Pop-Up Exhibitions

Upcoming Pop-Up Exhibitions in the North Hall Gallery:

Designed to provide a bite-sized exhibition experience with a bit of whimsy, our rotating Pop-Ups are centered around a new theme for each display. Artists submit work that they feel best relates to the theme, and the pieces are displayed in our North Hall and Fisher Room. We also feature unique solo or group exhibits throughout the season. Stop in and see what has “popped up”!
