Lux et Veritas Paintings

Campus: IU Bloomington

Two new paintings, Lux et Veritas (Light and Truth) were dedicated during the 200th Anniversary Luncheon held on January 20, 2020. Located on the north side of Presidents Hall the paintings complement the portraits of IU’s 17 past presidents. Bonnie Sklarski, professor emerita of the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design created the paintings.

Sklarski notes that, "There are over 40 allegorical figures representing the psychological forces that still drive human yearning and conduct in our technocratic age. They are set in landscapes embodying the greatest forces of nature that tame the ego and remind us of the mystery that permeates our lives."
