The Basile Center for Art, Design, and Public Life offers students the unique opportunity to contribute to the cultural vitality of Indianapolis and the surrounding region.
Since 2005, the Basile Center has served as a creative think tank, connecting Herron talent with community partners. The result is a wide array of imaginative projects—from public art commissions to design concepts for products or services.
By collaborating with businesses, nonprofits, healthcare facilities, communities, and government agencies, Herron students learn how to apply creative skills and ideas to solve problems in every industry and meet the demands of a constantly shifting global landscape.
This community engagement is paired with academic curriculum, and dedicated faculty members who mentor students each step of the way.
