Everson Museum of Art and
Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute
Syracuse and Utica, New York
Join The Hyde Collection’s Curator of Education June Leary for visits to two extraordinary museums in Central New York. Our first stop will be the Everson Museum of Art for a docent-led tour of American paintings in the Museum’s permanent collection. Among the 19th century artists represented are Albert Bierstadt, Edward Hicks, and Sanford Gifford. Modern American painters in the collection include Helen Frankenthaler, Al Held, Robert Motherwell, and Jackson Pollock. A particular concentration at the Everson includes landscapes of New York State by New York State artists, best represented by second-generation Hudson River School, tonalist, and impressionist painters, but also regionalist and early modernists.
On our way to Utica we will stop in Fayetteville for a buffet lunch at the Craftsman Inn, known for its graciousness and its Craftsman inspired Stickley furniture and decor. Our next stop, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, which features a renowned permanent collection housed in an international-style gallery building designed by the world-famous architect, Philip Johnson. The visit here includes a tour of the exhibition The Golden Age of European Painting, which illustrates the artistic achievement that made the two centuries from 1600 to 1800 so remarkable. Before our return, coffee, tea, and cookies will be served at the Terrace Cafe in Fountain Elms, a beautiful historic home attached to the Arts Institute.
