Morton J. May Foundation Gallery

The late St. Louis businessman and philanthropist, Morton D. May, once exhibited his photographs at Maryville. He later established the Morton J. May Foundation Gallery on campus, in his father’s name. Recently relocated to the first floor of the University Library, the Gallery comprises two contemporary rooms of open floor and wall space. Two regional or national artists are typically shown each semester, through exhibits that may include painting, drawing, prints, sculpture, metalwork, photography, illustration and more.

Each spring, seniors graduating with a BFA in studio art have an exhibit and in the summer months, the Gallery often features selected artwork of other talented Maryville students.
