What is Art @ the Y?

Art @ the Y seeks to engage the entire community in issues of social justice, international understanding, environmental activism, faith and cultural understanding through quality arts programming. It's always free and open to the public.

Upcoming Events

Art is Dialogue, Action, and Reflection

Some of the most profound insight, critique, and creative thinking around the issues which comprise the mission of the Y happen in and around the arts.

Art @ the Y is presented in our revolving exhibition space in Murphy Gallery on the first floor of the University YMCA.

Open M-TH 9-9, F 9-5, SA 12-5, SU 10-1 (Summer Hours: M-F 10-4 only)

We invite everyone to learn more about the work in person and to dialogue.
