South Shore Arts

South Shore Arts has been improving the quality of life along the South Shore for over 80 years. It all started in the hat department of Minas Department Store in downtown Hammond, Indiana with an annual exhibit of regional artists, known today as the Salon Show.

Located in the Center for Visual and Preforming Arts, in Munster, Indiana, South Shore Arts has two branch locations, Substation No. 9, an inner-city art center in downtown Hammond, and at the Artful Garden in Crown Point.

More than 20 exhibitions fill South Shore Arts Galleries throughout the region each year, showcasing regional national and international artists and cultures. Along with exhibitions, a variety of classes for all ages are offered at all three locations.   

Receptions vary from location and exhibit. For more information about exhibits and classes or to learn how to submit for an exhibit visit our website or call 219-836-1839.
