Historic Indiana En Plein Air art project launches
Start Date: 5/13/2019
Event Description:

The Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association (IPAPA) are partnering on a project that will eventually culminate with a traveling museum exhibition titled “Historic Indiana En Plein Air.”


During the next 15 months IPAPA artist members will paint scenes from nearly 2,000 Indiana entries in the National Register of Historic Places, and 60 paintings will be selected to commemorate the event and tour throughout the state.


“En plein air” is defined as the act of painting outdoors, as opposed to studio painting.


Indiana’s state historic preservation office will be 50 years old in 2020. The eventual tour will celebrate the DNR’s 50 years of managing Indiana’s portion of the National Register of Historic Places. A perfect-bound four-color extended catalog will be produced to accompany the tour.


Once the selection of the paintings is complete, an opening exhibition will be held at the Indiana State Museum in September 2020. After that, the exhibit will travel to different museums throughout the state for a year.
