Join us for our October Prop Day with David Steele. This presentation will provide a brief introduction to several portraits painted by Hoosier Group artist Theodore Clement Steele (1847 – 1926). Known by many as an American Impressionist painter and for his Indiana landscapes, this presentation will examine another important, but often overlooked side of Steele’s many talents. Portraits painted by Steele will include politicians, business leaders, educators, and the Propylaeum’s own May Wright Sewall. Several portraits presented are not in public view and this will provide a rare chance to see these portraits of people who have left a meaningful contribution to Indianapolis.
