Learning from other artists and designers serves to inform and inspire our creations.

Every semester our galleries bring visiting artists and designers to further our education. We currently have 5 galleries. The Williams Galleries are found in the Beard Arts Center, where the visiting artists and designers hold their lectures and openings. The 1920 is a student operated space located in the Barnes Student Center, allowing us to gain hands on experience in art curation and managing a gallery. The Curfman Gallery and a student gallery reside in Center Hall, where many smaller student and faculty shows exhibit. In addition to the on-campus events, we also have regular Pop-Up Gallery shows in downtown Marion, thanks to our wonderful friends.  After all, what is art + design without community?
