The Northcutt Steele Gallery provides a rigorous professional exhibition schedule each academic year. The programming extends arts and cultural opportunities to all MSUB students and to the entire Billings community. Exhibiting artists are frequently invited to visit campus to interact with community members and students directly. The gallery would like to expand their ability to invite artists and host exhibitions on campus and would like to provide funding to cover associated costs. #JacketGivingDay
All gifts to the Northcutt Steele Gallery Exhibition fund will go toward exhibition costs which include shipping and handling of the art, installation of the exhibition, promotion and marketing materials, exhibition reception costs, costs associated with bringing in a visiting artist, and any programming or events associated with the exhibition.
The current funding for the gallery includes MSUB Student Activities funds which are based on enrollment and vary from year to year. In the past 5 years these funds have drastically been reduced making it a challenge to budget for future exhibition costs. To maintain the professionalism of the gallery, increasing the endowed funds would allow for stability in programming and improve our ability to bring in a greater variety of artists and exhibitions.
