For Inspired and Aspiring Creative Minds

From muralists and contemporary artists to musicians and printmakers, the city of Fort Wayne is teeming with talent. Paying homage to the creative community that abounds, The Bradley features an on-site art gallery just off the lobby, curated in partnership with the Purdue University Fort Wayne (PFW) Department of Art and Design. Here, you’ll find an incredible display of revolving works from their students, alumni and faculty that span their artistic programs. Twice a year, new themed exhibitions will be displayed so guests can enjoy fresh creative perspectives during every stay. If interested in adding to your own collection, all pieces are available for purchase.

Purdue University Fort Wayne Department of Art and Design guides over 250 students towards their artistic goals each year within several degree programs ranging from Bachelor of Arts to Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. The campus’s Visual Arts Building offers studios primed for creativity of all kinds including ceramics, photography, printmaking, web design, woodworking and beyond. Plus, their own personal gallery space features eight exhibitions each year.
