Gallery Guidelines

To protect the works of art on display, and to ensure all visitors have a pleasant experience, we ask visitors to follow these guidelines:

  • Do not bring food or beverages, including bottle water, into the gallery.
  • Backpacks, large bags, and umbrellas must be left in the lobby with the gallery attendant.


Just north of Sherman Hall.


Daytime visitors may secure a parking permit at WIU's Office of Public Safety in Mowbray Hall (across from the University Union on Murray Street). Metered parking is also available in front of Sherman Hall and in other campus lots. Unrestricted parking is available after 4:30 pm weekdays and on weekends.


Galleries and restrooms are wheelchair accessible, but assistance may be needed at the gallery entrance because the door is not automatic.

Please call ahead.
