Gallery Spaces 

The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center has a number of spaces available for mounting exhibitions that support the academic mission of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. The following spaces are programmed by the Exhibitions Committee within the department.

King Street Gallery

The King Street Gallery is the largest exhibition space in the Cafritz Arts Center. This 1050 square foot gallery is in the main atrium of the building. Its prominent location, open design, and extremely high ceilings (30 feet+) make it a great venue for major exhibitions. While much of this gallery space is visible from the main lobby of the building, and through the windows that front onto the street, it does maintain gallery hours and is locked after hours. The gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.– 4 p.m.

Open Gallery 

The Open Gallery is a high visibility space nestled between the Department of Visual and Performing Arts office and the lounge vending area on the main floor of the Cafritz Arts Center. It is also adjacent to the King Street Gallery and is the first space you see when entering the building from Jesup Blair Road.

The Maze Gallery is an open space with a number of angled walls on the second floor of the Cafritz Arts Center. This space is in the hub of the building where students gather and is often used to exhibit students' works and smaller exhibitions.
