The Department of Art at the University at Buffalo is dedicated to developing creative and academic skills in studio art, post-studio art, graphic design, aesthetics, critical theory, and art history. Since its founding, our department has been committed to shepherding innovative approaches and new practices. We empower our students to represent their unique visions within a contemporary cultural environment.
The UB student group “Young Americans for Freedom” has invited Michael Knowles to speak on campus. While we support the right to free speech, and the respectful exchange of ideas from diverse perspectives, we are committed to the principles of social justice and ensuring a safe and welcoming community for all.
Discrimination and hate have no place in our society or on our campus.
