The Kinsey Institute is offering two shows this season, featuring a mix of artwork from the archives along with several paintings borrowed from private collections. Beauty and the Beast: The Erotic Art of Ian Hornak showcases a major gift of drawings and paintings from the estate of 20th century American artist Ian Hornak. Although best known for his photo-realist landscapes, Hornak’s early work from the late 1960s often focused on the nude figure, at times combining human and animal anatomy. Flora presents a broad selection of photographs, prints, paintings, sculptures and books that feature plant or landscape imagery.
The Kinsey Institute Gallery is open 1:30 to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday or by appointment. Admission is free. Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guided group tours of The Kinsey Institute may be scheduled by calling 812-855-7686.
