“Plein air painting–the practice of painting outdoors–has a long and storied history in Indiana, inspired by the work of T.C. Steele and the Hoosier Group, Frank Dudley and so many others. What we see in the Historic Indiana En Plein Air show is that the beauty of the Indiana landscape continues to excite and motivate artists around the state to do their best work.”
CATHY FERREE | PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE INDIANA STATE MUSEUM AND HISTORIC SITES
“This exhibit combines the very best of Hoosier art and the accomplishments of statewide historic preservation. We’re honored to host the inaugural exhibition for this unique artistic partnership between IPAPA and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.”
