The Guggenheim Gallery was built in 1975 with a gift from Robert and Shirley Guggenheim. It sponsors an annual schedule of exhibitions by professional artists, students and community arts organizations. As part of the regular programming, it proudly hosts a variety of collaborations with area institutions including 2017 Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, 2013 California Pacific-Triennial Orange County Museum of Art, 2011 Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, Confronting Nature: Silenced Voices with Cal State Fullerton, Art and Architecture with ten So. California museums and galleries, and the 1994 Orange County Olympic Arts Festival.
Solo exhibitions by internationally known California artists such as Manuel Ocampo and Tim Hawkinson alternate with multimedia and medium specific group exhibitions organized around themes which have included urbanism, the Mexico-US Border, feminism, death and dying, sex and humor, the Vietnam war, public art and religion. Chapman students install group exhibitions each semester and are required to show their work individually in their Junior & Senior years.
Please note that the Guggenheim Gallery doesn't accept unsolicited exhibition proposals for review.
