The Block Museum has 5,600 square feet of display space, divided into three galleries, which provide opportunities for museum visitors to experience the varied exhibitions that spring from the Block’s commitment to presenting art across time, place, and medium. The museum’s atrium and reception areas are spaces for students to socialize and study, as well as to come together with the wider public for a range of programs, performances, and other events.
