About the Galleries

UNF Gallery of Art


The University of North Florida Gallery of Art is an educational institution that was founded in 1981. Located in the heart of campus next to the Peace Plaza, in Founders Hall, the UNF Gallery's mission is to serve students, faculty, and staff by exhibiting works that support the educational mission of the university and its role in society through the diversity of disciplines, lectures, workshops, teaching, and dialogue. 


The gallery fulfills this mission by exhibiting student and faculty work on a rotating basis throughout the academic year, and by maintaining the collections management initiative of cataloging and exhibiting works from the university's permanent collection in spaces on campus.
