Gallery Mission

The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art at The University of Alabama presents a year-round schedule of changing exhibitions devoted to contemporary arts, including works from the Permanent Collection. The gallery provides artistic and cultural enrichment for the university and West Alabama communities and is committed to representing a diverse range of artistic practices primarily through exhibition and lectureship.

Exhibits and lectures complement degree programs and courses provided by the Department of Art and Art History expressing diversity in visual arts, design, the history of art and culture. Unique opportunities to experience the visual arts in a professional museum setting connect audiences with regional, national and international exhibitions.

The collection is both a permanent asset and a teaching tool. Now constituting one of the best institutional collections in Alabama, it also illustrates the passing currents that keep the visual arts a vital and incisive record of contemporary history.  –James R. Nelson, visual arts critic for the Birmingham News and former executive director of the Alabama School of Fine Arts

The Permanent Collection - Since 1950, the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art, supported by The University of Alabama’s College of Arts and Sciences, has collected works on paper, photography, prints, paintings, and small sculpture. The gallery regularly presents exhibitions from this Permanent Collection. Additional program funding is provided by the Farley Moody Galbraith Endowed Exhibition Fund.
