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.
