Since the reestablishment of the Gallery on campus under the guidance and supervision of Brother Robert Werle, the University has acquired almost 3,315 pieces of art which have been catalogued in twenty-six collections and two port-folio collections including oil paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, studio glass, art glass, pottery, textiles and woodwork. A general rule at the University is that all art work in public places must be original works of art and thus a visitor to campus will find art in the gardens, in classrooms, in corridors and stairwells, in the offices of the chief administrators, in conference rooms, and in the Plough Library.

Questions about specific collections and works should be directed to Rollin Kocsis at (901) 321-3243 or rkocsis@cbu.edu.
