Student Space Galleries

The Student Space Galleries consist of four separate gallery spaces on the MICA campus dedicated exclusively to showing student work throughout the year.


While the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, the deadline for Student Space Gallery applications will remain March 30 at 4:00 PM, in an effort to maintain our current program timeline. Should we choose to extend the application deadline beyond March 30, we will announce so on this page.

We understand that documenting your artwork may be more difficult given current circumstances. The quality of documentation will not be held against any applicant. All work will be reviewed with the understanding that applicants may not have had access to MICA resources. We ask that you document/photograph your work to the best of your abilities, if you have your work with you to do so. We will also accept old photos or mock-ups of work in progress, if you do not have your work readily available for documentation.

The Piano Gallery, located on the first floor of Meyerhoff House, is a versatile space that is ideal for displaying paintings, illustrations, photographs and some sculptures.

Pinkard Student Space Gallery, housed on the first floor of the Bunting Center across from the Decker Library, is most conducive for works of video, interactive media, installation, sculpture and fibers. This is the only gallery that can be painted. 

The Gateway is home to two Student Space Galleries. Both galleries in the Gateway can be found on the first floor, outside BBOX Theater. These two gallery spaces are best suited for two dimensional work, sculpture and installations. Larger pieces work extremely well in this open space.

Students may propose their ideas for altering any of these spaces to the Exhibitions Department. All spaces must return back to their original state as part of the student's de-installation process. The Exhibitions Department will lend advice - however, they will not install the artwork. Students may check out tools through the Exhibitions Department or borrow a toolbox from Student Activities with a valid ID.
