Campus Involvement

Pierpont Commons Gallery Wall

The Center for Campus Involvement offers exhibit space to student and non-student artists, student organizations, departments and staff in each of the three unions.

Exhibits are coordinated by the Center for Campus Involvement.  Student employees working in exhibit programming gain a variety of valuable experience working to install exhibits, communicate with artists, and run the juried competition.
