Bloomington-Normal Area Art Galleries

Bloomington-Normal area is home to many art galleries located around downtown Bloomington, Heartland's campus, and ISU's campus. The art galleries add for a bit of excitement to the town with various types of artwork and even live shows on certain days of the week. The galleries are very important to Bloomington-Normal because they have always been a part of the town itself. The art galleries build social capital by getting people involved, by connecting organizations to each other and by giving participants experience in organizing and working with local businesses and independent artists as well.  Having the galleries allows people who would otherwise not come into contact with each other meet new people and it also increases the attractiveness of the town to tourists, the residents, and potential businesses.
