Providence College Galleries [PCG] is committed entirely to museum-quality presentations of the art and artists of our time. PCG showcases contemporary art to advance Providence College’s mission to cultivate “aesthetic appreciation, and understanding of the natural world, other cultures, and diverse traditions” while promoting “the common good and service of neighbors near and far.”
PCG operates within two exhibition spaces, on a multi-platform website, across the College’s campus, and within the public sphere throughout the city of Providence. PCG’s activities include collecting and commissioning art, organizing exhibitions and public art displays, publishing texts, hosting artist residencies, presenting public programs and events, and advocating for local artists and art communities. PCG supports the educational, service, and community-oriented goals of the College by showing how and why artists are vital forces in shaping contemporary culture.
