About the Permanent Collection
The Department of Art's permanent collection holds over 500 pieces dating from 1964 to the present, and primarily purchased from talented UWG students enrolled in art courses, in addition to visiting professional artists. As a whole, the collection's fifty years of work provides an insightful document and cultural history of the University and the Department of Art. The collection's strengths include pieces from the printmaking and painting programs, while artwork from photography, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics is also represented. Through an active loan program, such work is available for check out and, as a result, may be seen across the University. Thanks to a recent SRAP grant in 2012-2013, the collection was reinventoried and photographed. For more information, contact the Department of Art's Visual Resources Center at

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.

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.
