DESCRIPTION

Opened as a satellite of South Shore Arts in 1998, this branch location serves as a cornerstone of the downtown Hammond Arts District, providing its urban audience with exhibits, classes, a printmaking studio and community outreach programs. The Substation building was a former NIPSCO Industries electrical substation and was transformed into an urban art center through financial and in-kind contributions from individuals and businesses. A Three striking murals cover the sides of Subsbation No. 9, including "The Hugging Wall" by Tom Torluemke and "Watch of Us Grow" by Geoffry Smalley, details of which are shown below.

Use of the Substation facility is an in-kind contribution of NiSource, Inc. Operating support is provided by the City of Hammond.
