Artwork created by 140 Hoosier artists will be featured during the 95th annual Hoosier Salon exhibition.
The annual competition is Indiana’s longest-running art exhibition and is considered to be the preeminent juried exhibition of Indiana art by Indiana artists. This year, 225 artists applied to the show and entered more than 570 pieces of artwork. Jurors accepted only 161 pieces from 140 artists – including 23 new artists to the exhibition this year.
While the 161 pieces of art will be on display to the public through October 13, many of the pieces will be for sale too.
In addition to the Hoosier Salon exhibition, a show featuring student artwork will be on display at the museum. The Indiana Electric Cooperatives’ Calendar of Student Art Contest features artwork from K-12 students with the first-place winner from each grade featured in the cooperative’s annual wall calendar.
The cost of both shows is included with the purchase of general museum admission, which is free for Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites members.
Preview Night: Thursday, August 1, 6-9 pm. $75-$100 ticket includes museum admission.
