Jerusalem Meeting Between Pope and Patriarch
If you are an artist or know someone who is looking for a “gallery” in which to display an art collection, Neumann University can help. We will serve as a host site for emerging artists from the surrounding area to exhibit a body of artwork. This is an excellent opportunity to share your artistic talent with the University and the greater community. Art exhibits will hang in the University Library and typically run for two months. All works displayed will be in congruence with the mission of Neumann University.
To obtain a schedule of upcoming art exhibits or for more information regarding
exhibit proposals, please contact the Office of Cultural Programming via telephone at 610-558-5626, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
