The mission of the Exhibitions and Public Programs department of Tyler School of Art is to explore and encourage experimentation in artistic practice and interpretation. The department provides a platform for young artists for the production and presentation of their work and a forum for the larger community to examine the most recent developments in contemporary art and their relationships to broader cultural contexts.
We design Tyler Exhibitions' programming to engage an array of constituencies as participants and audience in an ongoing regional conversation about the changing roles of art, artists and art making. Our core audience is the community of young artists in the region; part of the motivation for this focus is to bring our students and pedagogical mission into conversation and relationship with that larger community, as well as to provide a sustained dialogue between the local community and art, ideas and individuals that circulate internationally.
Tyler School of Art is located at 12th and Norris Streets, just two blocks east of North Broad Street on Temple University's main campus. Temple Gallery is located on the first floor; the Stella Elkins Tyler Galleries are located on the Lower Level South.
