Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Winthrop University Galleries is to inform and enrich the lives of Winthrop students, faculty, and staff, as well as regional audiences, through the presentation of exhibitions and educational programs that celebrate artistic achievement. WUG promotes academic excellence and human understanding through visual art and design within the learning environment of a public comprehensive university.
Who We Are
Winthrop University Galleries functions as a collection of three distinctive galleries on campus, including the Lewandowski Student Gallery, the Rutledge Gallery, and the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery housed under the university’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. Our exhibitions and educational programming service our campus community, all Colleges, and the public by presenting current ideas that tie to broader curriculum across campus, including social issues, politics, race, gender, science, and more.
