Ponder both the provincial and universal elements of space above and around the Earth’s surface.
Our primary exhibition spaces include The Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery, housed at ArtCenter’s Hillside Campus; ArtCenter DTLA, located in Los Angeles’ vibrant historic core; and our two South Campus spaces: The HMCT South Campus Gallery and the Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery. While each of these venues maintains a distinct mission and vision, they share a unified intent to spark vital conversations among and around emerging and established works of art and design that are addressing the most pressing issues of our times.
The scope of the Exhibitions Department extends beyond ArtCenter’s formal exhibition spaces to include indoor or outdoor locations that showcase long-term or pop-up displays of artwork.
These additional exhibition spaces include the Hillside Student Gallery, a rotating selection of exemplary student projects; the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall, curated by the Fine Art and Illustration Departments; Outside In murals created by street artists RISK and Kenny Scharf; a Keith Haring mural, painted on-site by the artist/activist in 1989 in conjunction with the second annual World AIDS Day; the Petersen Automotive Museum, which includes a 2,000 square foot exhibition space and satellite studio; and our Sculpture Garden, a sprawling lawn that contains a handful of permanent, landscape adorning sculptures.
