The McIninch Art Gallery presents diverse exhibitions devoted to the art of the region and beyond. It is equipped to museum standards of humidity, temperature and lighting.
Made possible by a generous gift from The McIninch Foundation in April 2001, the Gallery is a sign of the university's growing commitment to the liberal arts and a resource to benefit the entire institution as well as the greater community of which it is a part. Its grand opening exhibition in February 2002 began a cycle of six to seven shows a year in a wide range of genres, styles and media. Shows may coordinate with a variety of demonstration, lecture, concert, classroom and other events.
The Gallery is building a permanent collection of art supporting the university's curricula and providing a source of enjoyment, enlightenment and beauty to all who visit.
