The James Alan Rose Art Gallery

"Visual Art comes alive when on display, when given a frame, a pedestal, a light, a special space that separates it from the rest. Students benefit from seeing their work in this context."

−Steve Cook, Ceramics Teacher
The James Alan Rose Art Gallery opened on the Linda Vista Campus in 2010 and is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Rose (1953-2003), an arts enthusiast who freely mixed student artwork into his collection of works by David Hockney and Romero Britto.

The gallery serves as much more than just a display space, with its 20-foot high ceiling and rows of windows lining the top and bottom of the walls. It allows students to practice awareness, contemplation, analysis, critique and appreciation. 

Displays change monthly and include work by students, alumni, faculty and staff. Professional artists are also invited to exhibit in the space and use it as a mentoring opportunity. The gallery is open Monday through Friday during the school year from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm, holidays and school breaks excepted.
