The show, from Syracuse University, features portraits of and by an amazing lineup of heavy-hitting American artists — Berenice Abbot, Ansel Adams, Milton Avery, Leonard Baskin, Winslow Homer, Alex Katz, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Edward Steichen, Norman Rockwell and Chuck Close — as well as legendary masters Paul Cezanne, Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot and famed Swedish artist Anders Zorn.

  • Finally, a memorial to the 21 boys who were burned to death at Wrightsville in '59

    It has been 59 years since 21 teen-aged boys incarcerated at the so-called Negro Boys Industrial School were burned to death in their locked dormitory. The Times wrote about the event in 2008, after the brother and mother of one of the boys approached the Times looking for someone to remember the event, and headlined the story "Stirring the Ashes." But on Saturday, a monument to the boys was placed at Haven of Rest Cemetery, where 14 of the boys were buried.
