Dittmar Memorial Gallery

Dittmar Memorial Gallery, established in 1972, is a student-operated gallery that enlightens and challenges the Northwestern University community with the works of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Chicago area and the Midwest. The staff at Dittmar is dedicated to developing and fostering the Northwestern community’s awareness of the changing attitudes and trends in the art world. We invite artists who work in the contemporary vein, as well as artists who offer an alternative perspective that hinges on the periphery of the art world. In essence, our goal is to provide well-deserved exposure to those outside or on the margins of the mainstream art world.

Dittmar is the site for two annual dinners in conjunction with the One Book program. Dinner at Dittmar is an open group dinner and discussion of the book, which is led by a university professor. Students, faculty, staff and public gather for these discussions.
