It is our privilege to announce that an etching by Jason Myers went into the permanent collection of the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette this past week. The museum has graciously offered to allow the piece, "Don't III", to remain on exhibit on the second floor of Conrad Indianapolis for the remainder of the summer.
About the museum: Since its humble beginning in 1909, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette has grown in both size and influence -- engaging, educating, and inspiring the Indiana community through art. Established by Lafayette citizens as a response to the time’s widespread awakening of art interests throughout the state and country, the Museum continues to demonstrate a profound interest in serving the Indiana community.
The Museum connects Indiana to art through its various exhibits, programs, and classes. “Indiana Now 2016: the Bicentennial”, one of three current exhibits at the Museum, celebrates 200 years of Hoosier history and is “the only juried statewide exhibit of current work by Indiana Artists.” The Museum also spearheaded ArtSmart: Indiana, an educational program through which Hoosier youth learn about the state’s history through art, and about art through the state’s history.
