Pei.  As the first museum devoted to collecting American art, the Everson uses this focus to make possible direct encounters with all art through its collections, exhibitions, scholarship, and educational programs. 

The operation of the Everson Museum of Art is made possible with funding from the Dorothy and Marshall M. Reisman Foundation, Syracuse University, County of Onondaga administered by CNY Arts, the Central New York Community Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, the Everson Board of Trustees and Everson Members' Council.
