The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University’s newly published collection catalogue: “The Armand and Eleanor Castellani Collection: Art for the Public Eye” is now available for online purchase.
The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University (CAM) released the first publication about our permanent collection in fall 2015. The catalogue includes an essay by former director, Dr. Sandra Olsen, which gives a history of the collection and how it was assembled. An essay by Marian Granfield, Director of Niagara University’s Art History with Museum Studies Program, provides an overview of the educational programming offered by the CAM with special emphasis on how the visual arts can be used to teach across disciplines.
The book also includes 52 stunning color plates and a checklist of selected gifts from the Armand and Eleanor Castellani family.
