The works of famous artists serve as inspiration for a miniature golf fundraiser at IUPUI this weekend.

Andy Warhol's soup can paintings and Picasso's bull series are featured on the course created for the Herron School of Art and Design fundraiser. "The Herron Open: Mini Golf Mega Art" takes place from 6-9 p.m. at the art school's building in Eskenazi Hall.

Nine student-faculty teams representing the school's academic programs each built a hole for the course.

"None of us have ever built a mini golf course, so we have been making up the rules as we have gone along; but as artists, we are pretty well-prepared for that," Director of Foundation Studies Reagan Furqueron said. "I gave them two rules to follow: One was that each hole had to be well-made. And the other was that (a hole) had to be playable. Then they could do whatever they wanted to from there."

The event is open to the general public. Tickets, which are still available, are $35-125 and will help fund scholarships for Herron students.
