Today is Giving Day!

Canisius College’s Giving Day – our 24-hour online fundraising campaign – is here! Please considering supporting this important day and everything that makes Canisius College so special.

And if you hadn’t heard yet, the Canisius Leadership Council (CLC) is challenging all faculty and staff to make a gift.  If 75 current faculty or staff make a Giving Day gift, then a $10,000 gift, courtesy of the CLC, will unlock!  Let’s get to that 75 today!

You’ll be supporting students just like Hannah Iqbal – Class of 2023 – a biology and pre-med major (featured in the video below).


Help us to make this the best Giving Day yet!  Make your gift now:

Thank you,
Erin, Jessica and Shannon (the Annual Giving & Stewardship Team)

Curator Talk and Art Reception

ArtsCanisius and the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library invite you to an art reception on Friday, April 21, 2023, from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Library outside the Peter A. and Mary Lou Vogt Gallery. The gallery will display works by LeRoi Johnson from the Canisius College Art Collection, which were previously installed at the Burchfield-Penney Art Center for the exhibit “LeRoi: Living in Color.” That exhibit ran from November 11, 2022 to March 26, 2023.

During the reception, Tiffany D. Gaines, the Curatorial and Digital Content Associate at Burchfield Penny Art Center, will discuss LeRoi’s achievements and artistic practice.

Tiffany D. Gaines is a curator, writer, photographer, and multimedia creator. She is interested in highlighting the diverse arts and artists of her community, particularly the stories often excluded from the mainstream canon, through her curatorial work, content creation, and writing. She holds a BA in Journalism from SUNY Buffalo State and is currently pursuing her MA in Visual Studies from the University at Buffalo. As an artist and creative, her photography practice explores themes of healing, rebirth, narrative, history, and legacy. Stemming from her experiences as a Black woman in America, her multidisciplinary practice focuses on the most fundamental elements of the human experience to engage new, diverse perspectives and activate the past in ways that can lead to a more understanding and empathetic future.

There will be light refreshments provided courtesy of the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library.
