Perspective Gallery

The Perspective Gallery is committed to exhibiting the finest quality fine art with a special interest in providing art viewing opportunities which pique student curiosity and creates bridges within the academic and world community. The university campus is a unique environment where students are exposed to new and innovative ideas. The role of Perspective Gallery is to enrich the college experience by thought-provoking art exhibitions, programs, and collaborations.

Even when we’re closed, exhibitions are visually available through our perimeter windows, in front, and down the corridor along the side of the gallery.
