The Spring 2016 Issue of Canvas Creative Arts Magazine is Now Available!

Overview of Canvas

Canvas Creative Arts Magazine is a Bloomington, Indiana based publication that accepts the best visual and written work from undergraduate and graduate students at Indiana University. In addition to the thousands of copies we distribute each semester, Canvas also runs the IMU Gallery located in the Indiana Memorial Union and puts on various creative arts related programs and events. Canvas is directed by Peter Upton.

The first issue of Canvas Magazine was published in 1996. It began as a short, black and white newsprint release that was sent out with the Indiana Daily Student, IU’s newspaper. Canvas gradually evolved into a more elaborate, more substantive magazine featuring both art and written work. In the spring of 2007, Canvas became its own Union Board committee and was directed by Alfonso Lerma. Today, Canvas is a full-color, perfect bound, 80-100 page magazine accompanied by a highly anticipated release event each semester to unveil the newest issue.
