Ebert Art Center Galleries

The MacKenzie Gallery, at the heart of Ebert Art Center, is an integral part of the Art Department. On any given day a stroll through the gallery provides new insight into the imaginations of Wooster art students. Here students have a unique opportunity to work independently and in conjunction with art faculty and a studio technician to prepare their finished projects for presentation. Spacial relationships, lighting techniques, and the technical aspects of installation are all part of the hands-on-learning. MacKenzie Gallery is in constant rotation with student classroom projects, Studio Art Senior Independent Study individual exhibitions, and the Studio Art Junior Independent Study group exhibition.

The Burton D. Morgan Gallery and the Sussel Gallery are part of The College of Wooster Art Museum (CWAM) located on the north side of the Ebert Art Center. The CWAM presents several types of exhibitions each year that include nationally and internationally recognized artists as well as a variety of student projects. Each spring the museum features the annual Studio Art Senior Independent Study group exhibition where students have the opportunity to work with the CWAM curator and preparator in presenting work selected from their one-person Senior I.S. exhibitions. CWAM also features course-embedded, student-curated projects that promote the study of visual culture, contextual research, and writing for the public.
