Myhren Gallery

Click here to visit the Vicki Myhren Gallery website

The Vicki Myhren Gallery is the main exhibition venue at the School of Art & Art History. Integral to the educational mission of the SAAH, it provides an opportunity for students to experience exhibitions and interdisciplinary programs exploring the visual arts. Exhibitions feature work by artists from SAAH as well as work from regionally, nationally and internationally known artists.

Students can take advantage of the Gallery in many ways, ranging from simply enjoying current exhibitions, attending lectures and panels hosted by the Gallery, to informal visits with artists, collectors and others involved in the creation and presentation of art.

The Vicki Myhren Gallery hosts an annual exhibition of the work of graduating students in the BFA program, and also supports student exhibition programs in the main lobby of the Shwayder Art Building and Gallery 023.

A growing corps of undergraduate employees and volunteers serve as gallery attendants and marketing ambassadors. Through the Gallery, many of our graduate students gain significant hands-on experience in:

  •     Exhibitions
  •     Collections management and research (often through our partner program, the University Art Collections)
  •     Museum publications

Our principal educational goal for student employees and volunteers is to supplement coursework and off-campus activities of SAAH programs.   Although most of our graduate student employees specialize in museum studies while pursuing the masters degree in Art History, we also work successfully with students from Anthropology, Library Science, and other affiliated disciplines.

We encourage both graduate and undergraduate students to investigate opportunities to participate, by visiting our DU Student Exhibit and Opportunity Portfolio page, or by contacting us at [email protected] or 303-871-4445.
