The Picker Art Gallery is Colgate’s on-campus art museum. With a collection of around 11,000 objects, Picker has been a teaching, learning, and research resource for the University and local communities since 1969.
Plan Your Visit
Due to the global COVID-19 situation, the Picker Art Gallery will be open by appointment only.

You can now experience the Picker from home with a new digital resource designed to complement our current exhibition Works in Progress: Original Materials from the Netherlands (January 30–June 28, 2020).
