The Project Space

The Project Space

The Project Space is a gallery open to all students and faculty to explore, test out and showcase new and experimental works. Students are encouraged to sign out the gallery to orchestrate their own shows. 

About

The gallery's back wall is 28.5', the side two walls are approximately 21' while the front wall is almost entirely glass. This glass front allows for viewing of works 24/7 without the gallery needing to be open.

The Project Space is primarily designed to function as an experimental space for short run shows where students organize and hang their own exhibits. Here student's are encouraged to show new works, works in progress and develop an environment that encourages dialog on art practice. Since it's inception students and instructors have mounted installations, staged performances, created soundscapes, shown videos works and put together exhibits of international artists.
