2012-2013 was an exciting year at the Swope Art Museum, marked by important exhibitions and publications, the continuation and expansion of popular programs and events, and by many building improvements. Most notably, the major 70th anniversary exhibition, Dual Visions: John Rogers Cox, Artist and Curator, opened in October. Focusing on the Museum’s founding director; it brought many out-of-town visitors to Terre Haute. In addition to loans of art work from the Cox family and from other private collections, the exhibition included paintings from the collections of the Saint Louis Art Museum and the Flint Institute of Arts. 2013 brought more interesting events with the Museum’s participation in the community’s Year of the River celebration. Exhibitions and programs examined the significance that the Wabash River and bodies of water more generally have had on our lives. Last fall, the Museum published Swope Art Museum: Selected Works from the Collection, featuring essays by Laurette E. McCarthy, Ph.D. about 70 works of art. This handsome book offers detailed information about the selected works of art alongside beautiful, full-color images. An undertaking of nearly two years, the result is a publication that will stand as the definitive work about the collection for years to come. The past year was a time for making repairs and improvements to the building, including resurfacing and repairs to the floor on the third floor, thanks to an in-kind donation from Hardwood Renovations; new electrical wiring on the third floor; the addition of banisters to the staircases; two window replacements on the third floor; and façade work. Improvements continue in 2013-2014 with a roof replacement, the completion of façade work, and more window replacements courtesy of 100+ Women Who Care, Vigo County and other generous donors. Fundraising events were well attended. A special preview and dinner for the opening of Dual Visions: John Rogers Cox, Artist and Curator included presentations by Laurette McCarthy and Guille Cox. Mardi Gras, organized by the Art Hoppers of the Swope Art Museum, broke its previous record and netted more than $56,000. The annual Marilyn Wheeler Pendergast Spring Dinner, held the first Sunday in May, also set a new record and netted more than $33,000. Several major grants were awarded to the Swope during the year, including a matching grant from the City of Terre Haute for façade repairs, a two-year grant for operating funds from the Indiana Arts Commission, and an arts grant from the City for the Summer Youth Art Program. Foundations such as the Indiana Chemical Trust, the Weston Wabash Foundation and the Frederick R. Benson Trust were very generous with support. The Museum was fortunate to receive generous contributions from individual and corporate members, exhibition and program sponsors, in-kind donations, and contributions to special projects and the annual fund. The community’s strong support enabled the Swope to end the fiscal year in the black for a second year. Thank you all for believing in the importance that great art has in both our lives and in adding to the cultural and economic strength of the Wabash Valley.
