Melinda Johnson wrote an excellent piece about the retirement of Geoffrey Navias, Artistic Director of Open Hand Theater, in 2015. We’re going to miss this creative visionary, but look forward to seeing what comes next for this theater and museum!
“SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Geoffrey Navias, artistic director and a founder of Open Hand Theater, will retire in May. For 34 years, Navias has been involved as a performer, writer, director, mask and puppet maker and administrator of the arts organization. He has overseen its transformation from its beginnings in a warehouse on Walton Street in Armory Square to its current landmark location in a former mansion on Syracuse’s northside. It is known as Open Hand Theater – At the Castle on North Salina Street.”

We had an amazing turnout of volunteers this Tuesday to denail timber for Salt Works! Many thanks to Stephen Terzolo and 40 Below for helping us organize the event. Soon those beams will be transformed into artisan furniture!
