We are delighted and honored that Dirk Staschke‘s work, “Vanitas Vase Number 5” has been taken into the Permanent Collection of the Everson Museum through the Kottler Endowment. Dirk first visited the Everson in the mid-nineties as a graduate student and was in awe of their ceramics collection. He never imagined that one day my work would join it. Thank you to everyone @eversonmuseum !
Originally opening in 1897 as the Syracuse Museum of Fine Art, the Everson is a museum of firsts. It was the first museum to dedicate itself to the collection of American art, to create a permanent collection of ceramics, to collect video art, to create a docent program and to hire the now internationally-known architect I.M. Pei to design its building, a sculptural work of art in its own right. The Everson is home to approximately 11,000 works of art: American paintings, sculpture, drawings, video, graphics and one of the largest holdings of international ceramics in the nation.
