Opened in 1971, MSVU Art Gallery exists as a resource to Mount Saint Vincent, communities served by the university, artists and art publics everywhere. The gallery reflects the universityís educational mission by emphasizing the representation of women as cultural subjects and producers. Through its focus on contemporary art and internships, the art gallery has been a catalyst to many careers in visual art. Its exhibitions explore various forms of cultural production, highlighting the achievements of Nova Scotian artists and themes relevant to academic programs offered by the university.

MSVU Art Gallery promotes critical access to its exhibitions through publications, lectures and other educational programs. It also manages the MSVU art collection, much of which may be viewed in the E. Margaret Fulton Communications Centre and other campus buildings. A member of the Atlantic Provinces Art Galleries Association, the art gallery is supported by Mount Saint Vincent University and the efforts of its Advisory Committee. Exhibitions, publications and events are funded in part by a multi-year grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
