Sand Point Gallery


Sand Point Gallery contributes to the vitality of the School by providing a venue for exhibitions, installations, performances, forums, lectures, and media presentations that are curated, organized, and presented by the faculty, graduate students, or undergraduate students of the School.

Event Proposals


School faculty and students are welcome to apply. Student applications (both graduate and undergraduate) must be accompanied by a faculty signature of support.

Time Frame

Standard time frame for exhibitions is approximately three weeks, although other periods of time may be assigned due to high demand or will be considered upon request. Single night or weekend uses for performances and other events will also be considered.


If you are planning to serve alcohol at an opening, event, or reception, you must apply for a permit. It is recommended that you do this at least three weeks in advance. Contact Ruth Kazmerzak for instructions.
