The HSU Art Galleries

Humboldt State is committed to the arts. HSU's extensive Permanent Collection of art is on display throughout the university's buildings and grounds. HSU hosts two formal galleries on campus in addition to three student-run gallery spaces. The Reese Bullen Gallery is located within the Art Department and the Native American Arts Gallery is located in the first floor of the Behavioral & Social Science Building. Each gallery is dedicated to providing students with art exhibition and gallery management experience through the Museum & Gallery Practices program. 

Reese Bullen Gallery

The Reese Bullen Gallery is named in honor of a founding professor of the Art Department and has been an HSU institution since 1970. Located within the Art Building, the gallery houses the University's permanent collection of art and sponsors exhibitions of works by professional artists related to our many areas of instruction. The Reese Bullen Gallery also presents an annual exhibition of student art–the ever-popular Juried Student Exhibition.

Goudi'ni Arts Gallery   

The Goudi'ni Native American Arts Gallery, located on campus in the Behavioral & Social Science Building, highlights the work of contemporary and traditional Native American artists. Originally founded through a partnership with HSU's Center for Indian Community Development, the gallery seeks to broaden the relationship between Humboldt State University, Native communities and the broader local community through its exhibitions.

Student Access Gallery Spaces

The Student Access Galleries exists to help HSU students learn how real-world galleries function and also display the work of our talented student-artists on campus. We help students volunteers gain hands-on experience with art preparation (such as installation work) and gallery administration, and give student-artists opportunities to exhibit their work. Overall, we give students experience and skills that will help them build successful art and museum/gallery careers. We also aim to beautify the university campus by utilizing student art, which is often culturally and aesthetically relevant to the HSU community. 

We are an entirely student run program, supported primarily by student fees and student volunteers. We coordinate with the Museum and Gallery Practices Certificate program and the studio classes, but students from any department are welcome to participate. All SAG exhibitions consist of student art only

You can learn more information about SAG, like how to submit exhibition proposals or volunteer with us on the SAG website: Student Access Gallery webpage
