About the Gallery
The Prichard Art Gallery is an outreach facility of the University of Idaho College of Art and Architecture. Established in 1982, the gallery is located in downtown Moscow and serves the community and the university year-round. The gallery presents a comprehensive and balanced schedule of exhibitions annually.
The gallery opened in its current location in the fall of 1986 and is the result of an extensive remodeling project. University of Idaho Associate Professor of Architecture William Bowler designed the interior space and students of the Department of Architecture carried out the renovation during the summer as a design build class. The galleries were renovated in 2005 and the Children’s Studio was renovated and expanded in 2012-2015.
The Prichard Art Gallery serves students and faculty in the College of Art and Architecture and throughout the university by providing important educational experiences. Additionally, the gallery over 17,000 visitors annually, including approximately 1,700 students from area and regional schools. Through exhibition programming, outreach, and related educational programming, the gallery is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of the university community, the Palouse, the State of Idaho, and the Northwest region.
