Exhibitions

PAC gallery

The GVSU Art Gallery organizes and maintains exhibitions in six gallery spaces across the Allendale and Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids campuses. Our main gallery is in the Thomas J. and Marcia J. Haas Center for Performing Arts. The George and Barbara Gordon Gallery, in the Richard M. DeVos Center on the Pew Grand Rapids campus, features the work of local painter Mathias Alten who lived and worked in Grand Rapids in the early 20th century. 

Each semester we activate all our gallery spaces with new exhibitions and offer learning events that will help guests engage with the work on display.. For gallery locations, directions, and parking information, visit our Galleries page.
