New ASU art gallery to open in center of campus


October 22, 2003

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Herberger College School of Art will launch its fourth student gallery in the center of ASU’s Tempe campus on Nov. 10. A free public reception from 7-9 p.m., will celebrate the opening of Gallery 100.

Gallery 100 is situated on the ground floor of the Engineering Center A wing (ECA100) opposite the ASU Bookstore. It will showcase work created by graduating seniors in the School of Art. The gallery also will feature a piano formerly owned by the Herberger College’s namesake and benefactor, Katherine (Kax) Herberger. Students will be welcome to play the piano during gallery hours, as they used to do in the former Memorial Union art gallery.

Gallery 100’s inaugural senior exhibition will run Nov. 10-21 and feature work by students graduating from the various programs within the school, including fibers, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, digital art, intermedia, metals, drawing, painting and photography. In Spring 2004, six exhibitions are planned, each featuring the work of graduating seniors working in a particular media. Gallery hours have not yet been finalized.

For more information about the opening event or Gallery 100, members of the public should call 480-965-9631.

The School of Art is part of The Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts at Arizona State University. The college educates more than 2,500 students annually and encompasses the School of Art, the School of Music, the Department of Theatre and the Department of Dance, as well as the research-based Institute for Studies in the Arts and the ASU Art Museum.
