TGIF Tours

Tour begins at 12:15. Start your weekend early with our Everson TGIF Tour, informative and fun tours led by various members of the Everson's talented staff - from the Director to the Registrar, each with a special point-of-view. After a 30 minute tour of Handmade: The Art of Susan Roth, stay to chat and eat your brown bag lunch with the Museum's pros in the newly opened Everson Lounge.

Artist Open

Artist Open exist to provide a space for expression, dialogue, and collaboration of local artists across disciplinary boundaries. Audiences will enjoy performances in visual art, poetry, screen writing, video, dance and music in an intimate, bistro-like setting. Artists share their work through presentations, gallery walks, video screenings and original works of art, and invite questions from audience members.

No Artists Open is currently scheduled.

Contemporary Film Series

The Everson Contemporary Film Series brings film as an art form to the Syracuse community and presents local, national and international film and video that would not otherwise be screened in Syracuse. The film series often includes guest filmmakers, outdoor screenings and student video presentations. The Contemporary Film Series is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council for the Arts, a state agency.
