HUB-Robeson Galleries value the transformative power of art and artists. Led-by and for students, we activate the arts in order to address today’s complex questions and serve local and global communities. Working to advance diversity, equity, expression, and access in all their forms, we prioritize inclusions as an essential element and core strength of our public service mission. Free for all, we work to expand access to the arts through cross-disciplinary and discovery-based processes.
A program of Student Affairs, HUB-Robeson Galleries partner with students and contemporary artists to produce gallery exhibitions, public projects, artist residencies, educational programs and cultural events. As a cultural destination within Penn State University Park and a resource for the Commonwealth, we support holistic student success through development, engagement, and leadership.
HUB-Robeson Galleries were created in 1989; the program has been in existence for 31 years and counting. Today HUB-Robeson Galleries program two physical gallery spaces, five display cases, murals, and public projects across the University. In 2019/2020 the Student Materials Award, the Student Internship Program, and the Student Advisory Council were formed to serve our students.
HUB-Robeson Galleries at Penn State are guided by an advisory council comprised of students from across a broad spectrum of the University. Each member voices a complex question of local relevance and international significance. The council will convene to discuss and vote on their questions. These questions guide HUB-Robeson Galleries staff to creatively address social and cultural needs through programming and exhibitions.
