Kittredge Gallery

Through gallery exhibitions and artist lectures focused on expanding students exposure to core issues in contemporary art, Kittredge Gallery serves as a teaching tool for the Puget Sound Art Department and supports the liberal arts curriculum of the university as a whole. With its history of strong exhibitions by regional and nationally recognized artists, Kittredge Gallery also contributes to the broader cultural community of the Pacific Northwest.

Housed in Kittredge Hall near the northeast edge of campus, the gallery is comprised of two exhibition spaces, the Large and Small Galleries. Shows rotate monthly from September through May. Gallery exhibitions and artist lectures are free and open to the public. Kittredge Gallery is wheelchair accessible.
