The mission of the O’Connor Art Gallery is to present the Dominican University academic community with timely, relevant and focused contemporary art exhibitions that foster critical and thoughtful dialogue across disciplines. Located in Lewis Hall, steps away from many of the art department’s studios and classrooms, the gallery is particularly accessible to art students as a space for intimate engagement and reflection. In addition to curated exhibitions, the gallery is the site of an annual juried student show and senior thesis exhibitions.

The gallery is open to the public during the academic year.

  • Monday–Friday, 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Free and all are welcome.
