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. Located on 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.
