Community Day Fairs

In an effort to provide additional service to the FIU community, the Graham Center has established Community Day Fairs to our schedule of activities for vendors to promote and sell their products and services.

Community Day Fairs add a mix of activities where registered students organizations fundraise or promote their events and vendors showcase their merchandise on-site to create exciting, high energy days in the Student Center.

Check out our virtual tour and view the location of the Community Day Fairs around the "pit".

Our commitment to honest business dealings strive to create an advantageous relationship with the university and vendors therefore, it is the responsibility of vendors to select the best dates for their business.

Student Art Gallery

The Graham Center Student Art Gallery, located in the Piano Lounge area, showcases artwork from students, faculty, alumni and the local community.

The GC Student Art Gallery has hosted a wide range of exhibitions, from the work of Visual Arts scholarship recipients to fundraising art auctions for local non-profit organizations and internationally recognized artists from the Caribbean and South America.

Since opening in 1996, exhibits have celebrated the work of new, as well as renowned artists.

Inspired by our first show - featuring fine artwork from students by FIU's Fine Arts Student Association (FASA) - one of our goals has been to provide unique opportunities for student artists to present their work in a professional setting and acquire first-hand experience in the management of an art gallery.

In partnership with Miami-Dade Public Schools and other organizations, the gallery has served as a platform for young children to express themselves through art. The GC Student Art Gallery is committed to continue showcasing contemporary fine art that embodies the magnificence of diverse cultural backgrounds and disciplines.
