The Mildred Hawn Exhibition Gallery in the Jake and Nancy Hamon Arts Library, SMU, serves a central role of community engagement in the arts. The mission of the gallery is to hold exhibitions by professionals in the performing and visual arts, regionally, nationally and abroad, which center on academic areas represented in the Hamon Arts Library’s collections and the curriculum of the Meadows School of the Arts and to encourage and share critical discourse with its patron community. These exhibitions serve as a provocative and extended experience in the learning environment of Hamon and Meadows through its installations, gallery talks and Hamon blog.
Located on the first floor of the Hamon Arts Library, the Hawn Gallery and adjacent lobby offer a rotating installation of exhibitions. For more information on exhibitions, please see the current and past exhibitions.
The gallery exhibitions are free to the SMU community and the public.
