This exhibition features art purchased over the last seven years for the UA Little Rock Permanent Collection. These new acquisitions have been made possible by support from the Windgate Charitable Foundation. The exhibition features large-scale drawings, paintings, fine art prints, contemporary crafted objects, and sculpture.

The Windgate Charitable Foundation awarded a grant to the Gallery Program at UA Little Rock in 2011. This funding has supported exhibitions, the conservation of two public sculptures on campus, the development and publication of a catalog featuring highlights of the permanent collection, and the purchase of artworks for the permanent collection. The overall collection is now comprised of over 1600 art objects and it continues to grow.

New Building!

The Windgate Center of Art and Design will open in January 2018 and this will be the new home to the Department of Art and Design at UA Little Rock. Throughout the winter/spring semester a variety of events will be scheduled to showcase the new studios, classrooms, and two galleries. The Windgate Center of Art and Design is located at the corner of 28th Street and Fairpark Blvd.
