Everson Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings
I've been visiting Syracuse this week, and was finally able to get out to visit this Art museum today. Honestly, I can't recommend it enough! The displays are really nicely put together, with a good variety of art mediums (Ceramics, video, photographs, paintings, etc.). It's also a really nice size - not too small, but also not so big that you feel overwhelmed by the amount of art. And at $6-8 a person, the price was absolutely worth it. I also feel like mention needs to be made of the staff. They were probably the most friendly people I've ever met in any gallery/museum I've ever been to! I had some really nice conversations with two of the men working in the gallery (I think one said his name was Walter). Usually the security people at galleries are taciturn, uninterested, and imposing, but that was not the case here. Likewise, the women at the front desk were very helpful in answering any questions I had, and the one security man on the main floor whose name I didn't get was very kind in helping me figure out how to get back to my hotel when arranging taxis proved more hassle than it was worth. Thanks so much for a lovely afternoon - if any of you see this, it was a pleasure meeting all of you :)
If you're in Syracuse, broke, and/or into ceramics, do NOT miss this pay-as-you-wish museum. On the lowest floor are some of the most astonishing and varied clay masterpieces by artists all over the world. Yes, there is beautiful pottery. But there are sculptures made to resemble cardboard, leather, wood, styrofoam, and all manner of other media. On upper levels are rotating exhibits, some ancient art, modern paintings like what one would see in NYC's Whitney, and a gallery full of Tiffany glass. There is also an interactive and educational section for kids (and kids at heart).
A smaller museum but the Yoko Ono exhibition is a must see. I was prepared not to like her art but I am a convert, it shows imagination and flair
The building itself is a work of art... the art contained within the walls was interesting and historic. Also a great place to go on a hot, muggy summer day.
I loved the Yoko Ono exhibit! So interactive and interesting.
