| UCR ARTSblock encompasses the California Museum of Photography, Culver Center of the Arts and the Sweeney Art Gallery, and is the public arts unit of the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS). Located three miles from UCR's main campus, ARTSblock is situated on a single block in adjacent historical buildings along the pedestrian mall in downtown Riverside. Housed in two renovated department stores from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, ARTSblock's adaptive reuse enlivens the city's downtown core. |
By merging the already established photographic museum and university art gallery with the new, multi-disciplinary Culver Center, ARTSblock serves as a cultural anchor for both the University and the broader Inland Empire communities. ARTSblock organizes provocative and timely art exhibitions, performances, screenings, and other programs with the aim of invigorating the cultural life of artists and residents of Southern California, nurturing creative and critical thinking on campus and in the community, and promoting the importance of the arts for a healthy society. ARTSblock offers innovative programs that engage diverse audiences, nourish the imagination, and challenge assumptions. The extensive art, photography, and research collections of the CMP and Sweeney Art Gallery make ARTSblock an important destination for audiences as well as researchers working in a wide range of fields.
