The Galleries at CSU are located in the historic Cowell and Hubbard building in the heart of the University’s new Arts Campus at PlayhouseSquare. From 1920 to 1981, the site was the flagship location of Cowell and Hubbard, Cleveland’s oldest jewelry store, hailed as one of the finest jewelry stores west of New York City.

The renovated venue features three distinct exhibition spaces (North, Center and South Galleries), a multi-purpose media space, a resource library, and a meeting area, as well as state-of-the-art lighting, surround sound and new-media capabilities.
