The Todd Art Gallery exhibits works of art from emerging and prominent artists in conjunction with studies offered through Middle Tennessee State University's Department of Art. All exhibits are free and open to the public. Exhibits are offered year-round and include open calls and competitions at no expense to students from kindergarden through college undergraduates. The Gallery supports collaborations with the Rutherford County Property Assessor's Murfree Gallery and with community artists, organinzers, and supporters of the Boro Art Crawl and the Murfreesboro Art Committee's Rotunda presentations in City Hall. 

Currently, two competitions and an annual thematic exhibit produced in conjunction with the department's Student Gallery Committee (SGC) are regularly scheduled. They include 12x12: A Juried National Exhibit of Small Scale Works of Art, Shoebox: An International Juried Sculpture Exhibit, and next year's Persuation, Politics, and Propaganda: Influence by Design.  The competitions recur once every three years with jurors of prominence in studio arts.

Often exhibit/competition and invited artists participate in receptions, lectures, and studio visits with students and the public, comprising but a small part of the many educational opportunities the MTSU Department of Art offers the campus and middle Tennessee communities.
