The mission of the Humanities Fine Arts Gallery is to provide a dynamic and accessible venue that supports the educational, cultural and artistic experiences of students, faculty, and the community. The gallery promotes diverse cultural and personal perspectives in both innovative and traditional art exhibitions linking our community with the global art world. The HFA Gallery has operated on the assumption that the visual arts is central to a liberal arts institution as a fundamental means of communicating beliefs, values, concepts, and visions.

First principles of operation have been that the institution through the gallery is to support artists by offering them a suitable place to show their work, to visit the campus and to become involved in a dialogue about their work with faculty and students, and to provide full financial support for shipment and insurance of work as well as travel, accommodations, and per diem expenses.

The HFA Gallery is a multilevel gallery space. The main floor consists of 2400 sq. feet; the second floor encompasses the Mezzanine Gallery, which overlooks the main floor and is made up of 800 sq. ft. Exact wall lengths and heights are enclosed in HFA Gallery plans.


A brief, typed cover letter explaining the work and general purpose of your exhibitions. Please indicate any unusual conditions or requirements it may involve.
