State of Indiana Accepting Applications for Official Portrait of Governor Mike Pence
The state of Indiana is now accepting applications from Hoosier artists to paint the official portrait of Governor Mike Pence. The Indiana State Museum will coordinate the selection process to determine the artist who will paint the approximately 42-inch by 32-inch oil or acrylic portrait.
A gubernatorial portrait is completed for each Indiana governor and will become part of the historic governor’s portrait collection, managed by the Indiana State Museum. Interested applicants have until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016 to submit their applications, which must include the following:
Finalists will be determined in mid-October and the selected artist will be named by the end of October. The painting will be completed by the end of June 2017 with an unveiling of the portrait expected by summer 2017.
Historically, private funding is used to pay for the artist’s commission and framing and the same practice will be followed for the commission and framing of Governor Pence’s portrait. Any remaining funds are maintained by the Indiana State Museum for the preservation and exhibition of the collection.
