Two buildings comprise Herron's nationally-acclaimed facilties; Eskenazi Hall and Eskenazi Fine Arts Center.

Eskenazi Hall

Eskenazi Hall is a 169,000 square-foot building that provides more than 70 art and design studios, separate graduate studios, five galleries, sculpture gardens, a comprehensive art library, a grand hall, a student lounge, conference rooms, current technology and equipment, and other amenities to enhance all of the school's academic and community outreach programs.

Eskenazi Fine Arts Center

Eskenazi Fine Arts Center, on the north edge of the IUPUI campus about a seven-minute drive from Eskenazi Hall, provides additional technology, graduate studios, and exhibition spaces, and is home to Herron's Sculpture and Ceramics programs.

Herron Galleries

Formal Herron gallery spaces consist of the Eleanor Prest Reese, Robert B. Berkshire, Dorit and Gerald Paul, Marsh, and Basile galleries. The Galleries serve Herron’s students and provide the community, local high school students, and students, faculty and staff from IUPUI with firsthand exposure to contemporary works of art created by local, regional, national, and international artists. There are additional, informal exhibition spaces throughout both Herron’s buildings.

These galleries are committed to exhibits that explore all areas of visual artistic expression. Each exhibit is accompanied by an announcement and a public opening. The yearly schedule is coordinated with the school's lecture series to provide

a broader understanding of the works presented in the galleries. In addition, visiting artists, curators, art historians, designers, and scholars conduct occasional workshops to give students and community members the opportunity to work directly with recognized professionals. The Marsh Gallery is generally reserved for student-led projects while the Basile Gallery usually displays artwork by Herron faculty and alumni. All the galleries are intended to be educational resources for students as well as the community. Interested persons can sign up to receive notices about upcoming talks, workshops, and other events such as film screenings. The galleries are open throughout the year. Gallery hours may vary. All shows are free and open to the public. Interested persons may call (317) 278-9410 for current gallery hours and an exhibition schedule, or go to the galleries website at: https://herron.iupui.edu/galleries/index.html
