NEW HARMONY, Ind. (WEHT) — The University of Southern Indiana’s Historic New Harmony is inviting the public to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the construction of the Atheneum Visitors Center in New Harmony, from Thursday, through Saturday.

Completed in 1979, the Atheneum is an internationally-celebrated and award-winning example of modern architecture.

The building was designed so that visitors can take a specific path through the building and then emerge into New Harmony itself.

Charitable gifts and funds raised from the events will be used for renovations and upgrades to the Atheneum to ensure it remains a vibrant part of New Harmony’s landscape for many more years to come.

Tickets are currently on sale for a black-and-white themed reception, gala dinner, auction and after-party at USI.
