effect is not pretty. DANIEL MORRIS, LCSW, CSAT
Dr. Carnes raises valid points regarding addiction to food and sex versus alcohol, drugs, or gambling. Food and sex are important for survival and a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, these addictions are more difficult to treat because abstinence is not an option. Our society must recognize that sex addiction is a real problem. We need cutting-edge strategies to properly diagnose, treat, and reduce the incidence of sex addiction, which will promote healthy lifestyles within relationships. A NEUROSCIENTIST
The problem is not in the substance or process but in the brain of the individual who struggles with repeated use despite his or her desire to stop. The first time I heard the term “sex addiction,” my response was that this is just an excuse to moralize on the part of practitioners or for the accused to explain away poor choices. Now that I have spent a decade studying about and working with sex addicts, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the diagnosis is valid. It would be difficult for anyone to listen to the stories of individuals who have broken every promise to themselves and others and ignored every selfprescribed roadblock only to behave over and over in ways that go against their own moral code and cause such devastating pain to loved ones. Not financial ruin, the end of successful careers, threat of divorce, estranged children, tragic health consequences, or spiritual disconnection is motivation enough to aid in the change of behavior for these suffering souls. I encourage anyone who is interested to read more about this brain disorder before jumping to shortsighted conclusions. DEBORAH SCHILLER, LPS, CSAT-S

urban journal | by mary anna towler
Risk-averse Rochester I’ve been thinking a lot about risk lately. And the importance of risk tolerance. It’s hard to watch the stock market and not think about those things, but I’ve been thinking about risk and “personality”: whether risk tolerance is something innate. And whether it’s in the DNA of a community. Our Tim Macaluso led my mind down this path last week, with a blog about Rochester and its future, as Kodak was going through yet another couple of badnews days and Mayor Tom Richards was trying to preserve the Midtown-Paetec project. Despite Greater Rochester’s numerous attributes, we just slog along, a step forward, a step back. In his blog, Tim, who was living in Silicon Valley as its boom began, noted some of the ingredients of California’s success: venturecapital investment, for instance. And the area’s universities developed “a coordinated strategy in research and technology to support innovation,” Tim said. But, he wrote, there was something else: “Top executives from Google to Apple routinely describe the region’s business atmosphere as one that embraces risk-taking. Failure doesn’t have the same connotations in the Valley as it does in other parts of the country, they say. Startups come and they go. Some, however, succeed in the wildest terms imaginable.” Our area, Tim wrote, “may have to get over our aversion to business failures if we want Rochester’s entrepreneurial spirit to soar again.” How does Greater Rochester view risktaking? As an essential ingredient of growth and innovation? Or as something to be avoided at all costs? How do we view failure? Do we say “good try?” Or do we laugh and taunt the risk taker? Well, you know the answer: We not only taunt, but we wear our taunting as a badge of honor. Prime example: the ferry. We turned out in the thousands to welcome it into the river. We took visitors down to the port to see it — showing it off with as much pride as we show when we drag visitors through the aisles of Wegmans. (The worship of which, of course, is another story.) But when the ferry ran into trouble, we hooted. Practically cheered. And I’ll bet you that if there is no Paetec or Windstream office erected at Midtown, we’ll literally wallow in glee. See? See? Rochester can’t do anything right! I don’t mean that we should take risks foolishly, or that ventures like the ferry
Where’s the Steve Jobs of Upstate New York? If one exists, how will we react to him? shouldn’t have a solid business plan. But there are no guarantees, in life, business, or government. And Monrovians seem afraid to do anything without a guarantee. A recent High Tech History post related the story of tech whiz Charles Simonyi, who left his job at Xerox PARC in Palo Alto in the 1980’s to join Microsoft. His reason: “that Xerox was simply ‘an old company going downhill,’ and that it wasn’t just that they didn’t have all the right answers to complex technology questions. ‘That’s normal,’ he said. But what bothered him the most was that they didn’t know the right questions, either.” It is a dismaying mystery to me that a region with this much talent — and with the history of Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, George Eastman, and Chester Carlson — is stuck, physically and mentally. Whatever used to be in the water, whatever inspired those Rochester heroes to take the risks they took, seems to have evaporated. Kodak went from cutting-edge to asleep-at-the-wheel — missing the opportunities that Silicon Valley thrived on. Xerox missed the potential in its own computer that Steve Jobs and Bill Gates saw. Where’s the Steve Jobs of Upstate New York? If one exists, how will we react to him? And when he fails in his first venture, will we hoot him out of town? “Make no little plans,” said architect and dreamer Daniel Burnham, who helped turn Chicago into what it is today. What will we do when the next big thing comes along in the Community of Monroe? Have we bred risk tolerance out of our DNA?

City has new window policy
The Rochester Preservation Board approved a window-replacement policy that greatly limits the use of replacement windows and doors in preservation districts. The policy promotes repair and preservation of the original wood windows and doors whenever possible to preserve the character and value of older buildings. The policy applies only to buildings located within the city’s preservation districts and buildings that are designated landmarks. Replacing wood windows will require a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Preservation Board.
Pittsford hearing postponed
The Pittsford Town Board delayed a public hearing on new residential zoning laws after an overflow crowd turned out. The proposal has been controversial because it calls for a new Design Review Board, which will usurp a major function of the Historic Preservation Commission. The town has not announced a new date for the hearing.
Dems demand UTC investigation County Legislature Democrats submitted legislation that would authorize
an investigation of the contract between Monroe County and Upstate Telecommunications Corporation, the subject of a critical Comptroller’s Office audit. Under the Dems’ proposal, the investigation would be handled by the County Legislature, but it’s not likely that the Republican-dominated Lej will approve the legislation.

Snarls slow superintendent search
No RPD layoffs
The Rochester Police Department managed to fulfill its obligation to help the city balance its budget without cutting nine newly hired police officers. When fewer officers took an early retirement offer than the city had expected, there were fears that layoffs would follow. But the department found more than $800,000 in savings.
Disagreement among some city school board members and between the board and some community activists have delayed the board’s hiring of a search firm to help find a new superintendent of city schools.
Midtown price dispute settled
City officials agreed to pay $9.8 million for the Midtown Plaza property — $4 million more than they had originally planned. The property’s former owners, Midtown Rochester Properties, had wanted more than $18 million, but the State Supreme Court recently ruled that the property is worth $9.8 million. MRP has agreed to the deal, officials say.
Malik Evans: “The community will have input into the superintendent search process.” FILE Photo
The board had hoped to hire a new superintendent by the end of this school year, but last week, board members postponed a vote to hire the executive search firm Ray and Associates. The school board had a special meeting Tuesday night, unrelated to the superintendent search — although one board member said the topic could come up. Board President Malik Evans said in a phone conversation Tuesday morning that no vote would be taken. Some activists say the board doesn’t need to hire a firm. With the help of the community, they say, the board and the district have the resources to do the search. And the money saved would be better spent in the classroom, says Howard Eagle, a member of the Community Education Task Force and a candidate for school board.
But most board members say the board doesn’t have the ability to conduct a thorough search for the best candidate. Identifying superintendent candidates for an urban district is a specialty, they say. “This is a superintendent’s market. It’s that competitive,” says board member Van White. Search firms know who the best candidates are, he says. Evans says the board has always planned to involve the community. And hiring a search firm, he says, doesn’t preclude community participation. How the community will be involved is unclear, however. The board hasn’t presented a plan of how it will proceed, Eagle says. And parents and community members want greater involvement than meeting the finalists, he says.

Major changes have recently been made to the design of the McDonald’s in Collegetown, and the project may now win neighborhood support, says Dan Hurley, president of the Upper Mt. Hope Neighborhood Association. “It’s a huge improvement over the first couple of designs,” he says. “It’s like night and day, actually.”

Collegetown back on track? It’s fair to say that the Mt. Hope Collegetown project hasn’t gotten off to the best start. The first two projects in the massive 16acre development — a Tim Hortons and a McDonald’s — met with neighborhood resistance, and the Hortons case is in court. But major changes have recently been made to the design of the new McDonald’s, and the project may now win neighborhood support, says Dan Hurley, president of the Upper Mt. Hope Neighborhood Association. “It’s a huge improvement over the first couple of designs,” he says. “It’s like night and day, actually.” McDonald’s plans to tear down its current restaurant at 1422 Mt. Hope, rebuild, and expand. But members of the Mt. Hope Avenue Task Force didn’t like the original design because, they said, it didn’t mesh with their vision for Collegetown as a pedestrian-friendly development with an urban-village feel. The new design clears up many unpopular elements, Hurley says. It includes room for two driving lanes in the rear of the new restaurant to alleviate traffic congestion and to enhance the area for pedestrians and cyclists. And the building would be much closer to the street than originally planned. “Generally you want sort of a Main Street feel, like window-shopping when you can

walk along a sidewalk and stroll right into a store,” Hurley says. Task Force members are still concerned about the operating hours of the restaurant’s drive-through, Hurley says. It closes at 2 a.m. and neighbors are worried that McDonald’s will eventually want a 24-hour drive-through. But overall, Hurley says, he’s satisfied with the changes and he’s encouraged about the future of the Collegetown project — something he couldn’t say a month ago. “We’re not anti-business,” he says. “We just want a business that’s willing to work with our vision.” The City Planning Commission will consider a zoning change for the McDonald’s project at its October 17 meeting. The commission was supposed to vote last month, but Mayor Tom Richards asked for a delay so the city’s engineering and zoning departments could work with McDonald’s and neighbors on new designs. The Planning Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 30 Church Street.

Mayor Tom Richards has released the draft environmental statement on the Port of Rochester public marina development project. When completed, the project would include a 157-slip marina, and a mixed-use development with residential, commercial, and retail space. | Mark Gregor, who is overseeing the project, says he expects the development to generally draw the “smaller house, bigger boat” crowd. Many of the people who would occupy the development would most likely be locals who no longer want to maintain big homes and lawns, he says. | A market analysis and meetings with several local developers, Gregor says, showed that demand for the marina and housing are linked, both for developers and the public. | “If there were no marina, nobody’s particularly interested in the site,” he says. | Typically, 20 to 25 percent of those interested in the housing units would also want a slip, Gregor says. | Phase I of the project, which should begin next year, includes constructing the first 85 slips of the marina, extending the Genesee Riverway Trail, and creating a 700-foot-long Lighthouse Trail from Lake Avenue to the Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse. | A public hearing on the project is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1, at City Hall, 30 Church Street. | The DEIS for the project and other information: cityofrochester.gov/marina.

Rochester, meet your Occupiers

The Occupy Together movement is spreading far beyond its initial protests on Wall Street to places as far flung as Oakland and The Hague. There’s even an Occupy Puerto Rico. And Rochester is among the cities that now have “occupations” of their own. At 4 p.m. every day, Monday through Friday, individuals and groups gather at the Liberty Pole. They also meet from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street, in their general assembly: essentially an organizing session. Occupy Rochester participants have also protested in solidarity with other groups. On Monday, they joined with Band of Rebels, a self-described group of grandparents and allies who’ve been protesting outside Bank of America’s Rochester offices every Monday from noon to 1 p.m. On Tuesday, Occupy Rochester participants planned to march with members of a county union that has been without a contract for three years. Last week they protested with Rochester Against War. (Daily updates about Occupy Rochester, as well as a calendar of protests and occupations, are available on the group’s website, www.occupyrochester.org.) Nationally, the Occupy movement has focused on corporate greed and the influence that large companies have on politics. Their slogan is “We are the 99 percent,” and they are protesting greed and corruption among the top 1 percent of wealthy Americans. The movement has brought in a variety of other issues, including the foreclosure crisis, the City

wars, bank bailouts, progressive taxation, and unemployment rates The broad range of issues earned the movement early criticism: that the protestors are unfocused and don’t offer specifics. But what others criticize, the local participants see as part of the movement’s appeal as well as a potential strength. The Occupy movements naturally have a range of demands, given the few outlets people have for airing their frustrations, says Rochester Against War spokesperson Brian Lenzo. “There isn’t just one issue that is making people upset and that people are frustrated with,” Lenzo says. A central point or focus isn’t necessary, says Kitty Drebitko of Canandaigua, who participated in Monday’s Bank of America protest. The whole point is to get people talking about issues. The problem, as she sees it, is that those discussions aren’t happening. “There’s not necessarily one endpoint,” she says. So who are Rochester’s 99 percent? And what
do they want? Drebitko is a St. John Fisher College graduate with a full-time job. She worked three jobs while she was in college, had no health care during that time, and now has student loans to pay off. At Monday’s protest, she was with her friend, Shelby Koroly of Brockport. Koroly is a single mom trying to get by who wasn’t able to complete her college

education. She says she can’t afford to go back to school. “They don’t make it easy for low-income families to go to college,” Koroly says. Both women say college needs to be more affordable. Koroly also wants better education funding in general and more emphasis on alternative energy. Drebitko says the minimum wage is too low, CEO pay should be capped, and health care is still unaffordable for many. Among the families at Monday’s protest was South Wedge resident Brian Schroeder and his children. “Half the reason I’m here is them,” he said. Schroeder says he’s focused on campaign finance reform. In particular he wants the Citizens United decision reversed and publicly financed elections implemented. Elected officials are under too much influence from campaign donors, he said. “I think that’s the root of it all,” he said. Labor groups are a new addition to the movement. The national AFL-CIO backs the movement and so do local unions, says Jim Bertolone, president of the Rochester and Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation. The movement’s emphasis on jobs and on making the rich pay their fair share of taxes resonated with labor, he says. “We will embrace this and every ally that we can find,” Bertolone says. A group of IBEW Local 86 members turned out for Monday afternoon’s protest. Dan O’Mealia, an official with the union, said it’s “disgusting” that struggling American workers pay their share of state and federal taxes, while companies like General Electric pay none.
There’s palpable excitement about the
Occupy movement and its potential. But nobody seems to know where, exactly, the movement goes from here. In fact, nobody’s even certain how long it will last. Some participants worry that the coming cold weather will dampen the outdoor protests. But Mellody Russo, a member of Band of Rebels, is optimistic. For years, she and other activists have tried to bring issues of corporate greed, the influence of money on electoral politics, and fair taxation to the public’s attention. “I think there’s starting to be critical mass,” she says. As for the movement evolving, its participants could try to influence elections. Bertolone points to a favored tool of unions, the endorsement. Or withholding endorsements in cases where no candidate is appealing. Occupy supporters could also throw their weight behind specific issues, like fair taxation, campaign finance reform, or the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act, Russo says. Ultimately, participants say the movement will be successful if it shapes dialogue and policy. They look at the effect the Tea Party movement has had and say they see no reason why they can’t do the same. “Let’s be happy about the fact that so many people are supporting what’s going on and so many people are involved,” Russo says. “That right there is success of a sort. Then you look toward shaping the dialogue, the political dialogue, for change.”

Dining makes fresh from scratch those squishy, pre-packaged gems you’re often tempted by at the Asian market. “We usually have a bigger selection on the weekend,” the server needlessly apologized as I gathered my eyeballs up off of the floor in front of the showcases. White Swans’ pastry menu lists 45 different cakes, buns, and rolls, like the classic savory roast pork bun, as well as sweet options like red bean, taro, and pineapple. So long, fortune cookies! White Swans Asia Caffe is located at 798 S. Clinton Ave. Prices range from 90 cents to $10. It is open Sunday-Thursday 9 a.m.9:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday 9 a.m.-10:30 p.m. For more information, call 270-4431.

“Oh, I would love it if they came down in their pajamas for breakfast,” says chef Jill Doebler of the dozens of Eastman School of Music students residing in the University Place apartments, which sit atop downtown’s newest restaurant, Duck Soupe. And with most-important-meal-of-the-day offerings like stuffed French toast with mixed berries, or duck confit, pancetta, and sweet-potato hash with poached eggs, Doebler could soon be getting used to the early-morning pitterpatter of stockinged feet. The most recent addition to Tony Gullace’s Max Rochester brand — and just a stone’s throw from the Max flagship at Eastman Place — Duck Soupe aims to help fill a niche that seemed to appear when many of the professional sorts quit the city’s once-bustling heart for the suburbs and took their casual eateries with them. Doebler humbly likens her food to diner fare, and though the reasonable prices support that claim, the actual menu might not. Lunch features sandwiches like the juicy Tuscan pork, redolent of rosemary and topped with melted provolone along with delightfully bitter rapini, and a turkey BLT on whole wheat, slathered in a sweet-tart cranberry mayo that complements the smoke of the gorgeously meaty bacon. Both are served with Duck Soupe’s salty, crunchy, and addictive house-made potato chips. A bright, open space that until earlier this year housed Rosey’s Italian Café (which is now in Penfield), Duck Soupe has about eight tables as well as 14 luncheonette-type counter
seats that are perfect for that solo guest in the mood for a quick bowl of soup — selections rotate, but if you’re lucky, it could be the yummy Manhattan sausage-potato chowder — with a side of WiFi. Doebler, who made her bones at places like Max Market, Sienna, and Virtu, is planning theme nights for Duck Soupe’s late-week dinners, such as pasta on Wednesdays (in a nod to the former tenant) and a Friday fish fry. Plus, with a flock of musical neighbors, Doebler hopes some of the very local talent will find its way to Duck Soupe’s cozy stage. No wine and beer license as of yet, but it’s in the pipeline. Duck Soupe is located at 350 E. Main St. Breakfast and lunch prices range from $3 to $10 (dinner prices unavailable at press time). The restaurant is open Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-4 p.m., with Wednesday-Friday dinner service scheduled to begin October 12. For more information, call 713-1472 or visit maxrochester.net.
Sweet and graceful
White Swans Asia Caffe is open in the former
South City Garden location (and, back in the day, the home of Basha Mediterranean Eatery), serving up an array of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai specialties, both popular and a little more obscure, and all very nicely priced. “So what?” You may be thinking. “If I want to have pho, chuchee fish, and General Tso’s chicken all in one sitting, then wash it down with a honeydew bubble tea, there are plenty of places I can go.” First of all, lose the attitude. Secondly, you may be right. But what sets White Swans apart from its peers is its in-house bakery, which
11,000 square feet. That’s the size of the brand-spanking-new Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint in Henrietta, the proverbial country cousin to the original Sticky Lips at the corner of Culver and Atlantic. Owner Howard Nielsen repurposed the former Roadhouse Grill as part of the nifty, massive new space, which dishes up Sticky Lips’ award-winning barbecue (along with its impressive vegetarian selection) amidst walls decorated with playful antiques and memorabilia. The Juke Joint also boasts a full bar, and you can catch live music Wednesday through Saturday. Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint is located at 830 Jefferson Road. Prices range from $2.95 to $23.95. It is open MondayTuesday 11 a.m.-midnight, WednesdaySaturday 11 a.m.-2 a.m., and Sunday noon-9 p.m. For more information, call 292-5544 or visit stickylipsbbq.com.
Picking up the tab
On Tuesday, October 25, 18 local restaurants are slated to take part in the Gay Alliance Dines OUT fundraiser, pledging a portion of their sales from the night in support of the community-oriented programs of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley. Those with only a little to spend could hit up one of the Boulder Coffee Co. locations, while splurgers might want to make the gastronomic pilgrimage to Warfield’s High Point; both will donate 15 percent of their sales as part of the program. Or you could treat yourself to the Winfield Grill, which will contribute a generous 50 percent of that day’s sales. Visit gayalliance.org or pick up a copy of this month’s Empty Closet for a full list of participating restaurants. Do you have a food or restaurant tip for our Chow Hound?

WE’RE BLOGGING EVERY WEEKDAY ABOUT LOCAL, STATE & NATIONAL ISSUES

J O I N I N T H E C O V E R S AT I O N AT
Like countless other post-industrial cities suffering from ongoing decline — such as Detroit, Michigan, and Oakland, California — Rochester has a bit of an identity crisis. Meaning, the city is limping along economically, with seemingly very little vision for our current state, let alone our future, while our humiliating mountain of failed projects keeps rising (see: Fast Ferry, Renaissance Square, developing Midtown, etc.). Segregation along race and poverty lines is as sharply defined as the Inner Loop’s boundaries, and a slowing of the mass young-adult exodus, the so-called “brain drain” is nowhere in sight. “Transitions-Rochester,” a collaborative exhibit and series of events held at three local cultural institutions, explores how our city is dealing with its transitional period, and seeks to open up discussion about what future Rochester might be shifting toward. It remains to be seen if we will pull together to improve the quality of life for all Rochester residents, revitalize the city center, and invent a future for ourselves. “Rochester’s days as a company town are over, and urban sprawl and ineffective city planning have left it a disabled core surrounded by middleclass wealth,” begins the provided statement from participating venue Visual Studies Workshop regarding the exhibit. “Transitions-Rochester” is collaborative in a few ways: between local and international artists, between arts institutions in the area, and possibly, between visionaries and movers and shakers inspired to effect some real and substantial change in this place. The project, initiated by Dutch photographers Theo Baart and Cary Markerink, and Rochester-based curators Rick Hock of Visual Studies Workshop and Alison Nordström of George Eastman House, also includes support from Visual Studies Workshop, FOTODOK of The Netherlands, Rochester Contemporary Art Center, Eastman House, photographer Andrea Stultiens of the Netherlands, as well as the Rochester-based photographers Gregory Halpern and Oscar Palacio, sound artist Jason Bernagozzi, and graffiti mural artists the FUA Krew. The exhibitions kicked off August 5 and some aspects of the project continue through November 13. Much of the exhibition explores the role of Kodak and popular photography in the shaping of Rochester’s self-image, and asks the question of how Rochester will choose to cope in the aftermath of Kodak’s legacy. 10 City OCTOBER 12-18, 2011
THROUGH ART [ F E AT U R E ] B Y R E B E C C A R A F F E RT Y
The seeds for “Transitions-Rochester” were
planted with a 2009 George Eastman House exhibition in collaboration a Dutch museum, says George Eastman House curator Alison Nordström. This exhibit, entitled “Nature as Artifice,” was a show of contemporary Dutch landscape photographs by more than a dozen Dutch photographers based on the premise that there is no natural land left in Holland — because of a dearth of space, everything has been developed. “Several of the photographers came here for the show, because it had a lot of site-specific installations in it,” says Nordström. “Two of them — Cary Markerink and Theo Baart — fell in love with Rochester. They’d never seen anything like it. And it was so interesting walking around Rochester with them and listening to what caught their eye. What they loved was all those abandoned industrial buildings that we have, because in Holland, since there’s no room, the moment a factory closes, the building gets repurposed for something else.” As Nordström spoke, I was struck with selfconsciousness: what would such an efficient culture think of our baffling apathy over use of land, space, and ready-to-reuse structures? Markerink and Baart also saw many similarities between Holland and our city, and
as photographers who both work with urban planners, “one of their questions was: what is the best response, in a city that has been based on manufacturing, when the factories go away? And I think they were particularly interested in the fact that what we used to manufacture here was photographic,” says Nordström. With support from the Dutch government, Markerink and Baart initiated this project, which would be a study of Rochester from a foreign perspective, with the idea that eventually the artists will do a similar study in a former manufacturing city in Holland. The project grew to include work by a third Dutch photographer, Andrea Stultiens, as well as a number of Rochester-based artists, together adding to the story of what Rochester has been, what it is, and what it might yet become. The first exhibit to open in the “Transitions-
Rochester” project was Rochester Contemporary Art Center’s “State of the City 2011: In the Loop,” which was on display August 5 through September 25. The show focused in particular on the cumbersome, divisive Inner Loop, with beautiful paintings of the Loop and its surrounding areas by Jim Mott; photos that omitted the roadway from the landscape as well as an interactive re-envisioning of the space it

occupies by Cary Markerink; layered graphics and information telling the history of our Loop and others presented by The Landmark Society of Western New York (in collaboration with designers and artists Eric Bridle, Lisa Feinstein, and Matté); a video, photo, and drawing installation by Rochester experimental artists Bartow+Metzgar with James Downer and Greg Stewart; and Ithaca artist Mark Edward Grimm’s surreal surveillance-installation dealing with police activity and interaction over radio in and around the Inner Loop. The exhibit at Visual Studies Workshop is accompanied by six books produced for this project, each including images and essays from each of the individual projects, packaged in a slim, Kodak-esque gold folio. An abbreviated version of most of these artists’ works is also found at George Eastman House through November 6. “’Transitions’ was conceived as a way for artists to be included in discussions about the future of Rochester, says Visual Studies Workshop Director Tate Shaw. “We recognize that new artist support models no longer give time and money directly to artists expecting they will simply create culture independently. Now artists and designers are at the center of larger, community-wide efforts of city planning, economic and community development, and this is where VSW is taking its artist-support programs. I see ‘Transitions’ as a model for future interdisciplinary efforts supporting communities here in the city.” At VSW, Cary Markerink’s “Inner Loop” includes images of people and downtown scenes, bits of debris, in color atop black and white scenes, and is complemented by an essay about his first morning in Rochester. The artist contemplates the Berlin Wall fragment on display in the Bausch & Lomb headquarters, entitled “Every Wall Falls Eventually,” and wonders if a dismantled piece of the Inner Loop might one day join this mini exhibit, which he feels should be titled, “All Infrastructure Eventually Becomes Obsolete.” The 2.68-mile ring-road that “physically and mentally” divides downtown from the rest of the city has a presence “like a scar,” says Markerink in his essay. The loop dead-ends streets like a “local variation of the Berlin Wall,” he says, and simultaneously speaks volumes about our lack of integration skills with our structures as well as with our people.
Theo Baart’s “Sound Horn” is full of images of an abandoned downtown with loads of empty lots, derelict buildings, and includes three of 20 total essays from individuals from various Rochester communities. One story features a former Kodak employee who, when laid off after nearly 25 years of employment, found himself working the same job at the same desk, the only difference being the new signature on his paycheck from the contracting company who hired him. Baart’s work is a prelude to a larger publication about cities and regions that, “hit hard by the departure of the manufacturing industry, are looking for new sources of income,” per the artist’s statement. By contrast, RIT professor Gregory Halpern’s images could have been be taken anywhere. Where they show the broken-down detritus of the city, it’s done mostly in minute detail — an eerily glowing shard of broken glass in the dark dirt, or a bit of plastic garbage left behind in a concrete corner. His images of people are lovely portraits: a child slightly turned away in the shadows, a man holding the camera’s gaze and standing amid seemingly lush plant life. An immense tree with truncated limbs stands in an atmospheric field with the glow from nearby houselights, its unproductive remaining mass perhaps a subtle metaphor. “I am personally drawn to Gregory Halpern’s darkly poetic vision of Rochester and cities like it as imagined gardens of Eden that have cast us out,” says VSW Director Tate Shaw. “The point is to show that Rochester is not a paradise, but a place worth rethinking.” Eastman House allotted the gallery space nearest
its University Avenue entrance for its survey show of around 50 images from the individual photographic explorations of Rochester by Andrea Stultiens, Oscar Palacio, and Gregory Halpern, and the collaborative photos by Cary Markerink and Theo Baart. Many of the images are included in the Visual Studies Workshop exhibit as well. Markerink and Baart worked independently but also collaborated under the title “Works on Paper,” says Nordström. This is a project about parking lots, “which seemed so Rochester to Cary and Theo, because it’s not nearly as common to have a car in Holland as in the United States. Everyone rides bicycles and takes public transportation, and if there are parking lots, they tend to be multi-storied because there’s no room.” “The number of parking lots in Rochester really surprised them, and that’s what they focused on,” says Nordström. “You can just see their kind of wonder — here’s all this space where you could build 30 apartment buildings, but we haven’t.” Perhaps it takes an outsider to properly discern the true waste of what is to many of us visual white noise. Picture after picture reveals a fascinated look at blacktop crisscrossed with parking-space quadrants and repaired tar, contrasted with amazing expanses of bright blue sky — available to the eye due to the uninterrupted flat spans of land — with towering, fluffy clouds. The usage of space is also one of the foci of Colombian-born, Rochester-based Oscar Palacio, who also teaches at RIT. His project,

bygone era of happy shoppers in Midtown Plaza. The flip side of the wall is a dystopian version of the same scene, complete with a wrecking ball, a man holding a gun, and a derelict-looking group of people. Nordström felt that it was crucial to include art by FUA Krew in this endeavor. They’re “probably the most important artists in Rochester,” she says, “they’re so widely recognized in Europe and Asia,” but not as much here. In a side space, Dan Varenka’s video “After the Riots” includes a bit of a history lesson, told at ground level through newspaper headlines, images, and voiceover by 7th Ward residents and community-housing activists, about the discrimination leading up to the 1964 race riots, the aftermath, how none of the promises made to Rochester’s poorest residents have been kept, and how relations between the police and African Americans aren’t much better now. “People that didn’t grow up in Rochester, in the city, don’t have the same concerns” as outsiders who commute for work, says Range of FUA Krew. It’s easy to share the same city and the same
“The Great Yellow Father” — a nickname for Kodak by employees — so-named for Kodak’s bearing on this town, includes aerial shots of quadrants of Kodak Park taken in 2005 (shown in color) and again in 2009 (displayed in black and white). Where change is evident, it shows not development, but decline. Some areas where buildings once stood are now empty lots, and where parking lots were once filled to the brim with employees’ vehicles, far fewer cars are parked there today. Palacio is also “particularly interested in the idea of paternalism” says Nordström. Any company town has some element of the paternal, she says, “but because [Palacio] comes from a Latin-American culture, which is much more strongly paternalistic than ours, he was particularly interested in the way Kodak advertized its products in South America.” Given access to the Eastman House Legacy Collection, which holds all of the advertizing Kodak ever did, Palacio researched ads generated by Kodak for the South American market, with an interest in imagery that dealt with the role of the father. As a result, part of Palacio’s exhibit includes idyllic vintage photos of fathers photographing their families, or men photographic women, used in adverts for Colombia’s “Cromos” magazine in the 1920’s. “This project explores the death of the ‘father’ and its urban implications for the city of Rochester,” per the artists’ statement for his works at VSW and Eastman House. “The Kodak Corporation, colloquially known by employees as ‘The Great Yellow Father’ and ‘Daddy Kodak,’ has visibly declined.” Also hailing from Holland, photographer Andrea
Stultiens sought to connect with people in Rochester by interviewing and photographing retired Kodak workers, photographing people at Ontario Beach Park and Seabreeze, and photographing people photographing others at those locations, emphasizing what an effectively democratized pastime photography remains. Stultiens’ VSW installation, “Reasons to Smile,” includes these images as well as Rochester and Kodak ephemera in the form of
booklets of images pinned to the wall. “Hope” is a booklet of the highest-rated photos of Mt. Hope Cemetery on image-hosting website Flickr. Images include dogs playing in leaves and flowers, glowing twilight, and lovely architecture. Another, entitled “For Sale,” holds photographs of Kodak items, including old cameras, film, and other paraphernalia, taken by Andrew Ghend, for eBay sales. “A Good Night” is full of photographs by Allen Keppen (of ihadagoodnight.com) of young people out drinking being…young people out drinking. Also at Visual Studies, “Inner Workings,” a collaboration between VSW grad students Julia Muniz, Jason Bernagozzi, and Dan Varenka, as well as Rochester’s premier graffiti writers, FUA Krew, examines Rochester’s relationship, or lack thereof, with the north side of the city. The Puerto Rican and African-American communities who live and work on and around North Clinton Avenue need a “change in consciousness and a sense of ownership,” says Muniz. The installation and accompanying book include interviews with and portraits of residents, images of of FUA Krew at work on their striking murals, at the annual BBOY BBQ, and in the abandoned subway. In a room opposite the main Siskind Gallery space at VSW, Jason Bernagozzi’s “The City is Breathing” is a sound sculpture made of a chain of speakers that play noises recorded under the streets in steam vaults, sewers, drainage systems, and abandoned subway tunnels. The work explores the body system of the city that is “powered, fueled, and even destroyed by the beings that shape and inhabit its borders,” per the provided statement. The artist compares electrical lines to a nervous system, and water pipes to veins. The recorded and played-back cacophony is a symphony of hisses, muffled voices, sounds like glass shattering and repetitive clanks, revealing an eerie, mysterious underworld that leaves the viewer considering the city as a living organism, worthy of attention and care. FUA Krew’s spray-paint installation is a freestyle image by group members Oz, Cruk, and Efie that takes up the entire center wall structure of the VSW’s Siskind Gallery, depicting on one side a
dilemmas as the people in Rochester, says Nordström, but to only really get to know the people who are exactly like you. But exhibitions such as “Transitions-Rochester” have the potential to bring people together over crucial issues, she says. “Cultural institutions can start the conversations — for one thing, it makes us a place to have the conversation, and you can’t have too many of those.” “I think the exhibit and publications address the need for more shared public experiences in Rochester,” says VSW’s Shaw. “When you look at the bleak landscape around the Kodak Parkarea bus stop photographed by Oscar Palacio, or the dark and divisive chain-linked borders of the Inner Loop and the empty lots as pictured by Cary Markerink and Theo Baart respectively, the environment is showing us that our use of space needs reconsidering.” “Pending funding, it is our hope that the American photographers who have been part of this project will go to Holland and will work in one of the cities that used to manufacture electronic equipment […] and compare how that country and that culture is dealing with [living] in a formerly industrial community,” says Nordström. “We are certainly not alone in facing these challenges.” Visual Studies Workshop will hold an openhouse event on Thursday, October 13, 6-10 p.m. at 31 Prince Street, at which you can view the exhibit, witness a live painting demo by FUA Krew, and provide your own commentary in the custom gallery video booth. Displays from the Workshop’s visual resources will be exhibited throughout the space, and myriad images from VSW’s vast collections of lantern slides, news story and street photography, rare albums and books, will be available for viewing. Screenings and live events in the auditorium will also take place throughout the evening. For more information check the “Transitions-Rochester” blog at http://transitionsrochester.wordpress.com.

Eve to Adam played at Montage Music Hall Thursday, October 6. photo by FRANK DE BLASE
Surrealistic preamble [ review ] by frank de blase
Eve To Adam brought the people to their
feet Thursday night at Montage Music Hall. Despite the band’s leather-clad tightness, there was a ragged excitement that bled cool throughout the joint. This band is clearly (hopefully) the sound of rock’s future. This is where the big rock that got its start in the 90’s ultimately would have gone if it hadn’t tripped over its own dick. ETA played loud and furious with a set of music that was melodic enough to create an urge, but with enough heavy thunder to satisfy, quench, and scratch it. The guitar parts shifted gears, moving from thoughtful textures to an aggressive slash and chop. The vocals approached a throaty roar without that textbook hardrock histrionic howl. I don’t know; this could be the perfect band. Saturday night I started off at Water Street Music Hall where I see-sawed between both the main stage and the club side. Mrs. Skannotto opened up its set with an atmospheric, surrealistic preamble that resembled Pink Floyd. Adding to this peculiar and hypnotic tone was not one, but two Po’ Boys — guitarist Mike Frederick and trombonist Evan Dobbins — now
marching in the Skannotto ranks. The band hung on in the ether for a few bars before dropping in its trademark groove and acceleration. The skanking commenced. Meanwhile on the club side, 1916 was busting out Celtic rock that was more Celtic than rock. Someone informed me that I had missed the bagpipes, which might have added a little more tradition to this young band’s music. The group blasted through hoist-your-pint-type songs along with a precarious take on “That’s Alright Mama,” as well as a tune I could’ve sworn at first was “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” The band was a little rough around the edges, but its juicy center rocked. California Brew Haus keeps it alive, and has kept it alive for 42 years now. At this venue you can either dig on the fresh-squeezed talent or the seasoned talent from the old school, like The Good Rats. The sole remaining Rat, the baseball bat-wielding Peppi Marchello, sounded great as his voice rode atop the band’s loud mix. This is bar-band rock at its best, and the band was tight even though it seemed a little tired. Rock ’n’ roll takes its toll, after all.

Local band Jellyroot releases its new CD later this month. The band plays modern-leaning barroom rock ‘n’ roll. PHOTO PROVIDED
Future classic Jellyroot Saturday, October 22 Lovin Cup, Park Point Drive 9 p.m. | $3-$5 | lovincup.com [ PROFILE ] by FRANK DE BLASE
Written somewhere on the long list of reasons why any band forms — amidst the excess and the trappings — is a genuine love of music. It’s not always as high up on the list as, say, free beer and babes, but it’s there. And in the case of the rockers in Jellyroot, it’s on the very top of the list. Jellyroot is a straight-up barroom rock ’n’ roll quartet from Rochester that maintains a classic strain without sounding like just another retro rehash. And besides the obvious fact that the band is happening today, there is a contemporary freshness to the future classics brewing beneath the surface. We’ll be enjoying this band long after it’s gone. Jellyroot has just completed its second album, “The Things We Do,” at Saxon Studios and it continues to hit stages around town — an endeavor that every now and then seems like an uphill battle. “We struggle with live shows,” says Jellyroot guitarist-vocalist Chris Baerman. “It seems to be real hard to get bodies into the rooms. We’re still working on that, trying to get that fan base. One strategy is just to play less.” But the band — Baerman; his father, David Baerman, on bass; drummer Matt Cramer; and guitarist Ed Czarnecki — soldiers on. “Even if there’s no one in the clubs,” Baerman says, “I enjoy playing with these guys, I enjoy 14 City OCTOBER 12-18, 2011
writing music. I enjoy what we’re doing and the direction the music is going in.” The music has been going in this direction since
Baerman and Cramer were in the 7th grade. “Neither of us played very well — still don’t — when we got together,” says Baerman. “We were heavily into The Beatles and the music played on WKLX. We were obsessed with it, obsessed with The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran.” Those weren’t exactly typical touchstones for a band growing up in the late 80’s, and Baerman knows it. “A lot of the music [at the time] was ‘pump up the jam’ and hair metal, and that didn’t appeal to either of us,” he says. “We were outsiders in that respect.” The band that would be Jellyroot lasted through high school, then scattered after graduation. Baerman continued on to play with the oldies cover band Ruby Shooz while Cramer slid into the domestic routine. It was when the two got back together in a band that Baerman hastily threw together for a pig roast in 2008 that the two realized that there was still something there. The bass player had bailed last minute, so Baerman recruited his dad, David, who had prowled the local scene for years, most notably in The Hideouts in the early 80’s. Chris Baerman credits his dad’s love of garage rock and 60’s music for lighting his fuse in the first place. It was the perfect scenario. “And I thought, ‘My best friend and my dad?’’’ says Baerman. “This is a blast. It was like, ‘I’ve been in cover band limbo for 15 years, now I have an outlet.’”
The band holed up in Cramer’s basement and recorded its debut, “A Better Plan,” on a Yamaha 16-track digital recorder. Because the band liked to beef up and layer its music, the trio decided another guitar player was necessary to pull it off live. The band soon found that Craig’s List isn’t just for finding roommates, used cars, and cleaning ladies; it found guitarist Ed Czarnecki lurking there as well. Czarnecki has been in Jellyroot just more than a year at this point. Though his playing has helped to fatten up the band’s sound, it’s fundamentally the same. “I don’t think the arrangements really change,” Czarnecki says. “It’s more the attitude with how the songs are played that’s changed a little bit.” It’s this attitude that keeps Jellyroot focused in the storm of influences that rains down upon it. Baerman explains: “It’s the schizophrenia of what I enjoy listening to,” he says. “And I write what I enjoy. Anything can come out, and if it’s valid and cool and I’m feeling it, then we do it. The music we’re writing… we’re not writing it for anybody, we’re not writing it to be commercial — we get off on it, we dig it. You hear some artists say, ‘I don’t listen to my records.’ And I’m like, ‘Hell no, I like listening to my music.’” So does Cramer. “My son said to me the other day — we were in the truck — ‘Dad, is it kind of weird that you listen to your CD all the time?” he says. Baerman sums it up: “There’s the satisfaction,” he says. “A room full of screaming girls would be great, but my 3-year-old being my biggest fan…it doesn’t get better than that.”

Country | Joe Nichols
If you’re a fan of country music, chances are you’re familiar with the song “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off.” It’s sort of a light-hearted good-time tune that jumped out at listeners in 2005 and earned Joe Nichols a No. 1 single on the Billboard country charts. Nichols is the kind of talented, handsome Nashville devil that sends female hearts aflutter and probably wouldn’t need any help from liquor in relieving women from their garments. The Grammy-nominated Arkansas singer has released seven studio albums, including 2002’s platinum-selling “Man with a Memory.” That was the CD that garnered Nichols a top new male vocalist award from the Academy of Country Music and put a star on his dressing room door. Dave McGrath opens. Joe Nichols performs Friday, October 14, 7:30 p.m. at Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $25. 232-3221, rochestermainstreetarmory.com. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR Karaoke w/DJ Smooth.

CLASSICAL | Parker Quartet
Alternative | Close Your Eyes
The Parker Quartet won the 2011 Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance. The group includes Daniel Chang and Karen Kim, violin; Jessica Bodner, viola; and Kee-Hyun Kim, cello. The quartet’s upcoming concert at Kilbourn Hall as part of the Eastman-Ranlet Series will feature works by Debussy, Janacek, and Brahms, a decidedly traditional classical concert amidst some of the group’s cross-disciplinary performances that have included poetry (slam poetry, no less), jazz, folk, and world music, and have been put on in a broad range venues from bars to cathedrals to Carnegie Hall. Two of the Parker Quartet CDs feature the works of Ligeti and Bartok, bursting with complexities that would make most musicians flee at their first reading of the scores.
There always seems to be a bit of hype when a bright young band comes to town. Close Your Eyes from Abilene, Texas, is a clean-cut, tough, and openly Christian melodic hardcore quintet that reminds some folks of groups like A Day To Remember. Although the band’s sound may be too aggressive to be considered pop-mosh, it ain’t bad. CYE’s music is not particularly abrasive, and the group has its moments of terrific songwriting underneath all the screaming and high energy. Close Your Eyes is headlining this fall’s “Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts Tour” with like-minded groups The Color Morale, Like Moths to Flames, Counterparts, and Affiance. Also appearing is local group Sleep Circadia.

This month the Ying Quartet will release its new CD featuring the works of lesser-known Russian composer Anton Arensky. PHOTO PROVIDED
Romantic counterpoint “Ying Quartet Plays Anton Arensky” Sono Luminus [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
With any luck, Russian composer Anton Arensky might finally get the Grammy his music deserves. On October 25, the Ying Quartet is scheduled to release its CD, “Ying Quartet Plays Anton Arensky,” to mark the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The CD is deserving of major award consideration, so arresting is the vitality and beauty that the quartet breathed into the works of this lesser-known Russian master. “I would say that as a writer of counterpoint, Arensky was superior to Tchaikovsky, at least as to his chamber music,” says David Ying, cellist in the group, which remains quartet-in-residence at the Eastman School of Music. “Arensky was known in his day to be very, very talented. It’s because he didn’t live long that he’s not as big as Tchaikovsky.” (Arensky died in 1906 at age 44.) The CD contains Arensky’s String Quartet No. 1 in G Major, Op. 11, String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 35, and Piano Quintet in D Major, Op. 51. Joining David Ying in the Ying Quartet Ayano Ninomiya and Janet Ying, violins, and Phillip Ying, viola. Pianist Adam Neiman joins the musicians for the Piano Quintet. I was fortunate to preview four of the tracks as part of this article, and I simply could not get enough of the third movement of the Piano Quintet. Marked “Allegro Vivace” 18 City october 12-18, 2011
(briskly, with life), it is perfect. Clean, bright, and brisk — all the elements you would want out of this tempo marking. And it is gushing with a lusty Russian vivos, reflecting the score’s soulfulness and cheeriness, the juxtaposed characteristics appropriate to a Russian romantic composer like Arensky. Anton Stepanovich Arensky (1861-1906) lived
at a time of great Russian composers. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), just 20 years his senior, was having his works performed in all the great cities of Russia from Moscow to Odessa, in a musical scene that included Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881). Nikolai RimskyKorsakov (1844-1908) was one of Arensky’s teachers while he attended the St. Petersburg Conservatory, from which Arensky graduated in 1882 with a gold medal in composition. Nikolai Tcherepnin (1873-1945), also a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, was only a few years Arensky’s junior. Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) and Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915) later became Arensky’s pupils of harmony and counterpoint at the Moscow Conservatory. To overlook Arensky’s place in romantic classical music would be to skip a beat — an opinion that may not have been shared by all. Arensky’s teacher, Rimsky-Korsakov, said in his memoirs, “Chronicle of My Musical Life,” that Arensky “would soon be forgotten.” But according to David Brown, in his book, “Tchaikovsky: The Final Years,” “In 1890 [Tchaikovsky] wrote to Arensky, à propos his opera, ‘A Dream on the Volga,’ a
letter of praise so warm and unqualified that the overwhelmed composer rushed from Moscow to Tchaikovsky’s home at Frolovskoye to express his thanks.” Arensky dedicated his second string quartet to Tchaikovsky, and its second movement is a set of variations on Tchaikovsky’s “Legend Christ in His Garden” from Tchaikovsky’s “Children’s Songs,” Op. 54. Creating such a CD was a multi-year process.
The record label Sono Luminus approached the Ying Quartet with the request for the Arensky CD and, as David says, “We had to decide if it was music that we felt strongly about.” While this is not the quartet’s first CD, the permanent nature of recording versus live performances has remained part of the group’s evaluation process. “It took us a number of years to build up the courage to want to record [our first CD],” says David. “We had been playing professionally for 10 years. We had been learning so much, our musicianship was developing, we weren’t sure that we wanted to record. It’s there for posterity.” The ongoing changes to the recorded-music industry were also a consideration. “The rules are being remade,” says David. “There was a time when recordings were only done by the biggest companies of the biggest-named musicians, and they were the gatekeepers.” As a next logical step, the Ying Quartet played some of Arensky’s work in concert, performing the String Quartet No. 1 in Rochester in the fall of 2010 and the String Quartet No. 2 the following spring. On
October 17, 2010, the Yings performed Arensky’s String Quartet No. 1 at Kilbourn Hall to a standing-room-only crowd. It was the quartet’s first Rochester concert with its newest member, violinist Ayano Ninomiya, and the Arensky was the first piece on the program. My scribbled notes from the concert began, “1st rip she was off!” and, “How can she produce so much sound?” At the end of the first movement, “Allegro,” the audience broke ranks and applauded out of turn. (What that audience will want to know is that the new CD recording is an even deeper interpretation of the piece and really shows off how well the group has come to work together since Ninomiya joined in 2010.) Once the group had put in extra practice and live performances, the quartet headed into the recording studio for a solid week. “We start at 9:30 or 10 in the morning, take a little lunch break, and play until we can’t really concentrate any more,” says David of the recording process. For the musicians, who were grabbing a grape or a handful of trail mix between takes, it was bows to the grindstone. When recording, the Ying Quartet doesn’t typically do more than about three takes in a row of a particular movement or section. “To be perfect is one thing and that’s great,” says David, “but perfect but dry and lifeless would be equally as bad to us.” During the recording sessions, quartet
members would occasionally go back into the recording booth to listen to some of the playbacks. “It’s not your sound,” says David, “It’s the recorded sound. The microphones are cruel and honest to the point of nakedness. If you don’t play well together, it’s not going to help you.” As with too many takes, the Ying Quartet does not like too much editing, which can “ruin the flow” if there is too much cutting and pasting, David says. “We’re trying super hard on every single take, so we’re not objective.” That’s where the producer comes in to play, the trusted advisor who listens to the tracks, takes notes, and uses his judgment of how the recording sessions are progressing. “I’ve seen him back there — he’s got a whole pack of colored pencils,” says David. “We rely a lot on his judgment and perception of how we’re doing. He’s the one who is going to pick which takes are used in production.” I asked whether winning a Grammy for the Arensky CD had crossed his mind (the quartet previously won a Grammy in 2006, and has been nominated several other times), but David remains humble. “In any given year, there are a lot of deserving musicians,” says David. “We’ve been incredibly lucky in terms of those awards. I find myself being surprised every time.”

ART EXHIBITS | Ceramic Shows
Plates and bowls, a ship wheel, and even a scaled-down mansion, all made from clay. Right now you can see all of that and more in two ceramics shows currently on exhibit in Rochester. The Firehouse Gallery at Genesee Pottery is currently hosting the “History in the Making VI” exhibit (pictured) through Saturday, October 29. The exhibit showcases works by upand-coming artists and seasoned veterans that attempt to connect historic and contemporary ideas. “Form, color, and surface can be simultaneously fresh and time-honored,” as the gallery’s site points out. Genesee Pottery is located in the Genesee Center for the Arts (713 Monroe Ave.). For gallery hours and more information visit geneseearts.org. Meanwhile, in the Monroe Community College Mercer Gallery, famed ceramic artist John Zimmerman will be displaying his recent works in an exhibit entitled “Historical Corruptions.” Zimmerman makes connections between the past and present by utilizing “symbols and metaphors that are intentionally odd and contrary.” Zimmerman’s exhibit will be on display through Friday, October 14. Mercer Gallery is located in Building 12 at the MCC Brighton campus, 1000 E. Henrietta Road.

LECTURE | OREN LYONS
Oren Lyons (pictured) is Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Onondaga Nation, a member of the Council of North American Aboriginal Nations, and a sought-after speaker on climate change and other topics (he has addressed the United Nations General Assembly). On Wednesday, October 19, Lyons will come to Rochester for the second of three presentations in the 2011 Native American Lecture Series, a partnership between Friends of Ganondagan and the Center for Service-Learning and the Religious Studies Department at Nazareth College. Lyons will present “The Natural World: Our Responsibility as Human Beings,” which will cover humanity’s connections to the natural world, and the repercussions that result from neglecting our responsibilities to it. The final lecture in the 2011 series will feature Dr. Theresa Maresca of the Mohawk Nation speaking on “Healing & Balance in the Haudenosaunee Culture,” and will take place Thursday, November 3. The Lyons lecture will take place 7-9 p.m. at the Shults Center at Nazareth College, 4245 East Ave. Tickets cost $20-$30. For more information visit ganondagan.org. — BY ERIC REZSNYAK

LECTURE | SIGNMARK
Signmark is the stage name of Marko Vuoriheimom (pictured), a deaf Finnish recording artist with the mission of bringing together hearing and deaf communities around the world through hip-hop. Signmark performs in ASL while his partner, Brandon, speaks for hearing audiences, making his performances bilingual. Signmark was the first deaf person in the world to land a recording contract, has released two albums and a book about his life, and was a finalist in the Eurovision Song Competition. On Thursday, October 13, Signmark will appear as part of the Rochester School for the Deaf’s “Adventures in Education” series with his presentation, “What Do You Mean By Impossible?” at the Rochester School for the Deaf, 1545 St. Paul St. The evening will include signed and sung performances in ASL and English, as well as Signmark’s thoughts on traveling the world as an advocate for deaf rights and deaf culture. The night begins with an hors d’oeuvres and dessert reception at 5 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $20 for presentation only, $45 for presentation and the reception.

Literary Events SPECIAL EVENT | Home Movie Day
Dancing on the soccer field wearing a goalie helmet, going berserk aftering opening my Lego Transformer set and matching hat for Christmas, learning to ride a “two-wheeler” and crashing in to the neighbor’s hedges — these are a few of my childhood experiences that were caught on film. Sure, some of your family’s homemade videos might be embarrassing, but many do not realize that these home movies are an important documentation of our cultural history. The George Eastman House and the University of Rochester are inviting the public to partake in their events for the Ninth Annual International Home Movie Day. On Saturday, October 15, 2-5 p.m. home videos from the Rochester community will be screened in the UR Simon School/Warner School building. Dig up your old home videos from the attic and bring them to the event for screenings and discussions (film inspection and drop off runs noon2 p.m.). Admission to the event is free, but donations will be accepted. For more information, call 271-3361, or visit homemovieday.com. — BY ERIC LACLAIR

A political campaign, a battle for the soul [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“The Ides of March” (R), directed by George Clooney Now playing
Possibly the most relevant and timely film to appear in this highly political year, “The Ides of March” reflects a good deal of contemporary history, featuring events and characters drawn from a recognizable current reality. The movie deals with the days leading up to the vote in the Democratic presidential primary in Ohio, where the governor of Pennsylvania, Michael Morris (George Clooney), opposes Senator Pullman (Michael Mantell) of Arkansas. Unlike most
Henrietta 18 424-3090 525 Marketplace Dr. 50/50: 1:45, 4:45, 7:25, 10; also continues on page 26
political pictures, however, it concentrates on the people who run the campaign rather than the candidate, who even if George Clooney plays him, occupies a relatively minor role. The plot revolves around the professional and ultimately, the moral choices confronting the candidate’s media consultant and press secretary, Stephen Myers (Ryan Gosling), only 30 years old but already successful in a rough-and-tumble game played in a difficult arena. He works directly under the campaign manager, Paul Zara (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a tough-talking, grizzled veteran of the political wars who at times serves as his mentor, at others his competitor, and at others something like his enemy. Unlike many political operatives, Myers regards his work for this particular candidate as more than just a job — he believes in the man and thinks the country needs him. Myers encounters his great dilemma when the opponent’s campaign manager, Tom Duffy (Paul Giamatti), calls him and invites him to a private meeting. Duffy praises his talent and his work

and invites him to jump to his man’s campaign because Morris, though ahead in the polls, cannot win. He tells Myers that the right-wing hate mongers, including Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, plan to encourage their drooling minions to vote in the open primary for Pullman because they want a candidate they can defeat (remember those same tactics by the same people in 2008?). While Myers ponders the problem, wonders about his future, and worries about his candidate’s chances under the onslaught of the tactic, both campaigns fight for the endorsement of a powerful senator, an act that would practically guarantee the nomination. The senator wants a cabinet post in exchange for that endorsement, but Morris, a man of principle, sticks to his resolution not to trade appointments for political or monetary favors. That conflict between integrity and compromise becomes one of several examples of the picture’s major themes, which force several characters, especially Stephen Myers, to choose between their ideals and their ambition; it also leads to the uncomfortable conclusion that ultimately all the characters end up selling their souls. In keeping with its subject and following an increasingly common practice, the picture includes a good deal of footage of real people reporting on its events. Everybody watches the television news to learn the results of the networks’ various polls and to observe the commentary of the quasi-hysterical Chris Matthews, for

example, along with other familiar figures, like Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow. The location shooting in Cincinnati emphasizes the concept that the characters conduct an actual political campaign in an ordinary American city, enhancing the documentary nature of many of its scenes and sequences. Not surprisingly for an actor turned director, George Clooney concentrates his script and focuses his camera mostly on people, a technique that succeeds best with those two terrific character actors, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Giamatti. Each man in his separate way overwhelms the bland, softspoken Ryan Gosling, the alleged star of the film. Hoffman’s sweaty, paunchy, rumpled (he’s good at rumpled) appearance fits the weary cynicism of the campaign manager, and Giamatti as his slick opposite number projects a sinister brilliance in his manipulation of Gosling’s character. The concentration on the actors, the frequent two-person scenes, and the sharp and credible dialogue remind us that “The Ides of March” began its life as a play, “Farragut North.” That source also leads to some scenes that cry out for cutting, some excessive talkiness, and a paradoxical tendency for actors to instruct the audience by reporting on events the picture never shows. Aside from those relatively minor difficulties, however, the movie achieves a rare mixture of convincing reality and powerful tension; simply put, it’s one of the best and most relevant films about American politics ever made.
It’s little wonder that there aren’t very many films exploring the role of religion in modern American life. Hollywood usually has trouble with anything that’s not black and white, and few topics are tinted in more shades of grey than an individual’s faith. Movies in recent years have been particularly unfair to the conservative Christians, largely painting the religious right as narrow-minded Bible-thumpers, if not treating them with overt, cartoony condescension. And no one seems to be bothered by this insensitivity, even though it’s knuckle-dragging bigotry on par with stereotyping all Muslims as wild-eyed zealots or Jewish people as penny-pinching and greedy. That’s why Vera Farmiga’s directorial debut “Higher Ground” is so refreshing; it respectfully portrays a born-again Christian woman as a complex human being, wrestling with desires and doubts, good intentions and uncharitable thoughts.

“Jesus is a gentleman, children. He’s not going to come barging into your heart without an invitation,” the pastor tells the kids at vacation bible school. Young Corinne (McKenzie Turner) tentatively raises her hand and admits to salvation, but you nonetheless get the sense that Corinne doesn’t so much believe as really, really wants to. Time goes on, though, and teen Corinne (Taissa Farmiga, looking like a cross between her big sister and Botticelli’s Venus) gets wrapped up in her musician boyfriend, putting dreams of literary stardom on hold for a shotgun wedding and new baby. And, as is often the way, Corinne comes back around to religion after a close call with tragedy, chalking her lucky break up to God’s blessing. Most of “Higher Ground” unfolds from the perspective of adult Corinne, played by the director herself. Corinne dutifully attends prayer services and cares for her family, but it’s clear that she’s looking for something more. Corinne is envious of the uninhibited faith enjoyed by her best friend Annika (lusty Dagmara Dominczyk steals all of her scenes), who even speaks in tongues. Corinne is encouraged by her decidedly patriarchal congregation to worship freely... but not too freely. “You came very close to preaching just now,” the pastor’s wife gently scolds Corinne, who dared share her feelings during a meeting. It’s Corinne’s inability to reconcile her restless brain with her yearning heart that drives a rift between her and her community, as well as her husband (an excellent Joshua Leonard, “Humpday”), unsure of how to deal with his increasingly distant wife’s crisis of faith. “Higher Ground” is based on Carolyn Briggs’ 2002 memoir “This Dark World”; Briggs, along with Tim Metcalfe (“Kalifornia”), adapted her story for the intelligent, heartfelt screenplay, which Farmiga directs without obvious agenda or judgment. She makes the occasional rookie mistake — the bawdy fantasy
sequences are dissonant and jarring — but the “Up In The Air” Oscar nominee has a natural, leisurely hand with actors, and the scenes unfold in an organic way. Cinematographer Michael McDonough (he also shot the blue and moody “Winter’s Bone”) captures everything in a sort of 70’s golden glow, adding to the passive, mellow vibe against which Corinne begins to rail. Aided by a stellar supporting cast, including Oscar nominee John Hawkes as Corinne’s dad, Farmiga turns in a thoughtful and generous performance as a woman not content to let her questions go unanswered. She gets one or two chances to let loose, but mostly she watches and listens, letting the pain and confusion, along with the momentary joys, register across her beatific face in nearly imperceptible flickers. Creatively speaking, religion may be the least safe subject going; anyone who wants to say something truly personal will almost certainly offend someone else. But that might make it the ideal theme for self-expression, since both faith and art come from within. “If you don’t look good, we don’t look
good,” he would always say in the commercials for the hair-care products that bear his name. Now in his 80s and as dashing as ever, Vidal Sassoon is the focus of Craig Teper’s “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie,” a fascinating portrait of the proverbial self-made man that falls just short of documentary status due to its fluffy, indulgent nature. Sassoon recounts his unlikely success, from his working-class Jewish roots in Shepherd’s Bush to the toast of Bond Street, as women in swinging 60’s London clamored for one of his geometric, Bauhaus-inspired cuts. Interviews with contemporaries and wonderful archival footage attest to his nearly unprecedented influence on style, but the most insightful reminisces come from the old charmer himself, still making us look good.

Lavish Living on Lakeview 38 Lakeview Park If original historic details, fixtures, and finishes pique your interest, then 38 Lakeview Park will blow you away. This 1910 Colonial Revival style house is a snapshot in time. Hardwood floors, original light fixtures, unpainted moldings and doors, historic wall treatments, and historic windows are just a sampling of the beauties you will find.
Accessed via the central staircase or the rear service stair, the second floor has five bedrooms, two hall closets, and two bathrooms. The bedrooms feature hardwood floors and good closet space. The finished attic offers a blank canvas and interesting lines with a large front room, two additional smaller rooms, and a bath.
After passing through the entrance vestibule, you enter the center hallway, which is awash in varnished woodwork. Straight ahead is an ornate staircase. Beyond the stairs, an archway transitions to the more private living spaces, including a study with fireplace and leaded glass windows.
The basement of this 4851 square foot house is—predictably—huge.
To your right and left at the front of the house, wide, columned entryways with detailed molding frame the music room and living room. A parquet floor with inlaid border and decorative plaster ceiling in the music room make this a perfect space in which to welcome (and wow) guests. Across the hall, the living room features a bay window, fireplace and pocket doors that open to the dining room. With a coffered ceiling, bay window, and original light fixtures, the dining room is the star of the show. A small conservatory space, lit with huge, multi-paned windows, brightens the room and offers a perfect spot for growing plants or just basking in the sun. Even the kitchen has its own retro charm with mid-century cabinet handles. The large room offers plenty of cabinets, storage, and open space. An enclosed porch off the kitchen could function as a mudroom.
The house is sited on an attractive lot with a large front yard. The driveway leads to a small private backyard with a two-car garage. The Maplewood neighborhood offers both architectural and natural scenic beauty, along with affordable housing and an active neighborhood association. Nearby amenities include the Maplewood Family YMCA, Maplewood Park, and Virgil I. Grissom School No. 7. Perhaps one of the more exciting features of the neighborhood is its listing as a historic district in the National Register of Historic Places. This honorary designation qualifies homeowners for the New York State Historic Homeowner Rehabilitation Tax Credit. This unique house is listed at $159,000.
