Art collection

January 22nd - May 31st

Join us for an art reception!
Thursday, March 21st
4:30-6:30 PM
Moench Hall, 1st & 2nd Floor

We have artwork by late artist, Peter Bruning, on the 1st floor of Moench Hall. His artwork spans a few decades, featuring pastel drawings and oil and acrylic paintings from the 1960s to the 2000s.
His family has put together a nice variety that includes his colorful portraits, still lifes, and landscapes. Bruning often captured everyday street scenes around Terre Haute, as well as images that documented his European trips.

On the 2nd floor of Moench, local artist James Shepard is sharing a range of his work from 1980s to present. His work similarly includes drawings and paintings, with subject matter ranging from landscapes to wild animals and celebrity portraits!
Most works are available for purchase, as well as a book of works by Peter Bruning, which the Bruning family has copies of (use same contact information below if interested in learning more!)
For more information on visiting, or purchase of works, please contact Art Curator, Christy Brinkman-Robertson,, 812.877.8452

The exhibit will remain on display from January 22nd through May 31st.
Please use visitor parking lots. If visiting other days other than the event, buildings are open for visitors M-F, 7:30 am - 6:00 pm
