An expansive environment for art, design, music, and creative thinking

Herron spans three buildings on the IU Indianapolis campus—a total 215,000 square feet of studios, galleries, music practice rooms, and other inspirational spaces.

Eskenazi Hall houses the majority of Herron’s art and design studios, a 240-seat auditorium, five galleries, an internationally recognized art library, a 3-D printing lab, a school-wide shop, outdoor sculpture gardens, student exhibition spaces, and a Grand Hall for public receptions and events.

Eskenazi Fine Arts Center is home to Herron’s sculpture and ceramics programs, graduate studios, classrooms, critique spaces, and a large, multipurpose fabrication space.

The Music and Arts Technology department is located in the Informatics and Communications Technology Complex. Students working in these spaces have access to practice rooms, recording studios, and the Critical Listening Environment for Audio Research (CLEAR) Laboratory: a state-of-the art facility for the recording, production, and mixing of musical projects.
