Join us for campus-wide tours of the art galleries at Stony Brook University. This free series of events is open to the public and takes place twice per semester. To find out more, visit the Stony Brook University Art Crawl page.
Stony Brook University is host to a variety of renowned art galleries that provide
unique environments for diverse cultural and artistic exchanges.
Art Crawls unite our university galleries through a series of free, guided tours led by curators. This initiative directly supports the university’s commitment to celebrating diversity and positioning the university in the global community .
The Office of Creative Arts, of Student Activities and Engagement, in collaboration with the Charles B. Wang Center, Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery, Simons Center Gallery, Special Collections and University Archives of the University Libraries, and the Lawrence Alloway Gallery founded the Stony Brook University "Art Crawl" in 2015.
Curators and artists are present at each venue to introduce the exhibit and to facilitate discussion on artists and themes from diverse ethnic, cultural, religious, political, scientific and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students, the wider university community, and visitors can experience art on campus by viewing one-of-kind creative works and participating in lively discussions. Events have featured works by professional artists, art produced by undergraduate and graduate students, and selections from the university’s own historical collections.
The schedule and locations of the Art Crawls vary each semester. All are welcome to attend. RSVPs are not necessary. The events are free and can be joined at any of the stops along the crawl.
