Located within the School of Art+Design, the Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery presents exhibitions that provide professional context for students and interact with their daily classroom experience. The gallery’s program focuses on emerging artists, A+D alumni, current faculty, and student work.  This series includes yearly MFA and BFA student group exhibitions. In conjunction with the Neuberger Museum, the School also connects artists whose work is featured in an exhibition at the Museum with students, often times as a project space. Through this connection, students have the unique opportunity to work with a practicing exhibiting artist that isn’t a member of the School’s faculty.
