Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery

ArtCenter elevates the learning environment with its rotation of cutting edge exhibitions featuring world-class artists and design luminaries.

The 4,600-square-foot Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery draws inspiration from all the fertile domains of ArtCenter’s educational programs, producing three major exhibitions per year. Its goal is to be an active partner in the education of intelligent and spirited students who shape visual culture in the future, and to engage the broader public community in a progressive dialogue about art and design for the 21st century. To accomplish this goal, the gallery connects the College’s curriculum and student population to both established and emerging artists, looking to history and science, as well as to the present. The gallery has become a leader in the exploration of products, concepts and expressions forged at the intersection of art, science and new technologies.

Every exhibition in the Williamson Gallery is perceived as an educational hub extending directly into the classroom. The gallery offers students an opportunity to form authentic and critical insights based upon a first-hand experience of art and design. Leveraging this unique ability, exhibitions have to resonate deeply, provoke intellectual dissonance and conjure unexpected pathways of thinking.
