Indiana University East has renamed The Gallery in Whitewater Hall in remembrance of Tom Thomas, artist, associate professor of fine arts and founder of the Whitewater Valley Art Competition (WVAC).

He had an immense impact on his students and the campus, helping to develop the fine arts program and the WVAC, an annual art competition that attracts hundreds of artists for the unique experience of being juried by a nationally-known artist or curator who openly critiques all submitted entries before choosing the top works for the exhibit.
