Proposal to Establish an Arts and Humanities Center at Indiana University Bloomington

Renovation of a historic building to create an Arts and Humanities Center. The center would expand access to resources for both on- and off-campus communities by co-locating faculty and offices for humanities initiatives and constructing a seminar room, lecture hall, and digital exhibit space.

Indiana University requests funding to create an Arts and Humanities Center at the main entrance of its campus. Located in historic Maxwell Hall, near the edge of downtown Bloomington, the center will provide students, scholars, and community members with access to the campus’s rich array of arts and humanities collections, archives, and activities. It will house the offices of the Arts and Humanities Council, the College Arts and Humanities Institute, and the Arts and Humanities Student Guild as well as a seminar room, a multi-use lecture hall, and exhibition resources for campus collections and archives. Co-locating key humanities offices will serve to organize and showcase the campus’s investments in humanities-based initiatives and collections. Funding to rehabilitatethe site and construct the research center will advance the campus as a cultural hub for the region and a world-class arts and humanities research institution.
