Be part of Wichita's contemporary art scene.

WSU SHIFTSPACE Gallery is the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries off-campus student gallery located on Commerce Street - the heart of Wichita's vibrant gallery district. SHIFTSPACE Gallery earned its name from its early days as a "roaming" gallery. Moving from place to place, ever-changing, morphing, responding, shifting from space to space with each new exhibition. The gallery maintains this nomadic spirit in its newest incarnation with innovative exhibitions that explore the newest frontiers of contemporary art and design.

BFA Senior exhibitions and MFA Thesis shows are usually held at SHIFTSPACE Gallery. It serves as a professional incubator for student exhibitions, collaborations, and myriad real-world learning opportunities.
