New Wight Gallery

Broad Art Center Gallery Wing, Room 1100

The New Wight Gallery is vital for the visual arts on campus, both as a venue for exhibiting student work and as a forum for discussion. Graduate students organize a biennial exhibition of graduate-level artwork selected from on-site studio visits by graduate students to a number of the most prestigious art schools and university art departments in North America and abroad. Student art exhibitions take place in the New Wight Gallery throughout the academic year, including:

  • M.F.A. fall preview group exhibition
  • M.F.A. exhibitions in the winter and spring quarters
  • an exhibition of M.F.A candidates from Southern California or around the world, curated by UCLA M.F.A. candidates
  • undergraduate scholarship award exhibition
  • undergraduate juried exhibition, organized by a guest curator
  • undergraduate senior exhibition
