Art Exhibitions


In the years since the Center for Government and International Studies (CGIS) hosted its first art exhibition in 2006, it has seen an average rotation of 20 annual art exhibitions.
What began as an attempt to fill the bare walls with temporal art in the time and space before permanent works had been procured, has instead become a chance to share what are now oft-used venues for hosting exhibits by the varying CGIS departments and centers.

It seems the popularity of these venues has grown with the rising awareness by the different pedagogic entities of how the visual can augment and enhance their academic symposiums, conferences, and lectures – adding perhaps another dimension of interest, perhaps too bringing in a wider more diverse audience than they would otherwise.
