About East | West Galleries

Mission Statement

The East | West Galleries at Texas Woman’s University are dedicated to understanding and promoting contemporary art as a tool and a catalyst for education. The East | West Galleries consistently present exhibitions and programming that examine the cultural and social contexts around us, challenge contemporary perceptions of art making, and provide a framework for intellectual and creative inquiry.

By inviting established and emerging contemporary artists, designers, critics and curators of national and international stature from off-campus as well as within, and setting them in direct dialogue with students and local audiences, the East | West Galleries establish immediate relevancy in the University and community.

The East | West Galleries vision is well-aligned with Texas Woman’s University’s commitment to “educate and empower our students, especially ensuring opportunities for women and minorities, to become leaders in our society through excellence in the visual arts.”
