Have you ever spied a gorgeous painting in the Indiana Memorial Union and wondered where it came from? Or been captivated by a sculpture in front of a campus building? Chances are, it is one of the holdings of the Public Art and Cultural Heritage Collection.
Public Art and Cultural Heritage Collection staff stewards Indiana University's thousands of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, decorative, and other miscellaneous art objects that are housed outside of IU museums but are located on campus grounds throughout the state. Public Art and Cultural Heritage serves all nine campuses of IU, helping to make them some of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. Public Art and Cultural Heritage staff steward IU’s vast collection of paintings, photographs, sketches, sculptures, and antiques so that all visitors to IU can enjoy a rich artistic experience without ever entering a museum.
