Castellani Art Museum

The Castellani Art Museum is one of this region’s major art museums, with seven galleries, and a rotating schedule of exhibitions and events. The CAM collection includes 5,900 artworks in all media — painting, drawings, photography and sculpture — by some of the world’s most distinguished artists. The CAM is your museum to explore and enjoy.

University faculty teach in the museum’s classroom and galleries, using the CAM collection as a teaching tool to make art come alive. Art History with Museum Studies is a new academic program that provides students with a scholarly study of art, culture and museums while focusing on the area of professional museum work. Fine arts courses offer hands-on instruction in drawing, painting, watercolor and hand papermaking.

Work Study

The museum employs work-study students each semester. If you are interested in working in the creative environment of a university art museum, please contact the Office of Student Records and Financial Services at 716.286.8686.

Internships and Community Service

The CAM offers a limited number of non-paid internships and community service (volunteer) opportunities to Niagara University students. Internships should be arranged through your professor, who will contact the museum. Student volunteers have assisted with photography at special events, office work and digital archiving. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Susan Clements at 716.286.8201 or drop by the museum.
