NOTICE ABOUT THE REMAINING CSUN ART GALLERIES EXHIBITIONS FOR SPRING 2020
With the conclusion of the show GRAPHIC SUBVERSION on March 14, the CSUN Art Galleries has made the difficult decision of cancelling all events and exhibitions, including the Annual Juried Art Student Exhibition, through April 19 of the Spring 2020 semester. Our department and college are dedicated to conserving a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, faculty and community members. In consultation with CSUN leadership, we will revisit the situation the week of April 20.
