Background
Frederick S. Wight Art Gallery Established in 1953 as the University Art Galleries for the display of fine art in UCLA's Art Building, the gallery was renamed the Frederick S. Wight Art Gallery in 1973 in honor of Frederick S. Wight (1902-1986), chairman of the art department and director of the original University Art Galleries. In 1965 the gallery moved from the Arts Building into the Dickson Art Center where it was used for student shows and traveling exhibitions. In 1995 the gallery staff moved to the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center, and the Wight Art Gallery became known as the New Wight Gallery, located on the UCLA campus in the Eli and Edyth Broad Art Center (formerly known as the Dickson Art Center.)Established in 1953 as the University Art Galleries for the display of fine art in UCLA's Art Building, the gallery was renamed the Frederick S.
