Sally Otto Art Gallery
The newly remodeled Sally Otto Art Gallery in the Giese Center for the Performing Arts is our contemporary space for exhibiting new work by regional and national artists. The primary goal of the gallery is one of exposure and awareness – on both the part of the artists and the Mount Union audience, which includes the community at large. Artists have the opportunity to unveil new work to the public - be it drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, computerized or installation projects - in the modernized Otto gallery, which is fitted with a 42” computer monitor.
An awareness of trends and techniques in the visual arts is part and parcel of the Art Department at Mount Union and by extension, our galleries. This awareness is certainly visual but extends to the art’s content, that is, what it means to the viewer and society. The mission of the Otto gallery is essentially about furthering awareness: to educate, edify, and involve all of our audiences by presenting exhibitions and related programs that promote the understanding of art and its relationship to society. The Sally Otto Art Gallery serves as an academic laboratory, then, for the study, contemplation, and critical analysis of works of art and their context. Annually, the gallery accommodates 6 exhibits including the Faculty Exhibit and the Senior Culminating Experience exhibit.
