Palitz Gallery

The second floor of Syracuse University’s Lubin House is home to the Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery, Syracuse University Art Museum's visual arts venue in midtown Manhattan. 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.

Reckonings: American Art and the Slow Violence of Climate Change

April 25 – September 9, 2022

Reckonings offers a critical look at how U.S. artists have pictured the relationship between humans and the environment.

Curated by incoming M.A. students in art history in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences, and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott, this timely exhibition reckons with the visual, economic, and political forces that have contributed to slow violence in the United States, which has been driven by capitalism and disproportionately effects the poor and disempowered.
