CI art galleries

Where art, opportunity and innovation intersect

By Marya Jones Barlow

There’s no need to travel to Los Angeles to experience the work of internationally recognized and up-and-coming regional artists. CI’s four art galleries, all coordinated by the Art program, offer a free forum for students, artists and arts enthusiasts to explore and enjoy art.

Each month-long exhibition kicks off with an opening reception that invites the public to interact with the art and artist. The distinct character of each gallery space accommodates a full spectrum of artistic styles, media and talent. CI galleries also offer opportunities for faculty and featured artists to install exhibits and curate shows, and for students to participate as exhibitors, interns and curators.

Don’t miss the remaining exhibitions of the 2015-16 season:
