Castellani Art Museum
Constructed in 1990, the Castellani Art Museum is located on the campus of Niagara University and houses more than 5,600 works of mostly modern and contemporary art. It is named after its founder Armand J. Castellani, who contributed funds for its construction and also donated most of his art collection. The building was designed by architect Thomas Moscati. The art collection consists of prints, paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures that date primarily from the mid-19th century to today. Artists of note represented here include Picasso, Bierstadt, Dali, and Motherwell. Another part of the collection is a large collection of historical prints depicting Niagara Falls since the 17th century. In addition to the art, the museum offers group tours and a variety of educational programs for children.
