The UB Art Galleries exhibitions and collections provide stimulating environments from which to learn and study. Experimental and conceptual learning activities include tours, special projects, professional development seminars, art activity workshops, accessibility to exhibiting artists, educational materials, individual consultation, and scheduled classroom visits arranged by the curator of education. These opportunities are for teachers who are interested in enhancing curriculum by integrating exhibition content, concepts, and themes into planned lessons.
Arts and cultural organizations
We are proud to serve as a cultural community resource by offering organizations partnership opportunities at UB Anderson Gallery, allowing for greater accessibility to the permanent collections and exhibitions. This accessibility provides a means to enrich curriculum or to augment a thematically focused program.
Past on-site gallery programming collaborations include afterschool and summer camp Art Day sessions with Parkside Community Association, school day exhibition tours, artwork inspired creative writing exercises led by poets and writers from Just Buffalo Literary Center, and the development and implementation of a credit-bearing summer school arts and health focused pilot course for selected Health Sciences Charter School high school students.
Health services agencies, centers, and associations
Past collaborations include on-site art activity programs for artists participating in the iXpress expressive arts program and the Supported Volunteering Lifestyle Enrichment (SVLE) services, with both programs facilitated by the health services agency Aspire of WNY, Inc.
Community program partnerships include gallery-based art activity sessions for students enrolled in the Young Adults Life Transitions (YALT), a program offered by the human services agency People Inc. located on UB’s south campus, and for children enrolled in Gloria J. Parks Community Center’s summer camp and programs designed for senior citizens.
