Telling All Rowing Stories

IUPUI Rowing is taking art to the next level.


Starting in September of 2021 with one idea, create a sculpture out of an old racing shell. Our President, Olivia Adam, initiated the vision to create a four-sided narrative telling the story of the origin of rowing to IUPUI Rowing's. 


The Herron School of Art and Design and IUPUI Rowing has joined forces bringing together both the rowing and art communities. 


The first vision of this project, The Crew Effect, was to provide IUPUI Rowing an opportunity to work with other IUPUI communities and bring awareness for the team, but now it has become so much more than that.


The Crew Effect is visually narrating all rowing stories, not just IUPUI’s. It’ll be a story that will be passed on for generations creating an ongoing effect, a Crew Effect.
