Central to the Painting BFA and MFA programs, Memorial Hall Gallery houses exhibitions by visiting artists and curators, faculty and peers, letting students directly access works by artists at the forefront of contemporary practice. Through related symposia, students engage with exhibitors about their work and on current issues in the field. The gallery also hosts one of Painting’s milestone events, the annual senior thesis exhibitions for BFA candidates.
