About Us

MISSION

ShopColumbia at Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery serves the Columbia College Chicago community by fostering the representation and sale of professional work and talent from multiple creative fields. As an extension of the classroom, the Shop supports students by providing a professional environment to hone the process of presenting, marketing, and selling work to the public. Through community partnerships, ancillary programming and representation of alumni, faculty and staff, ShopColumbia bridges professional practice with the student learning experience. 


 

THE HISTORY

The Department of Exhibitions, Performance and Student Spaces (DEPS)  opened ShopColumbia on October 16, 2008 to provide students a commercial venue for showcasing and selling their work.  Since opening, ShopColumbia has represented over 1200 emerging student and alumni artists and facilitated over $300,000 in revenue for Shop artists. With increased demand by both artists and customers, ShopColumbia has outgrown its current location and has merged with the Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery.
