Mission of Gallery 249
The primary mission of Gallery 249 is to provide students, staff, and faculty the opportunity for meaningful engagement with art and design on a daily basis. In keeping with the College's dedication to fostering diversity, creativity, and personal freedom, Gallery 249 will actively cultivate an appreciation for diversity and alternative perspectives through an interdisciplinary program of exhibitions and visiting practitioners. Our programming will include visiting artists, designers and scholars whose work addresses an increasingly pluralistic society. When possible, Gallery 249 will serve as an interdisciplinary extension of the classroom through collaboration with departments across campus. Our programming will strive to connect the art and our students to diverse populations across the Dayton area.
