Arts Council reopening information

Pandemic By Megan Thorne

The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana will reopen the Bower Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery on Tuesday, June 30 with a new exhibit, Unsheltered.

The Arts Council will limit the amount of people allowed in the gallery to 20 at a time. Masks are required to enter the gallery.

The gallery hours for the summer season are Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and open for appointments on Mondays.

To allow people to see the Unsheltered exhibit outside of daytime business hours, the gallery will be open noon-7 p.m. Wednesday, July 8. For those who wish to view the exhibit, but aren’t able to visit the gallery in person, the Arts Council will have a virtual exhibit on artswin.org beginning next week.

The Unsheltered exhibit features more than 80 entries made by local artists during the stay-at-home order. The eclectic mix showcases how local artists channeled the pandemic into art.

The Arts Council will be closed July 3.
