Transformative experiences in the arts & humanities are essential to life at IU Bloomington and inevitable for anyone who spends time on our campus. The cultural scene at IU Bloomington has something for everyone, with dozens of world-class museums, archives, and performance venues; hundreds of unique performances, film screenings, and exhibits each year; and scores of festivals and other events that bring together our community in celebration of creativity and scholarship. 

The arts & humanities remain vibrant on the Bloomington campus thanks to the expertise of our faculty, the enthusiasm of our students, and the generosity of the many friends of Indiana University.

The Arts & Humanities Council welcomes your support.

Arts and Humanities in Practice

Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
