Birke Art Gallery Birke Art Gallery

One John Marshall Drive | Huntington, WV 25755 |

304.696.2296


Location:

Downtown/Campus

The Birke Art Gallery on Marshall University’s Huntington campus has been named one of “West Virginia’s 10 Contemporary Art Galleries You Should Visit,” by global art, food, culture and travel website The Culture Trip. London-based author Vincent Wood said it was the gallery’s public display of student art that piqued his interest and solidified the Birke’s spot on the list he compiled. Jessica Long, director of the Birke Art Gallery, said the Birke promotes students’ work and professional development. Long said the extra space provided by the Visual Arts Center (opening this summer) will give the School of Art and Design a more visible presence in the community, while allowing a greater variety of work from artists of all disciplines to be shown at the Birke Art Gallery. Long said visiting Marshall University’s galleries stands to create a tighter relationship among area artists while also promoting a more closely-knit community.
