About the Galleries and College The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in William A. Brodie Hall and the Lockhart Gallery on Main Street present both contemporary and historic rotating exhibitions, including works by local, regional and national artists, and by faculty. The Bridge Gallery, a unique space bridging two wings of Brodie Hall, exhibits student work.

The Integrated Gallery Program is an initiative of the Office of the Provost and the Geneseo Galleries administration that will support interdisciplinary exhibits with programming developed across academic departments and programs and presented in multiple campus buildings. This effort seeks to further engage students, staff and community members in a reinvigorated art and academic collaboration.

Geneseo's tradition of interweaving liberal and professional education began in 1867, when the state legislature passed an act authorizing the location of a "normal" (or teacher training) school in the community. In 1871, Geneseo welcomed its first students to the Wadsworth Normal and Training School, offering instruction to would-be teachers. Geneseo became an official campus of the State University of New York in 1948. Geneseo now enrolls more than 5,000 students in 54 undergraduate and three graduate programs. The college is located in Geneseo, N.Y., about 30 minutes south of Rochester, N.Y., 90 minutes west of Syracuse and 60 minutes east of Buffalo.
