UB Art Galleries encourages educators of Buffalo’s schools, administrators of cultural organizations, and leaders of community-based agencies to form partnerships with UB Art Galleries professional staff, taking full advantage of the enriching, uniquely designed education programs that showcase and are thematically related to the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. The proximity of UB Anderson Gallery to the University’s South Campus allows for various educational collaborations with UB’s School of Architecture and Planning, School of Public Health and Health Professions, and the School of Medical and Biomedical Sciences
UB Art Galleries Faculty Advisory Committee helps improve accessibility to the collection and archives, and also generates cross-disciplinary exhibition ideas and programming topics related to faculty and student strengths, research interests, campus-wide activities, and factors impacting Western New York. Faculty in UB’s Anthropology Department and the graduate Arts Management Program conduct classes in UB Anderson Gallery’s Seminar Room, providing students access to artworks and the expertise of professional staff. Each spring semester Anthropology students research on objects in the Cravens Collection results in a student organized and interpreted exhibition.
