Common Ground

On view November 12—December 31, 2022

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski’s sculpture is a testament to the artist’s ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

Common Ground uses Tetkowski’s World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson’s vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terra-cotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson’s collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse’s focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. Common Ground uses ceramics, one of humankind’s oldest art forms to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation

On view September 3—December 31, 2022

Rebecca Hutchinson’s sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her upcoming exhibition at the Everson Museum of Art is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. Re-Generation highlights Hutchinson’s cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation’s largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, Re-Generation takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance

Everson Museum of Art
 

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance

On view September 10—December 31, 2022

Structure/Dissonance celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l’oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua’s first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, Structure/Dissonance focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua’s intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua’s insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying “borscht belt” bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua’s singular expressive sculptures.

North Pole Pajama Parties

Celebrate the start of the winter season with the MOST – pajamas encouraged! Join us for your classic favorites like the Hot Cocoa Bar, as well as new and exciting activities exploring the North Pole, from arctic animals and geomagnetic poles to snowflakes, ice melt, and more. Then, step inside the new National Grid Exploradome for a specially created planetarium program: “Night in the Arctic” – included with the cost of your ticket!

Dates: November 26, December 3, December 10, & December 17 (Sensory Friendly)

COST: $12 per ticket, $10 for members (includes Museum Admission, Party Activities, and 7:15 Planetarium Show)

Please note that the Polar Express film is no longer available with the digitization of our facility and the opening of the new National Grid Exploradome Theatre and Planetarium. Parties will include hands-on STEM activities and hot cocoa as always, but visitors will end the night exploring the arctic skies in our new planetarium program, “Night in the Arctic,” rather than viewing the classic animated film.

Thank you to film sponsor: Amazon
