The Herron Gallery
The Herron Gallery is a nonprofit visual art gallery that provides the community; local high school students; and IUPUI students, faculty, and staff with firsthand exposure to contemporary works of art created by regional, national, and international artists. The 3,200-square-foot gallery is committed to a program of eight to ten exhibits each year that explore all areas of visual artistic expression. The gallery also holds annual student, senior, and faculty exhibits. Each year’s exhibit schedule is coordinated with the school’s lecture series to provide a broader understanding of the works. In addition, workshops are conducted by visiting/exhibiting artists to give students the opportunity to work directly with recognized professionals.
