University Art Gallery

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.

We feature up to 12 exhibitions a year, as well as related lectures and films. Our schedule includes original curated exhibitions and national traveling exhibitions. You will be able to exhibit your work in an impressive 1890 square feet of display space and 290 running feet of walls in two galleries, equipped with LED track lighting, computer monitors, wifi, and a high-definition digital projector with a sound system.
