Stanford Art Gallery, a 1900sq. ft. exhibition space, is an integral part of the programs, research and curricula of the Department of Art & Art History.
During the summer and fall quarters, high-quality exhibitions are sponsored by the Department and are presented to engage the university and wider community in stimulating dialogue facilitated by historical and contemporary visual language and culture. In addition, the Gallery annually presents three MFA shows:
Each year, PhD candidates in Art History collaborate with the 2nd year Art Practice students to produce an exhibition catalog to pair with the Thesis exhibition.
