The Naropa University Galleries offer an experience of the arts in a contemplative environment committed to the human experience of visual, perceptual and energetic transmissions through art.

Deeply linked with Naropa University’s mission, the visual arts galleries nurture and cultivate contemplative insight to reflect the interplay of discipline and delight. We are home to five art galleries throughout the campuses that present contemporary and traditional media by students and faculty, regional, national and international artists. In addition, each spring and fall semester the Naropa University Galleries feature artwork by graduating seniors from the Visual Arts and Art Therapy programs.
