Class Visits to the Art Gallery

The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland is committed to educating students of all ages about the joys of creativity and contemporary art. The Art Gallery currently works with public, private, and home school teachers to complement various arts learning programs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.


The University of Maryland Art Gallery was established in 1966 and endowed with its first major collection of prints and drawings from Martin A. Brown. Initially housed in the Tawes Fine Arts Center, the Gallery moved into an expanded site located in the Art-Sociology Building (currenty Parren J. Mitchell Art-Sociology Building) in 1976.


It is the mission of the University of Maryland Art Gallery to be a national leader in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists, a supporter of new and innovative scholarship, and a vital part of the local and University cultural landscape.
