The Richard F. Brush Art Gallery aims to strengthen community by creating a sense of belonging for all who visit, teach, and learn in its spaces, both physically and virtually. In accordance with St. Lawrence University’s acknowledgement of "the need to challenge previous habits and assumptions understanding the structures of power and injustice in which they exist," we enact our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusivity, and accessibility by prioritizing tangible, ongoing steps to diversify exhibitions and the permanent collection, to encourage participation and feedback from diverse communities, and to create an accessible environment. We work to elevate and amplify the voices and creative artistic expressions of those who have been historically marginalized, either explicitly or implicitly, and Gallery resources at all levels – staffing, funding, exhibition and program opportunities, and acquisitions – will be invested in these activities.
