Stanford Art Gallery, a 1,900-square-feet exhibition space, is an integral part of the programs, research, and curricula of the Department of Art & Art History. 


In addition to our MFA shows, high-quality exhibitions are sponsored by the department and are presented to engage the university and wider community in stimulating dialogue facilitated by historical and contemporary visual language and culture. 

Each year, PhD candidates in Art History collaborate with the 2nd year Art Practice MFA students to produce an exhibition catalog to pair with the MFA Thesis exhibition.
