Mission Statement

It meets its objective through co-curricular programming to generate new ways to engage and inspire audiences; by utilizing its collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and professional resources. It serves the students, faculty and staff, and alumni of Lafayette College; residents of the greater Lehigh Valley; and the broader academic and artistic communities.

The Richard A. and Rissa W. Grossman Gallery presents exhibitions and related activities that support the educational mission of Lafayette College, advance the awareness of contemporary art, and serve as a community resource. Located in the Williams Visual Arts Building with studio art classes, the Grossman Gallery exhibitions are selected to enhance the studio arts program.

Exhibitions by international, national, and regional visiting artists, faculty, students of Lafayette College, and high school students through the Community-Based Teaching program (CBT) are complemented by lectures, panel discussions, publications, and workshops.
