The Fine Arts Center Galleries contribute to the enrichment of the broader area community while supporting the academic mission of the University. Twelve to fourteen annual exhibitions include challenging contemporary work by nationally recognized artists as well as faculty and student shows that highlight some of the most talented and successful artists of this region.  Visitors may experience events and artist presentations that can personalize their encounters and open up new awareness of political, social and cultural ideas.


The Ohio Arts Council helped fund the BGSU Fine Arts Center Galleries with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. OAC Website.
