20 Minute Radius: Rowan Art Gallery

3 story brown and light stone building at 301 High Street, Glassboro, which houses the Rowan Art Gallery

One of the hidden gems around Glassboro is the Rowan Art Gallery at 301 High Street, on the edge of campus. Full of amazing classic and modern art pieces, the beautiful gallery currently features an exhibit titled “Women Defining Themselves,” curated by Andrew D. Hottle, a Rowan professor in the art department, within the College of Communication & Creative Arts. The current exhibit is commemorating the 45th anniversary of SOHO 20, a tribute to the historically significant women’s cooperative art gallery, this exhibition features works by the founding artist-members. Most of the exhibited works were first shown at SOHO 20 in the 1970s. Rowan University Art Gallery has a history of programming that recognizes the achievements of women in the visual arts.

The gallery is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon looking at these historic pieces, filled with passion and culture. My friends and I love going to see the exhibits and we try to go to the opening nights along with the meet the artist nights!
