Impressionism at the Everson Museum
It was a gray day, but we had clear roads, for driving to Syracuse to the Everson Museum of Art. The building is known for its distinctive structural design by the noted architect I. M. Pei.
The special exhibit, "Turner to Cezanne", comprises 53 masterpieces from Renoir, Monet, van Gogh, Turner, Cezanne, Manet, Pissarro, Whistler, Daumier, Corot and more. These pieces are part of the Davies Collection, which is considered one of the National Museum of Wales' most remarkable treasures and one of the great British art collections of the 2oth century.
The exhibit is open until January 3rd. If you'd like more information, see http://www.everson.org/ .
