The combined mission of the Kadema Hall Galleries is to serve teaching and learning at Sacramento State by providing a public venue for exhibitions related to all aspects of art and visual culture. The exhibitions and events address the needs of art students in all three areas of study: Studio Art, Art Education and Art History. Exhibitions may be monographic, collaborative, thematic, historical, local, international, experimental, traditional, “high” and “low.” The intended audience is Department of Art faculty, students and staff; the Sacramento State community of students, faculty and staff; and the Sacramento community at large. These inter-related communities are served through an ever-changing and dynamic series of exhibits that foster the multi-cultural and egalitarian values of the University.
The R.W. Witt Gallery in Kadema Hall books student-run exhibits that rotate each week during the academic year. These exhibits are based on applications submitted in response to the call for exhibition proposals each spring semester. Solo, group, and curated exhibitions are welcome from students and faculty. Faculty also may propose exhibitions of art by students from regional high schools and colleges.
R.W. Witt Gallery exhibitors are responsible for funding, publicizing, installing, and de-installing their shows. They also must provide gallery attendants during the hours the gallery is open to the public.
