The Anderson is VCUarts’ on-campus gallery, serving the VCU community through a dynamic and constantly evolving program of student and professional exhibitions, projects, and events.  

At the Anderson, students are recognized as artists in their own right, empowered to push their artistic practices and engage with audiences as they hone their work.


The Anderson is open during the fall and spring semesters in alignment with VCU’s academic calendar.

The gallery will be closed for Summer Break beginning May 12, 2024 and will reopen to the public on August 20, 2024.
