School of Art Collection and Galleries

The School of Art Collection and Galleries are comprised of seven gallery spaces located on the Kent State University campus, downtown Kent and at the Blossom Music Center. The galleries exhibit art from local, regional, national and international artists with new exhibitions every 4-6 weeks. Students also have opportunities to exhibit their work in many of these spaces. The collection consists of over 4,000 historical and contemporary art objects contained in an open storage space located at the Center for the Visual Arts. The space is easily accessible to classes so students can get up close and even handle objects. The mission of the School of Art Collection is to collect objects important to the history of the school as well as works created by women and artists of color.
