A SPECIAL NOTE TO EL CAMINO COLLEGE STUDENTS
Each exhibition at El Camino College Art Gallery is organized and presented primarily for you. El Camino College Art Gallery is your visual library and laboratory where you can see, without leaving the campus, a variety of high quality contemporary artistic expressions in varied media, that examine current and relevant topics. For students taking art classes, the artwork seen at the ECC Gallery may catalyze your own creative investigation. For those of you studying art history, the ECC Art Gallery's exhibitions allow for direct viewing of art, augmenting your classroom experience of predominantly photographic reproduction of artwork. For many ECC students, the exhibitions at the college gallery may provide your first direct encounter with art in a gallery setting. The goal of all of our exhibitions and programs is to enhance the academic experience of all visitors by igniting imaginations and encouraging critical thinking.
