The Department of Fine and Performing Arts, Olive DeLuce Gallery annually presents contemporary programming which represents traditional and experimental visual arts disciplines. Each exhibiting artist presents a public slide lecture. Visiting artists presentations are held roughly once per month during the academic year. Each lecture is followed by an artist reception to mark the opening of each show and promote dialogue between the viewing public, the students, art department faculty and the featured visiting artist. Lectures and artists receptions are free and open to the public.
