The fine arts program connects student learning and community outreach through exhibitions at the Ronald Barr Gallery. The gallery creates a positive image for our campus, and attracts a diverse group of individuals, including professional artists, students from local primary and secondary schools, IU Southeast students and faculty, and the general public. It is a teaching facility.
The gallery schedule provides a range of professional exhibits from non-western art works to contemporary, cutting-edge media. Many of these exhibitions have received critical attention in local publications. The gallery displays six, four-week exhibitions during the academic year and provides lectures to students and the community from visiting artists working in a variety of visual art media and styles.
In addition, the gallery is a showcase for student work. Students experience the installation of their own graduating senior (BA and BFA) and juried exhibitions. These exhibitions provide an opportunity for students to see their work in a professional context. The gallery also provides art history students the opportunity to curate and install exhibitions relevant to topics covered in their art history classes.
The Barr Gallery is a modern, 1000 square foot facility with full track lighting for walls and floor space. Features also include a hard wood floor and eleven-foot, high-weight capacity walls.
