The major function of the Gallery is to exhibit the widest range of creative talents from within the University. The exhibits can be either two- or three-dimensional, from art to engineering products, or computer-based interactive displays. Artifacts can be free standing, placed on pedestals (which we provide), or hung on the walls and from the unistrut ceiling structure. The space consists of a 2600-square-foot octagonal room fronted by a long glass wall, which can be opened.
The glass doors from the Connector Hall to the outside also open, providing access for large structures and allowing for open-air receptions — weather permitting. Receptions or meals may be held in conjunction with exhibits. If the Gallery is already booked for an exhibit, unaffiliated meals or receptions will not be allowed. Meals and receptions not associated with an exhibit may be booked in the Gallery no more than one month in advance, and only if the participants have a relevant connection to the interests of the Duderstadt Center.
For receptions and dinners, the room will hold thirteen 60-inch round tables, seating eight each — for total capacity of 104. There is a small catering kitchen next to the Gallery that contains a 30-inch refrigerator, two microwave ovens, a stovetop and three ovens. Arrangements for catering, rental and setup of equipment, and cleanup are made through the user's choice of caterer.
Upcoming exhibitions are announced on the Events page.
