Department Events

The Department of Art sponsors numerous free public events at Sacramento State every year, ranging from exhibitions and installations in the two Kadema Hall galleries to lectures, panel discussions, workshops, and symposia at venues throughout the campus. The events are posted on the Sac State Campus Calendar of Events.

Every semester, there is full array of art exhibitions by faculty, students, and visiting artists in the Else and Witt Galleries in Kadema Hall.  All of the artistic media taught in the Art Department are represented.  Most of the shows are designed and installed by Art students. Speakers, topics, and dates of additional art and art history lectures will be included on the Art Section of the Calendar of Events.

Art faculty, staff, students, and alumni frequently give lectures or exhibit their work in this region. A list of some of these events appears below.
