Art on Campus

Moreno Valley Colleges connection to and appreciation of creative expression is indelibly fixed at the front of the campus, with three colorful, hand-painted tile mosaic installations, donated by local artist Timothy L. Taylor on April 21, 1998. 

The MVC Art Gallery

The MVC Gallery is a laboratory of creative inquiry and learning for the campus and local communities. Gallery activities include exhibitions, artist workshops, lectures, and gallery talks and tours.
