Finding Aid Friday: Memorial Union Art Gallery Records

This week’s feature in our Finding Aid Friday series is the collection of Memorial Union Art Gallery Records.

The Memorial Union Art Gallery began as “The Painting of the Month” in the 1950s featuring the work of the Art Department faculty and students. An enclosed gallery was established on the fourth floor of the expanded Memorial Union Tower in 1966. In 2008, the Art Gallery was transformed into the Art Lounge.

The collection contains exhibit files which include artist information, press releases, correspondence between artists and the Gallery Manager, installation notes, publicity materials, exhibit catalogs, and slides.
