SYRACUSE, NY (February 19, 2016) – The Everson Museum of Art is excited to announce a new event that’s sure to be fun for art and comedy lovers alike. Mystery at the Museum will take place on March 3 from 6.00 – 8.00pm. The event is $10 for Everson members and $15 for non-members. A cash bar and snacks will be available.

The evening will include both scripted and improvised performances by local actors portraying the suspects in a murder mystery. All of the accused are subjects of well-known paintings from the Everson collection and beyond, and audience members will have the chance to interact with the suspects as they try to uncover the culprit. Before the murderer is revealed, the audience will cast their vote for who they think committed the crime. A prize of a free Everson membership will be awarded at the end of the night to one clever audience member.

“This is not your typical evening at the Museum!” said Community and Public Relations Manager, Renee Storiale. “It is going to be a very unique experience that includes enjoying the talents of local comedic actors, socializing with fellow museum-goers, exploring the galleries and learning about some oddities of art history, as well.”

Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at
