Art from the Heartland and Herron, Sewall, & Steele

Herron, Sewall, and Steele
Harrison Center for the Arts
Opening Reception June 3rd 6PM to 9PM

I will have two brand new pieces on display at the Harrison Center for the Art's City Gallery this First Friday.

"The City Gallery presents “Herron, Sewall and Steele.” This group show honors prominent culture builders who shaped the story of the arts in Indiana. This exhibit celebrates the work of May Wright Sewall, founder of the Art Association of Indianapolis; John Herron, unexpected funder of the State’s first art museum and art school; and T.C. Steele, Indiana’s foremost painter (also a founding member of the Art Association). The show will feature new commissioned works of art and spoken word ballads inspired by the stories of these cultural leaders whose lives and legacy contributed to the historic John Herron Art Institute (now Herron School of Art and Design), and whose actions advanced art, culture and social justice throughout our State. Contemporary Indiana artists were selected to create art inspired by their stories. “Herron, Sewall and Steele” is a signature project of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission  and is made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission."

 Be sure to also check out the Independent Music + Arts Festival on June 11th at the Harrison Center.  For more information check out the City Gallery.
