As part of the 200th anniversary celebration for the State of Indiana, Mark Ruschman, art curator at the Indiana State Museum, has created a show called “Two Hundred Years of Indiana Art: A Cultural Legacy.” Tuck’s bronze200 Years of Indiana Art sculpture, Femme d’Afrique, was one of the artworks chosen to show the legacy being created by today’s living artists.
The show traces Indiana art from Pioneers and Native Americans through all the groups we associate with Indiana, like Brown County artists and the Hoosier Salon. to modern day. The labels were so well researched, I wish they were making the show into a book!
The Indiana State Museum is in White River State Park in Indianapolis. The show continues through October 2nd.
