Open Space: Art About the Land Retrospective
September 30, 2020 – October 30, 2020
Open Space: Art About the Land is an art competition and exhibit which seeks to recognize and encourage artists in Indiana who derive creative inspiration from the land, or whose work celebrates the notion of open space as it relates to the land. The exhibit is a collaborative effort first developed by Minnetrista and Red-tail Conservancy in 2000.
This traveling exhibition is presented at three locations within the service area of the Red-tail Conservancy. It debuts at Minnetrista in Muncie, followed by the Art Association of Henry County in New Castle, and makes its final stop at the Anderson Museum of Art in Anderson. A portion of all proceeds from all art sales during the exhibit help Red-tail Conservancy further its mission to preserve and restore ecologically significant land in East Central Indiana.
The Anderson Museum of Art has purchased 34 works of art for its permanent collection from 30 different Hoosier artists over the past 17 years.
