University Galleries

The Weil Gallery, which opened in 1978, is located on campus in the Center for the Arts on the first floor, while the future Maxwell Gallery will occupy an off-campus facility located at 223 N. Chaparral St. They are traditional gallery spaces used for screenings, symposia, and exhibitions of work by TAMU-CC graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and visiting artists from the local, national, and international contexts. Exhibitions held at these venues serve the immediate TAMU-CC campus as well as the greater Corpus Christi community and beyond.

These spaces also provide an important pedagogical component of the fine arts curriculum at TAMU-CC. Qualifying MFA candidates are offered opportunities for part-time employment with the University Galleries as part of their degree program and gain valuable experience as Graduate Gallery Assistants.

Students learn best practices in exhibition installations, supervision of undergraduate staff, public relations, fundraising, and gallery maintenance. This provides TAMU-CC MFA candidates with valuable professional experience in the field of gallery practices and museum standards.

The galleries are generously supported by the Arts and Culture Commission of Corpus Christi, the Friends of the University Galleries, the Cotillion Club of Corpus Christi, and TAMU-CC. All programming in the University Galleries is free and open to the public.
