About the Ann Flack Boseman Gallery
The Ann Flack Boseman Gallery in the Fisher University Union offers a unique collection that features a variety of media from photography to sculpture on display year round. Exhibitions showcase work by UNCW students as well as local and regional artists.
The Boseman Gallery is scheduled by the Association for Campus Entertainment (ACE) Boseman Gallery Committee and is located on the second floor of the Fisher University Union.
The Boseman Gallery schedules 6–8 exhibitions per year, in addition to exhibiting the University Union Permanent Collection at various places in the Campus Life facilities.
The Boseman Gallery heightens awareness of both current and ongoing issues and creative processes, which encourages open dialogue and personal introspection.
Students who are interested in working directly with the ACE Boseman Gallery to gain experience in hands-on gallery management are encouraged to apply for the PIT Crew Program each semester.
