The University at Buffalo Art Galleries (UBAG) support art and ideas that are urgent and relevant to our time and place. UBAG advances art as both inquiry and creative practice available to everyone. Across two locations at the Center for the Arts and UB Anderson Gallery it provides opportunities to experience and research art through its exhibitions program and collection. UBAG is adept at drawing on the many resources and the long history of the university to create exhibitions that are relevant to the local community but that also address critical issues in contemporary culture. From immigration to labor to medicine to the history of the counterculture, the exhibitions program touch on many of the most important concerns of our culture today and present a range of eclectic artists working in different fields.
“Few arts funders have the independence and clarity of purpose to defend the rights of artists and arts organizations to freely express difficult, uncomfortable, even radical ideas as courageously and consistently as the Andy Warhol Foundation.”
