Department of Art Galleries

The Department of Art has two very active art galleries dedicated to exhibiting student, local, national and international artists. The galleries are open to the public, offering a look at undergratuate, graduate and contemporary art and practices from around the globe. In addition these galleries host artist talks, lectures and events, providing an expanded art educational resource for our students and the Buffalo community at large.

As our resources grow we look to be providing some live talks and recorded lectures online, along with archives of past exhibitions.
