The Other New York: 2012 is a community-wide, multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among fourteen 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. The project offers diverse arts venues and outdoor public spaces for contemporary creative expression on a scale not before seen in Syracuse. In addition, TONY: 2012 demonstrates the power of artistic partnerships to boost public awareness of the arts by presenting opportunities for the community to connect with exhibitions, programs, and events offered simultaneously throughout the city.

Alternative art spaces in the form of freight containers provide temporary exhibition/installation sites. The containers are strategically located in the city to link arts venues and encourage visitors to walk and experience art along the way.

TONY: 2012 is organized by the Everson Museum of Art in collaboration with ArtRage – The Norton Putter Gallery, Community Folk Art Center, Erie Canal Museum, Light Work, Onondaga Historical Association, PuntodeContacto/Point of Contact, Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, SUArt Galleries, Urban Video Project, The Warehouse Gallery, City of Syracuse and XL Projects.
