The Anderson Gallery, a non-profit exhibition space on the campus of Drake University in Des Moines, was founded in 1996 to exhibit and support innovation in art and design. Part laboratory, part showcase, the Gallery’s main goal is to promote the growth and understanding of art through exhibitions, programs, and publications.
The purpose of the Anderson Gallery is to advance the educational, cultural, and social mission of Drake University by presenting art exhibitions of aesthetic and intellectual merit to the university community and the public. In form and content these exhibitions will be consistent with the educational standards of the School of Fine Arts’ Department of Art and Design. In addition, the gallery will allow students to gain experience in proper museum and gallery procedures. The gallery will also serve as a venue for annual exhibitions by art students and biennial exhibitions by faculty.
The Anderson Gallery is located within the Harmon Fine Arts Center at 1310 25th St., at the corner of Carpenter and 25th. Free public parking can be found along 25th St.
