Campus Museums & Galleries

Gregory Allicar Museum of Art

With a growing and diverse collection of approximately 3,500 works of art and dynamic programing, the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art is a cornerstone of Colorado State University’s arts initiatives and a link to alumni, Fort Collins, and our region. The museum is dedicated to educational vitality, embracing all audiences, and honoring a diversity of art making across time periods, geographies, and cultures. Members of the department’s faculty work within the collection to curate exhibitions for the museum and students often assist with faculty’s research through their coursework. Graduate students exhibit their thesis work at the museum. BRAINY and Family Day, both annual events, are co-hosted with the museum and our Art Education faculty and students.

Lory Student Center Arts Program

The Lory Student Center Arts Program, a division of Campus Activities, seeks to bring the visual arts to all students at CSU. There are three exhibition spaces in the LSC: the Curfman Gallery, Duhesa Gallery and the Hallery.
