Welcome back to the UCM Gallery of Art & Design Fall 2015!

After a long absence, we are ready to reintroduce this new and modern blog to UCM (University of Central Missouri) and the Warrensburg community! New posts will be published twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays).

Art Center &
Gallery Entrance 

This blog will focus on our exhibitions, student comments, artists talks, information about what is happening in the gallery, and upcoming shows. We are starting to use Periscope with our Twitter account to bring LIVE broadcast transmissions of lectures, visiting artist talks and art tours. Another application that we will use this Fall will be Aurasma. Using this application, you will get a preview of our art exhibitions. More information will be posted in our blog and our social media sites.

We have two exhibition on view in the galleries this month. In the main gallery we are exhibiting The Veteran Vision Project by the L.A. photographer Devin Mitchell, a photo essay about veterans that served in the military. In Gallery 115 we are exhibiting Dan Scott's Contemporary Fantasy Art and Illustration.
