Indiana University/Purdue University Indianapolis, Herron School of Art

Indianapolis, Indiana

The Herron School of Art programs are housed in six buildings near 16th and Pennsylvania Streets. These outmoded facilities are too small to accommodate enrollment and do not allow room for growth.

This project will renovate the existing law school building on the campus for use by the Herron School of Art, the Herron Art Library and the Herron Gallery.
