Niles Center Gallery

The Niles Gallery is the most public part of the Niles Center. Located off the lobby of the Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library, the Gallery provides a space for lectures and small musical events. The display cases facing the Library lobby contain changing exhibits, but are often occupied by a collection of unique dulcimers made by Niles, as well as other instruments and objects relevant to the Niles collections.

Featured in the gallery are panels made from rough-hewn doors carved by John Jacob Niles.

Events scheduling for the Niles Gallery is managed by the Little Fine Arts Library. There is configurable chair seating for 50, a grand piano, podium, projection screen and movable divider panels.
