Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Series, an ongoing program of the Art Department since 1986, brings recognized artists to the campus for exhibitions in the Fine Arts Gallery (Gallery 450), public lectures, demonstrations and workshops. These visiting artists offer our students and the community insights into new ideas in contemporary art.

Gallery 450 is located in the lobby of the Helen Connor Laird Fine Arts Building.
