Home About MU Arts on Campus

Arts on Campus

A thriving arts culture complements the overall liberal arts education that is a hallmark of Marymount University.  Our galleries celebrate local, regional, national and international artists, present and promote new art media, and foster understanding and appreciation among our culturally diverse community. A full slate of student, faculty and staff exhibits, along with guest artist shows throughout the academic year, bring an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary original work. Our campus and Arlington community audiences benefit from exposure to a wide range of established artists as well as emerging talents.

Ballston Center Gallery

Newly opened in 2017, Ballston Center Gallery is a brand new exhibition space presenting contemporary, cutting-edge installations that promote discussion, education and partnerships. Here, the complexities of the human experience are explored and celebrated in a dynamic, engaging space on the second floor of the new Marymount University Ballston Center at 1000 N. Glebe Road. The gallery is within walking distance of the Ballston-MU Metro stop on the Orange/Silver line.

Throughout its nearly 30 years, the gallery has presented hundreds of public exhibits and artist’s receptions.
