Reservations for June ‘Camping at the Art Park’ now open

This spring, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park (SQHAP) is once again giving the public the opportunity to camp among the sculptures and enjoy the park at night.

Located at 3883 Stone Quarry Road in Cazenovia, SQHAP offers a unique environment for artists to create and exhibit their work in natural and gallery settings. It also provides space for the community to explore and appreciate the natural world and interact with art and artists.

Reservations for “Camping at the Art Park” are now open for every weekend in June.

Campsite reservations include Friday and Saturday nights and cost $50/weekend. Up to two tents and six people are permitted per campsite (no RVs or campers).

Camping at the Art Park was first proposed by SQHAP visiting artist Martin Hogue in June 2017 as a temporary installation to broaden the range of experiences available to visitors.

With the park already open 365 days a year from dawn to dusk, Hogue saw the addition of camping as a unique way for visitors to spend 48 uninterrupted hours within the park landscape. Additionally, as they tend to their campsites and interact with fellow campers, the campers themselves become part of the art on display for other visitors to experience.

“Camping at the Art Park is part performance, part sculpture, part outdoor adventure, and at its core, it’s a lot of fun,” said SQHAP CEO Emily Zaengle. “It makes visible the practices and customs so inherent to camping. Campsites and the way each camper arranges their tent and gear become part of the art at the park.”

Hogue is an associate professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University.

Trained as an architect and landscape architect, Hogue has been researching the topic of camping for several years.

His most recent work, which centers around camping culture in the US, examines the discrepancies between the American ideal of ruggedness and independence and the desire for an increasingly sophisticated range of utilities and conveniences.

Hogue said his interest in camping goes back to the summer of 2000, when he first camped near the Badlands of South Dakota, equipped with a tent and a sleeping bag lent to him by a friend.

“When I saw the KOA sign looming in the distance, I decided to check it out,” he recalled. “I had expected to be let loose on the grounds to claim a quiet, shady spot on my own, but instead a destination was prescribed for me by the campground’s attendant, who carefully circled the location of my campsite on a printed map. I’m an architect by training and interested in the spatial planning of places — not only buildings, but larger landscapes too. The map indicated there were numbered RV sites and tent sites, bathrooms, a swimming pool, a miniature golf area, an off-leash dog area. It even showed streets with names. This all felt and looked like a small village. I was admittedly a little surprised, but also intrigued. Were all campgrounds like this?”

Since that experience, Hogue has been attempting to understand the history of recreational camping in the US, and in the process connecting the experiences of early recreational campers in the Adirondacks at the turn of the 19th century with the densely packed campgrounds now common in state and national parks.

His research and drawings have been displayed in solo exhibits at over 25 venues across the United States. His book “Thirtyfour Campgrounds” was published by The MIT Press in 2016. His next book, “Making Camp,” will be published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2023.

Camping at the Art Park was Hogue’s first opportunity to propose and design his own campground.

When developing the project, he carefully selected four secluded campsites — Secret Garden, Ash Tree, Sugar Bush, and Paperbark Maple Tree — that highlighted “unique spatial opportunities” such as a meadow and a wooded area for example and were in proximity of key sculptures or dramatic vistas. Each site was marked by a bright blue table with a small sign.

According to Zaengle, the campsites will be in the same spots this year.

“The sculptures around these sites have changed a bit over time, but the location of the four campsites is the same,” she said.

The sites are all situated within a few minutes walking distance of a main hilltop service hub featuring a parking area, restrooms, drinking water, wheelbarrows to transport equipment/gear, trash disposal, and a communal campfire surrounded by Adirondack chairs.

In addition to considering optimal campsite locations, Hogue also addressed the challenges of “scale and legibility” when designing his campsite.

“Given the scale of the 104-acre site, can this intimate campground be read within the larger landscape of the Art Park?” he asked. “I have used picnic tables to mark the individual sites and painted all related infrastructure of the campground — tables, chairs, map, signage, flashlights, wheelbarrow, garbage cans, information pamphlets, even t-shirts — in the same bright shade of cyan to enhance their legibility as a system inside the park. With its numbered campsites and many icons, the [map] hints at the typical graphics of campground maps nationwide; it provides a way to take in the entire project at a single glance, and [it] is the first document handed to visitors to orient them to the project when they check in on Friday night.”

Following the inaugural Camping at the Art Park, SQHAP offered the initiative again in June 2018 and June 2019.

“We did not offer it in 2020 or 2021 due to the uncertainty of the pandemic,” noted Zaengle. “In 2020, Camping at the Art Park received a design award from the American Society of Landscape Architects Upstate New York Chapter.”

Zaengle added that the event has also received positive feedback from campers each year and that people appreciate the opportunity to be in the park at night, enjoy the stars, and meet fellow campers around the campfire.

“We have had a lot of people tell us they used Camping at the Art Park as a way to try out camping and ease into the idea of sleeping outdoors in a tent,” she said. “We find that families really enjoy the event as well. We typically book all the campsites every weekend.”

According to Zaengle, Hogue returns to SQHAP as a visiting artist every year that camping is offered to replace, repair, and/or repaint the tables and chairs and update the event brochure.

Each weekend is facilitated by an assigned host who is an experienced Camping at the Art Park participant and is responsible for answering questions and starting the shared campfire every morning and evening.

“Martin helps host and also helps find other people to host,” said Zaengle. “Martin invests his visiting artist stipend into the materials and promotions for this event.”

Campsites can be reserved at sqhap.org/happenings/camping-at-the-art-park.

At the end of the month of June, the communal fire pit will be dismantled, the picnic tables will be returned to the top of the hill, and apart from the outlines of tents in the grass, very little evidence of the campground will remain.

Hogue explained that one of his objectives was to ensure that the project can be installed and uninstalled quickly with modest means and minimal impact on the park.

Town of Nelson completes boardwalk trail through Nelson Swamp

CAZENOVIA — In May, the Town of Nelson completed a new boardwalk trail in the Nelson Swamp behind the town hall.

The trail, which runs through town-owned land, is part of the proposed Nelson Walkability Project. The initiative will eventually create a two-plus mile ADA compliant walking loop through Town of Nelson parkland, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Nelson Swamp Unique Area, and the Nelson hamlet.

According to Town Planning Board Chairman John Dunkle, the grassroots project started about five years ago when a group of community members formed the Nelson Swamp Trail Committee with the goal of determining the optimal location for a walking trail in Nelson.

The committee included Dunkle, who served as chairman, Jeff Palmer, Bob Carr, Dr. Mildred Irizarry, DEC Senior Forester Gregory Owens, local sportsman Charles Pace, Town Councilor Jen Marti, Nelson Co-historian Fay Lyon, and town planning board members Sandy Palmer and Jim St Pierre.

“It was the coolest group of people,” said Marti. “It was such a nice mix — we had hunters, we had biologists, we had [people like me] who lived nearby and enjoyed it previously. It was so much fun scoping it out . . . We started looking at areas of the swamp on the north and south sides of Route 20 where it might be feasible to make a walking path. We looked at a couple trail possibilities on the south side, but they weren’t really conducive. They were either too much work, or too close to an existing trail or private property, or that sort of thing.”

Marti, who lived next to the Odeon on Nelson Road when she first moved to town, eventually suggested that the committee turn its attention to the land behind the town hall.

“In the early 90s, I used to walk out behind my house into the swamp, and it was fantastic,” she recalled. “Back then, snowmobiling was huge and there were bridges built over the creek. As a result of all that, you could walk back there essentially all year round, because the areas where the [snowmobiles ran] stayed packed down. That was what I did every day between [about 1992 and 1996].”

Marti added that when the sidewalks were installed along Route 20 in 2018, the committee realized the potential for a loop.

“You can start at the town office building, walk through the swamp to Route 20, and then you can take the sidewalk back into town,” she said. “They had even extended the sidewalk further than it would have been otherwise to accommodate the potential swamp trail that came out at Route 20.”

Since then, local citizens, DEC, NYS Department of Transportation, the Madison County Highway Department, SUNY ESF, and the Town of Nelson have all contributed to various components of the project.

“Much of the work to date has been donated, including some of the materials and labor for the boardwalk construction by River Rock Dock,” said Dunkle.

The next major component of the loop, which will be completed by the DEC, is a boardwalk and trail on state land from Route 20 to the Nelson-owned section of the trail.

According to the DEC, both the Nelson Swamp Trail Committee and the Nelson Streetscape Committee worked with the department to develop the concept and preliminary design.

The segment, which is funded independently through the Environmental Protection Fund, is 1,520 feet in total, with 840 feet proposed for boardwalk over wetland areas and 680 feet of hardened trail.

In the Nelson Swamp Unique Area, visitors of the trail will pass along the upper reaches of Chittenango Creek and cross both open and forested wetland, including a northern white cedar swamp, meadows, and the riparian zone of Chittenango Creek. Interpretive signage and overlook areas will provide opportunities for visitors to experience the area’s unique flora and fauna.

“Since 1986, DEC has worked closely with the Nelson and Cazenovia communities to sustain the unique natural and cultural resources of Nelson Swamp while at the same time providing opportunities for public access,” said DEC Region 7 Director Matthew Marko. “The Nelson Swamp Trail Project is a continuation of this partnership and an effort to strengthen the connection between these two communities and their local forests and wetlands.”

Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2022.

“At that point, the infamous ‘sidewalk to nowhere’ on Route 20 will actually go somewhere, as planned,” said Dunkle.

Once the DEC section is complete, the trail will be incorporated into the Mad Cow 5K race route.

Proceeds from this year’s Aug. 7 Mad Cow will support completion of the trail.

To complete the entire loop, the Town of Nelson will complete the final section of trail from Nelson Road through the town hall property.

According to Marti, the town is in the process of donating the Nelson-owned section of the loop — which starts behind the town hall — to the state.

“That removes the liability for the town and puts [the land] under the state’s DEC management program,” she explained.

The town councilor also said she is working her way through the DEC application process to establish a Friends of Nelson Recreation volunteer group that would help maintain the new loop, as well as playgrounds and any future trails in Nelson.

According to Nelson Town Supervisor Jim Cunningham, Nelson Swamp is a valuable resource that is worth protecting, maintaining and exploring for a number of reasons.

“There’s a special thrill about wild places – a feeling of discovery,” Cunningham said. “Wetlands offer a wide range of ecosystem benefits. Nelson’s unique swamp is one of the most biodiversity rich regions in Central New York.”

Cunningham explained that wetlands provide flood control, improve water quality, and store large quantities of carbon, helping to moderate global climate conditions.

“One of the reasons Chittenango Creek has such great water quality is that the headwaters flow through the Nelson Swamp, cleaning the water along the way,” he said. “Some of the greatest values of [Nelson Swamp] are the plants and animals . . . The new elevated trail protects the extremely fragile ecology, creating an interesting, walkable loop within minutes of the busy Nelson Route 20 community. Nature-related recreation is the fastest growing [sector] of the tourism industry. Once the DEC has completed their section of the loop, our sidewalks will connect not only to this area of outstanding visual quality, but also to the town’s businesses, our town park, and the recently donated pollinator gardens. Real estate analytics Redfin and Zillow have both found statistical correlations between walkability and home values. People look for communities that offer physical activities that connect neighbors, which together affect the physical, mental and spiritual health of the people in the community.”

Fayetteville native wins big at Indie Series Awards

FAYETTEVILLE — Fayetteville native Jason Cicci has never been one to sit back and wait for opportunities to come his way.

That being so, the wherewithal to share his artistry regardless of how many callbacks he receives has sent him down the independent route as an actor, writer and producer—a route that has yielded gratifying results.

Most recently, a pair of web shows created by Cicci together secured 16 nominations and six wins at the 12th Annual Indie Series Awards, a ceremony held this past month in Los Angeles to celebrate excellence in scripted internet entertainment.

That evening, his digital series “Cady Did” was nominated a dozen times, later taking home the awards for Best Comedy Series, Best Production Design for Scott Michael Salame, Best Lead Actress in a Comedy for its co-producer and star Cady Huffman, and best guest actor and actress roles for Scott Adsit and Joyce Van Patten respectively.

“We can’t believe how great the show turned out,” Cicci said. “It came together so beautifully, and we’re still sort of in awe of it even though we worked hard to make it.”

Conceived by Cicci as a fictionalized vehicle for Huffman’s humorous antics, “Cady Did” follows the titular character as she distances from the fallout of an on-camera outburst gone viral. She ends up running a public access channel after venturing back to her hometown of Hackettsville, a made-up place that resembles parts of Upstate New York.

“Even in the show, there are some jokes about how it’s always winter and how there never seems to be any sun,” Cicci said.

That series features not only Huffman, who appeared in “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and the Broadway production of “The Producers,” but also the fellow Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehardt and the Emmy-nominated actress Veanne Cox.

It was also the project that inspired Cicci and his producing partner John Cramer to start Make Your Show, a production company that develops original, personalized showcases for its performers.

From that point, the idea arose for “Searching for Sylvie,” an 11-episode web series devised for Susan Jeffries that to her liking didn’t relegate her to the role of a grandmother in the background or a woman on her deathbed.

With separate nominations in this year’s Best Direction, Best Actress in a Comedy, and Best Comedy Series categories, “Searching for Sylvie” nabbed the Best Supporting Actor award for David Lavine’s portrayal of a “fastidious, by-the-books” administrator at a school where Sylvie gets a job.

“To be recognized for projects you initiate yourself is really something special,” Cicci said. “When you’re making these indie shows, you really count on the creative power of the actors and any collaborator to make the story that much more resonant with people.”

An actor since his childhood, Cicci took part in scholastic productions year to year as a student in the Fayetteville-Manlius School District, which he said accommodated a welcoming, close-knit arts community.

“I can’t say enough about growing up in Fayetteville,” Cicci said. “It’s such a beautiful place, and it was a great training ground for what I would end up doing with my life.”

Desiring an outlet for the summers, he and his friends started their own community production company as high school seniors for aspiring actors ages 12 to 20, aptly named At That Stage. Along the way, Cicci gained firsthand experience when it came to designing sets, finding costumes, and raising enough money before opening night.

He went on to participate in numerous productions during his time with the Syracuse University drama department, and once he graduated from the college in 1993, he felt as prepared as could be to dive into the business and lifestyle of acting, singing, dancing and movement.

In the ensuing years, while facing higher stakes and learning how to move on from rejection, he established another company called Monday Morning Productions, thus cementing a greater foothold in the industry alongside a group of former classmates.

With that company, Cicci gravitated toward on-camera storytelling as a lower-cost, better-documented alternative to theater productions, one that wouldn’t need to guarantee that the audience seats would be filled.

In his approach to crafting 22-minute episodic scripts, he drew influence from “true-to-life” sitcoms like “Cheers,” “All in the Family” and “Moonlighting” as well as the wordplay in the works of Neil Simon and Woody Allen.

Prototypical performances of his two-season comedy “He’s With Me” allowed him to test the rhythm of his writing in front of West Village crowds, and to challenge himself more, he thought it best to tighten up the plot lines and boil them down to around 10 minutes, a format he decided to stick with.

“He’s With Me” wound up being an award winner in its own right, not to mention his archway to meeting Huffman, Debra Jo Rupp of “That ‘70s Show” fame, and visual artist Bob Giraldi, with whom he has made several short films.

Now residing in Fairfield, Connecticut, Cicci has additionally taught workshops at Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Bronx that touch on such topics as crowdfunding, comfort with on-camera acting, and the audition process.

A Comprehensive Guide to the Elden Ring runes Ranni the Witch Sidequest

You’ve probably already realized this, but Elden Ring runes are a massively popular game. It’s huge, like, really huge. Apart from the fact that it’s a massive open world, there’s also a plethora of things to do in it such as killing monsters and collecting weapons as well as completing sidequests. Ranni the Witch introduces the largest optional quest in the game, a mission that will take you through both beautiful and noxious environments in equal measure.

Ranni’s quest is worthwhile for three reasons. First, it is a unique opportunity. First and foremost, you’ll learn some extremely valuable information. First and foremost, you’ll be rewarded with some even more valuable loot. Finally, it will have an impact on the number of different endings that are available to you. It is necessary to have unlocked the Liurnia of the Lakes area before you can begin the quest line. To begin Ranni’s quest, travel to the northwest of Liurnia, passing through Carnia Manor on your way there. If you defeat the boss of that dungeon, you’ll unlock a door that leads to a field brimming with glintstone crystals.

This area is guarded by three towers and one dragon who patrol the area. Ranni’s Rise can be found to the west of the field, past the dragon, and to the north of the dragon. If you climb to the top, you’ll find Ranni in her chamber, where she’ll ask you to assist her in some way. Accept her request and then proceed downstairs to meet her three other servants, Iji, Blaidd, and Seluvis, who will be waiting for you.

Blaidd is the most important non-player character in this story. It is possible that the wolfman will inform you that he wishes to inspect Nokron, the Eternal City, and that you should meet him at the Siofra underground passageway. That’s all right. This is something that can be done, but it is completely optional. You’ll need to defeat Starscourge Radahn before you can begin the quest in earnest. Wishing you the best of luck!

Once you’ve defeated him, a falling star will crash into the Lands Between, destroying everything. Fortunately, it will take place at the exact location where you will be able to travel to Nokron. You will now be able to begin Ranni the Witch’s quest as a result.

Nokron is known as the Eternal City.

The Fingerslayer Blade for Ranni is the ultimate goal of Ranni’s exploration of Nokron. A lot of useful loot will be dropped along the way, including the Mimic Tear summon and a large number of Grave and Ghost Gloveworts, which can be used to level up your summon ashes as you progress. To begin, you’ll need to find your way into Nokron and then find the entrance to the city.

Travel to Fort Haight West, where the Site of Grace is located. As you ride Torrent up the path, you’ll notice a cluster of floating rocks in the sky, which you can use to your advantage. The Lands Between were struck by a falling star at that location. When you reach the bottom of the floating rubble, you’ll discover a pathway leading to Nokron, the Eternal City. Through half-destroyed buildings, across rooftops in an abyss, and across a fallen tower that serves as a bridge into another massive building, you’ll make your way through the game. You’ll find a Site of Grace if you jump through the open window and proceed down the path.

To get to the town square, run through it, defeating all of the bad guys and collecting as many goodies as you can, and then descend the flight of stairs located at the northern end of the neighborhood. Following the path, you’ll be treated to a panoramic view of Nokron, and then you’ll come across a yellow magic wall, which indicates the presence of a boss area. The Mimic Tear, which is an exact replica of your character, can be found in this location. If you defeat it, you’ll be rewarded with the Mimic Tear summon, which, when powered up a few levels, will prove to be a tremendous asset.

The Site of Grace is accessible after you have defeated the Mimic Tear enemy. You’ll have to cross a bridge after you’ve visited the Site of Grace.(Please keep in mind that you can now ride Torrent.)Eventually, you’ll find yourself in a large open area populated by blade-wielding beasts — the worst kind of beast imaginable. Dealing with them is a separate quest in and of itself, so just ignore them for now. If you continue down the path, you will come across one of the beasts on a hill next to a statue. As she sings, she will be surrounded by a blue aura. To get to the path on the left of the hill where the singing beast is, take Torrent to the end of the road. You’ll find a Site of Grace just around the corner if you keep going.

To get to the rooftop you can see on the right, you must jump. Run along the sidewalk, then jump down onto the ledge of the next building, then run around the back to the other side of the building to escape. A graphic will appear informing you that you have entered the Sacred Ground of the Night, and when you jump down onto the pathway, two blobs will transform into Silver Tear warriors who will attack you as you run. Simply following the beaten path will get you there: run to the other side of the neighborhood you’re currently in, run along the rooftops, and you’ll come across a makeshift bridge that will lead you into a cathedral. Get inside and defeat the bad guys. Then exit the building and go downstairs to find a Site of Grace.

You’ll be confronted with a long path that’s strewn with black sludge monsters. Beat them all, or simply run past cheap Elden Ring items, into the large building at the end of the path to your destination. A treasure chest with the Fingerslayer Blade can be found inside.
