The Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery presents dynamic professional and student exhibitions in a 5,000 square foot space in the Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University.
Exhibitions bring works by celebrated artists to the campus, including Yoko Ono, Larry Rivers, Elizabeth Murray, Philip Pearlstein, Kate Gilmore and the Guerrilla Girls. In addition, each year the gallery presents exhibitions featuring the work of Stony Brook University undergraduate and graduate students as well as triennial exhibitions featuring the distinguished faculty of the Art Department.
The gallery was established in 1975 as the Stony Brook University Art Gallery. The Staller Center dedicated its art gallery space with the new name of Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery on April 4, 2013 in appreciation of the generosity of Alice Zuccaire and the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation. The mission of the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation is to perpetuate the memory and the spirit of Paul W. Zuccaire by the encouragement, promotion and support of the arts, education, health, humanitarian and other related activities through grants to not-for-profit institutions and organizations. The Foundation was established in 1999 by Estelle Zuccaire in loving memory of her husband.
Under the directorship of Karen Levitov, the Zuccaire Gallery engages the campus and regional communities through lively programming and museum-quality exhibitions of contemporary art. All exhibitions, programs and events are free and open to the public.
