The Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University is the art gallery of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is located on the university campus on 5000 Forbes Avenue, at the border between the Oakland and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods.


The Miller Gallery supports art experimentation that expands the notions of art and culture. This provides a forum for engaged conversations about creativity and innovation. The gallery produces exhibitions, projects, events and publications with a focus on social issues. It is free and open to the public. It is one unit of the Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts, and is housed in a three-story, 8,000-square-foot (740 m2) space.[1]


The Miller Gallery was founded in 2000 by Regina Gouger Miller, who is an artist, educator, businesswoman, arts patron and alumna of Carnegie Mellon School of Art. Petra Fallaux, director of the existing Hewlett Gallery, opened the space. In 2002, Jenny Strayer was hired as director and served until 2007. Astria Suparak served as director and curator of the gallery from 2008 until 2014. In 2014, the College terminated the position of director/curator and changed the mission of the gallery.[2]
