Changing Times

Formed in 1883 by well-known suffragette May Wright and her husband Theodore, the Art Association of Indianapolis’ (as it was then known) first exhibition was a humble selection of 137 artists work, displayed at the old English Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.

After changing their name to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1969, their collections, exhibitions and educational programmes grew substantially, and in 2005 they expanded to their new state-of-the-art $74 million, 152 acre campus.
