The Marxhausen Gallery of Art in Jesse Hall on Concordia’s campus features a variety of art exhibitions throughout each academic year. The 2018 schedule kicked off on Aug. 20, featuring the original artwork of author-illustrator Jan Brett.

The Marxhausen Gallery of Art at Concordia announced its art exhibition schedule for the 2018-19 academic year. The gallery hosts a number of regional and nationally acclaimed art exhibitions, as well as faculty and student shows. 

“This year the Marxhausen Gallery of Art is pleased to offer a number of dynamic exhibitions for a wide range of audiences,” said Professor of Art James Bockelman. “The first exhibition, The World of Jan Brett, is presented in conjunction with the Plum Creek Children’s Literacy Festival. Brett’s animated artwork is like a childhood hideaway, a place where one can get lost in her world of illustrated stories.”

The gallery’s mission is to provide local and regional communities with opportunities to appreciate and understand the role of art and culture through its collection, exhibition programs and educational opportunities.

All exhibits are open to the public and free of charge. The Marxhausen Gallery is located in Jesse Hall and is open Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters while classes are in session. Admission is free to the public.
