The Everson Extends Hours Starting December 5

Syracuse, NY (November 22, 2021): The Everson Museum of Art is pleased to announce that starting Sunday, December 5, it will extend its visiting hours.

After a reduction to a four-day schedule (Thursday-Sunday) due to the pandemic, the Everson will reintroduce Wednesdays back into the Museum’s visitor week with pay-what-you-wish admission. The Museum will also start opening earlier—11:00am Wednesday through Friday, and 10:00am on Saturday and Sunday. These new morning hours will correspond with the daily start of service for Louise, the Everson’s new farm-and-kiln to table café opening early next year.

Thursday evening hours, traditionally reserved for the third Thursday of the month will now be extended to every Thursday until 8:00pm. These evenings will offer a variety of programming that will include educational classes, performances, wine tastings, guest speakers, guided tours, and more.

“We’re ready to start offering more expansive opportunities for people to explore the Museum and connect with one another,” said Everson Director Elizabeth Dunbar. “We hope that by providing more accessible hours, it will allow people to make the Everson a part of their busy lives. We’ve done a lot of listening, and what we are hearing is downtowners want more options for socializing outside of work hours and parents want earlier mornings for visits with kids, and we’re here for all of it!”

About the Everson Museum of Art
The Everson is a museum of firsts. It was the first museum to dedicate itself to the collection of American art, to create a permanent collection of ceramics, to collect video art, to create a docent program and to hire the now internationally-known architect I.M. Pei to design its building, a sculptural work of art in its own right. Located in Syracuse, NY, the Everson is home to over 10,000 works of art: American paintings, sculpture, drawings, video, graphics and one of the largest holdings of international ceramics in the nation.
