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 are available for a fee. Admission to special exhibitions is Pay What You Wish. Learn More
