Mature Content Policy

Purpose and Philosophy

To fulfill its objective of providing the USF artistic community with stimulating visual art experiences in the website, the Centre Gallery seeks to provide appropriate notification of mature content works.

In the development and implementation of this policy, the Centre Gallery affirms its commitment to the principles of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and academic freedom. This policy shall be consistent with the vision and mission of the University of South Florida, the laws of the State of Florida and the United States.


For this policy, mature content includes, but is not limited to, the depiction or expression of any of the following: graphic violence, explicit language, nudity, and sexual acts of any kind.

Statement of Policy

Any artist proposing a show that will feature mature content MUST include relevant information, including examples if available, in their statement of intent. Mature content by all means is permitted, but we may need to take additional steps as protocol.
