The Brandstater Gallery is part of the Visual Art Center at La Sierra University. The gallery was established in 1984, with a donation from the children of Roy and Frances Brandstater – Rhona, Bernard, Murray and Lynne – as a legacy to honor their parents.
The Brandstater Gallery is dedicated to the intellectual and artistic life of the university, and is committed to collaboration with other institutions and the community at large. It provides the opportunity to interact with artists and artistic projects by featuring exhibits of regional, national, and international importance. The gallery provides students and graduates of the La Sierra University art program, a professional setting to exhibit artwork and projects required to complete their education.
Brandstater Gallery Endowment
The Brandstater Endowment Fund was established at La Sierra University to provide income for activities and programs in the Art+Design Department that have a focus in the Brandstater Gallery.
