Reflecting Terre Haute

February  3 – March 10, 2012

Kicking off the Museum’s 70th anniversary, Reflecting Terre Haute is a two-part exhibition featuring historic work from the Swope collection and submitted works from contemporary artists. The works in both halves of the exhibition interpret the community in which the Swope Art Museum was given a home by its founder, Sheldon Swope.

The exhibition will include photography from ISU art professor Fran Lattanzio, who, with the help of Austen Leake, documented Terre Haute locations depicted in historic works as they appear today. The additional contemporary artists’ submissions also yield a variety of artistic expressions and show the diversity of today’s Terre Haute.
