Exhibitions at the IAS creatively reflect topics and themes that engage curricula and faculty teaching and research. They include significant artists and address some of the most critical issues of our times.
The IAS brings significant touring exhibitions to campus, and the IAS also tours original exhibitions of its own. Small shows and study gallery exhibitions are co‐curated by faculty, with student research and participation, drawing on long-term loans from UC collections, private collections and museum loans from around the country.
The exhibition program also collaborates with regional museums, galleries, and other public venues to make the innovative practices in the arts and sciences facilitated by UC Santa Cruz more accessible to broad communities and publics.
IAS exhibitions are presented at venues across the UC Santa Cruz campus, Santa Cruz, and in the Bay Area as the university continues to plan for a future capital project.
