Hoosier Women in Art: My Generation
Our annual Hoosier Women in Art exhibition will be moving online for the month of May! Due to the public health crisis surrounding the novel coronavirus, we’ve decided that it would be safest for artists and guests to engage with this exhibition on our website.
Whether you’re a Baby Boomer, Millennial, or Gen Xer, this exhibition is for you! Featuring artwork in a variety of mediums, this show will display the theme of “generation” through the lens of diverse female and female-identifying artists, including topics such as families through generations, social, political, and cultural climates of different eras, and the diverse artistic styles from various decades. This could also include work created during and/or reflecting on our current climate surrounding the coronavirus and quarantine situation.
Virtual First Friday
Friday, May 1
6:00-8:00 PM via Instagram (@GPACIndyParks)
Join us for a virtual version of our monthly exhibition opening, and create your own GPAC First Friday experience at home! Stop by the Garfield Brewery for carryout growlers, walkies, or wine (follow @garfieldbrewery on Facebook or Instagram for updates on carryout hours). Put on our Spotify or YouTube playlist of local female musicians and female-fronted bands curated by Sofar Sounds Indianapolis (check back on our website and social media for the link). Then, follow our Instagram page for posts released between 6:00-8:00 PM featuring highlighted artist work from our May show and their inspiration behind those pieces. Engage during First Friday by commenting on your favorites, following these talented artists, and contacting artists to purchase pieces and support our creative economy to show how #IndyKeepsCreating!
