About the Pollock

The Pollock Gallery holds a significant and valuable academic role in the University’s learning environment in addition to playing a vital role in the Dallas/Fort Worth arts community. Exhibiting work by student and faculty members as well as emerging and established local, national and international artists, the Gallery also serves as a platform for the dissemination of ideas and discourse related to historical, modern and contemporary arts practices. Providing the Division of Art with an arena where connections critical to the educational process can develop and unfold, the Pollock Gallery functions as a hub that connects the studio classroom with contemporary arts practice and provides a place for the consideration of pedagogy, artistic production and meaning on a larger scale.

Over the years, the exhibitions and public programs organized by the Gallery have provided visitors with opportunities to experience diverse works of art from a wide range of artists, time periods and perspectives. Engagement with other academic institutions and the public at large is achieved through the scholarly production of publications, gallery talks and symposia.
