Art Exhibitions

Throughout their academic and creative journey, students are able to display their artwork in exhibitions on the Saint Xavier campus. Art exhibits may take place at the Visual Arts Center (VAC) in the Student Gallery or at the Warde Academic Center (WAC) in the SXU Gallery, Bishop Quarter Room or CIDAT Lounge.

Past Exhibits

SXU Gallery

Located in L-114 of the Warde Academic Center, the SXU Gallery showcases the artwork of local, regional, national and international professional artists throughout the academic year. We strive to present a variety of styles and media with six exhibits that often amplify University-wide initiatives, complement curricular programming and witness the integration of art and spirituality. Shows are accompanied by a welcoming reception and a presentation by the artist. These exhibits, open to the public as well as the University community, present a sophisticated caliber of visual expression, as well as inspiring stimuli for our students.

Senior Seminar Exhibits 2016

Every month we will feature a different video here from each of the graduating students from the class of 2016.

This month's Feature: Adewumi Adegoke aims to communicate the burning issues of his thoughts and his unspoken words through a video installation entitled, "Homo Sapiens."

Visual Art Center Student and Alumni Gallery

Located off campus within the Visual Arts Center at 10435 South Spaulding, the Visual Arts Center Gallery is dedicated to showcasing student and alumni artwork. Since the production of art is best complemented with the exhibition of that work, the VAC Gallery offers the opportunity for students to experience the rigors and joy of presenting their art to the public.

Formerly a church, the building has been converted into an art "sanctuary" of teaching studios, lecture/meeting rooms, a student/alumni Gallery and a state of the art computer lab. Parking is limited to faculty and staff. Shuttle service is provided on a regular basis during the academic semester. For more information please contact Gallery Director, Cathie Ruggie Saunders at 773-298-3087.


LUX - A Video Art Show

A main focus for this gallery's exhibit has been the mastery of animation and video storytelling. Several students involved in animation and digital drawing classes were able to have their artwork on display, sharing their design and skills with the SXU community.

This exhibit was curated by SXU students Abel Juarez and Heather Kaminsky.
