24th Annual Victorian Tea


Brown County Art Gallery
http://www.browncountyartgallery.org

Professional storyteller Stephanie Holman will present her program “The Search for a Place and Time to Paint.” This piece was commissioned by the Indiana Historical Society at the time of the publication of “Skirting the Issue,” about historical Indiana women artists. Ms. Holman’s program focuses on three artists who spent a great deal of time in Brown County: Ada Shulz, Alberta Shulz, and Marie Goth.

Favors, raffle, and door prizes will be provided. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. for shopping with our vendors. Tea is served at 2 p.m., followed by the program.

This fundraiser for the Gallery Foundation is one of our most anticipated events and sells out each year. Seating is limited, and advance reservations are required.

Art and a Movie: Thomas Hart Benton

02:00 pm to 05:00 pm
IU Cinema
https://artmuseum.indiana.edu/calendar/180408-aam.html

This documentary double feature highlights the career of American artist Thomas Hart Benton, a master of Regionalism. Through home movies and interviews, Burns takes viewers on a journey through Benton’s life. Miller and Zuzolo focus on a single masterwork: the artist’s monumental Indiana Murals currently housed in three locations on the IU campus. The murals’ 22 panels trace the state’s cultural and industrial history from its early native peoples to the Great Depression.

There will be a pre-screening talk at 2 p.m. in the IU Auditorium. It will be presented by Nan Brewer, the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper.

The event will take place from 2–5 p.m. on Sunday, April 8. This event is free but ticketed. To acquire advanced tickets please visit the IU Cinema’s website.

Art and a Movie is sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.
