The art galleries were established in 1983 and are owned and curated by South Bend Heritage (SBH) and the Colfax Gallery Committee, which includes local artists and art educators. The art gallery spaces include three primary areas: the Robert Seifert Gallery, the Court Gallery, and the Paper Room. Since opening, the galleries have hosted a variety of art receptions, performances, and presentations, such as Art & Social Justice, Poetry Slam, and the Middle School Exhibition, representing hundreds of local, regional, and national artists.
SBH strives to ensure that the Colfax Cultural Center Art Galleries fulfill the commitment noted below. As such, please know that the galleries may contain content which some individuals, groups or organizations may find offensive, controversial or distasteful. SBH strives to locate art in gallery space that accommodates each artist and individual exhibition. If you are a parent, it is your responsibility to ensure that the gallery content is suitable for your child to view. If you think that you or others you are responsible for may be offended by the content in the galleries, you should not access them.
SBH Colfax Cultural Center Art Gallery Commitment
Freedom of speech is the foundation of our communities and our nation. The works this organization exhibits may awe, illuminate, challenge, unsettle, confound, provoke, and, at times, offend. South Bend Heritage defends the freedom to create content and exhibit such work anywhere in the world, and we recognize the privilege of living in a country where creating, exhibiting, and experiencing such work is a constitutional right.
To exhibit a work of art is not to endorse the work or the vision, ideas, and opinions of the artist. It is to uphold the right of all to experience diverse visions and views. If and when controversies arise from the exhibition of a work of art, South Bend Heritage welcomes public discussion and debate with the belief that such discussion is integral to the experience of the art. Consistent with our fundamental commitment to freedom of speech, however, SBH will not censor exhibitions in response to political or ideological pressure.

CALL FOR ARTISTS: ART AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
A Juried Exhibition
July 14 – August 25, 2023
ITS CONTENT IS LIMITED TO CONCERNS FOR A SOCIALLY JUST WORLD.
“Art and Social Justice” was the title of a joint exhibition of work by artists Jake Webster and the late Douglas Kinsey. The theme, a socially just world, is particularly reflective of South Bend Heritage Foundation’s mission and therefore inspired this annual juried exhibition. Now in its 34th year, the annual Art and Social Justice Exhibition has become a significant and anticipated Colfax Campus Gallery event.
Eligibility – All artists residing in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio are eligible to enter. All works submitted must be original, completed in the last 3 years, and related to issues arising from the theme of the exhibition.
Media – A maximum of three pieces per artist will be accepted for jurying. All media are accepted for consideration with some physical restrictions: 3 dimensional work may be no heavier than 100 pounds. Alternative media will be considered and accommodated if possible, given the available gallery space.
Awards – There will be five equal cash awards given totaling no less than $1,250.
