    Monroe-Brown Gallery

Western Michigan University's Richmond Center for Visual Arts is composed of three large gallery spaces.

  • Albertine Monroe Brown Gallery is for temporary exhibitions.
  • Rose Netzorg and James Wilfrid Kerr Permanent Collection Gallery is for special exhibits from the University Art Collection.
  • Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Student Art Gallery is dedicated to student and alumni work.
  • Atrium Gallery is dedicated primarily to video and sound art.

These extensive galleries allow the Frostic School of Art to showcase a year-round calendar of events exhibiting regional and national works by modern and contemporary artists.

As a venue for new and internationally recognized artists, the Richmond Center offers the opportunity for extensive interior and exterior installations as well as state-of-the-art digital, audio and video presentations and performance art. The Richmond Center is uniquely positioned along with dance, music and theatre as part of the College of Fine Arts to illuminate the community with a broad range of unprecedented exhibitions and educational experiences.
