The Third Thursday (Th3) opens Sept. 20 for the 2012-13 season
Th3 (The Third Thursday) has announced the start of the 2012-13 season, Sept. 20, bringing cultural and visual arts events and attractions to the Syracuse and greater Central New York community.
The season will begin with numerous exhibitions and events related to “The Other New York: 2012,” a community-wide, multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among 14 venues in Syracuse. This ambitious project aims to highlight the rich talent of artists across Upstate New York, with a special focus on Central New York and the surrounding counties. TONY exhibitions will be presented at nine of the Th3 venues throughout the fall exhibition season.
Also this season, three new Th3 venues have been added: bc Restaurant, Syracuse Ceramic Guild and 601 Tully. Th3 (The Third Thursday) is a consortium of 22 Syracuse arts venues that coordinate free monthly visual arts events from 5-8 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month.
