Sam Francis Gallery

The Sam Francis Gallery, located in the Peter Boxenbaum Arts Education Centre on the 21st Street Campus, is dedicated to the display of student art and to presenting cutting-edge exhibitions of work by locally and nationally prominent artists.
Thematically-based group exhibitions are often organized by independent curators and participating artists give public lectures and student workshops. Each spring, a group of student curators works with the Gallery director to organize an exhibition of works by local artists.

  • Works in Process, Sustainability

    Crossroads Middle School art students and faculty muse on how the studio, gallery and museum environments can also be a laboratory of sustainable practices. “Works in Process, Sustainability” encourages students to consider art in terms of ecological making. There are a range of approaches exhibited. Some projects engage in advocacy. Others explore the material economies of art-making and production by focusing on the art materials market; products and their packaging; upcycling; and sustainable local sourcing of materials.
