Indianapolis Museum of Art
2013 Exhibitions: Timeless Beauty (January 11 - May 5), Gabor Peterdi (January 11 - October 13)
Although the Indianapolis Art Museum is one of the nation's oldest encyclopedic museums, they continue to blaze new paths in presenting art and leading institutions. In addition to their expansive collection of European, American, and Asian art, the IMA's facilities include a historic mansion and a nature preserve. Their exhibitions emphasize connections between traditional media, decorative arts, landscape design, and architecture. Recognized throughout the world for their development of open source technology and institutional transparency, the IMA has also won awards for environmental initiatives and public services. After you visit the museum in-person, be sure to stay in touch online, as their site and digital projects are arguably some of the best in the art world.
