Our Mission

 Primarily a teaching gallery, the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery seeks to serve the University‚Äôs Art Department by offering exhibitions of the highest quality, offering a bridge between the learning environment and the diverse range of contemporary artistic practice.  Creative thinking demands direct interaction with art that speaks through many voices.
