AFTER A THREE-YEAR, MULTIPHASE RENOVATION PROJECT, THE NEW CONTEMPORARY DESIGN GALLERIES OF THE INDIANAPOLIS MUSEUM OF ART WILL DEBUT ON NOVEMBER 21. WITH MORE THAN 400 OBJECTS FOCUSING ON DESIGN AFTER 1980, AND SPANNING NEARLY 10,000 SQUARE FEET, THIS ADDITION TO THE IMA’S PERMANENT COLLECTION IS ONE OF THE LARGEST DISPLAYS OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGN IN ANY NORTH AMERICAN ART MUSEUM AND AMONG THE FIRST SURVEYS OF RECENT TRENDS IN THIS DYNAMIC FIELD.

DESIGNED FOR DESIGN The new, innovative space, designed by the IMA’s Design Studio in association with Jeff Daly (formerly Senior Design Advisor to the Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art), will feature a three-part space linked to create a dramatic 180-foot-long vista. The architecture of the galleries features articulated bays defined by a coffered ceiling, free-standing walls, floating platforms, and dramatic cantilevered wall cases. “The gallery design will be like no other space in the Museum,” stated Lara Huchteman, exhibition designer at the IMA. “We wanted to create a unique and dynamic experience for our visitors as they viewed these objects, most on display for the first time.” Visitors will enter through an introductory gallery that provides an orientation to the entire installation as well as showcases recent acquisitions and small special exhibitions.

The next space, referred to as the transitional gallery, will concisely illustrate the history of modern design from 1945 to 1980 using highlights from the IMA’s collection. Through the display of a wide range of works, from Modernist chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames to a Postmodernist sculptural piece in the shape of a foot by Gaetano Pesce, this gallery will demonstrate the enormous changes in design technologies and materials that took place in the decades following World War II. As the demand for modern furnishings rose, designers responded by utilizing emerging technologies and new materials such as plastics to create enticing and innovative forms.
The main and final gallery will present the Museum’s collection of contemporary design from 1980 to the present, exploring three stylistic movements—Modernism, Expressionism, and Postmodernism. Masterpieces by established designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Frank Gehry, and Achille Castiglioni will be juxtaposed to objects by emerging artists such as Tord Boontje, Konstantin Grcic, and the Bouroullec brothers. The installation will demonstrate for visitors the complexity of ideas and the variety of movements that have characterized this contemporary era of design.
“THE GALLERY DESIGN WILL BE LIKE NO OTHER SPACE IN THE MUSEUM.”
Profile: Steven Conant, MD
A native of Elkhart, Indiana, Dr. Steven Conant received his bachelor’s degree in zoology from DePauw University and his medical degree in psychiatry from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. Dr. Conant is a psychiatrist and was formerly on the medical staff of Methodist Hospital. A dedicated collector of prints and drawings, Dr. Conant has been a donor to the Museum for almost three decades and a trustee since 1988. He is a member of the Collections Committee and was also a member of its precursor, the Fine Arts Committee, serving as its vice chair from 2001 to 2002. In addition to his gifts of works on paper to the IMA, Dr. Conant has donated 60 pieces of Rookwood pottery as well as a number of contemporary design pieces, including Zaha Hadid’s “Crevasse” Vase for Alessi and Frank Gehry’s “Pito” Tea Kettle in 2009. Dr. Conant’s grandmother, Mrs. H.L. Conant, introduced him to collecting art, and many of his gifts to the IMA are in her memory. The Steven Conant Galleries in Memory of Mrs. H.L. Conant are three galleries in the IMA’s Clowes Pavilion used for the display of the prints and drawings collection. Inspired by his generosity and dedication to the IMA, we asked Dr. Conant about his experiences.
How did you get involved with the IMA? I first became involved with the IMA about 30 years ago with a donation of American ceramics, primarily Rookwood. Some of these were gifts from my paternal grandmother. I had also been collecting in this area. There were two distant relatives who were artists at Rookwood as well. My grandmother played a significant role in the development of my appreciation of fine arts. She had a wonderful “eye” for acquiring ceramics and glass; I have a feeling her taste has been passed on to me. My next interaction at the IMA was with Martin Krause (the IMA’s curator of prints, drawings, and photographs); this was due to my primary interest in American art, especially prints and drawings. This is where the majority of my donations have been, although I’ve given things to most of the other curatorial areas over the years.
What have been some of the highlights of your involvement with the IMA? I suppose the highlights that come to mind are the exhibits of prints and drawings that have focused on specific themes, such as women artists, Atelier 17 prints, Provincetown color woodblock prints, and American abstract prints. What is a favorite piece from the IMA’s collection and why? I would not be able to single out a favorite work from the IMA’s collection. I can, however, point to the wonderful work of Ellen Lee, the Wood-Pulliam Senior Curator, and the IMA’s former director, Bret Waller, for their relationship with Mr. Samuel Josefowitz to make the IMA a world-class destination for art by the Pont-Aven group, including paintings and very rare prints by them.
Why do you support the arts? I support the arts because it is a passion for me. It gives me great pleasure to live with works of art of many different types and periods, and to be able to see exhibitions at the IMA that attract my attention. I would also like to say that it is equally important for me to give back to the communities in which I’ve lived—Indianapolis now, and my hometown of Elkhart, where I have been active for about 20 years in adding to their collection of American art. In the past several years, I have also acquired several works by an Indianapolis artist who is well known here: James Wille Faust. I continue to marvel at his technical prowess, as well as the beauty of his works.
MATISSE, LIFE IN COLOR:
October 13, 2013 through January 12, 2014
MASTERWORKS FROM THE BALTIMORE MUSEUM OF ART
MEMBER PREVIEW DAYS October 11 & 12
“FROM THE MOMENT I HELD THAT BOX OF COLORS IN MY HAND, I KNEW THAT THIS WAS MY LIFE.” –Henri Matisse This fall, the Indianapolis Museum of Art will host a major exhibition of masterworks by the great French artist Henri Matisse (1869–1954). One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Matisse’s stylistic innovations fundamentally altered the course of modern art. His achievements in painting, sculpture, drawing, graphic arts, book illustration, and paper cutouts over a career spanning six decades earned the acclaim of collectors, critics, and several generations of younger artists. Matisse is best known for the daring ways that he used color and pattern in his art, his relentless drive to experiment with new techniques, and his reconsiderations of conventional perspective and form. He aimed to discover the
“essential character of things” and to create art that expressed balance and serenity, as he explained in his Notes of a Painter (1908). Drawn primarily from The Cone Collection of The Baltimore Museum of Art, Matisse, Life in Color explores Matisse’s deliberate and highly self-conscious artistic process. Recognized for his broad range of artistic skills, Matisse resolved artistic questions and reworked themes and compositions by moving between media— investigating issues in sculpture in order to inform his painting, drawing models and then painting them, and creating prints that engage with formal concerns related to his sculpture. Matisse, Life in Color will feature more than 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, prints, and
drawings. The exhibition explores the development of Matisse’s art thematically, considering shifts in his style over the course of his career through the lens of his subjects. Visitors will discover the vast range of works through groupings that address specific themes, such as landscapes, still lifes, interiors, and nudes. A final section focusing on the famous artist book Jazz (1947) presents book illustration, introducing Matisse’s late style and a consideration of subjects that move beyond straightforward narrative and figural representation. Throughout the exhibition, visitors will be able to compare Matisse’s early experiments to his mid-career style and later, more abstract works.

Matisse / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.
HENRI MATISSE Henri Matisse began painting at the age of 20, when his mother bought him art supplies while he recovered from an illness. He soon abandoned his study of law to become an artist. In 1891 Matisse enrolled at the Académie Julian in Paris under the tutelage of William-Adolpe Bouguereau. Initially working in a traditional style, Matisse was introduced to Impressionism and the works of Vincent van Gogh sometime around 1896, and his style consequently shifted dramatically. Inspired and intrigued by the use of color, Matisse for a short time became the leader of what is known as Fauvism—an early 20th-century movement named for painters labeled les fauves, or “wild beasts,” and defined by vibrant color and strong painterly techniques. Matisse’s practice continued to grow, and by the 1910s he had left Fauvism behind and created an artistic approach that was uniquely his own. Matisse and Pablo Picasso became the new leaders of the avant-garde. Both friends and rivals, the artists challenged each other throughout their careers.
About their complicated relationship, Picasso said, “No one has ever looked at Matisse’s painting more carefully than I; and no one has looked at mine more carefully than he.” Matisse’s career spanned the first half of the 20th century—a period defined by rapid innovation. His style, techniques, and subjects evolved throughout the years, but his dedication to growth and artistic skill remained consistent. He worked until the day he died at the age of 84. Just five years earlier, the celebrated art critic Clement Greenberg declared that Matisse was a “self-assured master who can no more help painting well than breathing.” MATISSE AND THE CONE SISTERS OF BALTIMORE Matisse called Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone “my two Baltimore ladies.” In the early years of the 20th century, the two sisters began buying art from the avant-garde artists they met on their frequent trips to Paris, eventually assembling an extensive collection of works by Matisse, Picasso, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cézanne, and other modern masters. The
collection eventually included approximately 3,000 paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and other objects. The Cone sisters’ 500 works by Matisse constitute one of the largest collections of works by the artist in the world. Claribel (1864–1929) and Etta (1870–1949) Cone began purchasing modern art during a period in which the radical innovations of French painters were little understood, even among seasoned art critics and collectors. That two sisters from conservative turn-ofthe-century Baltimore should have so enthusiastically embraced Parisian avant-garde art is perhaps unexpected. The sisters were introduced to the Parisian art world by family friends from Baltimore, the noted writers and collectors Gertrude and Leo Stein. In their trips to Paris, the Cone sisters found a dynamic social circle in the bohemian salons that the Steins hosted, discussing art and literature with other expatriate visitors and Parisian artists and intellectuals alike. Around 1905, the sisters met Matisse and Picasso through this cultural circle and bought their first artworks by the artists.
“THE CHARACTERISTIC OF MODERN ART IS TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR LIFE. A PAINTING IN AN INTERIOR SPREADS JOY AROUND IT BY THE COLORS, WHICH CALM US.” –Henri Matisse
Claribel and Etta Cone had a particularly close relationship with Matisse. They visited him often when they traveled to France, spending time with the artist in his studio and visiting with his wife and children as well. Matisse in turn visited Etta Cone in Baltimore when he came to the US in 1930. The Cone sisters purchased contemporary artwork that Matisse was creating at the height of his career, but eventually their desire to own art that was representative of his entire career led to the purchase of paintings and sculptures that he had created earlier as well. Etta Cone gave the collection that the sisters built over the course of four decades to The Baltimore Museum of Art upon her death in 1949. The gift provides visitors to Baltimore with one of the most comprehensive introductions to Henri Matisse’s art available anywhere in the world. For a short time, visitors to Matisse, Life in Color at the Indianapolis Museum of Art will be able to share in that experience.

EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHTS Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) Interior, Flowers and Parakeets, 1924 Oil on canvas, 46 1/4 x 29 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.252 This painting shows Matisse’s apartment on the place CharlesFélix in Nice, which he occupied from 1921 to 1938. This sumptuous still life provides a portrait of Matisse’s taste as a collector of decorative objects that are often vibrantly colored, patterned, and textured. These objects found their way into many of his interiors painted in Nice, which offered glimpses into the rich and exotic world of his living quarters. Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) Purple Robe and Anemones, 1937 Oil on canvas, 28 3/4 x 23 5/8 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.261 Matisse’s model sits among a wild explosion of color and line. The painting is alive with energy, as the lines in her robe echo the patterns on the wall behind her and the jug in the foreground. In some areas of the composition, such as the purple robe, the artist uses a scraping technique to form stripes. In other parts, such as the decorative elements of the table in the foreground, he uses paint to describe the pattern.
Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) Two Girls, Red and Green Background, 1947 Oil on canvas, 22 1/8 x 18 1/4 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.264 Although Matisse continued to paint through the 1940s, he also began to work increasingly with paper cutouts, since health problems made it difficult for him to stand for long periods of time. This painting is one of a series of canvases Matisse produced in Vence, France, as part of his last, glorious outburst of painting. The intricate details of his Nice interiors have been replaced by a new freedom in his brushwork and drawing, as well as an increased boldness in his color harmonies. Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) Large Reclining Nude, 1935 Oil on canvas, 26 1/8 x 36 3/4 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.258 Matisse sent Etta Cone a sequence of 22 photographs that record his progress on this painting, documenting how he went back and forth between realism and abstraction as he worked out the composition. What had started as a conventional reclining nude has become a stylized masterpiece of geometry, abstracted form, and flat areas of color. Matisse pinned pieces of colored paper to the canvas to work on the composition, a practice that prefigured his exploration with paper cutouts in
the following decades. Numerous pinholes are still visible where Matisse worked out the contours of the torso and hip. Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) Ballet Dancer Seated on a Stool, 1927 Oil on canvas, 32 1/8 x 23 7/8 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.254 For a brief period between 1926 and 1927, Matisse turned from odalisques to undertake a study of ballet dancers. Unlike Edgar Degas’s famous images of ballerinas, Matisse’s paintings, prints, and drawings of dancers are not about the hard work of dancing, warming up, or performing. They are marked rather by relaxation, daydreaming, or sleep. The subjects are models dressed as dancers in the artist’s studio. Like his images of seated models and odalisques, this painting is a vehicle for the exploration of color harmony, pattern, and space. Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) The Pewter Jug, 1917 Oil on canvas, 36 3/8 x 25 1/2 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.230 The focal point of this ambitious still life is a pewter jug that also appears in the painting Purple Robe and Anemones (1937). “I have worked all my life before the same objects,” Matisse admitted in 1952. “The object is an actor: a good actor can have a part in ten different plays; an object can play a different
role in ten different pictures.” In this work the pewter jug links the carefully rendered still life in the foreground with the more generalized and curvilinear drapery in the background. Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) The Yellow Dress, 1929–1931 Oil on canvas, 39 9/16 x 32 1/8 in. The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, 1950.256 Matisse painted women in interiors throughout the 1920s, but this painting can be seen as a major change in his style. The painting combines familiar elements of the Nice works— patterned floors and walls, shuttered windows—with an assertively monumental pose and central position of the figure. Matisse worked on the painting for two years. A series of drawings reveal his experimentation with poses and details of costume over the course of the project. He turned to sculpture to resolve some of the problems with pose and form, creating the bronzes Small Thin Torso (1929) and Venus in a Shell I (1930) concurrently with this painting. The vertical forms in both works share an affinity with the upright pose of the model in The Yellow Dress.

NOW AVAILABLE IN THE MUSEUM STORE Matisse in The Cone Collection: The Poetics of Vision $21.95 Matisse in The Cone Collection breaks new ground by offering the first scholarly exploration of The Cone Collection, donated to The Baltimore Museum of Art in 1950. Doreen Bolger’s foreword traces the Cone sisters’ early association with Leo and Gertrude Stein, their growing friendship with Matisse, and the building of their collection. An essay by Jack Flam guides readers through the sisters’ collection of Matisse’s art, simultaneously charting the artist’s development from his Neo-Impressionist work of the 1890s to his late style of the 1940s, which is marked by the use of cut paper and an increasingly linear language of form.

Fresh and Local The Madeline F. Elder Greenhouse and Shop is excited to offer new products from local and regional artists Jim Dupler, Allison Ford, and Susan Skove. Now available for purchase, these creations are artful yet functional and sure to excite the art lover in all.
JIM DUPLER Jim Dupler grew up in Jamestown, New York, a city noted for its furniture manufacturing. At the age of 10 he acquired his first turning lathe and has been fascinated with woodworking ever since. Dupler honed his craft studying under German, Swedish, and Italian craftsmen and owned and operated a successful custom furniture and antique repair business in New York. Since moving to Indiana in 1994, Dupler has focused more heavily on the creation of art pieces, winning numerous awards and becoming a much sought-after teacher and lecturer. Dupler has created a host of items, many made from wood harvested at the IMA—including bowls, jars, ornaments, and more—for purchase at the Greenhouse Shop.
ALLISON FORD Rings, necklaces, and bracelets by Allison Ford are now available at the Greenhouse Shop. An artisan jeweler, Ford was first inspired at age 11 by the women in her family to collect and eventually create jewelry. She states, “My work comes from things I have learned and seen, my interaction with daily stuff, the stuff of my imagination and dreams.” Ford constantly strives to refine her process and level of expertise. Though she loves each piece she creates, she believes there is something powerful and cathartic in giving shape and life to something, then letting it go. She uses wood as her central raw material, often embedding it with Braille messages using silver or brass. Pieces commissioned by the Greenhouse are created from wood found on the IMA’s campus.
SUSAN SKOVE Susan Skove creates wearable art in the form of beautifully painted silk. Her complex technique requires stretching the silk, drawing the design, fencing in the areas of colors, and applying background color. After two hours of steaming in order to ensure the permanence of the dye, the scarf is complete. When Skove first began painting on scarves, she made production pieces that sold in various high-end women’s fashion stores; now, she allows each individual piece she crafts to be unique. Many of her designs have been inspired by wallpaper patterns in Lilly House, and the IMA is excited to offer these one-of-a-kind works. Portrait by Sam Skove
The Essential Robert Indiana A retrospective of Robert Indiana’s striking screenprints will premiere in the state whose name he adopted as his own. On view at the Indianapolis Museum of Art beginning February 14, 2014, The Essential Robert Indiana will reaffirm the artist’s status as a significant printmaker in modern art and demonstrate the importance of his prints in the context of his larger career. The first museum retrospective of Indiana’s print work since 1969, the exhibition will feature more than 50 works, including 20 from the IMA’s own collection. The Essential Robert Indiana is organized by the IMA with the active participation of the artist and presents a uniquely autobiographical approach to Indiana’s work that has never before been explored in depth. “The IMA was the first museum Robert Indiana ever knew and is one of the leading museums with a depth of holdings in his work, so this exhibition represents a homecoming for the artist on many levels,” said Martin Krause, exhibition curator and curator of prints, drawings, and photographs. “This exhibition will feature Indiana’s most complex, selfreferential, and autobiographical images, revealing new insights about the artist’s inspiration for many of these works.” Obscured beneath the façade of simple words, numbers, shapes, and colors found in Indiana’s art are essential memories and
signifiers of the artist’s life. The Essential Robert Indiana uses material drawn from extensive interviews with the artist to explore the stories behind many of Indiana’s most iconic works. The prints featured in the exhibition include examples of Indiana’s famed LOVE, which began as a Christmas card design and morphed into the most recognizable of Indiana’s images, as well as one of the most iconic images in the history of American art. While Indiana’s LOVE has taken many forms, the most common colors used are red, green, and blue, inspired by the colors of the Phillips 66 gasoline station signs— the company for which his father worked in the 1930s—and the blue of the Hoosier sky. The exhibition will also include his American Dream series and homages to such painters as Pablo Picasso, Charles Demuth, and Marsden Hartley. Especially striking are 21 “autoportraits” made by the artist over the course of his career, which use symbols and forms related to the significant personal events in the year each autoportrait represents. Robert Indiana was born Robert Clark in New Castle, Indiana, in 1928. In 1958 Indiana adopted the name of his native state, a way of acknowledging his roots in the American Midwest. Around this time, screenprinting became Indiana’s preferred print medium; he has observed that screenprinting was an ideal medium for the

hard-edged works for which he became best known. Following his national emergence, Indiana began producing paintings and prints in his classic Pop Art style, establishing a vocabulary of several basic shapes that would endure throughout his career. While occasional figuration or illustration appears in his art, he prefers to utilize geometric shapes to form complex patterns, predominantly featuring primary colors and boldly geometric numbers, letters, words, and phrases that are laced with personal symbolism.

Gabor Peterdi Through January 5, 2014 / Free / Susan and Charles Golden Gallery / Floor 2 This exhibition of 31 prints from the permanent collection features the work of master printmaker Gabor Peterdi (1915–2001). After beginning his career at Stanley William Hayter’s trendsetting Atelier 17 in Paris in 1934, he immigrated to New York at the onset of World War II and settled in the US permanently, teaching first at Brooklyn Museum School of Art and then, until the end of his active life, at Yale. His independent prints are known for his mastery of complex intaglio techniques to create images that lie between abstraction and a surrealist investigation of the inner forces of nature. The Museum’s collection spans most of Peterdi’s career, and while the first prints were collected in the 1960s, most of the rest have been given over the past 20 years by Dr. Steven Conant.
Impressed: Modern Japanese Prints Through January 26, 2014 / Free / Frances Parker Appel Gallery / Floor 3 Impressed: Modern Japanese Prints includes sōsaku hanga, or “creative prints,” from Japanese printmakers Tajima Hiroyuki, Iwami Reika, Saitō Kiyoshi, and Maki Haku. Sōsaku hanga were born from an art movement in early 20th-century Japan. Whereas traditional Japanese woodblock prints were collaboratively produced by a team of skilled artisans directed by a publisher, the sōsaku hanga movement advocated that a single artist controlled every aspect of the creation of a work. In sōsaku hanga, the artist designed, carved, and printed their creations. The works in the exhibition all share the impression of having highly textured surfaces. The results are
remarkably individual and stress the importance of the artist as a sole creator.
FEATURED HOLIDAY EVENTS
Watercolor Society of Indiana Annual Juried Exhibition
November 16, 2013–January 5, 2014
October 11–December 1 / North Hall Gallery / Floor 2 The Watercolor Society of Indiana presents the 31st annual juried exhibition of paintings featuring works in a variety of styles. The Society is made up of more than 300 artist, student, and patron members statewide who produce high-quality watercolor paintings and seek to educate the public about the beautiful transparent medium. Pat Dews will select the paintings and awards for the exhibition.
Efroymson Series: Spencer Finch: Following Nature Through January 19, 2014 / Free / Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion / Floor 1 Brooklyn-based artist Spencer Finch creates mixed-media installations, photographs, and drawings that explore the limits of perception. Bringing together a scientific approach with a nuanced sense of poetics, Finch’s works call attention to various phenomena of the natural world through his investigations of light and color. Finch’s installation for the IMA’s Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion, Following Nature, is composed of an array of nearly 200 panels of glass suspended from the Pavilion’s ceiling, as a reinterpretation of Claude Monet’s iconic water garden in Giverny, France. Made possible by the Efroymson Contemporary Art Fund, an endowed fund at the IMA.
CHRISTMAS AT LILLY HOUSE Christmas at Lilly House for 2013 will be the culmination of the year’s observance of the 100th anniversary of Oldfields. Holiday decor for the house will take inspiration from ideas and trends current during the second decade of the 20th century, when the estate was constructed. Although commercialism and mass-produced decorations were certainly part of the scene at this time, most American homes were not as lavishly decorated as they would become later in the century, and older traditions of using natural materials and blooming plants still held strong. Greenery cut and shipped from southern woodlands, such as palms and magnolia, augmented local materials and greenhouse-grown flowers to provide a wide variety of decorative choices. Christmas at Lilly House 2013 will evoke these early 20th-century traditions, providing a glimpse at how holidays looked when Oldfields was new.

Treat Your Guests to an Artfully Unique Experience
IMA Welcomes New CFO
Hold your next gathering at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Extraordinary indoor and outdoor spaces provide dynamic settings for weddings, private receptions, corporate dinners, fundraising galas, and other special events. The array of locations available for rental includes Pulliam Family Great Hall, with a towering vaulted ceiling and easy access to the galleries; Deer Zink Special Events Pavilion, boasting spectacular views of Sutphin Fountain and the IMA’s breathtaking gardens; and the renowned Garden Terrace and grounds of Oldfields, a National Historic Landmark. Combine these unforgettable venues with Kahn’s Catering to realize your vision for the perfect event.
The IMA is pleased to welcome Jeremiah “Jerry” Wise as the Museum’s new Chief Financial Officer following an extensive search. Wise, who began at the IMA on September 9, is responsible for the finance and human resources departments, and together with the IMA’s Investment committee, manages the IMA’s endowment. He also serves as a staff liaison to the Finance, Compensation, and Audit committees of the Board of Governors. “Jerry’s experience with implementing complex financial strategies while providing vision and leadership will make him an asset to the IMA during this exciting time for the institution,” Venable said. “I am confident his direction will help lead the Museum to continued fiscal integrity and strength.” Wise came to the IMA from the Indianapolis Airport Authority, where he served as Treasurer and Director of New Business Development. Prior to his work at the Indianapolis Airport Authority, Wise worked for the Indiana Public Finance Office and as a consultant. He holds a B.A. from Yale University and a Master’s of Urban Planning from New York University.
