"Central New York Selects"
2000-06-02 until 2000-09-17
Everson Museum
Syracuse, NY, USA United States of America

Composed entirely of favorite works from the Everson’s permanent collection chosen by Syracuse’s community leaders, Central New York Selects opened to the public on June 3, 2000. Well-known members of the community—artists, writers, politicians, religious leaders, and other friends of the museum—were invited to become guest curators of the exhibition by selecting a favorite artwork and writing a statement explaining the reasons for their choice.

Participants were allowed to choose from all media including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, sculpture, and ceramics, but were limited to works of art that were not currently displayed in the museum galleries. Asking the guest curators to select a favorite work might have been a challenging task for those less familiar with the vast collection of objects in storage. To lend a hand in the decision-making process, the museum designed a website featuring eighty-seven of the most important works in the collection spanning two centuries of American and European art and including the work of Ansel Adams, Eldzier Cortor, Winslow Homer, George Inness, André Kertész, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Andy Warhol. An image of each object was digitally reproduced on the website along with a brief description making it convenient for participants to access the collection online, choose a favorite work, and email their response to the museum. Those who wished to make their selection in person were provided a rare opportunity to examine objects from storage. Central New York Selects provides a fitting occasion for the Everson Museum to exhibit works of art that are not frequently shown while at the same time allowing museum visitors to enjoy works of art that have been chosen by community leaders. The Everson Museum is grateful for the wonderful contributions made by our guest curators resulting in this successful exhibition.
