What We're All About
Named in recognition of the generosity of Richard F. Brush '52, the Gallery is an academic resource of St. Lawrence University, an independent liberal arts institution. The mission of the Gallery is to acquire, preserve, interpret, exhibit, and otherwise make accessible works of art, in support of the educational goals of the University and for the benefit of the community at large. Programs and activities are designed to balance a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary objectives, in recognition of diverse functions and meanings of art. As such, the Gallery provides a forum for the creative and critical expression of artists, historians, and curators. The stewardship of the University's permanent collection and a program of temporary exhibitions are the central components of the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery. Related activities such as lectures, panel discussions, residencies, tours, acquisitions, conservation projects, and campus displays provide aesthetic, educational, and cultural opportunities for a variety of audiences.
