The Cook Center in Maxwell Hall is home to the Process Gallery, a dedicated exhibition space, and the Grand Hall, a multi-use event and exhibition space. Exhibitions presented in these spaces highlight new work from current IU faculty members, students, and alumni, as well as community artists.
Throughout the year, the Cook Center presents exhibitions curated by and featuring the work of faculty members, visiting artists, and community members to give our guests a glimpse into the diversity of creative expression and experimentation that define the arts scene at IU Bloomington. Several exhibitions each year feature work from Engaged Artists-in-Residence.
The Engaged Artist-in-Residence program is made possible thanks to support from IU's Women's Philanthropy Leadership Council. The Arts and Humanities Council is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
