Gallery 2 and the Visual Arts Building Installation space both serve as primary gallery spaces for students and are dedicated to the experimentation and development of student artists as they progress toward their professional careers.
The Atrium Gallery features a permanent exhibition of the only full-scale replica of the Bayeux Tapestry in North America. The 30-foot-long, painted cloth depicts the events leading up to the 1066 Norman invasion of England, along with the invasion itself.
Located throughout the campus grounds, the Sculpture on Campus Program includes rotating exhibitions of sculpture from some of the most exciting artists working today.
The Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series brings creative and talented individuals to campus for one to three days to interact with students and faculty, creating opportunities for demonstrations and discourse.
Carrollton Collects: Prints from the WPA exhibition features original prints from UWG's permanent collection and the collections of local residents. On display are works commissioned as part of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration and the Federal Art Project of the 1930s.
Roosevelt's Federal Art Project, a part of the WPA, could be considered a Depression era stimulus package. Its goal was to provide work for artists. It was also meant to raise the spirits and confidence of citizens across the country, through theater, dance, art education, and the fine and graphic arts. This highly successful and historically significant project brought a myriad of art forms to humble locations and non-traditional settings. It cut across financial and racial boundaries, and revealed the melting pot that was the American artist while documenting a cross-section of America before the technology-saturated world of today.
