mission 
 

Through its well-trafficked location at the entrance of the Art and Music Library, Frontispace engages the UR community with
thought-provoking exhibitions. The gallery’s year-round schedule and summer residency program stimulate dialogue and connect the university to the broader Western New York artistic landscape, with a focus on local and emerging artists working in a variety of media. The gallery also serves the Art and Art History Department by hosting special exhibitions of work by visiting artists, seniors,
and alumni. 

our name
 

Our gallery takes its inspiration from the frontispiece, traditionally an illustration facing the title page of a book that sets the tone for the contents within. With its rotating exhibitions, Frontispace invites visitors to pause and reflect as they pass through the entryway to the Art and Music library.
