Crowley Community Gallery exhibits local artist groups or student and faculty work.
South Bend Museum of Art reviews
Not so big, but definitely big enough to spend a good half an hour, to an hour (depending on the sort on exhibits)
The South Bend Museum of Art has been an ever evolving entity in our Community. It serves as a voice for both modern and contemporary artists as well as providing instruction for people of all ages. I love this place. A MUST see. I bring visiting friends so they can enjoy the experience.
