The arts are essential to SUNY Ulster and our community, for whom we are a rich source of programming. Home to the 500-seat Quimby Theater and Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery, our College Lounge, campus grounds and hallways also become showcases for artistic expression, exploration and innovation. Whether it's an outdoor sculpture installation, a concert featuring world-class musicians, or a reading of new work by a world-renowned author, the arts at SUNY Ulster engage our senses, stir our passions and spark our intellect.
The 500 seat John Quimby Theater is the venue for student and professional theatrical productions, concerts, dance presentations, poetry readings, guest lectures and other featured events.
Dedicated in 1969 in memory of John C. Quimby, who was Chairman of the Board of Directors of SUNY Ulster at the time of his death, the theater was renovated in 2006 with new seats, lights, curtains and carpets.

The Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery serves as a center for creative artistic activity at the College and for the outside community. It also functions as an environment for teaching, performing, and exhibiting.
The College's permanent art collection enriches the cultural climate on campus by making additional works of a high level of artistic achievement available to students and the community. In this manner, the collection serves as a permanent visual reference source.
The College believes that the acquisition of art works and the presentation of different art exhibitions assist the College community in setting standards for judgment and perception.
