About the Gallery

The Fine Arts Center Gallery is committed to showing innovative works of art within a pluralistic, culturally diverse setting. Our mission is to bring students and visitors into contact with current issues in art and society and to feature work that inspires, challenges, and informs. Each show is developed for its potential to engage the University’s diverse student body, to encourage viewers to think differently about a variety of issues, and to build community through the work of innovative artists. As a part of our mission, we are dedicated to exhibiting work by members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the field and who can contribute to the excellence of the community at Northeastern Illinois University. The gallery offers a variety of programming including artist talks and workshops by selected exhibiting artists and curators. All events are free and open to the public.
