Visitors from all over the world coming to see Niagara Falls will soon be able to experience the art inspired by this natural wonder. Niagara University's Castellani Art Museum will open its new exhibition, "Artists View the Falls: 300 Years of Niagara Falls Imagery," at the museum's satellite gallery in the Niagara Falls Conference Center, 101 Old Falls St., in downtown Niagara Falls.

An opening reception and ribbon cutting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 1, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Niagara University president, the Rev. Joseph Levesque, C. M., will officially cut the ribbon to open the exhibition.

The exhibition presents visions of Niagara Falls as interpreted by artists throughout the past 300 years. The images were chosen from hundreds of artworks depicting the falls in the Castellani Art Museum's permanent collection. The semi-permanent exhibition is scheduled to be on view at the Conference Center for the next five years.

Admission is free. For more information, call 286-8200.
