One of the jewels of Niagara University, the Castellani Art Museum is dedicated to the enjoyment and educational potential of the visual arts. The museum houses and displays a distinguished collection of contemporary art as part of its mission to remain dedicated to the professional care and preservation of this artwork.
In keeping with the Vincentian tradition, the museum's mission recognizes and serves the diverse racial, ethnic, and religious communities of the Niagara Frontier through the organization and presentation of exhibitions which honor and explore artistic traditions and contemporary output. In addition to presenting diverse artistic expressions, the museum works in partnership to explore and redefine the relationship between the museum and its diverse constituencies.
As a university museum, the Castellani is dedicated to serving the educational needs of the community. This educational purpose looks inward, in terms of optimizing the educational symbiosis between the university community and the museum, as well as outward in providing educational assistance to the region's educational and cultural institutions. The museum provides educators with access to multi-media resources and works with educators to develop new art-related intercultural curricula, thus promoting critical thinking.
The Niagara Power Project is New York’s largest electric generating facility and one of the largest in the United States. Located adjacent to Niagara University's campus and 4 miles downstream from Niagara Falls, the Niagara Power Project transforms the energy of the Niagara River into a plentiful supply of the nation’s cleanest and least expensive electricity.
Built in 1961, the project has two main components: the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant, where most of the electricity is produced, and the Lewiston Pump-Generating Plant, which generates additional power at times of peak consumer demand.
More information on the Niagara Power Project is available at http://www.nypa.gov.
