Student Galleries

The Department of Art and Art History presents a weekly rotation of exhibitions in our six student art galleries and ten display cabinets located in the Art Building and Industrial Studies Building. BA, BFA, and MFA students are required to exhibit their work in partial fulfillment of their degree requirements, resulting in 150+ student exhibitions annually.

Artist receptions are hosted on Tuesday evenings, 6 – 8 PM, and are open to the public free of charge. This unique and extremely popular program of weekly exhibitions and opening receptions is an essential component of the students’ academic experience.
