SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Everson Museum of Art announced that Craig M. Boise, dean of the Syracuse University College of Law, has taken over as the new chair of the museum’s board of trustees, effective Jan. 1.

Boise has served on the Everson board since 2017 and has been dean of the Syracuse law school since 2016. Before that, he led the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University.

“The Everson is a cornerstone of the Syracuse arts and culture community, and I’m pleased to continue my engagement with Board of Trustees as chair,” Boise said in an Everson news release issued on Jan. 11. “I look forward to building on our growing reputation — locally and nationally, leveraging art to celebrate human diversity, and building community in Syracuse and across the region.”

The previous chair of the Everson board of trustees was Jessica Arb Danial, who completed her term at the end of 2021. She was the first female board chair to serve since the early 1970s, according to the Everson. Danial was also the youngest in the role. She has been a trustee since 2016 and helped lead the Everson through many challenges and successes during her tenure, the museum said.
