Art on Campus and Community

In the Student Union Building, our curatorial team serves the university campus at large–students, faculty, staff, community members; we believe that providing access to visual art is central to that service. We work to model a culture foundationed on the philosophy that visual art should be accessible to everyone, as both audience members and artists. We encourage our diverse campus communities to think of themselves as worthy of being makers with creativity. As future engineers, historians, social workers, writers, and entrepreneurs alike search for how to be themselves and live in the confidence of their points of view, we want to encourage them to seek out art as part of the process. Our curatorial team is here to help.

Finding Art on Campus

You may be surprised at how many places on campus you can find art outside of a traditional gallery, like the Student Union Fine Art Gallery– public art, academic departments, the library, and even the parking garages. Below you will find the many opportunities campus provides to make art available to you.
