Who We Are

Morlan Gallery, located in the Mitchell Fine Arts Center on the historic campus of Transylvania University, presents five exhibitions of contemporary art throughout the academic year. The gallery’s mission is to expose students to the work of living artists, the latest directions in theory and criticism, and variety of diverse perspectives on human behavior and concerns. Morlan Gallery strives to be a laboratory of thinking; a place to ask questions, risk, and experiment.
