The Swope will celebrate the Indiana Bicentennial with this exhibition of work by the Hoosier Group—a colony of Indiana Impressionist painters who worked in the late 19th century and early 20th century. The group first received their name in 1894 by Chicago art critic Hamlin Garland during an exhibition at the Denison Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Hoosier Group is primarily known for their depictions of the Indiana landscape.
