The recently renovated Donald & Linda Silpe Gallery is located in Taub Hall, the main facility of the Hartford Art School. The primary mission of the Silpe Gallery is to provide a showcase for student work and to provide students with the experience of preparing and installing an exhibition. Student exhibits are scheduled throughout the academic year and include MFA thesis, BFA, departmental, and individual as well as group shows sponsored by the Hartford Art School. In addition, the gallery hosts many special events and visiting artist lectures during the year. The Silpe Gallery also is available to other organizations and individuals on a selective basis for purposes that are compatible with, or enhance the mission of, the Hartford Art School.
