The DI Gallery is a small exhibition space located on the second floor of the DI HUB, adjacent to the building’s West entrance. The gallery comprises 500 sq. ft. of floor space and 350 sq. ft. of wall space with some potential for spill-over into adjacent spaces. The space also boasts natural lighting, artificial track lighting, and a retractable security gate.

This space offers all Kent State students, staff, faculty, alumni and affiliates (pending proposal submission) the opportunity to publicly display their artwork, design, research, or fabrication projects within the DI HUB. These exhibitions can be a work in progress, finished expression, example of technological or scientific innovations, or other project, but should emphasize cross-disciplinary collaborations and reflect the mission of the Design Innovation Initiative.

Executive Director, J.R. Campbell, gives a brief tour of the DI Gallery.
