Cornell Art Exhibitions
Peter Paul Luce Gallery
Peter Paul Luce Gallery is located in McWethy Hall, on First Street SW, directly across from the Thomas Commons on the Cornell College campus. The gallery exhibits artwork by regional and nationally known artists, as well as the work of Cornell College senior art majors in April and May. A generous endowment from the Henry Luce Foundation allows us to bring in visiting artists for gallery talks, lectures, and workshops.
Monday-Friday: 9-4 and Sundays: 2-4 pm
Admission is free and open to the public
(Closed during the summer months of June through August)

Other Cornell Gallery Spaces
Three additional galleries -- in Cole Library, the Ratthskeller Grill, and around the Orange Carpet in the Thomas Commons -- extend the opportunities for art exhibition and appreciation on campus. Frequently works from our own art classes fill these spaces, but we also host guest artists and display works from our collections.
While seniors in studio art culminate their efforts with shows in Cornell's gallery spaces, majors in art history take advantage of the annual Cornell Student Symposium to present the fruits of their academic work. The symposium includes presentations from students in a wide range of majors and follows the format of a professional conference.
