The Pollock Gallery plays a significant and valuable academic role in the University’s learning environment. A university art gallery is by its nature a logical extension of the studio classroom, and as such, it provides a place for the thoughtful and scholarly presentation and consideration of present and past artists and art forms. It is historically the proper vehicle for the study and examination of art, providing the Division of Art an arena for making the connections critical to the educational process.
Over the years, exhibitions organized and curated by the gallery have provided students, faculty, staff and the general public with opportunities to experience a well-considered and wide array of works of art from different artists, time periods and cultures. Sharing this resource with other academic institutions is achieved through the scholarly production of publications, gallery talks and symposia.
