The mission of the Memorial Union Gallery is to line up a diverse schedule of art exhibits, in a variety of genres that reflect the broad and diverse interests of the OSU and greater Corvallis community.

The art featured represents an artist’s work, vision, ideas, and opinions. Some exhibits are educational, some display quality craftsmanship or artistic ability, while others may depict artistic expressions that we hope enrich and deepen the appreciation and understanding of visual arts and the human condition.


The Memorial Union Gallery, located on the Mezzanine floor of the MU, is open during the building's hours.

OSU Coronavirus: A Therapeutic Walk Around 2020/2021

Photographs by James Schupp

"In March of 2020 it became clear that the contagious coronavirus had made its way to the United States.  

As I contemplated this, I decided to create a photo project to remember, record, and document this time and place.

I began to wonder around the OSU campus.  I average about 4 to 5 days a week.  Most of the photo’s I took came from my Apple 12 phone and some with my big NIKON 610.  My determination never wavered.  Every day I’d return home and download the photos for that day.  I was hooked.  

After one year I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single minute being on campus.  They say walking is the best exercise for one’s health as it hits about every need a body could want.  Every day I walked on campus I have come across something totally new and different.  What a treat for a photographer.   I am still wandering around campus and so thankful my prints will adorn the MU Concourse.  So, if you’re up on campus and see an old dude wandering around taking pictures please do say hi."
