The art galleries and exhibits at Clemson University
There are several galleries on and off campus maintained by the Center for Visual Arts that provide the university and surrounding community with access to regional, national and international artists through a wide range of exhibitions and special events that examine contemporary issues underscoring academic programs while serving the broader mission of the institution. The galleries are recognized as significant venues that feature regional and national artists throughout their programming.

The galleries also showcase artwork of undergraduate and graduate visual art students enrolled in the department of art academic program. Students are required to present a final thesis of their creative research in a professional exhibition format as part of their degree fulfillment. Students also deliver public presentations about the content, inspiration and historical context of their work during their exhibitions in the Lee Gallery.

Galleries, special exhibits, artwork and/or showcases can be found on the main campus in the flagship gallery, Lee Gallery in Lee Hall I, as well as the Acorn Gallery in Lee Hall II; College of Architecture Arts and Humanities Dean’s Gallery in Strode Tower; Sikes Hall; Emery A.
