About Squeaky Wheel

Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center has a mission to continue a legacy of innovation in media arts through access, education, and exhibition. We envision a community that uses electronic media and film to celebrate freedom of expression and diversity of voice. Founded in 1985 by a cadre of artists including Tony Conrad, Chris Hill, and Julie Zando, Squeaky Wheel serves the Western New York community with classes and workshops for both adults and youth, a continuing series of screenings and gallery exhibitions, and low-cost access to equipment. Our focus covers the entire spectrum of media arts, from traditional celluloid practices to newer technologies such as virtual reality and 3D mapping.


On the first Friday of every month—from 10 am to 10 pm—admission to part of the museum and select events are free for everyone. Certain events and special exhibitions are available for a fee. Learn More

Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center's events are made possible with generous support by the Arts Council of the Southern Finger Lakes, Erie County Arts & Cultural Funding, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, individual members, businesses, and supporters.

Villa Maria College’s Animation Program teaches the fundamentals of animation and fine art, and builds from there. The small classes are instructed by our renowned faculty, and allow students to get a personalized, hands-on education.
