There's a new kid on the block. The University of Notre Dame's Center for Arts and Culture at 1045 W. Washington St. will celebrate its grand opening in March 2013.
The Center for Arts and Culture joins the "museum corridor" that includes several other key history and arts organizations: The Center for History, Studebaker Museum, Indiana University Civil Rights Heritage Center, and landmarks such as the Oliver Mansion and Tippecanoe Place.
Opening events on the university's main campus to the public is a common way to interact with the community. However, by bringing world-class artists, a state-of-the-art studio, and serious collaborators into a local neighborhood, the Center for Arts and Culture will act as a bridge to resources on Notre Dame's campus for local residents. The center itself will be of particular use to neighbors of all ages from South Bend's west side -- especially the youth.
