Amassed over many years, this collection showcases RIT talent and reflects the university's visual arts curriculum since 1886. Thousands of works, including hundreds by faculty, students and alumni illustrate the historical range of art programs offered at RIT and testify to the generosity of many individuals who have made donations to RIT. Many of the works, in particular the large scale pieces, have been purchased specifically for display on campus, while a number of smaller pieces hang in offices in various buildings. The entire collection has an important educational component, offering RIT students an opportunity to experience visual art first-hand and see works in their chosen field, providing a historic context for their learning.
Some of our art collections are described and searchable on the Art on Campus website.
