We believe that art has the power to move people; to bridge gaps in understanding; to spark our collective imagination toward building a better, more equitable world; and to enrich learning experiences beyond the capacity of traditional classroom structures. In support of these outcomes, the Art Gallery acquires, preserves, interprets, exhibits, and makes accessible a diverse collection of art across all GVSU public spaces for the benefit of faculty, students, and community.
We seek to actively collaborate with community partners in the production of learning materials, experiences, and events, as well as the placement of art in public buildings. We support the interdisciplinary educational goals of the University and for the benefit of the community-at-large.
We believe that art matters because our shared humanity experiences and stories matter.
