The University of Rochester’s Hartnett Gallery, located in Wilson Commons, is a student-supported, professional art gallery. Named for alumnus John B. Hartnett, this unique gallery space was designed by the renowned architects of I.M. Pei and Associates in 1972. Hartnett schedules and presents 5 to 7 exhibitions each academic year. These vary from solo shows to group exhibitions featuring local, state, national, and international artists, with an undergraduate juried exhibition held each year. A wide variety of media and genres are shown, including sculpture, photography, painting, video, and installation work, as well as curatorial and community projects. On occasion, Hartnett Gallery also plans exhibitions in conjunction with local institutions such as the Memorial Art Gallery and the Visual Studies Workshop.
Admission to the gallery, receptions, and presentations is free and the gallery is open to the public.
