BLOOMINGTON CAMPUS OF INDIANA UNIVERSITY
The 2011 Bi-Annual College Book Art Association Conference will be held on the campus of Indiana University, located close to downtown Bloomington, Indiana, about 50 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana.
The IU Bloomington campus is a magnificent blend of traditional and modern architecture set in a landscaped environment. Walkways meander alongside streams, through woods, and along tree lined paths. We invite you to preview some of the scenes that await you by taking a virtual campus tour. (hyperlink to: www.iub.edu/tour).
IU Bloomington’s cultural offerings will surprise you with an impressive art museum, a full opera and symphony season, a non-circulating library of rare books and manuscripts and a museum of world culture….and that is just on the campus. The community of Bloomington is alive with art and music – international, classical, jazz, bluegrass, early and popular music.
Bloomington is located in the Eastern Time Zone. At the time of the conference, Bloomington will be operating on Eastern Daylight Time, the same time as New York City and the East Coast of the United States, and one hour ahead of Chicago.
Bloomington experiences four distinct seasons per year, including a hot summer and a cold winter. In the winter months of December and January Bloomington becomes as cold as it gets. Average highs are in the upper 30s, and lows in the lower 20s. Local weather information is available through the National Weather Service.
