Book a Tour

UB Art Galleries celebrates the unique ability of art to engage diverse perspectives and interests, from science and technology to the environment, and from gardening to evolving representations of the human figure. Our projects incorporate the realities of being part of a global, interconnected society, while remaining committed to specific issues that impact the Western New York region. Direct access to the arts enhances the learning experience, which is why UB Art Galleries works with faculty to creatively connect exhibitions to their course content, which may be focused on exhibition themes and conceptual premises. We welcome faculty and students from all disciplines to schedule guided tours of exhibitions and Cravens World, conduct research in the Martha Jackson Gallery Archives and the Allan D’Arcangelo Archives, and examine prints from the galleries’ substantial Print Collection.

For a classroom visit or to arrange a visit to the Archives or to view the Print Collection, contact Robert Scalise, Acting Director, UB Art Galleries, at 716-645-0568 or at least two weeks in advance.

Faculty may also schedule class tours that are led by the education curator, the exhibition curator, invited independent curators, faculty, or special guests with a particular expertise related to the exhibition on view. These gallery visits may include follow-up educational activities based on the exhibition’s content and conceptual premise with a focus on a particular area of study or curriculum requirement.
