Gallery1 at Jackson State University is reaching beyond gallery walls.  Since 2016, we have collaborated with various partners such as Philadelphia Museum of Art, Mississippi Museum of Art, Morgan State University, Belgravia Art Gallery in London to provide you with world renowned art exhibitions while maintaining a student-centered focus.  Art exhibitions have included works of art created by legendary notables such as Nelson Mandela, Miles Davis, Gordon Parks, George Clinton, and Patrick Kelly.  With every exhibition, students are afforded with opportunities to exhibit, curate, and create marketing for the exhibition.  This provides students with platforms to build their portfolios/resumes and receive service learning. Art students are very unique, when they graduate; they need experience behind their belt to pursue their career in their field.  There is not a LSAT, MCAT, or CPA test required.  They must have exposure and experience. Gallery1 offers programming outside gallery walls by creating events and workshops such as the JSU Art Spot and JSU Art Institute.  Again, in 2016, we recognized that a summer art camp was not an option on campus, so we launched the JSU Summer Art Institute where art instruction is provided to the community and it has continued each summer.  Due to the request by students and parents, the Art Institute will continue throughout the year.  It is also a vehicle that trains students by providing skills to teach K-12 art, in addition to providing arts to our JSU community and beyond. We work with students of all disciplines and understand the importance of utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach with exhibitions.  Art exhibitions have infused business, technology, music, poetry, science, and of course history just to name a few.  We manage four galleries: Johnson Hall (Art Department Building), JSU Downtown Center, Music Department, and the College of Liberal Arts.  Our mission is simple, Exposure + Experience = Lifelong Learning!  We have something for you at JSU!

JSU Art Institute was created three years ago with the objective to provide summer art instruction on campus. This fall, the JSU Art Institute will continue instruction, as we work to provide arts related workshops throughout the year.  These are non-credit instructional workshops.  It provides the community and beyond with an opportunity to explore JSU’s Department of Art’s many art studios and gives them an opportunity to explore the world of art.
