issues, multicultural and interfaith dialogue, and the urban Jesuit
university’s commitment to social justice.
Along with its exhibition calendar, the Thacher Gallery at USF presents free public programs, including artist lectures and panels, craft seminars, gallery publications, guided tours, outreach and class shows, and cross disciplinary discussions on campus and in the community.
