Sixty-plus Hoosier artists to showcase at Indiana Art Fair

Staff Report 

From black-and-white photography to insects displayed in glass, the Indiana Art Fair offers an opportunity for guests to browse the offerings of more than 60 different Hoosier artists and engage with them about their unique art styles.

The Indiana Art Fair is Feb. 10 and 11 at the museum. Art on display and for sale will include traditional art such as photography, paintings or jewelry, as well as some more unusual offerings – including pressed flowers, ceramics that incorporate horse hair, leatherworking art and more.

Though in its 15th year, the art fair continues bringing new artists and innovative creations. New this year, the art fair will feature an emerging artist expo, with several emerging Hoosier artists’ work on display and for sale. For most of those in the expo, this is the first time they’ll be able to actually display and sell their work.

The Indiana Art Fair is presented by Old National Bank and supported by the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the City of Indianapolis

Art Fair admission is included with purchase of general museum admission, which also grants guests access to all museum galleries.
