The Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries function as an educational resource for Wright State University and the greater Dayton metropolitan area. The galleries strive to fill educational and cultural opportunities in our region by exhibiting exceptional contemporary art in a variety of media. Through the use of public lectures, workshops, and catalogues, we communicate the concepts and methods behind the exhibited work. We underscore our outreach objectives by being free and open to the public five days a week and during events.

The galleries strive to provide our audience access to the best available contemporary art, both nationally and regionally. As a university gallery, we are able to utilize diverse intellectual and physical resources to provide quality arts education and cultural experiences to Wright State, the Dayton area, and southwest Ohio.

At the heart of all our programming is an openness to new ideas as well as being innovative, informative, and showcasing excellence. We believe there are always connections to be drawn between the arts and the world around us, and these relationships are often best identified and understood through contemporary art.
