For a decade and a half, the Mason Gross Galleries at Civic Square have provided a spacious venue in the heart of New Brunswick’s arts district for the exhibition of works in a variety of media. The gallery has featured sculpture, photography, painting, works on paper, video, and various installations.
The gallery is host to the annual winter exhibition by the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions. Each semester, the school mounts shows by students, faculty, and distinguished outside artists. Past exhibitions have featured works by alums William Pope.L and Lucas Samaras, as well as work by prominent former faculty members George Segal, Mimi Smith, and Roy Lichtenstein.
Ideally, the galleries stimulate critical thinking about contemporary art, act as a laboratory for the creation of new work, and provide a platform for art presentation and interpretation. These goals are accomplished through a wide range of programs, lectures, and curated professional shows that engage the faculty and students as well as the general public.
