The Arthur Ross Gallery is a one- room gallery (kunsthalle) located in the Ann and Jerome Fisher Fine Arts Library at the University of Pennsylvania. The building is of national importance, designed by Frank Furness in a late-Victorian Romanesque style in red sandstone and completed in 1891. Established in 1983, the Arthur Ross Gallery is one of three arts and artifacts-focused exhibition centers/ museums on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, a distinction it shares with the Institute of Contemporary Art and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Despite its more modest facility and program (four exhibitions per year, lectures and educational outreach), the Arthur Ross Gallery sustains a much broader focus: it embraces an eclectic program of changing exhibitions in all fields of the visual arts and cultural artifacts from around the globe.
