 Art at McIntire

In keeping with the tradition of Thomas Jefferson's model and the McIntire School of Commerce's vision of developing well-rounded students, we support the diversity of art and its interaction with commerce. The John P. and Stephanie F. Connaughton Gallery, located on the third floor of Robertson Hall, is the perfect space for showcasing art generated by McIntire and UVA students. Featured exhibits in this art gallery are on a rotating basis and contingent upon the McIntire Art and Commerce (MAC) Committee's approval. 

Current Art Exhibits

The Student Art Exhibit, located in the John P. and Stephanie F. Connaughton Gallery, features the work of UVA art students. This exhibit is managed by MAC student interns Melissa Brashear (Art Administration); Ruyin Liao (McIntire '14); Cameron Mankin (Art Administration); and Justin Schultz (McIntire '15).

Displayed on the fourth floor of Rouss Hall are charcoal drawings by local artist Suzanne Tanner Chitwood. Says Chitwood, who grew up in a rural environment in a small town, "I am inspired to draw cows and horses because of their sense of quiet power and strength. I hope to evoke the peace that the animals bring and to show their gentleness in expression."

McIntire Juried Photography Exhibit
The committee unveiled its first juried photography exhibit, which features photography by McIntire faculty, staff, and students, in August 2010. The 2013 exhibit is on display in the 200-level of Rouss & Robertson Halls. A call for 2014 submissions will begin later this spring.
