KOKOMO, Ind. –  Approximately 100 pieces of artwork will be available to purchase in the Indiana University Kokomo Art Gallery’s 100 for 100 Exhibition, opening Tuesday, September 25.

The works, donated by students, faculty, staff, and Gallery supporters, will be available for $100 each, according to Tara Scott, Gallery director.

“We are going to have a variety of artwork available to help us raise money to transform the Gallery entrance, making it a more visually appealing place to showcase art,” said Scott.

The exhibition, which includes paintings, photography, sculptures, multimedia, fabric art, and others, opens with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Gallery, in the IU Kokomo Library building, 2300 S. Washington St.
