*COVID-19 Update*

As a campus resource and communal space, the Northcutt Steele Gallery values the health of our community!

As of March 16, the Northcutt Steele Gallery has decided to close until further notice.

Gallery receptions and all public events have been canceled or postponed until further notice.

The Northcutt Steele Gallery is following the recommendations of MSUB, the CDC, and institutional guidelines issued from the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries, as well as our City and County Governments.


The Northcutt Steele Gallery is located on the first floor of the Liberal Arts building. Open to the public without charge, the gallery offers professional exhibitions during the school year calendar, including the juried student exhibition each spring which showcases the work of our students while allowing them an opportunity for professional experience.

The remaining shows are selected by a gallery committee comprised of Art Department faculty and students. These exhibitions feature the work of other national and international professional artists. When possible these artists are brought in to present talks about their work and experiences and to conduct workshops or demonstrations. These presentations are open to MSU Billings students and staff as well as the Billings community. Public receptions are held with these exhibits and for the visiting artists.

The gallery is supported in part by Associated Students of MSUB (ASMSUB) and by a Public Value Partnership grant from the Montana Arts Council.
