The Lamar Dodd School of Art Galleries are dedicated to understanding and promoting contemporary art as a tool and a catalyst for education.
The Galleries consistently produce rotating exhibitions and programming that examine the cultural and social contexts around us, challenge contemporary perceptions of art making, and provide a framework for intellectual and creative inquiry.
By inviting established and emerging contemporary artists, designers, critics and curators of national and international stature from off-campus as well as within, and setting them in direct dialogue with University and local audiences, the Galleries establish immediate relevancy. The Galleries and their vision are well-aligned with the University’s commitment “to teach, to serve, and to inquire into the nature of things,” and to excellence in creative endeavors that are focused on organized programs to create, maintain, and apply new knowledge and theories, promoting a rigorous and lively creative atmosphere conducive to experimentation, innovation, scholarship and inquiry.
In addition to Galleries 101 and 307, The Orbit Galleries provide a rotating display throughout the building and UGA campus.
The LDSOA Galleries are open Monday through Friday 9 am - 5 pm. Closed weekends and university holidays.
Parking available at the Performing Arts PAC Deck, Lot E20. Free Parking after 4pm in Lots E07 and E11.
