The first floor of the Texas building, RMCAD’s flagship structure and the most iconic space on campus, doubles as an exhibition space dedicated to our graduates. We’re proud of the artists and designers whose careers we’ve helped to influence and, ultimately, to launch, and we’re honored to show how far they have come.

Located on the second floor of the EPiC building, the Student Gallery is managed and curated by a dedicated, hands-on student committee. RMCAD students who are hand-selected to exhibit in this space throughout the year are not only afforded invaluable gallery experience, but also an excellent addition to their resumes.
