Rotunda Gallery

Welcome to the Rotunda Gallery!

Unfortunately, due to the construction and renovation in the Nebraska Union, the Rotunda Gallery will be closing its doors forever in its present location on Saturday, October 4, 2014 and eventually moving to Love Library. In the meantime, we are exploring the use of an exhibit wall next to the Caffina Café. The wall size is 232 inches wide X 92 inches tall and is the outside portion of the wall surrounding the new vending machine area in the Main Lounge of the Nebraska Union. Exhibits on this wall will potentially be scheduled for an entire month or on a semester basis. Please let me know if you are interested in this space and/or exhibiting in the new gallery space at Love Library. If you have questions about the construction and renovation, please contact Ryan Lahne, Associate Director of the Nebraska Union at

The Rotunda Gallery provides an out-of-the-classroom experiential learning space for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to showcase meaningful educational & cultural exhibits sponsored by UNL Departments and Recognized Student Organizations.
