The University Art Gallery is considered to be one of the major exhibition spaces of the South Bay area. The gallery supports and enhances the Art Department instructional program while giving students from other disciplines and interested community members a valuable opportunity to explore and experience contemporary and historical works of art. The gallery, with over 2,000 square feet of floor space and 18 foot high ceilings, accommodates large-scale paintings and sculptures by artists of local and national reputation. There are five exhibitions per year with an emphasis on multi-cultural art and artists and an annual art exhibition of work by BA graduates. In conjunction with the exhibitions program, the Art Gallery publishes three exhibition catalogues per year and sponsors a related guest lecture series. The Gallery is also often used as a forum for student art critique classes, discussions with artists, and university and community events, and provides tours to the community and schools. The Gallery does not maintain a permanent collection.
