Virtual Gallery • Millersville University

Breidenstine Hall • Virtual Gallery

The Virtual Gallery made it's presence in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic plaguing the world during uncertain times.  It rapidly transformed MU's current educational structure from it's predominantly face-to-face syncronous presence, to an online asyncronous format, almost overnight.  As we didn't want to deprive our students of their culminating BFA or classroom exhibit, instead of presenting their works live, we are bringing them to you online.  The events currently presented in our virtual gallery are those that would have been either in our third floor gallery, Swift, or downtown Lancaster, in the Ware Center.  But this semester, we are taking this further, broadening our horizons, and created an exhibit outside.  We, the faculty and staff of Art & Design at Millersville University proudly continue to present the works of our students.
