Steppling Art Gallery
Located at the west end of the Carrillo Quad, Steppling Gallery functions as a major cultural center for the campus. Gallery and other humanities enrichment programming includes five or six visual arts exhibits by regional and international artists per year, a variety of music concerts, and other performances. The gallery also serves as a gathering place for receptions and conferences. John Steppling, for whom the gallery is named, was a collector of fine art and the long-time editor of the Calexico Chronicle newspaper. Steppling was instrumental in securing the establishment of a university in the Imperial Valley.
