The Mesa College Art Gallery is an educational forum to present the work of professional artists in a range of media and dealing with diverse issues.
The gallery also showcases outstanding artwork created by students in the Art Department.
It is our mission to enrich and engage our student community through art. The gallery exhibits are complemented with artist lectures, workshops, and guided tours.
The works on display reflect a variety of topics in order to engage students from other disciplines and departments. We have created exhibits in collaboration with Chicano Studies, Women Studies and the Black Studies department.
The gallery serves as a laboratory for the Art Department's Museum Studies Program. The college is the only San Diego institution to offer an Associates and Certification in Museum Studies/Gallery Exhibition Skills.
During the academic year four exhibits features art by emerging and established contemporary artists.
A student exhibition is held at the end of every semester. Besides exhibits in our main space, D101, the Art Gallery program and the Museum Studies classes also curate exhibits in the LRC, 2nd Floor Art Corridor.
