Bonnie Zimmer is a lifelong artist, arts activist and resident of Rensselaer, Indiana. A Professor Emeritus of Art, she is retired from Saint Joseph’s College where she was Associate Professor of Art and Chair of the Art Department. She is a committed artist and has exhibited nationally. Nearly all of her works are created from found materials harvested from the fields, woods and roadsides near her rural home.

In the exhibition "Legacies," Bonnie Zimmer presents vessels, sculptures, and installations created through improvisation and artistic intuition from objects and materials “inherited” from her family, friends, and nature.

Museum is closed on Thanksgiving Day.
