The Gallery hosts several exhibits a year featuring the extensive permanent collection of Syracuse University, as well as works from alumni and faculty artists, Coalition of Museum and Art Centers partners such as Light Work, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center, and the annual Wynn Newhouse Foundation's awards exhibition for artists who happen to have disabilities. In addition, the Gallery has featured works on loan from collectors or other galleries, and site specific installations by contemporary artists.

Art for Social Change display

Art for Social Change: Mithila Paintings from the Syracuse University Art Museum 

February 5 – June 6, 2024

The exhibition highlights the Museum’s great strengths in Mithila paintings, a collection that is one of the largest held by a university art museum in the United States. Made primarily by indigenous women artists living in the Bihar region of northeastern India, the included paintings trace not only an evolution in style but also shift in social engagement from the 1960s to the present.
