University Exhibitions and Art Collection
The Adelphi University Exhibitions Program is committed to presenting thought-provoking, inspiring and educational exhibitions in Adelphi’s three gallery spaces. Exhibitions include the work of students, faculty, guest artists and work drawn from the University Art Collection.
Through the acquisition, exhibition, care, and preservation of original works of art, the Adelphi University Exhibitions program and University Art Collection encourages greater awareness, appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. Works are exhibited in university galleries and other public areas, educating and inspiring our community, contributing to the aesthetics of the campus, and reinforcing Adelphi University’s standing as a center of artistic education and expression.
