The Brauer Museum of Art is home to a nationally recognized collection of 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century American art.
It also houses the largest known collection of works by Junius R. Sloan (1827-1900), a Hudson River School painter who lived and worked in the Midwest. Other points of focus within the collection include world religious art and Midwestern regional art.
Along with displaying selections from its permanent collection, the Brauer Museum hosts a full schedule of special exhibitions and events.
The Brauer Museum of Art is open to the public this summer from noon to 5 pm every day except for Monday. Construction on the east side of campus makes access to the Center for the Arts, the campus building that houses the museum, slightly difficult. For instructions on where to park on campus and how to get to the Center for the Arts, please call the Valparaiso University Police Department at (219) 464-5430 or follow the signs that say VUCA Parking. Currently, the only public entrance to the Center for the Arts is the west entrance, seen below.
