Student Art Now Viewable


ArtsCanisius and the Fine Arts Department invite you to enjoy examples of student art in the Alumni Gallery and on the Makerspace Wall in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library.

“Arrivederci a presto!” is a collection of photographs taken over the past few years by students in FAS142 Travel Photography. Led by adjunct professor Tom Wolf, students spend their spring break in Italy putting into practice the skills they have learned in the classroom. These stunning works on are view in the Alumni Gallery as they would be each year during Ignatian Scholarship Day.

The Origami Makerspace Menagerie in the Library is the culmination of three Makerspace events this year. Students, staff and faculty created animals to populate the space. We even received animals from friends of the Canisius College community. Materials are next to the display if you wish to create an animal to add to the collection or take with you.

In addition to the marvelous Makerspace work, passenger pigeons folded by students in FAH272A Animals in Art are also on display. This was a class project coordinated with the viewing of “The Lost Bird Project” and the foldtheflock campaign to raise awareness of the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon, Labrador Duck, Carolina Parakeet, Great Auk and Heath Hen. Sculptor Todd McGrain began this project and continues to add to it. You may learn more about McGrain’s work and the foldtheflock campaign at
