Welcome Back!

We are excited to present our Fall 2020 season, with both online programs open to all and in-person exhibitions for the Tufts Community. So much has changed since we closed for the pandemic in March; it has been a demanding, exhausting, and personal time of reckoning for many, including us. To learn more about the next steps we are taking at TUAG, see our commitment to racial and cultural equity statement here.

We hope this slate of programs and projects, conceived with artists and scholars, can help us think through how we are experiencing this complexity and learn together. We welcome your thoughts and presence with us, and your patience with these evolving protocols of openness so that we may ensure safety for all. Send any questions our way to artgallery@tufts.edu.


Welcome to the Tufts University Art Galleries, located in the Aidekman Arts Center on the university’s main Medford campus and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts (SMFA at Tufts) in Boston. The Art Galleries engage with artists, scholars, and works of art to provoke conversation around today’s pressing cultural and social issues. Through exhibitions and programming focused on contemporary art, alongside broader research and collecting, we provide a pedagogical space for the Tufts community and wider publics.
