About

Located in the state-of-art Center for the Arts on the Valparaiso University campus, the Brauer Museum of Art is home to a nationally recognized collection of 19th, 20th, and 21st century American art and international religious art. The museum's permanent collection, numbering more than 4,000 pieces, includes works by such internationally recognized artists as Frederic Edwin Church, Asher B. Durand, Childe Hassam, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Ed Paschke. The museum as well features works and exhibitions by artists of national, regional, and even local importance. The Brauer's landmark 2006 exhibition of the art of Indiana Dunes painter Frank V. Dudley, for example, endures as a definitive treatment of this legendary figure. The Brauer Museum of Art 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. As well as displaying selections from its permanent collection, the Brauer Museum hosts a full schedule of special exhibitions and events for display in its seven galleries.

The Photography of David Robert Austen: We Ended Up Australian

Dates: August 21 - December 09, 2018
10am-5pm Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday; 10am-8:30pm Wednesday; Noon-5pm Saturday & Sunday (CT)

The Bauer Museum of Art is proud to present a major exhibition of photographs by David Robert Austen - his first of this new century. While the focus of the exhibition is the Australians themselves, the theme is the Australian way - where life is often marked by great distances and isolation, by challenging weather, by soil scoured by sun and wind.

With Austen's characteristic insight and obvious affection for his adopted land, Australians of all ages reveal their identities and relationship to a landscape that defines them, claims them, and serves as a setting for the experiences of their lives. More grit than glamour, these Australians shine brightly outdoors.

Austen's images are portraits of what was seen with the eye and unabashedly felt with the heart. captured in a manner that enables us to see these Australians in the same way,

Dates: August 21 - December 09, 2018
10am-5pm Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday; 10am-8:30pm Wednesday; Noon-5pm Saturday & Sunday (CT)

The Bauer Museum of Art is delighted to present the exhibition, Krista Steinke: Good Lauck with the Sun and other works. Steinke, a 190 alumni of Valparaiso University, has enjoyed a successful art career since her graduation and for this exhibition, has brought together beautiful pieces that highlight her technical skills and sensitivity toward her subjects. 

Using a pinh9ole camera and other experimental techniques, Steinke creates photographic works that are lyrical, even elegaic in their reflections on the progress of time. She freely embraces chance effects that occur during the image-making process, seeing such effects as parts of moments that lead to the creation of finished pieces. Through her works, Steinke urges viewers to see more deeply so that they can discover the innumerable treasures, the fascinating details, that animate the natural world.
