About the School of Art Atrium Gallery
The mission of the School of Art Atrium Gallery is the promotion and appreciation of the visual arts for studio artists, educators, and designers. As a part of the School of Art at Ball State, the gallery serves as an important educational tool as it provides opportunities for students, faculty, and the broader arts community to showcase works and view the artwork of others. Educational benefits for the university community are the purpose of all exhibits.
The Atrium Gallery is located on the first floor of the Art and Journalism Building, adjacent from the Ball State Bookstore and near the building's main elevator and staircase.
For more information about exhibitions and reception dates, see the Ball State University calendar.
Normal Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm and Saturdays 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Closed Sundays and all Ball State breaks and holidays.
Photography and Video Policy in Atrium Gallery
Visitors are not permitted to photograph artwork or record videos in the Atrium Gallery.
All of the artworks exhibited in the gallery are either on loan to the gallery, which means the gallery does not have exclusive rights to the artworks, or under current copyright with the living artists. Photographers and videographers who seek exception to this rule need to contact the Gallery Associate in advance of their visit.
Student artworks exhibited in the Atrium Gallery may be photographed or otherwise preserved by Ball State University and Ball State University Libraries for historic documentation, educational use, promotional materials, and other purposes.
