The Todd Madigan and White Box Galleries

The Todd Madigan Gallery’s mission is to bring quality art to the CSUB campus and community. Over the last 30 years, exhibitions of exceptional historical and contemporary artists have included the Weismann collection and works by such artists as Henri Matisse, James Turrell, Ed Ruscha, Nancy Rubins, Chris Burden, Gustavo Godoy, Mary Weatherford, and Amanda Ross-Ho. The gallery also organizes the Student Thesis shows and invites a visiting artist each year to work with our students to create an exhibition.

The University’s Madigan Gallery act as a beacon in the community, bringing established artists, curators and critics to campus to share and exchange ideas. The Art and Gallery Program complements the University’s larger mission by offering the CSUB student and the community an opportunity to engage in advanced, creative discourse.

In addition to the Madigan Gallery, the Department of Art operates a smaller, more casual exhibition space known as the White Box.  This versatile space is available for course-based and student-initiated exhibitions. 

Here is a list of some recent exhibitions in the Madigan Gallery:
