Bernstein Gallery

About the Gallery

The Woodrow Wilson School’s Bernstein Gallery presents art exhibitions to stimulate thinking about contemporary policy issues and to enable understanding the world beyond the power of words. Each year, six curated shows are presented to Princeton University students, faculty, staff and the community at large. The exhibitions are complemented by receptions and panel discussions with experts from Princeton University, the Woodrow Wilson School and outside organizations. Integrated with the School’s multidisciplinary approach, the goals of the gallery over the last 15 years have been to enhance the impact of the course curriculum and to deepen people’s commitment to the ideals of public service.
