exhibitions which are topically stimulating and relevant to the
greater community as well as pertinent to the art department program.
Art Gallery serves as a visual arts laboratory for the art department
and is an integral component of the Art Appreciation
and Art History programs. Numerous students, faculty
and community members attend the lectures by visiting artists scheduled
in the gallery in conjunction with each show. Classes from diverse
departments such as English, History and Speech as well as the Art
Department, come to the gallery frequently, using the exhibitions
as a springboard for discussion.

within a gallery context. Taught by a member of the gallery staff,
students enrolled in Art 34 discuss issues relating to contemporary
art and work closely with artists exhibiting in the gallery. Consequently,
these students receive first-hand experience with exhibition design,
lighting design, art administration, and artist's career issues.
