The Laband Art Gallery is dedicated to presenting exhibitions and public programs that illustrate that the visual arts are a critical component of society. As a university art gallery, the Laband features exclusive exhibitions that may not be found in other civic or private museums. In doing so, the gallery showcases art that has relevance across multiple disciplines as well the broader community.

Laband exhibitions and related programs promote inquiry, creativity, and critical reflection that further a growing awareness of ourselves and of the world around us.

Since 1984, the gallery has produced approximately three exhibitions per school year, including Young Contemporaries, the Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition. The gallery also collaborates with many departments on campus to create related public programs that help enrich the experience garnered from each exhibit.

We hope you'll visit us often, and find intriguing exhibitions that will spark dialogue, generate unexpected ideas and inspire your own creativity.
