About the Gallery

The purpose of the UConn Stamford Art Gallery is to support the University’s educational mission by stimulating active learning and dialogue about the arts and the creative process. In fact, Faculty members have brought their classes into the gallery as a means of incorporating an exhibit into their course’s curriculum. The gallery offers visitors a welcoming environment, which attracts regional artists and community members to a high caliber exhibitions and programs.


The Gallery is a large, inviting space located off the Main Concourse, which serves as the heart of the campus, located in downtown Stamford, with easy access to parking and public transportation. Visitors enter the Gallery from the Concourse or from a second entrance that is visible from Washington Boulevard and lit by a dramatic three-story light spine. The Gallery is approximately 25 feet wide by 70 feet long.
