Galleries


The Tufts University Galleries showcase emerging and established artists through cutting-edge exhibitions and programs. Located in Medford and in Boston, the Galleries function as a meeting space for critical inquiry, artistic practice, and relevant discourse from across the art world.

At SMFA, Gallery staff work to connect the campus community with contemporary artists through exhibitions, residencies, installations, talks, and workshops. The Gallery also organizes shows of student artwork, offering opportunities for students to learn and and apply curatorial skills to their studio practice.

The Barbara and Steven Grossman Gallery presents invitational exhibitions featuring international artists, and showcases student, alumni, and faculty work.

In presenting thematically relevant shows, the Gallery acts as an interpretive space that complements the curricular work occurring in the studios and the classrooms. 

The Mission Hill Gallery allows SMFA students to curate and execute their own shows in a flexible space.

These shows are primarily student-driven and may feature independent projects, group curatorial concepts, and site-responsive installations.

The Tufts University Art Gallery animates the intellectual and artistic life of the University through exhibitions and programs that explore new, global perspectives on art and on art discourse.

The Gallery collaborates with faculty to integrate the University’s exhibitions and permanent art collection into academic life.
