INDIANAPOLIS — Looking for ways to find color during the winter months? Let Indiana Art Fair be the solution. The annual event, featuring some of Indiana’s best artists, will take place Saturday, February 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, February 12, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the first and second levels of the museum.

 “I love the Indiana Art Fair because it brings brightness and color to the middle of winter,” said Megan Mance, Indiana State Museum manager of public programs. “February can be such a dreary month, and this event really helps bring an exciting light to those dull days.”
