The Hastings College Jackson Dinsdale Art Center (JDAC) features two galleries that house exhibits year-round.
See the schedule below.

The 1,100 square-foot main gallery is located off the JDAC lobby in the southwest corner of the building — it’s visible from the exterior through glass walls, acting as a beacon day and night to highlight the art showcased within. A 515 square-foot gallery is located adjacent to the lobby and offers an additional venue for a second exhibition or expansion of the main gallery or lobby space.

Exhibitions generally change monthly, allowing a wide variety of art to be on display throughout the year.

The gallery is open to the public at no cost.
