The University of North Texas Art Galleries support the educational mission of the university, enrich the aesthetic environment of the community and serve as a cultural resource for the public at large. Through a focus on curatorial, student, and faculty projects involving vanguard contemporary art, the galleries challenge and promote the current discourse surrounding living artists and their works.
Events & Programs
The CVAD Art Collection supports curriculum through exhibition and research and enriches the campus environment through a popular lending program. Comprised largely of works on paper, the Collection has been developed through gifts made by past faculty, students, private donors, and foundations as well as historical purchase prizes associated with the Voertman Student Juried Exhibition and the Mattil Honors award.
Art in Public Places celebrates the acquisition and display of artworks on the UNT Denton campus as early as 1935. Art in Public Places includes a Percent for Art program, with our newest acquisitions by Norie Sato and Murielle White in the new UNT Student Union.
The UNT Art Galleries serve not only UNT students, faculty and staff, but also our local and regional communities as well as our national academic and museum colleagues. Our Saturday Series offers weekend family fun led by CVAD student art educators and a local guest artist. The UNT Artist-in-Residence program brings to Denton internationally renowned artists, who share their visions, talents, and experience in public lectures and programs. Our collaborations with CVAD faculty provide insightful experiences with the history and culture of art. We invite you to connect with us!
