The Community Exhibitions Program at the Everson Museum of Art provides opportunities for Central New York community organizations to present the work of area artists in the region’s premiere cultural venue.
Exhibitions are selected based on the following criteria:
• Relate to the Everson’s Mission Statement: Through dynamic and meaningful encounters with modern and contemporary American art, the Everson Museum of Art engages diverse communities, inspires curiosity and lifelong learning, and contributes to a more vital and inclusive society.
• Express relevant community or cultural issues and contain a clear theme or rationale.
• Feature new work (created within the last year).
• Demonstrate a relationship to the region.
• Include a minimum of six artists (no solo exhibitions).
• Depending on the scale of the work, approximately 20-30 works can be exhibited.
Exhibitions will not be considered if they contain works that are hazardous, may threaten the safety of public health and well-being, or may damage the property of the Everson.
We are not currently accepting applications. Please check back.
Selected exhibitions will be displayed in January to mid-February, June, or July 2018.

Love, Peace and Soul focuses on the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s, serving as a catalyst for African American artists and musicians to express their voices in the mass media, as well as in their communities. Notable artists of this time include Faith Ringgold, Earnie Barnes, Jeff Donaldson, Emory Douglas, LeRoi Jones and many others. There is a resurgence of the principles this movement embodied, inspiring a new generation of work by emerging Black artists from Syracuse and New York City. The work on view here captures the essence of the time and like their forebears continues exploring the odyssey of the black experience in America.
