The Gund Gallery regularly hosts events throughout the academic year. These events are open to the public and free to attend, just as our exhibitions are presented without an admission fee. Offerings include both regular, ongoing programs and special, one-time-only events. Programs and special events are tied to the exhibitions on view at a given time, making each season a unique experience. Below is a look at the ongoing programs you can expect to see at the Gund Gallery.

Children and Families

Art Hour
Art Hour is an art-making workshop series for children and families designed to be complete at home. Each session highlights one piece from the Gund Gallery collection or current exhibitions and guides attendees through a related craft project that can be completed in real-time over Zoom. Easy-to-follow written instructions will also be supplied for those who want to complete the projects on a schedule that works for them.


The Gund Gallery regularly hosts curated film series that relate directly to the exhibitions on view.

Dance Performances and Workshops

Both student dance works and those of international prominence have been performed at the Gund. Many performances are in direct response to the exhibitions on view, activating the gallery space in new and exciting ways.

Student Events

Late Night at the Gund Gallery
Join the Gund Gallery Associates for an evening of surprises and creativity, ranging from musical performances to hands-on art projects. Come and enjoy food, art, and conversation. 8-10 PM select Thursday nights while classes are in session.

Takeaway Tuesdays
Come by the Gallery Tuesdays while classes are in session to pick up a little treat made just for students by students. It might be a creative craft, mini activity, or gallery-related gift, but you’ll have to come by the Gallery between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM to find out! Each week we’ll also include a fun snack to help fuel your creativity.

The Annual Pop-Up Show
The Pop-Up Show is a juried exhibit featuring artwork from student artists from Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and Central Ohio Technical College.
