Gallery Exhibiting Policy

The Center at Eagle Hill has 13 non-secure, open alcove zones and 1 glassed in, locking space: Alsop Gallery. All spaces are designed to complement the presented artwork with neutral colored walls, museum quality lighting, and hanging systems.  Spaces Gallery is open to the campus community and public daily. Exhibits include works of art in various media created by students, faculty, alumni, and regional artists, as well as national and international artists.

The gallery team (director, student interns) curates a variety of exhibits annually. Because we are committed to serving our student population by fulfilling our mission, themes and schedules for Spaces Gallery are geared toward supporting and enhancing the learning goals of both the academic and residential programs. Spaces Gallery hosts 2 invitational exhibits, in addition to an annual student/ faculty/alumni exhibit in conjunction with the Arts on the Hill family weekend in May. This exhibit continues throughout the summer.
