When the new Raclin Murphy Museum of Art opens on the edge of campus later this fall, it will mark the debut of the initial phase of the Notre Dame Arts Gateway — a collection of state-of-the-art buildings and spaces dedicated to the visual and performing arts and architecture at the University of Notre Dame.

Located along the north side of Angela Boulevard between Notre Dame Avenue and Joyce Drive, opposite Eddy Street Commons, the Arts Gateway consists of the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art and Charles B. Hayes Family Sculpture Park, O’Neill Hall of Music and Sacred Music, Walsh Family Hall of Architecture and DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Michael Schreffler, associate dean for the arts in the College of Arts and Letters, describes the gateway as a “two-way street linking campus to the larger community.”

“We at Notre Dame have so much to offer,” Schreffler said. “We engage with the South Bend community through exhibitions and performances, but we want to do even more through partnerships with community organizations in music and the visual and performing arts.”
