Unique Opportunities

With access to one of the world’s most vibrant artistic hubs, you will be encouraged to participate in internships. Faculty advisors will work with you to connect you to their professional affiliations, helping you find opportunities suited to your aspirations.

The Pace University Art Gallery enhances the Art program, allowing you real-world opportunities to showcase your work to students, faculty, and staff, as well as the Lower Manhattan community and visitors from around the world. The Art Gallery was founded with the goal of encouraging personal exploration and critical dialogue for artists and visitors alike.
