Due to extraordinary circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, this gallery will continue to be closed to the public to protect the health and safety of the campus community.

CORE Gallery—Creators Of Real Experiences—was founded by Student Council in 2020 as the student-managed gallery at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, created to provide the students of PCA&D opportunities to exhibit their creative work while building exhibition history and gallery management experience.
