About This Event


Bringing together miniature golf and the visual arts, the HERRON OPEN: Mini Golf, Mega Art is Herron School of Art and Design’s signature fundraising event taking place the evening of June 7, 2014 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. 

Pete and Alice Dye are serving as honorary co-chairs of the event. Pete, a legend in the field of golf course design and construction throughout the expanding world of golf, has been hailed as the father of modern golf course architecture. Alice, involved in the game of golf most of her life, is best known as a leader, a champion and an architect. Meet the couple who call Indianapolis their home at the VIP Reception from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Under the leadership of the HERRON OPEN chairs the Honorable Ezra “Zeke” and Linda Friedlander and co-chairs Cathy Springer Brown and Joyce Sommers, dozens of community volunteers will transform Eskenazi Hall into one of the most creative miniature golf courses you will ever play. The venue, complete with its multi-hole course will highlight Herron’s academic programs as the expected 300 guests “putt” through the one-of-a-kind holes, each uniquely created by Herron students and alumni. The artistic possibilities are limitless. You won’t want to miss being a part of the evening! 

Food, beverages, music and an innovation “art-meets-golf” silent auction will add to the festive atmosphere as miniature golfers and art connoisseurs travel throughout Indiana’s professional school of art and design. The evening will culminate with the announcement of awards and prizes.
