Fine Arts Gallery

The Normandale Fine Arts Gallery is committed to providing high-quality exhibitions to encourage appreciation and understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with original works of art. Exhibits feature local, regional, and national artists, along with faculty and students shows. Exhibiting artists actively engage with the Art Department and our students by means such as giving an artist talk, collaborating with an art class, or presenting a workshop for our students.

Artist Proposals for the Fine Arts Gallery are accepted. Please email Kris Holmgren for information.
