Art Galleries

USC Upstate is home to a number of art galleries, showcasing works from a broad spectrum of artists.

The USC Upstate Art Gallery is just getting started! You can support our exhibitions and programs by making a donation. We use these funds to maintain our space at the Chapman Cultural Center, and to compensate visiting artists and gallery personnel. Even small amounts make a difference. Thank you for supporting the arts at USC Upstate.
