Mission Statement

About the University Art Galleries/George Segal Gallery


The mission of the University Art Galleries (including its flagship George Segal Gallery) is to propagate culture and art through interpretive contemporary exhibitions and related events focused on its collection and local, statewide and international inspirational sources.

The Galleries' vision is to become a premiere destination for modern and contemporary art.

The George Segal Gallery in and of itself serves as a testament to Montclair State University’s commitment to be a major center for the visual arts and share its rich array of intellectual and cultural resources with the people of New Jersey. The Gallery endeavors to foster art education and exposure to important works of art
to area students as well as a wide audience of all ages from surrounding communities.
