About the Galleries
The Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries, along with the Purdue Galleries, provide a vital component to the cultural life at Purdue University and its surrounding community. The Rueff Galleries have the unique perspective of being a teaching and research space for students and faculty of the Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts at Purdue. Housed in Pao Hall on campus, the Rueff Galleries offer exhibits and special events that speak directly to its mission of serving the students and faculty, while also expressing perspectives that are national and international in scope. The Rueff Galleries are named after Patti and Rusty Rueff, who were the benefactors instrumental in providing funding necessary to establish the galleries for the Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts.
The Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries regularly show over a dozen exhibitions each semester. Our exhibition schedule for the current term is available under Current Exhibition Schedule. Past exhibition schedules can be viewed under Past Exhibitions.
