The Larson Gallery is located on the Yakima campus. Founded in 1949, the Gallery exhibits art from local, regional, and national artists in curated solo and small group exhibitions, as well as large juried competitions. The mission of the Larson Gallery is to inspire artists, students, and the community while preserving and promoting the art and artists of the region. Larson Gallery is free to students and the public.
YVC has partnered with local area organizations to host events and lectures through the annual Diversity Series. The events provide YVC the opportunity to bring diverse perspectives to everyday topics and push the boundaries of the term beyond race, gender, social class, and sexuality. The series benefits the college and the greater community by extending the concept of education beyond the classroom.
