AN EPIC TOUR

Purdue University North Central sits upon 268 acres of meticulously landscaped and natural flora, and it is home to an eclectic collection of contemporary sculptural and two-dimensional art. The constantly evolving multi-piece Odyssey exhibit, currently in its 16th year, has been described as “extraordinary,” “provocative,” and “magical,” and it is truly a distinct feature of PNC.
Experience a guided tour of the Odyssey collection’s highlights led by Liz Bernel and its curator and visionary creator, Assistant Vice Chancellor Judy Jacobi, as they share with you rich narratives and back stories of the large scale sculptural works. You will also get to meet two of the collection’s featured artists, Richard Kiebdaj (“Chrysalis”) and Christine Perri (“Story Forest”) as they share a one-time introduction to the deep concepts behind their pieces and the work styles it demands.
Immediately following the tour will be a full luncheon, artfully prepared by the University’s Director of Food Service, Keith Peffers. Expect some walking.

Does your busy work week lead you to counting down the clock, to the minute, on Friday afternoon? If so, Jeff and Kathy Bernel have planned a party specifically with you in mind! End your busy week with food, drinks, and among good company and friends.
Unwind and relax in the Bernel’s lovely home, nestled among a beautiful wooded scenery. Take a stroll onto their backyard deck or enclosed porch and enjoy the view, or stay comfortably tucked inside their home—in either case, you will find yourself taking pleasure in the friendly atmosphere. You may even be visited by the many deer who enjoy the enchanting property, all while sipping wine or beer and enjoying the savory tastes of heavy hors d’oeuvres catered by Portofino’s.
If you are worn-out, drained, and stressed from your work load, or would simply just like a comfortable place to unwind, this is the perfect place to end your week and begin your weekend.
All food and drinks will be catered by Portofino’s.
