The 2022 Harvard Staff Art Show celebrates the creative work of the Harvard University staff through an online exhibition and in-person shows across the University. The online show will open on February 1, 2022, with in-person shows following in Spring 2022.

The Harvard Staff Art Show is organized by a team of University-wide staff volunteers.

Mission Statement

In the spirit of inclusion and belonging at Harvard, and as an effort to remain connected during this unprecedented time in Harvard history, we want to establish a space where staff can share their creative endeavors with each other and with the University-wide community. We want to provide the opportunity to show our “whole selves” - the artistic, creative sides that may not otherwise be a part of our work at Harvard. In doing so, we also strive to impart a sense of beauty, inspiration, and hope for a better tomorrow on our colleagues, family, and friends. 


The 2021 Harvard Staff Art Show included over 160 staff artists from across the University in a virtual art gallery. The virtual University-wide staff show for Spring 2021 was a follow-up and expansion on the inaugural Smith Campus Center Staff Art Show of Spring 2020. 


The Harvard Staff Art Show is sponsored by Common Spaces.
