The Gallery at the Visual & Performing Arts Center

The Gallery at the Visual & Performing Arts Center is dedicated to presenting professional, contemporary art exhibitions and cultural programming with accomplished artists who serve as an educational resource for students and the community. The Exhibition Program mounts several curated exhibitions per year and several student exhibitions including, the MFA Thesis Exhibit, the Senior Portfolio Exhibit and a second MFA Thesis Exhibit in New York City. Through gallery tours, artist talks and workshops, exhibition catalogs and publications we invite our audience to embrace new ideas and perspectives and seek to inspire an appreciation of art in all its forms.
