UMBC Gallery

Photography is a versatile artistic medium and potent form of visual communication that crosses disciplines and touches every aspect of contemporary life.

The Library Gallery plays a pivotal role in the University’s intellectual and creative life. We present thoughtfully researched exhibitions and public programs drawn from UMBC’s Special Collections with particular emphasis on the history and cultural impact of photography, and we host lectures and educational programming sponsored by campus groups. In support of the University’s mission, the Library Gallery is dedicated to diversity, social responsibility, and lifelong learning in all of its activities.

Photography is a versatile artistic medium and potent form of visual communication that crosses disciplines and touches every aspect of contemporary life. Building on the strengths of UMBC’s nationally-recognized Photography Collections, the Library Gallery’s exhibitions and public programs engage audiences with the medium to promote creativity, encourage dialogue, and advance innovative ideas that support the University’s core value of inclusive excellence within local and national communities.
