About TRAVEX

The SUArt Galleries Traveling Exhibition Program has provided affordable exhibitions to small and medium museums and university art galleries for nearly three decades. The SUArt Galleries staff generates exhibitions from Syracuse University’s permanent art collection. The focus of the collection is works of art on paper, demonstrating exceptional strength in pieces from the 20th century. Print shows have examined the work of James McNeill Whistler, Georges Rouault, and the German Expressionist movement. Other exhibitions have studied artist portraits and self-portraits, early 20th century images of New York City subways and skyscrapers and 19th century hand-colored Japanese photographs.

Syracuse University Art Galleries

SUArt Galleries is the largest exhibition venue at Syracuse University for the visual arts. Located in the Shaffer Art Building, the Galleries was established in 2007. The renovated facility hosts a variety of temporary and permanent exhibitions throughout the year in its nearly 10,000 square feet of exhibition space. The department’s mission is to enhance the cultural environment of the University and the Syracuse area through meaningful educational experiences and encounters with the University’s permanent collection and temporary exhibitions.
