LBCC Art Galleries are either Non-Public Forum or Limited Public Forum where art is displayed by permission of the college and/or any recognized student group appointed to select and hang art. No individual, employee, student or public person has a right to post in these galleries except through the art submission processes established by each gallery and the art department or gallery sponsor. The college will generally refrain from interfering with the selection processes established by those who manage the art galleries and will refrain from judging the content or message of the artist in terms of right to post. Individuals wishing to offer art for gallery display should contact art faculty. For rules on Non-Public Forum and Limited Public Forum, see those headings in Administrative Rule 1055-01: Time, Place and Manner of Free Expression. Art galleries may display art that is controversial or only for adult viewing. Parental discretion is advised in these areas. Galleries are strongly encouraged to post signs at all entrances to notify students and the public when they are entering a gallery which may contain content not suitable for children. In addition, galleries are encouraged to be thoughtful to post mature art in locations where students and the public (including children) may opt in, rather than be forced to opt out.
Individuals or student groups wishing to post art in Open Public Forum may use the public bulletin boards and other Open Public Forum spaces to share their art so long as they comply with all rules for those spaces.
Reminder: If there is no rule, the space or method of communication is generally not permitted. Questions may be referred to the Office of Student Development.
