Crosshatch: to fill an area by creating intersecting sets of parallel lines; to create something new from distinct but interrelated approaches
Established in the Spring of 2019, the Crosshatch Galleries represent an opportunity for the University Libraries and the Department of Art & Art History to explore ways to integrate art, creativity, and exploration into the Moody and Jones Libraries in interesting and unexpected ways. The goal of the project is to provide student artists with an on-campus, professionally-managed gallery space alternative with access to the 1.1 million annual patrons of the Moody and Jones Libraries. A proposal form for the galleries is accessible at the bottom of this page. Proposals are reviewed by members of the Libraries' Exhibits Planning Team under the guidance of Eric Ames, Associate Director for Advancement, Exhibits & Community Engagement on a quarterly basis.
Crosshatch Corridor: First Floor Corridor Between Moody & Jones Libraries
The Crosshatch Corridor offers a dynamic, contemplative environment in which to encounter student works created in a variety of mediums. The Crosshatch Corridor is primarily intended as a space for student work and features a rotating quarterly exhibit schedule.
Who can exhibit in Crosshatch Corridor?
Senior Art BA, BFA, or Art Minor students may submit applications for solo shows in the Crosshatch Corridor. Junior and senior Art BA, BFA or Art Minor students may propose collaborative (multi-artist) shows as either a participant or as a curator.

Crosshatch Gallery: Jesse H. Jones Library, First Floor
The Crosshatch Gallery is envisioned as a space for Baylor faculty, alumni, and professional artists to showcase their works in an active study environment with high traffic volumes and a vibrant, energetic atmosphere.
