The School of Art and Design maintains two art galleries in the Windgate Center of Art + Design (WCAD). The Brad Cushman Gallery and the Ann Maners and Alex Pappas Gallery showcase traveling, invitational, solo, and group exhibitions, and student exhibits throughout the year.
The primary gallery space, the Brad Cushman Gallery on Level 2, has just over 1,800 square feet of floor space. The Ann Maners and Alex Pappas Gallery on Level 1 has 1,000 square feet of floor space.
Each gallery features work by both emerging and established artists. In addition to temporary exhibitions, the gallery program maintains the UA Little Rock Permanent Art Collection with over 1,800 works of art in a variety of media.
The exhibit schedule and gallery talks are designed to cultivate a diverse audience and dialogue among students, faculty, and the community. The work exhibited in the galleries is incorporated into coursework and assignments, allowing UA Little Rock students the benefit of working directly with original art.
