The United States is in the middle of a crisis that’s impacting our families and communities, and Indiana is at the epicenter: opioid use disorder.

In 2020, the Indiana State Museum plans to talk about it.

In a powerful new exhibit– FIX: Heartbreak and Hope Inside Our Opioid Crisis –the Indiana State Museum is committed to finding ways for Indiana communities to come together to shift the conversation and reduce the stigma surrounding opioid use disorder. Our goal is to remove the shame and isolation surrounding this disease, showing how all of us can play a pivotal role in finding solutions to this devastating crisis.

This is the media center for the exhibit, where you’ll find logos, the news release, the list of community partners and other digital assets.

For more information about the exhibit, be sure to check out the exhibit landing page or read through our FAQs on this exhibit.

You can also learn more about the museum’s decision to explore this topic in an exhibit by reading this blog post from our president and CEO, Cathy Ferree.
