ABOUT

 

MISSION

The University of Florida University Galleries’ mission is to be a platform for relevant and experimental art research and a place where pressing contemporary conversations are amplified and shared with the university and expanded communities. The UG advances the School of Art + Art History’s commitment to the visual arts by offering an experimental space to bring people together around art and ideas, improving accessibility and inclusivity through direct student and community engagement; increasing the school’s visibility as a center for critical discourse around artistic research, production, and scholarship, leading with preeminent programming.

 

THE GALLERIES

University Galleries are comprised of three art galleries. University Gallery (UG) provides the greater Gainesville community with a contemporary venue that explores new directions in visual art, incorporating historical perspectives. Exhibitions feature nationally and internationally known artists, studio art faculty, and MFA graduating thesis projects. The Gary R. Libby Gallery and the Constance and Linton Grinter Gallery of International Art present art exhibitions that are organized by student curators, in conjunction with the director of the galleries, allowing students to learn experientially about curation, organization, and exhibition making.

 

UNIVERSITY GALLERY

University Gallery’s primary mission is to provide the greater Gainesville community with a contemporary venue that explores new directions in visual art, incorporating historical perspectives as well. UG collaborates with a myriad of UF colleges, community, and regional entities in creating a trans-disciplinary venue for artwork that is relevant to education at UF and the greater north-central Florida region.  Exhibitions feature nationally/internationally known artists, a studio art faculty exhibition, and MFA graduating thesis project exhibitions.

GARY R. LIBBY GALLERY

Gary R. Libby Gallery presents art exhibitions that are organized by student curators, in conjunction with the director of the galleries, providing an opportunity for students to learn experientially about curation, exhibition design, and presentation, and visitors to view professionally presented shows that primarily feature contemporary art.

CONSTANCE AND LINTON GRINTER GALLERY OF INTERNATIONAL ART

Constance and Linton Grinter Gallery of International Art presents exhibitions organized by graduate student curators, in conjunction with the director of the galleries that feature international and multicultural artworks. This venue allows graduate students to learn experientially about curation and exhibition design, and visitors to experience art and artifacts from across world cultures.
