From the Archives: The Museum Moves to James Street

On June 14, 1937, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (today the Everson Museum of Art), announced plans for an ambitious ten-day campaign to raise $75,000—equal to $1.4 million today—to purchase the Knights of Columbus building located at the intersection of James and State Street. The purchase would allow the Museum to move into its own building for the first time in its forty-year history. Click to learn how the Museum made the relocation a reality.

Who What When Where

On view through August 22, 2021

Who What When Where centers around a photographic series of the same name by internationally acclaimed Syracuse-based artist Carrie Mae Weems. Using the four fundamental words for narrative construction, Who What When Where explores how images are interpreted through the subjective lens of identity, place, time, and power. It spans a variety of media and decades and features works by more than fifty nationally and locally recognized artists. Who What When Where also showcases several recent acquisitions that bring new and much-needed perspectives to the Everson's collection.

Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête: Drawings by Beatrice Wood

Last Call! Closes August 8, 2021

Although known primarily for her lustrous ceramic vessels, legendary artist Beatrice Wood was a prolific drawer with a penchant for depicting sidelong glances and body language between couples (and thruples!). Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête is a celebration of Wood’s uncanny ability to capture the inherent drama of social interactions with a few deft strokes of her pen.

Everson Up-Close Artist Series

Conserving An Ancient Art

Thursday, August 12, 6:00pm

*Free to attend, pre-registration required

Do not miss this opportunity to hear from artist Carrie Mae Weems whose work inspired the current exhibition, Who What When Where. Her piece by the same name, first exhibited in 1998 in Weems’ solo exhibition at the Everson, features four large-format photographs printed on canvas, each combining text with a single image that references one of the foundational elements of narrative. Weems will discuss this piece in the context of the current climate in which perception is reality and misinformation has become a pervasive force in our lives.
