Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center Galleries

  • 122 S. Walnut Street
  • Bloomington, IN 47404
  • (812) 330-4400

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center houses six art galleries in one historic building. The Miller Gallery and the Treasurer’s Gallery are beloved for their light. The Education Gallery has beautiful Zen-like symmetry. The Vault Gallery, created inside an actual bank vault, specializes in tiny art shows. The cozy Flashlight Gallery is a favorite with visitors to the Waldron’s busy auditorium. And the Video Gallery projects images and sound.

Once Bloomington’s City Hall, the imaginative re-use of this classic Beaux Arts space is a work of art in its own right. And with two performance spaces and a whole host of art education classes available within its walls, the Ivy Tech Waldron truly is an “arts center”.
