University Galleries of Illinois State University has developed a multivalent approach to exhibitions and support for artists. Our exhibitions feature both emerging and established artists, often those whose work has not been previously presented in a comprehensive manner.

University Galleries is open year-round: daily throughout the academic year and Monday-Saturday during the summer. All exhibitions and events are free and open to the general public.
