Art & Design Gallery

Located on the third floor of the Art & Design Building, the Art & Design Gallery serves as a teaching space. Students from the department, as well as from the university at large, are exposed to art by their peers, visiting and regional artists, and faculty members. Many Visual Art students experience installing and exhibiting their work in a gallery setting for the first time in this space. The 2,100 square foot gallery has been recently renovated. The gallery is free and open to the public.
