Administrative History

Back to Table of Contents

The University Art Museum was officially opened and dedicated on October 5, 1967 as the University Art Gallery.  However, its antecedents have been traced to at least 1929 when the State College News reported that the Art Department was sponsoring an exhibit of the work of Flemish artists.**1  While a formal gallery or exhibit place did not exist, the Art Department frequently sponsored such events, displaying art work in the hallways of the second and third floors of the Draper building as well often mounting exhibits in room 207 of Draper.  In 1957, under the guidance and jurisdiction of Edward Cowley,who joined the art faculty in 1951 and served as head of the Art Department from 1955 to 1975, the Draper Gallery became an official entity.  Existing simply as a room on the third floor of the Draper building in which lights and panels were installed, the Gallery nonetheless had an important function in supporting and enhancing the curriculum of the Art Department.  Such a space not only allowed students to exhibit their own work but also enhanced the opportunity for them, as well as for members of the community, to be exposed to the work of local and regional artists. **2

As a part of the new university campus, space in the Fine Arts Building was designated for an art gallery, which was officially opened in the Fall of 1967.  The University Art Gallery was intended as a forum for contemporary art in the area.  The "the initial exhibitions of the University Art Gallery, notably Nelson Rockefeller's collections and subsequent faculty shows, brought contemporary art of national and international significance to the Albany art public."**3  Furthermore, it has been argued that Rockefeller and the gallery's first director, Donald Mochon "had a vision of a gallery that would become a national show place for contemporary art of a regional, national and international stature."**4

In 1971 the University Art Gallery, in conjunction with the Schenectady Museum and the Albany Institute of History and Art, enhanced its reputation as a forum for regional artists with the creation of the Mohawk-Hudson Regional Exhibit.  Replacing the Artists of the Upper Hudson Exhibit which had been sponsored for over 35 years by the Albany Institute of History and Art, and the Schenectady Regional Exhibit which had been held at the Schenectady Museum for 16 years, the Mohawk-Hudson Regional Exhibit rotated among each sponsoring institution, each setting a different theme for the given exhibit that year.

Following the precedent set in the '20's, the University Art Gallery initially existed as a unit of the Art Department, but from the beginning it enjoyed a considerable amount of administrative and artistic freedom.  Edward Cowley stated that he and Donald Mochan agreed that while the Gallery was a unit of the Art Department, its needs were not necessarily synonymous with those of an academic department.  They decided that for the Gallery to be an efficient and effective body, it needed a degree of autonomy to operate and make its own policy decisions.  Nonetheless, staff members from the Art Gallery played an integral role in the workings of the Art Department, attending faculty meetings and participating in policy decisions.**5

The partial autonomy of the Art Museum from the Art Department was regularized in the mid- 1970's when the Art Gallery began reporting directly to the Dean of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts.  As of 1993, the University Art Museum reports to Dean of the newly created College of Arts and Sciences.  The Gallery and subsequently Museum continue to work closely with the Art Department.  It plays a role in the M.A. and M.F.A. programs by exhibiting student's final exhibitions.  Furthermore, the Art Museum staff often responds to the Art Department's standing invitation for their attendance at Department faculty meetings.  Both the Art Museum and the Art Department use such meetings as an opportunity to share, discuss and coordinate their artistic efforts for the University at Albany, SUNY.**6

In the 1991/92 academic year the Gallery changed its name to the University Art Museum.**7 In doing so, the Museum has been able to better reflect its role as a space not only for the temporary exhibit of work, but also as a repository for a permanent collection.  The educational role of the Art Museum made plain in its mission statement.

"The primary mission of the University Art Museum is public service and education which supports the core curriculum.  The museum is a place for the exhibition of art and artifacts that reflect the diversity of peoples, cultures, and life experiences.  Through its exhibitions, lectures, sponsored symposia, and film and video showings, the museum affords opportunities for interaction and collaboration among faculty, students and members of the larger community. The museum's program of developing the University's collections of contemporary art serves the artistic community by supporting living artists and preserving their work.  It also creates a resource for enriching the campus environment though loans and exhibitions from these collections.  Most essentially, the museum itself is a place for informal self-directed learning.  The experience is voluntary and may provide a moment of reflection or a chance discovery that moves the visitor in a lasting way."**8

Donald Mochan was the director of the Gallery from 1967 until his death in 1976.  Before joining the staff at the State University of New York at Albany, he served as a professor of architecture at RPI.  After his death, Donald Mochan was succeed by Nancy Liddle.  Mrs. Liddle, a graduate of Indiana University and a member of the Art Department, had been involved with the Art Gallery from its inception aiding in planning the first year's exhibits.**9  Mrs. Liddle had served as the full time assistant director of the Gallery from 1966 to 1976, and director from 1976 to her retirement in 1993.  Currently Marijo Dougherty is serving as the interim director of the museum.
