The Art Gallery, University of Maryland
College Park, Maryland 20742
It is the mission of The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland to be a national leader in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists, a supporter of new and innovative scholarship, and a vital part of the local and University cultural landscape. Arts program goals include: to educate the university community as well as the general public from the greater Maryland and Washington, DC region on new and innovative scholarship on all art forms from diverse cultures; to play a primary role in the region’s artistic landscape as a venue promoting contemporary art and visual culture; to further distinguish the reputation of the University of Maryland by featuring our permanent art collection for study, research, and exhibition, and offering programming that complements academic objectives; and to provide arts programming and administration training to students through guided experiences in exhibition development and collection management.
The Gallery is closed during the summer, in the fall on Saturdays when Maryland Football is at home, and between exhibitions.
