Everson @ SYR
Syracuse Hancock International Airport has a new exhibit showcasing artwork from the Everson Museum of Art. This inaugural installation is the first phase of an art program that will ultimately include a gallery, where the public can view and purchase art, as well as some permanent pieces that will be created specifically for the airport. The airport is working with the Syracuse Public Arts Commission, along with local museums and artists to bring the beauty of art inside the airport for the public to enjoy.
“As much as the airport is the center of transportation for the region, it is also a part of a community that is abundant with talent and a rich history of artists,” said Christina R. Callahan, Executive Director of Aviation. “We hope travelers and visitors alike will take a moment to experience Everson @ SYR and the many wonderful pieces on display.”
“This unique opportunity aligns perfectly with the Everson’s mission of providing direct encounters with art, and we are pleased to partner with the Airport and City of Syracuse in this endeavor.” said Steven Kern, Everson Museum of Art Executive Director.
The new exhibit show features several ceramic pieces from the Ceramic Nationals collection at the Everson Museum. Hundreds of works on clay are always on view in the Everson’s Ceramic Study Center and special exhibitions frequently highlight ceramic artists in the upstate New York region. For a limited time you can now get a taste for the collection during your next visit to the airport.
