Jones Art Gallery

The Wylie and May Louise Jones Gallery at Bakersfield College is a valuable component of the Art Department. Currently offering four exhibitions per year, the gallery is intended to present a diverse view of the visual arts for the campus community and the community at large.

The gallery is located in the Grace Van Dyke Bird Library on the college’s main campus. The gallery entrance is located just inside the foyer.
