Museum expanding hours, capacity in August

After reducing hours and capacity in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic last year, the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art is pleased to announce that it will return to a normal schedule of operations and eliminate capacity restrictions for galleries on August 24, 2021.

The museum's updated hours coincide with the start of Indiana University's fall semester and the return of students to campus. In addition to expanded building and gallery hours, the Luzetta and Del Newkirk Café and Gift Shop will reopen in the museum’s second-floor atrium.

About the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art

Since its establishment in 1941, the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art has grown from a small university teaching collection into one of the most significant university art collections in the United States. A preeminent teaching museum on the Indiana University campus, its internationally acclaimed collection, ranging from ancient gold jewelry and African and Oceanic works to paintings by modern masters such as Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock, includes more than 45,000 objects representing nearly every art-producing culture throughout history.

In 2019, the Eskenazi Museum of Art completed a $30 million renovation of its acclaimed I. M. Pei–designed building. The newly renovated museum is an enhanced teaching resource for Indiana University and southern Indiana. The museum is dedicated to engaging students, faculty, artists, scholars, alumni, and the wider public through the cultivation of new ideas and scholarship.
