What is the Gallery?
Sponsored by the Honors College and the Common Experience at Texas State University, The Gallery of the Common Experience showcases art exhibits relating to this year's Common Experience theme. In the past these exhibits have included artwork meant to provoke thought on the definition of Chicano identity, photo depictions of apartheid South Africa during the onset of AIDS, and political cartoons of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. The gallery also hosts special events throughout the year including free art workshops, artist talks, and public art events on the Quad.
When and Where Can I View the Gallery?
The Gallery is located in LAMP 407 (the Honors Coffee Forum) and is open to the public free of charge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
