Open House Events

Herron will waive the $60 IUPUI online application fee for attendees to the 2014 Grad Open House. (You will still have to pay the $10 fee to Slideroom as this fee goes directly to Slideroom and not to Herron or IUPUI.)

Afternoon Info Session
Eskenazi Hall
735 W. New York St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202

Brief presentations will inform you about the online application process, financial awards, curriculum requirements, fellowships and graduate appointments (GA's). Take the opportunity to ask questions, tour the studios, and meet faculty and current Herron graduate students.

* A shuttle will be available to take visitors to and from Eskenazi Fine Arts Center (1410 Indiana Ave.) for tours of the Sculpture and Ceramics facilities and some of the graduate studio spaces.

Evening Reception (optional)
Gallery 924 at the Arts Council of Indianapolis
924 N. Pennsylvania St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202

Socialize with current Herron graduate students, faculty, and prospective applicants to Herron's graduate programs at a casual reception where you can learn more about the role that Herron plays in the arts community in Indianapolis. See this role played out in the exhibition Tiny III, the third annual group show featuring over 200 small pieces of original artwork in all media and styles no larger than 6" x 6" x 6". Herron faculty, students, and alumni will help comprise the list of artists participating in this group exhibition. From Gallery 924, explore downtown Indianapolis arts venues during the IDADA First Friday Art Tour.

Gallery 924 at the Arts Council provides a mix of programming highlighting central Indiana contemporary artists including solo and curated group shows.
