From the Director
There’s so much to enjoy in this issue of the IMA Magazine. Highlights include stories on the exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe and the Southwestern Still Life, our monumental and colorful acquisition by Roy Lichtenstein, and several new faces you will start seeing at the Museum. However, a thread throughout that particularly struck me is about volunteering at the IMA. As members, you know that the IMA is a very big place. We have the 660,000-square-foot main building, the 52-acre Oldfields–Lilly House & Gardens estate, and The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres. In addition, there are the Miller House and Garden in Columbus and the director’s residence, Westerley, along with a host of other buildings on campus. Each day about 300 full- and part-time employees do their part to maintain the beauty of all these facilities and provide exceptional programming for our visitors. But like many beloved museums and cultural attractions around the country, the job is so big that there is no way our staff can do everything. That’s where our trusted volunteers come in! In all, the IMA has approximately 645 volunteers who donate more than 30,000 hours each year. Volunteers help in the Madeline F. Elder Greenhouse and our beautiful gardens, caring for thousands of plants. They assist in the conservation science lab, registration, curatorial, public programs, administrative offices, and the library. Our Governors and Life Trustees are volunteers, and if you ever take a tour with one of our terrific docents, you are being guided by a volunteer. As the IMA expands its public programs and enhances its gardens and parkland, it can only do so in large part because of our growing number of loyal volunteers. So be sure to contact us if you would like to learn more about joining their ranks. I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to everyone who gives to the IMA, including those who volunteer their time, skill, and enthusiasm. Without your dedication, we simply could not achieve all we do in service to our community and the world beyond. Thank you.

The ancient land and rich cultural traditions of the Southwest region of the United States fueled the imaginations of many early 20th-century artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe. The evocative still-life paintings produced by these artists provide a fascinating example of art’s capacity to document the essence of a place and time. Georgia O’Keeffe and the Southwestern Still Life will feature works by O’Keeffe and her contemporaries that help tell the story of the American Southwest as seen through the eyes of the artists that lived there. It is the first major exhibition to focus on the role of the still life as a means of exploring the culture and diversity of the region. Home of arresting desert vistas, rugged terrain, and distinctive plant and animal life, the Southwest is one of the most awe-inspiring regions of America. Numerous 20th-century artists were drawn to its beauty. Some artists stayed for long periods of time, while others passed through only for short visits, but a great many were moved to capture the land in their art. One might imagine, naturally enough, that the typical vehicle for doing so would be the landscape. However, many of the most striking images of the Southwest that these artists produced were still-life paintings that depicted objects that defined and symbolized the region. The breadth of these artists’ subjects and styles resulted in an array of compelling
images that reflect the unique character of the American Southwest. Approximately 60 such works will be on view in the IMA exhibition, which will primarily be organized around groups of still-life subjects such as flowers and edibles, cultural artifacts, and bones. Throughout, the exhibition will prompt visitors to expand their understanding of what a still life is and what it can convey. Georgia O’Keeffe’s still lifes are instrumental to how we envision the Southwest. O’Keeffe first traveled to the Southwest in 1917, when she spent a few days in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and was immediately captivated by the region. However, her next opportunity to return wasn’t until 1929, when she was invited as a guest of Mabel Dodge Luhan, a wealthy American art patron who had established an art and literary colony in Taos. The following year O’Keeffe began her regular summer sojourns to New Mexico. Searching for a quieter place to stay than the bustling Luhan compound, she discovered the more secluded Ghost Ranch and spent every summer there from 1934 until 1940. O’Keeffe later purchased and renovated a ruined hacienda in the village of Abiquiu, and in 1949 she moved permanently to New Mexico, spending part of each year at either Ghost Ranch or Abiquiu. During O’Keeffe’s exploration of the surrounding landscape, she discovered the animal bones that

littered the desert floor. These unusual objects inspired O’Keeffe from the first time she saw them, bleached white from lying in the sun. She called the remains “as beautiful as anything I know” and considered them symbols of the place she had come to love and call home: “To me they are strangely more living than the animals walking around—hair, eyes and all, with their tails switching, the bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive on the desert even tho’ it is vast and empty and untouchable— and knows no kindness with all its beauty.” The paintings by O’Keeffe in the exhibition illustrate the variety of still-life subjects that will be on display. Several feature the skeletal remains she described so eloquently; she also painted works that reflect an awareness of Pueblo culture and artifacts. Among her favorite subjects during her time at Abiquiu was the patio of her newly renovated adobe home, and the shadowed passageway leading to the
sunlit patio became a prominent focus of these still lifes. However, when thinking of O’Keeffe’s still-life paintings, flowers are probably the subjects that first come to mind to many viewers. The exhibition includes a number of such works concentrating on floral subjects, all depicted in the close-up, vibrantly colored style for which O’Keeffe is best known. Georgia O’Keeffe’s iconic still lifes were influential in the development of an energetic Southwestern art scene that flourishes yet today. A key component of the exhibition is its inclusion of works by other artists who similarly drew on the expressive potential of the still life to capture the spirit of the Southwest region. Some of their names will likely be familiar to IMA audiences. The American Modernist Marsden Hartley, for example, found inspiration during a yearlong stay in New Mexico and created still-life paintings in which he depicted New Mexican subjects such as Hispanic santos, or saints. The Indiana-born Victor Higgins relocated permanently to Taos and became an important figure in the Southwest art scene. Many of his Southwestern still lifes contain brightly colored flowers set in Native American pottery; local textiles also feature prominently in these works. Other artists, though, may prove to be discoveries for many viewers. The range of approaches they engage in addressing their Southwestern subjects allows for a notably multifaceted investigation of the exhibition theme. A broad variety of additional interpretive experiences will be available in the exhibition. Audio guides and rich in-gallery video content will provide expanded information on key works, artists, and themes. The Inspired by O’Keeffe school competition and exhibition will offer schools a meaningful opportunity to integrate and respond to the featured exhibition in the classroom, and selected student
works will be displayed in the gallery. Visitors can even create their own still lifes in a dedicated drawing studio space within the exhibition gallery. All these activities will contribute to a deeper understanding of how a still life can resonate with intensely personal meaning—knowledge shared by O’Keeffe and the many artists she influenced.
This exhibition is presented by The Alliance of the IMA, with additional support provided by Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

SUTPHIN FOUNTAIN BY THE NUMBERS • 27 high-powered jets are used to spray water • 10,000 gallons of water pump through the fountain every minute • 352 granite blocks create the sunburst design • 15 feet is the height of the central water spray • 42 years since the Fountain’s dedication
For more than four decades, millions of visitors to the IMA have been greeted by jets of water gracefully surging into the air. Nestled between the Museum building and The Dudley and Mary Louise Sutphin Mall is the monumental Sutphin Fountain. Boasting hundreds of handcrafted blocks of granite laid out in a sunburst pattern, the fountain operates year-round as a dramatic focal point and beloved gathering place. The design of the fountain—by Stuart O. Dawson of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates Inc.—has long been an icon for the Museum, first serving as the inspiration for the Museum’s logo for more than two decades, and currently as the graphic identity for the Second Century Society. Thanks to the generosity of the
Sutphin family, the fountain was dedicated in memory of Samuel Brady Sutphin on October 25, 1972. Today the Sutphin Fountain continues to welcome and delight visitors to the IMA.
ANNUAL FOUNDERS DAY DINNER The first Founders Day Dinner was held October 11, 1982, on the occasion of the Museum’s centennial celebration. After the success of the inaugural event, the evening has become a much-anticipated annual affair. The celebration also marked the launch of the IMA’s Second Century Society, a prestigious group of individuals established in 1983 to lead the IMA into its second century of existence. The organization continues to be a vital source of operating income for the Museum.
In honor of their continuous commitment, members of the Second Century Society, Founders Society, and Legacy Circle are welcome to join the Board of Governors for the Founders Day Dinner and a special exhibition preview of Georgia O’Keeffe and the Southwestern Still Life.

Staff Profile: Dr. Tricia Y. Paik This summer the IMA welcomed Dr. Tricia Y. Paik as its new curator of contemporary art. Before joining the IMA in August, Paik served as the associate curator of modern and contemporary art at the Saint Louis Art Museum, where she oversaw the museum’s collection of painting, sculpture, mixed media, and new media from 1945 to the present. While at SLAM she also curated two ongoing contemporary exhibition programs, as well as a number of significant indoor and outdoor installations. A graduate of Dartmouth College and New York University, Paik has also held positions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
What drew you to pursue a career as a curator of contemporary art? That’s a great question, because when I started out in the art world almost 25 years ago, it wasn’t originally my goal to become a contemporary curator. In fact, I first considered working at a gallery specializing in Old Masters, and then when in graduate school for art history, the latest period I studied was art of the 1970s. The thought of becoming a contemporary curator didn’t start taking shape until a few years into a curatorial assistant position at MoMA, though the job entailed working with the drawings collection from 1880 to 1945. So I worked on more historical shows while there but was also given the opportunity to do smaller assignments on contemporary artists. By that time, I had been living in New York for about a decade and had spent a lot of time visiting galleries and artist studios in SoHo, Tribeca, and the then-growing scene in Chelsea. I really liked the vitality and variety of the art that I saw. That’s when it dawned on me— that all art, of course, was once contemporary. I realized then that I could continue being an art historian while also working with
contemporary artists—working on projects as the art was being made. That was an inspiring proposition. What excites you about the IMA’s contemporary art collection and program? My predecessors have already built a strong collection, so I’m thrilled about taking up that mantle. The contemporary program at the IMA is quite ambitious, especially through its scale—its spacious gallery footprint inside, as well as outside with The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres. I am just so honored to be able to curate in all these spaces for our public! While I like looking toward the future and thinking about where artists will take us visually, aesthetically, conceptually, I also enjoy putting contemporary art in the context of what has come before. I hope to work on exhibitions and acquisitions that will allow for intriguing connections across the entire IMA collection. Offering such conversations between different periods and cultures can be quite illuminating and is just the kind of meaningful experience that an encyclopedic museum such as the IMA can provide for our audiences. Also,
what is quite exciting as well as unique for a comprehensive museum is the IMA’s dedication to the natural environment. I love that it’s a part of the Museum’s mission. I’m proud to be joining a community committed to nature as much as to art. What are you looking forward to the most about living in Indianapolis? I’m very pleased about continuing to live in the Midwest, having just come from St. Louis, where I was for five years. I will admit that having been raised on the West Coast and having lived most of my life on the East Coast, I was exposed to the extremely unfair bias that Chicago was the only worthwhile city in the Midwest! Of course, after I moved to St. Louis I was quickly corrected of such a wrong attitude, as my life there truly exceeded my expectations. Since I’m still learning about Indianapolis, I’m looking forward to being surprised and amazed by what’s special, unique, and rewarding about this city, the way life unfolded for me in my prior Midwestern city. Having lived in New York for many years, I will
also admit that I bought my first car just five years ago! So I look forward to embracing life in a town passionate for cars. Maybe it will rub off on me, and I will be inspired to take an auto repair class. Or maybe I’ll finally learn how to drive stick. Any willing teachers out there?

Five Brushstrokes by Roy Lichtenstein At a community ceremony on August 29, the Indianapolis Museum of Art debuted Five Brushstrokes, a monumental work by Roy Lichtenstein that was commissioned in the early 1980s but never before assembled. The sculpture is considered to be Lichtenstein’s most ambitious work in his Brushstroke series. Consisting of five separate elements, the tallest of which soars 40 feet into the air, Five Brushstrokes unites a striking collection of forms and colors and is one of Lichtenstein’s premier “scatter pieces.” Installed on The Dudley and Mary Louise Sutphin Mall in front of the main Museum building, Five Brushstrokes is a prominent new addition to the IMA’s celebrated collection of 20th- and 21st-century sculptures and provides an awe-inspiring welcome to IMA visitors. “We have been working in partnership with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation in New York for more than a year to bring this iconic work of art to Indianapolis,” said Dr. Charles L. Venable, The Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO at the IMA. “I am thrilled that with the generous help of some special donors, the IMA is able to acquire this key work by one of America’s greatest artists. I am confident it will become a beloved addition to the cultural landscape of our state similar to Robert Indiana’s original LOVE, which has long greeted our visitors,” continued Venable. Five Brushstrokes has been acquired through the generosity of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and the late Robert and Marjorie Mann of Indianapolis, who
established an acquisitions fund for contemporary sculpture through a bequest in 2011. The installation was generously underwritten by Ersal and Izabela Ozdemir. “Roy Lichtenstein always wanted his work installed in relationship to other peer artists, so we are all delighted to have worked with the IMA to find such a great home for Five Brushstrokes in the Museum’s gardens,” said Dr. Jack Cowart, director of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation. He continued, “It has been our pleasure, and with the appreciation of the Lichtenstein family, to facilitate this partial gift to such a remarkable museum setting. We thank the IMA and its Board and supporters for choosing this most adventurous path and for being the first institution to install Five Brushstrokes.”
ABOUT FIVE BRUSHSTROKES Five Brushstrokes was originally commissioned by the Stuart Collection at the University of California, San Diego, in the early 1980s. Throughout much of 1983 and 1984 Lichtenstein worked on the commission, sketching his thoughts, creating color cutouts of each element, and then making a wooden maquette of the work. However, when the final full specifications were determined, the sculpture’s huge scale prevented its fabrication. Following Lichtenstein’s death in 1997, the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation was established with the purpose of increasing the world’s exposure to the work of Roy Lichtenstein, and the Foundation funded the fabrication of two examples of Five Brushstrokes in 2012: the artist
proof acquired by the Indianapolis Museum of Art and an edition of one that is still owned by the Foundation.
ABOUT ROY LICHTENSTEIN Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923–1997) was born in New York City and had his first solo exhibition in the city in 1951. By 1962 Lichtenstein was showing at the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery, where he exhibited his signature comic strip paintings. He also made sculptural works in the early 1960s in the form of utilitarian objects and mannequin-style heads, both directly influenced by his paintings. As his career progressed, the artist’s sculpture evolved with his painting. In the 1980s this convergence of media culminated in his monumental Brushstroke sculpture series. Evoking the movement and color of paint on canvas, these totemic works suspend the artist’s sweeping brushstrokes in midair, balancing one on top of the other in a dynamic sculptural spectacle. Examples from the Brushstroke series are now in the collections of leading museums around the world, including the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles) and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC).

TAG: Early Childhood Education and the Arts
The magical journey of learning and exploration during the early childhood years is an unparalleled time of wonder and discovery. It is also a determining time of development that provides the foundation for all future learning. Experiences that are anchored in the arts are particularly well suited for young children because the arts naturally teem with opportunities to engage the whole child through multisensory exploration. Early and positive experiences with the arts also establish feelings of self-efficacy and initiate memories that last throughout a learner’s lifetime. Responding to the potential associated with this exceptional period of development, the IMA launched the Toddler Art Groups (TAG) program in September 2013—the first IMA
school program designed specifically to serve the academic needs of preschoolers. From September through May, 20 students from St. Mary’s Child Center, a local preschool with a strong commitment to serving children in poverty, visited the IMA twice each month for TAG time. A typical TAG session began with a hunt for TAG Tiger, a stuffed animal who often napped in the galleries. Guided by a modified version of the children’s song “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt,” students located TAG Tiger, took her for a walk to look at art, and then found a good spot near the galleries to read her a story. Story time was followed by sensory activities that helped students build their own understanding of the artwork and to establish
positive relationships more broadly with art, learning, and the Museum. On their following visit, students explored art making in an IMA studio classroom and reconnected with an artwork that resonated with the children during their previous visit. For example, after visiting the Julianne Swartz: How Deep Is Your exhibition, students created their own sound collages using digital recorders, mesh, lights, and ribbons. The TAG program was constructed through collaboration with two organizations: St. Mary’s Child Center and Arts for Learning. During the pilot year, one St. Mary’s Child Center preschool class of four- and five-year-olds visited the IMA for an hour each Thursday during the yearlong program. Arts for Learning, the
MANAGER OF ACADEMIC ENGAGEMENT AND LEARNING RESEARCH
Indiana affiliate of the national nonprofit Young Audiences, partnered with the IMA to provide the teaching artist as well as an at-school extension of the program. The PNC Foundation has awarded a grant that will underwrite the expansion of the program to serve 100 students and 18 teachers next school year.

Volunteering at the IMA main building and grounds. Volunteers also receive computer training and an introduction to the IMA’s volunteer software system, which allows staff and volunteers to communicate with each other as well as track and schedule hours. Some volunteer areas, such as the gardens and grounds, require additional interviews and training. Volunteer opportunities are currently available in the following areas: security support, The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres, visitor information, special events and projects, The Toby, the Museum Store, membership, gardens and grounds, and the African Art Activity Space. From our founding in 1883, the IMA has continuously relied on the generosity of our volunteers. Today, we have more than 500 active volunteers in our Museum database. These hardworking individuals help at various locations around the Museum campus and assist with special events and educational programs. Our volunteers are integral to the IMA’s success, as our capacity to provide outstanding service and programs for our visitors depends on the donated time and talents of these individuals.
BECOMING A VOLUNTEER Volunteering at the IMA is customized to your skills, personality, and schedule. Individuals interested in becoming a volunteer at the Museum will complete an application process. Once accepted, volunteers will participate in a mandatory—and fun—orientation process that includes basic skills training and a guided tour of the

DR. ANNETTE SCHLAGENHAUFF
ASSOCIATE CURATOR FOR RESEARCH
Paul Gauguin’s Still Life with Profile of Laval The release in February 2014 of the movie The Monuments Men prompted much public interest in the activities of the remarkable men and women who sought to protect the world’s cultural heritage during and after World War II. Recent research at the IMA has revealed that Gauguin’s Still Life with Profile of Laval, a painting acquired by the IMA in 1998, can be linked to a particular Monuments Man—one, in fact, who hailed from Indiana. During the months preceding its acquisition in 1998, along with 16 other paintings from the School of Pont-Aven that were owned by Swiss collector Samuel Josefowitz, Still Life with Profile of Laval came under considerable scrutiny because of its WWII-era provenance. In due-diligence efforts to ensure clear title to each painting, the IMA contacted the Art Loss Register (ALR), whose Division of Historic Claims documents art looted during the Holocaust. While initial results of these inquiries cleared the works, further research by the IMA and ALR led to information that delayed the acquisition for several weeks. The Gauguin was found to have once belonged to the prominent Jewish banker and industrialist Mór Lipót Herzog, who had assembled one of the best and largest art collections
in Budapest, Hungary, in the early 20th century—and the ALR reported that some heirs to the Herzog family were in the midst of filing claims for the restitution of paintings that had been looted by the Nazis, with Hungarian government support, in spring 1944. It became urgent to gather biographical information on the family, confirm which heir had inherited the painting, and determine whether proper restitution had occurred after the war. Facts were assembled by a team consisting of researchers at the ALR; members of the IMA staff including Ellen Lee, now The Wood-Pulliam Senior Curator, and then-director Bret Waller; and Josefowitz, who was assisted by a Hungarian provenance researcher charged with combing the Hungarian National Archives for clues.

The investigation showed that upon Mór Lipót Herzog’s death in 1934, the collection was divided among his three children, and Still Life with Profile of Laval had been inherited by the middle son, András Herzog. He had married and divorced Maria Izabella Parravicini, with whom he fathered two children. The staunchly anti-Semitic Hungarian government sent András Herzog to a forced labor camp in 1942, where he died a year later. During the course of the war, the Herzog siblings attempted to safeguard major portions of their collection in the cellar of a factory they owned in a Budapest suburb. The cache of art works was discovered, however, and seized by the Nazis in spring 1944. Some paintings were appropriated by Adolf Eichmann’s Sonderkommando (Special Action Unit) and others were sequestered and brought to the basement of Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts for storage. To this day litigation continues for many significant works of art that were never restituted to the Herzog heirs, but information obtained in 1998 revealed that Still Life with Profile of Laval had been returned to a Countess István Bethlen in 1948. With the assistance of genealogical dictionaries Waller was able to close the circle: Maria Izabella Parravicini had remarried after her divorce from András Herzog and had become Countess István Bethlen. The painting was returned to Maria Izabella, the ex-wife of András, likely on behalf of their children. After the painting’s return an export license for it was granted, which is corroborated by a stamp on the back of the canvas that
bears the Hungarian crest. The painting promptly left Hungary, entering the art market in Switzerland. After a succession of owners it was purchased by Josefowitz at auction in 1980. The painting’s history seemed to suggest that Still Life with Profile of Laval may have remained in the basement of the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest during the later years of the war, prior to its return to the family. However, an additional chapter of its story can now be written—one that includes Thomas Carr Howe Jr., a Monuments Man from Indiana. Housed within the archives of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, is a collection of photographs of artworks that passed through the Munich Central Collecting Point (MCCP). The MCCP was established in 1945 to process art located in Nazi hiding places by the Allies in the final days of World War II and to restitute it to its nation of origin. An image specialist at the NGA discovered a photo of Still Life with Profile of Laval in this archive and contacted the IMA. The question became: under what circumstances did this painting travel from Budapest to Munich and back again? In late 1944 and early 1945, the Axis countries, including Hungary, took steps to safeguard art treasures from advancing Allied troops on both the western and eastern fronts. Responding to the Russian threat, two train cars were loaded with art from Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts, including the painting by Gauguin. The shipment traveled westward to various sites, eventually arriving in the German town of Grassau in
April 1945. All the while the works were accompanied by Dénes Csánky, the director of the Museum of Fine Arts—a clear indication of their importance to Hungary. In May 1945 US Navy lieutenant Thomas Carr Howe Jr. took up his appointment as a Monuments Man, assisting the military to recover stolen art. Raised in Indianapolis and the son of Butler University president Thomas Carr Howe Sr., he pursued a career as an art museum professional, advancing to the position of director of the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco by 1939. During his ten months as a Monuments Man he participated in missions at several major sites, including the salt mine at Alt Aussee, where the art intended for Hitler’s planned Führermuseum at Linz had been hidden, as well as the castle of Neuschwanstein, where the Nazis had stashed art looted from Jewish collections in France. Upon his return to the US he was approached by the Indianapolis publisher Bobbs-Merrill to write an account of his time in Europe. Based on the detailed diaries he had kept, and armed with the letters his wife had retained, Howe authored Salt Mines and Castles: The Discovery and Restitution of Looted European Art, which was published in 1946. At this point the story of the IMA’s Still Life with Profile of Laval intersects with Howe’s vivid narrative. On his very first solo mission Howe was sent to Grassau to secure the art from Budapest. In his book he recounts in detail his altercation with Csánky, who understandably did not welcome this mission undertaken on the

But Howe succeeded in transporting the Grassau cache—more than eighty cases in all, loaded onto five trucks—to Munich, and subsequently delivered it to the MCCP. Although restitutions from the MCCP proceeded first to non-enemy nations, leaving Italy and Hungary at the end of the queue, by late December 1946 shipments started to make their way to Hungary. On a third and final shipment, dated April 21, 1947, Still Life with Profile of Laval left Munich for Budapest. Gauguin’s small masterpiece was returned to András Herzog’s ex-wife the following year and cleared for export from Hungary. Thus, with the help of a Monuments Man from Indiana, we have been able to provide a more comprehensive account of the winding journey of Gauguin’s Still Life with Profile of Laval to the IMA.

Volunteer Profile: Greg Raley-Barrett Greg Raley-Barrett has been a volunteer at the IMA since the Penrod Arts Fair of 2012 and a member for more than six years. During his tenure as a volunteer, his areas of service have included special events, festivals, Lilly House, Winter Nights, The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series, and the Welcome Desk. When he’s not volunteering at the Museum, he creates collaborative online spaces for Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations. Inspired by his dedicated support of the Museum, we asked Raley-Barrett some questions about his experience as a volunteer.
What inspires you to volunteer at the IMA? I am an Indianapolis native, and the IMA has been one of my favorite places for as long as I can remember. When I was in middle school, I would ride my bike to the Museum at least once a week and try to memorize as many pieces of art as I could. I would secretly follow the docents around on their tours and later, when I returned to the IMA with family or friends, I would pretend to be a tour guide and relay what I had learned—not always accurately. The Museum has always been there for me as I grew up. It instilled in me a passion for culture, history, beauty, and whimsy. The Museum taught me to think critically, apply empathy, and look deeper than the surface. I volunteer so that I can try to convey all those things to others and to ensure that the IMA can inspire future generations.
What’s one memory you can share from your experiences volunteering? Working as a volunteer has allowed me to meet so many people and share a wealth of experiences. Every opportunity to volunteer is an opportunity to create new memories. My favorite experience occurred during volunteer recognition week at the IMA. The volunteers were treated to different events throughout the week, including a behind-thescenes tour of the IMA art storage facilities. Being able to explore the wealth of works in storage at the IMA and to be able to ask the experts questions about every aspect of the Museum was an experience that I will treasure. Not only did I gain a deeper understanding of what the IMA does for the community, I truly felt the appreciation of every staff member at the IMA. They made all of the volunteers feel like an important part of the IMA family.
What’s your favorite work of art in the IMA’s collection and why? Asking me about my favorite work of art is like asking me what my favorite food is. It depends on my mood, my recent obsessions, or what is being featured in the current exhibitions. But if I were to pick a work that I always have to stop and visit on a regular basis, it would be the painting of Aristotle by Jusepe de Ribera, on display in the Clowes Pavilion. I can remember seeing it for as long as I have been coming to the IMA, since the early ’70s. It is a painting of a simple man in worn garments, his face and hands wrinkled and weathered. This image is honest and unpretentious even though the subject is one of great genius. The emotions that the painting evokes are complex; every time I view it I feel something new.
Why should others volunteer at the IMA? There are countless reasons why you should volunteer at the IMA. You get the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone in a safe environment. Volunteering allows you to experience and learn about things up close and personally. Every time I arrive at the Museum for a volunteer opportunity, I am introduced to new ideas, people, and concepts. And I always return home energized, motivated, and feeling more creative than ever. Volunteering at the IMA recharges my creative energy.

The Fashion Arts Society of the IMA The IMA has been collecting textiles and fashion arts for more than a century. The first item acquired was an Irish embroidered table runner purchased in 1888; since that time, the Museum has built a collection of nearly 7,000 items. From Asian and African ceremonial textiles to quilts and coverlets from Indiana, the collection represents all of the world’s major traditions in fabric.

Launched in 2010 in conjunction with the exhibition Body Unbound: Contemporary Couture from the IMA’s Collection, the IMA’s Fashion Arts Society (FAS) was formed to promote interest in and appreciation of textile and fashion arts through the study of couture and cloth from around the world. Over the last four years, the group has advanced this mission by hosting special events, talks, and public programs. Among the most popular FAS events have been the annual Hats Off luncheon, the wildly successful Project IMA fashion shows, and behind-the-scenes tours of private and public collections. All highlight a seamless integration of educational and social interests, a key emphasis of each IMA Affiliate Group. “In joining the Fashion Arts Society, I believe one takes their love of fashion to an important next step. Whether founded on personal style and wardrobe building (a.k.a. shopping!) or a more industry-based interest in textiles, garment construction, and collecting, joining FAS means becoming part of a vibrant collective that seeks to honor Indiana’s immense fashion legacy and grow the IMA fashion collection,” stated Kimann Schultz, current president of FAS. “We thrive on the individuality of our members and their personal styles and honor the fundamental creativity it represents. With fashion as the foundation of our
friendship building, we have a group that is beautifully inclusive and diverse.” FAS is leading the way as fashion becomes an increasingly important part of the fabric of Indianapolis’s culture. With nearly 100 members, the group brings together fashionistas, fashion designers, milliners, boutique owners, fashion bloggers, critics and writers, stylists, marketers, photographers, and many others who share a common zeal for fashion. Their efforts not only support programming, but also help the IMA acquire new works for the collection. FAS has recently underwritten the acquisition of couture pieces by Alexander McQueen, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Issey Miyake, and Vivienne Westwood. “FAS members have been invaluable supporters of the Textile and Fashion Arts Department,” said Niloo Paydar, curator of textile and fashion arts. “Their passion and commitment to raise funds for acquisitions of important designer fashions will ensure the growth of our fashion arts collection for generations to come.”

Two Scholars Named as Mellon Curatorsat-Large In April 2014, the IMA announced the appointments of Dr. Christian Feest and Dr. Constantine Petridis as the next Mellon Curators-at-Large Program scholars. Feest and Petridis will assess the entirety of the IMA’s Native American and African collections, respectively, concentrating on the aesthetic quality of pieces as works of art and their historical importance. Initiated in 2011, after the IMA received a $1.025 million grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Mellon Curators-at-Large Program has allowed the IMA to engage renowned scholars to conduct cutting-edge research on the IMA’s collections while simultaneously experimenting with new ways of enhancing scholarly breadth across its large and encyclopedic holdings.
ABOUT DR. CHRISTIAN FEEST Dr. Christian Feest
Dr. Constantine Petridis
One of the world’s leading experts on Native American art, Dr. Christian Feest has studied Native American collections in Europe and America for more than 50 years, with much of his work focusing on the early collecting of Native American material in central Europe and the accurate documenting of those collections. He is the author of numerous books and articles in the field. Feest was born in Broumov, Czech Republic. Presently Feest serves as a guest curator at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Lokschuppen Museum in Rosenheim, Germany. In addition, since 1968, Feest has curated or co-curated numerous exhibitions at the world-renowned Museum of Ethnography in Vienna, where he was director from 2004 to 2010. Since 2004, Feest has taught as an associate professor at the University of
Vienna, from which he earned his PhD in 1969, and has also held professorships at the University of Chicago and the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.
ABOUT DR. CONSTANTINE PETRIDIS Dr. Constantine Petridis has been active in the field of African art for nearly 25 years, both as a scholar and a curator, and has worked with a wide variety of private and public collections in both Europe and the United States. Petridis was born and educated in Belgium. He has been curator of African art at the Cleveland Museum of Art since 2002. From 2005 to 2008, Petridis also served as consulting curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, where he oversaw the installation of the renowned Frum Collection of African Art. He has held pre- and postdoctoral fellowships from the
Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Belgian American Educational Foundation. Petridis holds an MA in art history and archaeology (1991) and a PhD in art history (1997), both from Ghent University in Belgium. Having published extensively on the arts of Central Africa, Petridis is currently organizing a major traveling exhibition on the arts of the Senufo peoples of West Africa.

A Thank You to Our Donors
We extend our gratitude to each donor who made a gift to the IMA during our fiscal year, July 1, 2013â€“June 30, 2014. Second Century Society and Patron Circle members and Annual Fund contributors provide vital support for the IMAâ€™s daily operations, from art conservation to educational and public programs to the maintenance of the gardens and grounds. Donors of works of art foster new understanding of the permanent collection while increasing its quality and scope. As IMA corporate sponsors and grantors address the special project needs of the present, members of the Legacy Circle ensure the future of the IMA as a preeminent art institution by including the Museum in their estate plans.

Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886–1904
Georgia O’Keeffe and the Southwestern Still Life
Through September 7 / $12 Public, $6 Students and youth ages 7–17, Free for IMA members and children 6 and under / Allen Whitehill Clowes Special Exhibition Gallery / Floor 2
November 2, 2014–February 15, 2015 / $15 (Tue–Thr), $20 (Fri–Sun) Public, $12 Students and youth ages 7–17, Free for IMA members and children 6 and under / Allen Whitehill Clowes Special Exhibition Gallery / Floor 2
How is a portrait more than just a likeness? Can a portrait reveal elements of character, identity, and personality? And what is the effect when that portrait is rendered according to certain rules of color and methods of brushwork? These are subjects addressed in Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886– 1904, a groundbreaking exhibition organized by the IMA that brings together some of the most fascinating portraits of late 19th-century Europe. More than 50 oil paintings and drawings reveal the range of expression offered by the Neo-Impressionists’ treatment of an enduring theme. This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of the Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, with additional support provided by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
See page 4. Organized by Joseph S. Czestochowski, Produced by International Arts®. Curated by Charles C. Eldredge. This exhibition is presented by The Alliance of the IMA, with additional support provided by Barnes & Thornburg LLP

For America: Prints of the American Art-Union
Bill Viola: Capturing Spectacle and Passion
Through September 28 / Free / Susan and Charles Golden Gallery / Floor 2
September 26, 2014–January 20, 2015 / Free / June M. McCormack Forefront Galleries / Floor 4
Between 1840 and 1851, the American Art-Union promoted American art by distributing engravings of the best American paintings of the day to its nationwide membership through annual lotteries. These engravings, by the most skilled American engravers, reproduced major paintings by such artists as Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, George Caleb Bingham, and William Sidney Mount that were in the possession of the Art-Union.
Fabled Kings Through January 4, 2015 / Free / Frances Parker Appel Gallery / Floor 3 Featuring 16 Indian paintings dating from the late 17th to the 18th centuries, this exhibition highlights works from the IMA’s Asian collection and a selection of paintings from a Panchatantra series painted at Udaipur, on loan from a private collection. The Panchatantra is based on an ancient Indian oral tradition that uses tales to teach life lessons. They are often illustrated by anthropomorphized animals, similar to Aesop’s Fables. Shown for the first time together, the works in Fabled Kings represent the vivid and varied tradition of Indian narrative painting.
Working with video since the early 1970s, Bill Viola is a pioneer of the medium and internationally known for works that explore experiences of physical and spiritual transformation—birth, death, waking, dreaming, emergence, and transcendence. Two works are featured in the exhibition: The Crossing (1996) and The Quintet of the Silent (2001). The striking compositions chart the extremes of human emotion and reflect Viola’s efforts to, in his own words, “represent the unrepresentable.”
The Onya La Tour Collection: Modernism in Indiana October 17, 2014–April 12, 2015 / Free / IMA Alliance Gallery / Floor 2 Presenting 30 works from the unconventional collection of an Indiana native, The Onya La Tour Collection: Modernism in Indiana highlights the early Modernist movement in America. Born and raised in Indiana, Onya La Tour (1896–1976) worked for the WPA in New York during the 1930s and befriended many of the artists whose work she would collect and display in her own gallery. When La Tour moved back to Indiana in 1940, she made her unusual collection available to the public free of charge in her Brown County farmhouse, which she called the “Indiana Museum for Modern Art.” In 1972 La Tour donated much of her collection, which features figurative and abstract styles, to the IMA. This exhibition marks the first
time many of her paintings, drawings, and prints have been displayed since their days in Brown County. The Indiana University Art Museum is also lending four works from La Tour’s collection.
The Rise of American Modernism October 24, 2014–July 26, 2015 / Free / Susan and Charles Golden Gallery / Floor 2 The American Modernist movement and the European masters who shaped it are featured in this exhibition of 29 prints, drawings, watercolors, and photographs from the IMA’s permanent collection. The avant-garde of French art made inroads into the American mainstream in the early 20th century largely through the efforts of photographer Alfred Stieglitz. His 291 Gallery introduced the works of Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Paul Cézanne, as well as young Americans such as Marsden Hartley, John Marin, and Katherine Dreier. Along with Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, Dreier founded the Société Anonyme in 1920 to foster the Modernist movement. Works by these and other artists are included in the exhibition.
Be sure to visit these exhibitions that each focus on a single work from the IMA’s collections, examining it from a special perspective. Coat of Many Colors Through January 25, 2015 / Free / Gerald and Dorit Paul Galleries / Floor 3 Science and art come together in the IMA’s conservation science laboratory, where in-house scientists study works of art to learn more about their history and how to preserve them. Coat of Many Colors illustrates how scientific imaging and dye analysis has narrowed the possible creation date of a recently acquired Uzbek garment. The research also contributes to our understanding of the influx of modern European synthetic colorants into traditional Central Asian textile arts.
Continuing the Work of the Monuments Men September 5, 2014–September 6, 2015 / Free / Steven Conant Galleries in Memory of Mrs. H.L. Conant / Floor 3 The 2014 release of the Hollywood movie The Monuments Men created much public interest in the issue of Nazi art looting before and during WWII. It also increased awareness of Allied efforts to locate, safeguard, and restitute cultural property after the war. Examination of one work from the IMA’s European collection reveals the complexities of provenance research, and the difficulties sometimes involved in reconstructing a painting’s history of ownership.
