The VSU Art Department Student Gallery offers a unique venue for student/class exhibitions, installations, and collaborative ventures. A student interested in exhibiting must submit a signed gallery contract, a written proposal briefly stating the intent of the desired use of the exhibition space, and 5 images representational of their written proposal. For a group exhibition one student must assume responsibility and sign the contract, though all exhibiting student names must be listed in proposal.
