The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC) was established in 1989 as the Fine Art Gallery at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.[2] The center is the university's prime exhibition location where students, professors, staff and the public can experience visual culture along with cultural and aesthetic issues. CADVC is a non-profit organization that also publishes media related to the arts.

The center includes a traveling exhibition program that features work from prominent museums such as the Andy Warhol Museum, New Museum of Contemporary Art, and the International Center of Photography. Other programs include a publication program, a k-12 educational outreach program with Baltimore City and Baltimore County, a campus education initiative, and the UMBC Sculpture Park and Outreach Program.[3]

CADVC also administers the Joseph Beuys Sculpture Park on the UMBC campus.

Gallery[edit]

The gallery consists of 4,200 square feet, and is located in the Fine Arts Building on campus. The Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery includes another gallery space that is often used for student exhibitions.
