The State of Nature exhibit at the Grunwald Gallery of Art features artifacts and visual art pieces that showcase Indiana’s prehistoric past.
The exhibit features various different natural artifacts as well as pieces from more than 15 artists. According to the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design's webpage, the critical role of this exhibition is to have attendees gain an appreciation of the beauty and aesthetics of Indiana’s nature and biodiversity.
The Grunwald Gallery, located in the Fine Arts building, seeks to collaborate with artists, scientists and scholars to create exhibits exploring science and the humanities in a visually artistic context.
“This was something we have worked on for a couple of years,” said Betsy Stirratt, Grunwald’s founding director. “I am really passionate about nature because I think we take it for granted.”
