Kean University has a rich and diverse exhibition program in five gallery spaces. Our shows are carefully curated to integrate the visual arts with academic programs throughout the university. Exhibitions in the Karl and Helen Burger Gallery focus on cultural identity and often are interdisciplinary in nature. The Human Rights Institute Gallery highlights issues related to human rights violations and victories around the world. As an educational resource, exhibitions regularly feature the work of faculty and students in the James Howe Gallery, and regional artists and visitors in the Nancy Dryfoos Gallery. Many students get their first opportunity to show their work in the Student Gallery. At Kean University, we believe that art can be an effective vehicle for social change and in building awareness of critical global issues.
