Studio & Digital Arts


Liberty University Art Gallery

The Liberty University Art Gallery features 13-foot ceilings, track lighting and a professional hanging system.

Todd Smith, Department of Studio Arts and Design (SADA) chairman, said the department’s goal is to serve as “one of the cultural hubs” for the campus and community. “The gallery offers the campus, community, and region the opportunity to experience quality artwork,” he said. “I regularly hear from students, faculty, and local art enthusiasts about how much our shows mean to them.” 

Liberty has featured the work of some of the nation’s best and brightest artists, including renowned landscape painter David Heath, and even special guests familiar to Liberty, including Macel Falwell, wife of Liberty founder Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr.

The Liberty University Art Gallery opened with its inaugural exhibition in Fall 2009. A painting from that show, a landscape by David Heath, was donated to the university and became the first piece in Liberty's permanent collection. Learn more about our featured artists and collection.

The Liberty University Art Gallery is free and open to the public.


The collection is expected to grow and provide an environment for cultural and academic enrichment for the university, region, and nation. Additionally, as students from around the globe attend Liberty University and visit the gallery, the impact of the exhibits becomes international.
