Support the Galleries
Bringing Indiana schoolchildren to Purdue’s Galleries is the goal of the ArtBridge initiative. It is our commitment to share the experience of viewing and appreciating original artwork with Indiana’s children and encouraging them to develop a lifelong love of art. With your support, we can continue to develop the ArtBridge initiative to its fullest potential of contributing to Purdue’s vision of preeminence.
“I feel so fortunate to have partnering opportunities with the Purdue University Galleries department. Their willingness to network with the community is generously extended in offering free shuttle services to bring students from their schools directly to the galleries, loaning artwork to schools for study and display, providing assemblies in schools to show and tell about artwork and in offering professional workshops for educators. All of this is given as a service to our community and those nearby, free of charge. Everyone knows of cuts in funding for arts education as a common policy for schools tightening their budgets. In order for educators to meet the state standards, we must relish such enrichment. The staff of the Galleries department is friendly, knowledgeable and accessible! Bravo!”
— Sue Perry, Mayflower Mill Elementary School art teacher and 2003 recipient of the Golden Apple Award
