The Everson Museum of Art, 401 Harrison St., currently features a painting and photography exhibition called People, Place, and Progress showing actual and artistic scenes from around Onondaga County. The works of art, culled from the Everson’s collection as well as that of the nearby Onondaga Historical Association, were created in the 19th and 20th centuries, so when put together they document the evolution of the area. The early works mostly feature landscapes, but as time passed the compositions began to shift their settings to the city of Syracuse as the city grew in size and population. Assistant Curator Sarah Grzymala plans a gallery talk about the exhibition on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 6 p.m. Call 474–6064 or visit everson.org for more information.
