The Worth Ryder Art Gallery is an educational art space that has served as a cultural and artistic resource and community center for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, alumni, and the Bay Area community since 1960, and is the central social and artistic hub of the UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice.

The gallery supports students in exhibiting their artwork in a professional gallery context, serves as an exhibition platform for emerging contemporary artistic strategies, and brings challenging and thought-provoking artwork to the UC Berkeley campus. It is named after painter and founding chair of the department, Worth Ryder.

INTERNSHIPS

The Worth Ryder Art Gallery Internship program is an opportunity to learn how art exhibitions are put together, to gain experience in the day-to-day functioning of an art gallery from the inside, to work with professional curators and artists. Students typically take the internship for 2 credits. Admission is competitive. Interested students can apply here at the beginning of each semester.

The gallery also houses the Art Library Project, a non-circulating DIY arts resource space run by our librarian interns. Come and browse our collection!
