The Todd Art Gallery, and it's subsidiary student 210 and Glass Galleries exhibit works of art from emerging and prominent artists in conjunction with studies offered through Middle Tennessee State University's Department of Art and Design. 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 kindergarten through college undergraduates.
