Making Connections

The Yager Museum of Art & Culture connects Hartwick’s classrooms to the world and the world to the Hartwick and Greater Oneonta community. The Museum’s five galleries feature exhibitions that draw from our collections in the fine arts, Indigenous artifacts of the Upper Susquehanna region, and Southwestern Indigenous pottery, baskets, and rugs, as well as exhibitions that address ongoing and difficult societal concerns such as the COVID-19 pandemic, political power, and Indigenous rights.
