Contribute to the Seat Campaign
Because of the vision of Louise E. Addicott, the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts at Indiana University South Bend opened the newly renovated Louise E. Addicott and Yatish J. Joshi Performance Hall in the spring of 2014. The IU South Bend Arts Foundation has developed a unique opportunity for you to contribute to this project. A gift of $500 will be recognized with the name of the donor or someone they want to honor engraved on a brass plate on the back of any of the seats in the first three rows. A gift of $275 will be recognized with a plate on a seat in the remaining eight rows. Learn more about the renovation project and how you can contribute.
