Campus Galleries

UNW’s galleries provide students with the opportunity to exhibit their work and engage professional shows.


The Denler Gallery serves as the University of Northwestern’s principal art gallery. The space rotates an average of six exhibitions per year, including shows by local and national artists, an annual juried student exhibition, and work by Art & Design seniors from each discipline.

The Naz Student Gallery operates as an exhibition space for Art & Design students of any year and discipline. It also holds shows for the advance studio classes. It is currently managed by Student Gallery Director, Kelly Stranberg (Animation & Illustration, ’21).

Maintained by the Department of Art & Design, the University Art Collection serves both as a teaching resource and a source of enjoyment for the public spaces and offices around campus.
