Gallery Views
The Faulconer Gallery at Grinnell College opened in September 1999. Located at the heart of the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, the Gallery is part of a fine arts complex designed by internationally famous architect Cesar Pelli.

With 7,400 square feet of exhibition space, the gallery presents major changing exhibitions of significant historical and contemporary art on a rotating basis. Guest speakers, artists in residence, gallery talks and symposia enliven gallery programming. The Gallery frequently collaborates with other departments on campus in developing exhibitions and special programs.

The Print and Drawing Study Room, located on the lower level of Burling Library provides additional exhibition space.
