Eastern's Department of Art houses a unique central gallery space. The Department offers an excellent exhibition program geared towards giving students first-hand knowledge of the work, ideas and methods of successful visual artists working today.
Exhibitions occur quarterly, with end-of-the-year Symposium and BFA exhibitions of student work. Exhibitions are often coupled with artist talks and/or critique sessions with students.
Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm
Closed weekends and holidays

Receptions are held on opening days of exhibitions (Wednesdays at noon) unless otherwise noted. All events are free to the public.
