The purpose of the USI Art Club is to bring awareness of the visual arts to the university and the community. Membership in the USI Art Club is open to all USI students.
In the past, membership benefits have included: meetings with other students who have an interest in art; collaborative art projects; art tours to Chicago, New York, London and other art centers to visit art museums, art galleries, special exhibitions and other cultural sites; opportunities for students to exhibit and sell their artwork; and participation in Family Weekend, Springfest, and other university-sponsored club events.
One major fundraiser each year allows the Art Club to contribute to student art awards, the art tours, visiting artists, community outreach and other planned projects.
