A cultural efflorescence took place in Indiana during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Popularly referred to as the states Golden Age, this period is often remembered for the numerous contributions of Hoosier authors, including Theodore Dreiser, Meredith Nicholson, James Whitcomb Riley, Booth Tarkington, and Lew Wallace. Coincident with their literary achievements, Indiana's men and women made a mark equally indelible on the visual arts.

Drawn from the IMAs rich permanent collection, this exhibition will broaden understanding of an important chapter in Indiana's history through the display of paintings and sketchbooks executed by William Merritt Chase (1849-1916), James F. Gookins (1840-1904), John Washington Love (1850- 80), the Hoosier Group, and others.
