The Art Walking Tours at Benedictine University

 

Art represents the relationship between people and place.

The Benedictine University Art Collection is eclectic and known for its range of artistic style and media. This collection enlivens our public spaces, enables the community to view art up close and encourages a vibrant cultural discourse within our university and throughout the local, regional and international community which is rooted in the idea of the Catholic intellectual tradition.

This four building art walking tour serves a public venue highlighting a rarely viewed, dynamic collection of artwork that was assembled through the diligent efforts of Fr. Michael E. Komechak, O.S.B.

The Benedictine University Art Walking Tours are free and open to the public during regular campus hours.
Brochures for the self-guided art walking tours at Benedictine University are located in each of the building near the main entrances.
