Integrate your class with the CAM

The CAM offers thought-provoking collaborations with the Niagara University Faculty that tie our collection to the themes of your class. We work with NU faculty to integrate art that challenges students’ critical thinking, context, and perspectives with either a tour or a customized class experience.  Inquiries and group tours offered by the CAM must be requested two weeks before your anticipated visit and three weeks if requesting a custom tour. For tour customizations outside the CAM’S regular tours, please make your request known and we will try to accommodate a tour experience for your group. Our full collection is accessible online to customize your class experience.

Faculty Connections 

Dr. Shannon Risk, History
I feel very fortunate to have such a remarkable resource on this campus. The Castellani Art Museum staff work closely with faculty and students to provide intuitive and structured learning in all academic fields. For example, my students in a 1920s U.S. history course learned about post-World War I trauma and emerging trends in psychology by viewing and discussing art pieces by the Surrealists and Dada Group.

Dr. Amelia Gallagher, Religious Studies
In almost every class I teach, the museum plays a role. This museum is at the heart of teaching humanities ... I can't imagine the university without it.

Edward Y.J. Millar, Art History with Museum Studies
As a Curator, teaching in the Art History with Museum Studies program enables my students to learn, hands-on, every little thing that goes into the production of a folk arts exhibit: from conducting field research to developing content and installing the exhibit.
