Student Exhibitions and Guidelines

Exhibitions are a vibrant aspect of the creative life at Brown University. There are many opportunities for students to submit their work for juried, curated or open calls across campus.

The List Art Building houses exhibition spaces that are primarily dedicated, during the academic year, to the display of student work. Space is assigned to students one semester in advance by lottery. During the Spring semester the List Art Building Student Galleries are almost exclusively dedicated to the exhibition of Senior Capstone Exhibitions.

Other galleries that support the exhibit of student work are located in the Granoff Center for Creative Arts, the Faunce Student Center, Hillel Center and the Sarah Doyle Gallery.

Senior Capstone Exhibition

Concentrators are required to produce a body of work and mount a week-long exhibit in one of our student galleries during their senior year.

Annual Juried Student Exhibition

The Annual Juried Student Exhibition is held in the spring semester of each year and is organized by a committee of students working collaboratively with the Brown Arts Institute, and other partnering organizations administrators. The committee has a faculty advisor, who is available to assist in organizing a comprehensive exhibition at one of the galleries located on Brown University's campus. The work of the committee includes publicity, hanging, opening, etc. Appointed jurors decide which submissions will be shown and award prizes that are announced during the opening reception.
