Art Events

Art Events include Shows, Opening Receptions and Lectures given by faculty members and guests. Three on-campus galleries are used for ongoing art shows and student artwork: Peter A. and Mary Lou Vogt Galleries in the Bouwhuis Library and on the fourth fl oor of Lyons Hall, and Alumni Gallery between Old Main and Tim Horton’s Cafe.

History Lectures

Every semester, the art program brings in distinguished scholars to present his or her own work to our community. We are also fortunate to be able to draw upon the expertise of our own faculty members as part of the Fine Arts Meet-the-Faculty program.
