The Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design is celebrating its origins. 125 years ago, in 1895, the Department of Freehand and Technical Drawing was created on the Indiana University Bloomington campus – one of the oldest art departments in the nation. A few years later, in 1913, the Department of Home Economics was established. Over the decades, these units and degree programs coalesced. Following the merger of the Department of Studio Art and the Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design into the School of Art + Design in 2016, and with the addition of architecture in 2017, and a major gift from the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi in 2019, we became the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design. The exhibition includes faculty works representing a broad range of media: video and film, paintings, drawings, sculpture, architectural models, fibers, prints, photographs, collages, ceramics, and installations.
New + Next: A Faculty Show Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design coincides with Indiana University’s Bicentennial celebration and will open at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science on November 17th with a reception taking place the same day (11/17), and remain on view until January 5th. The exhibition will then travel to Bloomington, IN, opening on January 17th at the Grunwald Gallery and continuing through March 5th. An opening reception will take place at the Grunwald Gallery on January 17th from 6-8pm.
This exhibition is supported by the Office of the Bicentennial, the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science, and U Board of Trustee member Pat Shoulders and his wife Lisa. Additional support comes from the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design. The Grunwald Gallery would like to thank the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science for their collaboration on this project.
