The Art Gallery department hires student employees each semester to help with care and maintenance of the collection, exhibitions, events, social media, special projects, and more. We invite students to engage with artwork in a variety of ways and share their experiences in our Student Perspectives blog. In addition, many of our learning events each semester are INT 100/201 approved.

GVSU students are invited to submit their thoughts on an artwork from the collection. Perhaps you've noticed a particularly compelling painting in your res hall? Or maybe you can't stop looking at the sculpture outside your classroom? Or you've browsed the online Art Collection and found a series of artworks that speak to you! Gather your thoughts, type up 200-300 words and submit your perspective via the online form
