Contemporary Art Gallery

The Contemporary Art Gallery is located in the University Academic Center on the Houston Baptist University campus. This state-of-the art exhibition space was completed in the summer of 2012 and its inaugural exhibition, Spontaneous Memorial: A Commemorative Installation by Frank McEntire, honored the victims of 9/11.

The mission of the Contemporary Art Gallery is to encourage contemporary artists to challenge and educate public perceptions of civic and social ideas and aesthetic and spiritual consciousness. The gallery functions as a teaching laboratory, hosts gallery tours and lectures by art department faculty and visiting artists, and periodically tours its exhibitions to other exhibition venues.
