The Sonnenschein Gallery and Albright Room are the main art galleries at the College. They have featured the works of famous artists including Wafaa Bilal, Thomas Nozkowski and Kate McQuillen as well as alumni Ed West ’71 and Colin Thompson ’71. The galleries have featured artwork of highly acclaimed Chicago-based artists such as Andrew Young, Diane Simpson and Laura Letinsky. A bi-annual faculty exhibit showcases the most recent work of our faculty artists. Admission to these galleries is always free.
The Deerpath Student Gallery features group exhibitions of student work, including an annual show from the Art Club, selected student curatorial projects, and exhibitions of outstanding student coursework. The gallery’s location in the Deerpath Residence Hall across the quad from the Durand Art Institute situates it as an important part of the residential cultural and social scene. Admission to the Deerpath Gallery is also free.
