Zuckerman Museum of Art

The Zuckerman Museum of Art (ZMA) currently consists of three galleries: The Art Gallery at Sturgis Library, The Fine Arts Gallery, and the Don Russell Clayton Gallery.  In the fall of 2013, with the opening of the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art, the total number of gallery spaces will be brought to six. 


Our exhibitions and related programs are developed in support of the University and the School of Art and Design’s mission to prepare students to enter professional careers as studio artists, graphic designers, art historians, and art educators with an awareness of global aesthetics and historical/cultural contexts. Through internships, exhibition opportunities, seminars, visiting artists, and guest lectures, our students experience traditional and contemporary works of art in our galleries. Furthermore, it is the Museum’s goal to reach a broad audience by acting as a cultural liaison for Kennesaw State University. Programs and exhibits are structured to reach a broad community of artists, educators, scholars, and the general public.

The Art Gallery at Sturgis Library

Located in the lower level of the University’s Sturgis Library, The Art Gallery can accommodate large exhibitions.  Recent exhibitions in this gallery include Juvenile-in-Justice: Photographs by Richard Ross and Engaging History: Continuities of Textile Traditions in the Andes, which was presented in conjunction with the University’s Year of Peru programming.

The Fine Arts Gallery

Located in the Joe Mack Wilson Building next to the Stillwell Theatre, The Fine Arts Gallery is ideal for solo exhibitions and can accommodate group art exhibitions that are moderate or intimate in scale.  The Fine Arts Gallery features student exhibitions and the Annual Art Faculty Exhibition.

The Clayton Gallery

The Don Russell Clayton Gallery is the largest of the ZMA’s galleries.  This space has been used to showcase highlights from the Permanent Collection and, most recently, it housed the critically acclaimed Paper Moon exhibition.


Just outside the Clayton Gallery, in the Anna Henriquez Atrium, visitors can view the ZMA’s collection of sculptures by Ruth Zuckerman.  Both the Clayton Gallery and the Atrium are located in the Bailey Performance Center.
