Located in the Finnish American Heritage Center, the Finlandia University Gallery is free and open to the public.
Through exhibitions of contemporary Finnish, Finnish-American and American artists, the Finlandia University Gallery promotes Finlandia University’s Mission: A Learning Community Dedicated to Academic Excellence, Spiritual Growth and Service.The gallery organizes exhibitions that encourage appreciation and understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with the original works of art and the artists who created them. Beyond advancing the arts in our region, the gallery offers educational resources for students, faculty, alumni, and the community, and provides a gathering place for people to discuss and reflect upon art. One of our goals is to become a leading exhibitor of Finnish and Finnish-American art nationwide.Art enthusiasts will enjoy the ever-changing exhibits at the Finlandia University Gallery. Each year the gallery features nine exhibits, including our annual Contemporary Finnish American Artist Series, now in its 19th year. Rotating exhibits of national and international artists are presented every six weeks. The gallery schedule also includes an annual Juried Student Art Exhibit, a Bachelor of Fine Arts Diploma Works exhibition, and a Finlandia University Faculty exhibit, which is held every other year.
