Sheppard Contemporary and University Galleries exist to help viewers explore today's world through the intellectual and creative inquiry of art practice.
Dedicated to art encounters informed by interdisciplinary perspectives, University Galleries offer regularly scheduled programming and events co-hosted with other campus departments and local organizations. Exhibitions rotate frequently.
On most Thursday nights, visitors will find an opportunity for a new art encounter in the galleries. Lectures, workshops, demonstrations, screenings, studio visits, receptions and more are all part of University Galleries programming accompanying each exhibition.
The exhibitions and associated programming affirm the goals behind the galleries' mission, which include the enrichment of people's lives, the celebration of human and cultural diversity, and the development of critical thinking and complex aesthetic awareness, that nourish fuller participation in the human community.
University Galleries offer programming and events co-hosted with other campus departments and local organizations.
The University's Permanent Collection represents an impressive, decades-old collecting program that is noteworthy for its early attention to regional painters.
Admission to any University Galleries events is free. Hours of operation vary with location.
