Each year we host events to introduce you to the Treasures of Indiana University. These change each year, but some of our favorite past events are listed below, often with links for those who wish to explore on their own.
Tour: Benton Murals
A series of murals painted by the mid-twentieth century Realist painter Thomas Hart Benton may be the most significant artwork on the Bloomington campus. Their story is not just about aesthetics, but also about the interaction of public art with political debate.
Tour IU Bloomington and learn some of the interesting tidbits about our campus.
