Local Curator to Speak on Campus

The campus community is invited to a lecture entitled “Curating from the Other Side” by Holly E. Hughes on Wednesday, April 19 at noon in Regis Room South. Hughes is a curator at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. She will present and share her most memorable experiences as a curator at the gallery.


Hughes recently organized the stunning collection-based exhibitions “Picasso: The Artist and His Models,” “Monet and the Impressionist Revolution, 1860–1910” and “Arp, Miró, Calder.” The current exhibit, “Menagerie: Animals on View,” is Hughes’ engaging presentation of much-loved and some rarely seen works from the gallery’s permanent collection. “Menagerie” offers visitors a captivating view of the innumerable ways in which artists depict animals in their works.

Be the Light Institute Returns This Summer

For the second year, Canisius will host the Be the Light Youth Theology Institute from July 10 – 15. The institute features service / immersion experiences, academic instruction and faith-sharing / reflection. Plus plenty of food!

Recent growth in Buffalo has caused this “City of Light” to start shining brighter and brighter.  But where in our city does this light need to shine even more?  Where are the dark corners of injustice in our city that call out for our response?  How do the Catholic faith and Jesuit spirituality inform approaches to understanding and rectifying such injustices? Participants will be exploring these questions and more with Canisius faculty, staff, alumni and undergraduate leaders.

If you know any current high school sophomores and juniors who are interested, please invite them to apply to be a part of this exciting opportunity to live and learn on our campus!  Applications are being accepted now through May 5 on our website:

We are pleased to offer a $100 discount this year for children of Canisius faculty and staff! Further scholarships and travel assistance are also available.
