UCA faculty, staff and students visit the gallery at their convenience during regular open hours, or upon appointment with the director. Optional commentary includes: a short overview of the exhibitions on view, a 30-minute orientation to the exhibits with discussion and explanation of selected works, or a presentation tailored to class objectives provided by the instructor or professor.
