Rice Gallery is the only university museum in the United States devoted to site-specific installation art. Five times a year, Rice Gallery invites contemporary artists to create new installations on-site.
Rice Gallery funds the artist’s creative process from start to finish, and installations here can become a turning point in an artist’s career. Young artists have the opportunity to expand their processes into well-developed, large-scale works, while mid-career and established artists can “fine-tune” their ideas and methods.
Since 1995, Rice Gallery has commissioned more than forty installations. It is a nationally recognized contemporary art space enjoyed by almost 40,000 visitors annually, and it is celebrated among artists as “a great place to show.”
