We were not expecting much in a relatively small museum. It turned out that they really have a nice collection of regional artists as well as a traveling exhibit on the Negro Leagues in baseball. I'd recommend a visit if you're in South Bend.

This museum is housed in a contemporary building. We parked in the front. We were greeted by a charming lady who welcomed us warmly and explained the lay out. There are a number of galleries featuring everything from oils to sculpture to audio visual displays. I did not really pick up any theme or flow though there were some impressive paintings and murals. The different galleries are open with benches placed about. It was very light and airy.

There was a small but pricey gift shop, recently reopened after five years. It would have be nice if they had smaller and less expensive items such as postcards, cups and the like especially since they cater to kids.

If you happen to be in South Bend, it is worth a visit. It is located close to the Chocolate Cafe and other restaurants and museums.Admission and parking are free.

Wonderful art. A great little escape. And you can't beat the price. The museum was free except for the special exhibit which charged a minimal price.
