First floor community gallery

Located on the first floor under the stairwell near the library’s main entrance, the gallery is a modern, innovative display space for students and faculty to showcase their work in a variety of ways. Artwork can be installed with magnets on glass boards, displayed on a digital monitor, or framed and hung from the gallery rail system.
