Galleries

Blue Connection is Millikin University’s retail art gallery located in the Madden Arts Center in Downtown Decatur. Focused on arts and specialty businesses, the retail location is used by students in Millikin's Arts & Entrepreneurship Program to grow

The "Art of Entrepreneurship" program (of which the Blue Connection Gallery is an integral part) has been developed to unite the strengths of two of Millikin's Professional Schools: the Tabor School of Business and the College of Fine Arts. This novel combination of two programs enables business students to gain insight into the creative aspects of entrepreneurship while art students of Millikin’s College of Fine Arts learn the importance of marketing their own artwork. You will find all types of art displayed at The Blue Connection. Be sure to stop in and browse -- who knows... a promising student’s work purchased today could turn out to be a valuable masterpiece tomorrow! The gallery participates in the “First Friday” art walks by hosting receptions that trademark the arts community in Decatur’s quaint and historic downtown.
