Binghamton University Art Museum

Located at the center of campus, the Binghamton University Art Museum is a dynamic public space where staff and faculty engage students and the wider public through frequent original exhibitions and programming. The Binghamton University Art Museum has a permanent collection of over 4,000 objects selectively acquired over 50 years. These include works on paper, paintings, sculpture and decorative arts from around the world and spanning 5,000 years. These activities and objects are vital to Binghamton University, one of four research universities as well as the most selective undergraduate campus in the State University of New York.

Exhibitions are installed in the Main Gallery, the Susan M. Reifer ’65 and Stanley J. Reifer ’64 Mezzanine Gallery and the Nancy J. Powell Gallery, which itself consists of several small galleries. Exhibitions rotate regularly and are curated by museum staff, faculty members, and students.

In addition to exhibitions, the museum offers other opportunities for visitors to engage with art. The Kenneth C. Lindsay Study Room provides students, faculty members and the general public a space in which they may view any work in the permanent collection. This room is also used for university classes and the short-term display of selected objects for educational purposes. An area leading into the Lindsay Study Room has recently been transformed into visible storage. Here, visitors may view objects that would otherwise be in vault storage, but are instead densely installed in glass cabinets. A specially designed tablet tour allows individuals to read short labels written by students from different disciplinary perspectives.
