Since 1976 The Art Gallery at Kingsborough Community College, now the Kingsborough Art Museum, has been dedicated to providing students, faculty and staff at Kingsborough, along with the many communities that make up the borough of Brooklyn, art exhibitions of historical, regional, national or international importance that reflect the values and standards inherent to the Art Department curriculum. To mark its fortieth anniversary (Fall 2016), the gallery changed its name to the Kingsborough Art Museum to reflect its developing role as a cultural space for the Kingsborough community. In accordance with its student-centered mission, the Kingsborough Art Museum plans to play a significant role in the art department's planned Museum Studies concentration by offering a Museum Practicum and other opportunities for students to assist in the planning, curation, and installation of exhibitions.
Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on days when classes are in session.
The Kingsborough Art Museum is closed during the months of February, July and August.
Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
KAM is located on the first floor of the Arts & Sciences Building, and is fully wheelchair accessible.

Dr. Brian Edward Hack received his degrees in Art History from Juniata College (BA, 1994) and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (PhD, 2007). His doctoral thesis, American Acropolis: George Grey Barnard's Monument to Democracy, 1918-1938, explored a previously unexamined project by one of the nation's most noted and notorious sculptors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, George Grey Barnard (1863-1938). A member of the Kingsborough Art Department and assistant in the gallery since 1998, Dr. Hack assumed directorship in 2014. Since that time the college's art space, previously known simply as "The Art Gallery," was rebranded as The Kingborough Art Museum (KAM), with the intention of elevating the space's campus profile while building a teaching collection. When not curating exhibitions at KAM, Dr. Hack pursues an active interest in music and travel. He lives with his delightfully charming wife in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
