Indiana entered the Union in December of 1816. To celebrate our statehood, we're looking at a work from the #fwmoa collection completed by celebrated Hoosier portrait painter Edmund Brucker.
Bob Cross, not to be confused with Bob Ross, is a contemporary artist whose work stems from the simple notions of day-to-day life. Here, we get a peek into his process as he creates a painting, "It Started Like This".
An artist always hopes, at least implicitly, that her art will inspire a positive change in others. But does she hope or even expect that her work will change her? On January 1, 2019, painter Elly Tullis impulsively turned to the image of the biblical figure Mary for artistic inspiration, herself exhausted from the demands of motherhood. Over the next year, paintings of the Virgin Mary poured from her mind to create the Theotokos series now on view at FWMoA. In this interview, she shares with us her development as an artist since her childhood and what has happened to her as a result of this series.
