People mingle at a show in Hiestand Galleries

Hiestand Galleries

Considered visual laboratories, the programs of Hiestand Galleries exhibit artworks that highlight timely, enlightening, and challenging exhibitions that consider the ever-changing world of contemporary visual expression. With over twenty exhibitions per year, the galleries feature artworks by national and international artists and designers, as well as work by undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Art. Two national competitions in painting and sculpture bring the latest trends in the 21st century to the forefront. A vital Visiting Artist and Scholars program aligns with the exhibition programs, and connects students to the professional artist and critics in this capacities, including studio visits, lectures, and off-campus events. Exhibition opportunities are available in three galleries in Hiestand Hall and in the Art Building Lobby.

Location: Hiestand Hall, off main lobby.
