Showcasing art from CSULB’s own, the University Student Union (USU) Art Gallery displays student and alumni art of all kinds. Opening its doors in 2013, the USU Board of Trustees (USUBOT) created the art gallery to showcase the wonderful work fostered by CSULB’s art programs. An open house style artist reception is held for artists who are selected to have their art displayed in the gallery. The event provides a great chance for the public to meet the artist, view their works and ask questions on the pieces. Any type of CSULB student or alumni artist is welcomed to apply to have their work displayed in the gallery. Interested artists must submit their application and photo sample of their pieces on BeachSync.com by searching “USU Art Gallery” once logged in. The art is then selected by a committee organized under the USUBOT.
