Club Art

Art at the UW Club

Over the years, the University of Washington Club has acquired numerous paintings and photographs from artists within the university community and beyond. The Club is committed to continuing to connect to the community by opening up the Colleen Rohrbaugh Room for rotating art shows. 

The UW Club Art Committee reviews all artist submissions and is currently accepting applications. Submissions will be accepted for the Fall and Winter Quarters before May 1 of the current year and for the Spring and Summer Quarters before November 1 of the year previous to the show.  If you are interested in showing your art at the UW Club, please click here to download the UW Club Criteria and Application.  Please send all submissions to uwclub@uw.edu.   

In addition to rotating art in the Colleen Rohrbaugh Room, the Club has several permanent works of art. 

  • George Tsutakawa’s “Two and a Half Worlds” is located on the patio outside the 520 Lounge.
