In concert with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, UMass Amherst's 2021-22 policy requires all faculty, staff, and students to be vaccinated, and until further notice, all patrons and visitors to Fine Arts Center in-person performances, the University Museum of Contemporary Art, Augusta Savage and Hampden galleries must wear a face mask.
Augusta Savage Gallery, located in New Africa House at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, is a multicultural and multiarts facility. Named in honor of renowned sculptor Augusta Savage, the Gallery was founded in 1970 by the Afro-American Studies Department. Its mission is to promote artistic works from a broad spectrum of cultures. Exhibits are selected for their aesthetic integrity and their ability to enlighten the viewer on such issues as race, ethnicity, class, and cultural identity.
All virtual gallery events and exhibitions are free and open to the public!
