Learn Outside the Classroom
Studio art students enjoy three on-campus galleries dedicated to student, alumni and local professional artists that display work to view and critique. Outside the studio, students can participate in the Fine Arts Promotion Club, a service and social group which helps at ArtsCanisius functions.
Off-campus, students have the opportunity to visit numerous art venues in the city of Buffalo and surrounding area. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is a must see, as are the Burchfield-Penny Art Center, Art Dialogue Gallery, Hallwalls, Center for the Arts, CEPA, Big Orbit, Impact Gallery and Griffis Sculpture Park. According to a recent Arts Destination Readers' Poll, Buffalo is among the top four art cities in the nation after New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
ArtsCanisius fills the calendar with concerts, exhibits and other arts events for the college community and the public. Students and faculty members are featured in our galleries and performance venues, along with artists from across the region.
