The School of the Arts at IU Northwest encourages both artists and curators to propose site-specific, concept driven exhibitions. Much of our programming and exhibitions at IU Northwest is focused on contemporary work with bold points of view. We are interested in highlighting work that empowers and informs by engaging and fostering exploration and curiosity, as well as work that elevates voices and perspectives. We encourage submissions to propose risk-taking, experimental or boundary crossing work that extends the concept, scale, and/or scope of your practice.

Submissions are received on a rolling basis and reviewed by the School of the Arts Exhibitions Committee, which consists of faculty, as well as the Dean of the School of the Arts.  For more information, contact Gallery and Project Management Assistant, Cathy Feeman at or (219) 981-5627.
