Walsh Gallery

Since 1994, the Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall has provided visitors with the opportunity to encounter the world’s cultural heritage in an intimate, welcoming setting that promotes learning. In keeping with the mission of the University, there is an emphasis on spiritual growth through the presentation of exhibitions that promote critical thinking and cultural appreciation. Serving both the campus and surrounding communities, the gallery hosts three exhibitions annually. Admission to the gallery and all special events is free and open to the public.


Our current exhibit is Contemporary African Spirituality in Art. This exhibit speaks to what cultural practices have been mixed, juxtaposed and  collided  with  ideas,  themes, materiality and techniques that are both African and contemporary by African and African diaspora artists. Curated by Atim Annette Oton, this exhibition examines the transformation of spirituality  through seven key themes: Altars, Rituals and Prayer; Healing, Protection and Symbols; Faith and Intuition; Family, Roots, Community, Freedom and Power; Protest, Revolution, Justice and Celebration; God, Goddess and Constructing Identities; and Present, The Future and Liberation. This interdisciplinary exhibition brings together multimedia art  to present a thesis on Contemporary African Spirituality using art practices and programming to visualize these ideas.


When you arrive on campus, please ask for a guest pass at the front gate. The Gallery is located on the first floor of Walsh Library. Gate staff can direct you to the library's location depending on the campus entrance you arrive at.
