Located on the fourth floor, the Northrop Gallery is a hidden gem that connects the east and west lobby areas of the Best Buy Theater. The sky-lit gallery echoes Northrop’s history as the original home of the Weisman Art Gallery and acts as a display space for educational exhibits curated by Northrop and other academic collaborators. Topics range from significant historical events on campus to explorations of artistic movements and key artists who have appeared on Northrop’s stage. Also a wonderful place for hosting receptions or other events, the Gallery and connected lobbies can be rented to provide an extra special setting.
Since Northrop’s renovation and reopening in 2014, this gallery has been home to a variety of exhibits. Here is a look at some of the exhibits.
