The mission of the Beatrice M. Haggerty Art Gallery is to enhance the cultural environment of students, faculty, and staff at the University of Dallas, and to provide outreach to the larger community. It aims to achieve this goal by engaging the public with a range of visual art that stimulates and challenges, and which communicates the broad character of the aesthetic experience.
Primarily a teaching gallery, the Haggerty Gallery seeks to serve the University’s Art Department by offering exhibitions of the highest quality, offering a bridge between the learning environment and the diverse range of contemporary artistic practice. Creative thinking demands direct interaction with art that speaks through many voices.
Additionally, the Gallery has the goal of fostering interdisciplinary interaction, to further the appreciation of the rich intellectual potential of the visual world.
