The College of Arts and Sciences is a diverse community of exceptional scholars working together toward the common goal of excellence in the pursuit of knowledge, both for its own sake and in service to society.
The College is the University’s largest academic unit and provides the liberal arts foundation for a UAlbany education. In our programs, students explore big ideas and timely, important problems; unleash their creativity and develop their aesthetic sensibility; investigate and analyze the natural world; and develop the flexible intellect required to be engaged local and global citizens.
The Art of Disguise
Photography Professor Phyllis Galembo’s portraits capture the artistry and transformative power of ritual dress in Africa and the Americas. Recently, Galembo received a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts in support of her work, the third of her career. She adds this to her many accomplishments, including a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship, a show at the Venice Biennale international exhibition, and a Senior Fulbright Research Award for Kings, Chiefs and Women of Power: Images from Nigeria.
