University of Southern Indiana


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Southern Indiana has enacted safety measures for campus and other University properties. I wanted to share how these will impact our programs and operations in New Harmony, Indiana.
All employees, other than limited personnel authorized to be on campus, are working remotely through July 5th (This is subject to change).

All special events, conferences, meetings and classes hosted by Historic New Harmony and the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art, as well as programs hosted by outside organizations at these sites, are canceled through August 14. This includes events at all property owned or leased by the University of Southern Indiana.

The Atheneum Visitors Center and the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art will re-open when the remote work order ends and USI staff are allowed to return to campus or respective New Harmony sites.

In following with the University guidance for events, the 1 p.m. daily tour and any special tours of the Historic New Harmony properties are suspended through August 14. Self-guided walking tour booklets will be for sale at the Atheneum Museum Shop when it re-opens.
The safety of the residents, visitors and staff is of the utmost importance to the University of Southern Indiana and we appreciate your understanding during this time.

Director of Community Engagement and Historic New Harmony

Exhibitions will continue; however, we will not host any receptions or special events until after August 14th. Entry to the gallery will be limited up to 10 patrons at a time.
