About the Lederer, Lockhart and Bridge Galleries and The State University of New York at Geneseo
The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in William A. Brodie Hall and the Lockhart Gallery on Main Street present both contemporary and historic rotating exhibitions, including works by local, regional and national artists, and by faculty and student artists. The Bridge Gallery, a unique space bridging two wings of Brodie Hall, exhibits student work.
Geneseo's tradition of interweaving liberal and professional education began in 1867, when the state legislature passed an act authorizing the location of a "normal" (or teacher training) school in the community. In 1871, Geneseo welcomed its first students to the Wadsworth Normal and Training School, offering instruction to would-be teachers. Geneseo became an official campus of the State University of New York in 1948. Geneseo now enrolls more than 5,000 students in 54 undergraduate and three graduate programs. The college is located in Geneseo, N.Y., about 30 minutes south of Rochester, N.Y., 90 minutes west of Syracuse and 60 minutes east of Buffalo.
