The Galleries at Fordham

The department has two main exhibition spaces centrally located on the Lincoln Center Campus: The Ildiko Butler and The Lipani Gallery .

The Lipani Gallery is located in the Visual Arts Complex. Exhibitions feature student works, student curated exhibitions and selected works by professors from their classes.

The Ildiko Butler Gallery is a more public space located off the main lobby at the Lincoln Center campus, Columbus Avenue entrance. Featured exhibitions include shows curated by faculty and guest curators. These shows examine issues in the visual arts and are of interest to the entire university community. In the spring semester the galleries are reserved for Senior Thesis exhibitions.
