The George Caleb Bingham Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the Fine Arts Building, within the Department of Art. As the campus’ only contemporary art space, Bingham Gallery serves the entire MU and Columbia community by bringing high-quality, contemporary art exhibits, events, and visiting artists to our campus. Gallery events are always free and open to the public, and the Gallery Committee schedules exhibitions with the most possible educational value, crossing disciplines and collaborating with other departments whenever possible. For a large portion of the gallery’s annual shows, students are the exhibiting artists. Preparing for and mounting a show is an important part of the educational experience for the undergraduate and graduate students in Art program.
