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.

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.
