Located near the library and university center, the Central Michigan University Art Gallery's mission is to provide you and other mid-Michigan community members the opportunity to see contemporary art by emerging and established regional, national and international artists.

The gallery also serves as a laboratory and classroom for you to learn the process and concepts of exhibiting your creative work through juried student shows and senior BFA and BAA exhibitions.
