Welcome to the Samek Art Museum

The Museum is a program of Bucknell University that creates meaningful encounters between artists, students, scholars, the public, and works of art. These encounters occur in the Samek Gallery, the Downtown Gallery, the Collection Study Room, and across campus in pop-up exhibitions and permanent art installations. Presenting visual fine art in critical contexts consistent with Bucknell's high academic standards, the Museum challenges students and extends the intellectual life of campus in an informal lifelong learning environment.
