Visual Arts at the John Waldron Arts Center
Our mission is to build bridges between different arts and backgrounds and to create an opportunity to expose local communities to impactful art. Additionally, the gallery provides a vibrant venue in the heart of downtown Bloomington for local and regional artists from all stages of their careers to exhibit.
From community, for the community.
We seek art to elevate the public’s visual and intellectual experience in all mediums and styles. We facilitate opportunities to bring artists closer to audiences by providing art shows, talks, films, and other programming. Our venue is open to everyone through the galleries and studio programs, emphasizing art made in the community for the community. We are here to become a house for all artists, encouraging them to advance their practices and develop a stronger connection with society. We work with artists, photographers, indie filmmakers, poets, musicians, and writers to facilitate a welcoming space to exchange art and creative ideas.
