The Collection

Behold the beauty

The Cultural Arts Gallery features works from local and student artists, as well as others across campus. Some exhibits depict the beauty experienced in the artists' world, while others were created to make you think and see your own world differently. Discover the many ways art speaks at IUPUI.

Upcoming exhibits

An example of a current piece in the arts gallery.
  • September: Lizzie Bilbrey’s new series of paintings, which will be exhibited at the Cultural Arts Gallery this September, represent portraits of oneself and one another as we navigate our self-reflection during this time. Through these works of art, the year is reviewed under a lens of self-exploration through a belief that the fate of one includes the other.
  • October: The Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, which is a part of the Institute for American Thought in the School of Liberal Arts, will be having their annual exhibit this October. Unbounded is a representation of Ray Bradbury’s creativity and vision, which extends far beyond Fahrenheit 451. Come discover the unbounded imagination of Ray Bradbury at the Cultural Arts Gallery! 
  • November: Our November exhibit, “Ranking Our Stories”, will be in collaboration with IUPUI’s Office for Veterans and Military Personnel (OVMP). 
  • December: Kyle Agnew will be exhibiting Gardens in the Attic this December at the Cultural Arts Gallery. For this body of work, Kyle investigated his childhood home, and the objects and spaces that fill it. “Documenting and arranging the décor and interrogating the meaning behind it, I ask why we place these things in our homes and what that says about us and the relationships we have with each other.” This exhibition includes intimate photographs which guide you to think about relationships, memory, and the authenticity of both.

See you at Punctuation Spire

The Campus Center features art everywhere. You’ll find photography, statues, and paintings throughout the building. One of our most iconic pieces is Punctuation Spire in the Atrium. Created in 1981 by William Crutchfield, a Herron School of Art + Design alum and Fulbright Scholar, it stands in the Atrium today as a popular meeting place for students and visitors.
