Mission Statement

The mission of The Art Gallery at Rivier University is to present exhibitions that complement and enhance the university’s academic offerings, particularly those in art history, studio art, and design. It furthermore collects, administers, stores, and preserves the Rivier University Permanent Collection of Art for purposes of study, research, and exhibition.

The Art Gallery produces four to five exhibitions each academic year. Often accompanied by written commentary, lectures, gallery talks, or panel discussions, exhibitions aim to educate students, the broader campus community, and the general public about both historic and emerging art forms.
