Goodyear Gallery

The Goodyear Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the work of contemporary artists and student work. Gallery programming is focused on providing support to classes in the department and affording students the opportunity to learn from working artists through exhibition preparation, and maintaining and curating the gallery space. Most exhibitions have opening receptions that often include artist talks and are open to the general public. *The gallery is located in the rear of the Goodyear Building near the studio art facilities and can be accessed by using the Cedar Street parking lot entrance.

The Goodyear Project Wall

The Goodyear Project Wall is located outside of the Goodyear Gallery and is dedicated to large-scale public art projects that are collaborative in nature. The inaugural project for the wall took place in September of 2013 and featured a collaborative project between artist Paul Manlove and a group of fourteen students and faculty. For the 2018-2019 Wall Mural by Deirdre Murphy, please refer to the Conodoguinet: A Long Way with Many Birds Key in PDF format and is located on the mural.
