Make the CAM your museum!

IMG 6772

The Castellani Art Museum serves as a key cultural resource for Niagara University and its surrounding community. It is the only art museum in Niagara County—and has a permanent collection of nearly 6000 artworks.

As the major resource for the visual arts in Niagara County, we strive to present a wide range of exhibitions, exploring everything from regional Folk Arts to cutting edge contemporary art. With up to 10 changing exhibitions each year, there’s always something new to see at the CAM.

We produce outstanding public programming for everyone from kindergarteners to life-long learners and make it easy for people of all ages to enjoy, and engage in, the visual arts. Please take the time to get to know us, and the wonderful services we provide for our community, by becoming a member today.
