The Don B. Huntley Gallery

Community Engagement

Through utilizing the resources of seven to ten curated and juried exhibitions per year at both venues, our exhibitions and related events not only serve our campus community, but the greater community at large. Visitors from local area colleges and universities, art guilds and creative-based organizations, senior centers and retirement groups (such as The Pacesetters), middle school and high school tour groups all engage with the galleries' programming through its provocative exhibitions and timely events. 

Special Events programming including artist lectures and talks, curator-lead talks and tours, panel discussions, Performance Art events, poetry and prose reading-based events, video and visual presentations, are all a regular part of both galleries' event planning that supplement the exhibit programming and engage both the on-campus and outside community. Faculty- and departmentally-lead events not only are geared directly to student coursework, but are also widely promoted and open to the public. The galleries and Kellogg Sculpture Garden Courtyard are also often requested and utilized for campus-wide social events such as Homecoming Alumni Mixers, Faculty Group Advisement Lunches, IGE's "Annual Evening at the Gallery",  Convocation Week Breakfasts and Meetings, Commencement Family Weekend, and more.

Visitors come from all areas and regions including Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and of course, the Inland Empire. Both galleries engage with the larger arts, gallery and museum industry through partnerships and participation with local, industry-wide arts organizations promoting the visual arts such as the Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825, the annual LA Art Show, Artillery, Carla, ArtScene, Visual Art Source and Fabrik. In order to allow for the utmost in community engagement, attendance and participation, admission to both the Kellogg and Huntley Galleries is free. 

Visitor attendance varies from show to show and event to event, but on average, attendance consists of 1000-1600 visitors per exhibition at the Kellogg Gallery, and 300-800 visitors at the Huntley Gallery. This results in serving as many as 8,000-10,000 visitors per year.
