Harry Wood Gallery
The Harry Wood Gallery provides art students with a constant inspiration and a place to showcase their work.
Named after Emeritus Professor Harry Wood, the former chair of the Art Department, the Harry Wood Gallery of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts was established in 1971.
Along with the Step Gallery, this gallery serves first as a venue for Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions, which represent one of the requirements for the fulfillment of the MFA degree under School of Art and Graduate Education procedures. Each exhibition must undergo an oral thesis defense before a committee of select School of Art faculty.
Harry Wood Gallery accepts exhibition proposals, which are subject to application and approval from the Galleries Director and the Gallery Advisory Committee. The gallery also serves as a venue for annual exhibitions, such as the Nathan Cummings Summer Travel Award Exhibition, New Graduate Exhibition, Winter BFA Exhibition, and Summer MFA Exhibition. Other exhibitions that may occur when the schedule permits include those organized by different concentration areas or media-specific student organizations such as A Buncha Book Artists (ABBA) and the Printmaking Students Association (PSA).
As part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, Harry Wood Gallery hosts exhibitions of artworks in which the content, subject matter or themes may challenge the sensibilities, perceptions and beliefs of some individuals. Please exercise discretion when choosing to view the works and preview for children.
