The Art Museum

The Art Museum at the State University of New York at Potsdam has been known by many for years as the Gibson Gallery because of the generous gifts of important contemporary and modern works of art from the late Dr. Roland Gibson. However, we are much more than a gallery.

Mission Statement

The Art Museum of the State University of New York at Potsdam's mission is to make direct experience of the visual arts accessible to students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the College, as well as to residents of Northern New York.

It serves as the center for visual arts at SUNY Potsdam through the collection, exhibition, and interpretation of quality works of art from the 20th and 21st centuries, and offers a study collection of these and other works that are pre-20th century.

It also provides experiences that supplement and enhance classroom curricula and promotes audience involvement in museum activities through exhibitions, publications, and programming.

"Vigil," an exhibit of artwork by Danielle Johns, a lecturer in the Department of Art, will be on display in the Gibson Art Gallery From Feb. 17 to March 31, 2023. Additional works of art are also on display from the College's permanent collection. Stop by M, T, TH, and F from 1 to 5 p.m., or Wednesday from 1 to 7 p.m.
