Centers, Institutes, and Resources
The Samek Art Museum and Galleries are a program of Bucknell University that creates meaningful encounters between artists, students, scholars, the public and works of art. These encounters occur in the Samek Art Gallery, the Downtown Art Gallery, the Museum Collection Study Room, Connections Gallery, and the Project Room. These spaces activate the intellectual life of campus arts and challenge students and extend their creativity. The Galleries are academic art labs where experimental art, innovative curatorial practices, and co-curricular programming generate new ways to engage and inspire audiences.
