Strategic Plan Developments

Greyhound Village apartments

UIndy’s new Greyhound Village represents not just the cutting edge of student housing, but also the new potential of Indianapolis’ Shelby Street corridor, speakers agreed Thursday at the dedication ceremony for the four-story, 486-resident campus apartment building.

The University of Indianapolis broke ground in May 2015 on a four-story apartment building, Greyhound Village, that created new housing options for up 480 students while beautifying and promoting new development along the city's increasingly vital Shelby Street corridor.

 

The joint venture between the university and longtime local developer Gene Zink features 196 furnished units with kitchens, living areas, washers and dryers, in a variety of floor plans from one to four bedrooms, each bedroom with a private bath.

 

The new structure replaces a 60-unit campus apartment complex at Shelby Street and National Avenue that dates to the 1950s, as well as an adjacent row of aging duplexes, all of which now house 175 students. Construction, overseen by general contractor CRG Residential was completed in time for students to move in for the fall 2016 semester. The total project cost is estimated at approximately $25 million.

Health Pavilion

A $30-million, 160,000-square-foot health pavilion will transform the east edge of campus at State and Hanna avenues while putting UIndy’s highly respected allied health programs—Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Kinesiology, Athletic Training, Psychological Sciences, and Social Work—under one roof, facilitating multidisciplinary teaching, learning and research. A clinic operated by a health provider working in partnership with UIndy will serve the local community, give students clinical experiences, and facilitate research, particularly on the issue of health disparities among various populations. The research conducted by faculty, students and partners will inform discussion and policy-making locally, nationally and internationally.

 

The new, four-story building will have the facilities and technological infrastructure to provide an incomparable experience for UIndy students. The UIndy Health Pavilion also will permit us to expand our high-demand undergraduate and graduate programs in the health-related disciplines, including the University’s new Master of Public Health degree program. Half of all UIndy students are enrolled in health programs, and the demand is still growing.

 

The University’s College of Health Sciences will relocate from Martin Hall, its current home, opening up space for other academic programs to innovate and expand. For example, biology, chemistry, and physics laboratories will be extended and upgraded.

 

We recently announced a partnership with Community Health Network to establish a clinical facility in the new UIndy Health Pavilion. The clinic will serve campus and network patients while creating new opportunities for education, internships and research.

Krannert Memorial Library Renovation

The University of Indianapolis is fundamentally overhauling its Krannert Memorial Library this summer to create a more versatile study and work facility for students and faculty, and a more inviting destination for the campus and surrounding neighborhood.

 

Based on extensive input from the UIndy community, as well as the latest research on the learning styles of today’s students, the building’s interior will be reconfigured for maximum flexibility, with enhanced digital connectivity and a range of room options to accommodate everything from private study to lively group discussion.

Professional Edge Center

UIndy’s Professional Edge Center, created in 2013, is developing opportunities for students to be mentored by UIndy alumni, connect to employers throughout their studies, and acquire critical social and business skills that will give them the experience, confidence and connections that are so important for success in launching a career.

 

The Center is focusing on entrepreneurship and the seven industry sectors that are important to the Central Indiana economy, and in which UIndy has strong academic programs and expertise: the arts; education and social services; financial services; science and healthcare; manufacturing and logistics; communications and law; public service and nonprofit management. 

 

Faculty, alumni, and industry contacts for each sector are creating targeted programming and career exposure experiences for students, as well as mentorships and internships, to help them develop professionally and make a seamless transition from classroom to career.

Greyhound Village apartments

UIndy’s new Greyhound Village represents not just the cutting edge of student housing, but also the new potential of Indianapolis’ Shelby Street corridor, speakers agreed Thursday at the dedication ceremony for the four-story, 486-resident campus apartment building.

The University of Indianapolis broke ground in May 2015 on a four-story apartment building, Greyhound Village, that created new housing options for up 480 students while beautifying and promoting new development along the city's increasingly vital Shelby Street corridor.

 

The joint venture between the university and longtime local developer Gene Zink features 196 furnished units with kitchens, living areas, washers and dryers, in a variety of floor plans from one to four bedrooms, each bedroom with a private bath.

 

The new structure replaces a 60-unit campus apartment complex at Shelby Street and National Avenue that dates to the 1950s, as well as an adjacent row of aging duplexes, all of which now house 175 students. Construction, overseen by general contractor CRG Residential was completed in time for students to move in for the fall 2016 semester. The total project cost is estimated at approximately $25 million.

Fifth Third Bank Sculpture Walk

Wave Form Two

Northwest of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center are two sculptures. Wave Form Two, by Gary Gresko of Oriental, North Carolina, consists of salvaged wood from docks destroyed by hurricanes. “Art for me is an exploration in both style and materials,” he says. “The journey, the surprises, the excitement comes with the unexpected.”

Adam & Eve

Lee Benson is the chair of the Depart­ment of Art and Design at Union Uni­versity in Tennessee. His ceramic work, Adam & Eve, stands between the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center and Esch Hall.

Anatomy Vessel

Anatomy Vessel is by Eric Nordgulen, chair of the Fine Arts Department and associate professor of sculpture at the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI. Eric’s work can be seen on Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis and in numerous public and private collections.

Big Red Prop Flower

Located in Esch Hall, opposite Quit Whiningstands Big Red Prop Flower, a composite of found objects altered and painted. This sculpture by Jennifer Meyer, Lansing, Illinois, was inspired by ecological and environmental concerns. The collection and assemblage of these found objects that were once discarded is her attempt “to clean up the planet.”

Caterpillar

Brian Ferriby’s painted steel sculpture, Caterpillar. Ferriby, from Berklem, Michigan, uses copper and steel mined in the Upper Peninsula. He employs techniques elemental to the region, from those of the earliest black­smiths to the ironworkers who built fac­tories, skyscrapers, and bridges. “I believe my sculpture is a continuation of these innovations,” Ferriby says.

Connected

Northeast of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center and near the Krannert Memorial Library sits Connected, a bronze and steel sculpture by Bernie Carreño. The steel portions represent individuals, countries, or groups and their tendency to be isolated. The cast bronze section is the connection that keeps these entities from floating completely apart. This is the state that keeps us from ever being disconnected from our past involvements and relationships. The bronze represents flexibility and can move closer and farther apart depending on time and situation.

Dot to Dot

Close to the west entrance of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center is artist Shawn Phillip Morin’s sculpture, Dot to Dot, made of granite, steel, and stainless steel. Morin, who received his MFA in sculpture from the University of Georgia at Athens, now heads the sculpture program at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Morin’s work has been widely exhibited and collected throughout the U.S.

Firefly

At the southeast corner of Lilly Science Hall is Lee Badger's forged and hot-worked structural steel sculpture, Firefly. Badger, from Hedgesville, West Virginia, "has a close working relationship with fire, a challenging artistic subject. Using high-tech fires from an electronic torch, and a gas jet furnace to cut and bend and I-beam into a form suggesting an opening zipper, adding forged steel flames finished with an oxide patina because rust is the way steel burns in air."

Flowers & Wallpaper

Catherine Schlebecker’s terra-cotta sculpture, Flowers & Wallpaperis across the drive near the Sease Wing of the Krannert Memorial Library building. Schlebecker is an art educator and graduate student at the University.

Freedom's Folly

Freedom’s Folly is an aluminum fabrication by artist Kenneth Ryden, depicting the contrasting definitions of the term “freedom.” Self-determination and individual expression are implied. A native of Chicago, Ryden taught and served as artist-in-residence at several Midwestern universities, including South­ern Illinois University and the University of Missouri. He is artist-in-residence and professor of art at Anderson University and lives in Yorktown, Indiana.

Modular Tower

South of the Schwitzer Student Center are two additional artworks. The stone­ware sculpture Modular Tower, by Barry Barnes, is the result of a spontane­ous approach to the ceramic surface. Each modular block is approached as an indi­vidual “canvas” investigation—a collage of textures, line, shape, pattern, color, and recognizable images. Engobes and underglazes are layered on stoneware clay and fired to cone 7 in oxidation. Barnes has a BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from Arizona State University. He owns a private studio, Beech Grove Clayworks, for working and teaching. He also teaches ceramics at Vincennes University.

Numinous Wedge

Three sculptures stand in front of the Krannert Memorial Library. Numinous Wedge is a wood and steel work by Jay Dougan, a professor and artist living in Colorado.

Precautions

Precautions is a welded steel and cast iron sculpture by Bernie Carreño (see Sol y Sombra). Precautions repre­sents the need of individuals to consider whether they or the world they live in are ready for one more child. The intent is to provoke thought and make parenting a deliberate decision, rather than an accident of passion.

Quit Whining

Macy Dorf ’s sculpture, Quit Whining, is on the second floor of Esch Hall, outside the offices of the School of Education. Dorf lives and works in Denver, Colorado. He has been repre­sented by many galleries and his work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections.

Rain

Southwest of Martin Hall is Rain by Kevin Lyles. Rain uses steel and stone to capture Lyles’s impression of a rainstorm. His work is inspired by the inherent patterns, contrasts, textures, and contradictions in nature. He combines natural properties with the elements and principles of art and design to create work that interests and challenges him. Lyles has been a professor of art at the University of Rio Grande in southwest Ohio since 1990. He has a BFA from Abilene Christian University and an MFA in sculpture from Bradley University. Lyles’s work is included in private and public collections both regionally and nationally.

 

Sol y Sombra

Near the west entrance of campus, next to the Fifth Third Bank, stands the bright yellow steel sculpture Sol y Sombra by Bernie Carreño. The sculpture was inspired by brilliant sunlight at a bullfight in Madrid, Spain. Carreño received his BFA and MFA in sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He is currently the head of the Sculpture Department at the Indianapolis Art Center. In addition to his role at the IAC, he is a working sculptor with numerous commissions and awards to his credit.

Source

Near Good Hall on the corner of Hanna and Otterbein Avenues is K. Brunett and K. Thielking's Source.

Graduate Uni­versity and a Master of Divinity degree from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. He is a professor in the Depart­ment of Art, Art History, and Design at the University of Notre Dame. His work is included in many collections, including those of Loyola, University of Chicago, and California State University-Hayward.

The Train I Ride: Observation

On the northwest corner of Smith Mall, near Martin Hall, sits Jake Webster’s The Train I Ride: Observation, a painted red oak sculpture. Webster is a sculptor, mixed media artist, and spo­ken-word performer. His work addresses his community and his environment. He uses the tradition of direct carving and applies a contemporary attitude by creat­ing art with whatever is at hand to tell his story. “I use simple tools to cut simple shapes,” he says, “to make a simple state­ment about a simple world we have made more complex.” His work is included in many private and public collections. He lives and works in Elkhart, Indiana.

Totem

Dee Schaad, a professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Indianapolis, has installed a clay sculpture, Totem, outside the ceramics class­room. His work is included in a number of public and private collections, includ­ing the University of Evansville and the Sheldon Swope Art Museum located in Terre Haute, Indiana

Totem to Aging

Totem to Aging sits in the main hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center. This steel, bronze, and iron

sculpture by Bernie Carreño represents the culmination of the change that occurs as we move from our youth through our middle years and into the “golden years.” Although the golden years have much to offer, they are also a time of physical deterioration and pain. The cast

iron and bronze parts represent bones, while the steel portions represent joints and radiated pain.

 

Universal Continuum

Universal Continuum is a metal and glass sculpture by Beverly Precious, an artist internationally known for her site-specific large-scale pieces that incorporate dichroic glass to produce a dramatic kinetic effect.
