The Burrison Gallery is calling for artwork submittals to be considered for future exhibitions. The Burrison Gallery is named after Maurice Burrison, W ’32, former interior designer and fine arts consultant in Penn’s Department of Facilities Planning. Mr. Burrison began mounting art displays in the Penn Faculty Club in 1978. His goal was “to raise the consciousness of people on this campus to the art around them.” In 1990 the Faculty Club Gallery was named for Mr. Burrison. In 1999, the Gallery was rededicated in its current home as part of the University Club at Penn, located in the Inn at Penn.
By providing an intimate space for artists from the University Community to showcase their work, the Burrison Gallery seeks to continue Mr. Burrison’s vision while, at the same time, enhancing the ambience and advancing the mission of the University Club at Penn.
Any Penn faculty, staff, alumna, alumnus or spouse or partner of these groups may submit work for consideration. Selected artists will be given a four- to five-week, one-person show at the gallery.
