CORE Gallery

CORE (Creators Of Real Experiences) was founded by the Student Council in 2020 as a student-managed gallery at the PCA&D.

This space is available for exhibition proposals by all student groups, organizations, and individuals. Proposals are evaluated by the Director of Exhibitions based on creativity and timing. If selected, exhibitions are curated, installed, and promoted by the artist(s) who submitted their work with the support of the Exhibitions team.

Contact gallery@pcad.edu to submit a proposal.
