About Meyers Gallery

The Philip M. Meyers Jr. Memorial Gallery is located in the Steger Student Life Center in the heart of the University’s Main Street.  Situated across from the recreation center and the Tangeman Student Center, we are located in the hub of student life and bring visual culture and practice to the university at large as well as to the surrounding region.  The Meyers Gallery exhibitions address two main objectives: first to expose the wider university community to the practices within DAAP; and second to present exhibitions that address the practices of other colleges within the university, generally historic or scientific in focus.  The intention is to provide the university population with access to a greater understanding of the visual presentation of complex ideas and concepts.


The Meyers Gallery is staffed by current students within the DAAP School of Art in order to provide them with a range of knowledge and understanding of exhibition techniques and practices.  This experience provides student artists, art historians, and art educators a setting in which to explore and implement the theories and concepts of their academic and studio practices into a working setting.  DAAP Galleries employees are equipped with the necessary skills to present and discuss a variety of visual materials with a diverse audience, thus enabling them to better articulate the visual communication of complex ideas and to foster a better understanding of visual communication.



Scream and Beyond

DATES: June 3rd - July 31st, 2022 in the Meyers Gallery

The DAAP Galleries are proud to present:

Scream and Beyond, a collection of prints by SAAD GHOSN

For the past two decades Saad Ghosn has been using his images as vehicles for his social views and political beliefs, and as a tool towards social change, peace and justice. Using black and white woodcut prints has allowed him to harness the direct, straight forward, and stark nature of the simplified image to convey his message.

Saad views art as a reflection of the artist in their entirety and, therefore, not only “for the sake of Art” but primarily “for the sake of the Artist”, “for the sake of the Artist’s Life” and “for the sake of Life” in general. 

Art is potent and motivating, it can inform and challenge, and it can lead the viewer into thinking and into action. In this respect Saad strongly believes in “Art as Activism” and that art is a potent tool for affecting change towards a better world.
