  • Classroom
  • Exhibition space
  • Student hangout
  • Theater
  • Meeting room
  • Performance hall

The gallery’s exhibits introduce people to the Appalachian Region. The LJAC Gallery is open to public visitors on weekdays from 8:30am to 5:00pm. The exception to this is when in use by classes, for special programs, and on Berea College Holidays.

The LJAC holds most of its educational programming and events in the Gallery, such as our series of Dinner on the Grounds. Berea College and community groups can request to use the Gallery for educational programming and meetings. Faculty are invited schedule the Gallery for special teaching sessions related to Appalachia.
