FREE Third Thursday admission 5:00–8:00pm
Join in conversation with Steffi Chappell, Curatorial Assistant and Dennis Connors, former Executive Director, Onondaga Historical Association for a walking tour of Art Within Art: The Everson at 50. Connors will examine the history and locations of the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts prior to its evolution into the Pei building in 1968 as the Everson, including how that history merged with a community desire, originating in the 1920s through 40s, to create a cultural civic center in Syracuse.
