Notre Dame Center for Art and Culture

The former Hansel Center was originally the Children’s Dispensary, built in 1921. It later became a community service and day care center owned by the City of South Bend. Having been unoccupied for about three years, the building was selected as a potential community arts and print making center. The renovation includes a new site design, gallery spaces, studios, meeting rooms, offices, a main entry lobby, support spaces, and a print shop. The 2,160 SF print shop accommodates lithography, etching, and silk screening processes.

Part of the The Notre Dame Center for Art and Culture’s¬†goal is to provide distinctly premier educational opportunities and inspiration via the creation and appreciation of art, the study of cultures, and community engagement.
