Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, along with Treasurer Kelly Mitchell and the Indiana Arts Commission has announced details for the 2022 Hoosier Women Artists exhibition.
Established in 2008, the Hoosier Women Artists exhibition celebrates the importance of the arts in Hoosier communities and highlights the work of talented female artists throughout Indiana.
“Receiving the artwork and meeting the women behind the pieces is something I look forward to every year, and we are pleased to bring back the Hoosier Women Artists program,” Lieutenant Governor Crouch said. “Artists come from different walks of life and have found such beautiful ways to express their abilities. I encourage all those who are interested to submit their work.”
Crouch said a wide variety of visual arts including drawing, painting and photography are welcome to enter. The artwork is selected by a panel that includes Crouch, Mitchell, and peer artists coordinated by the Indiana Art Commission.
Designees of the Hoosier Women Artists exhibition will have their artwork displayed in different offices at the Statehouse for one year to be enjoyed by the thousands of school groups, visitors and staff who explore the building annually. A reception will be held March 3, 2022 at the Indiana Statehouse to honor and showcase the selected artists.
Submissions may be made on the Indiana Art Commission’s Online Application System through Jan. 31, 2022. Applicants will need to create a username and password and select Hoosier Women Artists as the program name.
