Avrakotos has been coordinator of ARTSwego for the past 10 years. [Carole Brzozowski] was appointed SU's arts presenter in 2008. Avrakotos is more traditional in her approach, producing a series of events and pushing the arts into the curriculum. Brzozowski has been focused on bringing artists to campus who often commit to short residencies and workshops that engage students in the creative process. "My job is to find artists who are new to Syracuse and who are interesting not just to me but also to a wide variety of people," Brzozowski says.Venue is another challenge. The largest auditorium at Oswego is the Waterman Theater with 500 seats. "Say you're trying to bring in Yo-Yo Ma," Avrakotos says. "That would be very difficult to present because you can only sell 500 seats. If you're talking about trying to sell enough tickets to offset the cost to bring somebody like that, it's not possible with 500 seats."Avrakotos and Brzozowski have both served on the board of the Cultural Resources Council and have become friends. They constantly compare notes. Both express a willingness to combine efforts to extend their reach. "Mary and I would be very interested in attempting a large-scale project to bring someone to our schools that neither alone can bring," Brzozowski says. "I don't know who that would be-maybe U2!"
