Thank you for supporting the Montclair State University Galleries!
The Montclair State University Galleries brings together ideas, perspectives, and dialogues to foster curiosity and shared understandings through art. The University Galleries presents diverse and inclusive exhibitions and programs creating connections that unite the campus experience with the local and global community.
- Build a strong reputation in academia and the art world – facilitating interactions between artists, scholars, curators, and the community, introducing artists from around the world to new audiences, and generating original work and scholarship in the field.
- Enhance interdisciplinary teaching through art: Grow object-based and experiential learning programs. Through collaboration with academic departments, centers, and programs we can use the presentation of art as a jumping-off place for discourse and dialogue across a range of disciplines.
- Cultivate Student Engagement: Students are the heart of the university and they should be integrated into all gallery operations including exhibition development, design, collections work, programs, events, and educational outreach.
- Art accessibility for the community: The University Galleries is an extension of visual arts teaching and learning across campus and beyond the walls of the Segal Gallery, its primary exhibition space. Enhancing a digital presence through virtual tours, video and audio content, collection digitization, upgraded facilities, and accessible space for permanent collections.
The Montclair State University Galleries home is in the George Segal Gallery, on the 4th floor of the Red Hawk Parking Deck. Our programming extends beyond the walls of our flagship gallery to display cases in the Kasser Theater lobby, in academic buildings across campus, and outdoor sculpture.
Though Montclair State University serves more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the University Galleries partners with academic programs, campus centers, clubs, and departments, as well as a number of community organizations. Our inclusive programming brings the visual arts to all members of the community together.
