At the edge of campus, beneath the first floor of the Art
Building, is a unique and hidden pocket of the university unknown
to most UC Davis students: the Basement Gallery, a space run
entirely by students for students.
The Basement Gallery is currently accepting portraits of all
types and mediums, and poems regarding “the self.” You can submit
up to three works, or you can sign up for open mic at
submit2BG@gmail.com. Submissions must be in .jpg format; videos
must be under three minutes long.
Submissions accepted until February 5th.
The opening and related performances for “Being: Portraiture &
Poetry” will be on Thursday, February 8 from 6-9 pm in The
Basement Gallery (Art Building, Room 60).
“Who Is U.S?” explores and honors the diverse identities of
artists in America. This timely exhibition opens on Inauguration
Day, Friday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Basement Gallery on the
lower level of the Art Building. The exhibition is free and
open to all.
