The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites has issued a call for artists to paint the official portrait of Governor Mike Pence. The portrait will become part of the Indiana Governors Portrait Collection, overseen by the museum.
The approximately 42” X 32” unframed work must be oil or acrylic on stretched canvas or linen. There will be an initial opportunity to photograph the governor and one follow up meeting to discuss the composition.
Artist selection is anticipated by October 31, 2016 with a completion date for the portrait of late spring 2017; the unveiling of the portrait will take place summer of 2017. Please note, due to current travel requirements for Governor Pence, the artist’s schedule must be flexible and may include travel. All travel costs will be reimbursed.
Eligibility: Applicant must be a resident or native of Indiana or a graduate of an Indiana institution of higher learning. Preference will be given to Indiana residents.
