Founded in 1891, the University of La Verne is a nationally recognized private university offering its students distinctive educational programs. The Harris Art Gallery, Tall Wall Space, campus sculpture garden and university permanent collections comprise the University of La Verne Art Exhibition and Outreach Programs. It is the aim of the gallery Programs at the University of La Verne to advance artistic and cultural awareness through exhibitions, artists’ lectures, workshops, and symposia in synergy with the art and art history programs in the University’s College of Arts and Sciences.
As part of an ongoing commitment to public art, the University is commissioning a large-scale outdoor mural reflecting the cultural diversity of their institution and that of the surrounding community. The PAA’s grant will go towards partially funding that mural. The mural will be painted from March-May 2017.
